Type: Wolfkin

 

Colt Bradford is the son of blockbuster movie star Brock Bradford and soap opera queen Scarlet Hood.   He has a younger half-brother, B. Bradford Junior (whom he affectionately calls Brat), also an actor.

Colt was born wolfkin, and when he turned 12, his Werewolf uncle began teaching him all about the People, preparing him for the day when he’d experience his First Change.  But that day never came.

At the age of 6, he followed in his parents’ foot-steps by becoming an actor himself, and he’s been on television, on one show or another, ever since.

Colt lives in a stately Victorian mansion, Sea Cliff House, in Queens Cove, Maine.  He is part owner of the Mad Moon Rising Productions Studio, which produces  his current  TV show, Graves Hollow.


Brock Bradford & Hildie Bauer

Ages: Brock: 50, Hildie: 48

Occupations: Brock: Actor, Hildie: Fashion Model (retired)

Types: Brock: Wolfkin Mortal, Hildie: Mortal

 

Brock Bradford is an action movie hero whose first big break was the 1988 blockbuster, Grom the Savage.  Other films include three Hard to Kill films, RoboPatrol, The Eliminator, and four Space Marines.  His first wife was soap actress Scarlet Hood, with whom he has a son, Colt.  Brock was not the most faithful husband, however, and though Scarlet put up with his infidelities for a few years, when one of his mistresses, supermodel Hildie Bauer, became pregnant, the two divorced, and Brock married Hildie.  They’ve remained married ever since, despite Brock continuing to have occasional flings.    Hildie is aware of her husband’s infidelities, and though she’s not happy about them, she loves her husband, just as Brock truly loves her.

Brock is aware that he’s wolfkin, as his older brother Bryce is a Werewolf who accidentally killed their father during his First Change, when both boys were in their teens.  The two brothers rarely spoke afterward, and to this day, Brock refuses to talk about the family’s werewolf heritage.  Hildie Bauer is an ordinary Mortal who knows nothing at all about the supernatural.


Junior Bradford (Brat)

Age: 18

Occupation: Actor, Model

Type: Wolfkin, medium

 

B. Bradford, Junior is the son of actor Brock Bradford and supermodel Hildie Bauer, and he is Colt’s half-brother.  The first time Colt saw his brother, he said  the baby looked like a brat, and Brat became the name he has called Junior, with affection, ever since.  The two were very close growing up, despite living in two different homes.  Junior grew up in the shadows of his famous family members, and for years, he struggled to make a name for himself.  He started as a child model, but when he was twelve, his brother talked him into trying his hand at acting.  He appeared in numerous commercials and TV shows, as well as small roles in theatrical movies, before finally landing a lead on a show called High School Daze.  He also played a recurring guest role on Colt’s series Masks.  Junior is a reluctant medium who does his best to avoid ghosts while keeping his psychic abilities secret from everyone (except his mother and ghostly grandmother).

Age: Scarlet: 49, Tony: 52

Occupation: Scarlet: TV Actress, Tony: Media CEO

Scarlet Hood was born Mildred Colt, but legally adopted her stage name after her first marriage ended in divorce.  Her second marriage was to a fellow struggling actor, Brock Bradford, with whom she has a son, Colt.  When Colt was born, Scarlet was a relatively background character on the long-running daytime drama, The Sun Also Sets, but the writers incorporated her pregnancy into the story, and soon, Scarlet’s character was launched into the spotlight.  Over the next decade, she became the most popular character on the show, and today, she is a soap opera legend.  She’s currently on her fifth marriage, to Monumental Pictures’ CEO, Tony Butler.  She’s never had any children other than Colt.  She’s unaware that her son is wolfkin.  Tony has two sons from a previous marriage, who live with their mother.


