I wrote this backstory in the first few weeks of writing the original story for he comic. Originally there was no connection to Alex, but as more elements introduced themselves over time it seemed like a perfect fit. A tragic backstory that connects a few characters & gives motivation to their actions & reasons for their personalities… All people are united in mortality.
After nearly 15 years it’s kind of strange to actually come to this part of the story. Although the best parts of the stories are the ones I have the most time to go over in my head & hammer out. The original story was in my head for at least ten years before it actually became Between Failures. Getting time to work & rework this will hopefully make it resonate in that way that fiction seems almost more true than reality. In any case, Nina is getting her long awaited focus story. Which will go on for quite some time & be woven into the overall tale for even longer than that.
