Cast and Notes

There are a lot of people mentioned in the "Model Student" series. Some of them keep getting more and more important and others silently slip away. This is a list of those who are most important in this story. Some of the characters are highlighted with an asterisk, which means there is interview with the character in Triptych Interviews. These are sometimes off-the-wall conversations that I hold with different characters in my head. It's how I manage to keep them straight, their names correctly spelled, and general characteristics the same. It gives me an insight into the character and you might find it fun, too. I'll continue sporadically adding interviews as I go, so if you see a character you aren't familiar with, check the the interviews.

I guess it bears repeating: This is a work of fiction. The characters, conversations, actions, and places are made up and live only in our imaginations. The same can be said about the author. Copyright ©2013 Elder Road LLC.

The Family

*Tony Ames, the narrator, is pursuing a double degree in an experimental program between Pacific College of the Arts and Design (PCAD) and Seattle Cascades University (SCU). His major at PCAD is in painting and at SCU in English. When The Prodigal opens, he has just finished his sophomore year. His relationship with Melody and Lissa is developed in the original Model Student.

*Melody Anderson, sometimes called "Little One" by her lovers, is Tony's first love, and is also part of the unusual combination of women who have been drawn to him (sometimes, literally). She is pursuing a degree in textile arts at PCAD. Melody is Chief Operating Officer of Ice Queen Sportswear and is responsible for the design and shipment of their fashions. Gypsy calls her the Queen of Spades.

*Lissa Grant, Tony's second love, is a former model and racquetball champion. She has two children, Damon and Drew, by her first husband, Jack Wade. She is the inspiration behind and the CEO of the trio's corporation, Ice Queen Sportswear. Tony, Melody, and Lissa are the original "triptych" in this relationship. Gypsy calls her the Queen of Hearts.

*Kate Holsinger, Tony's third love, was courted by the original three and courted all three of them before finally becoming a part of the family in Triptych, part one. She has not joined the partnership, however, and seems to hold back a secret that she won't tell. Kate will be a junior at PCAD majoring in painting at the beginning of this volume. Gypsy calls her the Queen of Clubs.

*Wendy Martin, Tony's fourth love and odalisque, was an abused woman trying to make it on her own when she first encountered the group. She was injured in a fire and rescued by Tony. To her, he is both her hero and her master. She fully joins the family—but not the partnership—in Triptych, part two. Gypsy calls her the Queen of Diamonds.
