ELECTRA - 28
Daughter of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra. Sister to Orestes. Since the death of her father and exile of her brother, Electra has been reduced to servitude in her own house. She nurses great bitterness and hatred for her mother. She longs for her brother to return, so that he can avenge them both and reclaim his throne. A haunted woman, she feels her youth passing away. She is A-lektra: The Unmated.
ORESTES 18-35. (he can be younger or older than Electra)
Son of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra. Brother to Electra. Exiled and deprived of his inheritance by his mother, he returns to avenge his father's death. Passionate and intense. He swings between madness and sanity after committing matricide.
PALLAS ATHENA 25-50.
Sister of Apollo. Daughter of Zeus - goddess of war, wisdom and crafts. Judge at Orestes' trial for the crime of matricide. She creates the first jury in Athens.
Brother of Athena. God of the oracle at Delphi. He commanded Orestes to slay Clytemnestra, to put right the city of Argos. He is now Orestes' tireless proponent. Witness at the trial.
