2m, 2f
THOMAS - Keeper of the Lost and Found, a semi-magical being, boisterous and quirky. He has been at the Lost and Found for one year. 
CLAIRE - Around eighteen. She has lost something close to her heart. Independent by nature, she finds it very hard to ask for help. 
RYLIE - Twenties. Very perky, slightly ditsy, just wants to help. Follows her heart. She lives at the Lost and Found but has a day job somewhere else. Is wearing an engagement ring. 
OWEN - Twenties or thirties. Wise, knowledgeable, follows his head. A master’s student in divinity, he’s on a missionary assignment, though he is not an “in your face”-type Christian. Might have a Bible or wear a cross necklace. 
GEORGE - Doubles as Thomas. Around eighteen, has depression and has recently committed suicide. Dorky and geeky but a big-hearted and lovely person. Key to Claire’s happiness.
