Altair used to be a researcher on the Celestial Realm, considered brilliant and accomplished. In a winter day, he decided to go skiing, and when he sat on the ski lift, he saw himself in the presence of a beautiful woman. Not long on their way up, a snowstorm halted the lifts; seeing the woman appear frightened, he plucked a snow blossom from a nearby tree to offer to her. They parted ways without even knowing the other's name.

By a trick of fate, their paths would cross again in the spring.

Angry, Altair stormed out in the cold, pollution-loaded rain, and was stopped by that same woman, who shared her umbrella with him. It is then that he would learn that her name was Vega, and she was a researcher in this facility as well.
