Lena never belonged, from the day she was born. Her mother didn’t want her. She had set up an adoption with a couple whom she thought would be perfect for the little girl to grow up with. They backed out last minute, didn’t show up when she was born and Lena’s mother didn’t want to see her. She couldn’t take care of a child. Lena was never officially given a name and thus the hospital named her, giving her mother’s last name. Lena was put into foster care. She grew up in Ventura, a small beach town north of LA. Place in the middle of nowhere. No one knew her. No one cared. She constantly fought with her foster parents and they even tried to switch her to a different home.
Lena had friends but didn’t care much for them. She tried to find escape through music and games. As soon as she could get out of the home, she went to L.A. to follow a career in music. It took her awhile. She ended up working at a liquor store. She ended up being a sit in drummer at a bar, something she got one night while getting a drink at the bar to try and drown her sorrows away. She had almost hit rock bottom but the bartender at the bar mentioned that they were looking for a part-time drummer.
Lena also got into online gaming, specifically shooters. She was pretty kick-ass, and the friends she met were surprised at how good a girl was, but now a days girls playing shooter games among others weren’t as uncommon.
Lena got a gig with a band and they were headed to do a show in Russia. Lena had never traveled to another country before and leapt at the opportunity. So, there she was on a plane headed to Russia… when the plane’s engine failed. They ended up somewhere between Europe and Russia. A few guys from the band survived. They traveled for a while and got to a town.. But people weren’t people anymore. It was like from one of the games she played. When coming upon the people that weren’t people.. Some of the band didn’t make and then eventually as they tried to survive, Lena was left alone. They found guns from what looked like a military checkpoint.. or was. Lena learned how to survive; this kind of world just made her tougher.
