Ok, so far I got two characters with 3 more on their way. I know that of the five we have: An author, a professor of botany (it was botany right? I don't have it in front of me at this second) and an archeologist. So far all the characters are female with the exception of one. I'm thinking all the pcs, with the exception of the male, are members of a women's club. Essentially the club is for women who are above the norm in their time.
I will decide how to get the male pc in as soon as I know what Beatrice is playing :)
