CHARACTERS

[JASIRI]
(22), Black, extremely strong, yet that strength is dwarfed by her alluring beauty. She is the greatest warrior of her generation, intended to take her mother’s place as the leader of the Warriors. She seeks a way to serve her people, bucking the authority of her mother and the Founding Fathers.

 

[AJANI]
(23) Black, athletic and Sexiest-Man-Alive handsome, he is the son of the most powerful Senator, intended to be the heir to such political power, he finds more interest in his books and in the truths of history. A dreamer, he seeks a better way of life than that prescribed by the Founding Father’s society.

 

[ASHA]
(late 70s) Black, untouched by wrinkles, she is a Shaman with great foresight. She guides Jasiri towards her destiny, while ostensibly serving the Founding Fathers as an oracle and advisor. Able to shift dimensions, she has come here to serve the goodness of humanity.

 

[KUONA]
(60s) Black, Wilt Chamberlain with a Buddha-belly, as a Shaman, he serves as Ajani’s mentor, guiding him to uncover the truth about the Founding Fathers. A dimension shifting being, he works to uplift humanity for the greatest good.

 

[FATHER BOUCHER]
(seems 40s) White, his people were once butchers and made vast wealth, going into politics and business (imagine him as Vito Corleone’s grandson), yet he still carries some sense of inferiority from those roots. Behind the scenes, he is doing his own thing, at odds with the Founding Father’s aims.

[FATHER CUACUAS]

(seems 50s) Native, made his money selling rights to natural resources and using that to maintain his nation’s sovereignty, which alienated him from his people. A strong, silent type, he leads the Founding Fathers.

​[FATHER MBAYA]
(seems 50s) Black, of nebulous military background, a dyspeptic sort, stronger and meaner than any of his fellows, yet lacks the flexibility and respect to become the head of the Founding Fathers..

 

[MAGNUS]
(50) Black, exuding power, he leads the Senators and cultivates his son, Ajani to take his place. He does not care to know what the Founding Fathers are really up to, as long as he can keep doing good, and keeping power where it belongs with his family.

 

[LENNA]
(late 40s) Black, younger than she appears, she leads the Warriors, powerful and sure in her position. She is proud of her daughter, Jasiri, and works to train her into the greatest warrior society has known.

[[NTHANDA]
(late 40s) Black, a kind woman who resides at the heart of her family. She is as strong and wise, as she is gentle and cares a great deal for her son, Ajani, seeking to see him grow in his own way.

 

[THE BEAST]
(??) A genetic experiment, long lived and up to his own devices, testing human souls. He has a strange sense of integrity. A shapeshifter, he wears many faces.

 

[DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN]
(80s) Asian, a sage with a dry wit and an intentional inscrutability. He seeks to push Ajani towards facing his fears.
