Audio Play / Alien Abduction Role Play

Go To

This is an ASMR role play audio created by Canadian ASMR voice actressMacalda Reye, who normally specializes in Darker and Edgier ASMR roleplay audio involving Dark Fantasy and Horror.

This is by far her longest series to date, featuring extensive world-building and character development. The first episode starts out as an atmospheric ASMR where an 11ft tall alien woman attends to the viewer and runs experiments on them. It quickly becomes apparent that she is not all there in the head when she coldly tells you that your species may not meet her society's standard for sapience, and talks about wanting to eat you, slathering her tongue all over your face, even when she admits that her behavior would be frowned upon by her crewmates and employer. While she does eventually stop and admit to her romantic feelings for you, your troubles are far from over.

Individual videos are available here.

Alternatively, it has also been compiled into a single video.

The series was followed by a sequel/spinoff, which can be viewed here.

Tropes that apply to Alien Abduction Roleplay include:

  • Aggressive Submissive: Subject 50499-A becomes this, demanding that Ackt engage in risky mouthplay with them, even when she is increasingly apprehensive about it. This ends very badly for everybody on board the ship.
  • Alien Abduction: The very premise of the work.
  • Aliens Are Bastards: zig-zagged, but ultimately subverted. Most of them are not intentionally malicious, but they almost victimize humanity in their incompetence. It's later revealed that even herbivores agree that the standards for sapience in the alien society aren't exactly logical or fair. Indeed, aliens aren't bastards, they're just flawed.
  • Alien Catnip: A rare instance of this trope being Played for Horror. Ackt feels an irrational desire to eat the humans, and it's later revealed that her reaction to human blood resembles that of a chemical addiction.
  • Aliens Speaking English: Justified in that the aliens have a translator implant installed in their skulls permitting them to speak any language uploaded to their device, seeing that manually learning a language takes too long. Ackt also tells Subject 50499-A about the possibility of them getting their own too.
  • All-Loving Hero: It's quite clear that Subject 50499-A has the patience of Job when dealing with the aliens. They genuinely love Acktreal despite the horrible things she said and did, and were even willing to sacrifice their own life in part 11 for the sake of the rest of the crew, though Kyra ended up doing so instead.
  • Alone with the Psycho: Both humans' time alone with Ackt, since Ackt threatened to eat them during her visits to their cells, and even put them inside her mouth and tasted them each.
    • Evianporial invokes this by removing Ackt's venom glands to ensure she is more likely to go feral, sabotages the communications, murders Tori and smears her blood all over the holding bay to provoke a feeding frenzy from Ackt, and abandons the rest of the crew to be eaten.
  • Always Chaotic Evil: While discussing her species' prehistory with Subject 50499-A, Ackt brings up the origin of her species' name, "Enxion" which is translated from a dead language to mean, "Pellucid Demon" or "Evil Creature," implying that this is what other races once thought of her kind.
    • It's strongly implied that Evianporial still thinks this way of Enxions, however.
  • Anti-Villain: Acktreal Domma cares a great deal for her crewmates, and even for the human test subjects under her care, only being cold with the latter because of her need to focus and do her job properly. However, something about the two humans is adversely affecting her mental health, causing her to slowly revert back to her primitive, feral state.
  • Apologetic Attacker: Hiboritch apologizes to Subject 50499-A shortly before stabbing them in the arm to intentionally trigger a feral episode from Ackt in order to dispose of a pair of space pirates.
  • Artistic License – Biology: In the context of the story, using humans as livestock is already a bad idea because they apparently have a cocktail of chemicals in their blood that drives carnivore species insane. However, it's a bad idea regardless because humans have an extremely slow breeding cycle, are not capable of eating normally inedible biomass like grass, have very little calories compared to other animals, etc.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: In the first episode, Ackt expresses frustration at not legally being allowed to eat humans while licking Subject 50499-A's face. During her second feral episode, she is given Tori's remains to eat in an attempt to calm her down, and she's very unhappy about it when she becomes lucid again.
