  Cast

The Security Guard Name:
John Brown

Likes:
Making people smile, work, video game, cats, hanging out with friends

Bio:
Ever since John was knee high to a tortellini, he always expressed a desire to help people. In his grade school years, John would be a frequent member of the ‘Safety Patrol’. A select group of kids who wore a neon yellow sash and a shiny plastic badge who took it upon themselves to promote general safety and to keep other kids safe. Since then, he’s taken on many jobs in an effort to see what would fit him best. A customer service representative, a barista, a stagehand and a pro-wrestling referee are just some of the jobs he took in his search. He eventually discovered a security guard position at the local mall where he’s been working ever since. He’s a perpetual ball of positive energy which can alternate between being a good thing and a bad thing.

The Wrestler Name:
Iris Davenport

Likes:
Video games, long walks on the beach, hanging out with friends, cuddling

Bio:
Iris always had a love and passion for health and fitness. From an early age she pursued gymnastics and worked out at gyms regularly. Unfortunately this led her to being a sort of outcast in most social circles. Iris eventually decided to adopt a cold and uncaring face when out in public, keeping her true, softer personality a secret. It made her miserable but it made outside life bearable. She did this facade for most of her adult life. That is, until she met John. Ever since then, she’s been able to open up about herself, her interests and felt as though she was finally comfortable in being herself. She’s normally shy and soft-spoken but can be driven to her villainous wrestling alter-ego if pushed into a confrontation, which can be frightening for both parties involved..

The Bartender Name:
Sebastian Okada

Likes:
Making a good drink, watching movies, word puzzles, flirting, John

Bio:
Sebastian has always excelled in various educational institutions. In grade school, he’d be getting A’s and B’s, acing tests and showing a strong understanding of engineering. So how did he end up flunking college just short of getting his degree? Simple, he flunked on purpose. The truth was that he didn’t enjoy any of it. His school, the work, everything. “Just because you’re good at something, doesn’t mean you want to spend the rest of your life doing it.” is something he would say, though he got it from Jo. Having failed college, he told his parents he loved them, promptly came out as gay and left home to search for what he wanted in life. What he found was a quaint little bar inside of a mall, a great group of friends and a bit of a crush on a certain stout security guard. He may not be making as much money as a physics researcher like his folks wanted but he’s happy. And in life, that’s all you can ask for really.


The Goth Name:
Roxanne Smith

Likes:
Hardcore music, advocating, noodling on guitar, a good depressing book

Bio:
If you hate the government, bubblegum pop music or any general rays of sunshine, you’d probably get along just fine with Roxanne. She works in a field that could only be described as an unwritten circle of Dante’s inferno: Retail. It’s there that she wears a horrible blue vest with an array of tacky advertising buttons on it, while forced to smile and provide adequate customer service for a seemingly unending stream of customers. Truly, a fresh slice of hell. This begs the question, why on Earth is she friends with the people in her D&D group, especially someone like John? Sometimes the two people you least expect, get along wonderfully. Like Bertha von Suttner and Alfred Nobel, two very different views doesn’t mean a friendship can’t bloom. In this case she appreciates that he respects her views and beliefs despite not sharing all of them, while the same goes for her. However they both do enjoy each other’s company. And sometimes, that’s enough.

The Cool Guy Name:
Yosha

Likes:
?

Bio:
Much of Yosha’s background is shrouded in mystery. In fact, much of Yosha’s present is a mystery too. The few things that are known about him is that he has a vast array of connections, he plays the guitar, he knows how to sing and he has a killer jewfro.

The Lawyer Name:
Jo Calderon

Likes:
Women, alcoholic drinks, easy court cases, women

Bio:
One of John’s longtime friends and voice of reason...sometimes. If there was ever a person born with a 20 as their charisma score, it would be Jo. Having been gifted a silver tongue, he manages to talk his way out of practically anything. He could sell you your own car, have you pay twice as much for it and still have you walk away happy. So it was no surprise to his friends when they found out he wanted to be a lawyer. Though it’s not his passion in life, he does it well. To counter the sometimes soul crushing experiences of his work, he tends to indulge on his two favorite vices. Women and alcohol, in that order. He’s a bit of a ladies man, not hesitating to engage with most or any women in his general vicinity. Alcohol is typically consumed responsibly, though he tends to let loose on social occasions and if there’s a designated driver present. Jo may sometimes be cold, crass and tactless but he means well.

The Florist Name:
Irene Brown

Likes:
Flowers, traditional Latin music, dancing, singing, making people happy, trying to get her son to settle down

Bio:
Irene comes from a long line of performers in her family. At a young age, she and her brothers would travel around their home country, playing music and singing at various gigs. She bumped into Luis and on a whim they eloped and ran away to America to start a new life together. Unfortunately, it quickly became clear that Luis was only interested in performing and less interested in raising a family. Which became problematic since fairly soon after their big move to America, John was born. Luis was always away performing at various gigs and schmoozing with local celebrities while she stayed on their touring Volkswagen Microbus, taking care of baby John. Eventually she decided that enough was enough and promptly filed for divorce. Luis bought her a home that used to be a store and told her she could live there as long as she wanted. The rest as they say, is history.

The Entertainer Name:
Luis Velasquez

Likes:
Performing, audience adoration, popularity

Bio:
Selfish, self centered, arrogant, oblivious to everything that doesn’t revolve around him. These are all perfect descriptions of Luis’ character. For as long as he can remember, he’s always looked out for himself. The concept of being mindful of others escapes him. He typically acts the way he does not because of malice but because he just doesn’t know any better. It’s essentially how he was raised. Regardless, it doesn’t excuse his often tasteless actions. Late into their relationship, Irene found herself delivering patented dope slaps to the back of his head on a fairly regular basis.
