CHRIS

  • Full name: Christopher (bearing Christ - irony) Valentino (strong, healthy)
  • Occupation: Quality/Office Supervisor
  • Salary: $37,000/year
  • Education: Bachelors Degree in Business
  • Family: Father (deceased - Cop who was shot in robbery or something), Mother (living w/ Munchausen Syndrome), Older Brother (not close, Left home early), Grandparents (deceased)
  • Connections: Best Friend = Paul Jackson
  • Behavior: Hard on people at work, but not a jerk. Easy to get along with, but doesn't like emotional connections, probably due to the loss of family, especially his dad. He tells the truth when he does talk, bu treally the only person he's open with is PAUL. He's amusing around PAUL and more reserved around others.
  • Other Stuff: PAUL and him were friends before his dad died. After the death of his father, Paul was really the only person that stayed with him, making their relationship especially close, and making PAUL's death that much unbearable. It will be PAUL's death that pushes (PHIL) over the edge.
  • Internal Conflicts: Angry he's not getting promoted, but isn't doing anything about it. Really likes one of his co-workers, but too shy to ask her out. hates mom because of her disease/syndrome, and kinda blames her for his father's death.
  • External Conflicts: Killing aliens and trouble paying bills.
  • Clothing:
    • At work: Corporate Casual
    • At home: T-shirts/shorts.
  • Ultimate Want: To Survive. (which he may achieve)

PAUL

  • Full name: Paul Jackson
  • Occupation: IT Guy
  • Salary: $45,000/year
  • Education: Bachelors Degree in Information Sciences
  • Family: Parents (both living and well), Younger Sister (very close)
  • Connections: Best Friend = (PHIL), lost of other friend though. Has girlfriend named Sharah (relationship is so-so, but also just kinda staring off)
  • Behavior: Friendly, "funny", Mostly an open book. Out going and compulsively caring.
  • Internal Conflicts: (these shouldn't be too complex as PAUL is a rather simple character) not sure if he wants to commit to Sarah. Doesn't know if getting (PHIL) to talk to him about personal stuff helps or hurts (PHIL)
  • Clothing:
    • At work: Polo/Khakis
    • At home: Vintage rock T-shirts/Jeans
  • Ultimate Want: To have a family, keep his job. (once again. Not too complex a character, but shows that he's thinking beyond survival and the life after it.) (He will not achieve this)

THOMAS

  • Full name: Dr. Thomas Mitchells
  • Occupation: Medical Doctor
  • Salary: $75,000/year
  • Education: Doctorate of Medicine
  • Family: Parents (deceased), Brother (not close, but faiths are intertwined, until one dies of course), Wife (Died at child birth due to complications), Son (Died at child birth due to complications)
  • Connections: None
  • Behavior: Jerk due to wife's death. Lost all faith in God and humanity. Doesn't really care about anyone. Very angry at world and God.
  • Other Stuff:
    • Don't want this guy to become Dr. Greg House. House is a Jerk because he's arrogant and thinks he's better than everyone else. Dr. Mitchells hates humanity stemmed fromhis wife and child's death. While house cares, Mitchells legitimately does not, so his jerk qualities should be fundamentally different from House's
    • Forced into companionship with (PHIL)/PAUL, but doesn't usually like it.
    • Internal Conflicts: Blames himself for wife's death. He was delivering the child when complications arose and both his wife and child died. Because of this, he basically hates everyone, which is obviously difficult because he's a doctor.
  • Clothing:
    • At work: Doctor's garb
    • At Home: baseball hat (outside) / Polo / shorts
  • Ultimate Want: For it all to end. His life that is. Doesn't really care about what will happen to humanity. Also, not a suicidal guy either. Although he hates his life, wants it to end, he has a conflicting personality when he hates suicide. (He will achieve his ultimate want.)
