Characters

Larry Ott

  • one of the novel's two protagonists
  • called "Scary Larry" by locals - a gentle weirdo to them
  • lives a rather simplistic life characterized by routine in a decaying house
  • has a faible for horror novels $\rightarrow$ enhances rumours about him
  • owns an auto repair shop, that he inherited from his father $\rightarrow$ unsuccessful because of the rumours about him
  • "person of interest" because he was last person seen with a girl that vanished 25 years ago $\rightarrow$ condemned by the town and ostracized by the community because everyone believed he had something to do with her disappearance
  • has always been weird, loved to read books and was interested in snakes, but not in sports for which he is criticized by his father
  • due to that, he only wishes for a single friend
  • Larry’s childhood and youth was troubled by rejection and verbal violence from his school mates
  • temperament is arguably that of the loner (thoughtful, solitary, sensitive, and emotionally troubled)
  • lack of relationship as an adult defined as much by those aspects of temperament as by his external circumstances (being suspected of being a killer)
  • his race doesn't gain him more respect than Silas $\rightarrow$ as much of an outcast (due to what is believed about him) as Silas is (due to his skin color)

Silas Jones

  • second main character
  • key figure in the novel’s thematic exploration of racism
  • came to Chabot as a young boy when his mother had to leave Chicago
  • first meets Larry with his father Carl in the morning on their daily drive to school
  • Larry and Silas eventually become friends (also because Larry discovers that Silas is living in an old shack on his parents property)
  • friendship weakens when they are teenagers, culminating in Silas leaving town on a baseball scholarship
  • Silas returns to Chabot as a policeman directing traffic
  • refuses to get in touch with Larry when he tries to call Silas
  • drives a department-issued old Jeep
  • rather ordinary life
  • had never had a father figure $\rightarrow$ grew up the child of a single mother
  • ironical because Silas and Larry had the same biological father
  • clearly loved his mother, she always tried to protect and take care of him (not like Larry's mother), but connection to his mother is not as strong as the one between Larry and his mother
  • outsider: in spite of athletic success as baseball player, his race prevented him from being fully accepted and liked
  • character: easygoing, outgoing
  • affable, positive, even sexual relationships
  • has respect from his peers and colleagues, interact with Silas’ ambition to give him a future

Tina Rutherford

  • first of two murdered young women
  • it's a mystery of how she died $\rightarrow$ revelation of that drives plot of story
  • member of wealthiest family in Chabot
  • disappearance / death particularly significant to the community due to her status

Cindy Walker

  • second young woman who disappeares in the story
  • disappearance defines novel's plot and sense of mystery
  • her death took place in the past but still affects present (still unresolved, Larry still ostracized due to him being the main person of interest)
  • primary manifestation of the novel's thematic interest in the relationship between past and present
  • character roughly described, appears several times throughout novel, willful, sexual, somewhat selfish, and something of a troublemaker

Carl Ott

  • abusive, racist father of Larry
  • biological father of Silas Jones, who had a distant relationship with Carl years before he (Silas) knew Carl was his dad
  • portrayed as cruel, sadistic, and insensitive, not just to his family but also to others in the community
  • appears only in the past, having died before the primary events of the novel begin

Ina Ott

  • Larry's mother and Carl's wife
  • compassionate and sensitive towards her son, and outspoken towards her husband
  • appears in both the past and the present
  • present: in a hospital suffering from Alzheimer's disease
  • provides Silas with information that changes his life and eventually that of Larry as well

Alice Jones

  • Silas' mother
  • used to be the maid of Carl and Ina Ott
  • after getting pregnant with Carl's child, she moved to Chicago
  • raised Silas there until she had to move back to Chabot due to the betrayal of her boyfriend in Chicago
  • protective of her son and confused by aspects of his character (knows that something is missing in him)
  • strong-willed and determined
  • resigned to the difficulties of the situation (black single mother of a child fathered by a married white man)

Cecil Walker

  • step-father of Cindy
  • portrayed as nasty, inappropriately sexual, and emotionally abusive
  • he is likely the person who actually did kill Cindy

Wallace Stringfellow

  • young, very disturbed, poor white man
  • suspected of having broken driving laws
