Dr. Karen Sweeney

Karen sweeneyDr. Karen Sweeney was pursuing her graduate studies in Mathematics when she was asked to help a colleague with a research mission. She was small enough to fit inside a special mechanical dive suit known as the Elven Mk3. After that she continued her studies, and earned a good deal of prestige. That is until she was asked to sit in on the panel of scientists given the task to deflect a massive near earth asteroid. At the same time she was also diagnosed with breast cancer. She was working through the calculations while undergoing treatment. A distraction she would never be able to forgive herself for. He faulty calculations caused the deflection of the asteroid to skip through the earths atmosphere and graze the moon. The resulting cataclysm caused the deaths of untold billions, and altered the earths climate. All the scientists were discredited and ousted from their various positions, except Dr. Sweeney. She was placed into cryogenic stasis, were she hopes the future will bring a cure. And possible absolution.

JoshuaJoshua Collins is very lucky not to be counted within the tens of thousands of “Cryo-vics”. (slang term applied to people who suffered aging or deformation due to the poor quality cryogenic technologies used 200 years ago.) Unfortunately, Josh is now an orphan. His Mother died when he was young, and his father died during a deep space mission.

hideJoseph Burkhart is a municipal computer maintenance programmer who works from home. His home is so densely filled with computer (It’s all one system) that he lives within inches of core processors and relays. He gained the nick name “hide” due to the gripping agoraphobia he suffers from. Growing up he had a severe fear of open spaces. He would hide under couches, in the knee wells of desks, and in boxes.¬†When he was five he saw his parents die during the “Apophis disaster”. Now he never leaves his house, and can do everything he needs to do from home via the internet.
