the characters were all largely motivated by protecting themselves or someone they loved with the exceptions of those only after the jewels who were motivated by money.

wimsey was motivated by the puzzle and wanting to solve the mystery.

Pip | 1451 comments Lord Peter Wimsey is sharp, thoughtful and observant, as well as witty, well-mannered and rich. The Reverend Theodore Venables is an intelligent man but forgetful and delightfully dotty. Hillary is a young woman with intelligence and a desire to be independent. Jeff Deacon is unreliable, plausible, greedy and reckless. Bunter is the ideal man-servant, unobtrusive but exceedingly competent.

John Seymour I like Pip's descriptions. I would add that Mrs. Venables is long-suffering and supportive of her husband and competent - the true organizing force in the parish.
