Role Description

Russell Everett: (Lead) had an incredibly traumatic childhood. His mother was a horrendously abusive, narcissistic woman that used beating and starving her son to fuel her own ego and sense of power. Because of this, he grew up with serious control issues, especially towards women. This led him to attempt his first rape at 25. He was unable to complete the act, getting cold feet and hesitating, and this caused his victim to hit him over the head with a lamp and call the police. He was jailed for 8 years, and it didn't do him any good. He found no fix for the demons in his mind. Less than a month after he was released, he attacks again. However, Lia is a target unlike any before. She understands the awful trauma that he went through, and genuinely tries to guide him through an acceptance exercise. Russell, feeling like he really has a friend for the first time, spends the night thinking about that experience. He decides to take revenge on the one who ruined his life, and also frees his little brother.
