Originally, there were three. Max, Eve, and Tyler. Normally three is a desirable number in many art forms, but for writing it's not quite enough when you want to carry out a long story. I had to think and imagine daily new story arcs to add to justify creations of new badly needed characters. Eventually Max's mother Zoe sprung into life, and following her was the miserly old priest, Mishenka. Soon after came Nana, and the Twins, Doozer, Tashi, Eve's twin brother Finn, and Zoe's courter Pyotr. More minor roles are that of Sofiya, Georgie, and his wife Olga.
I will be going more in depth on how these were created, what inspired them, their role and their lives.
