Avery Amanda Aaronson was the only child of Adam and Alice. Her life was pretty normal until she was six years old, when tragedy struck with bitter cruelty. The Aaronson residence was the victim of a home invasion while Doctor Aaronson was out of town for a medical symposium. The trio of miscreants left Avery in a coma, and claimed her mother's life. Adam was devastated. When he learned that Avery would be paralyzed from the neck down even should she wake from the coma, he was galvanized to extreme action.

Avery ended up in a virtual reality loosely based on Edgar Rice Burroughs and other Hollow Earth stories. Raised as a huntress and heroic warrior, young Avery's mind in VR learned to master her greatest advantage - the ability to Walk the Space Between Breaths, in this fictional world Avery could teleport with great skill and power!

In the real world Doctor Aaronson tried everything he could to save his daughters body but couldn't do anything about crippling damage to her spine that would have left her paralyzed from the neck down. His solution was to clone her a new body, and work on transferring her consciousness to it at some later date once its accelerated growth finished. Sadly, he was not nearly wealthy enough to afford advanced VR and life support AND cloning, so he had to cut corners, and ended up using suspect materials from shady sources, materials that proved to be contaiminated. Worse, as part of the treatment he had the two bodies filtering each other's blood to help the new one build up immunities and to prep it for the transfer.

On the day the transfer was to take place some of his shady contacts breached the house, a second home invasion, and would have interrupted it had Doctor Aaronson not delayed them just long enough. What he couldn't anticipate was that the transfer would end up for a brief moment with his daughter's mind inhabiting both bodies — and the transfer device interacting along all the points of interconnection to create a massive explosion.

Avery woke in a hospital, not knowing where she was she found herself horribly weak, and ravenous. Eventually things got sorted out and she found she was an orphan, and spent half a year in physical therapy recovering. After that she paid her bills, paid off her father's debt and barely had enough to eke out an existence in this vastly different world.

Resolved to not squander the gifts she had been given, Avery works hard at her job, and helps others whenever she can. In her heart she hopes only to make her father proud and to do the right thing…always.