  • Bestiality Is Depraved: A triple subversion. Ackt tells Subject 50499-A that Interspecies Romance in alien society is commonplace and mainstream, but only between sapient species. By the third video, Acktreal recognizes that humanity is sapient enough to qualify for full rights but notes the possibility that her government wouldn't see it the same way. Thus, she realizes that if she continues to pursue a relationship with Subject 50499-A if they fail to get full rights, other aliens would potentially see it as statutory zoophilia unless she kept it a secret. Ultimately subverted as humanity does gain their rights, and her secret is exposed. The rest of the crew is reasonably sympathetic to Ackt, with the exception of Evianporial
    • Even before then, Ackt pretends to be confused by the thought of Subject 50499-A being attracted to her, sexually or otherwise, and becomes defensive when they suggest that she feels the same way about them.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Evianporial's plan fails, and he is forced to go into hiding in deep space, where other racist "cultists" are hanging out. Due to their failure to keep Tori alive, and other horrific mistakes, they delay contacting Earth by another six months to figure out their plan of action when contacting them. Ackt is finally told what happened to Kyra, and comes to terms with it. Oh yeah, and Subject 50499-A gets to hook up with her.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Acktreal describes Hiboritch as the nicest, most awkward person she knows, and yet not even he is above slaughtering two pirates by proxy by deliberately setting off a feral episode from Ackt.
  • Bizarre Human Biology: When the nurse Deju is escorting Subject 50499-A, she notes several things about human biology she learned from their tests that she found interesting. Two of them are obscure but known, that our earwax is a type of sweat and that we posses a collection of neurons in our stomach lining. It also turns out that humans also produce a glowing light but we aren't capable of seeing it for ourselves.
  • Black Speech: Subverted. The language spoken by Acktreal sounds very harsh and evil-sounding, almost like the rasping noise made by the ghosts from The Grudge, but the characters who speak it aren't evil. Ackt later explains to Subject 50499-A that it's a language composed of frequencies and pitches rather than words and tells them about the possibility of them getting an implant to help them speak it too.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: Whatever the aliens' standards for sapience is, it's made clear that developing complex languages, civilizations, and technologies doesn't cut it. By their standards, humanity barely qualified for full rights, narrowly avoiding AUPL (protected animal) or DLPP (livestock) classification. Later on Acktreal states that the alien's measure sapience more by how well they connect with others, unlike humans who measure it more by cognitive ability and capacity for abstract thought. In the spinoff with Eravin Aumbra, it's eventually subverted. It's revealed that this is actually a major point of contention between herbivores and carnivores, because the latter tend to be biased in favor of new species being classified as livestock, much to the chagrin of herbivores and the rare omnivore who would be more inclined to judge sapience more similarly to how humanity would.
  • Boldly Coming: The last bit of part 14 is implied to be the aftermath of a night of rough sex between Ackt and Subject 50499-A
  • Break the Haughty: Pretty much the entire crew faces this. It's made clear in the prequel that none of them see humanity as anything else but potential livestock for carnivore species, and it comes to a complete surprise to all of them when they are proven wrong. Even after they resolve to keep Tori and Subject 50499-A safe, things still get worse for them, as Acktreal slowly sinks into a feeding frenzy and gives them a taste of what it's like to be preyed on by a ravenous, yet sapient predator.
  • Brown Note Being: Downplayed, but the rest of the crew theorize that there is something about humanity that is causing Acktreal to revert to a feral state of mind. Fortunately they nail it down eventually and remove Subject 50499-A's pheromone glands so that Ackt can go off her meds.
  • Chemically-Induced Insanity: It's clear that some chemical or another is driving Acktreal insane. The entire crew hypothesizes that it's hormones or pheromones coming from the two human test subjects.
  • Consuming Passion: During Acktreal's feral episodes, she expresses romantic love for Subject 50499-A and a desire to messily devour them in the same breath.
  • Cuteness Overload: Ackt briefly overcome by this in part 2 when she starts toying with Subject 50499-A, but quickly pulls herself out of it and tries to go back into Tsundere mode.
Ackt: Aw! I kinda wanna take you out of these restraints, but that would get me terminated. I just want to take you out and hold you, you're so small!
  • Darker and Edgier: Like a good deal of Macalda Reye's work, this series is a darker take on the ASMR genre and has a very dark storyline involving Psychological Horror and drama.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: For both Ackt and Subject 50499-A.
  • Emotional Regression: Implied during Ackt's second feral episode. She cries for her mother and complains loudly that she's having a bad dream, even as she is drooling and craving live meat to eat.
