☠ Being Restrained | There is nothing that she both despises and fears more than being unable to move freely.

☠ Thunder/Lighting | The only thing she can do is cover her ears and hide under something until the storm passes.

☠ Being Helpless | It's been pounded into her head from childhood that those who cannot help themselves have no purpose or reason in the world and therefore are not needed.

â™Ĩ Hand-to-hand Combat | Cypher began her defense and battle training at a young age and is a force to be reckoned with when angered or threatened.

â™Ĩ Musician | Be it piano, guitar, flute or practically any kind of of instrument, Cypher can play it even if it's the first time ever seeing it. All it takes if a few minutes for her to understand what to do.

â™Ĩ Negotiation/Persuasion | Well, often times it's more like Cypher will keep pressing her point until the other party gives up.

★ Independent | Don't even open a door for her unless you are prepared for her to pull you away annoyingly so she can open the door herself. Cypher doesn't rely on others for any sort of help; always doing things herself and never asking for assistance or advice.

★ Boyish | Simply for the fact that Cypher was raised in boys clothes while participating in sports initially meant for boys, she some times tends to show boyish characteristics. Not that that's such a horrible thing, but on her planet ladies are suppose to act like ladies even when in boys clothing, so she was often scolded whenever she raised her voice or even chewed her food wrong.

● As a common custom on her home planet, Rem, Cypher has always dressed in professional and traditional boys clothing. She's only recently begun to wear girls clothing after coming to Earth.

● The only ones to call Cypher by her first name were her parents, while her middle name is used by any other person.


Considered an eccentric being to both humans and some of her own race, Cypher's personality seems to differ. Sometimes it depends on her clothing choice, time of day or weather and other times her attitude may change depending on the situation or who she's in the company of. This often tends to rouse confusion in those who aren't used to being around her when her personality changes. She may be incredibly friendly and easy-going at first, then she may brush you off in a harsh and blunt manner later on without reason. However her neutral self is usually polite and a little distant, but all in all not bad company if the time is right if you' don't mind her meowing at stray cats and spacing out in front of cake shops.

Some have come to suspect she has multiple personality disorder, but that isn't the case at all. Cypher's just not good at keeping a constant mood at all times, and even the smallest thing may cause a shift in her state of mind. One thing that doesn't seem to change though is her strong will and extreme independent nature. Far past the line of simple stubbornness, Cypher has always been a self-sufficient person. Even as a toddler she was always trying to do things by herself, her parents rarely having to do anything for her. She hates the idea of receiving help from someone, mainly because she feels like she owes them a favor in return even if they say otherwise. Her independent nature has also lead her to suppress and ignore any sort of emotions she finds unpleasant. She has many friends on her home planet, but not one of them have ever seen the well-composed Cypher in a moment of weakness.

Cypher is also the type that basks in determination and confidence, a trait that many would find inspiring. After all, who wouldn't look up to such a beam of strength and elegance. Well, when I say elegance I mean when she's not stuffing her cheeks full of chocolate or wiping the drool off her face in the morning. In all honesty Cypher can actually be quite the mess, which goes against how most first perceive her. She shouts angrily at video games, will dirty her clothes on her hands and knees while searching for animals to catch or even go about the entire day without showering after working out the same morning.

Despite her odd behaviors and differentiating attitudes, Cypher is quite the intelligent teen. Though she's more likely do better in physical activities than ones that require a lot of thinking, she's still a rather bright individual who is both diligent and persistent. She's not one to give up on something just because she's not very good at it and will argue with anyone who says she's not fit for whatever she's doing.


Remichles, or more commonly known as 'Rem', is occupied by sophisticated and well-mannered citizens. Though it's not a particularly large planet, it's suspected to be one of the very first planets to ever support life. It's highly advanced, equipped with a shield that covers the entire planet to protect it from outside threats. The buildings that cover almost the whole of Rem's surface look to be pulled out of the Victorian era, with beautiful mansions and towers built on different levels, stacked up like books on a shelf. There is very little oxygen on Rem, but those who live here are easily capable of living without much air and oxygen filters are given freely to visitors at the only entrance and exit that the planet's shield has.

