- TEQUILA: (African American Male. Mid 20’s to Early 30’s) Leader of a Detroit gang who has gotten in too deep with a local Mexican gang. After the unsolved murder of his cousin, he becomes more introspective on his own life & decides to leave the underworld. But before he can do that, he must help the Mexican gang rip off a Middle Eastern drug shipment to pay off a debt & have enough money to make a run for it. (Very cautious, almost fidgety. He’s uncomfortable as a gangster, and we see him in numerous situations where he must put up a façade of killer, so people will not question his authority.)
- THE PACKAGE: (Middle Eastern Male. Late 20’s to Mid 30’s) A Middle Eastern chemist who was sent to America to chemically improve the quality of drugs on the east coast of the US. His destination is New York, but because of security measures at JFK airport; he flies in to Detroit to meet a convoy that will drive him to NYC. But when his convoy decides to double cross him, he must fight for his life. (Quiet, patient, extremely observant. He pretends to know less than what he does.)
- LT. BAUER: (Caucasian Male. Late 30’s to Early 50’s) A hard boiled narcotics detective whose unorthodox policing methods have recently caught up with him. After numerous failed attempts to bring down the local Mexican gang utilizing undercover officers, he deploys a series of raids on their drug houses to weaken their foundation. (Divorced, beaten down. He is extremely sarcastic, off putting, talks down to a lot of people & generally an asshole. Somewhere along the line he lost his way.)
- STYLES: (African American Male. Early 30’s to Early 40’s) Cousin of Tequila, mid-level drug dealer in his own right. Entrepreneur who invests in other legit businesses such as car washes & barbershops as a way to clean up drug money. (Flamboyant, ambitious, charismatic, playboy. He’s the total opposite of Tequila.)
- NITTY: (African American Male. Mid 20’s to Early 30’s) Second in command over Tequila’s gang. He often questions Tequila’s passiveness & loyalty to the Mexican gang who cheats them out of money. This causes a division in their gang. When Nitty finds out about the Mexican’s plot to rip off the Middle Eastern’s drug shipment, he devises his own scheme to rip off the Mexicans without Tequila’s permission. (Callous, Jealous, Grumpy. He often acts with bravado to impress people & provide a false sense of security for his fragile emotions.)
- MANNY: (African American Male. Mid 20’s to Early 30’s) Leader of a local gang of thieves, who were recently hired to rob the drug houses of the Mexican gang. He has grown out of the life of crime. He’s pulling together these various strings of robberies to make enough money so he can retire. (Charismatic, intelligent, tactful, militant.)
- ISABELLA: (African American/Bi Racial Female. Early to Mid-20’s) A dancer at one of the local clubs Tequila’s crew owns. She is Tequila’s girlfriend, the love of Manny’s life, and the object of Nitti’s affection. Each man wants Isabella to run away with them. She is in love with them all. This love “triangle” will complicate the relations of all parties involved, as a result causing dire consequences. But at the end of the day her own self-preservation trumps any feelings she has for them. (Smart, Ambitious, Realist.)
- NESS: Any Race. Male. Mid 20’s to Mid 30’s) Assassin hired to murder Manny’s crew. (Self-proclaimed movie buff, sarcastic, funny)

- SANTANA: (Latin American male. Early to Mid-20’s) A local thug apart of the Mexican Gang who is trying make a name for himself.
