VERA CLAYTHORNE (Female, 25-30, open ethnicity) A good-looking, resourceful and charming young woman who plays at aloof but has more of an interior life than she lets on. She cleverly deflects conversation and attention while also welcoming it. She leverages this to outsmart and outlast the rest of the accused people on the island. Despite her intelligence and wit, she has less control of her emotions. Her motivation for murder and ultimately her downfall are the result of her tendency towards fixation and emotional instability. Allows love to lead her to madness, murder and ultimately suicide.
TOM ROGERS (Male, 55-65, open ethnicity) The refined and dignified manservant of the house on Soldier Island. Even as the tragic events of the play unfold, he remains in service of others, always keeping about his work. Described as “quick and deft” and is accused of being the mastermind behind the crime he and his wife committed. He bullies and seeks to control his wife, often telling her how she should and shouldn’t behave. While less loquacious than his wife, he is no less judgmental about those in a higher station than he and allows this to motivate murder, in service of receiving a legacy from the woman he and his wife killed.
MRS. ETHEL ROGERS (Female, 55-65, open ethnicity) Roger’s wife who is described by her husband as a woman who “talks a lot but gets it done”. Seems worried and frightened at all times. A highly emotional woman who is controlled by her bullying husband and is judgmental of those who are more well off than she. Worries about being looked down upon by richer people - which may be the result of insecurity and shame about her station in life. This coupled with her husband’s influence drives her to help kill her former employer. The guilt of this action follows her and makes her frail and nervous.
PHILIP LOMBARD (Male, 30-35, open ethnicity) An attractive adventurer who craves excitement and is bored by the simple life. Where other characters seek to solve the mystery with logic and reason, he is more motivated by strength and force. Flamboyant and flirty, Lombard allows his old-fashioned views about “Natives” to drive him to kill and his outdated views of women to underestimate Vera - seeing her as a damsel rather than a threat. His wicked and dark sense of humor pairs with his blatant and unapologetic honesty, making him one of the keenest of the guests on the island. While others hide behind subterfuge, he admits his crimes and cares only about self-preservation and the truth.
WILLIAM BLORE (Male, 45-50, open ethnicity) A former corrupt police officer who framed an innocent man, Blore is experienced in deceit and deflection and yet has some difficulty covering his seams. He is described by Rogers as having neither money nor class and others see through the facade he has adopted. Despite this, he is able to use his loud and bold personality as a way to establish authority. The others often look to him for advice, but he is rarely right in his assumptions and frequently makes blunders.
GENERAL MACKENZIE (Male, 60-70, open ethnicity) The oldest of the island’s guests, General Mackenzie appears as an upright, soldierly old man, who is harmless. He is a creature of habit, even in unfamiliar places, and the rest of the guests placate and care for him as the tragedy unfolds. As it is revealed that he is a jealous and murderous man, he begins to lose his grip on reality, slipping into madness and hallucinating images of his dead wife. Eventually, he resigns himself, and all the others, to death - citing his old age as to why he will go without a fight.
SIR LAWRENCE WARGRAVE (Male, 50-60, open ethnicity) An old, stalwart judge who is described as being “responsible for sending more innocent people to their death than anyone in England”. Wargrave is obsessed with the law and sees it has a limited force, which he has a duty to operate outside of. His cunning, experience and authoritative nature allow him to take a leadership role on the island. It becomes evident in the end, however, that he is actually a madman, driven by sadistic desires to be judge, jury, and executioner of those who have escaped prosecution for their crimes.
