ELEANOR (early 30s, Open Ethnicity) – FEMALE. A go-getter who needs to come into herself and spread her wings as an adult. Worked her way through law school and now works at a corporate law firm as an associate. Slightly competitive, indecisive, and kind hearted. She wants to be a lawyer to help other people, but she also wants to please the people she loves – especially her dad. Dealing with dad’s death puts her life/priorities on hold. Best friends with Ryan.
RYAN (18-25, Caucasian (ideally a red head) or Open Ethnicity) – MALE. Loyal sidekick/confidant to Eleanor. He’s a summer intern at the law firm where Eleanor works at.

DEREK REID (30-45, Caucasian) – MALE. Frat-guy meets trust-fund incarnate. Came from privilege and worked his way up as a partner at a corporate law firm. A typical “guys” guy, cocky, and somewhat abrasive. Wants to keep the corporate environment casual, although he knows the reality that law isn’t always exactly about justice, it’s about whoever your client is. Eleanor and Ryan’s boss.
JACKSON MYERS (14-18, Open Ethnicity) – MALE. A young teen trapped in the middle of a custody battle. Son of Moira Myers. Independent, decisive, and knowledgeable. He wants to be liberated from his parents household and find his own walk of life. He represents everything Eleanor is lacking, and through their relationship, they help each other.
