Number One was one of the Garde who were chosen by the Elders to escape Lorien, survive the Mogadorian Invasion and grow to take their place as one of the next generation of Elders. Her Cêpan's name was Hilde. They started their travels in America, but when One started to draw attention to them, they quickly fled to Malaysia where they were ultimately tracked and killed. One's body was taken to Ashwood Estates where she was wired up to a Mogadorian, named Adamus Sutekh, in order to trial a memory transfer device. A ghost version of One was downloaded into Adamus' mind.
Appearance and TraitsEdit
One is described as beautiful, tanned skin with long blonde hair. Had she survived, she would have been the oldest of the last remaining Garde on Earth.
One had a strong character, stern and defiant. She confronts Adam, without fear, as he raids her memories. One's personality is often Adam's motivation for taking major action towards attemting to aid the Garde.
One enjoyed surfing and spending time on the beach in California.
Some of One's earliest memories include; her fifth/sixth birthday, in a colourful sunlit banquet hall surrounded by loric in fancy dresses and suits, singing to her, and walking through a field collecting flowers. When Lorien was invaded by the Mogadorians, Hilde and One were the first to arrive at the airstrip and hence the reason she became "Number One", she was unfortunate because in order for the other Garde to be killed, they had to be killed in sequence, meaning that One never had the luxury of being protected by said charm.
Shortly before departure, One watches in admiration and fear as a man defends them against a Piken.
One arrived on Earth after a year of travel. After landing, One and Hilde initially started hiding in America and travelled to their first destination in Mexico. When Hilde thought she saw a Mogadorian in the city she packed up and left for Austin, Texas where One joined her first school. As she got older, the teenage side of her that longed for a normal life showed in her more and more and her relationship with Hilde became strained. She soon began to slack on her training and sneaking out to meet her friends, at school one day she punched a cheerleader. This lead to another move, this time to California.
One liked to surf and met a boy named Wade. She decided to try and impress him by shoplifting and was caught. Pictures of her face and her ankle scar were taken by the police. They immediately left America and headed to Malaysia.
They had settled in a hut on the bank of a river. Hilde tries to awaken One when the Mogadorians arrive but they were too late to escape. She fights skillfully but is eventually shot with a Mogadorian blaster and dies soon after. One screams and, in so doing, she creates an earthquake. A new legacy develops and is expelled when she stamps her feet. It is not enough to hold the Mogadorians back for long and she quickly grows tired. The remaining Mogadorians overwhelm her and she is stabbed through her back.
Implications of One's DeathEdit
One's scar burned intself into the ankle of the other eight Garde.
One's body is brought back to Ashwood Estates, she is attached to a machine and the General's teenage son, Adamus Sutekh (Adam). The device was designed to allow the transfer of memories still stored in One's mind. Adam spends three years in a coma while he views her memories, he keeps them to himself, claiming the experiment did not work.
Adam subconsciously created a Ghost-Version of One based on the information transferred through the memory extraction.
- Main article: Ghost-One
- One was the oldest of the Loric children sent to Earth
- As of right now, it is unclear whether Number One actually lives on inside of Adam, or if she is just a figment of his imagination that he uses to help him rationalize his decision making.
- One never experienced the Loric Charm.
- Other than telekinesis, One was never training her Legacies, since she had none of them. Her first real Legacy was Earthquake Generation, which she suddenly received when the Mogs were attacking her.
- One is the only Loric that ever fell for a Mogadorian.
- If One had not been killed by Mogadorians, she would be 21 years old and probably would have developed all her Legacies, including her Master Legacy.
