Retlin Family is a family that lives in Stoneybrook, CT. Cary is first introduced in Stacey and the Haunted Masquerade.


They used to live in Oak Hill, Illinois before moving to the area. The family used to have a dog in Kristy Power! and looking for a new one.

Mr. Retlin used to be a policeman until Cary was 8 and now he’s a locksmith. He decided that it was dangerous work and quit the force. Cary picked up a few things about police work from his father.
