A friend of Rose's, who she recently wrote to.

The Letters

Dear Rose,

How are you doing? I haven't gotten messages from you in some time. I hope life is treating you well. Last I heard of, you were in the middle of planning some sort of crazy scheme to buy an old Victorian mansion. So, what ever became of that? Did you buy it? Now, how can you afford to do something like that? Who did you find as a partner to help lead this plan?

I hate to admit it, but I haven't been up to a whole lot lately. Life around here has been pretty dull. Nothing too great is happening here, just a bit of the same ol', same ol'. I need to fall into wealth, fame, and fortune so I'll have more to write about. how's your cat and that friend of yours, Abby? The last time we spoke, she talked a lot about gold and its great spiritual significance.

Maybe I'll follow your lead and take on an ambitious project of my own! I could use the money. I've been saving to drive out west to visit you. An adventure on the road could be just the key to motivate me. If some of the rumors I've heard of your buying this house are true, I'll definitely have to come and visit! I'll use the excuse of coming to visit to check out your new investment!

I'm learning Chinese and also considering taking a trip to Beijing. A friend of mine sent me a poem she wrote in Chinese the other day. Now I want to go there!

Well enough rambling! I've got to go, but I hope to hear from you soon!

Yours truly, Hue Straddenier

Dear Hue,

I'm doing great! How are you? Yes, the rumors are true: I bought myself a Victorian mansion! It's funny you should mention Abby; she's actually the one who decided to go in on this [deal] with me. We're still in the process of restoring the glace. It's a lot of fun, but also a lot of fund work. We're beginning to get a little worried that we'll fall behind schedule if we're not careful. There've been several accidents lately that have interfered with our work.

When you visit, you can stay in the Chinese room! We've just bought some new furniture for the room! We're just waiting for the wallpaper to dry before we move everything in. With all of the distractions and the schedule, by the time I finish writing this letter, I'm sure we will have completed the restorations altogether! I'll try to get it into the mail before [Letter ends]

The Final Scene

Sergeant Mac Ramsey

Voiced by Bob Heath

Sherman Trout

Voiced by Scott Carty

Sherman Trout is a historian at the United States Library of Congress. He worked with Eustacia Andropov while assembling the Harry Houdini collection (she called him "Shermie"). He is able to send Nancy a projection slide concerning the fate of Houdini's ownership of the theater.

Louisa Falcone

Louisa Falcone is Nicholas' paternal grandmother, who built the theater in 1925. However, J.J. Thompson swindled her, and did not pay her. She later died at the age of 97.

As it turns out, J. J. wanted to give her part ownership of the theater (as he did with Harry Houdini), and Houdini signed the contract with him. For whatever reason, Louisa was never informed of this. The documents remained hidden away in a secret attic, until Nancy found them in 2001.

Jacob Hughes

Jacob Hughes is the late brother of Joseph Hughes. Joseph tells Nancy that, after the demolition, he plans to move to Greasewood, Arizona, and open a movie theater with Jake there. However, as Nancy discovers, Jake died from emphysema about six months prior to the game. It seems that he and Joseph may have been estranged, as no one there knew he even had a brother, and Jake never mentioned any family.

He is the paternal grandfather of Jeff Akers, though he hides it out of shame for Willie's past as a gangster.

Uncle Zak

Bess' uncle, who is a bird hunter. She does not like him, although she does not elaborate on whether it's because of his hunting, or other reasons. He could possibly be George's uncle, although as Bess said "My Uncle Zak" while with George, it is safe to assume he is not a relative of George.

Ernst and Gunter Schmeck

Voiced by Stephen Hando and Tim Moore

Two German businessmen. The brothers own Schmeck Brothers Shipping and Delivery, and live in Paris. They are first mentioned on the fifth day (September 1), when Nancy can read the newspaper where they are the top story. It is later revealed they are associates of Minette, who paid her a "small fortune" to alter the First Lady's dress so they could eavesdrop on the World Summit and sell secrets.

Newspaper Article


Gunther and Ernst Schmeck, owners of Schmeck Brothers Shipping and Delivery, called a press conference yesterday to dispel the rumor that their company has been smuggling stolen goods into Paris for reputed German mobster Wolfgang Fetzer.

Gunther Schmeck, who did most of the talking, was unequivocal. "We are legitimate businessmen and have never engaged in illegal activities of any kind. This vicious rumor was obviously started by someone searching for a scapegoat, someone who assumed that just because we once worked for the government of East Germany, people would automatically think we are guilty. And we are most certainly not."

When asked what kind of work they had done for the East German government, Gunter Schmeck admitted that he and Ernst had been members of the secret police, or STASI. "But that was almost twenty years ago," Gunther Schmeck pointed out. "Moreover, back then we were doing the government's work. Now we work for ourselves. Our past has absolutely no bearing on our present."

The rumor of their alleged involvement with Fetzer started to circulate after one of Fetzer's associates, Nils Dilman, was arrested for possession of stolen property.

The Haunting of Castle Malloy

Alan Payne

Alan is the boss of Matt Simmons, and his best man. Matt reportedly asked Alan to be his best man, in hopes that he would get a raise or promotion; however, it was also implied that Matt asked him instead of his best friend Kit Foley due to Kit still having feelings for Kyler. Alan initially came to Castle Malloy with Matt, Kit, and Kyler, to help with the wedding. However, he decided to go back to London after Matt's disappearance, due to infighting among the trio and the assumption Matt was pulling a prank.

Nancy is able to call him about his time at Castle Malloy on the payphone outside the Inn.
