You’ve been invited to the luxurious affair, and this is where your story begins.
Chemist & Heir of Doom Mansion
Dr. Doom is an infamous chemist and the heir of Doom Mansion. This doc has burned many bridges and made many enemies in the past, but recently came to a point in life with the desire to make everything right with associates and former loved ones. Dr. Doom, being an heir, retired from an illustrious career with DDT Chemicals, Inc. Many years of societal pressure from environmentalist groups finally made Dr. Doom aware that the harmful pesticides s/he was working on would have serious consequences on the food web.
Dr. Doom recently hired Ms. Ivory, a woman with a mysterious past, as the housekeeper of the mansion. However, it wasn't until recently when Dr. Doom found out the truth about her! Nevertheless, Dr. Doom is trying to turn over a new leaf and build bridges, not tear them down.
Dr. Doom has two remaining family members - Miss Crimson and Ms. Pheasant, who are both nieces. Miss Crimson is the only one in good graces, as Ms. Pheasant has chosen the path of estrangement.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Trendy suit. Glasses as an optional accessory.
Miss Crimson is the beautiful niece of Dr. Doom and famous film actress. She is the younger sister of Ms. Pheasant. However, Miss Crimson and her controversial sister have been at odds for years. It wasn't until recently when Ms. Pheasant and Dr. Doom had a falling out over a board game.
Miss Crimson's last movie release was a huge flop. Rumor has it that the upcoming release won't be much better. What does this say about her career? In Hollywood, one day you're hot, and the next, you're not.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Glamorous red evening gown. Hair should be in an elegant hairstyle.
Military General and Avid Hunter
General Dijon is the one to keep order in any room. An avid military officer and hunter, rumor has it The General sleeps with a grenade in one hand and a revolver under the pillow.
Even though The General (as s/he prefers to be called) has never left US soil, s/he is highly-concerned with being attacked - even at home.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Any type of military clothing and a yellow (mustard-colored) scarf/ tie. A fake revolver or shotgun as an optional prop.
Hair Tonic Salesperson
This slimy con artist is one to stay away from, as Jade will make a shady business deal with anyone who is foolish enough to sign on the dotted line. Jade owns the company, Grow your Hair like a Chia Pet. Jade's proprietary blend is marketed as a miracle cure for baldness.
However, the company is only six-months-old with guarantees to grow back hair with daily use after a year. Either the company will boom or crash once documented results are released by customers.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Any type of tacky green suit or dress with fake hair tonic bottles as optional props.
Ms. Ivory is the sarcastic housekeeper of the Doom Mansion. Ms. Ivory keeps the mansion clean and in perfect order, but she doesn’t get along with anyone.
Ms. Ivory has recently been slacking on the job and the cobwebs are coming back across the property. She might not care to impress Dr. Doom anymore. There's nothing worse than a housekeeper who's a couch potato! On the flip side, Dr. Doom is a neat freak, so there's probably not much to do around the mansion, nevertheless.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Any type of black and white maid/housekeeper costume. A feather duster as an optional prop.
High Society Socialite
Ms. Pheasant is a wealthy socialite. She is the niece of Dr. Doom and older sister of Miss Crimson. This socialite has many secrets and rumors of a troubled past.
Ms. Pheasant was the former president of the Proper Ladies of Gothic City club - an exclusive socialite club in town with a member price tag of 50K. For some reason, Ms. Pheasant is no longer a member. The town gossips are dying to know what happened!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: A blue prim and proper dress suitable for ‘high society.’ A bag of fake money as an optional prop.
This legal diva, who only sees the black and white of things, is the no-nonsense attorney of Dr. Doom. This debate queen lacks a personality.
Miss Gray was recently accused by Dr. Doom of embezzlement. As she controls all of Dr. Doom's accounts, she could have easily been the one who swiped millions. Sources say Dr. Doom's niece, Miss Crimson, has made the bank manager aware of the missing money. Miss Gray better hope she covered her tracks if she is guilty.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: A gray business suit with a briefcase as an optional prop.
Princess of Zamkiki
Princess Fuchsia is Dr. Doom’s friend from a small island off of the coast of South Africa called Zamkiki. She is an avid collector and enthusiastic world traveler.

Chef Ginger has a personality as spicy as the chef’s delectable dishes! This is one chef that will be the first to tell it like it is! Chef Ginger is sharp, as nothing gets by this knife-wielding culinary genius!

Dr. Grape is an absent-minded physics professor and former colleague of Dr. Doom. Dr. Grape is the estranged sibling of the housekeeper of the Doom Mansion, Ms. Ivory.
