Aaron starts out as an empathetic young man that has an annoying friend. As the story progresses, his fear and paranoia grow. He sees his friend as a hostile enemy and soon becomes unbearable. Aaron has an imaginative mind. It darkens and reflects how Aaron’s mindset turns unhealthy. In reality, Aaron is cowardice and non-confrontational. He thinks too much and does too little. Aaron is acquiescent. His lack of critical thinking leads to his own tragedy.
Jason is Aaron’s close friend. Jason does not know how to express his emotion to others as well. Instead of being submissive, Jason hides his affection to others with a tough surface. He is bad at empathizing with other people and hurtful words comes out of his mouth without a thought. Deep down, Jason is a caring and thoughtful person. He tries to make others happy without expressing his true emotion.
Sean is an imaginary friend in Aaron’s mind. His/her lines are comments from the internet. His/her voice can either be cold and robotic or direct and misleading.
