❁ Luca Hayes was born in Portland, Oregon and has always had a love for photography. Her Mom worked in that field, which made it easier for her to get a grip of things. Her dad was an inspiring family doctor who was well known in the Portland region for writing about his experience as a resident at the Providence Portland Medical Centre. Her mother was, as mentioned, a photographer that travelled all over the world and had over half a million followers on her lifestyle blog. The family was very well off with their income and therefore sent Luca to the Valley Catholic School, a private prep school where she later met her now husband, Caleb.
❁ Luca's dad always pushed her to learn more. She was incredible at soaking up information. Her dad would take her to the hospital on her days off school so she could watch and learn and halfway through her sophomore year, she had already helped diagnose a bunch of patients at her dad's office and had gathered a lot of practical knowledge in the field of medicine, but this doesn't mean that she wanted to persue this carreer. It was her father who pushed her for it and fed her as much information as possible, which only made her more stressed.
❁ Caleb and Luca met at high school and became instant best friends. They shared a lot of common traits and loved the same music. The chemistry just worked and sooner or later they started going on dates. Caleb was there for Luca at her biggest lows and kept her going. Their friendship was truly irreplaceable.
❁ A few weeks after her mom travelled to russia on a photography business trip, the family suddenly lost all contact to her and started getting worried. They tried their very best to locate their beloved mom but kept hitting stones along the way. Eventually, she returned home just as nothing had happened. The family was concerned that she had nothing to say about her time in russia and started making assumptions that she was involved in something much darker than they could imagine.
Two weeks after returning home, Luca's mom suddenly passed away. It was never clear what she died of, but the autopsy revealed an underlying heart condition that was never diagnosed. Luca was devestated and sunk into a deep hole, but something still didn't add up about her mom's sudden passing and the trip to russia with the insane amount of black holes. She was determined to find out what really happened.
❁ A couple months after her mom's passing, The family decided to take a personal trip to russia to find out more information about what had happened. Caleb tagged along to keep Luca company, as she was still feeling very down most of the time because she had just lost her mom in such a tragic and unexplainable way. Luca's dad couldn't find any more information which left the family in the dark even more. They decided to travel down to south zagoria and dig a little deeper, but without luck. They met up with a bunch of different contacts their mom had in south zagoria, hoping to find answers, but hitting a brick wall every time they came close to anything. They found a bunch of old photographs of their mom meeting with a bunch of chernarussian's, exchanging something. A lot of it didn't add up at all.
❁ Just as the family seemed to be getting closer to reveal their mom's secrets, the sudden virus outbreak brought the investigations to an absolute standstill. Suddenly, the thing that mattered most was to stay safe and most importantly stay out of the cities. The three of them held up in a cabin in the woods, hoping for everything to blow over and go back to normal. Little did they know that this was the new normal for them.
