GRACE NEVILLE - Grace, seventeen, cannot withstand impropriety or imperfection. While an idiotic comment may run off others like rain water, it gnaws at Grace, causing her much vexation. Smarter than anyone around her, she feels she can manipulate and outwit all to achieve her goals; peace and tranquility.
BETH HOBBS - Taller, prettier, and just as smart as Grace, Beth, nineteen, is Grace’s accomplice and even mentor in deception. But Beth is more ruthless and seems to have no conscience.
HENRY HUNTINGTON - An enigma. Henry, twenty-five, tall and handsome, seems gallant and sociable. But it is a learned behavior, a mask Henry wears the few times he is in public. His emotions run deeper, and immaturity remains from his lack of interaction. Thus, he gets easily hurt, often walking out of the room or loudly proclaiming his opinion.
NAOMI TOURNEAU - Beautiful and thin, Naomi is as shallow as a rain puddle, and not as intelligent. Her interests are; money, jewelry, clothing, and home furnishings.
ELEANOR HUNTINGTON - Eleanor, fifteen is the typical gawky, plainlooking, approval-seeking teen. In Grace, she finds a sisterly figure and role model, seeks desperately for Grace’s close companionship.
COLONEL HUNTINGTON - The Colonel, fifties, has seen everything and nothing could really shock him. Though he looks every bit his age, he relishes the company of young women, complimenting them at every turn.
JOHN NEVILLE - John, twenty-one, fair but expressionless, seems to have no emotions at all. He too is not exceptionally bright.
MR. NEVILLE - Although an attorney, Mr. Neville, late forties and amiable, does not seem overly educated. The home’s patriarch, he seems very comfortable in his position.
MRS. NEVILLE - Mrs. Neville, forties, delights in John’s future bride probably because she is even more dim-witted, if that is at all possible. She is either elated or wretched with despair. There is no middle ground.
CONSTABLE - A very precise, clear thinking man in his fifties. He dislikes the aristocracy, and worst of all -- those who manipulate the system.
