The Mysterious Benefactor is the one who gave your character the tuition money to get into Hollywood U. The only way they communicate with you at first is by leaving letters for your character. They occasionally send letters to other people in your entourage, too.
Character's Backstory Edit
The Mysterious Benefactor, for reasons of their own, has financed the tuition of quite a few students at Hollywood U, including your character and certain other members of your entourage. They help you when you are in trouble, and they seem to have an uncanny knowledge of when the MC needs money or other items.
Personality and Characteristics Edit
The Mysterious Benefactor is generally a positive influence on your character, sending you letters with instructions for moves that will help both you and Hollywood U. They seem to know everything that's happening with your character. While they do seem to be confident that your character will succeed in Hollywood, they do have limits-- after the fiasco with Crash and the tank at the beginning of your filming of Clash at Sunset, your Benefactor sent a strongly worded letter to let you know they were very displeased with you.
Their identity is revealed in Broken Circle when the MC confronts the Benefactor who is behind a closed curtain.
Like the name implies, the Mysterious Benefactor is a mystery-- since they only communicate with your character through letters, your character does not know what they look like until their identity is revealed.
