On the planet Albacin III around the 2060s, Lurra Wesiford, Savien's mother, was diagnosed with a disorder that made her unable to have children. Having fallen in love with Roh - an Avatar from the dream world Salvation, the two decided they wanted to create a human child by cloning Lurra. However, shortly after Savien was created, his parietal lobe suddenly ceased to function, and he was about to die. In a desperate effort to save him, Roh decided to use some of his own DNA to create a replacement brain, but it was not working. Unbeknownst to Savien himself, Roh's brother Durana offered his own cells which they managed to successfully integrate into him. However, this required swapping out more of Savien's brain with Avatar cells, and as a result, Savien became a new life form altogether: an Avatar-human hybrid.
Afterwards, Durana, although not legally Savien's father, wished to become his teacher and thus, augmented himself with human DNA so that he, too, could be an Avatar-human like him. While Savien had an exception, Durana's actions were considered heretical, and he was banished from the Avatar Theocracy. Savien disagreed with the decision, and the boy initially considering running away but was convinced to do otherwise by his friend Galvon Raminti. Eventually, Savien compromised with Roh, agreeing to not reveal his powers to anyone other than his closest friends and family. This way, Savien could stay out of the law that required full documentation of his powers which meant near constant monitoring by the government.
Exploration of powers
It was not long until Savien begun to explore the capacity of his powers on his own with the help of Galvon's intelligence to help him make sense of the science. Together, the two of them got into the habit of pulling pranks while using Savien's powers to their advantage.
One of the other quirks that Savien had acquired at birth was that he never had to eat or sleep since he instinctively channeled energy from Salvation, the home of the Avatars. If he did eat anything, it would taste bland. At the time, he saw eating and sleeping as an inconvenience so it didn't bother him.
Savien and Riley meet
Savien would later meet Riley Malsworth who had just moved from Jin-3. It was at this time when Savien realized that his powers could be used for more than just mischievous endeavors, and instead help others with good deeds. Together, Galvon and Savien actively worked to befriend Riley to make her come out of her shell, enough for her to talk about her past.
Eventually, Savien managed to help Riley to become a more confident individual. During semester break, Savien invited Riley on a date deciding to visit the resort city of Zahar to go sight-seeing while Galvon tagged along. In order to pay for this trip, Savien borrowed some money from his parents who were in the middle of some experiments. For the trip, they would stay at a five-star hotel.
Savien and company arrived at Zahar in the evening time (it is always nighttime in Zahar due to its geographical position on Albacin III which is tidally locked to its sun). Galvon insisted on attending a fancy restaurant for dinner in spite of Savien not being able to taste good food. It would be for Riley - to her, it was wildly exotic and delicious. It was here where Savien began to realize how much he was missing by not having human sensations. With Riley describing the food to Savien, they were now both helping each other out
Afterwards, the three of them went sightseeing marveling at the city's beautiful landscapes as well as its famous fountain and fireworks shows. For Riley, this was by far one of the happiest moments of her entire life, and perhaps for the first time, she cried tears of joy rather than sadness. And Savien himself became overwhelmed with empathy, now truly feeling for someone other than himself.
Attack on Zahar
Before heading home, the group decided to attend a freak show known as the Hundred Moon Clan which was being held in downtown Zahar. It was here where they encountered a young girl none other than Brynia Malsworth as one of the performers. However, what seemed to be a freak show was in fact a terrorist organization. One of the members of the Hundred Moon Clan named Irigor von Larané began to cause rampant destruction with his electromagnetic abilities, breaking windows and even leveling some buildings while Brynia Malsworth used her jinxing abilities to prevent the police from immediately capturing her.
Having seen Brynia for the first time in four years, Riley confronted her, but became devastated when she found out that Brynia had no desire to return. Brynia, who had completely turned against her, attempted to use her Gaze of Agony on Riley, but Galvon pushed her out of the way, and he was struck by it instead being turned to stone. Since Brynia became exhausted from using the Gaze of Agony, she and Irigor retreated for the time being.
Savien was not willing to give up on Galvon so he asked Riley to help him find a way to release Galvon. During their search, SomniLabs became aware of the attack on Zahar and approached Savien, claiming to know of a way to free Galvon from the spell. In exchange, both Savien and Riley had to work for SomniLabs by offering everything that they know about Salvation and magic respectively. They would become participants in the Hundred Moon Clan Crisis.
