Templeton compiled this lovely chart of the characters who appear in Laura Bow 2 along with a picture and brief description. The descriptions will not reveal who was guilty of the crimes committed in the game. You will have to figure that out while sleuthing!
The chief editor of the New York Daily Register News Tribune (NYDRNT). Perfectionist, tough man.
Laura Bow’s father. Retired New Orleans police officer who taught Laura a lot about detective work.
The heroine of the game. Reporter and detective. Red-haired, lovely young woman. Wise, brave and resourceful.
Dr. Archibald Carrington III
The current president of the museum. Chubby, middle-aged spectacled man. No one knows him well, as he just recently came from England. Snobbish but dignified man.
Dr. Pippin Carter
The archaeologist who found the Dagger of Amon Ra. Dark-haired, tall English man. Braggart, arrogant, very unpleasant man.
Assistant of Dr. Carrington. Blond, beautiful, sensual, and passionate French woman. She is “fond” of many people — not just men.
Stevedore. Works at the docks. Red-haired, muscular man. Nice, shy young man. In his spare time, he is amateur artist, who paints and sculptures with plaster.
The laundry owner. Nice, wise old Chinese man.
The security guard of the museum. Dark-haired, muscular man. Tough, dangerous. Impatient hot-headed German, who is fond of interrogation and torture methods of the Third Reich. You’d better not get in his way.
The janitor of the museum. Dark-haired. Preserved person.
A dangerous criminal who recently escaped from Dartmoor prison. He was accused and convicted for fraud, conspiracy and larceny, but he won’t hesitate to murder. He is an artist in impersonating people — he might be one of the guests in the museum, under different name.
Henri Le Mort
The coroner. Professional, veteran police official.
Dr. Olympia Myklos
Anthropologist and Paleontologist. Sturdy and severe-looking, but not unattractive middle-aged Greek woman. Nice, learnt woman who is fond of reptiles and strong men with scars.
The accountant of the museum. Dark-haired, spectacled. Nice Egyptian man, maybe a little ‘square’.
Detective Ryan Hanrahan O’Riley
The police officer assigned to investigate the theft of the Dagger. Red-haired, muscular, hot-headed, unpleasant Irish man. You’d better not upset him.
Crodfoller T. “Rhub” Rhubarb
A reporter for the New York Daily Register News Tribune. Nice, chatty man.
Dr. Ptahsheptut “Tut” Smith
The representative of Cairo Museum. Fanatic Egyptian who will do ANYTHING in order to get the Dagger of Amon Ra back to Egypt. Chubby middle-aged man, always wears an ankh medallion.
Countess Lavinia Waldorf-Carlton
A widow. Her husband, Sterling Waldorf-Carlton, the former president of the museum, died recently. Snobbish old lady who always tries to make impression on everyone.
Lawrence “Ziggy” Ziegfeld
The owner of the speakeasy. Dangerous, low-life creep. Short, bald, shifty-looking man. As an underworld character, he has “connections” everywhere, and can be a valuable informant, for the right price. You’d better stay away from him.
