"Papa", the incarnation of the business trusts ostensibly directing and funding the 1900 Republican presidential campaign.

"Nursie", the incarnation of Senator Mark Hanna, the Republican Party power-broker and "trust" ally.

William McKinley, presidential candidate and incumbent known in the series as "Willie".

Theodore Roosevelt, the vice-presidential candidate known in the series as "Teddy".
