Biography Edit

An Angel Edit

Seeing a frustrated Desna Simms at a shrimp stop, Ruval generously offers to pay for Desna's meal. The two introduce themselves before parting their ways.

Desna contacts him for a date. They spend their time on the pier. They converse about their pasts: Gregory tells her that he originally wished to be a break dancer, but after watching those around him die, he chose a field of medicine. Abruptly, Desna receives a call from Ken, forcing her to leave Gregory.

They agree to a second date at Desna's house. He is briefly acquainted with Polly and Ann before they leave. Desna and Gregory eat and speak more about their past--speaking about their previous relationships with others. They share a passionate kiss that breaks to another call for Desna, this one from Virginia. Though he expresses mild irritation, Gregory lets Desna go on with her errand and leaves.

After winning the NailPalm Competition, Gregory surprises Desna with flowers and asks if she would want to celebrate with drinks. He agrees to join her and the girls instead and is introduced to them each.[1]

An Awaited Visit Edit

Desna visits Ruval after the renewal party to apologize for her previous interruptions and for not calling him back. Before she can, however, the two share a long, passionate kiss, which quickly moves to the bedroom. While Desna kisses his body, she receives a call from Virginia. It is unknown if she and Ruval returned to their courtship and eventual sexual encounter after the call.[2]

Gregory pays Desna a visit one morning. He gifts her with flowers and shares a brief kiss, saying that he did not mind her morning breath. As Desna tries to convince him not to enter the house, Roller and Gregory share a glare before being properly introduced. The Hussers soon follow suit, all introducing themselves briefly before they leave.

Gregory questions Desna about Roller, asking about the two's relationship. He becomes pleased to hear that they are no more. They agree to contact each other later.[3]

Reveal Edit