  • Evil Is Bigger: Subverted with Acktreal, who is the largest crewmember but is hardly any more evil than Bruce the shark. Played straight with Evianporial, the second largest.
  • Fantastic Racism: Despite Ackt telling Subject 50499-A that multi-species societies have fewer issues with racism or specism than single-species societies, herbivores are clearly still apprehensive around carnivores. Evianporial, on the other hand has some rather deep-seated hatred for Enxions, and it's even revealed in part 14 that he is a member of an anti-enxion cult that bears uncomfortable similarities to earth's Ku Klux Klan.
    • Tori doesn't shy away from showing her contempt for any crew members she talks with, including Zedjichs who tries to comfort her. Considering that Acktreal terrorized her with threats to eat her, and Zedjichs was the one who personally brought her onto the ship, this is kinda understandable.
    • Ackt implies in part 13 that there is a greater amount of tension between carnivore and herbivore species than before, since the herbivores are very upset with how poorly humanity's species classification went and are possibly blaming carnivores in general for it.
    • Becomes even more blatant in part 14 when Ackt admits that she was often mistreated as a child for being a carnivore, and for stepping out of line with her herbivorous peers. Later on, it is revealed that a very similar species to humanity was used explicitly to control and enslave enxions.
    • Eravin Aumbra later reveals that the prejudice isn't completely without reason, as herbivores and carnivores can't even agree on what the standards for sapience should be, as the latter are incredibly biased in favor of new species being graded as livestock. The concern that the carnivores have the standards set so high that they wind up eating sapient species is a perfectly valid one.
  • Foreshadowing: In the very first video, when Ackt gets done taste-testing Subject 50499-A, she tells them that they will see them tonight. Her tone of voice isn't necessarily hungry in the literal sense, but downright amorous, almost lustful.
  • For Want of a Nail: If only Zedjichs suggested to lock Ackt inside one of the recently vacated testing cells a lot sooner than she did, Kyra would still be alive.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Turns out getting attacked by space pirates is enough to warrant Hiboritch stabbing Subject 50499-A in the arm in order to trigger a feral episode from Ackt in the hopes that she will devour them.
  • Heel Realization: Ackt has one in part 2 after a night of licking and toying with her human test subject, but her Heel–Face Turn wouldn't be solidified until part 3.
    • It's revealed in part 13 that alien society is so horrified at themselves for how they miscategorized humanity (as livestock) that Caridal's government is plunged into chaos, and there is greater tension between herbivore and carnivore species than before. She also tells them that the Council will "be all over [them]," and very anxious to make things up to humanity, particularly the surviving test subjects.
  • Heel–Face Turn: When she first meets the two humans, Ackt mentions the legal status of humans under her government and seems very much biased in favor of them being classified as "animals" so she can legally eat them. As she spends time with Subject 50499-A, she sees the two more as equals, and falls in love with Subject 50499-A. She decides to protect them if they fail to get their rights. However, much to her horror, her craving for human flesh still hasn't gone away.
    • The prequel emphasizes that all of the crewmembers, AND alien society as a whole, have undergone this when finding out the truth about humanity.
  • Humanity on Trial: It's clear ever since part 1 that this trope is in play. However, they eventually rule in favor of humanity in part 8, and parts 13 and 14 make it clear how much they embarrassed themselves by trying to put humanity on trial in the first place.
  • Hypocrite: Ackt tells the human that they're unsure that humanity is sapient because of their inability to get along with each other. Over the course of the story, it's made abundantly clear that they aren't any better in this regard. Aside from Evianporial screwing Ackt over solely because of his hatred for enxions, Ackt later admits that her childhood was miserable thanks to anti-enxion prejudice. Eravin also admits that there is a good possibility that the standards were set so high because of carnivore lobbying, not because it was actually a good metric to use.
  • I Am a Monster: Ackt clearly believes this of herself after her first feral episode and admits that she wishes she were more human.
  • I Ate WHAT?!: Ackt is extremely upset when she is told that she ate Tori's remains during her second feral episode. Which makes Oovoo and Subject 50499-A more reluctant to admit that she also killed and ate Kyra as well.
