Hannah Ferguson: Hannah is the owner of the Spitfire Grill. She is a tough-skinned and flinty old bird with a short, no-nonsense manner bordering on the bitter. She can also be very tender-hearted and fiercely loyal. She has a secret of her own to protect. - Alto

Caleb Thorpe: The out-of-work foreman of the now-defunct stone quarry, Caleb is a frustrated man clinging to the past and the authority he once had. He bitterly opposes change. - Baritone to G
Sheriff Joe Sutter: Joe is a young, small-town policeman with a restless nature and a genuine desire to escape Gilead. - Tenor to G/A
