The Dean’s right (and left) hand woman. Dedicated to the Dean, no matter how zany his ideas are. She’s been with the school from the beginningand handles all accounting and administration needs of the school.

First time off of the reservation, passion is performing. Motivation to go to school of the arts is to get his own people’s culture out into the world and not just get more of the same into himself.

Has been by the Dean’s side since he graduated in the first class of the college. Handles all the physical needs of the campus and is often blamed when something breaks, and never praised when something goes well. He takes care of his health, helpful, but keeps his distance from the students so he doesn’t get distracted from his ever growing to do list.
