ALICE KENNEDY (30s): An attractive, powerful woman. Younger than the men. Just as smart as Neville. Knows that she is.

CHARLES (50s-60s): Strong and powerful. The man others go to when one needs to go to a man in order to get things done.

EDWARD (30s): Lifelong childhood friend of Neville’s. Not as smart as him.

RIGHT HONOURABLE ANDREW SUTTON (60s): Shadow Minister (Home Affairs) in Parliament. Upper class by birth. An ordinary looking man, an overachiever, who thinks he is extraordinary.

THE BOY (teens): Younger brother of an intern of Sutton’s. Working class, but looking to rise above his station.

THE GIRL (teens): Contest winner. Mature, smart. Smarter than Sutton.
