Driver Parallel Lines : DPL MANIA

Driver Parallel Lines - Characters

TK - 1978


From out West, but home’s too slow and too dull for him. He’s 18 years old with a sense of humour that gets him into trouble and a grin that gets him out; he knows the world’s his for the taking. Soon as he can get the money together, first place he heads is New York City. It’s the only place he wants to be; the only place he can let his ambition off the leash. It’s the place where he plans to make one hell of a fortune using the one marketable skill he’s got – driving.

TK - 2006
Ray - 1978


TK’s hero – his idol. It was Ray who first taught TK to drive, back home on the farm. It was Ray – good-looking, good-natured Ray – who always had the girls after him. Ray’s five years older than TK; he came to New York as soon as he could afford the gas to get there and set up a repair shop in Queens as cover for a car-ringing outfit.

Slink - 1978


Smooth and superfly, he lives to party, be the centre of attention, tell all the stories, and make everyone laugh. Slink’s always been good at providing his clients with whatever they want – hot ladies, good booze, great sounds – but he’s also developed an ability to find other things too: guns, explosives, and cars.

Slink - 2006
The Mexican - 1978

The Mexican

Big in every sense. He loves life, partying, girls, drink, drugs, guns, bikes, cars, and adrenaline highs. He can’t help but be right in the thick of any action. Tired of the small-time, he sees New York as the place to be to strike it big and take his chance to surf the tidal wave of drugs money.

The Mexican - 2006
Bishop - 1978


Hard, professional, greedy and cunning – a loner who has trouble trusting anyone other than himself. After three tours in ‘Nam, he’s come home with new attitudes about his mind and body. Bishop is a guy who nurtures a carefully controlled ambition, together with a passion for killing and destruction.

Bishop - 2006
Candy - 1978


He’s the best planner in the business. He’s obsessed with details. He’ll work night and day figuring out the stats, the timings, the people, the weights, the distances. He thinks of everything. With Candy you get the best…but you also get the worst – apart from the body-odour, Candy just never stops moaning.

Candy - 2006
Corrigan - 1978


The leader of the gang; a totally commanding presence who knows he’s destined for great things. Relaxed, upbeat, super-confident and charming – people just can’t help opening up to Corrigan. He’s got a great smile and you trust him from the word go, but behind the smile is an amoral, ruthless man.



Works for Candy in 2006, keeps things running smoothly; keeps the money coming in and, as a trained marksman, keeps the street gangs off his back. But there’s more to her beneath the surface. Candy’s is just a stepping stone on her way to exacting a revenge she’s spent her life preparing for.

Maria - 2006
