The Thieves; Cate Carson, Lee Simonds, Reza Breakstone, Fiore Leo
Cate Carson as Charity
Charity is a drive-in-the-fast-lane, get-rich-quick thief who falls for the leader of the pack, Callum Murphy. At an early age, Charity had a bad run-in with a cop who killed her brother, and she has had an aversion to the law and the police since. Charity is bipolar and sociopathic, simply put, a loose cannon with very a bad temper. Charity is totally devoid of any behavioral restraints whatsoever. She acts impulsively before thinking. She's wildly sexual and not afraid to use her sexuality and moxie to get what she wants, and what she wants is to take the money and run.

Lee Simonds as Callum Murphy
Callum's mother left when he was just a baby due to his father's overbearing, militaristic, strict and abusing personality. His father tried to get him to join the military, but it was clear that he had no interest in the military even from a very young age. Callum was kicked out of several boarding and military schools due to his disrespect of authority. Callum's father considered him a disgrace to the Murphy family and disowned him. Murphy fell into the wrong crowd and he spent some time in jail after a failed bank robbery. His lust for money and power makes him a cold and calculating criminal. The only thing Callum loves more then money is his ruthless and coldhearted girlfriend Charity.

Reza Breakstone as Nico Costello
Born into a dysfunctional home that he was ultimately removed from, Niko's life is a story of squandered talent. His relationship with his mother was non-existent as she was young and unfit to take care of one child, nevertheless two. His father was a bum: an abusive alcoholic who terrorized his family. All Niko remembers from his father was how he used to beat Bennie, his older brother, mercilessly for trying to step in and take a beating in place of their mother. He hated his father for this and worshipped the bravery of his still young, yet older, brother for standing up to him. His only source of stability was his older brother, Bennie, who loved him and protected him, but could not provide adequate guidance apart from street code. When Bennie was imprisoned, Niko temporarily lost the only constant in his life. He turned to drugs, his life spiraling out of control. Now that Bennie is out of jail, Niko is determined to be by his brother's side, even if it means turning to a life of crime and violence to do so.

Fiore Leo as  Bennie Costello
Born to a seventeen year old girl during a time when teen girls did not become mothers, Bennie’s youth was spent in a constant state of dysfunction. He spent his days on the streets with the wrong crowd and his nights watching his mom get physically abused by his alcoholic father. Bennie was always grateful that his younger brother Niko didn't share the same memories since his father deserted the family when Niko was very young. Their father’s departure shifted the responsibility of raising Niko to Bennie. Bennie became Niko’s guardian, father figure, and brother from the day Niko was born. Bennie had no idea what these roles meant. All he knew was how to protect Niko. Niko admired and loved Bennie but, unfortunately, Bennie was not much of a role model. By the time he was a teenager, Bennie’s mom had died from a drug overdose and him and his brother ended up in and out of foster homes.
