3 roles

DawnFemale20-30 y.o.All ethnicities

A ray of sunshine that lives to her name, Dawn is a happy and hopeful romantic. Perhaps a bit too quick to jump into new things, to fall in love and make big decisions without thinking. She might be a bit naive, and is too keen to give almost anyone a chance. That is not to say she does not have her limits.

BaronMale20-40 y.o.African-American Latino / Hispanic Other Asian Middle Eastern Native American Pacific Islander Indian/South Asian

Baron is a vampire and an immigrant, but he is not a bad guy. He is just trying to make his life work away from home, but is a bit of an awkward introvert which takes a while to really know and makes him a bit suspicious to some. He is vegan by vampire standards, as in he only eats dead meat.

MikeMale20-30 y.o.White / Caucasian

A macho dude type guy. Moving in with his new girlfriend, he is uneasy that his weirdo of a roommate might end up ruining their relationship. Mike is suspicious of Baron, but hesitantly willing to entertain Dawn's attempts to befriend him. He seems harmless enough at first glance, but his suspicions towards his roommate betrays a nastier attitude beneath.
