The origins of sub-dermal LEDs is unknown but thought to have been developed in clubs outside Rivertown which were frequented by rich kids when that part of Palomar City was all abandoned warehouses for late night vice. At first they were small constellations of light-emitting tattoos, punched just under the skin, on arms and foreheads. Later they transformed into elaborate colors and full sleeves of light.
As Rivertown evolved into a closed society, its citizens have always been rumored to have adapted to their dark environment. The latest rumor (editor’s note: unsubstantiated) is that their ‘flash’ is now all controlled by the user’s thought, movement and environment.
