Considering Alyssa lived in the dreaded Old City most of her life, she had many intensive and brutal events happen in her life.
The Old City Skirmish
When Alyssa finally had finished the modifications on her Trillaryllis, she was ready to defend herself against anyone or anything. This was the day she had met Audrey, Daniel, and their children: Elise, Destiny, and June. Audrey was the type of woman that would pick up and save any child on the street. To prevent it from living through a disturbing lifestyle, or growing up to be part of the Fading. While Alyssa loved her new found group, she still never said a word, which led Janet to believe she never learned any languages. While the family was walking toward a gas station for scavenging, an group of Fading jumped out of nowhere. They began harshly beating David to death, and were about to go after Janet when Alyssa slashed many of the attackers in half with her weapon. The last remaining Fading were about to stab Alyssa in the gut when ear piercing sniper rifle sounds rung out, killing every enemy around the family. They never discovered who had taken those gun shots.
