Colin James "CJ" Couchman
Theater and Performance Major
A freshman, Colin is one of those kids who was born for the stage. He is always cracking jokes, and constantly leaves Neena and her friends in stitches. He also plays a half dozen instruments, usually has a kazoo or pennywhistle on him, and can improv nearly anything on a piano. He is the youngest person on her improv team and is the house manager for TVM.

Common Locations: University of Astoria (Redhawk Dormitory Hall; Alder Hall, Library), Kaffe
Danny Marin
Programming Major. Baseball.
Quiet but fiercely competitive, Danny stands out most places he goes without meaning to (indeed, it seems to discomfit him). He and Jerome Tate are best friends, roommates in Kayman Hall, and seem to complement one another well, though their friendship is clearly strained by the new distance between them. Though he's a natural athlete, the thing he truly loves is programming - unfortunately, his math and other academic skills aren't nearly the equal of his athletics skills, so he has to work pretty hard at it. His grief over Henry is still pretty raw; despite this, he has chosen to stay part of the wrestling team and rush the ATO this term.
Season One: Kept on the periphery of all the werewolf stuff that has been going on, Danny has clearly been hurt by the distance. He has largely retreated away from his old friendships, compounded by his grief over Henry's death.

Common Locations: University of Astoria (Kayman Dormitory Hall; Student Center, Innis Hall, Athletics Center), ATO House
Jerome Tate
Music Production
In the aftermath of the Bonfire Night, Jerome has come out the other side a stronger young man. He is clearly devoted to his girlfriend Renee and has begun to shed some of his bashfulness. Though his social media presence has fallen off, he is still an avid video gamer, and hopes to write music for them one day. He and Danny Marin are best friends, and dorm-mates in Kayman Hall.
Season One: Bitten by Volk at the Bonfire Night and subsequently kidnapped by his pack when he survived the Bite, Jerome found his way back to Astoria, refusing to attack Warner even when Feral. He has since been accepted into the Astoria pack.

Common Locations: University of Astoria (Kayman Dormitory Hall; Student Center, Adler Hall)
Kerry Donahue
The Artist
Kerry is a freshman attending the UofA on an art scholarship. Her specialty is wood sculpture, and she scours Astoria's beaches for driftwood and pier debris for materials. She is either a bit full of herself or socially awkward, opinions vary, as most conversations with her tend to be halting and one sided. She attends GSA meetings but hasn't spoken much so far, and the question of her orientation or whether she might not be fully out yet is a subject of gossip among its members. Her job at the Student Center's cafeteria allows her to bring refreshments for the GSA when there is unwanted food in the kitchen.

Common Locations: University of Astoria (Student Center, esp the Queer Resource Center, Art Center), her family home in Warrenton.
Madison Rosemary Doyle
Major Undecided
Maddy is sweet, unfailingly so. She always has compassion for both parties in an argument, and avoids conflict at all costs. Her boyfriend is kinda hard on her as she is a bit of a doormat, but she assures us that he just has some unresolved trauma that makes him make bad decisions sometimes. They are trying to convince her to leave the guy and set her up with CJ instead. She also loves Fluttershy from My Little Pony. She is performing in the university's production of The Vagina Monologues.

Common Locations: University of Astoria (Sanders Dormitory Hall; Alder Hall, Student Center), Kaffe

A timid, picked-on girl who was saved by Henry, Renee has been hit very hard by his death. She and Jerome are a couple, and she has adopted Henry's little grey kitten, R2. She has also begun to blossom as a student, thanks to Dr. Litchfield's personal attention.
Season One: Heavily traumatized by Jerome's attack by a wolf while the two were making out on Bonfire Night, Renee has learned about the existence of werewolves, and continued her association with them, even coming to be considered part of the pack.

Her adoptive guardians are Casey and Esmer, a married pair of body modification artists who own the shop called Keepsake Tattoos in City Center; her relationship with them is more like that of friends than parents, given they aren't quite ten years older than she is. Sophie is a bright student and talented artist, with an avid interest in anthropology.

Carlie Banks

She attends the University of Astoria, like her housemate Elizabeth. Though she was originally a journalism major when the school was Clatsop Community College, she has since switched her major to Anthropology.

