  • Chase will play Sheriff Kean, a man with an intimidating presence who keeps the local kids on edge. He lost his son to the competition and is hellbent on putting an end to the game for good.

He has more of a chance than anyone to escape Carp but appreciates where he's at in life at the moment - especially now that he's done with high school forever. He would support Heather and Natalie (Ashlei Sharpe Chestnut) no matter what but is very worried when both join the competition.
