Character Breakdown / Project Needs

Shadow: The shadow is the part of the main character’s (the ‘girl’) personality that represents all the parts of herself she is hiding from; the part of her that she refuses to admit exists within her. The shadow is non-existent in the girl's conscious self. Rather it manifests in her subconscious thoughts. The shadow is a haunting teacher for the girl; leading her through various planes of her subconscious to help her come to terms with the demons that plague her. In terms of appearance, the Shadow mostly resembles the girl’s figure, however it is a blackened and twisted version of herself. It has long greasy black hair, greasy skin, it is not bound to the same laws of physics that the girl is; it can move much more freely than her. Even in her own head.

-Height: 5’0 - 5’4 -Age: 16-35 -Eyes: Blue -Ethnicity: Any

Paternal Figures:
The girl’s parents are a major source of her inner strife. Within her subconscious they appear as a 1950’s mother and father arguing. The parents are completely unaware of the girl’s presence, much as her real-life parents are. Both the mother and father wear strange masks. These masks represent their inability to come to terms with their own demons and are the façade that they constructed in front of their true selves to hide from their own pain.

Mother: -Height: Any -Age:

The creatures that the girl comes across within her subconscious are a continuation of the themes portrayed by the paternal figures; they are more demon like in appearance; however, they all wear masks for the same reason; to hide their true selves. Like the parental figures, the creatures do not notice the girl at all; much like how she feels when she interacts with people in the real world. Unlike the parents however, these characters aren’t necessarily real people from her real life. Instead they are the traumatic memories and suppressed emotions that the girl must realize as she travels through her subconscious and become more self-aware.
