Throughout the game, Mark can date and fall in love with six characters. Depending on the choice of the player, romancing each of these characters can lead to sex and a happy ending:
- Ian Manachevitz
- Ian is one of Mark’s roommate and best friend. He studies zoology at Orlin University and wishes to pursue graduate studies in Brazil to study capuchin monkeys. Ian is a slacker college student who rarely takes anything seriously. He has an on-again, off-again relationship with Zoe. Ian is confused about his sexuality: he has feelings for Mark but keeps dating and hooking up with girls.
- Alex Davies
- Alex is Mark’s anatomy professor. He is in the running for a tenure position at Orlin University. Although he likes teaching, he is not a big fan of academia and its nasty politics. He is interested in Mark but wants to keep things professional between them. Alex mentions that coming out ranks among the most difficult things he has done in his life, along with giving a bath to his cat.
- Bradley Melnick (Brad)
- Brad plays as the quarterback in the Orlin Otters, the Orlin University football team, and is planning to join the NFL once he graduates. He is not very good at school and risks losing his scholarship due to his poor grades. Mark is hired as his English tutor. Brad hides his sexuality because of his religious background and his brother’s overprotective nature.
- Jed Zhou
- Jed is Mark’s loud neighbor and the singer of the punk band The Dirty Loofahs. He is an anti-conformist and believes that everyone should be themselves. He does not want to “sell out” the identity of his band for success. He has no problem being naked in public and having sex with strangers, which comes as a surprise to Mark.
- Philbert Healy (Phil)
- Phil is a marine who just came back from boot camp. He is currently in the infantry school and is being considered for Recon program. He is very disciplined, a little nerdy, and he loves trivia quiz. Phil is Penny’s cousin. Penny tries to set him up with Mark.
