Walt is 35 years old and has a rugged look to him with dark hair, light eyes and a broad, strong build to his body. Walt is a hot blooded, impulsive man who acts quickly and violently when his family is threatened. Given up by his mother at birth and an orphanage runaway, he was taken in by Bernie Calloway. Walt grew up, and eventually fell in love with Bernice, and when she’s been wronged or threatened, Walt stops at nothing for retribution. Revenge consumes him.

Bernice is Walt’s wife. She is 35 and is a hard, but beautiful woman with an addictive personality. Walt is the first thing she’s been addicted to that she hasn’t had to shoot, snort, or swallow. She has a daughter, Abbey, with Walt. She lives for her daughter and tries to shield her from the life she’s tried to put behind her.

Grant is a young man that doesn’t let anyone into his personal life for fear of losing them. He’s only 19 and is trying to prove he’s more than just a street thug. His charm and good looks have kept him out of as much trouble as they’ve gotten him into. Tall, clean cut, with deep dark eyes; he works alone, doing odd jobs for shadowy clients and a cut of the take. He feels defined by the moment he watched his father die and wants nothing more than justice for the man that killed him.

Otto is an undercover cop with only 2 speaking lines and 1 action scene.

Duke is a contact of Grant’s in town who provides him with information. He has 1 scene.
