Push, Nevada - Cast of Characters

Cast of Characters

  • Jim Prufrock: a mild-mannered IRS agent who travelled to Push, Nevada to investigate a fax that was accidentally sent to his office.
  • Mary Sloman: a 'Slo-dancer' at the local bar who seems to have a great interest in Jim's well-being.
  • Grace: Jim's enigmatic secretary at the IRS.
  • Silas Bodnick: a rude, little, bald man who's been skimming approximately a million dollars from the Versailles Casino each year. He's involved with Watermark LLC, but has no idea how powerful they really are.
  • Dwight Sloman: a crooked businessman, owner of many of Push's establishments (including the Versailles Casino, and the Slo-Dance Bar), and as we find out later, he is Mary's incestuous father.
  • Caleb Moore: body-temp-deficient local who helps Bodnick steal the money and Bible from the Versailles safe.
  • BRB: a strange truck driver, who picks up Jim in the desert after his car breaks down. BRB is also involved with Watermark.
  • Job: an "honest mechanic" in the town of Push. He tows and fixes Jim's car after it breaks down - - for free.
  • Martha: the owner and operator of Martha's Boarding House. She seems to have known Jim's father, Alfred, from her Slo-Dancing days.
  • Ira Glassman: Jim's boss at the IRS. Ira is a Yes-man. He does what he's told by his superiors, and apparently cannot think for himself.
  • Sheriff Gaines: a moron. His idiocy could be the result of blind obedience to the Watermark boys. Clearly, they control him.
  • Dawn: at first, Dawn appears to be a flakey, quirky Sheriff's Deputy. Later, we learn she is an agent from the U.S. Treasury, investigating Dwight Sloman.
  • Shadrack: an eccentric, desert artist. Shadrack used to be a city official in Push, before Watermark took over. He also used to know Jim's father, as well.
  • Darlene: Jim's soon to be ex-wife. She has more addictions than she has money, so between drunken one-night-stands, she calls Jim for more money, which he actually sends. Later, Watermark does their voo-doo on Darlene, and she transforms herself into the perfect little house-wife, trying to woo Jim back into her arms (and out of Push, Nevada).
  • Delilah: a former Slo-Dancer, now BRB's wife. She's under Watermark's mind-control, but senses there is something wrong with her own behavior.
  • Oswald Wilkes: Silas Bodnick's killer (with the serpent tattoo).
  • The Well Dressed Men: those three expensive suited, Lexus driving corporate-thugs. They are the go-between for Watermark and Dwight Sloman. They handle Watermark's Public Relations, as well, through persuasive suggestion.
  • Michael Sudris: Job's tattoo-artist friend (Finally, thanks to the Push Experiment book that still lingers in cyberspace, we know his name). He tattoos Jim's back with, "Death & Taxes". He couldn't handle the mind-control attempts of Watermark when they first began in Push. He flipped out one day, and moved to Demonhead Flatts in his trailer/tattoo parlor, to smoke peyote, and never watch TV again.

    For our vanity is such that we hold our own characters immutable, and we are slow to acknowledge that they have changed, even for the better.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    People who treat other people as less than human must not be surprised when the bread they have cast on the waters comes floating back to them, poisoned.
