There are loads more ghosts and characters available than whats listed. If you want to play them, go for it! Also if you need help with face claims, I'm happy to help!
Kid at death
Casper is the most obvious cartoon ghost you could have. He's a kid, he's friendly, what's there not to love? He would definitely be a school ghost I think. Probably Hogwarts. Hell maybe he is even HUfflepuff's house ghost. It's up to you really. Same with his background since it's left pretty open. I'd just love to see more ghosts.
Also his uncles are encouraged if you are inclined to make them!
Another giggly child ghost. Again, could be a school ghost. Since she was at an all girl's monster school perhaps the girl's dorm ghost at Beauxbatons? She's kind of high pitched, energetic, and bubbly, so she'd be one of the nicer ones I'd imagine. Her age is up to you, but she appears to be a tween-early teen in the movie. Still, it's really up to you. Tadashi is willing to be the big brother to all the kid ghosts!
Young at death
Danny Phantom Ghosts
There are so many options to choose from with Danny Phantom's canon. Ghost chicks, ghost dudes, ghost kids, a ghost who changes ages, another who shape shifts. Hell there's even a dragon or two around there! They don't have to be good, or necessarily hang around a school. Skulker could be a magic creature poacher who passed on, Desiree could've been a seer in her life time. It's really all up to you.
Though if you want a lot of school interaction some might include Young Blood, Sydney Poindexter, Penelope Spectra, Bertrand, Lunch Lady, Box Lunch.
I don't really know much about this show. I've seen a couple of cringe worthy episodes with some poodle-man and hick cat spirits with leaves on their heads ordering fast food. Really though, the characters are Yokai, or Japanese spirits. Just personify one and bam, you have a ghost. There's loads of wacky characters to choose from. Some may be more ridiculous than others (I'm looking at you weird pee inducing elephant).
This character is from a lovely slice of life show called Natsume Yuujinchou's Book of Friends. Pretty much a kid who sees ghosts, and has a book with the names of Yokai written in it due to his grandmother winning fights with them. He is able to release them from the contract to serve by giving their names back. He doesn't really want to fight yokai. He'd rather be friends or have nothing to do with them.
I imagine he could be a student getting harassed by the ghosts around him. Perhaps if still a student, he's an intern in the spirit division? As an adult working there is encouraged, but he could also just be a guy who puts up with a lot of ghost shit too.
Like Yuujinchou, he's a guy who can see stuff other people can't. In his canon it's demons, but they can always just translate to spirits in the Bombverse. He's a trouble child, but after loosing his foster father, he promises to be the best exorcist so he could slay satan. He's a typical Japanese-punk-with-a-heart-of-gold character. He may be stupid but he also shows a lot of talent.
Since in canon he is a student who goes to exorcists cram school, I can definitely see him being a student and obnoxious intern. He's loud and runs head first into everything, how can you not love that?
Also pretty much any other character from Blue Exorcist is welcome. They all could be well adapted to being in the spirit division of the ministry. Bon, Shima, Konekomaru, Shieni, and Izumi could all be part of an intern program while Yukio, Shura, and other adults can be actual professionals working with them. Plenty of opportunity.
Ghost Hunt Characters
If you haven't seen Ghost Hunt stop what you're doing and watch it now. It's a simple but beautiful anime about this girl breaking equipment and getting into ghost hunting to pay the guy back. It has a lot of great characters.
There's Kazuya Shibuya AKA Naru the Narcissist. He's the young owner of the ghost hunting company who gets his equipment broken. He is serious, kind of full of himself, and rather cold towards people letting him down. He knows people have talent though, and will respect and work with them. He's kind of mysterious and a jerk.
Mai Taniyama is a student who got dragged into it. She does possess some psychic ability, and eventually learns how to properly help with research and investigations. Being new to it, she can be started by the spoopy easily. She's compassionate towards the clients and coworkers, but also easily annoyed by their antics too.
Monk (that's not his real name it's his profession but idk his actual name cause no one uses it) is a laid back guy who tries to help calm the mood. He's well informed about spirits, and is one of the older people of the group, sort of taking care of the others as a big brother figure.
Masako is a young medium who clearly crushes on Naru. She gets hurt or ill in almost every investigation and seems totally useless. Her way of helping is by sensing the aura of the room, where the spirit might be, and it's feelings. I clearly don't like her but don't let that stop you from apping her if you want.
John Brown is an australian priest. He's polite, nice, and is always trying to help where he can. He tends to assist by blessing items or water for protection. He is very empathetic towards others and the ailing spirits, making him a good middleman.
Last but not least is useless lady number two, Ayako. She's one of the older characters as well, and a shinto priestess (I think that's what she is? idk). She is hot tempered, often having snide remarks and occasionally even hitting Monk when he makes his own comments. Most of her conclusions are "it's an earth bound spirit." Her exorcisms also don't seem to work very often because her ritual requires a connection with a tree spirit or something like that.
How could I leave classic characters out? The original four are all in cartoons and video games. Unfortunately Holtzmann and the crew are only mentioned. But there are new playable characters in different video games, some of which are female! (and one looks like Holtzmann just saying) I don't think these guys really need explaining though.
The resident Brit of Bombarda, Sigyn lives in the U.K. where she’s just graduated as a chemist/mad scientist. She has been endowed with the names Sig the Sweet (awwww) but also Sig the Slayer due to an unfortunate habit of truly torturing the characters she claims to love so much. As of November 2016 she has gained the titles 'Queen of Suffering' and 'Pain Mom'. And she is very proud of them.
If you’re looking for juicy drama of grand proportions for any of your characters then she’s the girl you want, but if you’re looking for something cosy and nice... well, maybe give her a wider berth.
Originally from the Great Plains of the USA, Kyros (or Ky) recently returned to the plains after two years spent in the Last Frontier where she taught in a coastal fishing village. She is adjusting to living in civilisation again and her main coping mechanism is, you guessed it, writing and hoarding all them characters.
Speaking of, she's got a great slew of characters and really enjoys plotting with them. While she's already got a small army, don't be surprised if a few more under her alias pop up... she's a hoarder.
Site layout, contents and premise belong jointly to Sigyn & M (an old admin) who worked very hard on all of this thank you very much.

