Then, that person kills and murders, and the Devil feeds on this blood of dead Shadysiders. And Goode gets whatever he wants. He becomes Sheriff. His brother becomes mayor. All of Sunnyvale gets better and better. Josh: And Shadyside doesn't... Deena: And the Goodes do it over and over, again and again. One Goode from every generation passing down the evil. Solomon... Solomon's son... firstborn to firstborn. Right to today. Right to Sheriff Nick Goode.
~ Deena explaining the Goode's scheme.
The Goode Family are the main antagonists of Netflix's horror trilogy Fear Street, based on R.L Stine's books of the same name. They're a rich and influential family who have set its roots in the town of Sunnyvale, Ohio. They have kept their grip on the population by performing satanic rituals that allows them to get whatever they want, in expense of selling the souls of people in Shadyside, their rival town.
The Goodes have been existing since really old times, but their shady origins start at the year of 1666. They were founders and owners of a settlement known as Union, lead by Elijah Goode. Elijah's brother, Solomon Goode, was a self-turned outcast who decided to live outside of the settlement to become a farmer, but this proved unsuccesful to him as the land was infertile. Affected by his bad luck and the recent death of his family, Solomon gets fed up with life and decides to make a Faustian bargain with Satan in order to get power, wealth and influence amongst his family. He sold the soul of Union's pastor and minister, Cyrus Miller, as he was against Union's extremely fanatical religious believes. The result was a wave of blight that rotted the food, and a possessed Cyrus Miller killing all the settlement's childrens, ending with most of the lineages of Union. The enraged town decided to blame these acts of witchcraft to Sarah Fier, Solomon's lover, following accusations made by a man named Caleb that she was a lesbian with Hannah Miller, Cyrus' daughter. Sarah discovers that Solomon is the one behind the curse, so he decides to turn her over and frame her for his crimes. Sarah and Hannah are condemned to the gallows, but she lies to whole town that she was a witch and cursed Hannah to do his bidding, in an attempt to save her from a grim fate. Sarah gets hanged and Solomon gets away with everything. Determined to become the most respected man of his family, Solomon shares his knowledge of the ritual to them so they could continue with expanding their wealth and influence. The Goodes decide to split Union in two towns: Shadyside and Sunnyvale. Sunnyvale would act as their primary headquarters, a town that would turn in ''the best place to live''. Shadyside on the other hand, would turn on their killing grounds. A place whose only reason of existing is to harvest souls to the Devil.
He was Solomon's brother and leader of Union. He led most of the angry mob that looked for Sarah Fier, alongside Caleb. After Solomon's rise to power, he was mostly forgotten by his family.
The responsible for the curse and his family descent to darkness. Solomon created the curse as his life was full of sheer bad luck and misfortune. He murdered and old witch in the woods called ''The Widow'' to steal a grimoire from her, same that he used to create the curse. This grimoire has been carried out through the generations and is an important piece in starting the ritual. Solomon is viewed as the first patriarch of his family and also his most important member.
He was Nick and Will's father, and also Sheriff of Sunnyvale. Sheriff Goode died from unknown reasons while Nick was in a very young age, leaving him with the responsibility of being a Sheriff and also continuing with the curse. He is the one behind the possession of Ruby Lane, a young student that killed her friends and boyfriend with a barber blade.
He is Nick Goode's little brother and current mayor of Sunnyvale. Will was a second son, which means he can't perform the ritual, but that didn't stop his family from benefit him through Nick. When his brother died, he blamed him for all the current killings in Shadyside in order to cover his tracks. it is possible that he is the one that stole the Grimoire from the tunnel to continue the curse once again.
Nick was Sunnyvale's Sheriff and last bearer of the curse. He is the only member of his family to have performed to ritual more than once, being responsible for the Camp Nightwing Massacre and the Mall Massacre. Using his position as the Sheriff, Nick could cover the tracks of his family with ease by framing the innocent people he possessed, and even other bystanders if necessary (like Martin). He died from an eye stab after confronting Deena Johnson. His death ended with Shadyside's curse, but the grimoire was stolen by a mysterious stranger, which means it can happen again in a future.
