Anybody mind if I take a bit of a roll call... in character, of course? I'm a bit at sea as to who's character is whose - and by doing it in character, folks can introduce as much or as little information as their characters would normally give out. For example, my Dr. Zelman, Professor Wessex, and Detective Wessex would likely announce their profession and/or university affiliation, while O'Neill wouldn't.
"You fought with Captain Reynolds in the war?"
"I fought with a lot of people in the war."
"And your husband?"
"I fight with him sometimes, too."
