ROLE: Mysterious man (Rudolph Fentz)
Male, age 30-40s, English speaker
A simple man living with his wife and a child in 1876 America. Deals with everything in a simple way, fast and straight to the point. Can't even think of anything unnatural until his sudden disappearance one day. Appearing almost over a hundred years later, he is confused and scared.

ROLE: NYPD Captain Hubert V. Rihm
Male, age 40-60s, English speaker
A conservative NYPD captain (chief). Lost faith in any miracle after the death of his father. Logical and analytical. Calm and thoughtful. Although does not believe in anything supernatural, in the end he is the one who needs it the most.
