There is a long conversation between the two female characters at the begining of the movie. It is about several topics, mainly about the ritual that Sophia (Catherine Walker) is about to start.

The tricky thing is that the other woman is Sophia's sister (Susan Loughnane), whose name is never mentioned, although she is credited as Victoria on the final credits.

So, depending on how we interpret the naming policy, it would be a 0/3 if the sister is consisered an unnamed character, or a 3/3 if we take into the account the final credits.

I go for the 0/3, but it is dubious.
