CHINADOLL - Early thirties, a Maoist/communist spy. She is the Chinese equivalent of the classic femme fatale.
RANDOLPH - Early thirties, an American operative. Smart, cool and collected, but in many ways, an innocent abroad.
SIMONE - Twenties, a Chinese songstress with a few tricks up her sleeve. Willful, emotional and a little silly.
AMBASSADOR - Fifties or older, from Belgium. Seedy, amoral and dryly funny, he is a steadfast admirer of Asian women.
