MILO MAZOWSKI – Recently fired Campus Security guard at Deans College. Has an unlimited memory. Literally. Also has a deep emotional well…that he has no capacity to process without help. Late 20’s/Early 30’s, Male.
DR. G.H. HULIE – Head of the Psychology Department at Deans College. Easily excited by intellectual ideas. Extremely articulate. Tries his best not to be pretentious…doesn’t always succeed. 40’s/50’s, Male.
SAMANTHA RILEY – Junior at Deans College. Super smart, grade obsessed, neurotically ambitious. Like Milo, her emotional development has taken a backseat to her other pursuits. Early 20’s, Female.
JOEY GIAMANI – A Campus Security guard at Deans College. Milo’s friend and protector. His toughness masks his vulnerability. Late 20’s/early 30’s, Male.
GINA GIAMANI – Owner of the Blind Eagle - a local dive bar where the sports-obsessed working class and the scene-obsessed Deans College kids interact. Joey’s sister. She’s tough, like Joey, but way more in touch with her feelings. 30’s, Female.
TITO DAVIS – Bouncer at the Blind Eagle. Brighter than he lets on. Very conniving, very enthusiastic, and more often than not, very stoned. 30’s/40’s, Male.
