Born in Los Angeles, California in 1998. Richard Nelson Drucker was born with music in his blood. He is a great musician and singer. He pays attention in school only as much as he has to, in order to get his parents to continue to buy him the instruments and equipment he needs to move forward in his music career. The son of Marco’s sister Rita, he is Esperanza’s first cousin. Ricky believes music can unite nations and people. But Ricky also believes that the Alnwicks are Vampires, and he really doesn't like the undead. Prejudice is never good, even if we’re talking about Vampires, and Ricky’s disdain for James and the Alnwick clan could prove complicated for him as our story unfolds.
Actor, singer, songwriter Nick Merico visually inspires the apparently chill cousin of Esperanza, artist Ricky Drucker, whose underlying disdain for James, the Alnwicks and Vampires in general, could get him in trouble in the long run.
Sarah is a cute, bubbly sixteen year old girl who goes to the same high school as the Alnwick family and Ricky. She is an only child and a bit lonely, always open to meeting new people. Her parents are lawyers in the music industry, and worked with Ricky’s parents on a project when they were younger. She has a good friendship going with Ricky, which we get the sense could turn into something else later on. But she also has a massive crush on James, which we get the sense could get her into trouble later on.
Talented young actress Zoey Burger (Runaway, Wordplay) visually inspires Esperanza's best friend, and potential troublemaker, Sarah Nickelson in Daylight Sucks.
