Captain Bluntschli  A professional soldier from Switzerland who is serving in the Serbian army. He  is thirty-four years old, and he is totally realistic about the stupidity of war. Raina Petkoff  The romantic idealist of twenty-three who views war in terms of noble and heroic  deeds. Sergius Saranoff  The extremely handsome young Bulgarian officer who leads an attack against the  Serbs which was an overwhelming success. Major Petkoff  The inept, fifty-year-old father of Raina; he is wealthy by Bulgarian standards, but he  is also unread, uncouth, and incompetent. Catherine Petkoff  Raina's mother; she looks like and acts like a peasant, but she wears fashionable  dressing gowns and tea gowns all the time in an effort to appear to be a Viennese lady. Louka  The Petkoffs' female servant; she is young and physically attractive, and she uses her  appearance for ambitious preferment. Nicola
