“Broken” – Daniel Foytik

Welcome to The Lift. You’ve already met Victoria, but why is she trapped in this place? What happened to make her what she is?

In this week’s story, we meet Victoria near the beginning of her story in 1901.

She called out to Nikola Tesla for help in the Season One Teaser, and this week, he responds. Find out more about the building, the entities who reside there, and get some clues as to what set these things in motion.
