Dr. Smriti (I need to think of a last name here), Toby’s fiancée, is Indian who’s independent and strong minded. She comes from a well-connected East Indian family who were one of the main drivers of peace after the TriWars nearly decimated Earth. Resentment burns within Smriti as she navigates the jagged line between her family’s tradition for peace—and love for her fledgling man of war.
I specifically researched and chose Smriti’s name that means remembrance, thinking about, or calling to mind. MILK RUN uses the cerebral aspect of these meanings to explore what happens to such a strong character who must now also overcome the addiction from a drug induced telepathic brainwashing by her Telrachnid captives.
