CharacterRole Ages
BethanyA new woman. Bright, strong, independent, beautiful. But she's a locked vault, living life only for tomorrow. Unwilling to face her past; when it comes back to haunt her, she is unprepared to deal with it. Dependency - 10, self esteem - 0approx. 20-30
FloydBeth's Fiancee. The tortoise. Stable. Safe. Durable. Excitement and adventure are things he's read about in books. But he loves Bethany, and when that is threatened he is going to break out of his shell. Even if it kills him.approx. 20-30
ChanceChance: Beth's first husband. The Hare. Wild and free. Living fast and hard. Adventure was his middle name. He loves Beth as well and he's not about to let a little thing like his own death keep him from spending the rest of their life together. Not at any cost. Any.approx. 20-30
CrystalFlamboyant with a capital FLAM. Actually with a capital BOYANT as well. Cigar-chomping, vodka swilling kook, squeezing the life out of each and every moment. A psychic with a sarcastic edge that's Wilkenson sharp. But there's a darkness behind that party girl facade.approx. 20-30
