Charlie Kane - The Politician

Charlie Kane

“It can be arranged. It’s just a matter of acceptable terms.”

When the press asks if Charlie is planning a run for national office, he smiles and says the he’s focused on the important issues. The truth is that he would love to launch his campaign, but right now the most important issue is preventing the end of the world without causing a panic. To do this, he’s been calling in favors across the country. Most recently, Charlie’s stopped in San Francisco to visit Hearst Castle. With the help of his friends and his finances, Charlie believes he can fix this problem without sacrificing a single vote.

But as she has learned more of its true nature, she has become convinced that a growing evil threatens the world, and that the Silver Twilight will play a role in that threat.
