All that stands between Willow Goodpearson getting a fifty million dollar donation to save the rainforests of Borneo during her weekend visit to Theobald Rhinelander’s creepy mansion in the north woods of Wisconsin is a pack of hungry wolves, a basement infested with black widow spiders, a ghost in the attic, LaToya Worthy and her nemesis from the Society to Eliminate Cancer, Dr. Constance Carealot.

Willow Goodpearson: Earnest and ethical, Willow is the nearsighted representative of The Coalition to Save Nature who is good at taking charge of things. She has clashed with Dr. Carealot from the Society to Eliminate Cancer over donors before. (Late twenties and up)
LaToya Worthy: A former Peace Corps volunteer and representative of the Feed the World’s Children Fund, LaToya is passionate spokesperson for her cause. Unfortunately for her, she is quite easily spooked. (late twenties and up)
Dr. Constance Carealot: The good doctor is attractive, well-dressed and is willing to do anything to persuade Theobald to donate his wealth to the Society to Eliminate Cancer. She has something of a superiority complex as well. (in her thirties)
