Calaca im Monster High Universum.
"Calaca" is Spanish for "skeleton" and refers to the skeleton imagery associated with the Mexican celebration of the Tag der Toten, natively known as Día de los Muertos. A related term is "calavera", Spanish for "skull", which is sometimes used instead. Popular calaca 'characters' are La Calavera Catrina and Santa Muerte.
While undeads of all kinds have been believed in throughout time and culture, few rival the association with death that living skeletons hold. This was the case for both Europe and the Aztecs by the time the Spanish invaded what would later be Mexico. The Aztecs had a number of festivities to honor Mictlantecuhtli and Mictecacihuatl, their gods of death represented as skeletal figures. When the Spanish invaded, the traditions of these festivities were merged with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day into a new festival called Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead. In celebration of this day, drawings and sculptures of skeletons that are having a good time are produced, as it is believed that the dead don't like to be mourned.
A small area of unclarity that remains from this is whether the Skullastic Superintendents are living skeletons or living dolls looking like skeletons. The assumption lies with the simpler former answer, but it is possible the latter is true.
