Name: Madame Luz Pirral
Appearance: Luz is tall and thin, with straight black hair that falls to her shoulders and pale skin. Her eyes are a bright blue, and she accents them with far too much makeup. She always wears pants suits and pencil skirts with button down blouses. Luz enjoys large and gaudy accessories.
Personality: Luz is incredibly intelligent, a strict teacher, but keeps her expectations realistic for her students. She speaks with a curiously unplaceable accent, and usually talks quite fast. She smiles a lot, but without much feeling behind it, as she tends to keep her true self behind a facade.
History: Luz Pirral grew up traveling between military bases with her father. He was a general, and though he was lenient with his parenting it wasn’t the best environment to grow up in. Luz taught herself how to thrive and survive, and when she was finally old enough to go to college she graduated at the top of her class. She wanted to be a teacher right away and actually sought out a position at a detention center because she wants to be a good influence on people who have had difficult lives.

Name: Petra Smith
Appearance: Petra is short and thin, with graying hair that used to once be a lovely blonde. She has a pleasant face, with many laugh and smile wrinkles around her eyes and mouth. She wears jeans and a t-shirt just about every day, and her wardrobe contains many shirts with dinosaurs and silly science jokes.
Personality: Petra is always joking, laughing, and not taking things seriously. She likes to be the center of a conversation, and tries to tell everyone stories about her adventures and travels. She is loud, boisterous, and easily distracted.
History: Petra grew up in a small town with a small family, and then went away to college to study geology and history. She got a science degree and worked for the government on geological surveys and building projects for 25 years. When she retired she discovered that she couldn’t sit still, so she looked for another job, and found this one.

Name: Jacob Klyne
Appearance: Jacob is of average height, but somewhat thin for his age as he tends to not eat enough. He has shaggy brown hair and chocolate brown eyes. He wears black-rimmed glasses. His cheeks dimple when he smiles, which he does often. Jacob wears button down shirts or ugly sweaters over dress pants and sneakers.
Personality: Jacob is very unassuming and quiet. He is meek and deferential, usually not standing up for himself or speaking his mind. He has a nice smile, but it usually isn’t noticeable because he is always nervous and a little anxious.
History: This is Jacob’s first job out of teaching school. He grew up in a quiet suburb with a pretty normal family, dated a little in college, and then moved away from his home state for this job. He’s living by himself in an apartment, trying to do his best at his first teaching position.
