|Ember McLain is one of the major recurring antagonists of Danny Phantom. According to one of the creators for the show, before she died, Ember was an unpopular high school-aged girl who had large dreams of becoming a rock star. One day a boy asked her out to the movies. She waited all night for him to show up, saying, "He's just running late." When morning came and he didn't show up, Ember went home. She was so exhausted that she fell asleep and didn't wake up when her house mysteriously caught on fire. She died in the flames, which possibly gave her the name "Ember". Her song "Remember" is possibly based on the above events prior to her death.
In Grim Tales: Rebirth she has aged and married Skulker. Together they had a son Inferno, who also took her last name. She often goes out with her best friends, who are still assumed to be Kitty and Penelope Spectra as shown in the episode "Girls Night Out". She often holds concerts in the Underworld as well. She seems to be a lot more concerned about Inferno than Skulker and is the one who wants to be with Skulker despite him cheating, for the sake of Inferno. Throughout the story she feels remorse for not caring as much as she should for Inferno.
