NO. 2

Eric Lowell
Mid-forties. BT regional manager. Tall, but out of shape, carrying a lot of spare weight and has bad back (sciatica). George Clooney-style grey hair, neatly trimmed. Easy-going, indoors type. Good-natured and good father but has drifted apart from wife.
Drives: Light metallic tan 2005 Volvo V70 estate.

Amy Lowell
Early-forties. MILF. Tall for a woman, 5'10", olive-skinned with long, wavy blonde hair. Should have been a model. Second-generation Greek. Teaching assistant at Mawsley Primary. Was full-time mother, but now children have grown up she lacks purpose. Now suffering from mid-life crisis. Goes gym (LA Fitness in Kettering Venture Park) daily, sometimes with Tina Mayweather.

Mikey Lowell
16 years old. Downhill mountain biker, competing in European Championships and World Cup, Men's Juniors. Handsome boy, wavy blonde hair, athletic, popular. The first-born son. A daredevil and show-off, he's always getting into trouble for some stupid stunt and goes through more bikes in a year then most people have in a life-time. (Though they aren't his expensive downhilling bikes.) Just turned 16, he tries not to get distracted by girls. Girls should obsess over him, while he casually ignores them yet he's easily frustrated by girls who don't appreciate how cool he is.
Rides: Black Marin Novato street bike and black/yellow Trek 4300 hardtail.

Nikos Lowell
13 years old. Tall for his age but lanky, with mop of brown hair and glasses. Always has a cold. He's become more of a loner as his brother's gotten older and developed a large circle of friends. Quiet and reclusive, Nikos will talk animatedly about Star Wars and Indiana Jones to anyone who shows an interest. He can often be seen in the field practicing his moves with his Force FX lightsaber, or wearing his fedora and tracking badgers (sometimes a combination of both).

Reece McKenzie
3 years old. The boy who might as well not been born. Looks a lot like his father. A serious boy, he rarely smiles and is cared for mostly by Polish au pairs or one of the local childminders. His parents are far too busy, but it's OK because having a child hasn't inconvenienced them at all.
