He emotes this pain through his quirky sarcasm and by dancing. Reverend Shaw Moore Reverend Moore is the most powerful figure in Beaumont. He is a stern, strict, solemn man with a booming voice who runs the town with an iron fist. However he also has a tender side and is struggling with the loss of his son. Ariel Moore She is the preacher’s daughter. At first glimpse it would appear that she is the perfect girl; beautiful, perky, energetic. But look closer and you will find that she is her father’s worst nightmare. She is energetic, strong willed, sharp tongued, and aware of her sensuality.
