Who Are These People?

January 14, 2016

 

Let's get to know the main characters from Good Enough.

 

Camisha Ann “Cami” Robbins-

Remarkably independent, compassionate and slightly neurotic, Cami Robbin’s strength is in her ability to keep on going, no matter what her life throws at her - even an absolutely hopeless mother- and to uphold her dignity throughout.  She tests the conventions of who should love whom, leading her on a journey towards an acute self-realization. She is the glue that holds the whole operation together.

 

Lennox “Ali” Robinson-

Tall, dark, handsome and well educated Lennox Ali Robinson is the son of a wealthy, well-established family.  Lennox/Ali is Cami’s male counterpart and unseemingly ideal match in love.  Ambitious, intelligent and forthright, he has a tendency to judge too hastily and harshly, and his high birth and wealth make him overly proud and overly conscious of his social status.  He initially dwells more on how unsuitable a match Camisha is, than on her other positive attributes. 

 

Camilla Robbins-

She’s the embodiment of deep contradictions: bad and beautiful, holy and sinful, conventional and radical. Camilla is Camisha's mother and name-sake.  She has a generally pessimistic view of humankind and is unapologetic about wielding the power of her sexuality and sheer intelligence, to survive. She's a whip-smart beauty who doesn't suffer fools.  Cami is mostly confounded by her mother, and struggles to understand her.  Camilla is flawed, but she understands herself in a way very few do— you’ll find no damsel in distress here.

 

Oliver Barnett-

Cami’s dreadlock clad, best friend and confidant.  He is a loving, free spirit who thinks for himself and only does what he wants to do.  Oliver doesn’t always know what he is doing with his life; he just tries to be optimistic about it.  He’s fiercely loyal to Cami and Camilla and serves as the “man of the house”. Outside of his concerns for Cami’s happiness, his worries are few.  Oliver is a multi-talented charmer who cares nothing about the trappings of society.  Oliver and Cami share a stunning unconditional love, forged through hard times and a shared tumultuous childhood.  They know each other completely. 

 

Lacey Robinson-

Lacey is the ultra glamourous and spoiled baby sister of Lennox “Ali” Robinson. She’s tempestuous, self-obsessed and sharply intelligent.  Quick-witted, her sharp tongue and tendency to make hasty judgments often lead her astray.  Initially she inspires terror and a great amount of trepidation in Cami and manipulates her big brother, Lennox “Ali” and Oliver (Cami’s best friend and confidant) to get exactly what she wants from them.  It’s her relationship with the latter that eventually consumes the both of them, uncovering her true colors and layers.
