Improv with Me?

The prompt for Week 8 of therealljidol is "Yes, and," which of course is the key philosophy behind improv. You're supposed to say "yes" to your fellow actors' "offerings" and then build on them. So I'm going to write this week's entry based on audience suggestions.

I did this before, and it ended up a bit long, so I'm going to reduce the number of suggestions I take this time. Weigh in under the appropriate comments below to provide your ideas, and just like improv actors choose from among the suggestions called out from the audience, I will choose from among your suggestions to create my piece.

This should be fun!

Character suggestions
Please give me suggestions of characters to include in my piece. You can give me types (such as a femme fatale), professions (such as a doctor) or other descriptions (such as a young girl who loves unicorns). I will need at least 3 total characters.
