Loner, vegan, urban explorer, maverick - Rhiys Eichhörnchen is all this and (possibly) more. The fabric of the city is interwoven with Rhiys's very soul; city lights and adventure are his calling.

Amy Fang might just be the devil herself -- or so her friends will tell you. A teenaged art-punk from a wealthy background, Amy is a friend to all hackers, hippies and justice-seekers.

A recent scheme-gone-wrong has left Amy with a karmic debt that she must repay with community service -- this may be the only thing keeping her from becoming a supervillain.

Champion of law and order, Raj Bhatia is the eternal nemesis of trespassers, skateboarders and fun-havers.

Though it's encased in a steel shell, Raj does have a heart of gold.
Rosa Laxamana has been the financial director for the Velasquez family empire for the better part of two decades, and Sam's mentor and caregiver for nearly that long. If wealth confers power, and power corrupts, then perhaps Rosa was unable to prevent Sam's decline. But she fondly remembers a more innocent time for both of them...

In addition to volunteering, Ben's great loves include American football, fantasy novels and retro arcade gaming. He may or may not literally be a superhero.
