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
- Amateur Sleuth: In the first game, in which she takes it upon herself to investigate the party guests (even before the murders start).
- Intrepid Reporter: In the second game, in which she takes advantage of her press pass to investigate the strange events happening at the museum.
- Plucky Girl: Certainly the growing pile of bodies in both games doesn't seem to faze her much.
- Cute and Psycho: She has a cute little bob and is described as attractive by Laura, but she also murders seven people over the course of one night.
- Lonely Doll Girl: On at least two occasions Laura finds Lillian in a playhouse, playing with (and talking to) a collection of dolls.
- The Ophelia: As Laura soon discovers, Lillian had a mental breakdown after the suicide of her father.
- Walking Spoiler: She's the killer in the first game, only to be killed herself after Rudy shots her in self-defence.
- If I Can't Have You...: After realising that her beloved Uncle Henri plans to share his wealth with all his family members, Lillian starts murdering everyone she believes came between her and her surrogate father-figure.
Colonel Henri Dijon
- Lady Drunk: By Act II she's tipsy at the bar; by Acts III and IV she's staggering around the grounds in a stupor.
- Broken Pedestal: Lillian considered him her second father, only for him to rather cruelly tell her otherwise.
- Dirty Old Man: He's carrying on an affair with Fifi, who is in his employ and at least half his age.
- Disabled Snarker: He's definitely very snarky, but as it turns out — not quite as disabled as he's led everyone to believe.
- 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.
Gertrude DijonGloria SwansongRudy Dijon
- Amoral Attorney: As Laura discovers, he's been embezzling the Colonel's money to stake on race-horses.
- Kavorka Man: Despite his age, he maintains an affair with Gloria.
Dr. Wilbur B. FeelsFifi
- Upper-Class Twit: He does nothing other than flirt with women and rack up gambling debts. (Though Laura does admit he's handsome.)
- French Maid: Is French, is a maid, and wears a classic French Maid's outfit. There couldn't be a more quintessential example of this trope.
- 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.