To outsiders the customs and traditions here may come off as rather strange. On Rem, females are required to dress in boys clothing until marriage. Males are given feminine middle names, while females have middle names that are more masculine. Every citizen is called by their middle name, their first names used only by parents, sometimes siblings, and by their partners. All children are required to receive at least basic defense training once they enter their first year of school and are also occasionally given lessons in medicine.

Cypher was born on Rem two years after her sister to parents of high stature, who would reside within the higher level mansions. Her younger brother was born four years later, resulting in Cypher becoming the middle child. After barely passing the entry exam she managed to make it into the same school as her older sister, one of the most prestigious schools East Rem could offer.

Her charisma and confidence made it easy for her to gain plenty of friends in school, though her parents being political heads also played a role in her popularity. It wasn't long before she heard about the experiment soon to be conducted on Earth. Her sister was the first choice, not that Cypher minded. Traveling to a new place would intervene with her training and studies anyway, however she was secretly disappointed. Her sister was the perfect choice, but if only Cypher could have the opportunity to see new places.

Only a week before the ship would leave to the experiments location, her older sister grew sick. Nothing serious, but she wouldn't be well enough on time for the set date. Even an advanced civilization such as Remichles had it's common cold. After some debate between bother her parents and her sister, it was decided that Cypher was to go in the older girls place. Not quite the reason she was hoping for, but she proudly and most gladly accepted the request.


So begins...

Arizona, at this point in the day, was looking marvelously beautiful. The sun sat, plump in the light blue sky, and far below, a young boy was staring directly at it in amazement through the window of a car. It was a sight to see: a small teenager buckled into the back of a black, bulletproof car. Two tough looking men sat in the front seats, a very large gun in the hand of the one in passenger's side. The one who was armed seemed to be observing their escort by a constant turning of his head. Upon seeing what he was staring at, the man informed the youth that the sun was not something to be looked at for long periods of time. The boy, in response, turned to face him, but his hands immediately shot to his eyes. He made a small whining noise before drawing his hands back to his lap and looking out the window once more, ignoring the sigh of his guard.

The boy's name was Toddlk Lorav and he was an alien. To any outsider, that statement would seem bizarre and unbelievable, but it was the truth. Toddlk did not come from earth, but when he had arrived as a visitor, he had been treated with respect. In fact, Todd had nearly just arrived. He'd landed in a small ship at some secret military base in northern Arizona, and he was on his way to yet another secret facility.

Suddenly, the car jerked to a stop, it's wheels kicking up dust from the sandy road, pulling the small extra-terrestrial out of his thoughts. He immediately found himself, once again, glued to the window, his eyes widening at the sight of their destination. In truth, he'd expected it to look nicer, as it looked quite like a prison from the outside. It had large stone walls covered in barbed wire and practically an army of guards surrounding its gate. Before Todd could finish looking, his door was pulled open by the driver of his car, whom Todd did not notice get out. He stared at the unfriendly looking man through the opening in the car, Todd not moving from his seat. The two boys locked eyes, Toddlk still not budging. Eventually, the driver seemed to realize what the issue was, leading him to bend over the short blonde in his car and unbuckle his seatbelt. "Thank you!" the alien cried as he grabbed his small suitcase and leaped out of the car, landing in a catcher's stance. He quickly stood up, trotting toward the massive clump of security guards. The driver, who had followed him from the car, rested a hand upon his shoulder, signaling him to wait a moment. Todd didn't mind, as he instead knelt down and began to play with the sand below them.

The man gruffly spoke some sort of code, as "Butternut" was not a word that often came up in regular conversation. The security force grunted in acknowledgement, parting so that the gate they were guarding could be passed into. There was a loud buzzing noise, followed by the swinging open of the gate. Todd took this as a cue to stand up and approach the facility that would be home for the next few weeks.

Upon stepping into the facility, his breath was taken away. Despite its outward appearance of a prison, the city inside was stunning! There were small houses lining the streets, Todd figuring that they were the homes of those in charge of and running the experiment. There was a rather large building, which happened to be filled with classrooms, although the young alien did not know this. In the middle of the town square lied an enormous fountain, water trickling down from the mouth of an extravagant angel resting at the top, all the way into the pool below. The sight made Toddlk flinch with discomfort.

