Abstract: We investigate Foulkes characters for a wide class of reflection groups which contains all finite Coxeter groups. In addition to new results, our general approach unifies, explains, and extends previously known (type A) results due to Foulkes, Kerber-Thürlings, Diaconis-Fulman, and Isaacs.
