If you asked shifters about a female named Opalescence Alkingsly they wouldn't understand and if you asked them about the legend of Red, it sometimes sparked a distant memory worn away with the passage of time. However, more often than not, it too would be met with a look of confusion.
Legends sometimes fade, forgotten, and lost within the past. But the few that remember, and pass on the tales; for them the legends live on.
From the moment she was born, Red was destined to leave her mark on the world. Both blessed to make a change and cursed to find her end, she wants for something the world cannot give her. A second chance. Her visions were painful, driving her to stain her hands with blood. All Red ever wanted was to wash her hands clean, but as she learns quickly, some stains aren't so easy to remove.
One choice, one family member dead, and one curse, was all it took to set her along a path with no way out. The consequences of one's action never give second chances as Red finds out. She travels in search of a cure, and her past will affect her future.
In the end two will have died. One by Red's hand and one will be her.
Her tale, forgotten by many in the sands of time, her choices built a foundation.
