Character Descriptions:

Brent Smith is a 38 year old water biologist / environmentalist who studied at USC / Los Angeles and graduated with a Masters degree in Environmental Studies. Brent, African American, lives alone in his household in Eagle Rock, Los Angeles and works for the Environmental Monitoring Department, for the City of Los Angeles; his office is based at the Hyperion Water Treatment Plant. He is part of 5 person team working on controlling the water quality as well as monitoring the social impact of the river for communities along the river. Brent is a very gentle and quiet person. Due to his thorough research methodologies, he is well respected among his colleagues and supervisor. Thus he has more freedom to conduct his research in the field. Brent’s retired parents live close to the banks of the Los Angeles River/ Compton Creek in Compton, a suburban area in South Los Angeles, known for its segregated African American communities in the 1960. Here is where Brent grew up and interacted with the river when he was a child. The relationship between Brent and his parents is honest, respectful and gentle. Most of the time they only communicate via phone, but some times Brent visits the family’s house.

Supporting role

Jill Selmour, in her early thirties, is a close friend of Brent and usually goes on trips with him. She engages herself sometimes in environmentalist activities, more so since she has lost her teaching job 2 months ago at a public school due to California State’s budget crisis. Jill teaches 6-8 graders in biology and math.

Supporting role

Nancy Ming is a supervising chemist employed by the Environmental Monitoring Department, City of Los Angeles and supervises a team of 5 biologists and environmentalists.

Nancy is a gentle Asian American woman in her mid thirties and lives alone in Westside of Los Angeles. She is interested in having some sort of relationship with Brent, as she tries to socialize with him outside of work.
