Background

If asked, Gabriella honestly couldn’t say what her hometown was – or her home country, for that matter. Her parents were goodwill ambassadors with the UN, so she travelled around constantly as a child. She loved every minute of it, learning things about new cultures and meeting new people as she went. Once she was old enough, she started working with her parents, learning to appreciate the feeling of accomplishment she received by helping others in need.

When she was sixteen, Gabriella and her parents arrived in Mexico City. The Day of the Dead festivities were just beginning as they made their way to their hotel, and Gabriella was able to talk her parents in letting her go look around by herself for a bit. They agreed, and she made her way out into the crowded streets. Much to her parents’ concern, though, she did not return that night.

While her parents fretted, Gabriella was quite safe, sitting in a café not too far away with a well-dressed man who wore a skull mask (which, at closer observation, wasn’t a mask at all). This man, of course, was not a man, but a god; Mictlantecuhtli in particular. He had scooped up Gabriella from the crowd and revealed a number of things to her. Firstly, her parents weren’t her real parents; she had been born right here in Mexico City. Secondly, her real mother was one of his daughters, thus making her his granddaughter. Thirdly, he said that most of the world had forgotten the dead, and that someone must speak up for those who have not entered Mictlan yet. Willing to help, Gabriella agreed to be that person. Mictlantecuhtli gave her a bony smile, then kissed her on the forehead.

The next morning, Gabriella found herself in her bed at the hotel. She readied herself for a scolding from her parents, but wasn’t ready for the faint glow that came from her eyes when she looked in the mirror…or the ghostly woman who walked out of the bathroom and through the door. She quickly rushed out of the room and told her parents everything. Much to her surprise, they were accepting of this news; they had been expecting it, in fact, as they had been asked by the god to take care of her.

Gabriella continued to travel with her family, helping both the living and the dead as she went. Now eighteen, she finds herself in California, waiting to see what comes over the horizon next.
