Charlie Baker (M, 35-55) a pathologically shy British man who has a very unfaithful wife, no personality that he can think of, and a need for peace and quiet. He has accompanied Froggy against his own better judgment.

Betty Meeks (F, 60+) The owner of the fishing lodge, Betty is pleasant, wise in some ways, naïve in others. She is a good-hearted, generous, “down-home” Southerner who.

Reverend David Marshall Lee (M, 22-35) Neither the stereotypical pious young man nor the backslapping evangelist, he appears to be a “regular guy”, one that you would like to have on your side…or so it would seem.

Catherine Simms (F, 18-30) A Southern belle, she stands to inherit a large sum of money, and controls the financial fate of her simpleminded brother, Ellard.She is the fiancée of the Reverend Lee, has a ready wit and a sharp tongue, but really just needs someone to listen to her.

Owen Musser (M, 35-60) The Tilghman County property inspector.Seemingly untrustworthy, he is using his position as property inspector to leverage things for his own personal gain, particularly as it relates to Betty’s fishing lodge.

Ellard Simms (M, 15-25) Catherine’s brother, Ellard is agreeable and slow-witted. He works as a sort of handyman for Betty and needs a considerable bit of instruction in his tasks. Ellard befriends Charlie.
