The Lester family - mainly blue collar working sorts, like McCulloch factory foreman Karl Lester. While there are no recognized family heads like there were in Prosperity, this being 1994, Karl is the oldest of the Lesters currently in Havasu. He has two younger siblings that also reside in town: Amber (40s) who owns and operates Lester's Auto, and another sibling that can be a PC in a working class or criminal role (age/gender negotiable).
Character Options: Karl and Claire have a Senior kid, but they could have had twins, and have one adult child already. Beth already has Senior twins (but not from Karl!), but Donna could have a Senior kid (or twins) with Karl. Amber could use kids of either type. Sebastian has room for Senior kids.

Karl Lester (Central Casting)Role: Oldest Lester, Factory foreman
Age: Late 40s
Played by: Central Casting
He's a pretty decent guy when he's sober. Problem is, he's rarely sober. A good man at heart ruled by cravings and addictions. Keeps trying to be a good Dad/husband and failing.
Claire Lester (Central Casting)Role: Hotel manager, Karl's 1st ex
Played by: Central Casting
Was a desk clerk at the Nautical Inn when they got married. The most responsible and mature of Karl's exes and his One True Love. Their marriage blew up when Beth had twins and said they were his. Ironically, they weren't. She's a tough but fair mother.
Beth Lester (Central Casting)Role: Bartender at Kokomo's, Karl's 2nd ex
Played by: Central Casting
Karl's first foray into the land of crazy pussy blew up his first marriage. He'd been faithful until a drunken night with Beth, and never saw her again. Then she showed up with twins she said were his. After Claire divorced him, he married Beth and began his downward spiral. She's flighty, manic, and very charming. Terrible mother, great bartender. After a paternity test proved her twins were Vincent Marchant's, Karl divorced her and she basically 'sold' the boys to Robert Marchant.
Mother of twin sons Landon and Lucas who just happen to not be Karl Lester's. They are Vincent Marchant's bastards. So divorce happened when the boys were twelve and Beth's set up comfortably by Robert Marchant while her now teenage boys are being groomed to be Marchants.
Donna Lester (Central Casting)Role: Stripper, Karl's 3rd ex
Played by: Central Casting
A stripper Karl has had an on-and-off again fling with ever since Claire left. He married her briefly, but it didn't last. She's a bit ditzy and immature but means well.
Amber Lester (Central Casting)Role: Owner/Mechanic of Lester's Auto, Karl's sister
Played by: Central Casting
Karl's tough-as-nails baby sister and owner of the family auto shop. Karl dreamed of being management at McCulloch, so Amber took over the shop. A tomboy and grease monkey, she's a damn good mechanic, a strong woman and a capable but easy-going mother. Often called 'The Good Lester'.
Sebastian Lester (Archetype)Role: Horse Trainer/Karl's younger brother
Played by: Scholar/Rufus Sewell
As the Lesters didn't have enough money to send him to Vet or grad school, Sebastian had to content himself with an AA from the community college and a lot of hands-on experience raising and training horses as taught to him by his predecessor at the Ortiz Stables. The Ortiz Family are rich, so can afford to keep Sebastian employed regularly, and he also accepts work on the side when he has time for it. He rents a little house from one of their equally rich neighbors; it's nothing much, but it has AC and it means he doesn't share walls with anyone, which is how he likes it.
Morrison Lester (Archetype)Role: Factory Worker/Boxer
Played by: Beast/Thore Scholermann
Morrison is Karl's eldest with Claire, his first wife. He works at the factory during the day and is an aspiring fighter. He's had a number of amateur fights (not to mention bar brawls, parking lot scuffles, etc)
Danielle "Dani" Lester (Archetype)Role: Mechanic/Assistant Manager at Lester's Auto
Played by: Adherent/Elona Lebedeva
A graduate of the community college with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Business and Entrepreneurship along with an Automotive Technology Certification, Dani has followed in the footsteps of her mother, Amber, into Grease Monkeydom. As one of Amber's older children, she helps run the family business, acting as Assistant Manager and Mechanic at Lester's Auto. She has that typical Lester temper that's gotten her into her fair share of fights and trouble, and that shitty attitude of hers only adds more fuel to the fire. She doesn't have a lot of care, concern, or respect for much of anyone outside of the family or what few friends she has. Dani has her own modest home on Vagabond Drive, close to Route-95 on the southeastern outskirts of town, where she has her privacy and ability to do whatever the hell she wants on her own time. Aside from her overall sparkling personality, Dani does take after her mother in some aspects: good mechanic and built Ford tough. There's a decent Lester in there. Somewhere.
Lennon Lester (Unknown)Role: High School Senior
Played by: Bravo/Margot Robbie
Lennon is Karl's youngest with Claire, and the younger sister to Morrison Lester. She's currently a high school senior, which means that she's supposed to be tending to all the things good little teenagers do. She's a school yard bully, picking on others, beating them up and getting into fights with anyone that crosses her. One thing that she does that might seem like it'd soften her is she's artistic, a photographer, but it really doesn't seem to have softened her attitude at all. As much of a bully as she is, she can be slick, all flattery, all flirt, when the mood strikes her. It doesn't always work out for the target, though.
Dick Lester (Archetype)Role: Karl + Donna's Son
Played by: The Crusader
Amy Lester (Archetype)Role: High School Senior
Played by: Penitent
Amy is Amber's daughter and Dani's little sister, she's got the Lester temper and an athletic bent. She's all too easily fallen into that role of school yard bully along with her cousin Lennon.
Jonny Lester (Archetype)Role: Son of Sebastian Lester
Twin to Marsha
Played by: Adam Driver/Heretic
Marsha Lester (Archetype)Role: Daughter of Sebastian Lester
Twin to Jonny
Played by: Kristen Stewart/Perfectionist
