The Story So FarEdit

Growing up in the South, Rita has often had to fight discrimination in one form or another. Although her family was poor, she worked hard and received a scholarship to Miskatonic University, where she joined the track and field team. Now, she may have to fight for her life.

Someone is after her. That much she's sure of. She has no idea who it is or why they want her, but there have been several strange men hanging around her dorm. Last week, her roommate was assaulted while wearing Rita's jacket, and Rita feels certain that it was a case of mistaken identity.

Today, Rita spent several hours trying to convince the police to do something, but the Sheriff says that his hands are tied without more evidence. Still, while running away might be the best way to avoid this premonition of personal doom hanging over her, that's never been Rita's style. Whether her stalkers are members of the Klu Klux Klan or something even more sinister, she's going to face them head on, the same way she's been facing the world all her life.[1]

Rita has always been good at running. Growing up in the South, she was well acquainted with discrimination and knowing when to make herself scarce. When she came up to Arkham to attend Miskatonic University on a track and field scholarship, she found things had not changed as much as she had hoped. The creepy people chasing after her wore black robes, not white, but Rita ran all the same.

When her roommate was attacked in the night while wearing Rita's jacket, Rita decided to do something about it. She started looking into the matter and found the mysterious assailants were not part of the Klu Klux Klan, as she had assumed. Now Rita eagerly pursues any chance to investigate the unknown and hidden cults that flourish right under the noses of the authorities. She is done running.[2]

Clocks do not lie. In the past, people have said hurtful things to Rita. They have threatened her, deemed her inferior. But ever since she started running competitively, Rita has only cared about the clock. The clock says that Rita is faster then the rest. It says she is stronger and has trained harder. Now, she may have to fight for her life. Someone is after her. That much she's sure of. She has no idea who it is or why they want her, but there have been several strange men hanging around her dorm. They plan to make an example of her. But they will have to catch her, and the clock says they cannot.[3]
