Squidge was born in Chi-Town, a loyal citizen of the Coalition. Her psionic potential was spotted early on, and her parents dutifully registered her. This meant she had legal status, but it was the status of a secondhand citizen. Even her parents came under additional scrutiny, for having given birth to a potentially dangerous mutant.

By the time she was about finished with her vocational training, she was also about done with her situation. She was of a relatively gentle disposition, but there was only one way for a psychic to gain an easier life in the Coalition States...and that was to join the Psi-Battalion of the military. At first it wasn't even THAT bad. Sure she was still looked on with some fear and loathing by normal soldiers but that was nothing new, and here there were others like her. The psi-hounds were friendly and a joy to work with. Their psi-stalker handlers were...scarier. There were other psychic operatives as well, and here...alone of all places...she was encouraged to develop her abilities for the good of humankind.

It wasn't until later that she learned what that really meant.

Her telepathic abilities made her ideally suited for interrogations. However, in probing minds for secrets, she couldn't help but notice how many of these 'threats to humanity' were nothing of the sort. Their bodies sometimes looked different, but their minds were hauntingly similar. Most of them didn't want anything to do with the Coalition, or humanity, let alone to destroy them.

And then the war started.

The campaign and siege against Tolkeen showed Squidge just how bad war was. Not just because of the bloodshed and death and horror, but because of what it made otherwise good people do, and feel. It was a factory of monsters, and too many of them were just as human as she was. Squidge decided...she couldn't stop the war, but that didn't mean she had to fight in it.

Squidge made unlikely allies with one of the psi-stalkers in her unit...a feral that had been captured young, but who still remembered living free, named Phere. With Phere's stealth and ferocity, and her own psionic gifts, they managed to break into a Coalition armory and grab a few choice pieces before making good an escape. Phere came with her, the two having bonded over their time in service together along with their shared experience in getting away.

Once away from the Coalition, she adopted a nickname in place of her given name and looked for a good place to lay low with Phere until the Coalition forgot about them.

A little place called Prince's Landing.
