BEN - a young man, managing to look innocent and pretty together in spite of deep delusional psychosis and a crippling unrequited love. He covers well until he can’t. Barefoot, bed‐head, in jeans and a v‐neck white t‐shirt.
JACK - a young man, pretty, cocky, thinks he knows better, but without of place and a little too willing to believe; thus, starting to see things, but fighting it. In a fitted dark polo shirt & tight jeans, dressed for a date.
WOLF - a man, a bit scruffy, a guy’s guy. Casual, amiable, charm with hint of sorrow. But it’s more in what he says not how he says it. In a tight, graphic print t‐shirt & Levis sporting a dark blue bandana in his back left pocket.
