Hunter Bentley's Family 

Fam Tree Hunter Bentley 2.png


Hunter's Siblings




The nerdy Revel is a robotics engineer for Hemloxx Science. The engineers are a tight-knit, secret group. Gossips speculate that they are trying to create the most human-like robot ever known to humankind. Is this a smart thing to do? The experts pretty much agree it's going to backfire in the long run. Revel has always preferred studying instead of socializing and being alone instead of around others. A tad selfish at times, Revel can be a bit of a shadow lurker from their lack of social skills.

Revel has low morale at work because, for eight months, Revel's covered for the vacant Vice President of Operations position. Revel has consistently refused to be part of the executive team and wants to work in the robotics lab. The SymbioTom project needs Revel's attention full-time, as the release-to-market date is concrete and cannot be changed. Well, it could be changed by the top executives, but they are standing firm with no flexibility. Therefore, all glitches need to be worked out immediately!

Suggested attire: Nerdy attire, or you can wear a robot costume, as they inspire you.

  Tru is an estranged younger sibling of Hunter Bentley and a technician for Clean Water - We Promise, a swimming pool maintenance company in Bramford Bluff. Tru has been under rapid fire with complaints about the chemicals in the customers' swimming pools. There are rumors that Tru threw human safety concerns out the window and overdosed their clients' pools with chlorine to avoid dealing with algae blooms. After many complaints about hair turning green, eyes and skin burning, and intense chemical aromas, the company's owner hired a water chemist to investigate the pools on Tru's client list. Tru could be fired, or even worse, criminal charges could arise if there is evidence of harmful chemicals in the water. Tru constantly switches to the newest fad diets and talks in a very slow, meticulous cadence. And don't try to discern what Tru is thinking through those unreadable expressions. Tru betrayed Johnny and Hunter Bentley by speaking to the tabloid press two years ago, and Johnny Bentley banished Tru from the family.

Tru has been soul-searching for a new occupation, as the swimming pool technician job is ending once all the lawsuits from Tru's clients have been filed against Tru's employer. Tru would love to get a job with the family business, but while Johnny and Hunter Bentley walk the Earth, that's impossible. In addition, Tru regrets spilling the family secrets. 

Suggested attire: Casual attire. Sun hat and zinc oxide (the white film of sunscreen) on your nose is optional. Little pool next as an optional prop.

People say what Reign Bentley touches turns to hypothetical gold. Reign was born with a mind for business. From the fourth grade until high school graduation, Reign operated a profitable convenience store out of commandeered lockers for fellow students. After college graduation, Reign became the second-in-charge at Hemloxx, serving as the Chief Operations Officer (COO). Upon Hunter's untimely demise, the managing director appointed Reign as the CEO, leaving the critical COO position vacant. Impulsive, Reign claims to be allergic to plans made in advance but still manages to be quite the perfectionist - and a fantastic dancer to boot. Reign is a single parent by choice with four adopted offspring. Unfortunately, three of Reign's adult children still live at home.

Suggested attire: Business attire and props to make you appear wealthy and fashionable.  You are now the face of Hemloxx, Incorporated - one of the most giant corporations in the world.

 Hunter's children



You'll find Zene Bentley standing partially behind drapes or pressed against the wall at any gathering. A ghostwriter for online profiles, Zene could make the Grim Reaper himself look like a prized town bachelor. Zene is timid with a rather dull personality but is likely to be the most unselfish and caring person in Bramford Bluff. Zene is always the first one to stop to help someone in need or rush over to a friend's home who needs assistance with a project.

Zene has always been Hunter Bentley's favorite child. After Zene's mother's untimely death, Hunter Bentley hasn't been afraid to show even more of his favoritism towards Zene.  Zene's siblings are less than thrilled. 

Suggested attire: Attire to blend in – nothing flashy.

Up in the clouds is where you'll find the ultra-ambitious Paley Bentley. A Sky Travel Airlines new hire, Paley is one of the youngest co-pilots with the airline. A former high school track star, Paley walks at a superhuman fast pace with abrupt stops. Nonetheless, that’s an excellent skill to get around busy airports. Paley is brave and humble but so sensitive and emotional that you must watch what you say or face a flood of tears and dramatics.

