Wade Dawson - Mid-20s (25), any
ethnicity, female. Wade Dawson is cocky and handsome. She's on a strict diet
of anti-psychotics to combat her violent outbursts and internal rage that
Wade also self-medicates with sex of the intense, indiscreet variety. Her
internal struggle is enough to almost break your heart until you remember
how easily she could break you...
Graciele Martinez - Late 20s, Latina or African American. Graciela
Martinez is a known gang leader with a history of drugs, robbery, assault
you name it. Her compadres on the street might look up to her as a mother
but Graciela reserves her true mothering instincts for her two young
children at home whom she loves deeply and would do anything to protect...
Valentina Galindo - Late 30s, any ethnicity. Valentina Galindo
is a character of mythical proportions. Some would tell you she's a hardened
gangster who's ordered more murders than all her male counterparts put
together. Others would testify she's a community activist and organizer and
certainly her humble appearance, evident intelligence and articulate manner
would vouch for the same...
Margaret Elder - Late 30s or early 40s, African American or
Caucasian. Margaret Elder is full of a deep seeded, perhaps ruthless,
ambition that has allowed her to excel in life and career, far ahead of her
peers and even her superiors. Bitingly sarcastic at times, Elder is a hard
ass, tough-as-nails woman and by no means a feminist. But even Elder's
roughest edges can't entirely hide her nascent good looks and attractive
Helen Miller - Early 40s, Caucasian. Helen Miller is seemingly no
nonsense and undramatic, leaving her hard to read. Despite her sometimes
affectless manner, Miller is a woman of conscience who cares about things
like justice, dignity and humanity. Where others might tow the line, Miller
is willing to go against the status quo to set things right...
Sheri Silva - Mid 30s to early 40s, Latina or Caucasian. Sheri Silva
is of a weathered prettiness, delicate and prepossessing - the kind to make
friends fast. Flirtatious (though she'd never admit it) and manipulative to
the core, she works hard to make relationships work for her...
Tootsie Freed - Late 20s, Caucasian. Tootsie is wiry and thin from a
diet of drugs that have left her clingy and needy to both illicit substances
and interdependent relationships. She may appear reticent and withdrawn in
public, but she knows far more about who's who and what's up than you'd
think. Underneath, Tootsie is fiercely possessive and will fight you to the
death if you cross her...