Before he could admire the scenery much longer, he was approached by a stranger wearing a white lab coat. The man, his appearance leading Todd to believe that he was a scientist, seemed fascinated by the sight of the young alien. To be honest, his appearance did attract interest, as he hadn't mastered human fashion at this point. He wore a pair of orange board shorts, paired with a maroon sweater that did not match in the slightest nor looked comfortable in the Arizona heat. However, the man did not seem to be put off, as he approached the young boy and placed a hand upon the lad's head as he examined him. "Mr. Lorav. A pleasure to have you!" he spoke after he had sized the young man up, recognizing him from the profiles of participants available to the staff. "I expect you knew that, when coming here, you'd be paired up with humans, correct?"

Todd stared at him, slightly baffled, only half paying attention to what the man was saying. But, his lips parted into a wide grin and he placed his hand upon the stranger's head, as he figured that it was some human welcoming ritual. The man pulled away laughing, as if Toddlk had done something he found funny. "The dorm buildings are right over there, if you would like to get settled into your room," said the supposed scientist, pointing to a large building down the street and to the right. "I have to stay here to welcome our other guests, so I'll see you later." As Todd turned to leave, now on his own, the man waved at him. Todd waved back, grinning stupidly, before making his way to his room.

The dorm building was about two stories tall and quite wide. Its outer facade seemed quite new, not a single crack to be found upon its surface. It had a few steps leading up to its wooden door, which Todd quickly climbed, prying the entrance open. He stepped inside, finding the foyer to give off a very quaint feel. The lobby had comfortable looking couches inside, and a television hanging upon the far wall. Steps lead up to the next story, a small platform above holding the entrance to six different rooms. The young alien hurried up the steps, finding that, upon each door, two names were plastered. Todd searched until he found his own name, next to the name of a stranger. Eagerly, he stepped into his new bedroom. To his surprise, it seemed quite homey, so he plopped his suitcase down upon the floor. The room contained a large bunk bed, a small kitchen area with a mini-fridge and microwave, and a bathroom tucked away in the back. Todd, unknowing of what to do next, sat himself down upon the floor and stared at the door.

Cypher took in a deep breath, tasting the Earth's air on her tongue. There was so much air here with different smells and tastes, nothing like the clean and nearly nonexistent air back home. The smells on Rem were in few as well, but here was different. The air in this area had a dusty smell to it and the breeze was hot, though there was a slight hint of water somewhere in the distance. On Earth having such a strong sense of smell would probably be considered abnormal, but after being on a planet with barely any smells or tastes, Cypher couldn't help all the new scents rushing to her.

"We're nearly here. It's up ahead."

Cypher turned her head from the window for a second to nod at the suited man who spoke. Her lips were curved up into a very small smile, as she was doing her best not to look too excited. She didn't want these to people to think of her as childish.

She'd dressed in her nicest clothes for this occasion, wanting to make a good first impression when meeting the human she would be paired with. It was also her job, after all, to establish a professional connection with the authorities in charge of the experiment. She had her coat, vest, and tie perfectly straightened with not a wrinkle in site and her shoes had been freshly polished that morning. Her bright hair that held the same bright orange as the sunset was tied back in the usual braided ponytail that she often kept it in with a dark red ribbon holding it in place. Yes, right now she felt nervous but also ready.

When the car pulled to a stop she took in another deep breath, though this time more to calm herself than to taste the air. The door opened and she stepped out, thanking the man as she did. From where she was standing the place looked awfully dull. It was a little hard to believe at first that this is where the experiment would be held, however after retrieving her large rolling suitcase and making her way inside the walls her thoughts were completely turned around. This was practically a little town!

"Looks like we're going right on schedule! That would mean you're Ms. Maimo?"

Cypher was approached by a man in a lab coat with a clipboard in hand. After little inspection she guessed he must be one of the humans in charge of the experiment. She gave him a polite smile and nodded. "Yes, Sir, I am. It's a pleasure to meet you."

The man chuckle and held out his hand to her, something she thought of as a little odd. "You're a polite one!" After a few moments of silence the man realized Cyphers confusion and kept up his wide smile. "You're supposed to shake it. Sorry, you're probably not used to this kind of gesture."

