Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

The Transcript For This Page
Lauren, Otto, and Diana at the table on the balcony.
Caption: After I shared a bit about my past, Lauren opened up, as I'd hoped.
Lauren: Yes well of course since I'm not merely the youngest, I'm the only one who inherited her status, and wasn't part of the founding …
Lauren: … I'm quite the junior 'Pillar' of this city, for whatever that's worth.
Lauren, Otto and Diana. Otto can't take his eyes off Diana, who is starting to take notice.
Lauren: But of course, you're not here to talk about me, you want to know about Hayami.
Lauren: She was pretty amazing. At once quite personable, but with a laser-beam focus on her job.
Flashback scene: Lauren is walking along a concourse with a sharp young man. Hayami is three steps behind. Lauren speaks from a cameo:
Lauren: I would take her with me on business trips – to Azuria, or Kinshu, or Ramonagar – and despite her size she was a marvel at how she could watch me like a hawk but not be noticed herself.
Flashback continues: Lauren is in bed with the sharp young man, making the beast with two backs. The room lighting is low but not too dark. Hayami is standing in a corner, literally blending in with the background via holography.
Caption (Lauren): 'She had this uncanny ability to blend into the background.
Caption: 'If she didn't want to be seen, you'd never see her.'
