Meet the cast:
A man of few words! Like many other natives of Potcrock Isle, John lived beneath the earth’s surface for over 40 years, with no knowledge of the outside world. After taking on the role of a father figure for Sam, his life would never be the same again… As a miner John is adept at handling explosives and has strong combat skills to fight off the creatures which inhabit the world of Eastward.
Sam was discovered by miner John, under mysterious circumstances, in a tank deep underground… Although she may be small, Sam can wield special kinetic powers, the extent of which is still unknown even to her! She’s a brave little girl with a big heart, an open-mind and a cheeky personality!
New Dam City’s princess and nerd technician. Alva gave up a life of luxury and riches in pursuit of her passion in creating inventions to help others. She runs a lab alongside her ranger girlfriend Isabel, where she spends her time tinkering with a rocket. She’s lively, smart and adored by all.
While he may look like a punky little kid, Solomon is rumoured to be a ‘Destroyer’ - one of those who first brought death to humanity. Throughout Sam and John’s journey, Solomon’s strength and threat becomes more apparent, until his menacing presence becomes unavoidable...
