"We live on such a beautiful planet but in such an ugly world."
Miha Asura, daughter of a traditional Japanese kimono crafter was supposed to follow in the family arts. But Miha had different aspirations. Her love revolved around books. Her entire life she would spend her whole day reading whatever she could get her hands on. This of course was not what her father had in mind for her. So when Miha told her father that she wanted to become a book editor, she was forced to pursue it on her own. Throughout the years she had made many contacts and was given many job offers but when she was offered a job at Lance Corporal Editing at Manchester, England, she immediately took the offer.
Giovanni Capella was an aspiring chef who wanted to share his masterpieces with the world. He was born in a small Italian villa and raised as a chef by his grandfather. Throughout his childhood he learnt everything his grandfather had to offer and learned how to make some of the finest foods in Italy. Later on in his life, he decided he wanted to share his family’s masterpieces with the world. So he wrote a book, a book who needed an editor. After many months of rejection, Giovanni had finally received an offer from Lance Corporal Editing. The only catch was, he had to move to England so that they could review his work.
Upon arriving in England a few weeks later he had a meeting with his editor at a coffee shop. To his surprise it was a young Asian woman. Instantly Giovanni knew that he wanted her, but for the wrong reasons. He began to do whatever he could to ‘woo’ her. In his mind he used this woman for more than one reason. Giovanni knew that by having sex with this vulnerable woman, he would get what he wanted sexually and could also get what he wanted professionally… a published masterpiece. In Miha’s mind she believed that she had found someone who would respect and support her in all of her endeavours, unlike her parents. Because Miha’s life was so busy, she had little time up to this point to pursue her love life; Or even remember what love was.
After weeks of ‘love’, Miha came to Giovanni with two very important subjects. The first one was that his book was finally going to be published and the second being that he was going to be a father. Giovanni’s reaction to the later was more than what Miha had expected. He was enthusiastic and ecstatic. Giovanni even went so far as to marry her. Everything appeared to be ‘perfect’ even on the simple summer night in 1988 when Faith Capella was born.
After Faith was born, Giovanni’s life became difficult. In his mind he was being tied down and his dream of being famous worldwide was beginning to disappear. Giovanni eventually started to become resentful towards Miha and their child, Faith. His plans were gradually being destroyed. One night when he felt like he couldn’t take it anymore, he went to Miha. Telling her that his grandfather was dying where he had to go back to Italy before it was too late. Miha instantly told him to return to Italy for his grandfather’s last days. Never knowing that really this was the last time she was going to hear from him.
Being a single mother was extremely difficult for Miha. She had tried numerous times to find Giovanni but to no avail. Miha never gave up on believing Giovanni would return; she always believed that he loved her but just was too busy with family grieving. In later years Miha would tell Faith stories about her father such as his charm, goodlooks, masterful cooking and most importantly Italy. The place where he learnt his skillset.
In order for Miha to raise a child single handedly, she had to make sacrifices. She worked at all hours, day and night; even bringing Faith to work with her. In this atmosphere it was easy for Faith to grow up reading all types of books but her favourite books revolved around horror, mystery and murders. One book in particular inspired her entirely. The book was called, ‘How to Capture a Murderer’. Faith had read it more than any of the other books she enjoyed. She enjoyed it so much that it encouraged her to focus her entire life on helping capture criminal murderers.
Even though Miha always believed that Giovanni loved her, Faith never experienced her father’s love. Faith’s love and devotion was to her mother. Later in Faith’s life she had decided it was time to show her devotion to her mother’s culture, religion, and heritage. Miha’s Buddhist faith was a large inspiration to Faith, she had decided to take a giant step in her life when she had the symbol of wisdom, tranquillity, importance and love tattooed on her ribs. Close to her heart.
In 2003 she managed to achieve 8 GCSE’s (General Certificate of Secondary Education) which helped her get a placement in Connell Sixth Form College for A level Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics. Over two years time, she managed to achieve grades higher than C grade which landed her into getting in Anglia Ruskin University. In 2005 she studied Forensic Science for three years. However, in 2008 she decide to do the extended four years to become apart of the Royal Society of Chemistry and achieve an honours degree. Finishing the university course in 2012.
During her years at college it was required to do work experience. Faith had always had the interest of working in a morgue, so her two years of work study consisted of getting herself used to working around the deceased. Working with the dead took away Faith’s squeamish tendencies throughout the following weeks of being there. This also taught her the numerous ways of preserving the deceased and gave her a better understanding of what happens to you when you die. In her first three years of university Faith took a new step in her training, at this point it wasn’t about preserving the bodies, but more of how to properly preserve the body parts that needed to be donated to organ recipients. She had learned the many ways of keeping the tissue alive so that it could be maintained for later use. In the last four years of university, she had finally made her way up the ladder in experience for preparation of her future job. She learned the many signs of trauma and how to identify: diseases, poisons and abuses on the deceased. Faith weirdly enjoyed the last four years the most, it reminded her of the books she used to read in her mother’s office. Every time she would investigate a body, it would make her believe she was the main protagonist in the mystery novel.
In her final year of university, Faiths career adviser took strong notice of her dedication, devotion and passion for forensic pathology. Approaching Faith with a job opportunity that did not have any other truly devoted applicants for. Before that day, she had never even heard of the WHO (World Health Organisation)...
At the end of the day, she jumped at the offer. Not because it intrigued her, but because when it came down to it, a job was a job. And the job paid well.
Faith’s first assignment was to be sent off to Uganda, East Africa on the 17th November 2012. Her job was to investigate the possible signs of Ebola. Little did she know, she would be apart of one of the biggest outbreaks of Ebola known to modern man. Throughout the next four or so years, the situation seemed to have calmed down and she was placed to the side until something new arrived. On the 5th July 2017, Faith was called to be stationed for what seemed to be another outbreak of Ebola. She would be transported to a place called Balota, Chernarus on the 17th July. On the 24th July the United Nations and WHO had finally set up to make progress on this outbreak. With suspicion of it strongly not being Ebola but something completely unknown to them.
