Woodstone College

Woodstone College is located on the outskirts of the town, and nearly all up and coming college students will attend this college. The college specializes in the sciences, but also offers studies in business and arts.

The professors of the college are all the head of research in their field of study, and have ongoing research so that they can publish their work.

The college has a secondary secret location right in the heart of the town. It is hidden in plain sight within the store fronts. There are walls between the shops that are actually 6 feet wide that lead underground to an entire research facility. There are few people privy to this site, and even fewer who really know what experiments are done. Many of the scientists doing work in the hidden site don't know the true purpose.

Barter Bob's Import Grocer

At Barter Bob’s, the initial idea was to bring in ingredients and food items that the area was unfamiliar with prior to this store. There was a purpose behind the items chosen to help keep any genetic anomalies from occurring to the residents of the town (i.e. diabetic or being overweight).

The food that is sold in the store is sometimes not what it would appear to the normal customers. There is a group of scientists behind what is actually being grown and created as ingredients. Depending on where the food items are imported from there are a few other towns that also have included modified foods (but kept it a secret).

When specific foods from Barter Bob’s and certain foods from other manipulated areas are mixed (eaten together or as a part of someone’s regular diet) some adverse side effects or unanticipated changes occurred.

Bob, the owner of the store is rarely seen and has a very mysterious life that most people don’t know anything about.

Ken Brickman

The assistant manager, Ken Brickman, has been working here for a long 7 years. It was originally a part-time job he worked around the local community college and it became a job with more hours, more responsibility until he was no longer in school and he was working here full time. None of his dreams for a career lie within the walls of this grocery store, but every time he starts to find a job elsewhere some aspect of life comes in and makes it difficult for him to leave a job that he securely has and feels safe and competent in keeping. The grocery store carries a lot of the town’s imported food items. Because they specialize in non-local items, there are opportunities for the manager and assistant manager to travel to other areas to scout out potential items to sell in the store.

 *Ken has a prior relationship with the research professor at Woodstone, where he just graduated. His complicated past is what has really made a job search so difficult.

Sally Lewis

This character, Sally Lewis, is a shy and self-conscious young 20-something female. She is really into reading books because she gets along better with fictional characters than she does with actual people. She has two favorite subjects to read about: (1) scientific themed books about how the universe and earth evolve and were created and (2) scientific books about evolution and genetic changes amongst living creatures (humans and reptiles especially).

*Sally has a beginning relationship with the breeder at Selective Snakes. She asks a lot of questions because she does a lot of reading on the subject. The breeder doesn’t really know why he chooses particular traits over others. Because of this, he often shares information that is really more behind the scenes but he doesn’t have a clue what is really happening with selective breeding and research.
