Your name is Dave Strider and you are sixteen years old. When you were a small child, a truck carrying very dangerous, very toxic liquids crashed by your house, and the accident blinded you. Since then, you’ve moved from that small town to the big city. You now live there in an apartment with your older brother and your guide dog named Basil.
In the twelve years since you’ve lost your sight, you’ve grown accustomed to getting around despite your loss. Luckily, since it happened when you were so young, it wasn’t all that difficult to adjust, and you don’t remember enough about being able to see to miss it.
