Theory # 3 : This is by far the most unusual theory I'm postulating for tonight : Brian's family were wealthy businesspeople who were respected in their field and viewed as corporate visionaries. They had everything they could ever want and every luxury money could buy , from expensive cars, to the best food, to.....well, just about everything rich people like (I would say Caribbean vacations, but that would be self-promotion, wouldn't it? :3).......Anyway, Brian was as happy as could be with his life of luxury and opulence. Then, one day, he discovers that the usual maid has been replaced with a young girl with a foreign accent, who looks rather haggard and dirty. Brian, initially feeling shy, doesn't talk to her at first. However, as the days go by, he notices that she is becoming more frail, and there are unexplained marks on her face and arms. He eventually musters up the courage to ask her about herself, and in turn, find out more about the mystery girl. Brian learns that her name is Ameera, and she is from India. The girl tells Brian that she is from an ethnic group within India that is very in touch with nature and that they tried to prevent Brian's parents' company from authorizing the bulldozing of forests in her region. Their efforts, however, were unsuccessful, and as punishment, she and her family were placed into human trafficking to work as servants to wealthy businessmen. She was abused by Brian's father, hence the malnutrition and bruises. She reveals her trafficking number to Brian, tattooed on her arm : Number seventeen (17). Totally enraged, Brian attempts valiantly to help the poor girl escape, but is nonetheless apprehended by his father, and , as punishment for his betrayal, Ameera is sent away, never to be heard from again, and he is sent ultimately to Camp Weedonwantcha. His rage still exists to this very day, as well as his desire to protect Seventeen at camp, and to carry on the legacy of loving nature, taught to him by a kind, mysterious girl...
