CHARACTERS

LILY HART

Young and beautiful, you’re the Last Chance Saloon’s most popular dancer, and you’ve made a pretty comfortable life for yourself. Yet you yearn for glamour and adventure because Ghost Creek just isn’t big enough for you. You have your sights set on brighter horizons and you’re determined not to let anything stand in your way.

Suggested clothing: Elbow-length gloves, ruffles, lace, feathers, lipstick – anything eye-catching that might help you separate a man from his hard-earned dollars.

Character actions: A girl has to take care of herself, so you’re often primping and preening – fixing your hair, reapplying your rouge and batting your eyelashes. People shouldn’t underestimate you, though, because you’re not afraid to muss up your hair and stand your ground when you need to! 

Character relationships: Scarlett is far too helpless for your liking and you can’t help but roll your eyes each time she feels a swoon coming on. You can spot a swindler a mile away, so you take everything Sawyer says with a pinch of salt.


WILLIAM HARGREAVES

You were one of the early settlers of Ghost Creek and you’ve seen the town change dramatically over the years. In your eyes, it’s become nothing but a hotbed of depravity and, as a God-fearing man, you feel it’s your duty to clean it up. It’s time to stop turning the other cheek and stand up to those no-good sinners! 

Suggested clothing and props: As the town’s undertaker, you’re always dressed for business in black trousers, a black waistcoat, a white shirt, a black ribbon tie and a top hat. You often have a tape measure draped around your neck, just in case you need to size someone up for a coffin.

Character actions: More than a few residents of Ghost Creek have been met with your withering, disapproving glare. You’re known to clasp your hands together in prayer when you find yourself in a particularly testing situation.

Character relationships: In your eyes, there are no redeemable souls in this group of five people. You have no desire to be close to anyone here and you’re not afraid to come across as judgemental.


SCARLETT MAY BEAUREGARD

You’re a young Southern belle and the daughter of one of the most important engineers in the country. You were raised with servants at your beck and call, and had more riches than you knew what to do with. So why are you here in Ghost Creek, so far from home?

Suggested clothing and props: It’s nothing but the highest fashion for you! With frilly dresses, silk gloves, jewellery a-plenty, a fine linen handkerchief and a fan, accessories are key to your style. Most importantly, make sure you come wearing a hat because a lady should never be seen without one!

Character actions: Whether it’s the heat or your delicate Southern sensibilities, you often use your fan to stop yourself falling into a swoon. Coming from a prominent society family, your etiquette is nothing short of impeccable – you would never dream of slouching, spitting or (heaven forbid) cussing!

Character relationships: You know you’ve seen Mr West somewhere before, but you can’t quite recall where. You detest Clara’s total lack of manners and savour every chance you get to say so!
