Just a tiny fraction of my cast. If anyone wants someone not listed, feel free to ask anyway. Beware of tropes.
- Vincente Jarvis; antiques dealer and amateur sleuth in London. Eccentric, somewhat geeky, deliberately anachronistic, enthusiastic, convivial. Started out taking simple (mostly non-criminal) "cases" for fun. - Art Dyers; high school English teacher and Vincente's Watson. Quiet, muted, amiable in a gentle way, isn't entirely geek-less himself, frequently a Deadpan Snarker. Brought Vincente's first "case" in the form of his brother.
- Lennox Johnson; steampunk invisible man. Responsible, has Chronic Hero Syndrome, good-humoured, unassuming, loyal. Started out as a Cockney boy and eventually became a member of an 19th-century superhero team. - Walt Gilliat; a "powerless" superhero. Acerbic, cynical, prone to long periods of silence, generally stoic, innately passionate. His only "power" is a heightened reflex/senses, which he tends to use for Sherlock Scans.
LaRe An omnivorous reader with a strangely retentive memory for trifles.
