When a carefully-orchestrated drug bust goes horribly wrong, F.B.I. Agent Dawn Benson concludes that there are people within her own agency who are purposefully stifling her efforts to bring a wealthy, well-connected crime boss to justice. She then reaches out to an old childhood friend and college classmate now working for the C.I.A. for confirmation of her fears, as she now suspects that her best bud knows a lot more than she has led Dawn to believe.
Character BIOS[DAWN BENSON] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 20-28] [ETHNICITY: AFRICAN AMERICAN]
FBI agent. Long-time friend of Charlotte Stone via Charlotte’s (deceased) sister. Very serious about bringing criminals to justice. Suspects that due to crime boss Diego Torres’s business and political connections (and financial patronage), there are people within her organization who are purposefully trying to hinder her investigation in order to protect themselves, as well as others who can be directly tied to him.[CHARLOTTE STONE] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 20-28] [ETHNICITY: CAUCASIAN]
CIA Agent. Long-time friend of Dawn Benson via her (deceased) sister. Started her career as a “true believer”, but now somewhat jaded about the justice system and her job in particular. Doesn’t go out of her way to do much more than what is asked of her. Very much aware of the intricacies surrounding Dawn’s investigation into Diego, but keeps her distance. Has repeatedly warned Dawn to “just leave this one alone. You have no idea what you are getting yourself into.”[DIEGO TORRES] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 25-35] [ETHNICITY: HISPANIC OR AFRICAN AMERICAN]
North-American crime boss. Has several business and non-profits that help raise funds for and contribute heavily to political candidates at all levels of government (Local, State, Federal). Is about to carry out is crimes and dealings almost autonomously, as there are many at the highest levels of the justice system that do not want to see the Diego money-train come to an end.
