PILI KAWENA

Female, HAWAIIAN, 11 to 14 yrs (to play 12 years old). Pili was born and raised in Brooklyn, through and through. She spends her days more... adventuring around the city in search of geocache locations (scavenger hunt with electronic and navigational devices), occasionally getting into sticky situations. She is sharp and precocious, mischievous but kind and good-natured. Her quick-thinking and biting wit help her along her biggest adventure yet when she and her older brother, IO, have to return to her single mother’s home in Hawaii. less...

IOANE KAWENA

LEGAL 18 A PLUS. Male, HAWAIIAN, 15 to 19 yrs (to play 16 years old). Even though IO was born in Hawaii, he moved to Brooklyn at a very more... young age and has lost touch with his Hawaiian roots. Puberty was good to him and combined with his inherent athleticism and dashing looks, he has developed a healthy confidence. And while he and Pili do not get along at this age, there is a real love and protection that IO feels for his sister. But the life he loves so much in NY is in danger of being flipped upside down when his single mom brings Pili and him back to Hawaii. less...

HANA OKUMURA

LEGAL 18 A PLUS. Female, HAWAIIAN, 15 to 19 yrs (to play 16 years old). Hana breathes Hawaii through and through, totally versed in more... Hawaiian history and culture. She’s a beautiful, caring, strong and nurturing friend of Casper, who is Pili’s new friend in Hawaii. Hana also has a strong sense of herself and how others should be treated. When the adventure turns into more than just that, Hana is there to keep everyone calm. less...
