Need a BODY MOVERS character refresher? Meet the characters:
Carlotta Wren—29, raised to be a southern socialite, but had the silver spoon yanked out of her mouth ten years ago when her parents skipped town after her father was accused of a white collar crime. Her salvation was her love and knowledge of retail—she works as a sales associate for Neiman Marcus and scrapes by on her wits. She’s pretty and tall with a willowy figure, and long dark hair with a gap between her front teeth. Carlotta is clever and nosy and an expert party crasher. Carlotta got pulled into the world of moving bodies by her brother Wesley.
Wesley Wren—19, Carlotta’s younger brother whom she raised after their parents skipped town. A lovable slacker, too smart for his own good. He’s wiry and handsome in a scholarly way, sure of himself at the poker table, but unsure of himself around girls his age. Pokes at his glasses a lot.
Hannah Kizer—29, Carlotta’s best friend. She’s Goth-lite, tattooed and pierced for effect, likes to dress in leather. Hannah is a culinary student and happy to assist Carlotta in crashing exclusive parties.
Chance Hollander—22, Wes’s best friend. Chance is a slovenly trust-fund baby, enrolled in college but has Wes take his exams. He sells drugs and porn and is generally a bad influence on Wes.
Detective Jack Terry—35, A block-shouldered alpha dog. Detective Terry arrested Wes for hacking into the courthouse computer and reopened their father’s fugitive case. He and Carlotta have electric chemistry.
Dr. Cooper Craft—36, This laid-back beta guy is intelligent and creative. He’s the former Medical Examiner who’s fallen from grace and now works as a body mover for the morgue. When it comes to crime scenes, he’s an expert, but has no authority. He's a mentor to Wes and he’s made no secret of the fact that he wants to inspect Carlotta’s body.
Peter Ashford—32, Peter comes from a blueblood family and was Carlotta’s first love. He was engaged to Carlotta when her father skipped town, and dumped her when the scandal erupted. But now he’s back in her life and trying to make amends. He’s prim, but he's intelligent and rich, and he could offer Carlotta a good life.
June Moody—mid 50s, owner of Moody’s cigar bar. An attractive steel magnolia and mother figure to Carlotta.
Liz Fischer—mid 40s, former attorney and mistress of Carlotta and Wesley’s father. Now she’s Wes’s attorney...and sometimes-lover.
Meg Vincent—19, the too-cool, too-cute brainiac girl who works with Wes at his community service job. He’s head over heels for her, but keeps making all the wrong moves.
Mouse—beefy henchman for the loanshark The Carver. Alternately harasses and helps Wesley out of scrapes with the man to whom Wes owes a lot of money.
Brooklyn—shrewd dispatcher at the midtown Atlanta Police Department precinct; she and Carlotta are buds.
Einstein—Wesley’s six-foot long black and grey spotted axanthic ball python
The Carver—(Hollis Carver) A loan shark Wes owes money to; once carved the first three letters of his name into Wes’s arm to prove he means business
Tick—henchman for rival loan shark, Father Thom
Rainie Stephens—vivacious redheaded reporter for Atlanta Journal Constitution
Walt Tully—former partner of Carlotta and Wes’s father; their godfather
Tracey Tully Lowenstein—daughter of Walt Tully and Carlotta’s nemesis. Tracey is married to a doctor and never fails to remind Carlotta that she’s no longer on the social register.
Mrs. Winningham—Carlotta and Wes’s nosy and long-suffering neighbor who thinks they’re bringing down the neighborhood.
Lindy Russell—Carlotta’s patient boss at Neiman Marcus.
Maria Marquez—Detective Terry’s former partner, a beautiful and intelligent profiler.
Michael Lane—Carlotta’s former coworker at Neiman Marcus.
Jeff Spooner—Wes’s coworker at his community service job; he’s a slovenly gamer.
