CHARACTERS

Colin: New in town. Smart but easily frazzled, stubborn and questions everything.

Narrator: A witty know-it-all who takes everything literally and lacks social skills (as no one can see or hear her).

Mason: The son of the wealthiest man in town. He is independent, passionate, and determined.

Paige: Mason's girlfriend. Gentle, good-hearted, honest, and down-to-earth.

Wes: Mason's best friend. He is blunt and tactless.

Eva: Mason's cheerful, optimistic ex-girlfriend. She is even more tactless than Wes, and not very bright.

Iris: The town psychic. She can only speak when asked a question, and the only thing she can say is the answer to that question.

Roland: Mason's cold, distant father.

Magda: A perpetually drunk and horny cougar.

Calliope: A young woman whose forbidden love led to disaster centuries ago. Now eerie and inhuman, she resides, unseen and unknown, within the town.
