Casting

4m, 2f

Adbot 579- Earnest, generous, and easy to strike up a conversation with. He seems driven by a desire to help others.

Victoria Anders- Almost maternally protective of Adbot 579, she can let this protectiveness overcome her in heated moments. 

Daniel Pikeman- wise-cracking, rather callous and in love with the sound of his own voice.

Judge Dunbar- Formal. Tries to keep the proceedings professional. 

Doctor Russel- Very awkward, has difficulty socializing. He is driven by curiosity and a desire to report his findings. 

Adbot X-58- Condescending, uncaring, and excessively posh.
