Are You Afraid of the Dark Wiki

The Brauns were characters created by Betty Ann. They appeared in the episode "The Tale of the Nightly Neighbors".


Mr. and Mrs. Braun and their son Lex, recently moved from Ukraine to a North American country. They settled down in Emma Toll's neighborhood. Emma and her younger brother Dayday were excited to have them in their neighborhood at first. That was until Emma became very suspicious of them.

First of all, because she found out they came from a part of Romania that is near Transylvania. They wore only black clothing, the color of evil and darkness. The three of them were never seen in the daytime. Only leaving their house at nighttime. Also their son Lex didn't go to school. Also the fact that none of the other kid's in the neighborhood even heard of him. Also everyone in the neighborhood began getting an energy draining sickness. One that came out like an outbreak. Just after they moved into the neighborhood.

Emma soon sneaked into their basement one night when they weren't home. Her mission was to find their coffins. Then she would reveal and expose the truth about them. However when she was out her brother couldn't stop their mom from inviting all of them in for a visit. During their visit, they revealed that the two of them work in the medical field, and they were studying to become paramedics. Also they asked Dayday a favor: Since Lex hasn't been feeling very well lately, if he could be invited over the next night. Then he could hang out with him and play video games. Dayday nicely but nervously agreed

Emma didn't not find coffins in their basement yet. But in the fridge were many bottles of blood.  Dayday breaks into the basement to to tell her that were coming. This was more than enough for Emma to convince her brother to help her the very next morning. The mission was to hunt them and drive stakes into their hearts. Emma and Dayday go over to their home the next morning. For protection they wore cross-shaped necklaces. Also they armed themselves with garlic and stakes. Then they were most surprised to be greeted by Mr. and Mrs. Braun, first thing on a sunny morning. They also proved themselves to be immune to the cross-shaped necklaces.

They tell Emma and Dayday that they've finally been happily switched from night time shifts to daytime shifts. Also that they have been helping the hospital by storing extra units of blood in their basement. Emma goes home feeling embarrassed and foolish. while her brother mocks her and laughs at her.

Little do they know, that in their basement Mr. and Mrs. Braun knew that Emma and Dayday were in their basement. They say they're not worried, because a vampire can't enter a person home without being invited. Now tonight their master has been invited over to visit them. The reveal that their son Lex is the vampire and he's their master. He has been invited over to the Toll's house. This is possibly because Lex may have been bitten a while ago. So now he has cursed his parents as his loyal servants. Or that his parents are day walker vampires whom are immune to the sunlight. Since we see that Mrs. Braun opened a bottle of bottle of blood. Then she smelled it looking like she was in paradise. Lastly they remind their son that no one will ever believe that a little boy can be a vampire.
