Maud Martha, Daughter of the Dusk: Middle aged thing of ordinary allurement, innocently aspires to bottom rung middle classness, circa 1950s.
Johnnie Mae, ’Bout Town Gal: In her 20s, wrestling for identity, purpose and values. Mostly losing…with an occasional victory of sorts.
Alfred, The Surrealist: Young grad student, a practicing artist engrossed in discerning the anatomy of life.
Lincoln West, The Youth That Hurt Too Much: The outcast, young, blundering, over compensator, and attention starved. An occasional kind word would have change the course of his life.

Mrs. Sallie, The Real-Realist: A mid-middle aged, an elder of experiences, capable of squeezing the best out of life.
Satin-Legs Smith, The Independent Man: A flash sport. A very responsible gent who presently has no responsibility save that of living life in the best possible manner in a high peacock tradition.
