CHARACTER: Senator Dawn Alcorn
Senator Alcorn has been the principle political supporter of the Justice Reform and procuring the funding for The Haven. After a time at Harvard as a guest Professor (where she met Persy), she accepted a role as Senator after her husband’s death vacated the seat. Since then, she’s been a passionate, vocal member of the Senate, winning re-election many times. While her early work in Psychology gave her a foundation of understanding for the needs of survivors, Senator Alcorn has a widespread reputation for her clever-yet-softpoken lobbying tactics.
