Murder at the Four Deuces
Don Wannabe and his wife Madame MeMe are hosting a grand opening celebration for his new lavish speakeasy The Four Deuces. The cream and not so cream of society will be here. With gangsters, hit men, politicians, opera singers, molls, reporters, and many other interesting guests in attendance there are sure to be a lot of big deals being made here tonight.
Matt S. - Don Wannabe - 36 - Big Jim Raviolis Chief Lieutenant. When he met his wife Madam MeMe, it was love at first sight. The 2 of them own a chain of houses of ill repute. He was hired by Big Jim to run his many businesses, as Big Jim wanted only to pursue wine, women and song.
Jeanne S. - Madam MeMe - 37 - Married to Don Wannabe for over 15 years. With their combined head for business the two have managed to amass a fortune. Tonight they open their newest venture the Four Deuces.
Mike S. - Capo 'Toto' Tequila - 48 - The self proclaimed Boss of Bosses will be visiting us from New York. Speculation is running rampant on why he is coming here tonight. When it involves the Capo it just has to be something big.
Osam M. - Don 'Big Jim' Ravioli - 40 - Well-known father of the Chicago mob or "The Family". Often referred to as Diamond Jim because of his penchant for flashy diamond jewelry. He just recently divorced his wife of 20 years to marry the much younger Carrie Crooner an aspiring Opera Singer. They have only been married for a week.
Katie C. - Carrie Crooner-Ravioli - 19 - Carrie had been a singer in one of Big Jim's clubs when Big Jim fell in love with her. He divorced his wife to marry her. She is attending tonight to do a special performance. People speculate that she only married Big Jim so that she could use his connections to become famous.
Lori Beth W. - Vicky Ravioli - 48 - Ex-wife to Don Ravioli. While she is older then him, she was still surprised when he asked for a divorce to marry that floozy Carrie Crooner. The divorce came through on March 20th and Vicky was overheard saying, "I raised my husband from a boy to a man for another woman." She received a $50,000 settlement from the divorce. It is rumored that her grief didn't last very long and that she has a new lover.
Jessica W. - Rebecca Ravioli - 20 - Daughter to Big Jim and Vicky. She has been telling everyone that she is engaged to marry Rhett Bumbler. Her father absolutely refuses to allow the marriage.
Andy B. - Rhett Bumbler - 32 - A gambler who came into town about 6 months ago. No one knows much about him, except that he is not very good at cards or dice. His attempts to cheat are so laughable that most people tend to overlook it. People don't believe he is engaged to Rebecca. Big Jim would never tolerate this buffoon as a son-in-law.
Laura G. - Baroness Ravioli - 56 - Mother to Don Big Jim Ravioli. Of course she isn't a real Baroness, but being the Don's mother does tend to keep people from saying any different. The Baroness loves to wear tiaras and lord it over anyone she considers 'beneath' her. She has been acting very smug lately, even more than usual.
Megan S. - Donna Wannabe - 24 - Don Wannabes little sister. Donna has become quite popular with the movie picture actors. She has been somewhat secretly seeing Big Jim on and off for the last few years. Lately she has been seen making a play for Rhett Bumblers attention. Some speculate that she has always been jealous of the attention Big Jim lathered on his daughter and this is her way of getting back at her.
Joel S. - Tony Capone - 22 - Brought from New York by Don Wannabe to become his bouncer for the new club. While he is called a bouncer, everyone knows that he was really just a hit man for The Family.
Brian B. - U.S. Congressman Darrin Toosteal - 55 - Some say Darrins rise to fame could be directly attributed to his close friendship with Big Jim. It is also rumored that he could very possibly become the next President of the United States. Some privately wonder how he could hope to become the next president when it was well known that he has such a close affiliation with a man of Big Jims reputation.
Dave T. - Inspector Neville 'The Nose' Nutella - The Inspector will be attending the function to investigate the murder of the Black Hand Gang 2 nights ago.
Dan F. - Sly Sleaze - 32 - Sly runs the horse-betting ring for Big Jim. He made an agreement with the new Telegraph Company to be the only person able to receive the live horse race results immediately in the Chicago area. He then sells these results to local bookies for 1/2 of their take. In exchange for all his work the Don gave him 5% of the earnings. Some say he isn't happy with this percentage and feels that he deserves a full partnership in the venture. He and Rebecca Ravioli have been good friends for years.
Jill K. - Vanessa Crooner - 42 - Mother to Carrie, Big Jim’s new wife. She chaperoned Carrie & Big Jim everywhere they went before the marriage. She does not approve of Big Jim. Carrie was innocent and could not see how evil this man is, but mommy knows. After they were married she moved into the new house with them. She is going to make sure that Big Jim treats her baby right.
Rebecca G. - Mary Toosteal - 37 - Wife to U.S. Congressman Darrin Toosteal. Mary is the perfect political wife. Elegant, dignified and turns a blind eye to her husbands escapades. She comes from old money and powerful connections.
Gavin F. - Mayor 'Big Bill' Bumpkin - 42 - Big Bill is the Mayor of Chicago. He is known to be friendly and honest which is why people don't believe the rumor that city funds have been vanishing. He and Big Jim have been good friends for many years.
Alice F. – Ginger Roberts - 25 – Writes a society and gossip column for the Tribune. Ginger has made Chicago’s finest look even finer for years. She was invited here by the Baroness.

Bridget B. - Guilda Guiseppi - 24 - Wife to Jack Guiseppi.
