Characters in Indigo as I imagine them.
Maya Bennett: Main character. 28-year-old widow, and single mom of 9-year-old Lucas. Her late husband Steve was killed in action in Afghanistan 5 years ago. They were high school sweethearts. She works in a nursing home, and her neighbor Candace watches Lucas while she is at work.
Lucas Bennett: Maya’s son. 9-years-old currently. Will discover and develop an amino acid capable of repairing and rebuilding human cells (DNA2). It is this discovery that allows people to survive time travel. Lucas in the future is the one sending people back in time to save his mother (and himself).
Indigo (Johnathan Turner): Maya’s love interest. Real age of 37-years-old at current time. Originally born in England in 1872. He was a medical student at Oxford when he became deathly ill. He was taken to the future by Sela, an early time traveler in an effort to save his life. Sela dies from too much travelling on last mission to save Maya. Indigo initially resented Maya for this, but they later fell madly in love.
Max - Lucas's friend in the future, sent to protect Maya in the present.
Kev - the Everyman. You could lose him in a crowd of people, but that's an asset for him. Sent with Max to protect Maya and Lucas.
Taber: Main antagonist. He is Sela’s brother, and is leader of a group that is against time travel. He is an extremist who also blames Indigo for Sela’s death. His mission is to kill Maya, Indigo, and Lucas, and he’s insane.
