The Trapeze Artist – Lillian Lewis. Distant relative of owner, Harry Hunt. Has been with the circus just over 6 years, though all can see that her routine and acrobatic skills are unimpressive. Girlfriend of Charles Chipwood.
The Lion Tamer – George Grant. Best friend of Harry Hunt. A performance in Chicago was canceled two months ago at the last minute because George had a sudden illness right before the show was about to begin. George’s son broke his leg just days ago while riding a motorcycle. An unidentified hit-and-run driver crashed into him at a stoplight.
The Tightrope Walker – Emma Ericson. Joined Rola Bola Circus 6 years ago when Harry paid her a large amount of money to pry her away from a competitor. Considered one of the best tightrope walkers in the business.
The Human Cannonball – Charles Chipwood. Arrived at Rola Bola Circus 3 years back when the company was on the verge of collapse. His amazing act and stage presence brought the circus back from the brink, and crowds began pouring in to see him perform. Boyfriend of Lillian Lewis.
The Mime – Anna Atkins. Hired by Harry 5 years ago. Mostly keeps to herself but is friendly with her fellow performers. Has a decent, though unspectacular act that serves the purpose of keeping the audience entertained in between bigger acts.
The Ringmaster – Harry Hunt. Both owner and ringmaster of the circus. Generally well liked by the other performers. Best friend of George Grant. Managed to weather the storm years ago when the circus faced dire financial problems.

Act 2 Character Sheets – These will be distributed to guests after Act 1 has concluded. They are also player specific. You may have 1 fewer character sheet for Act 2 than you had for Act 1. This is by design. (Act 2 Materials)
