CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

Hawk Johansen, 27
The main character. Should be that anti-social miscreant that you knew in high school that was smart but troubled and lazy. Now, that laziness has turned into atrophy. Self aware enough now to realize he needs to do something about it. A good guy that’s just made some really bad life choices and now that he’s on track just wants everything completely turned around right away.

Bowie Johansen, 25
The manic younger brother of Hawk. He’s followed his older brother all his life and has done nothing more than smoke pot for his entire life. Enter a dark and mysterious Spanish woman and his manic energy of staying safe and wanting to impress her makes him almost bipolar in his bravery and fear.

Isabelle, 27
She’s the golden girl that everyone dreams of. The write songs about her. The write movies about her (see Say Anything…, (500) Days of Summer, et. al.). See Manic Pixie Dream Girl on wikipedia for more. But this is the reality of the situation. As much as she’s the golden girl she’s broken down as the pressure was way too much for her to take.

Sasha, 22
Sasha is nothing but trouble. That may not be a bad thing. Before our story she was kicked out of a University in Spain. As punishment she’s been sent to the US to finish out her college education by her mother and father. Rebel at heart she’s fucked, fought and drank more than probably most men in her age group. When she meets Bowie something intrigues her.
 
Derrick Ludlow, 27
Mr. Ludlow is the guy everyone hates. He’s never really had to work for anything. He’s been given everything since birth. His gentile good looks and used car sales man/Tom Cruise smile has paid his way through some of the more horrendous behavior displayed by males in society.
