Mr. Boddy already has two adopted daughters already, Dr. Orchid and Miss Peach. Maybe Matilda Mauve could be Heather's maid (She could replaced Rosa Rodriguez).

In case we have to make our own backstories for the characters, Bronze's and Ocean's might clash since I have him down as already married

You can make your own backgrounds for your characters, but if you can’t think of any, I’ll make them for you.

A small part I wrote for the prologue:
Friday, 12th June, 2026 - Hampshire, England
The Lounge
It was about ten past noon. The lounge of Tudor Close was filled with friends with good spirits today, for it is John Boddy’s 30th birthday. It’s also the day where Mr. Boddy where he inherits his family’s estate - Tudor Close. To celebrate this occasion, Mr. Boddy had invited all of his closest friends to a weekend retreat at his Hampshire country home.

Colonel Micheal Mustard, Ex-SAS officer, puffed on his cigar while sitting on one of the leather chairs near the large marble fireplace.
“I say Blanche,” the old colonel said, “where is that husband of yours? Shouldn’t he be here with his guest?”
Micheal was talking to Blanche White, the wife of John Boddy. “In the attic.” Balance replied. “He said he was looking through some old things with Rose.”
“Old things? I wondered what?”
“Probably old photos of the family.” Mrs. Elizabeth Peacock answered. Mrs. Peacock was close to the Black family. “Poor things, to grow up without parents.”

“Well good thing Hugh took them,” Colonel Mustard said, “if not they would be in a oprahange, with their father being an orphan.” The colonel was talking about John’s late uncle, Dr. Hugh Black. Hugh was the older brother of Brooklyn Black, the mother of John and Rose Boddy. After her and her husband's deaths in 2006, Dr. Black took in his nephew and niece.
Still working on it, any thoughts so far?
