Abused and abandoned, Portia must fight in order to survive the new world she has found herself in.
Portia has lived a difficult life on Earth.
Born with a large birthmark covering her left eye, she is seen as 'imperfect' by her parents, unlike her sister Marigold, who can do no wrong.
Throughout her life, Portia has suffered tribulation after tribulation as she showed no talent in any subject she was tested for.
Her imperfections were only worsened by the environment that surrounded her:
Parents who demanded excellence; A sister who was wholly exceptional; and a society that mocked her efforts.
Every day is hellish when it seems that no matter how hard you try, it is ultimately meaningless.
One day, however, Portia and the rest of her class were suddenly transported to the world of Effigia.
Thinking this is a second chance for her, Portia looks upon the situation favourably.
Only to be cast away and sent to her death due to her lack of ability.
Left for dead Portia has nothing.
Her hopes of surviving are quickly destroyed when she is almost killed by a monster that appears from the surrounding forest.
Portia resigns herself to death as she loses against even the weakest of monsters: A slime
Only this encounter will not be her end; rather, it is just the beginning.
