Character BIOS

MARK SMITH, Male, 18-24, Any Ethnicity

Mark is a fun-loving goofball who isn’t the smartest in the room but always keeps things fun. He took an internship at the Historical Society because he wanted to hang out with his friends and thought it would be easy work. He always has a story to tell about his eccentric uncle who he idolizes.


JOHN DIK-JAKOV, Male, 18-24, Any Ethnicity

John is Mark’s straight-laced best friend and de facto leader of the group. He always wants to do his best and follow the rules, but the pressure he places on himself to do so makes him extremely anxious. John envies Mark’s relaxed, go-with-the-flow attitude but can’t follow suit because of his need to be responsible and feel in control of his life.


CHRIS JONES, Male, 18-24, Any Ethnicity

Chris was the first friend to get an internship at the Historical Society and recommended the job to John. Although he’s more introverted and prefers to be behind the camera, he has a big personality and loves playing pranks on his friends.

Mascot Experience a plus though not required.
