Billy is a quiet, sad little boy who deeply misses his father. He finds it difficult to engage with kids his own age and generally keeps to himself. He plays violent video games as an outlet to his anger and can appear quite scary at times, almost demonic.
We are looking for a young boy of slim build with dark, short hair, light, large eyes, with a sensitive demeanor. He should not be boisterous or demanding but kind and considerate.

Sally comes from a wealthy, upper class background which encouraged her to believe that financial security is key to a happy life. She is a part-time receptionist which allows for her to care for Billy in her spare time who she feels particularly protective of since the death of her husband.
We are looking for someone refined, of slim build, with a clean cut appearance, no tattoos/scars/facial piercings, who understands the importance of good presentation.

Dan is the guy you love to hate. He'll offer you help but will generally leave you in a worse state then before he offered. As a mechanic, he's a hardened man and appears to be quite rough. On the inside, he's actually quite soft and if anything, is just a tad bit dumb.
Dan is a larger man, tall, with big hands. He is a bit of a clutz who doesn't understand how the things he says can affect those around him. He needs to be a bit on the large side, not obese, but slightly heavier than average.
