Slim (male; 18) – A stranger to his peers, he is an odd one among the group because of his flamboyant and feminine nature. He finds himself (besides Livy) the only normal being in the midst of chaotic, psychotic, and wicked people.
Cloe (female; 16) – Once she sees Slim its love at first sight and she becomes completely obsessed with Slim. She’ll do nearly anything to make sure he loves her the way she loves him, even if she has to threaten him. Although both she and her brother annoy one another they still get along better than most siblings. She and her brother hold Original Sin blood.
Shyia (female; 17) – After a traumatic event she has become merciless and adopts the belief that God has tasked her with eradicating the weak from the Earth. When Slim tries to befriend her only problems will arise. She holds Original Sin blood.
Sade (female; 17) – She hates Cloe’s brother as he has killed all of her friends except one. Through the years she has worked hard to become strong enough to kill him yet through this hate the two develop attraction. She holds Original Sin blood.
Livy (female; 15) – A Christian girl and Sade’s friend. Unlike most she abides by her morals and doesn’t agree with the actions of the Enlightened Program nor her peers. Many believe that God is always by her side as she has a high chance of dying around this group of Enlightened Ones.
Rower (male; 15) – He goes along with the flow. He’s a follower.
Carson (male; 17) – Cloe’s brother’s friend who sticks close by Shyia and considers himself more of an observer at times. At other times when beholding Original Sin strength he aspires to beat someone with Original Sin blood.
Zac (male; 16) – An Enlightened One who looks forward to serving his purpose in the Enlightened Program. When faced with someone who’s predicted to outmatch him he merely smiles at the odds.
Daniel (male; 19) – A bloodthirsty teenager who shares Shyia’s ideas and also beliefs that one should indulge themselves in their enemy’s pain and suffering. He hates Slim.