Paley has not been the same since Olive Foxglove-Bentley's death two years ago. Paley vowed to learn more about her tragic accident and hasn't stopped asking questions since her funeral.  Will this fact-finding quest eventually drive a wedge between Paley and Hunter?  Possibly!

A bounty hunter who doubles as a private investigator-for-hire, Sterling Bentley is the rough and tough third-born child of Hunter Bentley. Sterling is always honest and takes things seriously. If you want to know the truth about a situation, see Sterling. Unfortunately, Sterling is quick to make decisions and can sometimes be impulsive. This quirk has led Sterling down the wrong path for a time or two. Also, hide the chewing gum, as this gum-smacker will drive you nuts.

After a falling out with Hunter almost two years ago, Sterling moved in with Grandpa B (Johnny Bentley).  It wasn't that terrible of a feat, though, as Sterling only had to move their things 1.5 blocks away. 

Suggested attire: Bounty Hunter costume or a Sherlock Holmes-inspired detective look.

 Quill is the youngest of the Bentley siblings and was doted on immensely by their late mother until her passing only two years ago. When Olive Bentley died, Quill became unemotional and detached from the rest of the family. The town gossips speculate it is because Hunter Bentley was a person of interest in his wife’s death and was never charged. Nevertheless, Quill works for Hemloxx Afterlife and manages Gorgeous Graves – a chain of exclusive burial grounds touted as luxury death experiences. All employees of Hemloxx Afterlife are referred to as ‘funeral monarchs.’ Quill has always had a bizarre arm swing while walking, and this behavior intensified after Olive's death.

Being the youngest sibling isn't always the best scenario. Quill was close to Olive Bentley before her death, and now that she's gone, Quill's become a bit of an outcast with the immediate family. Quill still lives at home but rarely comes down from the second floor unless it's to leave or come back from work. 

Suggested attire: Gothic attire with cemetery-worthy accessories, such as a coffin necklace, etc.

Umber Bentley is the oldest adopted child of Reign Bentley. Umber barely skated by in high school and graduated with only a few points to spare. Umber lives with Reign at their family's sprawling property in Rumson Waterloo Estates. To everyone's dismay, Umber has taken an unnatural interest in taxidermy and spends all of their time in the basement practicing this craft with various roadkill found on the highway. This is unsettling for everyone, as amateur taxidermied animals pop up in unexpected places within the estate as décor. Umber is continually laughing, and their terrifying giggles carry throughout the estate – especially in the wee hours of the morning. Umber has a hidden culinary genius but no interest in becoming a chef. Would you trust Umber enough to eat their food? Probably not.

Umber and their sibling, Salem, do not get along. Salem moved out of Reign's estate and moved in with Johnny Bentley (their grandfather). Umber doesn't mind, as that just gives them more room, and there is one less person to complain about their taxidermy projects. Umber works on an 'epic project' with a few creepy friends in the basement. Reign is getting suspicious that Umber keeps the basement locked. 

Suggested attire: Creepy attire - go all black or venture on the nerdy side. You can bring stuffed animals and pretend they have been taxidermized (optional props)

Umber Bentley has a terrifying group of friends that can be about as annoying and nosy as houseflies. Umber’s friends are all high school drop-outs with one goal: to hang out at Umber’s mansion and help with taxidermizing roadkill they find. They have all adopted the same creepy giggle as Umber - horrifying in the wee hours of the night if they stay up too late.

Umber's friends are not good influences and often encourage Umber to live on the dark side. That is why they have all been working on a top-secret project in the basement of Reign Bentley's estate that nobody is allowed to see or even know about. This is making the other residents and staff of the mansion very nervous. 

Suggested attire: Creepy attire - go all black or venture on the nerdy side. You can bring stuffed animals and pretend they have been taxidermized (optional props).

  Kit Bentley is the second oldest adopted child of Reign Bentley and an all-star athlete. In stark contrast to their creepy, sloth-inspired older sibling (Umber), Kit started training with athletic coaches at six months old while gearing up for the Diaper Derby circuit at department stores nationwide. Kit’s athletic career didn’t stop there, as this superstar has competed in nearly every sport at school, from tennis to basketball. Kit’s continually risen to the top and gained notice. Kit's also been a NASCAR driver, horse jockey, archer, and professional golfer. Currently, Kit’s a professional MLS soccer player. Kit’s hot-blooded and always sweating, so thermostat temperatures get set to the minimum. This leads to constant temperature wars with the staff, siblings, and Reign.

