18 years old. 5’10”, muscled upper body, and seemingly always sporting a tan, Conner is Joel’s best friend and Joel his. Athletically inclined, he would participate in school sports merely to pass the time and be granted excuses for leaving math or history class, frustrating his coaches who only saw potential in him as an athlete.
Conner does his best to be seen as someone who is down to earth. It’s a quality that he’d always admired in his older brother but found he had to work at. Conner ‘suffers’ from a sixth sense type ability that makes it difficult to always seem accessible or approachable. He will find himself stuck in a moment, a déjà-vu, and in working through it he allows the déjà-vu to show him a future state.
He believes he obtained this ability from his grandmother on his mother’s side. He remembers stories; even premonitions she’d revealed to him and witnessed come to pass.
Conner gets that he’s different but in getting that, he goes out of his way to be normal. Graduating high school is about as far as he wants to take his classroom education. Travel would compete with college in the fall and travel won out.
He is in no way ashamed of his lack in interest in furthering his education in such things as literature, history and science in the classroom. The world would teach him what he needed to know and feed his independence.
Earthy and tough, Conner ‘s character is a perfect complement to Joel’s, both friends realizing that upon their first meeting in the sandbox.
18 years old at the beginning of The Judas Syndrome, Sara is the ‘it’ girl at her highschool. Beautiful, smart, athletic and engaging.
