Red Angel Dragnet – Character List
A large-framed man with ancient looks. The idea here is an Italian druid that has lived in some way from the time of Caesar’s invasion and destruction of the druids. I’m thinking Samuel L Jackson, Edris Elba, or Mahershala Ali.
A tall, fighter framed person with both soft and sharp features – sexually ambiguous – male and female. This is intentional. His/her backstory is influenced by this lifestyle. This character has lived several lives (not as long as Alabaastar) as both a man and a woman as she/he is immortal (sort of). I am thinking of Bowie, Iggy, Lou Reed, and Joe Strummer for attitude and frame. American but of Italian heritage.
A thin, street dwelling person. Smart and cunning but scared as well. 18 to 21 years old. I was thinking Italian but that is not written in stone.
This scene takes place in an Italian countryside tavern. The gang can be a mix of European types. Whatever looks good.
The Leader – Human Form
In human form, the leader is a large assuming man. Not a bodybuilder but a fighter look that could take out half the town on his own. Very sinister.
The Leader – Demon Form
Nothing too crazy here but be creative. This is a demon that took the human form to live on earth and control the humans in the gang. Artists’ discretion.
Bar Owner and Bar people
Just some background people here to fill the bar. The owner will have some scenes but I’ll leave this to artist discretion. – Try to keep from any stereotypes.

Plot/Page Breakdown – REVISION: Chapter 4 – Where do we go from here?
Est Shot: It’s a late evening at a tavern in a small town in Italy.
The tavern is quiet with only a few of the locals inside relaxing and enjoying the peace. Primrose(a tall, fighter framed person with both soft and sharp features – sexually ambiguous – male or female) is keeping an eye on the surroundings and not being attentive to Alabaaster(a large-framed man with ancient looks – Ethiopian) who is doing most of the talking. It’s obvious these two are comfortable here and have known each other for quite some time. Primrose knows Alabaaster always has an agenda and is suspicious of the meeting as Alabaaster remanences about their previous adventures.
Page 2/Page 3:
Alabaaster begins to hedge to why he has reunited with Primrose again when a group of 6 tough and hardened men and women come busting into the small tavern. Loud and intrusive, they come in not afraid of anyone and acting like they own the place. The group gets the attention of Primrose and Alabaaster. Just a few fleeting glances nothing that would need any action from our pair. As the group ramp up their good time, a young girl comes into the bar. The tavern owner obviously knows the girl and gives her some food and water and tries to usher her out quickly when the “leader” of the group that came in takes an eye to the young girl (she is pretty, in her late teens early 20s, thin-framed and looks as if she is poor-unkept clothes, little dirty).
The harassment of the young girl begins to escalate with the whole gang taking part in it. Primrose, who has been watching the events very carefully, looks over to see Alabaaster already in position for a fight. As the gang decides to take the girl from the bar, they turn to see Alabaaster blocking the side exit the tavern owner was trying to get the girl to go out of earlier. Then the group hears a door bolt shut and turns to see Primrose standing at the main entrance/exit and the fight begins.
Page 5/Page 6/Page 7
The gang members are good fighters but not good enough to beat out Primrose and Alaabaster. When our heroes subdue the 5 gang members, they turn their attention to the leader, who has been watching the fight while restraining the girl. As Primrose and Alabaaster move in on the leader, he begins to transform into his true form, demon. The leader in demon forms turns his full attention to the girl who is scared out of her mind. She begins to scream. Only this scream escalates to almost a song and begins to tear apart the demon and continues to do so until the demon is completely destroyed. Before he disappears, he looks at Primrose and Alabaaster and tells them they will never make it out of the region with the girl. After the demon is gone, the girl turns to Primrose and Alabaaster and faints from exhaustion.
Primrose looks at Alabaaster with an inquisitive look, Alabaaster looks back with a smirk. Primrose knows, therefore, Alabaaster wanted to meet in this tavern tonight. Without saying much Primrose walks over to the girl and picks her up. Alabaaster talks to the tavern owner in whispers and hands him some money for the damages and his silence. Primrose exits the tavern carrying the girl and places her in Alabaaster’s sidecar and hops on her bike (Primrose makes note that Alabaaster came with a sidecar). Alabaaster exits the tavern and gets on his bike. The two discuss the plan to take the girl to Primrose’s convent and discuss taking her to Mother Superior. Primrose puts on her habit and robe and they ride off for the next chapter.
