Cora: Sweet and trusting waitress. Faces obstacles with good-natured strength and logic.

Aphrodite: Playfully bitchy goddess.

Adam: College professor and Dean’s best friend. Easily manipulated/swayed, and takes things very seriously.

Heather: Adam’s girlfriend of 10 years. Passionate and dramatic.

Lynn: Owner of the coffeeshop. Has low self-esteem and is a bit clueless, but cheerful and light-hearted.

Carter: Lynn’s best friend. Calculating schemer, but with good intent.

Zoe: Dean's little sister. Meek, softspoken, and a little awkward.

Jordan: Dean's ex-girlfriend. Blunt, honest, and very sure of herself.

Isabel: One of Adam’s students. Very smart, easily irritated overachiever.

Gavin: Another of Adam’s students. Arrogant, playful smart-ass.
