Timothy’s wife, high strung, opinionated, not afraid to use sarcasm as a weapon, a restless sleeper, pent up and frustrated in her marriage. "BLEEDING HEART"
Sloane’s husband, earnest, a go getter, confident in his opinions, maybe a bit naïve about consequences but mostly a good guy, also a foodie. "BLEEDING HEART"
Not actually old, all muscle and bone, bare feet, tattered clothing, with a blindfold of scrap; he’s bearded, dirty, bloody, & holding a large knife. "BLEEDING HEART"
Something of a snooty femme fatale, but also rich beyond measure; this fact does not stop her from being a rampant kleptomaniac. "BLEEDING HEART"
A younger man, Sloane’s brother, he’s a chipper poster child for wanderlust and all that’s romantic about taking zero responsibility for life decisions. "BLEEDING HEART"
