Celeste is a character created by Melanie Martinez for her film, K-12. She is a student at K-12 Sleepaway School who is friends with Cry Baby. She is portrayed by Megan Gage.


In K-12, Celeste was revealed to be an empath guided by Lilith (a spirit guide). When her eyes turn black, it represents her being awakened to a higher level of consciousness.


Celeste is first seen on the school bus smoking a blunt. When one of the Blue Boys annoys her by continuously touching her hair, she uses her powers on him, causing his hands to swell up. Later on, she is seen playing tennis with Cry Baby and Angelita. Celeste is the first to notice that a bubble Cry Baby blew caused the tennis ball to float away.

Cry Baby and Celeste notice that Angelita's skirt is stained with blood after she complains about "the worst stomach pain [she has] ever experienced". The three rush to the bathroom to cover it. During the food fight, Celeste hides with Cry Baby, Angelita, and Magnolia under a table. When Magnolia attempts to join in on the action, Celeste discourages her.

Celeste orchestrates a plan alongside her friends and Fleur, a former member of Kelly's posse, to take down Leo and escape the school. However, this plan is foiled when Cry Baby accepts Leo's invitation to the school dance; Celeste appears to be the most disappointed. Leo soon reveals that he knew about their plan and forces the students to dance for hours.

Cry Baby later breaks the spell and frees the students, who all run out of the building. When Lilith appears with the gate to return home, Celeste is one of the first to leave, along with Magnolia, Fleur, and Ben.


Celeste is brave, level-headed, and intelligent. She is thoughtful and patient, biding her time to create a master plan to destroy the school.

In Alternative Press magazine, Celeste was revealed to be Aries sun and Pisces rising. Her zodiac sign was described as meticulous, intelligent, practical, analytical, reliable and modest, but also as overcritical, fussy, fastidious, harsh, conservative and judge mental.

Powers and Abilities

As an empath, Celeste is shown to have magic/psychic powers, where her eyes turn completely black when she uses them. Below is a list of powers that Celeste has displayed thus far:

  • Telekinesis: Like all empaths, Celeste has demonstrated the use of telekinesis to manipulate objects with her mind's force. The power is first shown in "Wheels On the Bus", where she uses it to inflate and swell up one of the Blue Boys' hands.
