In the North Mural club and party scene, Bracey Wray he/himis a dealer whose high-end drugs give psychedelic effects found nowhere else.

His recklessness, showcased most dramatically in the infamous underground stranger fighting rings, however, raises the question – is he truly selfless or does his penchant for danger hide a secret death wish?

He claims not to see the way his indecipherable drawings cast light on a larger structure, but what does this shy boy see that we don’t?