SPOTLIGHT FEMALE // Evangeline Riot played by Jonsie! "I love this character, she's so much more complex than she appears on the surface which is just testament to how well Jonsie writes her. She seems like any old tough cookie on the outside, but different characters manage to dig out different parts of the inner Evan. And yet they all make total sense, all these different sides that different people see, which is honestly how it is in real life too. Evan seems to finally be getting some GOOD influences in her life too and I'm so happy for her, even if she's not quite managed to shake off the bad ones just yet!"
SPOTLIGHT MALE // Klarion Bleak played by Kitten! "I've known this character for years now but I think we've seen so many different sides of him recently that I think he definitely deserves a nomination here! Between the vulnerability and the almost sweetness he's showing to Evan, and the vitriolic hatred and soon to be defensive rage he's showing Ed, we're seeing so many new sides to him that Kit's not had a chance to flex in a while, and I love seeing characters really pushed to the edges of what we're used to. And the fact that after knowing Klarion as a character for so wrong, I still find him unpredictable in threads, I think is just a great sign of Kit's tremendous skill."
SPOTLIGHT DUO // Evangeline Riot and Klarion Bleak played by Jonsie and Kitten “I love seeing these two interact and I look forward to seeing more threads with them.”
SPOTLIGHT THREAD // Loose Lips Sink Ships with Edward Nygma, Klarion Bleak, & Oswald Cobblepott, played by Sigyn !, Kitten, and Dannie! “Edward sneaks back into the Nest house after having an illicit affair behind his grieving partner's back. He is caught by Klarion, who decides to give him the verbal beatdown of his life over his behavior, and things aren't helped when Oz himself shows up and prompts Edward to reveal his secret... this thread has jut been a blast to follow, and I love all the players in it.”
SPOTLIGHT MEMBER // Sigyn ! plays Phoenix Wright, Edward Nygma, and Maximilian Ruber

14 Jan The big news this time around is of course that M is sadly leaving us as a staff member on Bombarda. She will be missed, but we wish her all the best for the future. Our latest UPDATE covers what changes this may mean for Bomb, but in general after a little restructuring of the staff team, not much should change for our members. We have an update to the ongoing MoE event in there too, as well as details on the upcoming Activity Check and OTSs. Happy new year to you all, and we wish you an awesome 2018!

You can find out the rest of the details HERE so go take a look (and start planning your outfits for the themed December Dance)!
15 Nov The villain takeover event is being extended through the month of November so you've still got loads of time to wrap those exciting AU threads up. And once that board closes, as with most other events, it will be moved to the "Past" board as a subforum so you can still continue the threads~ We've also added Vampires to the list of playable beings onsite so if you've been itching to try your hand at a vamp now's your chance! Sign-ups have gone up for our OOC holiday events - Secret Santa and the Advent Drabble. Details about the IC event for the holidays will go up on December 1st so keep an eye out for that! We're also rolling out donor frogs and updating snitch levels!
1 Oct The site wide event for October has gone up - A Villain Takeover just in time for Halloween! Get your spoop on and see what the world would be like in these Villain-run AUs! Everything from big brother TV screens in every major city in the UK to something akin to a zombie apocalypse from an underground wizarding civilization! It can all be found in this event board! Have fun and wreak some havoc - or save the day!
