Synopsis: A talented Prop Master entangled in past trauma, makes a dark choice to complete her commission on time.
[TALIA] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 23-30]
A master craftsman, the best in her class when she graduated art school. She creates props for theater, TV and film mostly working out of her garage, might have been a little farther along too if it wasn’t for a toxic relationship she still can’t seem to escape. Talia comes across as delicate, yet her trauma is subtly ever present. Talia left her ex Rob, a year ago and is still coming out of a dark place. She has been doing great with finding herself (yoga, meditation, ect), until Rob calls with a job, working with her favorite director. He promised he would never interact with her directly. We meet her after taking the job. After all, he is a successful production designer.
[Adrian] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 26-40]
Adrian is the Prince of darkness. He is the embodiment of the things Talia wants for herself at all costs. Power, creative respect, and physical strength. He covers it all. He has some of the vibes of a newly fit and trim tech executive with all the right green juice, and a 1980’s/90’s (not 70’s) cult leader. He has raw sexual energy, and a piercing gaze that reveals much about the one being gazed upon.
