Through the Breach
Ave's deceased mother.
Maria Brusker, maiden name Maria Ortega, is the mother to twin daughters (one of which being Ave Negra) and wife to _____ Brusker, a lead Guild scientist to Project Lazarus. When Lazarus first went on the rampage, both Brusker parents died under his assault, leaving the split up twins orphaned and in the streets. The only valuables Ave has of her mother are her newly found family photos and her wedding ring, gifted by Lucius Mattheson.
