Ted Klein[2][3] is a professor from Miskatonic University who escorted the only English translation of the Necronomicon to New York for a public display.


Ted Klein was highly concerned with the danger presented by putting the Necronomicon on display at the New York City Public University for five days. On Saturday, at 6 p.m., Clark Ashton assured Klein the tome was safe. The next morning, Klein was present when the Ghostbusters arrived to investigate the Necronomicon's theft. While distraught with the possibility of a ransom, Klein was more concerned with the spells being read aloud and summoning the Old Ones.


  • Ted's last name is a reference to T.E.D. Klein, a Cthulhu Mythos writer
