MILLY BLOSSOM - our young and beautiful heroine; only a shop-girl. Of medium height, in her early twenties, with a face so beautiful that once seen it can never be forgotten. In fact, so graceful is her carriage, so radiant her charms that it is difficult to believe that she is only a shop girl. Refreshingly frank and earnest, she wins friends everywhere by her naturalness and refinement. Truly, here is a heroine to be proud of.
COURTENAY KENILWORTH - a well-nourished villain who stops at nothing to gain hisown unscrupulous ends. A man in his mid thirties with a heart so black that he would stop at nothing in order to gain his own unscrupulous ends. Extremely vain, he is suave and polished on the outside until his temper is aroused, and then he unleashes his fury on those who refuse to do his bidding. A large black moustache adorns his upper lip and he twirls the ends of it unceasingly.
CHARLES REDFERN - President of Humdinger's Department Store. A man of medium height, inclined to be portly, about 50 years of age. His thinning hair is iron grey and a moustache of the same color decorates his upper lip. Horn-rimmed glasses add to his severe appearance. He is entirely at home in the business world, where he orders his employees around in a brusque and impressive manner.
TERRY MAPLE - a stock-girl at Humdinger's. A small, vivacious and high-spirited girl of eighteen who, because of her slight build, appears to be even younger than she is. Both her speech and manners are crude, but she is generous and sincere.
LUCY MANVILLE - a traveling saleswoman. A woman of medium height in her mid twenties, very aggressive and self-reliant. Lucy is ambitious and determined to succeed.
NOBLE HUMDINGER - our noble young hero with the manly bosom. A tall, magnificently proportioned chap in his mid twenties, the sort of hero that girls dream about but seldom meet. His smooth-shaven face is handsome, indeed, and reflects the noble sentiments. It is obvious at a glance that he is to the manner born, and his speech and characteristics are those of the real gentleman.
MRS. ALBERTA HUMDINGER - his aristocratic mother. A tall, aristocratic appearing woman in her early fifties, well preserved for her years and possessed of a haughty and regal bearing. She is the type of woman who is accustomed to having things her own way.
VICTORIA MANNING - in love with Noble. A tall, statuesue girl in her early twenties, a younger edition of Mrs. Humdinger in that she, too, is cold, haughty and accustomed to having things her own way. She can never forget her great wealth or her social position.
