The War of Wind and Moon (Season One)
How do you fight evil if death is not the end?
Seventeen-year-old Mia trusts no-one. She wants to - she'd give almost anything to be able to - but when your survival depends on the acute awareness of every whim and mood swing of your narcissistic, rage-filled mother, anxiety becomes a default state. Mia has become expert at reading body language, facial expressions, vocal fluctuations - permanently prepared to fight, flee or freeze at the slightest hint of anger, aggression or even just disapproval. Mia's learned it's easier to be alone.
But Mia's not alone. When the people children are supposed to be safest with abuse them, it's common to develop this hyper-aware state. Doctors have a name for it: hyper-vigilance.
The recruitment scouts at Kazemoto Security (Supernatural Division) have a word for it, too: potential.
