"Let's turn on the juice and see what shakes loose!"
His name-proper is "Beetle Juice Jr.", but is known better throughout the Neitherworld as "Beetlejuice", (all one word). He is the son of Gnat and Bee Juice (who nag him to get a job and to keep clean), and he has a "disgustingly cheerful" younger brother, called Donny Juice, who whether he realizes it or not gets on his older brother's nerves. Beetlejuice takes more after his mother in looks, (but he is taller than her), and inherits his crooked teeth from his father. Beetlejuice's usual attire consists of a matching suit with vertical black-&-white stripes, a magenta-colored shirt and a black tie, and a pair of beatle boots.
Beetlejuice, (often addressed as just "Beej" or "BJ" by Lydia), is able to change shape, transform and conjure objects, teleport, and perform other feats of magic, although his powers can be reduced by various circumstances, such as encounters with Sandworms, (despite the fact that he has enough power to subdue or repel them with ease), or when his head becomes separated from his body. At times he must pause to think of exactly how to use his powers to escape a precarious situation unscathed.
His name derives from the star, Betelgeuse, which Ė coincidentally, given Beetlejuice's love of foul odors and "armpit music" Ė is the armpit of the constellation Orion.
Beetlejuice's powers vary in strength and intensity. The original movie has him using various ghostly tricks ranging from possessing humans, shape shifting into various objects and creatures (A giant snake, increasing size, sprouting spikes over his body), summoning and animating inanimate objects to serve him (like Ms. Deetz artwork), performing magic that affects the living and ghosts, teleporting, and overall turning his domain into his personal plaything. These abilities make him an excellent Bio-Exorcist who specializes in getting rid of the living.
