Background Story

I could hit the wall, there was a flash of light. I landed in a shrub. I was in a park here in Century Station. Or at least I hope I was. I'm still not entirely convinced I'm not still in the Psych Lab.

Over the last four years (local time), I learned to master my abilities. I blend in. I don't make waves. I don't let people get too close. I know how people treat those with powers. I know how aliens are hated.

I had no papers, no identity. No ability to get by legally without going to the authorities. I figured that the best I could hope for from them would be incarceration. Worse yet, they might send me back to Seeron. So I hid. I made enough money to get by on. You people are so rich, you just bleed wealth without realizing it. I collected cans, bottles, pick through trash for valuable metals, stole still edible food from dumpsters. In time, I learned urban foraging, guerrilla gardening, how to fix up stuff I found in the trash, or that had been abandoned, so I could resell it. And sometimes I just plain stole.

I was nameless, faceless, a ghost moving through your skid row, your big cities, and you never knew I was there. But a bit of bad luck while stealing a pair of shoes I desperately needed for winter, and there I was in the back of a squad car, with cuffs on my wrists. It wasn't the first time I'd been arrested. But I always managed to escape in time. I saw my moment when the cops decided to stop in for donuts and coffee on their way to book me in. I turned to wax, and started to pass through the grill to the front seat of the patrol car. And that's when my luck ran out. Some lady saw me, ran in, and started shrieking to the cops about how I was melting.

Oh, I didn't give right up. I ran for it. But before I could give them the slip, a ghetto bird spotted me, and was on my tail. The police dogs sealed the deal; there was no escaping once they had my scent. It didn't take long for some Cavalier to show up, and that's when I gave up. I think they were disappointed that I gave up without a fight. But I know, you get in a lot more trouble if you fight back. Anyhow, that's how I ended up here, in Gramercy.

I've had to suffer through numerous proceedings, inquisitions, medical exams, psych evals (GOD I HATE SHRINKS!), medications, and all that. But they say the Prozac is “helping” and I'm a lot less “anxious” and “paranoid”. They talk about how much progress I've made.

I play their games. I'm good at games. I grew up in a psych lab. They've got me lojacked and alarmed. I'm monitored. I see my social worker once a week. A fucking shrink twice a week (I still won't talk to him though - I just sit there and read, and he frowns). An alarm goes off if I go off my meds. At least they stopped sending psychics in to mind read me. I kept giving the mind melters breakdowns. I just take them on a walk down through some of the darker passages through memory lane...

Now they've got a new game to play with me. Follow the rules. Play well with others. Follow orders. Trade this cell for another one, where I get more freedom. Fight “bad guys”. Sure. I can do this. Had plenty of scraps on the streets. Standing up for the little guy, the kids, making sure the truly desperate had something to eat, and a warm place to sleep. I've done it before. Fought, killed, for some shrink's amusement.

They say that if I screw up their game, that it's back to Gramercy for me. Between all the trials and everything, I've been here for a year. I'm sick of these four, escape proof walls. I'll play.
