At a young age, Tongchang proclaimed to have no name and no recollection of any family, and so she was labeled as having amnesia and sent to the mental asylum.
There, she met many people who confused or terrified her so she become reclusive. From time to time she would be pushed around by the guards, or a fellow patient would attack her. Around that time was when symptoms of her disorder began showing up. Sometimes the patients with less sever conditions would refer back to a conversation or action she did that she couldn't recall, but she dismissed it at the time as her own forgetfulness. She did make a couple of friends in her time there though, if you could even call it that.
There was a kind old lady who was only in the asylum because she had no where else to go in her old age. This lady loved fortune telling and taught her trade to an excited Tongchang. Having had no family before, this lady was probably the closest to her, and so she referred to her as grandma, and in turn the lady called her granddaughter. When the old lady was on the verge of passing away, she inherited her Tarot cards to Tongchang.
Though interacting with some of the patients was not always the best idea, Tongchang did get to know a very kind guard at the asylum. He was a bit stern, but Tongchang took a liking to him nonetheless, and the guard to her. The two would have long conversations while he was on duty and from time to time he would bring her books and teach her card games. Since she had no name, he asked her what her favorite story was one evening. She replied that it was Alice in Wonderland and from then on the guard called her Alice. One Christmas he rewarded her with her own deck of cards. Two years later the guard was decommissioned without another word.
At one point, a researcher visited the asylum, and imposed some questions on her. She told him about her love of cards and that she had no name, and so he referred to her as Tongchang, a princess who was first documented to have played "cards". The young girl loved history references, so she kept it. The researcher was kind, and told her a lot of interesting facts, but he only visited once.
Often times, Tongchang would see demons that other people couldn't see. When she spoke about it she was labeled as insane. Around her teen years was when her disorder became a lot more real. The "other people" inside her no longer could just take over her body but slowly formed an appearance of their own with her body as their host. She never left that asylum. That is until she was discovered by Servilius, who was on a mission to exterminate some spotted demons at the asylum. He found her trying to defend herself from them, and realized what she was. After ridding the remaining demons from the old building, he explained the situation to her and recruited her to the Guild.
-That necklace has a very sharp point.
-Transforming from one form to another is not always Tongchang's decision.
-Since Tongchang can kind of see into the future sometimes she knows how a person will die, but there is no altering it.
-Tongchang knows how she will die.
