Victor Van Dort , is the shy, nervous and somewhat bumbling fiance of Victoria Everglot , and accidental husband of Emily , the "Corpse Bride". Victor is a very shy, and easily startled individual, never being very sure of himself and tending to stammer over his words. He often struggles socially, stuttering when he first met Victoria and stumbling when he tried to recite his vows at the wedding rehearsal. His nervousness led him to ruin the wedding rehearsal and made both his parents and Victoria's parents very upset with him. Likewise, his first reaction when confronted with Emily is to act like a fool by running away from her for no reason, something which he repeats three times in the Land of the Dead.

Emily "The Corpse Bride" , is a reanimated corpse who was a talented and wealthy lady in her lifetime, as well as the self-proclaimed bride of the young Victor Van Dort after their encounter at the woods. She was murdered by her ex-fiancee Lord Barkis Bittern and indirectly killed him shortly before gaining her freedom. It is unknown exactly how she died, although she may have been stabbed, given the context of her death, and since Barkis is known for carrying a sword. As a corpse, she is still graceful. Her current only colorful features are her purple lips, in contrast to her monochromatic blue coloring.
