[JOHN DANIELS] Male / Lead / Caucasian / 28 – 40
Description: John is in his mid to late 30’s and is a very shy, timid & hard working entry-level worker. He’s very anti-social and stays to himself. He stays alone in a one bedroom apartment and has no girlfriend, no kids and lives a pretty born life. He goes to work, comes home, watch a little television and paints. He works for a computer programming company as a programming associate. He does all the work for the manager of the branch, but the manager takes all the credit for his work. John is very passive and lets people run over him. After he discovers a brutal murder, his life instantly changes and things begin to look up for him….BUT only as long as he keeps his secret.
[MARLENE COLFAX] Female / Lead / Caucasian / 25 – 35
Description: Marlene is a very beautiful, sexy and cool woman. The scary part is Marlene is actually a demon sent down by the devil to take John’s mind off of what he seen.

Marlene must know how to speak either French or Italian **(If you don’t know how to speak either languages, don’t panic. She only has a few lines speaking French or Italian, so if you’re willing to learn, please submit)** She instantly steals John’s heart and he falls in love with her.
