Rex Valin | Location: Seven Heights Penitentiary | Time: Night ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ What came next was a blinding pillar of light. Raelyn's body became engulfed in a column of light and memory that Rex needed to shield himself. But while the column of light only lasted 2 seconds, for Raelyn, it lasted almost an hour... --- Current Track: Raelyn's Theme The moment that Raelyn crushed the crystal, her vision warped and faded. She wasn't quite there anymore, but her memories came back to her like that of a ticker tape; some fleeting, if only for a moment, and others longer. Her earlier baby memories came fractured, as if she truly did not know where she came from, but her childhood revealed much. She was foster child, jumping from home to home. She enjoyed attention, sometimes getting in trouble to do so, and ultimately being handed off to the next family as a result. She never knew her real parents, and never gave it much thought. As she grew older, she learned how to use her attractiveness to her advantage. By 16, she found a family to live out until adulthood, where she became enamored in gaming. It gave her the escape she needed when she sank to trouble. She would be the important one, the hero of her story, the answer to all the problems. Before her memory of coming to the game, however, one surfaced. It was one of the last few days before the game. She was walking down the streets to meet up with a few friends, where she saw...Gale. He was being picked on by another unrecognizable figure, taller, and with brunette hair and orange eyes. A little ways away...was Rex. He was watching, but did little about it. Minding his own business. The memory faded to the day she was about to enter. She saw the memory of the legal agreement Jaz and Inna were asking about. She skimmed it, as most players tend to, but the words were there; "In the event of a total system catastrophe, you agree to have your consciousness uploaded to the system and all exterior conveniences removed..." She clicked 'agree' without a second thought. As she lay down on her bed, putting on the Occuli, her motor functions ceased, and her vision faded to white. --- The light soon faded, causing Raelyn to keel over a bit. Rex and Gale quickly caught her before she completely collapsed holding her up slightly. Rex looked to Dot. "It's quite alright!" Uncle Dot reassured. "Having a large memory laspe of that scale is taxing on anyone. She'll be feeling almost as if she's having a slight hangover for sometime, but others come around quicker. She'll be fine." Rex turned to Raelyn herself. "You alright?"
