Nathan Jackson

One of the viewpoint characters, Nathan is on vacation at the park along with his family.

Holly Jackson

Nathan's sister and another viewpoint character.
  • Cool Big Sis: Was this to Nathan when they were younger; "Night On Sorna" somewhat restores it.
  • Domestic Abuse: Is victim to emotional and psychological abuse from James.
  • Destructive Romance: Is in this kind of relationship with James: he abuses her publicly, abandons her on a date so that he could talk to his friends, and, in general, makes her life miserable.
    • It's implied that, initially, they were on much better terms, but over the last six months, he's had a turn for the worst. She planned to take him to Prehistoric Park to try and rekindle their romance, but it's obvious that that ship has already sailed by the time they arrive at the park.
      • Furthermore, Nathan's thoughts indicate that James has always been a problem, so it's more of a case of something that was already bad getting worse.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Feels this way toward a pair of terror birds, because they have no problems with their relationship, unlike hers.
  • Love Martyr: Goes out of her way for her Bastard Boyfriend, despite his abusive demeanour.
  • Nice Girl
  • The Woobie: She doesn't like James AT ALL, but puts up with him because she'd become a social pariah if she dumped him.

Gerard

Nathan and Holly's uncle. He's not very nice.
  • Big Brother Bully: Is emotionally abusive of his sister Linda (Nathan and Holly's mom), and takes advantage of her whenever he can.
    • Prior to the story, he guilt-tripped Linda into paying the most out of several people to get his son Jack an iPad for Christmas, because she didn't get Jack anything for his birthday. For reference, none of Jack's cousins got any presents from their aunts and uncles.
      • To make things even worse, at the time, Linda's family was experiencing economic problems (her husband was at risk of being laid off and her boss had refused to give her a raise), while Gerard and his wife had no such problems, due to both working high-paying jobs.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: However much of a scumbag Gerard is, even he agrees that James is an ass.
  • Evil Uncle: When he's with Nathan, he proves to be apathetic about Nathan's existence at best and out-and-out mocking him at worst; he's dismissive of his love of prehistoric creatures, mockingly calls him "Harry Potter" (because Nathan wears glasses that are slightly oversized), and publically humiliates him for wanting to follow the rules after Jack hits the glass on the Gigantophis tank to get a reaction out of the snake.
    • Laser-Guided Karma: The last one gets him humiliated when one of the park's staff calls him out on letting his son tap the glass.
  • Entitled Bastard: Hell yes!
  • Hate Sink: UpToEleven: There is practically nothing, aside from a few Pet the Dog moments, in the series that indicates he's anything other than a selfish, emotionally manipulative, entitled bastard.
  • Jerkass: Oh, yes.
  • Pet the Dog: Gets a couple of moments. He's visibly unnerved when his wife mocks Nathan's speech impediment and at least tried to be sympathetic about the death of his sister's dog.

James

Holly's boyfriend. He's also not very nice.
  • Bastard Boyfriend: In spades. He clearly enjoys having Holly under his thumb, but is obviously not interested in her the way she is in him.
    • He's extremely controlling and forces Holly to do what he wants her to do.
    • He abandons her after she plans a picnic during the sunset so he can talk to his friends.
    • He also mocked her aunt's dead dog, which Holly really happened to like.
    • At Holly's 18th birthday party (three weeks prior to the story), he deliberately crashed the family car into the garage.
  • Domestic Abuse: Emotionally and psychologically abuses Holly.
  • Hate Sink: Up to Eleven: He outclasses Gerard in this department. At least Gerard can act civil when he wants to. James doesn't even have that going for him.
    • Word of God confirms this was deliberate: in Nathanoraptor's own words, he's "a character you could read one line of and just think 'scum'".
  • Jerkass: Is extremely rude to people/animals that annoy him.
  • Kick the Dog: Treats it as his daily routine.

Linda Jackson

Nathan and Holly's mother and another viewpoint character.

Liz

Nathan and Holly's aunt and Gerard's wife.

Jack

Nathan and Holly's younger cousin and Lauren's brother.
  • Spoiled Brat
  • What an Idiot!: Taps on the glass wall of the Gigantophis exhibit, because the snake isn't doing anything, in spite of the fact there is a very obvious sign that warns against this. Gerard gets chewed out for letting him do this.

Lauren

Nathan and Holly's cousin and Jack's sister.
