You lived in Beach City. You were abused. Your family took one look at you and decided they didn't want you.they tried to dispose of you in a cliff-like cave. But you weren't as dead as they thought. In fact you weren't dead at all. You lived in that cave scince you were 3. You're 24 now. People thought you were a monster. And the crystal gems find you and one of them (lapis) really piques your intrest.or more accurately you pique hers.
