Young Maria Helena was tired of her dull life in Huelva. The most exciting part of her day was watching the ships sail in and out of port - she longed to be out on the sea, rather than stuck on land. So, when she saw an opportunity to sneak aboard a galeon, she did not hesitate. Disguising herself as a boy, she stowed away in the cargo hold until the ship sailed out to sea.

This was over 400 years ago.

Days into the ship’s journey, Maria heard panicked shouting on the deck above. Tired of hiding and hoping that no one would notice another random boy on the ship, she raced to the top deck to see what all the commotion was about. As she reached the deck, the boat lurched terribly, throwing many crew members overboard, but Maria managed to catch herself on a railing. She could finally see the sea, but it was not the joyous occasion she had hoped for, as only a few dozen feet from the ship was a terrible wrongness. A horribly anomaly. There appeared to be a vast crack in the surface of the ocean itself, and the water around it was all pouring into the rift. The men who fell overboard were all quickly sucked in, and the ship was being pulled closer and closer with each passing moment. Everyone aboard the ship ran about in a blind panic - no one had ever experienced anything like this before. Maria made her way to the ship’s helm.

As the ship finally dove into the crack, sailors fell from the boat into the twisting void, but Maria held tight to the wheel, wanting to sail the ship even unto eternity.

And then, she did.

The temporal energies of the rift in time changed the ship as it fell, and Maria Helena experienced some of that change herself. She could feel the energy of the rift stretching out before the ship, and knew that by turning the wheel she gripped so tightly, she could move the ship through the temporal flow of time itself! Time was hers to explore, and to plunder!

Now, Maria Helena Teresa Fafila Servanda Jimena Mansuara Paterna Domenga Gelvira Placia Sendina Belita Eufemia Columba Gontina Aldonza Mafalda Cristina Tegrida de Falcon has sailed through the ages, collecting names for herself and a crew from her past, present, and future, all with the same thirst for adventure and greed for the riches of everywhere . . . and everywhen!
