For five millennia Harry Blackpool has been the agent for all Evil on Earth, while Rachel Parrish has represented Good. These implacable foes meet in a private club every twenty five years. With the end of the world scheduled for tomorrow at teatime, they must pass their duties to their oblivious heirs: a mild mannered physical education teacher and an aggressively Bohemian artist.

Harry Blackpool – The agent of all Evil on Earth. Of an uncertain age, somewhere between forty-five and a thousand. Exudes the attitude of an untrustworthy banker or politician; sardonic, playful, cynical and sincere.

Rachel Parrish – The agent of all Good on Earth. Of the same indeterminate age as Harry, but that’s where similarities end. Reminds one of a private girls’ schoolteacher or a head nurse; calm and self-assured but with a controlled sense of playfulness.

Timothy Page – The manager of a private club, which means he is a combination housekeeper, butler, occupant and business manager. Still in his early thirties, but he is a competent employee and determined to impress.

Adam Blackpool – Harry’s son. Twenty-five years old, trim and athletic. He is a junior high school gym teacher, but he doesn’t seem to be the embodiment of all Evil, as his father suggests.

Tiffany Parrish – Rachel’s daughter. Also twenty-five years old, she is an artist of the bohemian persuasion. Speaks with a Cockney accent. Not necessarily the embodiment of all Good, as her mother suggests.
