!The Guests

!!Nan
[[quoteleft:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Nan_8434.png]]
Our protagonist, Nan is an electronics technician and repairman. She liked to play arcade games as a kid. She is lazy and lets quite a few work orders stack up before she gets to them. She has the ability to hum showtunes.
----
'''Tropes''':

* AccidentalPervert: Nan gets a peek of Henry's bare bum from the crack of his door when he went to go change. {{Subverted}} by the fact she [[CovertPervert wanted to do it]].
** And again when she ''barges in on him changing''!
* BuxomIsBetter: (In contrast to [[Roleplay/RubyQuest Ruby]]) Early in the game, one player asked whether Nan was wearing a bra or not, to which Weaver replied:
-->"''Of course Nan's wearing a bra. She needs support when she's on the job.''"
* [[RidiculouslyAverageGuy Ridiculously Average Goat]]: "Nan never really considered herself in terms of traits like that before. But if she had to choose one she'd probably be known for her ABILITY TO HUM SHOWTUNES. Actually come to think of it Nan isn't really sure what makes her special. Maybe nothing."
* StandardizedLeader:
* WeaponOfChoice: Improvised rebar spear, and later a lead pipe.


!!Henry
[[quoteleft:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Henry_8558.png]]

----

Pablo is a more experienced resident of the hotel, he is first seen in possession of a fire axe. He came to the hotel when he was called in to be it's janitor, about ten days before Nan got there. He has been surviving in the hotel since. He is probably a bat.
----
'''Tropes''':

* [[spoiler:TheAtoner]]: Some sort of variation in Nan's [[spoiler:''{{MIND SCREW}}'' NightmareSequence]].
