Jem Characters

Orphans that are taken care of by the Starlight Foundation which Jerrica and Kimber's parents, Jacqui and Emmett Benton, founded. They first lived at the Starlight House for years, along with Jerrica and Kimber, like sisters. And Aja and Shana were once Starlight Girls. They now live at the Starlight Mansion.

Starlight Girls


Ashley Larsen

A tough and independant 12 years old (or 13 according to herself) girl who had trouble getting along with the other Starlight Girls when she first arrived to Starlight House as the 14th Starlight Girl. At one point she was even a fan of the Misfits. She is interested in both designing fashion, which Shana helps her with, and likes to sing and practice guitar. She seems to like to workout, as she was once seen taking part of a class by Aja. And also helps Video edit a music video once.

This was the last of the original 12 Starlight Girls that Christy invented, and she was first planned to be named Heather Thomas and have red hair.

She goes to South High school.

Her last name was not given by Christy, but by Sandy Fries in the episode "Alone Again".

Unlike all the other Starlight girls, she was most likely adopted by Emmett Benton, without Jacqui, and probably with the help of Mrs. Bailey and Jerrica and the others.

From the episode "Starbright Part One: Falling Star" and on, she has blue eyes instead of brown, like the Hasbro doll.

She also appears in two Superstar clips.
