Udo and Gretchen
Herr Udo Sweinhoffer and his older sister Gretchen live together in the old farmstead on Bommenberg in the german Swiss Alps that their parents and their grandparents before them lived in - tending goats on the green lowlands below Hasstopf, making the famous (and remarkably sour) Bommenberger cheese and renting out their small upstairs-room to ramblers and depressive landscape painters in the warm wet summer months.
Gretchen is now too old to bear children so this March Udo must leave his beloved mountain home and search for a wife at the Karlswald Spring Fair.
