Like any small town, Muckey Landing has its fair share of colorful local characters. Luke Yoder and his elderly uncle, a pair of monosyllabic Amish weed farmers, drop by the store from time to time to buy parts or sell cheese. Police chief Neville Cheefe, fire chief Bunny Slatter and rookie firefighter Buck Firken argue about whether the series of mysterious fires around town are the work of terrorists or just your garden-variety spontaneous combustion. Psycho Bob, whom Harmon met during a brief overnight stay in the local slammer after a strawberry daiquiri-fueled birthday party, frequently pops in with his ex-Amish-turned-goth girlfriend, Raven, to make various threats on Harmon’s life for no reason that anybody can fathom. And Virgil and Harmon frequently spar with sarcastic über-receptionist Doral Bernstein, who seems to be the voice on the other end of the line every time they use the phone to check the time and temperature, report a gas leak, call for an ambulance, or take a lunch order.
