Iodine (voiced by Becca Lish)
An anthromorphic wallaby, she is the middle-aged of the three and is Anemia's best friend. She helps Anemia out with her goal.
He is the youngest of the three, and is Anemia's brother. He is energetic and ready to take a risk if he wants to help them with their goal, even though they don't want him to get involved.
Anemia plans to visit a haunted place called Malaria Manor, having heard about the story of Mrs. Malaria, who had left her mansion 13 years ago and never came back. Her cat, still waiting for her to return, became a ghost over time and couldn't find peace. Believing that the ghost cat must be hungry, Anemia and her best friend Iodine plan to hold a séance, so that the spirit can wander to the otherworld after having its last meal, but Dropsy wants to tag along. However, he is stopped by them so that they have no distraction for their task.
After arriving at the Mansion (and Anemia expressing her fondness of the place by finding the atmosphere to be "chillingly spooky"), they go to the dining room, wanting to hold the séance in there. Unbeknownst to them, Dropsy came along to help, yelling "I wanna play!", scaring Anemia and Iodine, but then they all hear a faint meow. They decide to put tuna and a flashlight on Dropsy's head, making him bait, while Anemia and Iodine are looking for the "cat ghost".
When Dropsy finds it, he begins screaming loudly. Thinking he is in danger, Anemia and Iodine quickly run to him, but when they arrive, they only find Dropsy playing with a black kitten and he uses the flashlight to create shadow puppets on the wall. Anemia checks the kitten out if it's cursed, but doesn't find anything suspicious. Wanting to have the kitten on his head, Dropsy once again shouting loudly "I want my kitty!". Being OK with that, Anemia, Iodine and Dropsy all go back home, thinking the whole story may have been an exaggeration. However, when the kitten is seen again, it forms a creepy looking face, implying that a ghost is indeed possessing it. Dropsy asks if its tummy was growling, and says his is too.
