August is one of Kirsten’s closet friends in the Traveling Symphony. He is the second violin and has only recently begun acting with the Symphony. He also writes poetry in secret. The child of military parents, August moved around often in the pre-collapse world, and television had been a constant in his life. He therefore misses television terribly and remembers shows in great detail, and he collects TV Guides after the collapse. He and Kirsten break into houses together, and the two have a pact to remain only friends and nothing more.
