6. Vicky Ravioli
is the ex-wife of Don "Big Jim" Ravioli. While she is older than he is, she was still surprised when he demanded a divorce to marry that tart, Carrie Crooner. When the divorce came through on March 20th, Vicky was overheard saying, "I raised my husband from a boy to a man for another woman". She received a $50,000 settlement from the divorce.
9. Inspector Neville "The Nose" Nutella
will be attending the function to investigate the murder of the Black Hand Gang two nights ago.
Play this character as you wish. You can be a straight arrow detec-tive (good cop) or one on the take with the mob (bad cop)!
is Don Wannabe's little sister. Donna has become quite popular with the movie picture actors. She say she was secretly seeing Big Jim on and off for the last few years. Lately, she has been seen making a play for Rhett Bumbler's attention. Some speculate that she has always been jealous of the attention Big Jim lathered on his daughter, and this is her way of getting back at her.
is the wife of U.S. Congressman Darrin Toosteal. Mary is the perfect political wife. Elegant, dignified, and she turns a blind eye to her husband's escapades. She comes from old money and powerful connections.
is the wife of Cash Steal.
is a high profile attorney who spe-cializes in “Family” Law.
Hobart T. King
made the disaster film “On the Wagon”. It was supposed to be a western, but the few that saw it, said it was a disaster. We have heard that he is here scouting for talent and investors for this new romantic film.
is a little known reporter who is beginning to out scoop the big boys.
R. K. Oswald
is the owner of W4DR Radio Station. His station is one of the most listened to in Chicago. He also hosts a talk show.

Dr. Hugh DeMann
claims to be a world-renowned physician, but nobody seems to have heard of him.
is a very eccentric heiress. She has oodles of cats and dresses quite strangely.

is a for hire bodyguard. While many find the occupation unusual, or even scandalous, they would not dare say anything about it. She was trained in the Far East and it is said that she can kill a man with one strike.
2. Madam MeMe
is a very successful madam who has been married to Don Wan-nabe for fifteen years. With their combined head for business, they have amassed a fortune. Tonight, they open their newest venture, The Four Deuces Speak-Easy.
4*U.S. Congressman Darrin Toosteal: also plays Don "Big Jim" Ravioli
Some say Darrin's rise to fame was a result of his close friendship with Don "Big Jim" Ravioli. He could very possibly become the next President of the United States. You have to wonder how he could hope to become the next president, when it is well known that he has such a close affiliation with a man of Big Jim's reputation.
7. Rebecca Ravioli
is the daughter of Don "Big Jim" Ravioli and Vicky Ravioli. Rebecca has been telling everyone that she is engaged to marry Rhett Bumbler.
Her father refuses to allow the marriage.
10. Al Capone
was brought from New York by Don Wannabe to work in his club. While his job title is bouncer, everyone knows that he is really just a hit man for the Family.
runs the horse race ring for Don "Big Jim" Ravioli. He made an agreement with the new Telegraph Company to be the only person able to receive the live horse race results immediately in the Chicago area. He then sells these results to local bookies for half of their take. In exchange for all his work, the Don gives him 5% of the earnings. Some say he is not happy with this percentage and feels that he deserves a full partnership in the venture. He and Rebecca Ravioli have been good friends for years.
Mayor "Big Bill" Bumpkin
is the Mayor of Chicago. He is friendly and honest, which is why people do not believe the rumor that city funds have been vanishing. He and Don "Big Jim" Ravioli have been good friends for many years.
Jack "Greasy Thumbs" Guiseppi
is Don "Big Jim" Ravioli's accoun-tant.
is beginning to develop a name for himself. They say he makes some of the best hooch available this side of the Mason-Dixon line.
was voted “Most Talkative Person” every year in college. I don’t’ think any more than that needs to be said. If you have further ques-tions, Glenna will be happy to regale you for hours with the answers. Glenna is the new cocktail waitress at The Four Deuces.
is the brother of Serina, and son of the deceased Guido Siren. Sam is looking to join a new family. They say he is very talented, but can he be trusted?
is the infamous actor well known for his trigger temper and lofty demands.
is a quirky psychologist, whose favorite pastime is analyzing everyone she meets.
is a little paranoid. Okay, so maybe he’s a lot paranoid. His theories are interesting, to say the least.
claims to be a forensic ento-mologist who prefers to be called a maggo-tologist. Her knowledge of bugs can reveal when, where, and sometimes how, a victim died. At least, these are the claims she makes. Sounds like voodoo science to us.

is a belly dancer. She claims to have been betrothed to an Arab Prince before he was murdered.
is a celebrated artist. In fact, she is almost famous. They say she produced some of the best forgeries of famous works seen in recent years.
3. Capo "Toto" Tequila
is the self-proclaimed Boss of Bosses. He will be visiting us from New York. Speculation is running rampant on why he is coming here tonight. When it involves the Capo, it just has to be something big.
5. Carrie Crooner-Ravioli
was a jazz singer in one of Big Jim's clubs when he fell in love with her. He divorced his wife Vicky Ravioli to marry her. She is attending tonight to do a special performance. People speculate that she only married Big Jim so that she could use his connec-tions to be discovered as the star she is.
8. Baroness Ravioli
is the mother of Don "Big Jim" Ravioli. Of course, she is not a real Baroness, but being the Don's mother does tend to keep people from saying any different. The Baroness loves to wear tiaras and lord it over anyone she considers 'beneath' her, which happens to be most people.
is a gambler who blew into town six months ago. No one knows much about him, except that he is not very good at cards or dice. His attempts to cheat are so laugh-able that most people tend to overlook it. What could Rebecca see in him? Big Jim would never tolerate this buffoon as a son-in-law.
is the mother of Carrie, Don "Big Jim" Ravioli's new wife. She chaperoned Carrie and Big Jim everywhere they went before the marriage. She does not approve of Big Jim. After they were married, she moved into the new house with them just to make sure that Big Jim treats her baby right.
No one knows anything about this man. Not why he is here or where he comes from.
is the wife of Jack Guiseppi.

is a Famous Psychic. Sally claims to hear voices of the dearly departed.
is called the gentleman thief. Ladies practically swoon at the thought of being robbed by him.
is all the rage with the ladies. Suave and debonair, he can charm most ladies right out of anything he desires.
claims to be in town on business, but no one seems to know him or agree on his business.
is an extremely successful accountant. Some wonder just how he came by all of his expen-sive little toys. Many seem to be outside the reach of even the best accountant’s income.
is no relation to Mr. Smith. She is the owner of Soul Reaper, Inc. Her business license says she is a bounty hunter, but there are whispers that she is really an assassin.
