So, one day, she escapes into the world of Gun Gale Online and creates a new character called Llenn, who is only 5 feet tall and has a huge love for the color pink. One day she meets Pitohui, another female player, who convinces her to participate in “Squad Jam”, which is basically a team battle royale.
