[5 years ago; Paris, France]
With a thud, Vivi was dropped off at some random alleyway in a place the inhabitants of Earth called Paris. From what she could remember from her history lessons, the place used to be called something else. But that was really irrelevant now. Very.
As she watched her drop-off ship fly away, Vivi wished that she could have had more time to develop back at her home planet. But, the rule was that if any member of the race did not develop fast enough, they'd have to be dropped off at Earth. Something about being away from their natural home world which caused their race to slowly devolve, or something. Some people were lucky enough to not be one of those few Cyclopians who were immediately part of the devolving generation; Vivi wasn't one of those few.
Vivi was versed in the ways of Earthly customs a few weeks before she left her planet and during the trip to Earth and was garbed in the appropriate wear for the area, which was modified for her to wear without burning it on her skin (a large sweater and a pair of pants 1 size to large for her to wear; she had to use a belt to keep it on). She didn't have to worry about learning any outdated information, since all she had to do to learn was absorb the information from a broadcast signal her planet had captured using their advanced satellite technology. It was mostly about rubbish, like 'celebrities' getting divorced and married (it seemed that the term 'celebrity' was given to very well-known people), things that should be bought, and shows with confusing stories. There were other pieces of information that were actually quite important, but compared to the rest, it was only a minority.
As she stepped out of the alleyway, Vivi had to squint her eyes at the amount of sunlight shining down on her; the drop-off ship's interior was quite dark, and there was barely any light back at the alley. As she walked forward, she stumbled into someone. Vivi heard a swear (in the 'French' language, which was being used in the area) and felt the collar of her shirt being pulled. Panicking, Vivi pulled away and started to run away as far as she could. It was very far.
When she finally stopped, Vivi looked around to see if she was being pursued; she was not. Sighing with relief, Vivi stood up to brush herself when she noticed something which had somehow lodged itself in the folds of her sweater. She took it out and saw that it was some kind of hat. Putting the information together, Vivi assumed that the hat must have gotten caught in her sweater somehow when she bumped into that person from earlier, and she was thought to have stolen it. Using that as a basis, Vivi assumed that it would be best to get out of the country, or at least the city she was in; she ran away under the suspicion of being a thief. She'd obviously be seen as one because of that.
Sighing once again, Vivi wore the hat and began trekking down the road she was on. Hopefully she'd fine somewhere to settle soon. Well, at least until 10 years later. Then she'd be able to get back home.
[Current Day; Paraíso City]
Vivi finally found somewhere she could settle after 5 years. She had to leave the earlier country for it.
After stowing away on various ships, hitch hiking rides down long roads, living off synthesized food, and begging for money in Retirement Centers (she wasn't really old enough to do any work at the time until she was 18 year olds, but she despised any menial labor and didn't have any credentials for any better jobs; so Vivi made her living through begging), Vivi finally made enough money to get a home for at least a year. Well, her new home was more of an apartment, but it was still a place to live in. It was better than sleeping at cross way sections.
Remarkably, Vivi's clothes and health were in perfect condition. The radiant energy she emitted from her core kept away decomposers and germs. That was quite handy for Vivi, since she couldn't afford to buy new clothes and she often ate with her hands.
The apartment she was heading to was a place called Redstone Park, and she had contacted it a few weeks ago after reading about it in a newspaper she found floating around a street. She reserved a room for herself over the phone and had began traveling towards the place immediately; she was calling all the way from Mexico at the time. It was quite a hassle to get over the border, but her powers made it easier.
Vivi got off the bus she had been riding and found herself in front of the apartment block and began examining the layout. "The architecture is simple, but it's elegant in a way as well." Vivi commented to herself as she entered into the lobby. She looked around for the main office and found it immediately; it was the place where the most amount of people seemed to be gathered. Natural, seeing at today seemed to be the apartment's opening day. After a few people cleared out, Vivi moved over to the counter and tapped it to get the attention of the person who was manning it; Vivi was quite short, so she had to do that for a person to notice her. "Excuse me!" Vivi called out to the man. "My name is Vivi Rocity. I reserved a room here about a week ago?" Vivi pulled out the receipt for the room she requested to be faxed to her (she had it done in a shop); she didn't have anything which could prove her identity, so having a receipt was the only way to prove her identity. "I'd like to move in immediately." she said.
As she waited for the man's reply, she looked over to her left side to find what seemed to be an alien, or a man dressed as one, standing right beside her. From the information she had received about 5 years ago, the alien, or man was dressing as, was what the humans called a grey aliens who were known for probing the people they abducted. Strange people, but Vivi could understand their want of gathering knowledge. "Uuummm.....isn't it a bit early for Halloween, sir?" Vivi asked the alien or man. Whichever it was.
