20. John’s good friend. Political Science major at same Ivy League University. Thoughtful and empathetic in many ways, but style and temperament-wise he is very close to being a hipster. Has a certainty about his point of view that can border on arrogance at times. Comes from a working class/activist background that he idealizes, but he is much more entranced by the elite Beltway world he finds himself in than he lets on.
30s. Advisor to John Sr. Professional and primarily concerned with John Sr.’s campaign/public image. As someone who works in communications in the campaign, he stands to have a very prominent role in an administration and would be dealing with any scandals or controversies aggressively as a point man. Attractive and masculine. Has put in years and years of around-the-clock work to reach this position, preventing him from finding the time for close relationships or a family.
Early 50s. Married to John Sr. and Mother of John Jr. Someone who has sacrificed in extraordinary ways to support her husband's career and is deeply invested in his success, perhaps more than anything else in her life. At the same time she truly loves her son and cares for his well-being. His growing autonomy from adolescence on has been painful for her but she has tried to accept and encourage it, at times going against her own instincts as a parent. Has had to contain her sexuality as required by her public persona, but is someone who feels real passion and longing. Remains profoundly traumatized by John's adolescent car accident.
Mid-50s. Presidential candidate. Charismatic, ambitious, and powerful. Has been raised since birth to become President and has moved in elite circles for his entire life, both nationally and internationally. Has a profoundly sophisticated understanding of compromise, political realities, and especially the international situation. Has not only been "groomed" for this position but has worked incredibly hard to be prepared to achieve success in it. Is painfully aware of how Presidencies have stumbled out of the gate and what opportunities there are for success at a fraught time in world and American history. Has never had as much time with his son as he knows would be ideal and subsequently has always felt somewhat distant from him, despite loving him deeply. His son's sexuality remains a confusing and painful thing for him, despite surface acceptance and care. Like Jessica, remains profoundly traumatized by John's adolescent car accident.
