Matthew Harris/Red Vulture
Matthew is searching for the cause of his father's death, which leads him to steal protoype armored suit to find the killer. The movie is centered around three stages of his life, his voice and personality change with all three stages. During the first he is 18 years old, happy, and ready to head off to college. He sounds young and inexperienced. The next stage takes place 4 years later, he is now 22 and his voice is a little deeper and he has a very serious tone. The third stage is 2 years after that, he is now 24, his voice is the same the second stage but, it has a slight gruff tone due to him having to grow up very quickly.
(First Stage) [I've got to work on a case I need you to take your sister to her party] "*yawns* What time does she have to be there?" [Three o'clock.]
(Second Stage) "Of course there's enough evidence! The guy's arm was completely detatched! He has to have some other finger prints somewhere."
(Third Stage) "It's over Sev, we can't escape. The suits damaged and the jetpack is out of fuel. I give up."
Amelia is Matthew's sister. After her father's death she became much more reserved and became very attatched (very quickly too) to her boyfriend when she had one. She is 17 in the second stage of the film and 21 in the third. Her voice is soft, quiet, and reserved.
"We just met a couple of weeks ago and we've been hanging out a lot. Nothing official yet, not for another five days. It was like fate brought us together. We've already agreed to live with each other."
"Matt, I'm not coming home. I've made the decision to move in with Drake early. I know that you're still my legal guardian but, in five days I would have moved in anyways. I hope you understand...good bye."
It is believed that 90% of the crime within High City can be traced back to Vanders. He is a crimelord and orders the death of those who try to stop him. He has a cocky tone with a deep-medium voice.
"Don't worry about the father, I'd like to deal with him personally."
"Forget about her then, I don't want any witnesses. Get rid of the boy and we'll worry about the girl later."
Benson is one of the many police officers of High City. It is believed that he had a rough childhood so he joined the police force to eradicate everything that caused him misery. He is a little socially awkward and is very by the book. His voice has a medium pitch.
"So, uh you're Matthew Harris right?"
"We're here about the robbery. What did the man look like? And exactly how long ago was he last here?"
Drake is Vanders' right hand man and personal grim reaper. He is completely obediant to Vaners and will whatever job he is assigned. He eventually becomes close with Amelia. He has a medium voice with a slight rasp.
"The boy dropped the girl off at a friend's house."
"Yes sir. What should I do about the father?"
Sev or High City Police Department AI - 007 was stolen by Matthew. Over time Sev has come to care for Matthew and tries to make sure that he does nothing stupid. Sev can be either male or female. Feel free to use whatever voice you think fits best for this character.
"Hello I am High City Police Department AI - 007, my scanners indicate that there are several tutorials for operating this suit. Would you like me to run them?"
"Warning! Your left knee has taken damage, this will decrease operating ability."