"Ah, I'm sorry! I didn't realize-" The man shook his head and turned to the side to point in the direction behind him. "Nothing to apologize for! I've got to make this brief, unfortunately, so feel free to make yourself at home. The dorms are in that building just over there and your partner just arrived a few minutes ago."

"Thank you!" She said as the man went off in the other direction. She let out a small sigh. "I know I only had a week to study this planet but I should've at lest known how to greet someone! ..How embarrassing." She shook her head in an attempt to clear her negative thoughts away, reassuring herself after deciding that next time she would know what to do.

Once she reached the dorms he as quite relieved to be out of the heat. Her attire really wasn't fit for this sort of temperature, but the temperature back home was always cool and perfect for what she was wearing. With the buildings here being cooled though it shouldn't be too much of a problem. A she passed by the other doors, none of which had her name, she took the time to read the plaques on the doors. She topped once she found her name next to the name of her roommate. "Ayano Himura. What a pretty name." She spoke silently to herself, her mind running with thoughts of what this new place would be like and what type of people she'd meet. She cleared her throat and turned the nob, discovering it was unlocked, meaning Ayano must still be inside. "Excuse me." She said loud enough for anyone on the other side of the door to hear so that they'd be aware of her presence before opening it and taking a step inside.

Todd found that his wait was not long at all, as, within a few moments, he noticed the doorknob turn. The opening of the door followed with the entrance of another being, a person which Todd assumed was human. The boy introduced himself, stating that his name was Ian, a shortened version of Julian. He also paired his name with the question "What's up?", a phrase that the alien did not understand. "What's... up?" he asked, leaning his head back to check. "The.... bed above me?" He had no idea why anybody would care to know what was above him, but he knew it must have made sense to humans.

After answering the human's odd question, Todd turned back to his roommate. "It's a pleasure to meet you, Ian. My name is Toddlk Lorav, but most people seem to have difficulty saying that here, so call me Todd if you find that easier to say." He didn't exactly know how to greet the people of Earth, and he debated trying the strange head tap that a scientist had used on him a few minutes before. However, a quick read of the human's emotions told him that he had done all that he needed to with his introduction.

Without much of a hesitation, Ian responded with a question. "So are you really an alien? Or is this some huge, complex, practical joke?" asked the human, who now settled down upon the floor.

"Yep, I'm really an alien!" he cried, as if the statement had excited him. Technically, from Todd's perspective, Ian was an alien also, but since Todd had come to his planet, he figured it was only right for that title to go to him. "I'm from Fleiohiri, although it's quite far away so I doubt you've heard much about it. It's a lot warmer there," Todd said as he fidgeted with his blanket. "So, are you from around here?"

Toddlk leaned forward, allowing his roommate to answer. Everything about earth intrigued him, leaving his mind practically begging for information and insight. However, only a few moments passed before a loud voice, belonging to neither of the occupants in the room, echo throughout their dorm. The sudden noise, which came from below the bunks, scared the poor alien sitting above it half to death. "Hello there, participants. I hope that you are all settling down into your rooms and getting to know your partners. As you've probably realized by now, half of you... aren't from around here. As its getting later, the staff of this facility have decided to order you all pizza. If you could begin to make your way to the foyer downstairs for dinner, that'd be great."

Sliding off the bed, Todd decided to examine the source of this voice. He lowered himself onto his hands and knees, not giving Ian much of an explanation to his random behavior, and peered under the bunk. It was there that he found a speaker, one of the many that must have been rigged in every room. He wondered if the scientists could hear them as well as talk to them.

This did not bother Toddlk, though, as he had not come to Earth with intent to judge its people. If it was a human thing to hook up software in the bedrooms of citizens so that you could listen in on them, then who was Todd to deem it odd? Anyway, he had other things to wonder about. For one, what was pizza? He guessed that humans ate it, and he would most likely eat it as well. Although, he couldn't help but wonder if the alien food of Earth would agree with his digestive system, built for foods Earth did not have to offer. Todd had not been smart enough to pack snacks in case he couldn't eat human cuisine, but he didn't worry about it too much. He didn't even seem to care much when he came to the realization that anything and everything about Earth could possibly disagree with his alien body. His solution to his slightly pessimistic thought was to simply not get sick.

Quickly realizing how awkward he must have looked, Todd stood up and dusted himself off. "Should we get going?" he asked Julian.
