The PC is a test subject at Corona Labs in Mount Airy, MD. No name or gender are ever provided for this character. The game begins at 7:30 PM with the PC in a test chamber being observed by one of the scientists, Dr. Marnie Ephart. The PC is instructed to guess at the symbols on a set of Zener cards that Dr. Ephart is examining.
