THE SPY played by: ian somerhalder SON
CARTER acts like just a normal member of the sons. He pitches in whenever he can and helps out with what he's able to.

RELIGIOUS LEADER played by: paul bettany SON
Especially in times like today, people are in need of some sort of support, and maybe even a little ray of hope. This is where AGOSTINO comes in.

LEADER OF THE DAUGHTERS played by: lena headey DAUGHTER

She is a Maria-in-training, but her main task is to infiltrate Ark radio and find out where the announcements have been coming from.
the historian played by: alison brie DAUGHTER
BRIE graduated as a young history major. You could say that it was a passion of hers, and the passion didn't die down after the world had ended. The leader of the daughters spoke with her and told her about how they were taking part in something that would be history in the making.

HUNTER REID serves as the eyes and ears of the dust runners with what's happening inside the walls of the daughters.

KAMIKAZE FIGHTER played by: norman reedus DUST RUNNER
Hot-tempered and war-freak PENIKETT is often found in the heat of battle. He's an impulsive fighter, relying heavily on gut feel and impulse rather than whatever commands or strategies have been planned. His recklessness often gets him and other dust runners into trouble.
THE COMMANDER played by: maggie Q MARIA

SECOND-IN-COMMAND played by: milla jovovich MARIA
A rather opposite to her superior, JOVOVICH has some issues with the lack of discipline and force shown to the Maria. She doesn't approve of the methods of her commander and believes that a firmer hand should be taken. Sometimes, she bypasses her superior and makes calls based on what she feels is right.
THE TEMPTRESS played by: lyndsy fonseca MARIA
The best at finding out men's one true weakness: sex. LORELAI RIMES is very sly and manipulative, possibly due to her youthful features, making her seem like a completely underestimated enemy.

FORMER SON played by: robert downey jr FORSAKEN
ROLAND SHAW was once part of the sons, but later on believed that what the sons were fighting for was a cause that he didn't believe in.

UNDERGROUND DEALER played by: barbara palvin FORSAKEN
MARIELLE MOREAUX is the official unofficial source of everything you need. She isn't the normal kind of vendor, offering more than just the basic supplies needed for living. Her wares are often delicate in nature and are taboo from both the encampments, but her services are undeniably helpful. She chooses no customers, wherever you're from, but her prices often tilt in the directions of favoritism.
THE LOCATOR played by: james marsden FORSAKEN
Are you looking for a long lost relative or perhaps a maria wondering if your son is still alive? MARSDEN helps people locate other people or even deliver messages to them, earnestly trying to help whoever comes to him in finding and connecting lost connections. He is a neutral force who will help anyone regardless of their affiliation.
RADIO DJ played by: felicia day FORSAKEN
DAY, a graduate from electronics and communications engineer, along with her partner, started up Ark Radio. The station is a forsaken modus operandi that broadcasts updates happening all over the city and the desert, allowing both sons and daughters to know things happening on both sides. Her main goal is to unite both factions and rebuild the world together, male and female joining forces finally.
Note: Due to the special role this character has within the context of the RP, applications for this character will be judged at a stricter level than usual.

THE RELUCTANT SOLDIER played by: kristen bell MARIA
BELL woke up one day and just found herself caught in the middle of all the action, working for the daughters as a maria. She tends to act tough and act like she knows what she's doing but deep inside, she's afraid and she just really caught in the wrong crowd. She's got a deep sense of remorse but she makes sure to keep all of that to herself to avoid looking weak.
THE FARMER played by: alan tudyk FORSAKEN
With the constant decline of resources, TUDYK strives to make living more sustainable. He's started a small farm in paradise falls, growing his own crops and providing food for the forsaken residents. He's a good guy, always more than willing to share what it is that he has.
