Jay is the charming rocker boyfriend with undeniable talent and sex appeal. He’s the guy that girls can’t help but fall in love with. Must be an excellent actor.

Character is 10 years old. Impressionable, expressive, and authentic. Must have a strong voice for solos and strong ability to move and do choreography. Rise: Looks mid 20’s to 30’s. The quirky "misfit nerd" turned cool with high-functioning autism. Enthusiastic and joyful in pigtails and school-girl drag, she is decked out with tech gadgets and gears. Able to shred on electric violin (or any other “geeky” instrument -- ie: accordion, any stringed instrument, recorder, melodica etc.) With her "mind power," she controls time and telekinetically moves objects. The protagonist calls upon Rise when she feels like she doesn't fit in. Rise helps the lead character to celebrate her own unique “special-ness” with freedom and joy. Seven: Looks 30’s. In outrageous “school teacher” drag, she is the short-fused, sharp-witted, type-A ball-buster. Wise-cracking with Bette Midler sass. With her superpower of "truth," she wears magic, “lie detector" glasses which reveal the truth of what people are actually saying despite the words that come out of their mouths. Lola Touche’: Looks mid 20’s to 30’s. High belt and high harmonies. British femme fatale, she is a sultry secret agent in “Bond-girl” accoutrement.

Punk rock superheroine with spikes, chains, a mohawk, and chunky boots who has the ability to manipulate fire. She has a butch, James Dean quality -- few words, but with potent, fiery vocal ability. Must have a strong high belt and rock voice. With her superpower of "resilience," she is quick to pick herself up from any situation like a rocket, or a phoenix rising from the ashes. Ima-Mazing: Looks 30’s-40’s. Fabulous, full-figured diva with a big voice and a no-nonsense attitude. She owns her assuredness and shares her wisdom freely. With her superpower of "confidence," she has the ability to grow in size to stomp out her foes. Ima-Mazing appears when Katie needs to be the embodiment of self-confidence and self-worth.

She is the comic book reflection of the protagonist, Katie who appears as a Greek goddess with lightning wings and should closely resemble Katie. Lightning Girl is a direct reflection of Katie’s power or lack of power in the comic book world. Sasha: Groupie girl and president of Jay’s "street team.” Dressed in revealing rock and roll clothes, her confident sexuality is disarming. Psykasha: Sasha in the Comic Book world becomes the evil serpentine villainess, Psykasha.
