Character 1
Adrian Earnst
(POC) Adrian is the emotional core of the story. Throughout his life, Adrian has been independent, pursuing arts as a career. Having moved from a foreign country for higher education, adjusting to life in Vancouver has been difficult for him. Adrian and May go to the same school and met in an elective class they were both taking together. Adrian and May have been together for 2 years now and is May’s biggest emotional supporter. Adrian is who grounds May, he’s her rock when things get rough and doesn’t let her give up when she feels like she can’t go on. He’s more than May’s support, he’s his own person who struggles with being in a relationship with a partner with chronic pain.
Character 2
Dr. Neil
(Caucasian) A doctor who has been practicing medicine for years. He is the first doctor that May sees and is invalidated and discredited by him when May tells him about her pain increasing. His experience makes him think he is always right.
