Age 18, grew up with his family on the street and ran from it after a tragic incident with his father. Years later he is preparing to move out of Ipo and begin a career in fashion design, but first he must navigate the pressure of being a father figure to his young nephews and a role model to everyone else at Ipo.
Age 16, arrived to Ipo after four years of selling candy on buses and washing up in public restrooms. He had never seen a classroom before he arrived here, and now he is attending school and plans to become a chef. But Juan is distracted by fantasies of reuniting with his father, who has failed to visit him even once at Ipo.
Age 10, ran away from home six months ago, and he’s now stuck in a custody battle between Ipo and his parents, who are unfit to raise him yet can’t bear to give him up. His dad has made two visits: during the first he told his son when his birthday was, and five months later he re-appeared to celebrate it.
Age 12, is Ipo’s underdog, a tender and funny spirit who isn’t quite tough enough to fit in with the other boys but professes an unconditional love for them.He is tested when Ipo decides to move him to the bigger kids house, forcing him to grow up faster than he’d expected.
