CHARACTERS

SKYE MACKENNA (Lauren Steinmeyer) - The current name for a young woman in her early 20’s who has been moved around the US all her life, hiding from dangers never truly explained to her. When she was twelve years old, her mother was murdered, and because Skye blames herself (and because of the danger she knows she is in), Skye begins to take classes on self defense and finds a love for sword work. However, due to moving around a lot and her hesitation in trusting others, she's never had a lot of friends, is a bit awkward, and can tend to be a bit rash and blunt when not opting for staying withdrawn. She is also a bit of a bookworm, loves cats, and has now moved to New York to figure who killed her mother, and take her revenge.

MADISON PARK (Kara Addington) - A woman in her early 20’s who went to college with Skye MacKenna and has moved to New York City to become an actress. While pursuing her dream, she works for a temp agency. She is a bit larger than life, tends to learn things the hard way, wears her heart on her sleeve, and would do anything for her friends. She is part witch.

KYLE LAWSON (Josh Fielden) - A young man living on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. He is part witch and part FAE. He moved to New York from Tennessee to study music. He graduated but didn’t go home. Instead, he stayed, in hopes to form a successful band. He is single, fun-loving, affectionate, and awkward at times. He is the half brother to Madison Park and his roommates with Nicolai Jordan and Jillian Murphy.

DJ PHAEDRA (Sara Hogrefe) - Blonde, blue eyed woman in her late 20's/early 30's and part of the goth/industrial scene and friends with Joelle and the rest of the gang. She DJ’s a lot of the club nights and is a social butterfly in the nicest sense of the word. She isn’t much for getting her hands dirty both physically or metaphorically, but she’s sweet, sincere, and cares about her friends a lot. She is leary of Skye to begin with, but she warms up to her more than some.

AMARA RAINE (Kelly Driscoll) - A beautiful Vampire woman who is knows for her mean streak. Often referred to as a “bitch,” she just has a different set of rules she plays by. She is a tomboy, has military training, was once a drug addict before she was turned, prefers pants to wearing a skirt, and if she had her way, no pants at all. She is in a relationship with Silas Winters that Facebook would call, “It’s Complicated.” She works nights at a rehab center.

SILAS WINTERS (Andrew Rogers) - An old, yet gorgeous, Vampire man who is known for putting his foot in his mouth often due to not always thinking before he speaks or acts. He is stylish, well dressed, works as a model for money, is wealthy, has a thing for clothes, is rather vain, prides himself in his excellent hair, and couldn’t stay faithful to one woman if his life depended on it. Yet, though he has many faults, he is trustworthy and dependable when it comes to work/business. He is currently in a “relationship” with Amara Raine and works for Prince Cillian Black, the Vampire Prince of Manhattan.