  • I Love You Because I Can't Control You: It's strongly implied that one of the things Ackt admires in Subject 50499-A is their lack of fear while around her. Especially when compared to Tori, who is absolutely terrified of her. However, it's somewhat downplayed because Ackt also commends Subject 50499-A for being the most compliant test subject she ever worked with.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Acktreal Domma. She threatens to eat both Subject 50499-A and Tori when first meeting them, but eventually warms up to Subject 50499-A, and awkwardly tries to apologize to Tori for her behavior. Subject 50499-A accepts her apology, Tori does not.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: When first bringing him up, Ackt describes Evianporial as a strict, yet reasonable person. After his second appearance, it becomes apparent he is anything but.
  • Impossibly Delicious Food: Invoked by Acktreal herself in the very first video. As she licks Subject 50499-A's face, it's clear that she's very much biased in favor of humanity being classified as "livestock" for this reason. Even after her Heel–Face Turn, she still considers humanity to be impossibly delicious, and laments it as she sinks into her first feral episode.
  • In Another Man's Shoes: It's clear that none of the aliens see humanity as people and see them potentially as livestock. However, shortly after they realize their mistake and give humanity full rights instead, the crew, including Acktreal, get a taste of what it would have been like for the humans had they not gained full rights. The entire crew has to deal with the terror of a ravenous, yet sapient creature hunting them down and attempting to eat them. Ackt herself finds herself strapped down in the same chair Subject 50499-A was confined to, and has her brain scanned and tested on to figure out what is going on.
  • Kind Restraints: Ackt is forced to resort to this in order to safely transport Victoria to the holding bay due to her combative and noncompliant attitude.
    • Zedjicks later suggests doing this to Ackt herself during her second feral episode. Shortly after devouring Kyra and becoming sane again, Ackt gets the same idea and straps herself down on the chair inside of Subject 50499-A old medical cell.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: The prequel reveals that none of the crewmembers initially saw humanity as anything else but potential livestock species for carnivores at that point, to the point where even Hiboritch laughs about Tori's abduction. Later on, after humanity is given full rights instead, they get a taste of what it's like to be hunted down by a hungry, yet sapient predator when something in Subject 50499-A blood slowly drives Acktreal towards a feeding frenzy.
    • The two space pirates in part 13 attempt to take Subject 50499-A away, relishing in how much their blood will make on the market. Hiboritch slices open Subject 50499-A arm in order to trigger a feral episode from Ackt to get the two eaten.
  • Lighter and Softer: The spinoff with Eravin is considerably less dark than the original series. While there are scares with the titular alien in said video, most of the conflict involves a genuine misunderstanding between the human astronaut and an "Onderite" officer who thinks that said human is a lawbreaker.
  • Literal Maneater: Ackt is rather blunt about her desire to eat Subject 50499-A within minutes of meeting them. Even after her Heel–Face Turn, her irrational desire to eat them does not go away, much to her horror.
    • She finally gets her chance to feast on some human flesh during her second feral episode when the crew feeds her Tori's corpse in an attempt to calm her down. She is NOT happy about this.
  • Moral Myopia: At first, the aliens think of humanity as animalistic because of how they have a hard time getting along with each other, but it's apparent, through Evianporial's actions, and how Ackt describes her own childhood in part 14, that the aliens aren't any better than humanity in this regard. They do later tell Subject 50499-A that the real reason for the mishap was because humanity bore a strong resemblance to another livestock species used as biological warfare against enxions, but it's likely that they're grasping at straws then, as Ackt tells the human that despite their calm, professional demeanor, they're actually groveling at the human's feet. Gets even more egregious when Eravin reveals the possibility that the standards are set so high because of carnivore lobbying, and not because they were all that reasonable.
  • Ms. Exposition: Due to the work being an audio play, Ackt serves this role more often than not.
  • Multicultural Alien Planet: According to Acktreal, most planets with intelligent life actually have multiple sapient species develop on them with planets with only a single sapient species, like Earth, being comparatively rare. Also, according to her, these civilizations usually end up destroying themselves by the time the alien societies find them.
  • My Greatest Failure: Ackt is very ashamed of her treatment of Tori and uses it as motivation to be nicer to any human she comes into contact with.
    • her failure to keep Tori alive, and her strong desire to not make the same mistake with Subject 50499-A, almost drives her to commit suicide.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Ackt has this reaction at various points throughout the series.
