Male, Asian-American , 37. Cool-headed, sensible, organized, low-key but reliable. Diplomat of the group.
Female, Asian-American, 40. Self-described "angry" woman. Can be hot-tempered and with a biting humor and brusque presence but for the occasion has, like Landon, become a calm, level-headed organizer, helping to steer things behind the scenes.
Female, Asian-American, 34. Talented actress trying to tamp down raw emotions from recent career setbacks. Struggling between trying to manage her vulnerability so that she can perform for the "event" and letting her insecurities get the better of her.
Male, Asian-American, 42. Talented actor and "divo" of the group whose articulateness, intelligence, ability to excel in his capacity as spokesperson for the group often needs to be massaged by validation and sometimes controlled by confrontation.
Female, Non-Asian-American, 45. Friend of Landon. A professional "conflicts consultant". A calming presence, intelligent, capable, utterly professional.
