This is a list of characters who have minor appearances or references in The Cat Lady.
Soul Candle Victims Edit
The Soul Candle Victims are three people who die when Susan Ashworth blows out one of the candles in The Queen of Maggots' "House in the Woods." In The Cat Lady, the player will witness their deaths after Susan blows out a candle, and their deaths are in chronological order and it doesn't matter which candle Susan picks, for example the Hangman will always die first.
The Hangman is the first person to die after Susan blows out a candle in Chapter 1. Accurate to his name, he is seen hanging himself in the intro out of grief and guilt, apologizing to someone. Both aforementioned characters are unimportant to the plot and are never referenced again, only serving as a plot device. There is nothing else known about him other then he is voiced by Dave Masterson, and was named in the credits.
Old Lady Edit
The Old Lady is the second person to die after Susan blows out a candle in Chapter 2. She appears to be in a hospital similar to the Cedar Lake Hospital, meaning she's somewhere in England, slowly dying while in bed. Two characters are seen walking outside her hospital room window during her death. She is never referenced again and is not important to the story, only serving as a plot device. Unlike the Hangman, she is never named.
The Driver is the third person to die after Susan blows out a candle in Chapter 5. Unlike the Hangman and the Old Lady, not even their gender is known, as they're never seen except for what looks vaguely like a human silhouette in the fogged up car window. They're seen driving a car on a field before managing to flip the car over, severely damaging it to the point of smoking, killing them. They're never named and never referenced again and are not important to the story, only serving as a plot device.
Mr. Ashworth & Mrs. Ashworth Edit
- As it is unknown whether Susan adopted the name "Ashworth" from her husband or retains her name from birth, and her parents are never named, they will be named Mr. Ashworth & Mrs. Ashworth and referred to simply as "Susan's parents."
Mr. Ashworth & Mrs. Ashworth are the parents of only-child Susan Ashworth. In The Cat Lady, they never appear and are only mentioned during Dr. Xavier Zelmann's therapy sessions at the Cedar Lake Hospital in Chapter 2.
Unlike some of the other dialogue options during the therapy sessions, the player can choose whichever options they like when Susan's parents are being discussed and Doctor X will never call her out about lying, as - with the exemption of some details - it is left up entirely to the player to determine what Susan's parents were like and how they met their fates.
