COLIN - Mid 40s
Colin is a stout forty something year old with glasses that belong in 1985. He has a mind like a razor, sharp and strong. He has just been released from prison after serving four years for a crime he didn't commit. Seldom one to lose his temper, Colin is introverted in his demeanor and would rather watch from afar than get involved with a situation.
MARGARET - 70 to 75 years of age
Maggie is in her seventies, a chronic smoker who takes pills daily to ward off Alzheimer's now. Her husband, Ray, passed away two years ago while Colin was in jail. Her house is a home of clutter and hoarding but she is quite content in her late term life.
PHILLIP - Mid 40s
Phil is an old high school friend and neighbor who grew up with Colin. He stuck around the town after graduation and got married, had 3 kids, and is a born again Christian. He is the mall manager of the only mega-mall in the county. His demeanor is such that he always seems to be thinking about something else when he talks to people.
MINDY - 35 - 40 years of age
Mindy is a strong and assertive 30 something woman who had to grab a work life hard when her boyfriend left her during her third term pregnancy. Six years later, she holds down two jobs and makes no time for herself anymore. Never one to wear makeup, she is quick to give her opinion on matters, but has a deep sense of integrity and honor. Her daughter is her life now and she makes it the best she can for Tess.
TESS - 6 - 8 years of age
Tess is book smart and witty for such a young age. She is well beyond her years in wisdom, and is much like her mom in many ways. And although she pretends that Christmas isn't that exciting, she can't help but show her joy on Christmas Eve.
ROBERT - 50 to 60 years of age
Robert is the head of security at the mall, which is really only him. He's in his fifties and this is his second career. He had retired from driving trucks and rigs for government contractors after 24 years, and decided he wasn't ready to call it quits. He is a social person and enjoys being around the mall and seeing all the people.
