MONSIEUR CHATRAND - tall, good-looking, rather foreign in appearance, and suave in manner. 30-35.
ALEXANDER - a slight, boyish figure. He stands rigidly erect, as if in a cataleptic condition. The voice and manner of his speaking are in the themselves weird and uncanny. There is a slow and terror-stricken rhythm in his tone, and that contracts against the calm and strong poise of Chatrand.
JOHN CARRINGTON - a man who advertises his prosperity and his importance. About him here is a slightly belligerent air. He is perhaps 55, red-faced, and grey-haired, with a well trimmed, iron grew mustache.
BEVERLY LANE - truly beautiful and about her there is an air of wistful sadness. She is not more than 20 years old. She is soft and gentle, and evidently timid of the arrogant man who is her escort. Upon her features there is written a genuine refinement and intelligence.
DOCTOR BLACKSTONE - middle-aged physician of distinguished appearance.
MRS. WIMBLETON - buxom, flightly, talkative. About 35 or 30.
MALONEY - a stage electrician. Age 30.
MR. YOUNG - an alert theatre manager. Age 40.
SERGEANT SCHMIDT - rather stout and of German extraction. Age 35.
INSPECTOR RILEY - a big, dominating plain-clothes officer. Age 50.
ESTELLE - a beautiful French girl.
TOMMY - a man of Japanese descent
