1. "At the top of a squatty, three-story brick Sue and Johnsy had their studio. "Johnsy" was familiar for Joanna. One was from Maine; the other from California." The two most important characters of the short story.

2. Mr.Pneumonia. The killer disease which plays so important a role  is personified by O.Henry in this short story.

3. "The busy doctor" who treats Joanna and "Old Behrman."

4. and lastly, "Old Behrman was a painter who lived on the ground floor beneath them."

These are the names of the five characters in O. Henry's short story, "The Last Leaf."
