An amnesiac young boy who finds himself thrust into the bizarre situation of needing to gain entry into the town's lodge before the big blood drive. Unfortunately, the means of gaining membership are not at all reasonable. Or morally sound for that matter.
Amnesiac Hero: Game begins with the protagonist waking up with amnesia.
Fish Out of Temporal Water: Shares this with Steve. Her choice in sentence structure and slang indicates she's from the 90's — which is when this game was released — yet everyone else in Harvest sounds like they came from the early 50's, which is when the game "takes place."
Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She gets really upset at Steve for pulling pranks on the people in Harvester, despite not being on their side.
Creepy Child: The more you talk to him, the more apparent it is that something is clearly not right with him.
Morality Pet: Played with. He's one of the only characters that the player can't kill, but he's also among the most disturbing citizens of Harvest.
Sanity Slippage: When the TV station is burnt down, Hank continues to sit and stare at a blank TV.
The Sociopath: When he hears about Karen's disappearance, he goes over to Edna's house to torment and take advantage of her.
The Stool Pigeon: He threatens to tell on Steve to his mom about any and every perceived slight.
Colonel Buster Monroe
A slightly unhinged WWII veteran who lost his legs and lower body. He's in charge of a military operation in Harvest.
Big Red Button: He's got one (that launches nuclear missiles) strapped to where his lower body used to be, in a perfect position to be accidentally leaned on if he shoots and kills you (and even without that, he's the absolutely last person you'd want with something like that.)
The most notable teacher at Gein Memorial. She doesn't buy into that 'corporal punishment' nonsense... "Spare the rod, spoil the child." A rod's too thin. But a baseball bat...
Acting for Two: As for many other residents of Harvest, the same actress is re-used in a very different counterpart role inside the Lodge. Whether they're intended to be the same characters, alternate versions, or simply unrelated is never clear. The actress who plays Miss Whaley also plays the Brothel Madam inside the Temple of the Mystery of Lust.
Batter Up: Her method of administering discipline.
Only Sane Man: Easily the nicest and most reasonable resident of Harvest that's not a main character.
Harvest's resident paperboy. Since the Sentinel burnt down, he's decided to keep the business going by collecting people's papers instead, and making damn sure to let them know that they better have a newspaper for him every morning or something...unfortunate might happen.
Family-Unfriendly Violence: The show is full of graphic violence and (like many old westerns) racism against Native Americans, but what is seen and heard of it, it looks just like any cheesy kid's show, with bright colors and goofy music and sound effects.
Acting for Two: The same actress plays the Lodge Librarian, although very little effort is given to changing her appearance.
The Stool Pigeon: She rats on Loomis to his wife whenever Loomis tries to buy girlie mags from the store.
The owner of the barbershop.
The Barber: Subverts the "talkative gossip" part by never speaking a word of English.
Dropped a Bridge on Him: Pastorelli is electrocuted to death off-screen after his barber pole is stolen when the loose wires landed in a puddle of water that just happened to be where he was standing when he turns the power back on.
Pet the Dog: He didn't have to give Steve and Stephanie the option to have a relatively normal life and marriage in the simulation, but the fact that he did makes him better than the Harvesters who programmed him.
Human Sacrifice: They require one in order to create a serialkiller, where the subject kills a real person, thus requiring them to kidnap both Steve and Stephanie; Stephanie is only there to be the final sacrifice into turning Steve evil.
