Mr. Goldman is a lumbering, heavyset man who dresses himself in the finest suits while adding flare via jewelry pieces seen from head to toe.
He leverages his money and power to do what he wants, whether it be to fund the football program at his son’s high school to get Ezra on a team or to add Alayna to his family.
He makes it all work thanks to his charming, charismatic, and assertive personality.

Breakdown:
He’s a ball of energy always making grand gestures to pull the spotlight off his older sister, despite his admiration of her.
