Hunter is shy and has had a crush on Danny for a while. He was nervous about changing the dynamic of their relationship. However, he accepts Danny for who he is, identity and all. He always loves when Danny expresses their gender as feminine or masculine. When Hunter gets the courage to take things further with Danny, he is stoked when he gets a yes. Despite the misunderstanding, he is glad he can call Danny his partner. Hunter has a band with Jupiter and a few other bandmates.

Jupiter is best friends with Danny and Hunter. She is in Hunter’s band and enjoys singing and loves to put her pink wig on. She is in a relationship with her girlfriend Naomi. She has consistently helped Danny figure out their feelings for Hunter and encouraged them to explore their relationship. She is a reliable friend in all the right ways.

Theo

Theo can always be found reading, and he is a close friend to Danny. He is another useful friend to seek wisdom from. He has a service dog named Macy and also encouraged Danny to do what feels right and explore these new feelings. They also have a class together. Although right now his role is minor, I look forward to seeing his relationship with everyone else grow.
