The last one of our trio of protags is senior Charles, who used to be a television actor back in the 1980s but since has washed into obscurity and nowadays living a lonely life.
Other recurring Characters include the victim Tim Kono(played by Julian Cihi) who as later revealed used to work as a stockbroker for none other than Sting, ya you heard that right the Rockstar Sting (more on it later).

In the last episode, we had seen Mabel acting strange which in turn was related to getting and Tim’s past, where they used to be fans of The Hardy Boys.
