Under Serbian alias "David Popovic", Eliyah works from sun up to sun down, in a cleaning service, ethanol plant, and giving krav maga lessons in the side room of a bar.

Role # 2 - Emery Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Reserved, ambitious. Requires ability to affect South Dakota accent.

Raised in rural South Dakota, Emery ran away from abusive parents as a teenager, and supported herself through kitchen jobs, living in over-stuffed houses with others in similar situations. This setting was filled with drug use and lacking furniture, both of which bothered Emery immensely.

After saving up, Emery independently opened a food truck, catering to farms and businesses in the area. Through this enterprise, she was able to buy a small house for herself, with a chicken coup, and pet dog.

One day, a Serbian immigrant named David starts a conversation at her food truck. The topic turns to her trouble-making dog, which David offers to train. Through this, she discovers he shares her work ethic and love for food. The pair falls in love.

He reveals that his name is actually Eliyah, and he ran away from the Israeli special forces. He produces photographs and medals proving this. He is not yet comfortable telling her why he ran away. With her own troubled past, Emery accept this, and allows him to move in with her.

When our story begins, Emery is dreaming of a life on the beach with Eliyah, and helping him design a new face for plastic surgery, in order to avoid recognition.

Role # 7 - Moshe Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Quiet, analytical, unamused; five brief online training sessions with choreographer, three days of in-person training with choreographer, two days of filming combat scene, one day of acting.

Requires background in martial arts and/or dance.

Moshe grew up in a working class Jewish family in New York, with a deli worker father, who bonded with him over boxing, and secretary mother. His parents were warm, but mostly absent, and so Moshe was raised by video games.

He first received a Game Boy Color at the age of seven, along with the game Street Fighter Alpha. This sparked a life-long love for fighting games. As the MMA scene grew, Moshe moved towards MMA, and away from boxing. He began jiu jitsu lessons at the age of 11, eventually supplemented by Thai kick boxing and krav maga. In his first MMA match, age 20, Moshe struck his opponent, the son of a wealthy promoter, in the temple, killing him.

Barred from ever competing in stateside martial arts, Moshe became an alcoholic, eventually getting into a bar fight against three hockey players, which he won. Impressed by this, and learning of Moshe's reputation as a killer, Jewish mob boss Ari Klein recruited Moshe as an enforcer. Moshe grew to respect Klein, admiring his self-control, and appreciating the challenges he presented Moshe.

Now a few years in, and still preparing for combat with Street Fighter Alpha, Moshe is on his first hit, accompanied by a group he finds distasteful. Although he is deeply troubled by torture, a part of this assignment, he looks forward to facing the target, a highly experienced special forces soldier.

Carl grew up in a cozy reform Jewish family, in a nice Long Island house, to a corporate insurance adjuster father, and a house flipper mother. He attended private school, and played football in high school, but was kicked off the team for getting into too many fights.

After learning that his maternal grandfather was a higher-up in the Jewish mafia, Carl started working odd jobs for a local boss, becoming an enforcer, and working his way up from there.

With a lifelong love and talent for violence, Carl now feels his position of favor is threatened by Moshe, a comparatively green, but very skilled enforcer.

Sent on a hit with Moshe as part of the team, Carl is hoping to break down his morale before they get to the target. While Moshe knows the target has a lengthy military background, he are with a team he trusts, and not the least bit worried.
