Letís imagine what itís like when your past was messed up. When it left you scarred for the rest of your life, but with nobody there to understand. Take a moment to feel what itís like to suffer in silence from your past, with the only ones at your side being those who suffered from their own pasts. Perhaps youíve been wanting to shout out to the world, desperate for someone to hear your cries of help, but youíre left unheard. When they look at you, they see nothing but just another outcast, a stranger who will never be able to function in this society normally. They can only see what your past has turned you into, and they donít like what they see. They donít see that you need help. A gruesome thing to imagine, right?
Letís look at those three. They donít need to wonder what itís like to live with open wounds from the past, they know what itís like. They have been through the pain and suffer from their wounds. Maybe, if they hadnít suffered from their pasts, they wouldíve been just like you, normal.
Letís look at each one of those three individually.
First of all, thereís Maria. Sheís the only woman from this group, as you have already noticed. She was like nothing but a toy for her parents. Great, interesting and new only at the beginning, until she became boring and uninteresting. They forgot to take care of her, and at a young age she was forced to take of herself. When they started to notice her again, her mere presence angered them. They started to beat her frequently, and only when after many times, the girl would run to the hospital, somebody noticed things were wrong. She was left with decreased eyesight and a scar at her right eye, along with many other scars across her body.
Next we have Damian. He grew up in a poor family with four siblings, him being the youngest one. Rarely did his parents have enough to feed them all, and when there wasnít enough for all of the children, one or more would have to go to sleep without anything to eat. Being the youngest one, Damian was often forgotten and usually the one sent to bed without food. He desperately tried to remember them about his place in the family, but with no success. He ended up stealing his own food and getting in fights for it, living on the street. When he would be caught heíd be too embarrassed to tell the truth and just laugh it off, hiding his serious troubles behind jokes. Soon he grew a habit of making jokes, trying to laugh when things got worse. As a thief there would be no option he would fit in with the rest of the people, and so he sought for those who could understand him, ending up with the other two.
Last but certainly not least, thereís Ramses. Ah yes, perhaps you remember his name from something. You see, the year is 2038 currently, and a war was won a while ago, and this man served in that exact same war thanks to the cruel, military service that has been brought back. He was forced to leave behind his beloved wife, promising her he would come back alive and fine. And so he left to fight for his country, getting his right arm ripped off brutally, and it was replaced with a mechanic prosthesis. He served well and was considered a war hero. When the war was over, one day before he would get back home to his beloved wife, she was shot, and the only thing that had been worth fighting for was lost forever to him. He found no place outside the battlefield anymore, and ended up with our two friends, finding their presence better than those of the people who considered him a hero and praised him for what he had done.
You would say those three are lost, wouldnít you? So, itís up to you and your two comrades to find them, chase them, lock them away in a place you and the government think theyíre supposed to be. But what if you find what made them this way? What if you find out their past and start to understand how they got like this? What if you see that thereís more to them than just what everyone else sees? If you realized that these three are messed up, but not yet damaged beyond repair? Will you be willing and able to give them the time and opportunity to heal from their pasts? Perhaps all they need, is someone who can help them to become the way theyíre supposed to be, and maybe you and your friends are the only ones who can give them the help they need.
Their fate lies in the hands of you and your comrades.
So tell me, what will you do?
