DAZ

The kind of guy you’d instinctually cross the street to avoid, Daz has long forgotten what his true self looks or even sounds like, so immersed has he become in the hostile urban swagger of his inner-city stomping ground. But, like many of his peers, his prick-like posturing masks a caring, loyal and vulnerable nature.

TASHA

Tasha has helped her neighbour Pete raise his two children every day since his wife passed, often times at the expense of her own needs.
Her effortless charisma, boundless energy and creative flare both delight the young, and disarm even the most hardened cynic. In a story seemingly starved of heroes, you only have to look to Tasha to find the moral crux.

Mother Doe

This enigmatic moniker was bestowed upon her by the homeless community who she walks amongst, but whom few have ever spoken with.
