Passengers are the small people the player has to try to protect in the Skywire series. Many of the small bean people went into the cable car. Many fall out of the cable car during the game, while some survived the ride as it progressed to the end. There are approximately 150 bean people created for the Skywire series who have also play roles in other games. The bean people take the spotlight in the game, Skywire V.I.P.
The first three bean people are obviously Mat Annal, Heather Stancliffe, and Lee Nicklen, because those bean people were standing next to their names in the credits section of Skywire 2.
It is possible that the Viking bean person is one of the vikings from the Ice Breaker series, but it is also possible that it isn't, due to the fact that Skywire 2 was being made in May or April, and if Icebreaker was made at the same time, and was released on January 5th 2009, that is an awfully long time for a game like Icebreaker to be made, since the sequel was possibly being made in January or February. It is also possible that the Viking bean person was an inspiration for Icebreaker.
The brown haired girl looks similar Princess Leia from Star Wars.
It is possible that some bean people could represent Nitrome employees, or relatives of Nitrome employees.
