Julius Gerry Angry Brilliant Funny Respects Gerry's ability, and his ability to change. Starts as a racist but Julius becomes his best friend; he is too decent, too honest, too honourable to accept Ray's betrayal of the team. Puts the team first.
Other Characters Rev - a 'brainiac', deeply religious, a decent, likeable boy; offers to tutor Louie. Louie - 'white trash', from a poor background, and not a scholar; singer and dancer; open-minded – "I'm with everybody." Petey – oversensitive, self-centred, has to learn to put the team ahead of himself. Sunshine – has a personality to match his name. Blue – sees life through music; but also shows grit, determination. Ray – invented character to represent the intransigent racist.
