I had posted these in a separate thread that wasn't really going anywhere, so I decided to move them here instead. My idea was to create a few characters with "play on words" names similar to the way Melba Peach is a takeoff on Peach Melba. Here they are:

Mr. Chip Chocolate
*A reporter, if you can call it that, for Hampshire's notorious rag, the Tattle, Chip authored (among other things) the infamous article detailing the unsavory details of Miss Josephine Scarlet's expulsion from Mme. Puce's School for Girls. What other scandals has he uncovered?

Nanny Jean Blue
*A woman from Mrs. Peacock and Miss Scarlet's past. After the death of her first husband James, Mrs. Patricia Scarlet hired Jean as a nanny to her 2-year-old daughter, Josephine. What's behind her mysterious return?

Ambassador Foster Banana
*England's ambassador to Prince Azure's country. What's his involvement with the Prince's shady antiques dealings?

Ms. Candy Cotton
*A young lady employed as a stewardess aboard the Black/Boddy private jet. Does she long to be a real member of the jet set?

Inspector Trueman Rye (Instead of Inspector Pry... because 'PRY' has no color orgin...)

The lonely and most times nosy Inspector has stumbled upon the gates the lovely and somewhat menacing Tudor Mansion... He knows something isn't right... He just needs the perfect opportunity to get in and stop the madness going on inside...

(Possible victim...)

Good one!

How about a musician or a scientist that works with prisms (Dark Side of the Moon)?

I had thought about the musician angle, but actually, when I called him "Commodore" it's because I was picturing someone akin to Admiral Boom from "Mary Poppins": retired from Her Majesty's Navy, a bit daft, that sort of thing. Still, it's something to consider.

BTW, it's Dark Side of the Moon, not Far Side. :)

She has tried to polish off Custard. When Custard starts pushing up daisy's Dr. Pineneedle will be in the lap of luxury. Did she kill him to make money quicker?
One of my pride characters though I'm going to update her bio---

NAME: Dr. Adele Marie Pineneedle

AGE: 47

D.O.B.: November 8th

OCCUPATION: Personal Doctor to Sir Henry Custard

MARITAL STATUS: Single

PROFILE:
Dr. Pineneedle has cared for Henry Custard all his life and she is quite fed up with the old man. She has made many comments about her past and she worries this senile man will slip up h er secrets in front of someone that won't have the mercy to keep it a secret. She was found to have a syringe filled with poison that she tried to use on Custard, but did not accomplish this task, for Reginald Ash came into the room when she had the needle. She has tried to polish off Custard on many occasions, including one time where she tripped him down the stairs. He survived the fall and is none wiser of this sexy little slip. Dr. Pineneedle is waiting for the perfect opportunity to kill him. Little does she know that many other people have reasons to kill him as well. Custard feels Dr. Pineneedle is the only one he can trust, so he left his estate to her. So indeed, when Custard starts pushing up daisy's Dr. Pineneedle will be in the lap of luxury. Did she kill him to make money quicker or was she in shock when the will was read?

Sure why not---

Lady Melinda Oakwood

The head of the gossip and owner of the fine Oakwood Manor in the forest on the other side of town... Lady Oakwood socializes with Mrs. Peacock... but believes Mrs. Peacock to be in a class much lower than her own... Mrs. Peacock fantasizes the day when she will be as famous as her... maybe that's why she's inherited so much from husbands...

Dr. Rex Prussian

Mr. Boddy's physician who is tending to the illness that Mr. Boddy has been keeping a secret from his friend... Dr. Prussian realizes that Mr. Boddy is very fond of him and may leave him more than dirty sheets after he dies... Perhaps Dr. Prussian needed the money... now!

Sir Winfred Peach II

The lovely, overbearing father of Miss Peach. The day she turned 18 she left the family... Sir Peach has been keeping tabs on his daugther... hoping she'd return... He even has been paying Mr. Boddy to keep tabs on her since she is in the same town as Mr. Boddy... Sir Peach came to Boddy's Mansion to find out they had been sleeping together... could that arouse murder?

Mr. Sonny DeView

Mr. DeView is the exlover of Miss Scarlet. It was quite a drastic turn that caused their break up. I believe his words were: "Either you marry me, or your mother finds out about you and the Colonel." She pleaded that she doesn't love him. He merely responded, "Frankly, Scarlet, I don't give a damn. She managed to escape from his devious plan somehow. After nearly forgetting about him and putting him out of her mind he reappears, his offer stronger than ever. "If you marry me you will both inherit my millions and your mothers. If you refuse I will tell your mother everything and you won't inherit a penny from her or a penny from me." Miss Scarlet has to make a choice, but could she kill to stay with the man she loves...

Ms. Deirdre Mauve

The 48-year-old 'I wish I were' type who sucks in her stomach and peels off her makeup in on piece. All her money has been wasted on trying to make her prettier and more known, but she is a fastfood fantic...

This is a fantastic character for the colour orange! But, no need to limit him to being a butler. I could see a Dr. Harold Persimmon, a colleague of Dr. Black's, or merely an MD at Mr. Boddy's dinner party.

Of course adding an MD complicates things as Agatha Christie showed us, but I think we all agree one must seriously suspend disbelief when contemplating the method of the victim's demise. I like the idea of having a Dr. at the house.

As do I, but I usually assign that role to Peacock.
