: John. An unemployed alcoholic who has given up on the vast majority of his dreams, with the exception of one, the girl he has had a crush on, Kate. A woman John keeps having a recurring dream about every night. John’s goal is to find Kate in waking life and finally confess his love to her.
Kate: Kate is John’s crush. Kate is also John’s wife, but John doesn’t realise he is married to Kate all along. Kate’s goal is to take John home after his day drinking sessions in his local pub, but will she succeed in this endeavour.
Agnes the Witch: Agnes is the protagonist of the story. Agnes, nicknamed the Witch, is a local character who dresses up as a witch and has a distinct cackle, not unlike a witch in fact. John keeps mistaking Agnes for Kate, as she has long flowing black hair, not unlike Kate’s. When John approaches her and realises it isn’t Kate, he is infuriated, but Agnes keeps returning to antagonise our hero.
