Times of the HG Wells Cast

Lead Original Characters

HD (Henry Desmond) Avery IV – this hipster with a hidden confidence issue embodies every young man who hopes against all hope that no one will look too closely; Daniel Beauchaine – originally meant less angsty; the character just ended up going that way; Sheilagh Bernstein – a character that is, in part, a surrogate for me; Carmen Calavicci – Carmen is almost cigar-chomping; Marisol Castillo – the femme fatale; Levi Cavendish – Levi is troubled in a lot of ways; Milena Chelenska – Milena is damaged by her history; Otra D’Angelo – a human-Witannen hybrid, but is perhaps the best-adjusted of all of the main characters.

Eleanor Daniels – this museum docent brings in another artistic and historical element to the stories; Thomas Grant – Tom is meant to be the solid guy; Deirdre Katzman – Deirdre is bubbly with a wry sense of humor and names the time ships; Kevin O’Connor – this human-Gorn hybrid is based on a friend with the exact same name; Polly Porter – a no-nonsense advice-giver, likely to tell you to pull yourself up by your own bootstraps; Crystal Sherwood – she is somewhat intimidated by all the intelligence in the room; Boris Yarin – this human-Klingon-Xindi sloth hybrid is unhappy in his life, and seeks excitement in the wrong places.

True Characters

Since this series has to do with time travel, and almost all of it occurs from 1957 – 2011, some real historical persons appear. Most of them get a positive spin, except for people like Timothy McVeigh. None of the dialog is real; it is all made up by me. I hope I have done these people justice.
