A-Gay - 20's-30's, Attractive, smooth-talking Harvard Grad who can pass for straight. A clipped uncaring vampire with a great closing argument.
Newbie - 20's, Fresh off the boat queer. Not only knows where the party is; he leads it.
Carson - Black, strong and silent type with hidden cache of bitchisims that could clear a room. Sticks to his morals till they're pried from his fingers.
Peg - "Stone butch", could possibly pass for a man. Spits out words like hand grenades; nearly at the breaking point.
Cliff - Drifter type, drunk on hope with a half pound of amazing weed in his backpack. Would probably be considered bi-sexual.
Roberta - Strong black woman with the tirades to prove it. The most well-dressed and educated Freedom Fighting Hustler you can think of.
Tano - Half of the "Snap Queen Team", Puerto Rican, fiercely territorial, able to cut a bitch in half with a single wit.
Mika - Other half of the "Snap Queen Team". Not as fast as Tano, but probably smarter. Black, tells it like it is, calls it like he sees it; sees the glitz and glamour through tinted shades.
Cop - Good Ol'Boy just trying to do right by the law. Has never questioned the "Right" or "Wrong" behind what he's ordered to do. amazing at the intimidation factor of his job.
Peg's Sister - Has no business being at the riot. Must host a brunch in the morning and has no time for civil rights or emotional outbursts. Secret smoker, terribly driver, has-had-enough.
