Character Breakdowns:

DAN: (Male: Age 20 - 30) The "Bear Man", Dan was given anything he wanted as a kid, never had to work for what he wanted, which had him grow up to be a naive man child. Thus when his girlfriend Cindy, the only person who really understood Dan dumps him, he becomes an emotional wreck. Dan's manic behaviour, as well as his emotional fragility, makes for an occasionally volatile human being. He feels things too hard and isn't good at just shrugging off the punches life throws his way, so by the time Cindy leaves him, he's left emotionally punch drunk.

KYLE: (Male: Age 20 - 30) Kyle is grudgingly Dan's best friend. Kyle likes to approach most situations with the attitude that when other people are messing up it's his job to clean it up. Kyle is the oldest of three and never really gotten over his lost childhood having had to help raise his younger siblings.
