[Rob] [Gender: Male] [Ethnicity: Caucasian] [Age: 35-40]
A fixture at the local dive bar in this rural town, Rob takes any opportunity to spout whatever offensive thoughts cross his mind. Sometimes this helps him win equally lewd friends – sometimes it leads to fights. On this particular night, he finds Raveena outside the bar and teases her with xenophobic slurs. When she pushes back, he becomes aggressive.

[Gale] [Gender: Female] [Ethnicity: Caucasian] [Age: 45-55]
Gale’s tough-love keeps her convenience store staff in line. Sometimes she knows when people are untrustworthy and she makes no attempt to hide it. When Raveena comes in, disheveled and searching for sleeping pills, Gale treats her like one of the mice who occasionally sneak into the store. But she does it all behind the mask of her southern manners.
