Grim: (Adult male, unknown age)
Grim happens to be death. His job is to take people from one life to the next. But he doesn't act like the typical Grim Reaper. He's got a different personality.
Line 1: What? Don’t look at me like that. I didn’t put his name there. They were more or less randomly pulled from your head to fill the stones. Can’t have blank ones now—it’d ruin the illusion.
Line 2: Fortunately for you, you have more than all the time in the world to work it out. You don’t have to understand it today, or tomorrow.
Line 3: Well, I’m not the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, my appearance notwithstanding.
Tommy: Male (Adult, 20s)
Tommy is (spoiler alert) dead. But his after life has him thinking he could have done more with his actual life. The more he remembers, the more he regrets.
Line 1: I thought my life would flash before my eyes.
Line 2: We write about love! And nature, sometimes. And we can write beautifully even when talking about morbid things, like you.
Line 3: You’re not like I imagined. I mean, hood and cloak and all that, but . . . you have, y’know, personality.
Stan: (Adult, Mid 40's)
Stan is an every day, cubicle working, coffee drinking, get through the day kind of guy. He also has a knack for his imagination getting get better of him. (As a reference for this role, I like to think of Jason Alexander as George Costanza).
Line 1: Um, fine! Fine! Everything’s fine, just working on the Perkins report! Due Monday, after all!
Line 2: Oh good, good. That’s what I need. Well, he can lean all he wants because that thing’s NOT getting done by Monday. It’s impossible. But it’s not that. This is worse. SO much worse.
Line 3: Oh god... what if he saw me staring? Was I staring too long? Did I look away TOO fast? I don’t know what the protocol is here!
Johnson: (Adult, 50's)
Typical boss. Likes things done on time, doesn't take too much crap, and is always up... for a good laugh.
Line 1: Stanley! I’ve been looking for you. I hope you have some good news on the Perkins report.
Line 2: I can’t stress this enough. It’s a huge account, Stanley, can’t mess this one up. I need it on my desk no later than Monday!
Grim: (Adult, unknown age)
This version of Grim is the same as the male version, only it sounds like an older woman. Think Little Red Riding Hood's grandma.
Line 1: Why am I wearing this dress? This scarf is hideous! Purple and . . . what color is that? Asparagus? And . . . I’m old! Liver spots and creaky knees old. And a lady. Few people think to make death a lady.
Line 2: My only job is to escort you out of here when you’re ready. I don’t have to do anything.
Line 3: You know money doesn’t mean anything now, right? You can’t take it with you and all that. Especially here, where nothing exists.
Tina: (Adult, mid 30's to 40's)
Tina is a good egg. At least thats what it says on her Twitter bio. She will always help out a good friend.
Line 1: Beats me. I just haven’t cleaned my desk out in a while. So what’s up? I heard the boss is really leaning on you to get that report done. And I do mean REALLY leaning. Like extreme consequences leaning.
Line 2: Oooh, this must be good then. Gimme the details.
Line 3: Stan, calm down. You’re going full Costanza. You never go full Costanza.
