How It Begins

You are an actress playing a character called Hera Wynn in a play. Your costume is a bedraggled aqua gown, and you are carrying a locket.

The play begins in a swamp where you meet Syde Kikke. He gives you a flamingo (for a weapon) and a pez (for rations) when you explain your mission: to deliver the locket to the orphanage. He then exits the stage, leaving you amongst the trees, fallen logs, and the croaking of frogs.
