Aria and the other residents of their secluded compound couldn't ask for a more plush lifestyle to wait out the apocalypse. Waited on hand and foot in a fortress of knowledge, culture, and science as the future monarchs of the next evolution of humanity is certainly a better fate than whatever horrors lie outside the walls of the compound. 

But everything comes with a price. Aria and the eleven others like her are prisoners, involuntary participants in an experimental genetic project aimed at preserving and evolving humanity. For Aria, being a genetically engineered superhuman is boring when you're locked in your own castle, and being the queen of humanity means nothing when there's no one to rule.

Aria has all but given up on caring about much of anything. Caring has only ever led to pain. That is, until a new resident moves into the room next to hers.
