Doug Sellman is a character created by Kiki. He appeared in the episode "The Tale of the Captured Souls".


Doug is a strong and athletic man. He is big on exercise and he enjoys playing sports. During the events of the story, he, his wife Sally and his daughter Danny all headed to a resort hotel in the country by the lake. He was hoping that he and his family could enjoy the fresh air and have a nice relaxing vacation.

He and his family found out the the hotel was being managed by a creepy young man named Peter Kirlan III. He found the boy to be a bit strange but he liked him, and felt bad that he was at his parents hotel all alone. So he encouraged Peter to join in on their ball games, much to his daughter's chagrin.

Soon he didn't realize that he and his family were beginning to age rapidly. This happened because Peter was really an elderly mad scientist who specialized in youth restoration to stay young forever. So there were mirrors all over the hotel. Whenever he and his family would look in the mirrors or be near them, it would cause them to rapidly age. He and his wife just thought that all their years of stress were finally catching up with them. So he and his wife mostly just wanted to rest and take it easy. He and his wife were unware that soon they would died from old age!

His daughter Danny quickly figured out what was going on. She stopped looking in the mirrors and she found where Peter was using his youth capturing machine. She set his machine in reverse while he was inside of it. Then it overloaded and it broke down. Peter rapidly aged back to his real old age. Then he and his wife were restored back to their real ages. When he and his wife woke up he and she felt as good as new.

Then the next day, he and family decided to leave the hotel. His daughter never told him the truth about Peter. Then after leaving the hotel, his daughter convinced him to finally take them all to the beach.
