-The type A, alpha male; Alan is often too absorbed in his cellphone to give his wife, or his hosts any form of attention and when he does he sports a distaste towards any type of proper parenting.
-An uptight and repressed woman who is constantly anxious and worrying about the resolution of this conflict. She makes up for her smaller demeanour with her fiery temper.
-A friendly man who is outgoing and personable but has a secret distaste for his wife’s work, their children and most of all hamsters.
-A “mother bear” type who is hard set in her liberal beliefs and attempts to play the peace keeper. She is the most logical and organized of the group but she reserves the right to ruthlessly judge everyone’s behaviour.
