She was calm when the doctor told her she had nine months to live, handing over the young infant that would replace her soon. She was to raise it, care for it, give it a name. And, when it came of age her blood would be spilled on the sand.

Serenity did just that. She obeyed the high command to nurture her replacement, all the while plotting her escape.

She never expected to fall in love with it. Serenity never anticipated god's wrath.

She named her Dream, in honor of a world she wished one day would come into being.
