Eric Sheridan, male, 30s
A police officer. A bookish, even-keeled guy who finds himself completely out of his element when called upon to express his feelings for a woman, lie to his boss, disguise himself as someone else, and stand up to an armed mobster – while not wearing any pants.
Billie Dwyer, female, 20s/30s
A police officer, Eric’s partner. Excitable and entirely unthreatening, she seemingly lacks every skill necessary for police work, but is eager to succeed as she seems destined to fail.
Mayor Meekly, male, 50s to 70s
An Innocent, with a capital I. An affable, gentle fellow. Not to quick on the pick-up, but a sweet, sweet soul.
Agent Frank, male, 20s to 50s
The head of security at Town Hall, and frankly, the wrong man for the job. Though he presents the confident, gruff exterior of a secret service agent (or film noir detective, even) he is frequently (and, at moments of crisis, invariably) a man frightened by his own shadow.
Mary Meekly, female, 50s to 70s
The Mayor’s wife. Small in stature and unfailingly sweet, she seems, in every way, the perfect match for her husband.
