I've finally found my place in life. A driving purpose.
The disappearance of a friend. The limits of humanity. The origin of gods. Anabelle Evingston, doctor of medicine and member of multiple secret organizations -- her meteoric rise through the Legion
's ranks was nothing less than legendary, enough to make her the talk of the entire world for a few years. But just as she finally reached the top, Dr. Evingston retreated from the public eye; where she's gone, and what the brilliant doctor is working on next, no one is truly sure.
Anabelle is not a natural born leader; that's simply what she's made herself into. Incredibly intelligent with very limited patience for failure, she demands the best not only from herself, but from all those that work with and for her. Together these qualities make for an exceptionally lonely lifestyle -- one that Anabelle doesn't really mind, although she has found the ability within herself to build a close network of people she once called "friends".
Who She Was
The people of Varzen
like to see themselves as an independant people; and yet the powerful nation to their north, Artazia
, sees it differently. It's within this highly unstable political climate, within Varzen's capital city of Vanata
that's forced to regularly pay taxes to their superpower northern neighbour, that Anabelle was born.
Her parents, Everette and Janice Evingston, were a pair of doctors that operated a successful practice within Vanata
; while the steep tax on their income bothered them, it wasn't enough to convince them to move, as the prestige of being the best doctors in Varzen was a hard thing to give up. Much of Anabelle's early childhood was spent purely with her parents -- from a young age she showed signs of heightened intelligence, and would spend the days asking question after question, to the point where her parents put her into school three years early just so that they could get some breathing room from the inquisitive child.
At first the young Anabelle loved school; she could endlessly ask questions, and learn everything there was to know. But, she was also frustrated by the practice; the fact that none of the other kids seemed to think on the same wavelength as her was incredibly annoying and more than a little dissapointing.
You never say "good" or "great", you never tell me I excel -- all you ever say is just "not bad".
Temporary relief came to her when she managed to skip a grade here and there, but time and time again, she'd be left with the same frustration of being the only one to see things as clearly as she did. Life at home wasn't perfect for her, either; her parents, recognizing greatness within their daughter, decided to push a young Anabelle in order to become the brilliant individual they were sure she was destined to become. They answered her questions less and less, forcing her to come to the conclusion on her own -- and even then, the approval they gave back to her became more and more rare, in order to make Anabelle hungry for success.
I tried my best. I really tried.
