History

With their parents gone, the twins Alejandro and Maya had nothing to do but cling to each other. Alone and unaided, they grew to know only one kind of support—sibling. But as they grew older, taking odd jobs and making what living they could, Alejandro branched out more. He made friends and allies, and then he even fell for a girl. Through protective, he was also innocent himself, and the wiles of Gloria were enough to turn his head. Maya seemed to understand the woman better, recognizing through her suspicions any questionable behavior that was going on. But Alejandro persisted and soon he and Gloria were even to be married.

But on the eve of the wedding night, the party was discovered– with everyone in it dead. The sole survivors, Alejandro and Maya were gone. They surfaced again at a convent in Venezuela where they acted officers of the law and fled. They have been on the run ever since, killing many more along the way.
