We had to design characters off of an audio track from a 1950’s b-rated horror movie. They gave us the names and their voices but everything else is kind of up to us.
And of course I gave them all back stories (shot)
Jon: probably a monster fanatic (like one of those kids who believe in big foot and will try to hunt that shit down) a bit of a nerd. Freckles.
Derek: Greaser, is the only Indian kid in his predominately white school. tries to pretend he’s not even remotely interested in the local alligator monster. Jon’s unlikely friend.
Betty: Derek’s girlfriend (they’re going steady) Super resourceful, good girl who is also interested in weird local legends even though it’s unbecoming and nerdy.
Gramps: Jon’s grandpa who owns the town’s auto-shop/garage. Jon works part time there. Ends up going on the adventure because Jon needs to borrow Gramps’ car.