    • Ackt reveals in part 13 that the multi-species society she is a part of, Caridal in particular, is horrified at themselves for what they almost did to humanity because of an error they made in classifying them.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: While they are understandably apprehensive at first, Subject 50499-A is clearly intrigued when Ackt talks about wanting to eat them. Even when Ackt apologizes for this behavior and promises to not put any more humans in her mouth, Subject 50499-A convinces her to make an exception for them and continue the mouth-play on them. They become rather aggressive about this later on, demanding that Ackt engage in riskier mouthplay with them, with disastrous results.
  • Not Afraid of You Anymore: An interesting variation. By part 2, Subject 50499-A seems very confident that they are sufficiently protected by the laws governing Ackt's society, and that the "breach of conduct" will fall through, granting them equal rights to her. They let their Nightmare Fetishist side show through, clearly enjoying the impromptu mouthplay from Ackt, and cheekily reminding her of their current species classification when she talks about the supposed inevitability of her eating them. They basically conquer her by proving too kinky to intimidate, and by their third meeting, she's nervous and jittery, and they are eerily calm.
  • Not-So-Well-Intentioned Extremist: When Ackt describes Evianporial, she describes him as being a strict, law-abiding and goodhearted kind of person. When he is exposed for illegally removing Ackt's venom glands, he angrily calls out Ackt for breaking protocol by letting Subject 50499-A out of their cell before they were approved. By this point, however, it's apparent that his only motivation is to ruin Ackt by any means possible.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Both Acktreal and the rest of her crew note that it's extremely unusual for her to be behaving in the way she is with the human subjects. She is normally very cold and aloof with her subjects, not making things more difficult or unpleasant than they need to be for either party. It's extremely unusual that she would develop feelings for a subject, or threaten to eat anyone, including those of a species that her ancestors used to hunt for food. The crew concludes that there must be something genetic or hormonal in humanity that is causing Enxion species to potentially crave them as a food source, despite never encountering each other before.
    • Everyone is surprised and shocked when Hiboritch stabs Subject 50499-A in the arm in order to trigger a feral response from Ackt in the hopes of disposing of a couple of particularly nasty space pirates. Including Ackt, who describes him as a passive, awkward, gentle person.
  • Planetary Relocation: When discussing with the protagonist about the possibility of humanity joining the multi-species society, Acktreal states that it would even be possible to move Earth so that it would be closer to their systems. However, she adds that doing so would be both very expensive and take several thousand years so its only ever been done twice in their history.
    • Possibly retconned in the spinoff, as Eravin states that it's actually a common occurance.
  • Police Brutality: Ackt and the rest of the crew are subjected to this when they are "rescued" due to being confused for space pirates because Thi-Karji's ship was still attached to theirs.
    • In the spinoff, it's implied that Eravin Aumbra seldom receives complete information when responding to calls from her superiors, leading to her using more force than needed.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Evianporial is clearly out to get Acktreal solely because of his racist attitude towards Enxions. As if it weren't blatant enough, it's revealed in part 14 that he's also a member of a cult that is clearly an extraterrestrial expy of the Ku Klux Klan
  • Predator Turned Protector: Even before meeting the humans, she's convinced that humanity will become just another food option for her species. In the ensuing videos, she reverses herself and states her intention to fight for humanity's rights and even purchase both Subject 50499-A and Victoria as pets, solely to protect them from becoming livestock. This becomes a moot point, and she admits as such after humanity successfully gains their rights.
  • Prefers Raw Meat: According to Acktreal its generally only omnivorous species that eat cooked meat while fully carnivorous ones like her like to eat theirs raw, and in some cases, still living.
  • Reality Has No Soundtrack: The only soundtrack is the soft drone of the spaceship's engine and other background noise.
  • Reluctant Psycho: Acktreal is self-aware of her increasing bloodlust and is terrified for the safety of the rest of the crew and the human test subjects formerly under her care. She (seemingly) didn't even have any mental health issues before meeting the two humans.
  • Replacement Goldfish: The events in the prequel strongly imply that the reason why Ackt becomes so emotionally attached to Subject 50499-A is because her breakup with Kyra happened mere days before.
  • Resist the Beast: Before her first feral episode, Ackt is visibly fighting against it, and warns Subject 50499-A to back away from her slowly, and gives them instructions on how to shut the door on her with the keypad.
