Main characters

Alexander “Alex” Warren

Alex is a typical fifteen year old boy. He is however, rather shy and awkward, and often finds himself overlooked or ignored because he is comfortable not being the centre of attention. The only person he really opens up to is his best friend Brad, who is his complete opposite. Despite Alex’s withdrawn nature, he is also a quietly determined individual who will relentlessly pursue what is important to him, or if he believes something to be right despite everybody telling him otherwise.

Bradley “Brad” Hawkins

Brad has all the traits of a natural born leader: he is impulsive, hot-headed, and always doing things without thinking about the consequences…actually he usually just leaves the thinking to someone else entirely.

Brad is a sports fanatic, and captains the high school basketball team. Despite this, he doesn’t fit in very well with the popular kids, instead choosing to hang out with his classmates Alex and Ted, who definitely aren’t very high on the high school social order.

Victoria “Vicky” Carnell

Vicky is a fairly normal, unassuming teenage girl. She doesn’t much care for getting in trouble, and is often found being the voice of reason with her friend Kelly, or quelling her warring brothers and sister. Although she is a bit of a problem solver when it comes to other people, she is very indecisive when it comes to herself.

Terrence “Ted” Sharring

Ted is a friend of Alex and Brad’s, and the first person you go to when you need help with your science homework. Generally putting the rest of the school to shame in terms of test results, Ted is not only smart, but also keeps physically fit, which comes from the combination of his scientist Dad and his athlete Mum.

Samantha “Sam” Lawson

Aspiring socialite and perpetual gossip, Sam surrounds herself with the popular kids in school, doing whatever is necessary to fit in…so naturally she wouldn’t dream of being seen with Alex, Brad and the others. Even though she is a firm believer in the high school social system of popularity, she is also not afraid to confront people and put them in their place if they tread on her toes.

Also likes hats and the colour purple.

Kelly Nelson

Kelly is a bit of an oddball. I mean, most of the characters on this page are oddballs, but Kelly is something else entirely. The things she says and the way she responds to situations is very difficult to make sense of. Nevertheless, her out-of-the-box thinking can be useful. She also worries a lot about minor inconveniences, and often forgets she has to live in the real world, which she seems profoundly terrified of.

Jedediah “Jet” Black

An all-round nasty piece of work, Jet (he doesn’t like people calling him by his real name) is selfish, obstructive, and constantly belittling everyone around him. He seems to consider everyone as beneath him, and very little regard for anyone else’s wellbeing. I’m sure he’ll be a joy to get to know…
