One day in the late 1990s, Myria walked into the Irvine High School computer room and spotted a boy playing Final Fantasy 5. There were two unusual things about this. The first was that Final Fantasy 5 had not actually come out in the United States. To play the 1992 Japanese game in English, you'd have to download a ROM, then install the unofficial fan translation patch that had recently begun circulating the internet. Myria knew about this patch because of the other unusual thing: She helped make it.
