Main CharactersRed bullets mean the ability is part of their biologyAngel
Found in infancy and adopted by two Quaestum scientists. The two are married but could never agree upon a third suitor for marriage and thus couldn't have a child of their own. He foster parents are part of the trans-dimensional research project and Angel shares in their fascination.
In schools, Angel was bullied for being different. (She is part of an undiscovered species) A Sentinel child, the only of his race at the school, supported her. A friendship was born.
Her friend, enjoying his differences, eventually moved to Sentenius Prime, his race's home world, for the first time. He would be a stranger with a familiar face there, a new challenge. Angel would go on to become part of the trans-dimensional research project. Once the Quaestum military got involved in the project, they recruited her for her expertise and natural abilities.

Young Daemon survives a crash landing on a Quaestum farming planet with the details of the crash unknown until much later. Daemon has amnesia from the crash and starts attacking a nearby town until he's defeated by a Lacertan master.
The master calms Daemon down and takes him in as a son. He trains Daemon to fight intelligently and to be a respectable person. Even though he enjoys fighting, hunting is all he gets to do.

Combat experience and constant practiceShokunin
Shokunin lands on one of the Quaestum Union's core planets in a Magni escape pod. He was unconscious and being a Magni himself paired with the Quaestum's shakey relations with the Magni Empire, he is immediately suspect. He is taken to the Queastum capital for questioning and handed to the government. Shokunin's brain had been tampered with, modified, and the combination of the tampering of his brain and whatever accident sent him to an escape pod cased him permanent memory loss.
Angel and Daemon, at this point full members of the Quaestum military, greet him when he wakes up since they both also had mysterious pasts. The government deems him to not be a threat and tests his abilities to see if he would be a valuable recruit. Shokunin turns out to have extensive engineering knowledge and Magni military training. Angel and Daemon manage to get him recruited to the military's trans-dimensional branch with themselves.

Dao was a Lacertan who grew up on a crime-ridden planet, the single territory of the United Syndicate. Law enforcement is weak so citizens are often hired for amnesty or for money. Some of these people arrested Dao for killing several people in a fight.
A major crime organization in the area breaks him out of jail and hires him as a hit man, having been impressed by his ability. After working for them for a while, they stop paying him as well. Dao decides to take the opportunity of a price on this boss's head to go solo.
At one point, Dao tries to take a bounty on a criminal called Entropy, but is outsmarted and gets attacked by an illegal weapon with a degenerating enzyme. His face and hands were disfigured beyond repair, causing his wrists to be skinnier and his snout to be removed, leaving him as the only Lacertan with a flat face.
Over time, Dao buys several body modifications to assist in his work and caught the attention of the Magni Empire. Dao gets rid of certain targets for a good price, and even gets sent to other dimensions if Shinka doesn't think his regular soldiers can get the job done.
