Townes ( Jacob Fortune Lloyd)
Townes is Beth’s first love and grief. They meet for the first time at a chess tournament. At that time, Beth acknowledges that he can be easily beaten. Even if it’s the case, she listens too much to her heart and does not make many efforts during the game.
Fortunately, Townes gets some basic knowledge about chess, but he’s not necessarily the smartest character in other fields. For example, he has not even remarked that Beth is in love with him and that, despite her advances during that initial chess game.
