I can help you there:

Rev. Rob Robbins (his first name is really "Mervyn")
Annys (witch in L.A.)
Julius R. Christmas (Mary's dad)
Langi, the native girlfriend (seems to be the pet form of "Langitokoua"
which is also used in the text)

Also a quick note on unrelated matters: the current Lexicon auctions (Y8,
Y9, Y10, Y11, and Y12) will be ending tomorrow.  When these are gone there
will be only seven left.
