From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Sherlock Holmes – Holmes is the famed 221B Baker Street detective with a keen eye, acute intelligence and a logical mind. He is observation and deduction personified, and although he takes a back seat to Watson for much of this particular adventure, we always feel his presence. In the end, it takes all of his crime-solving powers to identify an ingenious killer, save the life of his next intended victim, and solve the Baskerville mystery.

Dr John Watson – The novel's narrator, Watson is Holmes's stalwart assistant at Baker Street and the chronicler of his triumphs as a private investigator. He steps for a while into Holmes's boots, expressing his eagerness to impress his colleague by cracking this most baffling of cases before Holmes returns to the fray.

Sir Hugo Baskerville – The 17th-century Baskerville who spawned the legend of the family curse. Sir Hugo was a picture of aristocratic excess, drunkenness and debauchery until, one night, he was reputedly killed near Baskerville Hall, in the wilds of Dartmoor, by a demonic hound sent to punish his wickedness.

Sir Charles Baskerville – The recently deceased owner of the Baskerville estates in Devon, Sir Charles was a superstitious bachelor in waning health. Long terrified by the Baskerville legend, his footprints show that he must have been fleeing from something at the time of his death in the grounds of Baskerville Hall. Furthermore, the paw-prints of a large dog marked the soil near his corpse. Sir Charles had been a philanthropist. His enlightened plans to invest funds in the isolated district surrounding Baskerville Hall prompt his heir, Sir Henry, to want to move there and continue his uncle's good works.

Sir Henry Baskerville – The late Sir Charles's nephew and closest known relative, Henry Baskerville inherits the baronetcy. He is described as "a small, alert, dark-eyed man about thirty years of age, very sturdily built." Sir Henry is introduced by his doctor to Holmes and Watson, who travel to Devon in order protect him from what may be a plot to kill him and thus eliminate the last of the Baskervilles. At the climax of the story, Sir Henry is almost killed, like his uncle, by a ferocious hound, kept hidden among the mires of Dartmoor and trained by the villain of the story to prey on selected victims.

Dr Mortimer – A medical practitioner and friend of the Baskervilles. Mortimer is tall, thin and good-natured with rather eccentric habits. He is, nonetheless, a competent country doctor who was made the executor of Sir Charles's will. He sets the book's plot in train by travelling to London to inform Holmes and Watson about the strange events surrounding Sir Charles's demise, and alerting them to the dangerous situation that Sir Henry now faces as Sir Charles's heir. Mortimer continues to assist Holmes and Watson in their twin roles as investigators and bodyguards until the conclusion of the case.

Jack Stapleton – A bookish former schoolmaster, Stapleton chases butterflies on the moors and pursues antiquarian interests. Outwardly a polished gentleman, he inwardly possesses a hot temper which reveals itself at key moments. It transpires that Stapleton—in reality a long-lost relative of Sir Henry's who stands to inherit the Baskerville fortune—is a scheming, manipulative and money-hungry criminal.
