Fria Canning suffered a broken body after falling a hundred feet while climbing Mount Everest. Trapped in a hidden crevasse, Fria is visited by Agent John Fine who helped mend Fria’s body. Fria likened Agent Fine to Death and then, later, to the Devil when Agent Fine offered to save Fria from the crevasse and to help her reach the summit of Everest. Fria initially declined the offer from Agent Fine but suffered even worse pain when Agent Fine stepped back to leave. Fria ultimately accepted to be saved by Agent Fine in exchange for her agreement to complete the AI program Self. Fria was instantly transported into safety with her body and gear intact but, unable to explain the experience, simply dismissed it away as due to hypoxia.
Back home in New York, Fria was still troubled by her memories of Mount Everest. Fria associated the upsetting memories with the AI program Self. Fria then decided to set aside the AI program and gradually forgot some of her memories regarding the fall.
Fria was soon revisited by Agent Fine and was reminded of their deal in Mount Everest. Fria then recalled all of her memories but admitted that she could no longer continue in completing the AI program. As a result, Fria suffered broken bones consistent with her previous fall and quickly died of hypothermia after getting tightly enveloped in ice by Agent Fine.
