Background

As could be seen by the various electronic widgets that her mother had to buy again and a again during her youth, Lindsey was very fond of taking things apart to see how they worked. As time went on, she began to learn how to put things back together, pouring over books about electrical engineering and auto repair with a level of interest most girls her age held for Nancy Drew or Barbie. Her father, who was no slouch in the workshop himself, gave Lindsey little things to tinker with and her own table and tool set in the garage. In no time, she was taking three model car kits and combining them into surprisingly functional cars.

High school came and went, with Lindsey becoming the golden girl of the shop class. Her skills in design and impressive academic skills earned her a scholarship which she used to get a degree in Mechanical Engineering from MIT. She returned to Detroit and joined the development team at Ford, making her grandfather (who worked for the company himself) very proud. With a mind towards the future, she dedicated a good bit of her brain power towards developing a better hydrogen-fueled car.

Her goal, however, took far longer than she would have preferred it to. One night, Lindsey awoke with a start, the inklings of an idea tickling the back of her mind. She practically sprinted to her work desk, sending herself into a frenzy of scribbling. As she worked, a pressure began to build in her mind, getting stronger and stronger until she felt like her brain was going to explode. And, in a sense, it did.

Lindsey awoke slumped over her work desk the next morning, rocking a massive headache. She soon realized, though, that a neatly bound set of plans and a working model of the car she had worked on so fervently were sitting on her bed. Unsure as to what exactly occurred, Lindsey continued her work at Ford until she was approached by a group she had never heard of that was interested in her…talents. Although wary at first, the promise of access to a fully-stocked workshop caught her attention, and she signed up.
