by Robert Joseph Ahola
When two well-intended but meddlesome apprentice angels
set out to prove their respective philosophical points of view, they make
the untenable error of trying to "experiment" with the very human beings
they've been entrusted to help...and manage to mess up everything! When they
do Lucifer drops in to lend a helping hand. And when the Devil enters the
equation, anything can happen. As such, Pavlov's Cats is as willful,
spontaneous and joyously unpredictable as its name implies. Suitable for
The better (or worser) Angels of our Nature.
FIDEL. An adjudicating apprentice angel who oversees the greater
responses to all the small decisions in our lives the self-appointed master of
Nanotology. A bit more conservative than his co-worker, Catrina, he tends to
worry at times, which is a very non-angelic thing to do.
CATRINA. Fidels coworker and partner in angelic
oversight, she advances her own theory that all people fall into one of two
categories dogs or cats. And she will do anything to prove they are right. Also an
apprentice angel (and therefore still in heaven on a trial basis, she is
in a hurry to move things along in the course of the human lives in their charge.
GABRIELA. An archangel in charge of these two troublesome but
well-meaning angels. (Yes she is the Gabriel of legend, before sexist
historians took over her bio. Shes just too nice to contradict anyone, and smart
enough to understand the relativity of misperception.)
LUCIFER. Even more charming, ingratiating and confusing than usual, the Prince of
Darkness needs no introduction, mainly because he prefers to make up his own.
The Human Beings.
JEREMY THORPE. A young stockbroker. A scoundrel. An opportunist, soon to be a
political power. And a generally fine human being with a great deal of potential (as soon
as he learns the difference between right and wrong).
GEORGE LANE. Jeremys well-to-do banker and friend. He sees everything clearly,
and is just now learning not to hide his light. But will he learn this quickly enough.
LETICIA McANALLEY. The female equivalent of The Plain Dealer. She is
beautiful, candid, sarcastic, vulnerable, and an exceptional fashion designer. She is also
prone to rash decisions about her life.
ELLEN LARAMOUR. Wealthy, intuitive, and nearly psychic, she has an innate
understanding of everyones inner nature even the natures of angels.
