Verona Dempsey was an importer and an amateur sleuth. She was a rival to Velma Dinkley; she had the same initials 'V.D.', wore the inverse colours, and even had her own catchphrase, "Jinkers."

Physical appearance

Verona is a Caucasian adult female with chin-length, blonde hair, a pale complexion. She wears a red, short-sleeved turtle neck sweater, an orange waist coat, an orange skirt, long red socks and orange sneakers. She also wears rectangle-shaped glasses.


She is arrogant about her superior intelligence, and she is a sarcastic rival to Velma.

Skills and abilities

She seems to have uncanny powers of observation and deduction. However, much of her knowledge of the criminal activity in town comes from her being a criminal herself.
