CAST OF CHARACTERS
Some characters are subject to double role and ALL are able to gender bend.

BATMAN – MALE (20S/30S)
Obviously not the real Dark Knight but instead a smart-ass loud mouth jerk who still owes me $25.75.

COOK – MALE (30S/50S)
Here’s a guy who’s seen a thing or two in his day. Notanymore, since the day he started wearing an eye-patch. So mysterious and inquisitive.

DYLAN – MALE/FEMALE (18-20S) Dylan is cool. He’ll hook you up if you’re looking.

JONATHAN J. JOHNSON – MALE (20S/30S)
On his first day for a job he didn’t want, single, alone,
miserable, no one pays him any respect, and he’s had about enough. As soon as he’s done building his new minecraft palace and takes care of his peace lily, he’ll do something but probably nothing.

KEVIN MALONE – MALE (20S/60S)
To hell with this stuck up jerk. He thinks he’s all that but he isn’t. Fuck Kevin. Kevin is a jerk.

Fear and Loathing in the Moon.

PRIVATE UTAH – MALE (30S/40S)
