Minerva was a woman who had survived for centuries, retaining her youth and changing her body by fusing with one of her children once every decade or two. The cycle had repeated up to the modern day, but when she opted to merge her body with that of her young son, something odd happened. Her personality and drive to control, desire to live were superseded by her child, and it was ultimately crushed under his, with her knowledge and understanding being passed onto him with… her new body. A form that intimidated and surprised the child, yet felt homely enough for her to accept it as her own. She has since set forth and lived a life as her own person, but with knowledge of how to elongate her life by fusing with her children, would she continue the cycle her mother began? Only time would tell.
