File 1: The Jett Family: "Lorraine Jett was the second child of Howard and Sarah Jett, some of this facility's most important members. Her parents signed up for this lab during its first stages of productivity in November, 1974, having married a year later. Sarah became pregnant on January 6th, 1976. She gave birth to Alan on September 2nd, with a notable diagnosis of premature birth, though nothing too serious. Unfortunately, Howard and Sarah could not raise him and run a highly advanced laboratory at the same time, much to their regret. Thus, he was left in the care of his grandfather, Clarence until reaching the age of 17, at which point he was brought back to the lab to work with them, in a familiar tradition to Howard. Alan tried an experiment in his parents' research by becoming a hero to study: Using an untested DNA-altering compound, he gained conscious control over the amount of growth hormones in his body (very low amounts result in shrinkage to the size of an ant, while beyond-average amounts prompt up to the height of a skyscraper). Lora was born two years later, and also was sent to grow up within Clarence's care. However, Lora's parents did not take her into the lab, for they were unable to contact her. (See below)"
File 2: Clarence Xavier Jett: "Clarence Jett was born on August 21st, 1937, raised among a family of farmers during the Great Depression. His mother was killed in a car accident in 1942, leaving Clarence to grow up under the overbearing rule of his authoritarian father. The crushing stress of being watched by him 75% of every day caused Clarence to become a hardened, bitter, and some would say insane man. However, this subsided by some degree when he managed to grow up, leave home, and have children. He married Elena Wentworth on March 13th, 1957, and Howard was born a year later. With a degree in Theoretical physics, Clarence taught his son well in the fields of science, outside of regular school hours, which prompted Howard to sign up for the F.I.N.D.R. program when he came of age. In particular, he wanted to get down to the core of how superheroes got their powers. As a child, he loved comic books and thought one day the means to become a superhero would grow to be reality someday. Now, Howard wanted to challenge science against comics, as far-fetched as it sounded to his parents. When his son left them, however, Clarence's confidence in his son's dreams was swiftly diminished when both he and his son witnessed Elena murdered by an unnamed super-villain using an energy beam fired from his hand. While Howard was simply mentally scarred and wary of villains, Clarence slowly picked up a grudge against ALL super-powered humans, thus tried to divert Lora and Alan away from research into metahumans and towards other forms of theoretical physics...to no avail. Lora Jett was left in her grandfather's care for a longer period of time than her brother's, because he kept all communications to her parents hidden during that time. Finally in 2019, after a growing period of depression and vengeance against his family's motive, he secretly stole F.I.N.D.R. Labs' research sub and murdered his own children by drowning them in the lake near the labs. A faction of villains joined him in a combined plan to take down Lora and Alan Jett, seeing as they were superheroes now, too. Alan tried to take Clarence down, but he was captured in the process, though not before contacting his sister to follow him. They managed to defeat Clarence and the allied villains, placing their own grandfather in jail. He died in prison at the age of 82 and was buried with Howard and Sarah in the cemetery of St. Quentin's Baptist Church."
File 3: Lorraine Jett: "In 1997, being aware of her grandfather's growing age and slowly weakening vigilance over her, Lora stopped coming back home a few weeks after graduating high school, and temporarily registered herself into a foster care program, a better fate than being ruled by a dictator. As time went on, Lora forgot about her family and discovered how she had a thing for candy – though not to the point of addiction. Tragically, she did not go to college since her family relationship was so shaky and she had no money of her own. However, in 2003, Lora found a decent job at a small shop called "Candy Castle", located in the recently founded city of Centropolis, California. 4 years later, Lora unknowingly regained her traditional interest in superheroes by becoming one herself. She originally used the rather ungainly title "Lovergum" as a seductive elastic woman, and fought crime quite efficiently for two years more – quite a few male villains were easily seduced by her costume and powers. After that, Lora retired for 10 years to see how crime would go without her. (And in which time she succeeded in achieving an online Bachelor's degree) Then she returned with a new costume and a new title: "Trinity". Alan Jett had been watching his sister from afar in the labs, waiting for the right time to contact her. When their parents were captured and killed by his grandfather in 2019, he hid a coded message in Lora's new costume for her to follow while he chased down Grandfather Clarence. Thankfully, Lora had been biometrically registered into the lab system since birth, allowing access to the facility's top secret locales to find her brother. Some scientists have suggested studying how Lora's own powers work, but being a member of this lab's founders; that would be too risky. We see a bright future for Ms. Jett in her career as a superheroine, as well as her brother's."
File 4: Our Motives: "F.I.N.D.R. Laboratories, originally designed to explore unknown branches of science, has recently been geared exclusively towards the study of super-heroes and –heroines. Howard Jett had engineered this motive in the '70's and a team of researchers has been attempting to come up with ways of how to go about it. The principle of cryonic preservation became reality in December, 2013 at a NASA research breakthrough in Japan. The following year, we collected 30 new heroes and villains, installed cryonic pods for each of them and froze the subjects for an experimental period of 3 months, or so we intended. Unfortunately, this method failed. We kept them frozen until Dr. Nigel Kenneth and Sarah Jett compiled blueprints for a liquid preservation system that our engineers had intended to create in 2015, but we had to construct that method on our own. A successful test on a lab rat was performed in 2017, but two years ahead, Howard and Sarah disappeared. It was later reported that Clarence Jett had stolen the facility's old research submarine and drowned them. The idea was that any test subjects would simply undergo a series of tests and experiments - but in ways that would not harm them – over a period of 2-3 months, and then be safely released. But the aforementioned event disrupted that goal upon its first trial in 2014 and stretched the period over years with no way to properly study the heroes and villains until October 2019, when Dr. Kenneth and Alan successfully built 30 liquid preservation pods to move the frozen heroes and villains to. Sadly, this was foiled as well when Lora Jett's primary adversary, 'Mita' (MY-tah) released the 15 stored villains for her purposes, prompting Lora and Dr. Kenneth to in turn release the heroes to help their side. Fortunately, though, Dr. Kenneth passed along some handwritten notes to the genetics team, and discovered some interesting finds, though we cannot yet be certain if this is the result we aimed for all these years. The notes detailed that certain amino acids in the DNA of all 30 subjects were altered subtly in ways that defied all natural laws. In essence, through the events detailed in each of the subjects, their DNA was changed to forms completely alien to the human body; (ie: to rock, plant, crustacean, etc.) and the effects of these changes created superhuman abilities in them. We do not yet know the reason for how these gifts came to be, but what is clear is that nothing harmful to the human body was involved. This presents a great milestone in realizing one of mankind's dreams, though not something we would want to show to the public. Such an event would change the face of the Earth as we know it. Once Lora Jett and her brother return with the subjects, we will conduct some safe tests to see how their powers work. After that, the heroes and villains shall go free. [Awaiting further information.]"
This deviation will shed some light on some plot holes that may have been confusing fans of Lora Jett. Now you will know a little more about what her past was like and what that mysterious lab in the mountains was for.