Peter (Bryce) Bradford

Age: 53

Occupation: Unrevealed

Type: Werewolf

 

The man currently known as Peter Bradford was born Bryce, but changed his name when he went into hiding after his First Change, when he accidentally killed his father.  His cousins in the San Francisco area sheltered him during those early years, and he has since grown to become Alpha of his own pack.  Bryce’s younger brother, Brock, was aware of the family’s werewolf heritage, but their father’s death left him bitter and angry with Brock, and they haven’t spoken in over 30 years.  When his nephew Colt was 15 and began experiencing the sort of nightmares that generally signal an impending First Change, Bryce visited his nephew and revealed the family secrets to him.  He spent the next seven years teaching Colt everything he could about werewolf lore.

Occupation: Phantom with Unfinished Business

Gertrude is Hildie’s mother and Junior’s grandmother.  A hereditary medium, she taught her daughter how to deal with and ward against ghosts, though Hildie never developed any psychic abilities herself.  Gertrude died some 12 years ago, when Junior was only 6 years old, but due to unfinished business (which has yet to be revealed), she decided to remain as a ghost.  She has stayed close to her daughter over the years, but until recently, kept her presence secret from Junior.

Age: unknown (both appear to be in their late 40s)

Occupation: Katarina: Queen of the Northern Kingdom; Kirstin: Duchess of Frost Falls

Type: Fair Folk

Katarina and Kirstin are twin sisters.  Because she was born first, Katarina became Queen of the Northern Kingdom, while Kirstin was relegated to the subordinate position of Duchess of Frost Falls.  Katarina has two sons, Crown Prince Kelvin and Prince Colin, but not daughter.  Therefore, whoever marries Kelvin will be the next queen.  Kirstin is Fiona’s mother and Adriana’s grandmother.  If something should happen to Katarina before either Kelvin or Colin marry, then Kirstin would become Queen, and Fiona would become Crown Princess.


Crown Prince Kelvin

Age: unknown (appears 15)

Occupation: Heir Apparent of the Winter Kingdom

Type: Fair Folk

Known as Kelvin DeWinter in the human world, the first born son of Queen Katarina is as ambitious as he is underhanded.  He befriended Adriana Bradford at her high school in Toronto while failing to mention his true identity.  When Adriana’s mother disapproved of their friendship and revoked Hospitality, Kelvin retaliated by causing a freak storm which downed the airplane Fiona was travelling in, causing her death.  He then revealed to Adriana that his mother and her grandmother had struck a deal that betrothed the two, much to Adriana’s dismay.


Prince Colin

Age: Unknown (appears 14)

Occupation: “Spare Heir”

Type: Fair Folk

Prince Colin is the second son of Queen Katarina, and as such, he is the “spare heir” to the throne of the Northern Kingdom.  Should anything happen to Katarina before Colin’s older brother marries, then Colin’s wife would become Queen, and Colin himself would be Crown Consort.  However, Colin is still unmarried, so his chances of inheriting the crown are remote at best.  Like all male nobles, Colin is a warrior, though at this time, he is still a squire, learning the knightly arts from a Fair Knight.


Logan

Age: 16 (7 years ago, now 23)

Occupation: Surfer Dude

Type: Human

Logan was one of the kids Colt would hang out with on the beach whenever he got the chance.  More laid back and carefree than Colt’s actor friends, Logan was also the first boy to kiss Colt, awakening feelings he’d not had before.  They dated for a few months in the summer of Colt’s fifteenth year, after he had left Space Colossus, but before he began starring in Masks.


  Tommy Greenwich

Age: 75 (appears 15)

Occupation: Movie Theater Haunt

Type: Ghost (Phantom with Unfinished Business)

Tommy Greenwich was a huge fan of James Dean.  In 1956, he waited weeks for Dean’s latest picture, Giant, to show at Queens Cove’s Republic Theater.  The day it finally arrived, Tommy was in such a hurry to get to the theater, he tripped and fell down a flight of stairs in the apartment building where he lived.  Ignoring his injuries, which included a head trauma, he rushed to see the movie.  Unfortunately, halfway through the film, he succumbed to his injuries and died in the theater’s fifth row.  However, he wasn’t going to let a little thing like death stand in the way of seeing his idol, so his ghost remained to watch the rest of the picture.  He’s been haunting the Republic ever since, eagerly watching each new movie that is shown…though he’s disappointed that James Dean isn’t working anymore.
