A beat cop searching for Redemption in the bottom of a bottle.
A cute redhead with a personality like a silver lining.
A soldier of God doing His work to redeem the world.
A musician with a gearbox for a head and a heart of gold.
A surfer with ancient Chinese magics and a penchant for doing good.

The room was silent, perfectly still for a very long and painful moment while everyone's eyes meet and silently acknowledge that Alex Christophe was dead.
"Dude..." Jeff finally said, breaking the silence.
