More Supporting Characters for Geode Corner! Raju and Claudia (the top two) were not in the original storyboard. I came up with them when I realized I wanted a few younger characters (Raju is 19, Claudia is 17) and rivals for the GC crew.
Raju= Raju is Kaede's smarmy nephew. (See below) He's a playboy with a talent for music. He also has a special con-artist talent yet-to-be-revealed. Raju sees Silas as his rival but he also idolizes him a bit. He likes to tell girls he's a J-rock star in Japan, even though it's a total lie.
Claudia= Claudia is Raju's only real female friend, and his partner in crime. She looks up to his aunt, Kaede Yuki, and tries to act tough when Kaede is around. Claudia, however, is a horrible con-artist. She sucks at lying, can't act, can't sell things or forge signatures, and prefers to play video games instead of doing actual work. Claudia lazily avoids leaving her couch, but her strength lies in computers and understanding technology. Claudia wants to be a video game designer and only stays in the con-artist business for Raju's sake.
Kaede- Kaede is the leader of a mysterious agency affiliated with the Geode Corner crew. She appears strong , has a touch of "bad girl", and manipulates people through understanding their weaknesses. Kaede likes to taunt the GC crew when it's time for them to pay her "boss", and seems to generally dislike men with the exception of her nephew, Raju.
Simone- Simone is Charlene's wild, out-of-control, cousin who lives to party every day of the week.
