Box of Squid Galvanic Files

Dust billows as the file box lands on the table. While many archives in the Interdimensional Rumor Mill are unified in some way, this... definitely isn’t one of them. The accompanying Rumor Registry explains all of the contents... wherever it is... but for now you grab the folder labelled IF-23.224 and start reading...

Origins

In the far reaches of the universe there was a lone wanderer who found herself in the depths of space, stranded with no way home. Rather than despair, Squid Galvanic looked inside herself to find a companion and spent countless seconds, hours, weeks, or years suspended within her own mind. Until she was interrupted by a disturbance in the cosmos - a great shifting of weight as a black hole was opened and the sun was destroyed. Curious at it's cause, she traveled to the source of the disturbance to find the Baltimore Crabs at the center of it all. Intrigued, and having had quite enough mediation for now, she opted to join their ranks and become a part of the team.

A Place on the Crabs

Galvanic has been described as a "fine tuned machine" and takes an extensive amount of time training, mediating, and centering herself to optimize her performance. She is particularly interested in the phenomenon of Carcinizatoin and how it may have an effect on the mind over the body.

Galvanic also takes a considerable interest in the written form, and practices calligraphy and poetry, both the writing of her own, as well as the reading of other more abstract works. After teammate Pedro Davids put her in touch with his long-time writing partner Valentine Games she has drafted several poems to send, but admitted that "I don't think I can compete with my teammate, who's words are written from the heart." Pedro has not only refused to comment, but also requested several times that Galvanic's comment be stricken from the record.

A Place in Baltimore

When returning to earth, Galvanic found that the many lives of the people of Baltimore were loud, chaotic, and uncontrollable, and she fell in love with it even if it was overwhelming at times. In order to help her acclimatize, fellow interdimensional traveler Parker Parra suggested she try doing "normal human stuff", and helped Galvanic find a role working at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. She took quite well to the work, and enjoyed talking to guests about the wonders of various underwater creatures. When asked how she felt about having to feed some of the shark exhibits live squids (considering her own squid-like nature), Galvanic simply responded: "Don’t worry about it.”
