They lived normal lives, in a normal city. They attended a normal college, and so they would have continued down their normal, everyday paths through adulthood; through birth, life, and eventually death.

A man with violet eyes and silver hair appears and outlines the conditions for regaining your freedom, then vanishes somehow - even though the room has no doors nor windows. There is an average-sized crate off to the side of the room.
