In the beginning, there was only Chaos, the gaping emptiness. Then, either all by themselves or out of the formless void sprang forth three more primordial deities. Gaea, Tartarus and Eros. One Eros was there, Gaea and Chaos were able to procreate and shaped everything that is both known and unknown in the universe.
I was born in Sussex, United Kingdom with a run of the mill, Christian family. They were strict and traditional, so I was raised in such a manner that I felt like running away so I could be free. My frie - dead friend, Artemis. She told me about the goddess she was named after. I was raised to believe there was only one God, and that was that.
I became more and more interested in the history and mythology of the ancient Greeks, and when I was a bit older, around 8, I began to believe in the Olympian Gods. My parents didn't like that. When I said they were strict, I meant crazy. They cut me and beat me for not believing in their religion and such. I didn't like that. I rebelled by breaking many rules that they put in place, still following the Gods that resided on Mount Olympus.
They kicked me out, simple as. I lived with Artemis and her family - who were non-religious, but aristocratic. They took me in as one of their own and I felt like I had my new family. In their library - the book that changed me forever. The Iliad. I learnt many things thanks to Homer. I read this for days, weeks and became obsessed with the Gods, mythology and ancient heroes.
When I was 16, I went with Artemis, now my girlfriend, to Athens, to visit Zeus' temple and amaze myself in the old world. But...
Something ate her. I watched, helplessly. I ran, and ran, and ran. I never looked back. I took off and found myself at a pier and hopped onto the first boat I could find, with a necklace that Artemis gave me in her final moments. I paddled, and paddled - finding myself in Istanbul and restocking myself with food, water and a gun. I found a better boat with an engine and headed off in a random direction, praying to Poseidon that I would make it so safety. I woke up to a beached boat and next to a lighthouse. Did Poseidon lead me to here? I put all my faith into him and climbed the lighthouse and looked into the closest city. There was... nothing.
I just stood there. Alone. I had to have had a special look on my face, I could feel it. I stood there for hours and all I did was watch. I saw a few of the living and just watched them... die.
I knew I couldn't stay there. I prayed to Athena and headed north, as far as I could before I came across a isolated log cabin and just stayed there. I prayed and prayed to the Olympian Gods hoping to stay safe and alive. I.. I think it worked, but I've had the feeling to go out for the first time in years. The Gods must have had something for me. But... what? I need answers, but for now, I've got to survive.

Emma is definitely the craziest of their family, but somehow also the nicest. She took me in whilst I was weak, practically on my knees. I don't know how I can pay her back for the small things she's done for me. Her bunnies, although not real, are very nice. She claims to have four of them and they're cute. It's best to play along with the act than to not see the bunnies. For a few days, I considered Emma to be close to family, but her 'brothers' pretty much drove me away. I still support her sometimes, and I'll never forget the time where I did more than her family back in Pushtoshka. I had to do it again in Lopatino... it was just me and her. She almost killed me and she said that if she killed me - her demons would go. I'm confused why she didn't do it. I hate injecting her, but it's the only way I know how to get rid of her demons for a short while.
Mac Tire - Friendly
Kase 'Ryker' Mcilwrath
I haven't had the chance to meet many from Mac Tire, but Ryker was the first one I've met. There isn't much to say since, well, he's mysterious. I don't know his full name, and he told me to call him Ryker normally, and Austin if we're around other people. I trust him, I just don't know enough yet.
I can tell Alkis doesn't like me. The way he acts around me, hell, says that I'm useless right in my face. I know he thinks I'm a waste of oxygen, and I don't know where I can go with him now.