Kit Bentley rarely goes anywhere without their teammates. Is this because Kit has been under a lot of stress, and they are needing emotional support? Probably so, but Kit would never admit to that. On the surface, everything looks bright for Kit, as they recently received an offer for a lucrative sponsorship, so why is Kit so stressed out? 

Suggested attire: Wear an MLS Soccer uniform or a tracksuit. Or be fun and dress up like a soccer ball.

Kit Bentley is an all-star athlete and role model for today’s youth. Kit’s teammates are Kit's clones. They always do and say the right thing, no matter the obstacles or hurdles they face. Respectful, kind, and selfless, this group of athletes is always a pleasure to be around. Their coach loves for the team to stay together as much as possible and believes if the team becomes a family, they play soccer as a family.

Kit's teammates have been asking around town for information about what is happening between Kit and their Uncle Hunter. Kit won't come forth with any information, so the team is trying to help. Kit scores the most goals, so the team fears the stress interfering with Kit's soccer game. However, the team poked a sleeping snake, and now the townsfolk gossip about Kit! That's not good! 

Suggested attire: Wear an MLS Soccer uniform or a tracksuit. Or be fun and dress up like a soccer ball.

 Salem Bentley is the third youngest child of Reign Bentley. Upon graduation with a master's degree in business administration, Reign secured a job for Salem with the corporate legal team as a compliance specialist. Salem has a photographic memory and loves to boast about the gift to anyone in earshot, hoping to be challenged to prove the skill to anyone with doubts.

Unfortunately, Salem has become an infamous credit-stealer of others' work at the office. Salem does have a close group of colleagues but is raking up a list of foes in the short time since joining the Hemloxx team two months ago. If you have the misfortune to work with this backstabber, don't trust or turn your back on them.

Salem is the only sibling to have left Reign's nest. But, alas, their wings didn't spread too far, as they reside in their grandfather's mansion less than two blocks away. Salem claims they moved out to strengthen their relationship with Reign, but everyone knows it's because Umber Bentley creeps everyone out.

Suggested attire: Business formal – you are very uptight.

After high school graduation, Banks Bentley attended a state-approved nurse's aide training program. After passing the exam, Banks became a certified home nursing assistant specializing in end-of-life care. Banks is a freelancer hired by insurance companies and assigned to terminally-ill patients needing home health care. Surprisingly, Banks chose an occupation in the medical field, as this nursing aide might be the most entitled, selfish human being walking the earth. Banks wastes no time launching complaints about less-than-ideal situations. An utter control freak who must always have things their way, Banks makes whoever blocks their progress pay a steep price. But, with the flaws pushed aside, this medical professional didn't take long to earn a reputation as the best end-of-life caretaker in Bramford Bluff.

Banks has submitted overtime hours to Hunter Bentley's insurance for home health care in the last couple of weeks since Hunter became gravely ill. Banks complains about never getting a break and is exhausted! However, nobody can remember seeing Banks while visiting the Bentley estate. Rumor has it that Banks is vacationing in the backyard by the swimming pool and not caring for Uncle Hunter. 

Suggested attire: Medical costume of any kind - nurse, scrubs, lab coat. Any medical items as optional props (i.e., toy syringe or syringe pen to use for the investigation, stethoscope, etc.

The Bramford Bluff Bingo Hall is lively and hopping on weekend nights, and Kirby Manson is there to extinguish hypothetical fires from all directions as they ignite. Kirby manages the establishment with impeccable grit, timing, and focus but is inflexible and demanding when dealing with staff matters. Kirby prefers to be the center of attention at any gathering and must always face the door. Why? Nobody knows. Quick escape, maybe?

Kirby has fallen a bit out of touch with the Bentley side of the family, as Kirby works daily from noon to midnight. Hunter Bentley hosts a family dinner every Wednesday evening, but Kirby hasn't taken a seat at the table in almost a year. 

Suggested attire: 70’s style attire – polyester olive green dress or leisure suit.

