JIMMY DE LAS ROSAS: A 13 year-old boy with powers. Jimmy lives with his Mexican immigrant grandmother and mother.
ABUELA: Jimmy’s grandmother. She works at her fruit cart in the park. She is a concerned, thoughtful individual and very wise. Spanish speaking, fluent or proficient.
JUANI: Is the fast talking neighborhood gossip who has seen one too many television shows and telenovelas. Character could be played by femme-identified individuals (cis- or trans-women, non-binary individuals, etc).
LETY DE LAS ROSAS: Jimmy’s mother, 30s. Lety is thoughtful, wise, and, most of all: tired. She is open to and sees the good in people.
AYANA: A 13 year-old Black-American homeless girl with super-powers in the form of metahuman capabilities—super-strength, speed, agility, etc. She also turns blue when her powers are activated. She is Eddie’s sister.
EDDIE: An 11 year-old Black-American homeless boy who is a telepath and brother of Ayana. Eddie is extremely good natured and longing for a home or family—to be a normal kid.
JOSE SALAS: He is the weathered and worn neighborhood mechanic.
DON MANUEL: The corner store owner who has a crush on Abuela.
MUTANT CHIHUAHUAS: A band of were-wolf like creatures and the henchmen of Don Manuel. They are furry action figures with big teeth and bloody paws (might be played by puppets?).
OFFICERS 1 & 2: Two police officers. Complex, flawed.
