As a big project comes to a close, looking in on a few characters from its beginnings can be rewarding for the writers and the readers. For a “man on the street” perspective, we could’ve enlisted Emory and Henry, the farmers who employed Byron in Chapter 1. But they were a comically ignorant duo and their main habitat was outside the city proper.

So instead, we went with a few Chapter 2 supporting characters. Privates Brad and Paul are the two cops who dissed and disappointed Syr’Nj; Tignos is the merchant Byron tried selling to, based very loosely on Tim Gunn.
