CHARACTERS

Foreperson of the Jury
A small, petty person, the Foreperson is impressed with the authority they have and handle themself quite formally. They is not overly bright but are determined.

Juror #2
A meek, hesitant person who finds it difficult to maintain any opinions of their own, Juror #2 is easily swayed and usually adopts the opinion of the last person they have spoken to.

Juror #3
A very strong, very forceful, extremely opinionated person within whom can be detected a streak of sadism, Juror #3 is also a humorless person who is intolerant of opinions other than their own and is accustomed to forcing their wishes and views upon others.

Juror #4
A person of wealth and position, and a practiced speaker who presents themself well at all times, Juror #4 seems to think themself a little bit better than the rest of the jurors. Their only concern is with the facts in this case and they are appalled with the behavior of the others.

Juror #5
A frightened young person, Juror #5 takes their obligations in this case very seriously but finds it difficult to speak up when their elders have the floor.

Juror #6
An honest but dull-witted person who comes upon their decisions slowly and carefully, Juror #6 is a person who finds it difficult to create positive opinions, but who must listen to, digest, and accept those opinions offered by others which appeal to them most.

Juror #7
A loud, flashy, glad-handed salesperson type who think they has more important things to do than to sit on a jury, Juror #7 is quick to show temper and equally quick to form opinions on things they know nothing about. They are a bully and, of course, a coward.

Juror #8
A quiet, thoughtful, gentle person, Juror #8 sees all sides of every question and constantly seeks the truth. They are a person of strength tempered with compassion. Above all, they are a person who wants justice to be done and will fight to see that it is.

Juror #9
A mild, gently old person, long since defeated by life, and now merely waiting to die, Juror #9 recognizes themself for what they are and mourns the days when it would have been possible to be courageous.

Juror #10
An angry, bitter person who antagonizes almost at sight, Juror #10 is also a bigot who places no values on any human life except their own. They are a person who has been nowhere and is going nowhere, and they know it deep down.

Juror #11
A refugee from Europe, Juror #11 speaks with an accent and is ashamed, humble, almost subservient to the people around them. They will honestly seek justice because they have suffered through so much injustice.

Juror #12
A slick, bright advertising person who thinks of human beings in terms of percentages, graphs and polls, Juror #12 has no real understanding of people. They are a superficial snob, but trying to be a good person.

Guard, Judge, Clerk
