Four brothers live in London and work as job-masters, cab drivers, livery owners and Maud has set herself up as a tour guide for wealthy tourists. Maud designs her own seasonal tours, dresses up to suit the tour and advertises at the best hotels. She has an excellent knowledge of London especially the touristy bits. She likes to design bespoke tours for eccentric tourists; famous artists, ghosts and graveyards, famous episodes in London's history, divas and dancehalls are typical themes. Maud's skills apply mainly to London-based history, archaeology etc. Maud has grown up with her brothers and so rides very well and can drive most horse-drawn vehicles. She shares a flat with her youngest brother above the stables just off Bond St. Maud is an entrepreneurial business woman and loans a small office on Piccadilly with a secretary to take bookings.She and her brothers are well known in the transport trade and she has a good credit-rating with this class of people she is also well known in the major museums, galleries and 'attractions'.

Background: Alicia Douglas is the eldest daughter of a lower middle-class Scottish family. Her mother died when she was young and she had to give up her formal education early to help look after her younger siblings. She has always wanted to write books, particularly historical novels, but her lack of formal education has hampered this ambition. Instead, and for the time being at least, she is working as a journalist, writing for both the tabloid press and popular magazines, having to make her way in a largely male environment. She moved from Edinburgh to London five years ago, and rents a small room in a boarding house in the east end. She is fascinated by recent scientific discoveries, which she reads about as much as she can, and attends public lectures to learn more. She is also trying to develop her photography skills, and other artistic outlets.

Background: Reginald Smythe (Reg to his friends) is from a working-class family in London's East End. While he doesn't know how to act among high society, he is very chivalrous, always quick to be protective of women. His tremendous strength helped him contribute to supporting his family as a teenager. When he came of age, he took the Queen's shilling and enlisted in the British Army, dreaming of heroism after growing up on his grandfather's tales of his time in Crimea and the exploits of luminaries such as Lord Admiral Nelson and General Gordon. In the 1890s, he was part of the British expeditionary force that returned to the Sudan, where he served with distinction. After he came back from the war, he has been doing various odd jobs to make ends meet, and he is about to take on the oddest job of his life.
