LIFE BEFORE DEATH

Aliyah was an investigative journalist who dedicated her work to shedding light on criminal injustices against minorities – often investigating hate crimes, police brutality, and institutional corruption. Outside of work she looked after her younger sister Imani. They were living on their own for three years after their grandmother passed. Outside taking care of her sister and her aspirations for social justice, she had a love for music; singing and playing guitar. Her favorite music was R&B and soul. Her soft beauty masked her fierce and stubborn personality. She abided by her own principles to a fault and didn't budge for anyone. She’s also very frank and wears her heart on her sleeve; what you see from her is genuine. 

 

IN THE VOID

Aliyah is skeptical of the Void when she first arrives with her sister, but quickly adapts and accepts reality. She and Imani take refuge in a soul colony in Atlanta, and hope to reunite with long-lost loved ones and unravel the mystery of their deaths. In their journey, Aliyah and Imani become involved in a brewing conflict between surviving factions that stems generations. With her sense of justice, and ethnic ties to one of the factions, Aliyah investigates the conflict and tries to resolve it in order to maintain a safe and peaceful afterlife.
