Jayaraman was the teenage child of psychic parents who was a teenager when the Scream arrived. Jayaraman’s parents died in the Scream, but because she had not yet manifested psychic powers, she survived.
Jayaraman’s parents had spent most of her life preparing her for the onset of the psychic powers they were sure she would one day manifest. Because of this, when they did manifest shortly after the Scream, she was capable of handling them without going insane. She kept her abilities secret at first, but eventually revealed them to a small number of psychic pupils whom she taught to control their own powers.
The legacy of Jayaraman’s teachings were kept secret for centuries, being passed down from teacher to pupil. It wasn’t until around 2900 that the heirs to her teachings established an academy where anyone who manifested psychic abilities could come to learn to control them.
