- Thomas Wollstonecraft Godwin- A tragic character whose far-fetched idealism is met with scrutiny and rejection. He is a thoughtful and lonely man. His demeanor is shaped by the loss of his children. Though he has suffered much, his brilliance is tempered with unwavering values of charity and altruism. He sincerely and hopelessly believes in the good of man.
- Albert Corlett- A prudish and conservative man, Albert developed his prejudice against man during his early years in science. Often bullied or outcast, he concludes that the populace is a dumb, gullible beast that is only good for manipulation. Equally brilliant as his friend and colleague, Thomas W. Godwin, he stands as an idealistic opposite to him.
- Nathaniel Boone- A man of Spartan-military origin, Boone spares no quarter for himself or his enemy. Imposing, intimidating, and efficient he embodies the cruel ethos of war. Somewhere within his stoic character lies a belied sense of honor that imperceptibly prevents him from becoming a heartless killer.