  • Sapient Eat Sapient: Even when Ackt is not under the influence of human pheromones it's strongly implied that carnivores like her tend to be so biased in favor of newly discovered species being graded as livestock that they would gladly eat sapient creatures were it not for the herbivorous aliens keeping them grounded.
  • Second-Act Breakup: Ackt eventually decides it's not worth pursuing a relationship with Subject 50499-A if she can't get her predatory urges under control and tells Subject 50499-A that she wants to break up with them until she figures out what is going on.
  • Thrown Out the Airlock: Zedjichs suggests doing this to Ackt during her second feral episode, but Hiborich quickly shoots her down.
    • Ackt later admits that she wanted to kill herself in this manner.
  • To Serve Man: Only Acktreal feels this way, however, struggle as she might against it.
  • Up Close with the Monster: Subject 50499-A and Tori both endure this with Ackt, who clearly wants to eat them, but cannot legally do so. She contents herself for the time being with licking their faces, putting their heads in her mouth, and (in Tori's case) even deepthroating her entire body.
  • Warm Bloodbags Are Everywhere: Before the two humans were taken aboard the ship, Ackt was doing a very good job at not eating other sapient creatures, as was the rest of her species, apparently. It's not until part 8 that her self control truly begins to waver.
  • We Will Not Have Appendixes in the Future: According to Acktreal and Eravin its common for species to loss some of their traits over time due to their advanced society making such traits unnecessary. An example given is Acktreal's transparent body, she mentions that ancient Enxions had fully transparent bodies so as to ambush prey and this trait was gradually lost and its hypothesized that their bodies will eventually become fully opaque in a few thousand years, she thinks that they'll also lose their venom around the same time. Eravin mentions that her species is unusual in that they never really changed despite being space-faring for many generations.
  • Wham Line: Invoked several times by Ackt.
    • In the very first video, Ackt does performs relatively painless tests on Subject 50499-A, politely tells them to let her know if she does anything to hurt them, and even commends them for being cooperative and calm for her. But then she rather suddenly, and coldly tells Subject 50499-A that they probably won't qualify for full rights and would even make good livestock. When Subject 50499-A demands an explanation, she points out her jagged teeth, tells them that she is a carnivore, and admits that she wants to eat them. The next several minutes (and the entirety of the next video) consist of her toying with Subject 50499-A and licking them and tasting them.
    • Subverted when she tells Subject 50499-A that the last test involves her scraping out pieces of their brain and then cloning them. Even though she admits that it's the "worst test," nothing bad happens from it, and Subject 50499-A is presumably not left lobotomized or otherwise disabled by the test.
    • Played straight in part 8 shortly after Ackt spits Subject 50499-A out after deepthroating their upper body. She asks them if they want "anyone else to eat," shortly before sinking into a feral episode.
    • Once again in part 14 when Ackt states her intention to commit suicide by airlock.
  • What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: Subverted. In part 3, Ackt feigns ignorance of the concept of romantic or sexual love in a vain attempt to blow Subject 50499-A off when they flirt with her. She even makes up a story about how her society has a "breeding program" where baby-making is a loveless affair, involving only artificial insemination.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Acktreal tells Subject 50499-A that multi-species societies tend to be more stable and harmonious than single-species societies, and things like racism, sexism, or specism are almost nonexistent. While she does admit that she has to eat alone because her carnivorism makes the other crew members uncomfortable, she severely underestimated how much specism still plays a role in her society, with Evianporial outright betraying her because of her species.
  • Yandere: Threatening to eat someone within minutes of meeting them is definitely not a sign of a mentally stable, civilized being, whether or not the would-be meal fits your standards for sapience. While Ackt does apologize to both her human subjects for this behavior, her mental state only further deteriorates the longer she spends with Subject 50499-A, especially when the latter persuades her to engage in more risky mouth-play, giving her more of a taste for human flesh and driving her further over the edge. She could possibly count as a subverted instance, as she's painfully aware of the danger she poses to the one she loves, and wants to protect them from herself too.
  • You Are Number 6: Ackt refers to both her human subjects by their numbers. Subject 50499-A tells her this is dehumanizing, so she graciously stops. Zedjichs seems to have already learned Tori's name ahead of time, as she doesn't refer to her by her number at all.
