Somehow I don't think Lindelof's adaptation semantics will pass muster with Moore. He famously hated and was against the Watchmen prequel comics and couldn't have been happy about the story being brought into the DC Universe proper.

That Hashtag Show reports the following character details:

Angela Abraham: African-American female cop. Independent and intelligent, she’s also a realist. She’s married to Cal, with whom she has a daughter and is fiercely protective of them both.
Cal Abraham: African-American male who is the stay-at-home husband of Angela. While he seems at home as the king of his castle and being a loving husband and father, it’s clear his past has a different story to tell.
Looking Glass: A good looking cop, the native Oklahoman isn’t simple as his rural accent makes him appear to be. A top interrogator and behavioral scientist, he may also be a bit of a sociopath.
Panda: An ethnic desk cop, he’s cynical and tough and puts his job first. Not a friend to many, he uses comedy to keep people at bay.
Red Scare: Mafioso, track suit wearing cop. His Russian accent lends to his abrasiveness.
Pirate Jenny: An androgynous and lustful bisexual cop, Jenny is an anarchist at heart.
Jane Crawford: The wife of the police chief, Judd, Jane is a veterinarian who’s sharper than her guarded persona lets on.
Old Man: A former cop who is still an imposing figure despite his age.

I'm hoping it's just being very secretive. Only some keywords in the bios remind of certain characters, like sociopathic interrogator makes me think of Rorschach or Old Man makes me think of Hollis Mason. I don't know. Hopefully, it all works out for the best.
