Characters from the ''Laura Bow'' AdventureGame series. Beware of spoilers. NeedsMoreLove.

!!'''Cast of ''The Colonel's Bequest''''':


'''Laura Bow'''

* AmateurSleuth: In the first game, in which she takes it upon herself to investigate the party guests (even ''before'' the murders start).
* IntrepidReporter: In the second game, in which she takes advantage of her press pass to investigate the strange events happening at the museum.
* PluckyGirl: Certainly the growing pile of bodies in both games doesn't seem to faze her much.
%%* SouthernBelle


'''Lillian Prune'''

* CuteAndPsycho: [[spoiler: 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]].
%%* TheFlapper: Is described as this
* LonelyDollGirl: On at least two occasions Laura finds Lillian in a playhouse, playing with (and talking to) a collection of dolls.
* TheOphelia: [[spoiler: As Laura soon discovers, Lillian had a mental breakdown after the suicide of her father]].
* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler: She's the killer in the first game, only to be killed herself after Rudy shots her in self-defence]].
* IfICantHaveYou: [[spoiler: 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]].

'''Ethel Prune'''

* LadyDrunk: By Act II she's tipsy at the bar; by Acts III and IV she's staggering around the grounds in a stupor.

'''Colonel Henri Dijon'''

* BrokenPedestal: Lillian considered him her second father, only for him to rather cruelly tell her otherwise.
* DirtyOldMan: He's carrying on an affair with Fifi, who is in his employ and at least half his age.
* DisabledSnarker: He's definitely very snarky, but as it turns out -- not quite as disabled as he's led everyone to believe.
%%* HatesEveryoneEqually
* PetTheDog: 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'''

* AmoralAttorney: As Laura discovers, he's been embezzling the Colonel's money to stake on race-horses.
* KavorkaMan: Despite his age, he maintains an affair with Gloria.

'''Gertrude Dijon'''

%%* GrandeDame
* OutdatedOutfit: Laura notes that Gertrude's outfit is straight from TheGayNineties.

'''Gloria Swansong'''

* FluffyFashionFeathers: Gloria wears a pink feather boa. [[spoiler:And ends up dying by being strangled with it.]]
%%* WhiteDwarfStarlet

'''Rudy Dijon'''

* UpperClassTwit: He does nothing other than flirt with women and rack up gambling debts. (Though Laura does admit he's handsome.)

'''Dr. Wilbur B. Feels'''

* DirtyOldMan: Referred to as one verbatim by Laura.
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: It's rumored he 'samples' his own medicine.
%%* PunnyName

'''Fifi'''

* FrenchMaid: Is French, is a maid, and wears a classic French Maid's outfit. There couldn't be a more quintessential example of this trope.
* GoldDigger: 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.

'''Jeeves'''

%%* TheJeeves
* TheQuietOne: Rarely speaks, and if Laura tries to speak with him in private, he just asks her to leave him alone. [[spoiler:Though he is having an affair with Fifi.]]
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: He cleans up (destroys) the evidence at the scene of at least two murders without a thought.

'''Celie'''

* BlackGuyDiesFirst: Totally {{averted}}: she's the only character to survive the ordeal in ''both'' alternative endings.
