A contest got the designers of Mr. Jack 137 ideas for new characters. Out of those 137 two were chosen:
Steve McKeogh's “Spring-Heeled Man” who can jump over other people or obstacles
Arnaud Fillon's “Abberline”, an inspector
The expansion contains these 2 new characters and 3 others designed by Bruno Cathala and Ludovic Maublanc:
John Pizer, a butcher who frightens everyone
Joseph Lane, an anarchist who builds barricades
Madame, who can move fast, but won't enter the sewers
Furthermore, the expansion contains rules for a new way to set up the game.
