Ashlee Lambert is a minor character in This Totally Bites! and the main character in At First Bite.
Ashlee is a 12-year-old vampire in 7th grade. Her full name is Ashlee Samantha Lambert. She inherited her mother's big baby blue eyes and silky blonde hair, but unlike her mother, whose hair is cropped short, Ashlee's hair is very long and almost to her waist. They look alike, which makes Ashlee happy, since she thinks her mom is pretty, but Ashlee has her father's chin, which Ashlee isn't sure is a good thing. She is slender and has rosy, glowing skin and is sometimes helped with blush, but like any vampire is cold to the touch and is extremely sensitive to sunlight.
In This Totally Bites!, when she was at the student council meeting, she wore a white belt on a peach-colored dress, with a charm bracelet and patent leather flats. In the beginning of At First Bite she wears teeny diamond stud earrings. When arriving to Los Angeles she wears a turtle neck with cords with a duffel bag filled with some of her things. When she was going down to the beach she wore a pink bikini, with pink tinted sunglasses, flip flops, a towel tucked under one arm, and her tote bag. Her first options for her to wear at Santa Monica Academy was a blue-and-white romper, a yellow dress with a green trim, or a lavender tank top.
When living in Manhattan, in her apartment, Ashlee had a white canopy bed in her bedroom, above the streets of Manhattan, where she could see skyscrapers from her pillow because of the windowsill that was by her bed. Across from the room she had a desk with a desk chair and on the desk, she usually kept her laptop with a screen saver that is a slideshow of all the pictures in her iPhoto album, like Ashlee giving her acceptance speech as student council president, posing next to the cupcake tower at her birthday party surrounded by dozens of admiring faces, and trying on a dress in Bloomingdales which, according to Ashlee, every girl at school wanted the next day. Near by the desk, she hung Christmas lights strung across the wall that go all around the room, that she forgot to take down. She also had a dresser with a mirror which was nearby her closet, where in the back she kept a red-and- white cooler at the back of it. According to Ashlee, it's a hot new vampire must-have and it's also for keeping her Sanga! at a certain temperature to stay fresh, and she can carry the mini-cooler in her backpack. Her new room in Los Angeles is in a huge cream colored house with a wrap around balcony. Her room is more more private because it's down the hall. It has a floor to ceiling window that opens up to the balcony. From there facing ahead is the golden sand, crashing waves, and in the distance a Ferris wheel of the beach.
