Treasure in the Royal Tower is a computer game which was based loosely on a book of the same name. The book is part of a popular mystery series, created in 1930 by Edward Stratemeyer. The heroine of the books, as well as the computer game, is named Nancy Drew. It is based on book #128 in the Nancy Drew Mystery Stories series. It takes place in Wisconsin.

Characters:

  • Nancy Drew, the player character and detective of the series responsible for cracking the case.
  • Dexter Egan, an orphan, but later adopted son of Ezra Wickford. He resides in Wickford Castle as the caretaker, despite the fact that he was under no circumstances to inherit the castle after being disowned.
  • Professor Beatrice Hotchkiss, in her own words, a "scholar of French history," though "specializing in Marie Antoinette." She spends most of her time in her room (#214) typing away for her "research." Professor Hotchkiss returns in Legend of the Crystal Skull and Tomb of the Lost Queen.
  • Lisa Ostrum, a photojournalist who is at the castle to write an article about old Wisconsin mansions. Usually seen reading a magazine by the fire.
  • Jacques Brunais, a famous French skier. Nancy learns that he was formerly a contestant in "last year's Winter Olympics." Jacques is thought by many to be quite good-looking and spends his time at Wickford Castle as a ski instructor as well as making wooden "hope" boxes. He also has a fiancĂ© named Isabelle.
  • Ned Nickerson, Bess Marvin, and George Fayne, Nancy's best friends and boyfriend that help her with the case via telephone.
