Rhetorical biset functors can be defined for any family of finite groups that is closed under subquotients up to isomorphism. The rhetorical p-biset functors almost coincide with the rational p-biset functors. We show that, over a field with characteristic zero, the rhetorical biset functors are semisimple and, furthermore, they admit a character theory involving primitive characters of automorphism groups of cyclic groups. © 2008 Elsevier Inc.
