Mary Peterson


For forty-three years, Mary Peterson lived a perfectly normal life. She taught gifted first-graders at an elementary magnet school in Manhattan, was married to a middle-manager at a downtown financial firm, and had three kids of her own. It wasn't the life of a novelist that she'd once imagined for herself, but aside from the odd alien or demonic invasion, it was secure and fulfilling.

But the passage of metahuman registration in New York changed everything for Mary, putting a spotlight on her dark secret: she was a mutant. The mutation was innocuous enough. Just a low-level empathy that allowed her to get a read on people's moods and better connect with her students. When she heard that all New York Public School employees would be forced to take a blood test for the X gene, Mary pushed back with her principal. When she was told that yes, she really had to take it, she quit just before the testing began.

That was enough to get the interest of the New York Department of Public Safety. Within days, they'd gained probable cause for a mandatory blood test. Mary tested positive and was placed in handcuffs, taken from her family, and sent to where all unregistered metas are sent: the Raft.

Now, thanks to two busy-body lawyers, Mary Peterson may be the focal point of the biggest legal showdown in a generation.
