Hunted by a group on the dark web, she’s in danger of losing what little she has, but she won’t go without a fight. Born in South Korea, she’s only been in the US for seven months, so has a strong Korean accent. You’ll need to be able to sing for this role. 

Niko Holland is male, playing age 20–25 and Asian, white or mixed race. He’s the leader of a tough bike gang. Hogg is also male, playing age 20–22 and black. A fellow biker, he’s living with autism. Fogg is Hogg’s twin. He’s violent to those who would mess with his brother. 

Akainu “Kard” Yamamoto is male, playing age 18–19 and Asian. A Japanese friend of Yuna, he’s able to throw cards with deadly accuracy. 

Johnny Prologue is transgender (female to male), playing age 20–26 and white. A character based on the darkest side of the internet, Johnny is a sick murderer. Please note this character features in scenes of violence. Lastly, the Gunner is male, playing age 35–41 and black. He’s a deadly hitman.
