Ryan's best friend, Elliott is a sensitive teen. The loss of his father has darkened his childhood a little bit, but he keeps pressing through it. He plays drums for the worship band in the church's youth services with Ryan. They feel just like brothers - the two of them. They've been friends since as long as they could remember. Elliott is a teen with strong faith and passion for life.
The jerk of the teens, Ben is the "tough guy". He doesn't want to be messed with. There's a lot that people don't know about Ben - He just walks around wearing a black hoodie in the summer time, and jerks his head around while staring into space. No one really knows why, and no one really wants to find out, either. Most people just prefer to stay away from Ben, and he seems to like it that way.
