Edward Grimes – Lighthouse keeper when the October Gale strikes in the beginning of the book.

Mitchell Jarvis – Investigator for the Fifth Auditor. Conducts the inquiry regarding Edward Grimes. Cold and unfeeling. Very by the book, government employee. The people in Misty Cove don’t trust outsiders and it is obvious in their dealings with him.
