Characters

Monica Flores

Monica Flores

Age: 21
Monica is an American student that takes Leonard Cosgrove's course. She is out-going and has a lot of friends, but no "best friends." She suffers from mood-swings, and is easily influenced by passing trends. She and Rooney don’t get along, likely because they’re polar opposites. She comes from an impoverished background, the eldest daughter of 7 siblings. She attends college by working part-time as a janitor and as a waitress. Her dream is to fall in love with a celebrity, and she hopes to accomplish that during the cruise.

Rooney Simpson

Rooney Simpson

Age: 22
Rooney is one of the other American students that takes Cosgrove's course. She’s introverted, serious to a fault, and dislikes standing out. Her grades are relatively high. She has largely lost the will to live after being possessed by suicidal ideations following an incident in her past. Her schoolmates make fun of her, calling her glum and stale, and she gets the sense that she doesn’t belong in the group. Her parents divorced while she was still young. Neither accepted her, so she lived with her distant relative Leonard.

Jerome Theruiau

Jerome Theruiau

Age: 28
Jerome is a gifted French conductor with a slender build and sensitive demeanor. Rooney is attracted to his introversive character and cultured background. Most recently, he’s been troubled by his unreliable memory, and joined the cruise in the hopes of getting some much needed rest.

Leonard Cosgrove

Leonard Cosgrove

Age: 55
Leonard is a British-born cultural anthropologist, and is escorting the heroine and her friends aboard the cruise. He’s hands-on, logical, and interested in occult phenomenon from an anthropologist's point of view, but has managed to get to the bottom of and debunk several occult deceptions. In his heart of hearts, he is actually a romantic and occult fanatic. He wants nothing more than to one day encounter an honest-to-goodness supernatural phenomenon that he’s unable to demystify.
