Character Details

Born without eyes to the grandaughter of Destiny, sister to a brother. It could have been a birth defect but obviously as time would tell, it most certainly wasn't.

Her Brother tried to attack and kill her but her mother defended her, dieing in the process. When Ruth was found beside her mother, authorities contacted her next of kin. She then lived with and was raised by her Aunt in Prospect Plains, NJ.

Some of her first visions came as strange dreams, her aunt thought she was just having nightmares. One night she woke from one of her 'nightmares' early in the morning, she clung to her aunt and wouldn't let go saying 'bad things, at the bank' and wouldn't let her aunt leave that day. Later there was an incident at the bank that her aunt usually went to, on the tv news. Never again did her aunt question her nightmares.

In school she was put into special education due to her handicap and was frequently teased for the cloth she wore over where her eyes should have been. One day waiting for the bus with her close friend who lived a few houses down the street, she told her friend she was happy for her that she had a new baby sister. Her friend simply blinked at her "Ok, you're being weird now". It became a regular topic of arguement and they drifted apart. Several months later, Ruth's best friend found out from her parents that her mom was pregnant with a girl. The two never spoke again.

She made friends with a boy a block away but it was to be short lived. They became close friends but then one day he nearly decked her for telling him she was sorry his parents were getting a divorce and he was adopted. He stormed out only to find out a week later that only the previous night had his parents finally come to the decision to get a divorce and that yes he was adopted when he was just a baby, they'd raised him as their own. He moved away with his parents without saying a word to her. Leaving her sad that she was right and wishing she'd been nicer to him.

Something about NYC tugged at her and she felt a need to go there. Visiting often she explores NYC and must follow where her visions lead, hoping that maybe they'll bring her to the help she seeks and finally learn to control her visions.
