PREFERRED, AND FLEXIBILITY IS A MUST.

A SOCIOPATH, JUDE GREW UP GETTING INTO TROUBLE WITH NO BOUNDARIES OF

OFTEN SARCASTIC AND QUICK WITTED. MARTIAL ARTS BACKGROUND PREFERRED, AND
FLEXIBILITY IS A MUST.

IS THE SECOND SON OF TOBIAS. THE PERFECT MILITARY MIND. BORDERLINE
SOCIOPATH TENDENCIES, ACCOMPANIED BY ILL TEMPTER AND ANGER ISSUES. VERY
INTELLIGENT, AND LACKS EMPATHY OR COMPASSION FOR THOSE AROUND HIM. MARSHAL

BILLIONAIRE, RESPONSIBLE FOR MOST OF THE WORLDS TECHNOLOGY. OWNER OF A
GLOBAL EMPIRE CALLED “ATLAS”. TOBIAS IS VERY INTELLIGENT, A GERMAPHOBE,
SCIENTIST, GENETICIST. HE IS ECCENTRIC IN HIS WAYS, AND SPEAKS IN A VERY
CALM FASHION. DESPITE HIS DEMEANOR ON THE EXTERIOR, TOBIAS POSSESSES VERY
DARK THOUGHTS AND SECRETS. HE IS VERY EASILY CAPABLE OF MURDER, SOMETIMES
WITHOUT REASON TOWARDS THOSE WHO SEEM UNDESERVING.

PATTY (AGE 50’S) – MOTHER TO SHAWN. PATTY IS A VERY STRONG WILLED WOMAN.

PROGRAMMING, SHE ALSO HAS A PENCHANT FOR STICKING IT TO THE MAN. SHE IS
CHILDHOOD FRIENDS WITH SHAWN.

SELF-CONFIDENCE OFTEN, AND IS VERY AFRAID OF JUDE. SHE WORKS AT THE
NITECLUB WITH ALYSHA.

ROBERT WRIGHT (AGE 40’S TO 50’S) – ROBERT IS THE VERY DEFINITION OF A SALT
OF THE EARTH KIND OF GUY. FATHER TO SHAWN AND BRITTANY, HE HAS TRIED TO
INSTILL AS MUCH WISDOM AS HE CAN WITHIN THEM. FAMILY, DUTY, AND HONOR WERE
THE TENETS BY WHICH HE LIVED, IN THAT ORDER. HE WAS A RESPECTED MAN BY
EVERYONE, SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THE WAY HE CONDUCTED HIMSELF.

YOUNG SHAWN WRIGHT (AGE 10 – 14) – YOUNG SHAWN WAS BOLD AND BRASH, BUT
GREATLY RESPECTED HIS FATHER. HE LEARNED WHAT HE COULD AS HE COULD, AND
WAS FOR THE MOST PART A GOOD KID WHO WOULD DO WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS RIGHT.

YOUNG BOY (AGE 9 – 12) – A YOUNG BOY LIVING A HARD LIFE ON THE STREETS OF
ZONE 705. HE DOES WHAT HE HAS TO DO TO SURVIVE, GENERALLY CONNING PEOPLE
OUT OF MONEY, OR STEALING WHAT HE CAN WITH HIS FRIENDS.

NOT EXCEPTIONALLY BRIGHT, MOSTLY DUE TO THE CHEMICALS JUDE FEEDS HIM.

SCHOOL PRINCIPAL (AGE 50’S – 60’S) – STERN OLDER GENTLEMAN WHO GOVERNS THE SCHOOL OVER YOUNG SHAWN WRIGHT AND TWITCH.

SERVANT – A FAITHFUL SERVANT TO TOBIAS, ALWAYS WILLING TO DO AS THEY’VE
BEEN TOLD. QUITE IN NATURE.

SOLDIER 1 – A SPECIAL FORCES SOLDIER WITH MARSHAL’S TEAM, THAT HAS FAILED
TO FOLLOW ORDERS BASED AROUND THEIR OWN MORALITY.

THUG 1 & 2 – TWO THUGS WHO AREN’T ABOVE KILLING SOMEONE TO GET WHAT THEY
WANT. SCUM OF THE EARTH TYPE GOONS, WHO USE PHYSICAL INTIMIDATION
REGULARLY.

REPORTER 1, 2, & 3 – THE REPORTERS INTERVIEWING TOBIAS. IT’S CONSIDERED
QUITE AN HONOUR TO BE ABLE TO BE IN ON HIS PRESS CONFERENCES. GETTING A
TOBIAS STORY IS THE EQUIVALENT OF WINNING A PULITZER.