Kindra Eklund
Physics Major
Kindra Eklund a sophomore at U of A is, quite possibly, the most brilliant mind in the school. She has an amazing memory that she has trained such that many believe she has a photographic memory. She maintains a 4.0 GPA, but has done so only through the use of Caffeine. She doesn't actually have a photographic memory, just a very good one, nor can she take notes. In fact, she has to hire a note taker for her classes through the University. She is severely dyslexic, which she believes is connected to the fact she is ambidextrous. She is a pagan, and follows the Norse deities, though she refuses to use the word Asatru as she is not a part of the Asatru culture. She wears a pendant on which is inscribed the Web of Wyrd. She's not really into sports, unless you count Archery, and her membership in ARMA, but she is huge survival nut and enjoys learning old skills, such as hunting, tanning hides, horse back riding, etc.

Leah & Sarah Cohen-Klein
Anthropology Majors
Leah and Sarah are twin sisters...sort of. They have two different mothers but the same dad, and happened to be born on the same day about six hours apart. Leah is from her dad's first wife, and Sarah is from her dad's mistress and later, second wife. The Cohen sisters grew up together from the age of three and are nigh inseparable. They are fun, outgoing, and very Jewish. They are two of the three that are not part of Neena's improv group, but are performing in The Vagina Monologues. Neena met them in one of Elaine's classes last quarter and they became friends and signed on for the show.

Marie Dumond
Engineering Major; Trailjumpers
A transplant from New Orleans, Marie is a fun-loving young woman, considered somewhat rambunctuous from those who aren't used to life in the Big Easy. She takes great delight in showing up the "dude-bros that infest the Engineering program" (in her words), routinely outscoring them. Marie is also half in love with the TA Rory Quinn, who runs the Trailjumpers. Though she joined for an excuse to hang around him, she's discovered a love for and skill with parkour that she never anticipated.

Sandy Roberts
Sociology Major
Sandy grew up in Yakima WA and comes from good solid redneck stock. As a kid, she found a show called Will & Grace, that she found hilarious. She is convinced that gay men are universally smart and funny and wished she had some gay friends of her own. She was always sad that there weren't any in her town (or so she thought), and was thrilled when she was able to get in to Astoria University. While she may be horribly ignorant, she is incredibly open and fascinated by gay culture. She is sometimes sad that she is not gay herself. She has been heard telling her friends she would consider being gay, if she "didn't like cock so much". She is an enthusiastic supporter of the GSA and has been known to shake her ass to the music when she gets the chance.
Season One: While at Kaffe just before Midterms, Sandy broke down crying and tried to throw herself into traffic. Luckily, Thomas was there to stop her, and she seemed to be confused and disoriented, with no recollection of trying to do so.

She's friends with all of her many conquests, however, and a leader in the community. Many of those conquests who've gotten to know her better have heard her talk about Italian families back home with some mystery, and she seems to know a lot about Astoria's seedier side, as she's able to curry favors to obtain things most students can't. She loves dolphins, and her room is filled with knick knacks of the noble beast.

Deceased Students

Teresa Cantu
Major Undecided
Teresa has almost always been in trouble, it seems. Raised by a single mother who worked as a dispatcher with the Astoria PD, it seems like she was always getting into trouble. Because her mother was one of theirs, however, the local cops tried to avoid putting her through the system for her behavior, and several of them sort of took her under their wing, particularly Cliff Jelo, who became something of a father figure for the girl. As a result, Teresa ended up spending lots of time at the Jelo residence. She's now in university, but old habits die hard, and she's managed to fall in with some folks who tend towards a slightly more troublesome outlook on life, including one Thomas Craig. She is fascinated with Thomas's stories about his rowdy days in LA as a kid, and sometimes pushes for demonstrations over stories.
Ep 101: Teresa texted Thomas while he was investigating the UofA Athletic Center with Warner, insisting that he come to the Crossroads. When he arrived, she proceeded to swoon over Jace all night, despairing in his eventual interest in Aedia Randall and her sorority sisters.

Ep 105: After stealing the Dean's Car she dies in a car accident, almost taking Thomas and Jace with her.
Ep 106: Teresa sends texts to Thomas... from beyond the grave
