(Male 50s) Married to Penny. His quiet charm and mild manner are terrifically engaging. He is a tinkerer who manufactures fireworks in his basement.

(Male, late 20s to early 30s) The vice-president of Kirby & Co. although doesn’t innately have the mind for business that his father seems to have. He’s a caring and personable young man who is hopelessly in love with Alice.
