Amanda Collin (Mother)
As the android Mother, Collin's character has been tasked to raise human children on a faraway planet. There, she'll try to keep them from believing in the unreal since religious differences were the cause of Earth's destruction. She hopes that her family will serve as a positive example for a peaceful "technocratic colony." But she struggles with her duty to shape the minds of the young humans and begins uncovering secrets from her own programming that can both protect and destroy her family.

Abubakar Salim (Father)
As Father, the second android raising human children, Salim's character is devoted both to his human children as well as Mother. Less complex than Mother, Father is notably wise and patient making him a valuable asset to the family's survival. Always there when you need him, Father struggles with trying to be funny — one thing he wants to be in the eyes of Mother and his children.
Winta McGrath (Campion)
Twelve-year-old Campion has been raised by Mother and Father since his birth. Upon the arrival of a human ship from Earth, he is exposed to religion for the first time forcing him to question if his android parents really know what's best for him.

Charismatic soldier Marcus was the ultimate survivor on Earth, and in order to escape the planet, he and wife Sue made a dangerous choice that must be kept a secret. Upon their arrival in the new world, Marcus struggles with reconciling his past sins and continues embracing his deadly instincts.
Niamh Algar (Sue)
This strong, resourceful combat medic ultimately decides to leave Earth for the new world at husband Marcus' urging. Once she gets to the new planet, fear of the unknown and unforeseen dangers threaten to ruin the promise of a better life. She'll question if the choice to leave home was worth it.
Felix Jamieson (Paul)
As the 12-year-old son of Sue and Marcus, Paul's faith in both his religion and his father are strong. After feeling like an outsider on Earth, the boy finds himself in a "complicated" friendship and rivalry with Campion. In their time getting to know one another, Paul and Campion learn from and challenge each other.
Ethan Hazzard (Hunter)
The highly intelligent 17-year-old was the son of a man on Earth who held high-ranking power among the religious order. Now in a new world and without the benefit of his father's position, Hunter will have to adapt to his new role as an everyday member of society.
Jordan Loughran (Tempest)
After arriving in the new world, the 17-year-old who never had a connection to her family's religion, finds herself revering Mother and Father as superior beings. She soon discovers that she's pregnant as a result of rape by one of the high-ranking members of her former church.

This 15-year-old is a "burgeoning warrior" who is doing her best to find a place in the new world.
