JACKSON MOORE: Male. 28. African-American. Harvard Med School. Surgical intern on rotation. Also works at a clinic. Often has a blunt and brisk manner. Says what’s on his mind and what he thinks, even though that can often get him in trouble. Defensive attitude, as a result. Has his moments, but he’s typically fairly abrasive.

BRIAN WHITE: Male. 36. White. Professor at Harvard. (title: Assistant Professor-untenured). Neuro- psychiatrist. Studies patterns of racial identity and perceptions. A bit bumbling, but still capable, and very doggedly believes in the work he’s doing—even if that work is shunned by most other academics. Practices unconventional teaching methods and research, which his department does not always approve of. Constantly needs to defend himself.

GINNY YANG: Female. 34. Japanese-American. Respected tenured professor of psychology at Harvard. Studies race and identity among Asian-American women. Matter of fact. Confident in her abilities and work-addicted. Refuses to back down. Aggressive and somewhat cold. Has a shopping addiction.
