Bridget Jones played by Jim.
Bridget is a single woman in her early thirties, desperate to turn her dead-end life around.
Jim is a rather gung-ho roleplayer, interested in action, cool fight scenes, and lucrative spoils over careful consideration or puzzle solving. He frequently acts before he thinks, which includes fixating on his own strange explanations for setting details that the GM hasn't explained yet.
Tom played by Ben.
Tom is a retired one-hit wonder pop star from the '80s and a friend of Bridget's.
Ben is a thoughtful roleplayer who tries to think through the best course of action within his character concept and the setting. He enjoys coming up with clever ways to justify the success of his plans within the premises of the setting.
Daniel Cleaver played by Pete.
Daniel Cleaver is the editor-in-chief of a London book publishing company.
Pete is an old friend of Jim's. Jim invited him along to join in this new game. Pete designed a character to maximise all the skills he thought would come in most useful in a modern day urban campaign, at the cost of having Annoyingly Two-Timing, Annoyingly Hits on Other People's Girlfriends, and Annoyingly Smug.
Shazza played by Sally.
Shazza is a journalist and friend of Bridget's. Likes to say "frack" a lot.
Sally is somewhat younger than the other players, but has grown to be an integral part of their gaming group. She has an active imagination and enjoys inventing details about the game setting and characters. Her gaming style is maturing as she grows older.
Mark Darcy played by Annie.
Mark Darcy is a barrister specialising in international human rights.
Annie was interested to come along and see what this "roleplaying games" thing was all about, hearing it was a sort of improvisational acting thing. She is dedicated to playing her character as a real, complex person with motivations inspired by a well-considered backstory.
Jude played by Corey.
Jude is head of investment at Brightlings Bank and Bridget's best friend.
Corey is Pete's nephew and was keen to play the "cool roleplaying game" that Pete told him about. He is relatively new to the world of tabletop RPG gaming but has adapted quickly to playing a character and thinking as they would.
Mrs Jones is Bridget's mother. Her main concerns are marrying off her daughter and recovering the recipe for the Lost Turkey Curry of Phanastacoria.
Mr Fitzherbert is the managing director of the publishing company, Daniel Cleaver's boss. He uses his great wisdom and popularity to run the company while staring at the chests of his female staff. How exactly he gets away with this is a mystery.
Mr Jones is Bridget's father. He keeps an eye on the family and tries to keep everyone out of trouble, which seems to be a very difficult thing to do with his daughter making a fool of herself all the time.
Natasha is a top attorney specialising in family law. Mark Darcy trusts her, but Bridget is suspicious of her because she keeps looking at her in strange ways. Who is right remains to be seen.
