Blaise’s friend. He is quickly angered by anything around him. Mostly Dan annoys him with his smart remarks about anything Adam does. He likes his friends regardless of his issues with them.
Blaise’s friend. Has a sarcastic personality. Dan is usually flooding his friends with his “smartass” remarks and his viewpoints on life piss off Adam every time they meet.
Blaise’s friend. Acts like the “cool” one. He likes talking back to teachers and believes that being a high school dropout is cool because one of his favorite TV show character was one.
She should serve as a clichéd love interest but instead she takes it to a new level with her rebellious and sarcastic personality. She seems to understand Blaise’s struggles and is committed to leading him out of the school.
