○ Allan Kleist ○ 17 ○ Junior at BHS ○ Human ○ Logan Lerman ○ OPEN ○
The Kleist family is one of many old Brooksfield families. Allan’s parents are well aquainted with the many witch families in town, though they are not aware that the rumors of witches and demons are true. Despite the fact that generations before them lived with witches for years, they believe that the disappearances are merely rising crime rates, a result of urban influences creeping into the small town.
Allan heard the rumors of witches in his early childhood, but the talk of demons didn’t come until he was in junior high. For years, he hoped that one day his powers would emerge, that he was a witch, himself, given the fact that his family had been in Brooksfield for so long. He almost convinced himself that he was one of them, until he read into his family history and found nothing, not even a witch marrying into the family somewhere down the line. His reading expanded, and he researched demons, finding that humans were said to be possessed by them. Allan is bitter about his lack of abilities, something that he cannot control, and he has been reading up on how to welcome a demon. He is playing with fire, because while he believes that he is strong enough to harness and control the power that a demon would have, he is greatly mistaken.
○ Matilda Craft ○ 17 ○ Junior at BHS ○ Human ○ Emma Watson ○ OPEN ○
Having grown up in Brooksfield, Matilda made strong friendships like most of the other children, at an early age. Her best friend Kristine was always at her side, from the time that they played hopscotch to the times that they were covering for one another with their parents. The two were attached at the hip, and they were fairly well mannered young girls despite their little mischievous streaks.
In the past few months, Matilda has quickly become one of the trouble makers at Brooksfield High. She has suddenly started ditching classes every now and then, and sees the detention room nearly once every week. She has a penchant for storming out of classes and leaving her home without permission, slamming a door behind her - though she never dares to leave after dark for fear of the rumors going around town. Matilda is a kind person at heart, who has taken to some destructive behavior after her best friend disappeared, making the rumored danger in the town a stark reality.
- Best friend of suspected victim, Kristine Anderson.
- Acquaintance of Spencer Brooks.
○ Ella Lembrick ○ 17 ○ Junior at BHS ○ Human ○ Shay Mitchell ○ OPEN ○
Ella was born in Brookfield two or so years after her parents moved to the small town. They heard that the town was fairly safe and quiet, and it seemed like a good idea at the time. Brooksfield elementary was promising and they even enrolled in a parenting class at the local community center, where Ella met other students in the daycare and built her own little group of friends.
As she got older, Ella became more involved with those friends and spent a lot of time away from home, going to parties or just hanging out at friends’ houses. One night as was walking through town after a small get together, Ella was attacked by something she has yet to identify. She saw a figure move quickly in her peripheral vision before she blacked out. She was found on the sidewalk by Ileen, a nice woman that carried her home and gave her instructions not to wander alone at night again. She sometimes remembers flashes of that night, dark eyes and an ominous feeling, and she swears that she remembers the older woman whispering something to herself about a demon as she carried her home. Ella is not sure how Ileen had the strength to carry her, or what it was that tried to kill her. Her parents did not believe her story, assuming that she was drunk and simply fell. She lives in fear to this day, and is building up the nerve to ask Ileen just what happened that night.
- Saved from an attack by Ileen Wippet.
- Acquaintence of Rosalina Paz.
○ Colton Marlowe ○ 25 ○ Fireman ○ Human ○ Garrett Hedlund ○ RESERVED ○
Colton has lived in Brooskfield all of his life, he was well known as a respectful young boy that tagged along behind his father and was constantly washing his red Radioflyer wagon. He attended Brooksfield High and was captain of the football team his junior and senior years. The town was safe when he was younger, and people often roamed the streets late at night, something that Colton took advantage of in his teen years.
These days, Colton is close friends with many of those from his graduating class that stayed in the town. Not to anyone’s surprise, he followed in his father’s footsteps career-wise. He trained to be a firefighter right out of high school, and began working with the fire department as soon as his training was complete. Colton loves his job, though he is called to save kids who have stuck their heads between chair slats more often than he actually gets to put out fires. The number of calls his team gets has increased, however. Colton has seen an odd string of small fires occurring lately, he suspects arson, and he can almost swear that he feels a presence at many of the scenes where the ashes lay.
○ Rosalina Paz ○ 18 ○ Senior at BHS ○ Human ○ Crystal Reed ○ TAKEN ○
Rosalina was born in a small town north of Brooksfield, but her family moved to Brooksfield when she was still in kindergarten. Though she was born out of town, she is very much considered to be a true Brooksfield citizen. Her father grew up with witches in his town, where the witches were more open about their abilities, and Rosalina’s first five years were spent among them. Since she grew up among the witch children during The Time Before, she continues to do so because of her family’s ties and their references.
The Paz family moved due to similar happenings in their first town, and they were well aware of the cause of the disappearances and murders. Despite their initial decision to leave any place that would threaten their family, they established roots in Brookfield and refuse to leave their home because of demons again. Rosalina’s parents have promised their allegiance to the Witch Council and plan to help Ileen Wippet in any way they can. As humans, they may be risking their lives and putting themselves in greater danger of possession, but their friendships with witches may very well protect them.
