  • LEO SZILARD (30) - A brilliant Hungarian physicist with an annoying habit of always being right. He sees the future and science as the way he's going to save it.
  • TRUDE WEISS (20) - A gifted doctor. She's smart enough to know how tough a life with Leo will be, and strong enough to deal with that.
  • ENRICO FERMI (30) - Italian Nobel-winning physicist. If it's not science, he's not interested.
  • ARTHUR COMPTON (30) - Nobel-winning quantum physicist and head of the Chicago Metlab. Torn between science and religion, morality and duty.
  • EDWARD TELLER (30) - A Hungarian genius like Leo with a more aggressive World view. He wants a bigger bomb.
  • LEONA WOODS (20) - The only woman on the Metlab team, but she's not going to let that stop her.
  • ROBERT OPPENHEIMER (30) - The bomb is his ticket to the recognition his brilliance deserves. It's an expensive ticket.
  • GENERAL GROVES (30) - Highly intelligent and quite reasonable. Till you get in his way. He will use the bomb to end the war. Yes he will.
  • PAUL TIBBETS (30) - A fearless young pilot with a keen sense of duty. If he can't win the war single-handed, he'll show how it's done.
