(Principal) Aphrodite [Female] - 25-40's. Manipulative and supremely cunning. Arrogant in nature, and extremely vindictive. Aphrodite has found her way into and above most difficult situations.

(Principal) Athena [Female] - 25-35's. Athena is a proud strong woman. Being fiercely independent, she must learn to let her guard down and trust other people’s judgement or advice. She is very honorable and loyal, yet slightly rebellious in nature, which comes off as arrogant.

(Supporting) Themis [Female] - 35-50's. Honor and judgement. Themis, being the right hand to Zeus, is responsible for conducting both. Incredibly strong willed, physically and mentally. Themis is confident, and courageous. She stands for justice at all costs.

(Principal) Connor [Male] - 18-30's. A drifter and hustler. Connor is a noble thief. Having grown up in harsh conditions, Connor learned to fend for himself at a very young age. While he still has many flaws, there’s a spark of great potential within him. Kind hearted, and a leader when needed.

(Supporting) Blake [Male] - 18-30's. A drifter and hustler. Blake is angry at the world. He conceals his depression behind bursts of anger. Blake deals with thoughts of suicide, but doesn’t share them. He dreams of martyrdom. He’s become rather apathetic towards most of the world other than the ones he cares for.
