SCREEN TEST!  
Congratulations! You have been drafted to use your poll-ticky skills in the final round of casting for my chaos_thon show, RISK. If you have thought of someone else in the meantime, suggest away!

The poll is below the cut (IMAGE-HEAVY), and below that are the character bios again for reference purposes. As a general rule, you should be able to imagine these characters sleeping together. Because they, you know, probably will.

And bios!

Dylan Hart: Dylan is the leader of the team in the field, and his expertise is tactics. He studies, he researches, and he believes deeply in what they're doing, and the company they're doing it for. He probably considers the moral ramifications of their actions more deeply than anyone else on the team. He tends to form close relationships with people. He's known Camilla, now his primary confidante, for years. Dylan and Tabitha have a long-smoldering attraction, possibly occasionally consummated, but he doesn't mind making himself available to other women, and he will have at least one serious relationship with a civilian (Sara Howell, below).

Camilla Fairchild: Camilla, the team's combat and ordnance specialist, enlisted in the Marines out of high school to spite her wealthy, estranged father. She was quickly recruited by Libertech for the corporate intelligence division, and has had several years of experience individually in the field. Camilla fights hard and plays hard, calling herself "sexually opportunistic," and will always find a good time. She has a bit of a devil-may-care attitude and is used to striking out on her own, though she likes her team and learns to be part of the group.

Tabitha Brewer: Tabitha is the team's "honey trap," an infiltration expert who uses seduction as one of the weapons in her arsenal. She's home-grown within the company, hired at 18 for the corporate mailroom, but was quickly singled out and trained for covert intel. She has spent time undercover, and the company put her through two years of college, where she met Shea. A natural caretaker, she looks out for those in her division, and is sometimes haunted by memories of a past mission gone bad where she killed an exposed enemy operative. Because she helped bring Shea into the company, she considers her to be her personal responsibility.

Michael: Michael is the team tech, calibrating radios, upgrading their recon technologies, hacking into computer data, and providing remote assistance. He spends most of the time at the "house" or in the car during missions, and is is rarely on the front lines. He's also the main communications link between their team and the rest of the Libertech intelligence division; while Dylan is the one to get their assignments directly, Michael is in constant contact with the other intelligence arms and often knows first what's going on. He's new to any kind of on-site work and is more comfortable far away from danger, but his desire to solve every puzzle means he can't turn down this opportunity. He carries a brightly-burning torch for Camilla, and believes one day he'll win her over.

Catherine Shea: Shea is contracted to work with the team on individual missions, but isn't fully committed to the project or totally "in the fold." She's a doctoral candidate in psycholinguistics with an innate genius for cryptography. She has known Tabitha since Tabitha took one of her classes, and would not have taken Libertech's offer without her involvement. At first, she is kept in the dark about most of the team's activities and objectives. She goes by Shea, though Tabitha will call her by her first name in a crisis.

Alexander: Alexander and James are a separate, two-man team who fall under the same "risk unit" umbrella. They spend less time undercover and more time traveling for the company on "business purposes," meeting with corporate allies and gathering information. Alexander is serious and professional and believes in running missions "by the book." He is intently concerned about information leakage, and will keep information confidential until he has permission to divulge it, even to the others in the department. He knows a lot about the long-term corporation plans, understands economics and politics, and toes the party line. He and Tabitha will have a relationship.

James: James is Jim Kirk and James Bond – the lady-killing, action-loving hotshot whose first duty is always the mission. He and Camilla will have lots of meaningless sex. James and Alexander spend all their time together on missions, and they irritate the hell out of each other, possibly in a slashy way.

Marshall: Marshall's a director in the corporate intelligence division, and the risk units were his idea. He handpicked the team and gives them their assignments. He used to be a ground operative for the NSA, and sees himself as a mentor to the group of young agents, especially to Dylan.

Sara: Sara is Dylan's civilian girlfriend in the first season. She works for another major corporation, but in a purely corporate role - nothing to do with intelligence. Dylan initially sought her out as part of a mission, but when the mission dead-ended, they started seeing each other romantically. She wants a serious relationship, and is consistently frustrated by Dylan's job and feels she plays second-fiddle to his colleagues.

Plz help!

I know, really! For any reason! It baffles me, but democracy made me give people that option.

I HAVE VOTED!

I wish I could vote twelve times for John Cho, because I wanted so badly to fit him into my cast but it just ended up that he didn't seem to fit any of the characters I created. I may well just create some other recurring character for him though.
