|~ Kal challenging Marnie Cromwell.|
Kal (also spelled "Cal") was the main villain of the 2001 sequel, Halloweentown 2. He was also the only son of Kalabar who after his demise at the hands of the Cromwell Family who saved both Halloweentown and Earth, drove him to avenge his father's death and resume their sinister plans for overthrowing the human race and destroying the Cromwells' once and for all.
He was portrayed by Daniel Kountz.
The Witch Marnie, has just spent a year with her grandmother, Aggie. While hosting a mortal neighborhood Halloween Party, Marnie tries to impress a cute new boy, Kal, (unknown to Marnie, he was Kalabar's son) by showing him Aggie's magically-hidden room. Kal, unbeknownst to Marnie, took the opportunity to steal Aggie's spell book.
Soon Aggie noticed unwelcome magical symptoms. She and Marnie traveled to Halloweentown to investigate and fix the problem before the portal between Halloweentown and the Mortal World, open only on Halloween, closed at midnight. They discovered that the whole town had been turned into a made-to-match black and white silent film, and that the inhabitants had been turned into humans (or rather, into what Halloweentownians' saw as humans being: dreary and monotonous beings concerned only with such things as dressing sensibly or sorting socks). The victims included Marnie's goblin friend, Luke. Aggie diagnosed that as the "Grey Spell".
Aggie contacted her grandson, Dylan back home for a spell from her book, and Dylan and Sophie discovered that the book was missing. Marnie and Aggie learned that Kal was actually a warlock, and the son of their sworn enemy, Kalabar (from the previous movie). Cal broke the Code of Merlin, a way of life for all magical beings, by stealing Aggie's book to limit her ability to hinder his attempt to complete his father's revenge on both Halloweentown and the Mortal World. Aggie believed that if he was willing to go that far, then there was nothing that they could put past him.
Aggie searched for her spare copy of her spell book at her house in Halloweentown, but it was missing and she despaired. During a conversation between Aggie and Marnie, about another way to reverse the "Grey Spell," Marnie inadvertently said the spell: "Trapa" which reverted Luke back to his goblin form. Unable to explain the spell's reversal, the group soon believed that it was temporary. The trio traveled to the lair of the well known junk magnet of the universe, Gort, who acquired lost items from both realms. He had been discolored by the Grey Spell and had sold the spare spell book some time ago. Unfortunately, Aggie lost her color and sorted socks with Gort and everyone was trapped in his house. Marnie used time travel to go back before the Grey Spell happened. Unfortunately, when they got there, they learned that Gort had sold the spare spell book to Kalabar about 50 years prior (as Luke says, "Man, Kalabar must have been working on this world domination thing for decades!"). By remembering what things Marnie had been, hastefully, saying back when Luke returned to (Goblin) normal, they learned that, in her haste, she said "trap a" as "trapa", which is "Apart" spelled backwards. Despite being able to use a wizard's lost time-line, to speed up getting back to the present (as, due to the fact that, no matter what time period it was in Halloweentown, time kept moving in the Mortal World). They arrived too late and the portal shut tight with a big, strong, metal, bulletproof door, and trapped Marnie in Halloweentown.
Kal, having enspelled Halloweentown into a monochrome talkie caricature of the Mortal World, was at work enspelling the Mortal World into a Super Technirama 70 monster movie caricature of Halloweentown. Sophie and Dylan realized that Alex, believed to be Cal's father, was actually a Golem intended to distract Gwen. To make their mom believe that, Sophie created a fly. Alex, being made of frogs, ate the fly and ended up getting dispelled by a furious Gwen. Being informed of Kal's plot to turn humans into the creatures that they "mocked" on Halloween, Gwen tried to take off her mask. Cal made the mask stick to her face, then continued his spell.
Marnie, trapped in Halloweentown, freed Aggie, contacted her siblings through a shrunken head, and they created a new spell that forced the portal between Halloweentown and the Mortal World to reopen permanently. Cal produced vines and both spell books in an attempt to prove his own superiority, which failed when Marnie took them both from his hands. Cal was then sent away by the vines, apparently according to his own desire, and the family broke both spells, which set things right in both the Mortal World and Halloweentown.
