Scooby-Doo Caracters: Daphne Blake

Daphne's Character biography

Scooby-Doo Caracters: Daphne BlakeTogether with her other teenage cohorts, Fred Jones, Shaggy Rogers, Velma Dinkley, and Shaggy's pet Great Dane Scooby-Doo, Daphne would engage in solving various mysteries the gang would run across. She was often portrayed as the stereotypical "damsel in distress", being the one female in the group who is most likely to get kidnapped, tied up, and left helpless, earning her the occasional nickname "Danger-prone Daphne." (This was explained further in the first film.)

Although she was not as smart as Velma, Daphne would attempt to solve her problems in a fashionable way. She later became more confident and started playing a more active role as time wore on. In What's New, Scooby Doo?, Daphne has also been known to open locks or do other tasks with strange items from her purse. It has been theorized by many viewers that Daphne and Fred are attracted to one another, something the later direct-to-video features and the Warner Bros. feature films toyed with while never officially putting them together (although Daphne did kiss Fred in the gladiator scene in Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase). Daphne has also been shown as a bit athletic and is a black belt in martial arts.

Daphne's character gained more prominence in the early-1980s Scooby-Doo spinoffs, when the focus of the series briefly shifted to her, Scooby-Doo, Scrappy-Doo, and Shaggy. This was particularly noteworthy in the spinoff The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, where Daphne replaced Fred as the group's leader.

The youthful Daphne portrayed in A Pup Named Scooby Doo would commonly call upon her butler, Jenkins, to do various tasks, such as ridding her of people, beating a monster up, freaking out, etc. This version was also portrayed as much more fashion-sensitive, easily scared, and smaller than her future self.

Daphne 's Relatives

Relatives of Daphne shown during the series' run include:
George R. Blake: Daphne's father, the creator of the product "Blake's Bubbles".
Elizabeth Blake: Daphne's mother.
Uncle Matt: Daphne's uncle, a cattle rancher.
John Maxwell: Daphne's uncle, a movie director.
Olivia Derby: Daphne's aunt.
Jennifer: Daphne's cousin.
Dannika: Daphne's cousin, a famous French model.
Shannon Blake: Daphne's Scottish cousin.

Daphne's tendency to get into trouble is apparently something of a family trait. As her cousin Shannon explained in Scooby-Doo and the Loch Ness Monster : "For centuries we Blakes have been falling through trap doors, finding secret passageways, getting kidnapped, and getting caught in overly complicated booby traps of our own design. If there's one thing we Blakes are famous for it's being danger prone."
