If you answered mostly A’s:
You would be Kali. Now eighteen years old, Kali grew up in New York City with her mom; her dad took off before she was born. Her mom remarried and Kali has three little half-sisters under the age of eight. She likes tea and hates people. She is not a fan of (1) being stared at, (2) being told what to do, (3) nearly drowning in the subway, or (4) the end of the world.
If you answered mostly B’s:
You would be Tigre. Tigre was born and raised in Santiago, Chile, and works as a vet’s assistant when he’s not in school. He is just coming out of a long relationship with a fairly bossy girlfriend. He likes it when other people make decisions for him. He doesn’t like it when he feels storms coming, blacks out, and then wakes up miles and miles from home.
If you answered mostly C’s:
You would be Venus. Venus is one of the world’s biggest pop stars. She began her meteoric rise to fame when she was only thirteen years old. Now seventeen, she’s beginning to wonder exactly who’s in charge of her image—her, her domineering mother, or her manager? She’s sad that all of humanity seems to have disappeared…but on the plus side, it does mean no more paparazzi.
If you answered mostly D’s:
You would be Gus. A normal, introspective sci-fi geek, Gus lives with his older brother Andrew in Los Angeles, California. Their parents were killed in a car crash three years ago, when Gus was fourteen. Sometimes Gus helps Andrew on his backstage theatre gigs. He loves Venus’s music, but figures she’d be pretty stuck-up in person. The most important thing in the world to him is the people he loves.
If you answered mostly E’s:
You would be Amon, the mysterious guy from Egypt. And if you’re Amon, then you already know what’s going on, don’t you?
