The Madness Underneath
The Shadow Cabinet

Bhuvana Chodhari, more commonly known as Boo, is a new member of the Shades. Boo has a fake I.D. age of 18, which is why she was permitted to attend Wexford despite no longer being a teenager. Her first task is to watch over Rory, by enrolling in the same courses and becoming her roommate.

Appearance Edit

Boo is several inches taller than Rory. She is described as having a dark complexion with brown eyes. Her dark brown hair is long and straight with a streak of cherry red down the right side. By the beginning of "The Madness Underneath", she cuts her hair into a bob, and dyes a violet edge to her bangs. Boo likes to wear heavy black eyeliner and dangling gold earrings.

Biography Edit

Early Life Edit

Boo dislikes her first name 'Bhuvana', and states that the only person to call her by her proper first name is her Gran. She is of Indian descent, but grew up in Britain and Rory mentions that her accent "is as British as they come; fast, urban and kind of Cockney."

Gaining the Sight

Boo gained her ability to see ghosts in the aftermath of a drink-driving accident that occurred two years prior to events in The Name of The Star. When Boo was eighteen years old (and a self-proclaimed 'club kid'), she allowed her friend Violet to drive home under the influence. The car collided with a bollard, injuring Boo and rendering Violet unconscious and bloody. The first ghost Boo came into contact with was Josephine 'Jo' Bell, who came to the young woman's aid immediately after the car crash. Jo and Boo became extremely good friends until Jo sacrificed herself to save Rory from the new Ripper.

The Name of the Star

During The Name of the Star, Boo is sent to Wexford Academy after hearing that Rory Deveaux may have the sight. Boo pretends to be a teenager in order to gain admission to Wexford, and subsequently becomes Rory and Jazza's third roommate. Rory follows Boo one day and happens to discover that they both have the Sight. Boo and her colleague Stephen take Rory back to the flat to explain that Rory isn't hallucinating, and that she actually has the rare ability to see ghosts. Afterwards, Rory and Boo go back to Wexford, and Boo tries to help by telling Rory about herself, showing her Alistair is a ghost, and bribing hIm with 80's music to write a paper Rory was stressing about. The next day, she takes Rory to Goodwin's Court and strongarms Stephen into taking everyone ghost - spotting in the Tube tunnels so Rory can 'officially' see a ghost.

The girls decide to dress up as Zombie Spice Girls for the school dance. While there, the Ripper approaches Rory and tells her to follow him outside. She does, and they have a short conversation. Boo quickly finds them and pretends to talk on her phone while trying to get close enough to terminate the Ripper. Unfortunately, he throws Boo in front of a passing car before she can do it. Boo is immediately taken to hospital, and returns to Wexford several days later in a wheelchair, which makes her a minor celebrity among the students even if they hadn't actually liked her before.

When it becomes clear Rory is the Ripper's next target, Boo bodyguards her, but being in a wheelchair, is forced to stay behind twice - while Rory, Stephen, and Callum find out who the Ripper was in life and go to meet him, and again when Rory leads him to Wexford to get the last terminus and kill Rory.

Boo later visits Rory in the hospital. She is obviously upset about what happened to Jo.
The Madness Underneath

During The Madness Underneath, Boo's leg is still in a cast, so she doesn't have a large impact on the plot, but when Stephen takes Rory to their new flat, Boo is happy to see her.

When Callum and Boo come back from having her cast removed, Stephen tells them about what happened at the Royal Gunpowder Pub, and instructs everyone to look for suspicious cracks around London.

After the Shades are called to investigate Dawn Somner's death, Boo calls Rory to help.

During Rory's rescue, Boo smashes the windows of Jane's car, and detains Devina until Rory is out of the car.

The next morning, Boo goes to wake up Stephen but finds him unresponsive.
