Main character and hero of our story.
 

Airam

Airam is a 13 year old girl born and raised in New York. Her mother Navi, is a Brazilian immigrant dancer and her dad Nicholas is a german music teacher. Airam is a happy, kind, and caring girl. She is a little bit shy when she doesn’t know other people but she can also bee very goofy and talkative with people she feels comfortable with.

Music and dance are two of her biggest passions; she listens to hip hop music once in a while but she also enjoys jazz and old school music. Dogs are one the her favourite creatures on earth. She would love to have one but her parents have never let her cause they live in tiny apartment in the city.

She loves to read and watching movies at home with her parents.Sometimes she is very quiet and she enjoys spending time alone, specially when she is practicing her dance. She has been practicing ballet and modern dance practically since she could stand on her feet. 

She is a smart but she could gets easily distracted except when she is into something, in that case there’s nothing in the world that can break her focus. 

Overall she is a nice girl with a little bit of mystery but with a big heart!

Unnamed

Unnamed (we are still finding the perfect name for this guy) is an ethereal creature made of dark smoke who feeds on people´s insecurities and bad thoughts. He is invisible to the naked eye and it can take the form of any person in Airam´s life using them to fulfill his mission of corrupting Airam and making her give up her dream.

Unnamed is a representation of all negative aspects of our society that puts pressure into women´s life about the way they look. He is a smart, deceiving, proud and ferocious beast with a charm that can lure anybody into his spell.

His only mission is to see people suffer. He collects all his victims passions and dreams and use them as the source of his powers and charms.

Overall he is a bad, bad guy!
