At the age of five, Subject Five was paired with a psychologist by the name of Nakamatsu Taro, and she became what others called 'the favorite'; but this wasn't anything to brag about as the Doctor was known to suffer from DID and would regularly switch to his aggressive alter with her. While Subject Five was at a loss as to why this happened, she was quick to adapt before moving up as a Seraphium, the disconnect between herself and her emotions was perhaps the only thing that managed to retain her sanity throughout the entire ordeal. By ten she was diagnosed with Alexythemia, by twelve Doctor Nakamatsu suspected several other personality and mental disorders, such as low grade Autism. The more he dissected into Subject Five, figuritively and literally, the more guilt his main alter felt for what the aggressive alter was doing.
This only grew worse when a new doctor came onto the team, named Otaka Shiji, his ideas were a mixture of barbaric and absolutely genius; as his studies mainly focused in the unnatural things of the world-- the very things that Subject Five refuted entirely as they went against everything logical. The Supernatural. Doctor Otaka desired to create super soldiers for Japan, even if the cost was a few lives among the Subjects. It was only when the death toll became too much that Otaka was removed from the team, but this sadly came at a price of dying by the hands of the Subjects he desired to experiment on. Subject Five was sent out, yet his elusive nature made it easy for him to turn the tables on her instead for capture and experimentation. It was the only time that Subject Five could recall a sense of what she could only assume to be terror overcoming her, as his experiments lead to the death of three women that were locked inside the basement of some building she could not identify. However, by some stroke of luck, she survived. Several weeks afterwards was spent on making sure she was mentally stable enough to return to the field, once again leaving her in the hands of Doctor Nakamatasu.
So when she quietly mentioned desiring to leave at fourteen, Subject Five was surprised to see Doctor Nakamatsu encourage her. Even more surprising was that he not only allowed her escape during a mission, but he even went as far as to cover her tracks when she could not until he lost her himself. By fifteen, Subject Five-- better known simply as S or Five at this time, was trained not only in combat, but the inner workings of the very organization she was running from. She fleed to America, and from there learned the dark truth about The Project:
It was better known as The Project of Guardian Angels, a branch in every country that participated in World War Two opening not long after the demise of the Nazi Party. The mission behind the program was to give homes to those that had none or those who desired a lifetime long job, training them for the specific task of finding and erasing the existence of corrupt individuals in the world; hoping to remove any possibility of another world war. Ironically, this only heightened the possibility, as the world was not aware of the program's existence, yet completely aware of the disappearances of Religious and Political individuals of power. Along with this, those that were apart of the Axis-- while allowed their branches-- were not allowed to do anything more than defend themselves; yet both Japan and Germany specifically devolved into Human Experimentation.
The scariest and most unbelievable part was that it actually worked: Those that were experimented on did gain something for their suffering, unnatural power. It seemed random, but these 'metahumans' were indeed given capbilities well outside of human control, such as Blood Manipulation for the deadliest, or simply healing from a single touch. And while Subject Five dismissed these claims as nothing but delusions, she was also a successful experiment, gaining the ability to not just sense death- but for a few split seconds she can also see the reapers that come for the souls of the dead.
Sadly, due to the treaty breach, both German and Japanese branches were condemned to shut down entirely. As expected, Germany and Japan retaliated by moving underground with their Subjects and Experiments, and the order to kill any associated with these branches on sight was given. This sadly put Subject Five in a perculiar situation, as while she was not apart of the Japanese branch anymore, she was associated through Doctor Nakamatasu. Thus the young woman was left with no choice but to run whenever she could, what else could you do when you're stuck between a rock and a hard place?~
