Imaginative, adventurous, and tough, she takes up the charge of her family members before her to hunt and slay this horrible beast. (Two Notes: There are no sides for this character as she has no dialogue so please just submit headshots instead of an audition tape. Also, the role will involve some stunt work.)

The Father – Late 30s to 40s Father of the Child, he believes she has a right to know about the dangers of the Drain Man, and eventually encourages her to train and arm herself to hunt and kill the monster.
The Mother – Late 30s to 40s Mother of the Child, she wants to shield her from the dangers of the world and the truth of the Drain Man. The idea of losing the Child if often too much for her to bear, and causes friction with her husband.
