He often yells at her, and has no regard for her feelings. Brendan is attractive, like Matthew Mcconaughey in his early days. Character is in his early 20’s.
A naïve girl, who’s incomplete denial about her relationship between her and Brendan. She comes off as depressed, and a bit pathetic. She goes to this retreat with only one mission in mind: to win over her true love. She’s a petite blond, in her early to mid 20’s.
