The details of the mission were forgotten to Sana now. It was apparently very important, and she was certain she had accomplished it, but she could not remember anything about what it was or what had happened during it. Those details could have probably explained her current condition. She didn't always look like this, but over time her form had deteriorated as she lost her sense of self and forgot what she was supposed to look like. Was her name even Sana? Or was that someone else...?

Oh well, it didn't matter. She had only one goal now: to return home. Even though she had forgotten many things, she still had one vivid memory of a bright blue planet with white marbling. With only this memory to guide her, she wanders the cosmos in search of any clues that could lead her to the blue star.

---

Admittedly, Sana's backstory isn't very deep, but I also didn't really want to delve into it in order to preserve the mystery. I left both questions of "What Happened to Her" and "What is She" unanswered since I think there are a lot of interesting directions this could have gone in from a sci-fi angle. Is this the result of cosmic magic? Is she the suit itself? Or could this have been a complication of time travel?

Additionally, I would have liked to provide some idea of how her journey goes, but I couldn't find a good way to segue into it. It'd be super boring if she just space-walked in a straight line for a million years through the void, so I imagine she actually encounters other folks on her voyage, like aliens and even humans, who try to help her locate the planet she describes. You'd think the space humans would recognize the description as Earth, but this doesn't seem to be the case, possibly because these folks have never been there or because it is no longer blue. Or maybe it is gone. OR MAYBE SANA IS THE PLANET (I am going to stop here).

I listened to a lot of Space Dog while drawing/writing this.

Sounds like earth, during a new ice-age or nuclear winter,  was evacuated of all humans and eventually forgotten as the years went by, perhaps sana was on a vessel that had a malfunction in cryo-stasis, leaving them the only survivor, and leaving them exposed to the ships dark-matter drives as well, only waking them long past the time they were meant to awaken.

Awww, this is interesting, reminds me of Thirteen from
My Hero Academia

She has a scary case of Dementia, to even forget her
own form. Let's hope she can go home before she
totally deteriorates…

Here's my continuation. Maybe she'll continue her
journey as a spirit, and will possess a comet and
come home to Earth. Using advanced technology,
Humans wil try their best to stop her from reaching
Earth since she's a threat that will oblierate the planet.
Yet all she wants is to be reunited with her beloved planet...

Yeah, one of hundreds of stories on my mind right now, excluding
the one about her actually moonwalking thus going farther from Earth...

Man, I just love this picture concept, and the lack of information just makes me want to fill in the blanks. I don't know why, but the dissolving suit and ethereal being inside put me a little in mind of the sort of stories which came out of the Steward Cowley books, Spacebase 2000, The Space Warriors and the like, with their mix of science-fiction and mystery.

Love it.
