Characters / Laura Bow

Characters from the Laura Bow Adventure Game series. Beware of spoilers. Needs More Love.

Cast of The Colonel's Bequest:

Laura Bow

Lillian Prune

Ethel Prune

Colonel Henri Dijon

  • Pet the Dog: In the best of the two alternate endings, he'll let you keep the buried treasure as a thank-you for saving his life.
    • In a sequence that literally shows him patting his real dog.

Clarence Sparrow

  • Kavorka Man: Despite his age, he maintains an affair with Gloria.

Gertrude Dijon

Gloria Swansong

Rudy Dijon

  • Upper-Class Twit: He does nothing other than flirt with women and rack up gambling debts. (Though Laura does admit he's handsome.)

Dr. Wilbur B. Feels


  • Gold Digger: Heavily implied to be this. The rest of the cast remarks (accurately) that for being a maid, Fifi doesn't do a lot of cleaning.


  • The Quiet One: Rarely speaks, and if Laura tries to speak with him in private, he just asks her to leave him alone. Though he is having an affair with Fifi.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He cleans up (destroys) the evidence at the scene of at least two murders without a thought.


  • Black Guy Dies First: Totally averted: she's the only character to survive the ordeal in both alternative endings.
  • Hollywood Voodoo: Celie is a practitioner (though she insists for good intentions). She also is found praying in a christian church.
