Alex has lived in Iqaluit, Nunavut his whole life. He’s accustomed to the below freezing temperatures, the remote communities outside of the capital, and the occasional 24 hour darkness that comes with December.
Jack on the other hand, is not. He’s a lonely American who grew up in the warm, sunny state of Florida. Living in his own small, red-neck town has left him aching for adventure, and the desire to see the world. Anything was better than the mundane life that he’d lived his whole life. That was when his long-time friend Zack jokingly suggested he “run away to the North Pole”; the complete opposite of the Sunshine State.
Jack took him a little too seriously.
The witty, charming northerner that intrigues Jack. Alex is an aspiring visual artist, taking inspiration from traditional native art And Inuit mythology to create his artwork.
Also an artist and one of Alex’s former classmates in college. Aputi is strong-willed and stubborn, who relates everything back to politics. A strong indigenous rights leader and activist, everyone knows not to cross Aputi. Everyone except for Jack.
The arrogant and sly southerner that seems to get on Alex’s nerves at every chance he gets. Although he seems annoying and irresponsible, at heart Jack is a curious wanderer, seeking the adventure of a lifetime.
Cheerful, happy, and probably the kindest man in the territory, Rian Dawson is Alex’s best friend, and is notorious for his good nature, and stunningly white teeth
Although he seems quiet and reserved at his surface, Zack is loud and boisterous behind closed doors. Zack has a dark sense of humour, and a cynical outlook on life. Hates the cold.