 Valen Manson is a creative rodeo clown who doubles as a party host for hire. Valen’s clown character goes by Bubbles McGee and is a fun-loving performer who can sculpt anything out of balloons and make people laugh with contagious snort-filled giggles. However, you should set some time aside if you socialize with Valen outside of clown makeup, as it takes time for this clown to cover the fine points of topics with explanations of every detail. Beware of exhaustion if you get trapped in a lengthy chat. Kirby Manson adopted Valen at the tender age of two years old. Something was amiss in Valen’s past, and it took years for Valen to warm up to Kirby as a parent. Nobody knows who Valen’s biological parents are and why they gave Valen up for adoption.

Valen is overall happy with their life, living with Kirby Manson as their adoptive parent. But Kirby and Valen have always worked extra hard for things. They weren't born with silver spoons in their mouths like the Bentley side of the family. Valen is almost a quarter of a century old and still lives at home but claims to be saving up money to move out soon. 

Suggested attire: Clown or jester costume of any sort. Even if you just wear a colorful wig and a pop-on red nose – that’s fine.

No stranger to constant scolding on social media for incorrect weather forecasts, August Manson is the new chief meteorologist and face of Bramford Bluff's weather. August works very hard but can't seem to get the predictions right. A bit of a coward, this forecaster dons disguises to avoid the townsfolk's scrutiny. August must realize the importance of meticulously planned outdoor events that depend on the weather. On another note, August has a peculiar urge to sniff everything in sight, which is bizarre to witness.

August recently had a decent sum of cash fly their way. Now, they have the bug for luxury and are saving up to purchase a home in the affluent Rumson Waterloo Estates. Can August rub elbows with the rich and powerful of Bramford Bluff? Only time will tell. 

Suggested attire: Typical newscaster attire. You can wear sunglasses and a hat or other disguises.

Casper Hyde is a self-proclaimed paranormal investigator and hosts a show on social media called Casper's Not-so-Friendly Ghosts. People can hire Casper to exterminate ghosts from their homes or artifacts, and Casper films the act as an episode of the show. Casper is approaching a million followers and has recently monetized their social media accounts. Casper was always different and had imaginary friends since childhood. Casper hangs out with these invisible pals about town, which can be a bit peculiar to witness. Casper overuses hand gestures while speaking and appears to use sign language, but it's a made-up version between Casper and their imaginary friends. Casper has boundless energy and is extremely friendly to everyone. Casper would do anything to help someone in need and is best friends with their sibling, Carrigan Hyde.

Casper drives a white van with a five-foot plastic ghost perched on top with spooky, glowing red eyes. There is an external sound system that plays the song Ghostbusters repeatedly. Unfortunately, Casper cannot turn off the music, so they try not to drive the van during hours when people could be sleeping. Nevertheless, it's a sight to see, and everyone in town waves as Casper goes by, as it is certainly a spectacle. 

Suggested attire: Gothic, ghostly attire, or a Ghostbuster-inspired costume. Bring any kind of electronic device and call it a ghost detector.

  Carrigan Hyde is the sibling and best friend of Casper Hyde, the paranormal investigator. Carrigan created the business I'll Wait for You -  a professional line-standing service. You can hire Carrigan to wait in line for events, department store sales, popular restaurants, or other venues with long wait times. This service saves the client time, as everyone has a busy life. Carrigan holds a place, contacting the client as they approach the final stretch to the front of the line. The client shows up, takes over the coveted spot, and Carrigan earns big money. Carrigan is courageous, never passing on a dare or caring what other people think. This line stander is understandably obsessed with checking the time. They refuse to use curse words, as they've created a unique vocabulary to show dissatisfaction, anger, and disdain.

Carrigan is Casper's younger sibling, but Carrigan is very protective over Casper - especially since many of the townsfolk don't believe in ghosts and think Casper is a phony. Carrigan doesn't believe in ghosts but supports their sibling no matter what.
Carrigan is a health and fitness fanatic and opts to ride a bicycle instead of owning a car. Not only is it cheaper, but also it gives Carrigan the exercise needed to feed their donut addiction. 

Suggested attire: Casual attire.  Something comfortable to stand in lines for a long time.
