As a child, I knew that I would become a Reflect. I was drawn to the Light, not as a moth to flame, but as a thirsty soul to water. The Light gave me life and purpose. The Light is the air I breathe, the ground I walk on, the food I eat. Without the Light, my life would be more than darkness. I would be empty.
— from the biography of Reflect Rendel
