"BIG SUIT" STU - sharp -dressed gangster; his bark is much worse than his bite
BODYGUARD - Speaks with Russian and German accents. A man (or woman) of few words.
SWEET SUE - Ditsy girlfriend of Big Suit Stu. Dreams of being a star, but has no talent.
CHIEF INSPECTOR CONSTANTINE - Police inspector; confused, unkempt and shabby.
