IDA AYU INDRASARI “Ayu” (30’s)
A dynamic young Balinese lawyer. Sharp, idealistic and a match for Foxx on any day, she is forging her way through the patriarchal society whilst remaining grounded in Balinese philosophy. Foxx’s lessons in legal practice law are repaid in spades as she guides him through the intricate cultural minefield of custom and ritual in the island of the Gods.
BAGUS SUTRISNO “Gus” (30’s)
Gus is the local police detective in the island’s rural heartland. This hard-working copper is uncomfortable with the compromises that are just part of policing this part of the world. Breaking a case with international implications is the step he needs up the career ladder but while Foxx is something of a friend – a willing listener- he’s also an intimidating and erratic ally.
GUSTI RATNA SINTA “Sinta” (30’s)
Balinese Priestess. Despite considerable opposition, Sinta is now a priestess, community leader and partner in a spiritual meditation and yoga centre with Lucy Forster. Fiercely committed to protecting Balinese culture and harmony between community, environment and creation, she can see the demons that haunt Foxx and views his interference into her community as both a blessing and a threat. Sinta is unable to process her attraction to Franklin.
LUCY FOSTER (30’s)
Californian yoga instructor and sister of the deceased girl, Lucy grew up lacking for nothing but affection. As a result, she has spent most of her adult life seeking out somewhere to belong and Bali provided the perfect fit. Naive and well-intentioned, Lucy found a sense of purpose teaching Yoga at Sinta’s meditation centre. The move also brought her to her lover, Wayan. Lucy has invested both money and soul into the meditation centre. Life was as good as it gets until her sister Kristy turned up dead.
Balinese Yoga Instructor. Handsome, thoughtful and spiritual, Wayan is Lucy’s rock.
ANNE HASSLING (50/60’s)
Meddling hotel proprietor and self-appointed protector of North Bali. A British ball breaker who loves a scandal and is never seen without her two huge dalmatian dogs – a pompous nosey parker.
Long suffering husband to Anne Hasling. Komang is a kept man but his colourful personality delights in exploiting his wife’s foibles.
IBU OKA (50’s)
Partner in Foxx’s Café . The no-nonsense legal owner of the beachside café where Foxx spends his days. Ibu Oka’s smiles and glares speak volumes and she needs no words to let you know where you stand.
Café manager and Ibo Oka’s son. A carefree soul, has a keen eye for observation and a great sense for the absurd.
EMMA FOXX (late teens)
Foxx’s daughter. Emma is estranged from her father, who disappeared when she was young. She desperately wants his love but has no intention of letting him off easily.
CHARLES GUNAWAN (40+)
Criminal businessman. No stranger to violence as a means to profit, Gunawan will stop at nothing to protect his illegal enterprises, including bribery, kidnapping and murder.
