Gerti Harper (Charles)
Gerti's the secretary for Valiant's Detective Agency, in charge of
answering the phones, research in the libraries, and quite a bit of snooping
herself. Gerti's been seeing Charlie Walker for a number of years, but
no wedding seems imminent...
Charlie Walker (Nick)
Charlie's a dockworker on the Boston waterfront, who's helped the
agency out when they've needed some extra muscle (or some company
scouting around the seedier sections).
Peter Collins (Mike)
Peter is a freelance reporter, currently working principally for
the Boston Globe. Peter carries the "investigative" in
"investigative reporting" to great lengths in pursuit of a story -
though he and his editors can differ on what is or is not publishable.
Dr. Juergen Schreber (Tom)
Dr. Schreber has consulted for the Valiants on esoteric
medical evidence in some of their cases, though their acquaintance
goes back farther, to when he was captured by Tommy Valiant as a
prisoner of war in Egypt.
Roderick Bellesby (Andy)
At first appearances, Roderick appears to be a prosperous
businessman. After a few minutes' conversation, however, he comes
across as a bit of a nutcase with fixations on nutrition, the occult,
and high fiber diets.
Esme Carrington-Danforth (Susie)
A dilettante and society girl, Esme is the niece of Miss Elena
Saravelda and hires the Valiants to start the first run.
However, rather than sit back and watch the investigators investigate,
she seems interested in helping out...
