Altera dedicated her life to advancing human regenerative abilities, from repairing damaged tissues and organs to reversing the aging process. She achieved a significant breakthrough when her experimental treatments showed promise on animals, leading to authorization for trials on human volunteers. Despite initial results, they fell short of her expectations. Using her own blood as a testing source she started to improve the formula, striving to refine the formula to bridge the gaps, convinced that success was within reach. She was sure she was close - just a step away from it.
However, everything changed on Day Zero, a cataclysmic event that shook the world. Tragically, her husband suffered mortal injuries during the events of the apocalypse, Altera retreated into her laboratory with him where she desperately administered her remedy, only to witness its ineffectiveness. Her husband passed away in her arms, his final moments spent with her. Devastated by his loss, she resolved to continue her research in his memory, driven by the desire to spare others from the pain of untimely departures.She remained in her laboratory alongside a few other surviving scientist colleagues where she continued her work to approve her formula, continually experimenting with her blood.
As the world slowly stabilized in the wake of the crisis, most of Altera’s colleagues scattered across the country in search of their families. Only a few remained, including her sister Dalia, who served as the head of lab security before the end days. Dalia provided Altera and the rest of the team with prototype armors, weapons, and invaluable guidance on how to protect themselves.
During this time, Altera’s research on her remedy made significant strides. Yet, a few key ingredients remained elusive. In her pursuit, she ventured on scavenging expeditions alongside her sister, scouring nearby labs, shops, and research centers. Each day brought them closer to her goal, but their fortune took a turn when they crossed paths with a group of raiders.
With Dalia’s assistance, they narrowly escaped, but not without a heavy toll on Altera, who suffered a mortal wound and had mere minutes left to live. Time was rapidly slipping away, and her unfinished formula was her last glimmer of hope. Under Dalia’s care, Altera experienced a miraculous turn of events; the formula inexplicably began to work. She stabilized, and her wound visibly started to heal. She was left in bewildered astonishment, pondering why it was effective for her but not for others.
As time passed, Altera noticed further unusual changes. Her formula exhibited unexpected side effects; not only did it completely heal her after sufficient rest, but it also left her devoid of any scar tissue. Moreover, she appeared to undergo a reverse aging process, a remarkable transformation she had never anticipated. Upon scrutinizing her cells under a microscope, she confirmed her observations. Additionally, she acquired an unprecedented level of resilience, further deepening the mysteries surrounding her formula.
Attempts to apply the formula to her colleagues yielded no remarkable results, save for her sister, Dalia, who exhibited exceptional responses… One thing was clear: she needed more equipment to make the formula accessible to everyone. Untrusting of the emerging factions, she adopted the life of a mercenary to move freely, accumulate resources, and gather information.
Soon, a group of scavenging traders enlisted her as their protector, divulging their mission to unearth a hidden military bunker filled with technology and equipment. However, they omitted critical details about the bunker’s inhabitants. Armed with a meticulous plan, they infiltrated the facility under the cover of darkness, raiding the storage. Yet, they were caught off guard by the facility’s residents, sparking a chaotic confrontation.
During the intense skirmish, a stray bullet found its way into a crate filled with explosives, triggering a colossal explosion that claimed the lives of all but Altera. Her experimental formula miraculously extended her life, preventing instant death. However, she remained trapped beneath the wreckage caused by the blast, her fate hanging in the balance.
As her blood seeped into the ground, Altera noticed something extraordinary through the debris: the stolen crates contained a mysterious, luminous substance, as if it pulsed with an energetic flow. Curiosity compelled her to extract a small fragment for closer examination. To her amazement, a white, radiant energy materialized within. Then, the unexpected occurred; her flowing blood met the substance, and the energy stored within discharged in a yellowish, electric-like glow, as though it served as a conduit. It swiftly reached her wound and entered her, as if she were absorbing its energy.
A newfound, unimaginable strength coursed through her body, and her wound began to heal at an unnatural pace. With this newfound vigor, she managed to free herself from the wreckage. This revelation infused her with fresh ideas and a strengthened determination to harness this newfound power and complete her formula.
From that point onward, her mercenary journey continued, with Altera scouring the world for more Purified Heronium to realize her formula’s full potential.
