Name: Cosette Taylor
Special Talents: She can sing show tunes, act, and attempts to dance. She can also play piano.
Crush/Spouse: None yet.
Best friend: Any takers?
Bio: Cosette's story starts off with a man called Jean Valjean... However, that's a different Cosette. This Cosette seems to lead a pretty normal life with her parents and her older brother. She found her passion for theatre one day after her parents took her to go see a Broadway show. It is her dream to one day to see her name on a playbill for a Broadway show, and she has been working hard for 10 years to make sure that she gets there. Her dreams often cause tension between her and her parents, who wish she would choose a more stable career choice like her brother.
Personality: Cosette is the biggest theatre nerd you will probably come across. She is able to quote Les Miserables backwards and forwards (both the musical and the novel), and is constantly obsessing over some musical or play. Along with her love for theatre, she has an eclectic music taste that varies from modern day music to compositions of the Romantic Period. She is also rather blunt and sarcastic. Cosette has built up a pretty thick skin because of the business she hopes to get into, so she tries her best to block out the weird looks she receives while she is obsessing. However, Cosette still has a rather vulnerable side, and is also easily envious of people, especially her older brother.
Other: Her parents named her Cosette because her mother gave birth to her the day after they saw Les Miserables, which adds fuel to her obsession with that. She also plans to major in theatre in college, and move to New York. (I also totally didn't base Cosette's obsession over musical theatre with my own... Yeah... absolutely not... xD)
Name: Erik Carlson
Special Talents: Erik is a phenomenal writer.
Crush/Spouse: None yet.
Best Friend: None yet.
Bio: Erik does not really have a place to call home exactly. Of course he physically lives with his unemployed, constantly arguing parents. However, Erik has never felt completely at home within his family or in the town in which he resides. To escape from this feeling, Erik loves to write stories about far away places. He hopes to one day write a successful novel that will inspire other people in his situation to dream of daring worlds with brave characters.
Personality: Erik is a rather bright young man. He is creative and intellectual along with his writing skills. He is also a very big optimist. In his situation though, this can be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, his optimism makes him fun to be around, and gives him the ability to rub some of his hope onto others. On the other hand, his optimism can also make him rather oblivious to the situations going on around him.
Other: Erik hopes to major in writing when he goes off to college.
