Presently, he spends most of his time hanging out at the gym, hitting on women and telling stories of his “glory days”. He is out of shape and divorced, which is a result of his constant drinking.

A 17 year old foreign exchange student from _____________. He is extremely handsome and instantly became the Ladies Man of the school. He is a part of a one- year cultural exchange program.

Lately, he’s gotten in trouble for being caught for “inappropriate fraternization” with the entire cheerleading team and the brass section of the school band.
MOTIVE: Principal Samson has informed him that he is canceling the Foreign Exchange Student program, due to it being a “homeland security risk”.
ARTHUR FRANKLIN – [GENDER: MALE OR FEMALE] [AGE: 25-40] [RACE: ANY]
A 34 year old, overworked, underpaid US History Teacher and Mock Trial Team Coach. He is passionate about History and tries to get his students to care by using creative techniques, such as costumes and songs. Despite his commitment, he is seen as a joke by his students. He has a difficult time asserting authority in his classroom and with his colleagues. He is often run over by others because he is afraid to speak up for himself. He had dreams of being a detective, but he couldn’t pass the test to get into the Police Academy – failing 17 times.
MOTIVE: Principal Samson informs him that he is cutting the Mock Trial Team – which is extremely important to Arthur. When Principal Samson is murdered, Arthur sees this as his chance to investigate a real case. He wants to prove himself and earn some respect.
PRINCIPAL VINCENT SAMSON – [GENDER: MALE ] [AGE: 25-40] [RACE: ANY]
An overly strict, militant, relentless high school principal obsessed with completing his “mission” to “claim back the school”. He is ex-military and applies his regimented training to all areas of his life. He joined the Marines when he was 18 years old, but was released just after three years due to uncertainty about his mental state. He has no wife or children because he prefers to go through life with the “bare essentials”. His views on education are simple, but extremely inappropriate: “complete the mission or die”. He believes school is a place where soldiers receive training for life. He says there is no room for “bows and ribbons” such as clubs, proms or field trips. He is feared and despised by the students and the teachers. As a result, he is unexpectedly murdered the night of the prom.
