Genie

The name given to a feral child who spent the first thirteen years of her life locked inside a bedroom. She spent most of that time strapped to a potty chair and if she was lucky, she would get wrapped up in a sleeping bag and placed in an enclosed crib.
Her father would beat her and torture her. He also barked and growled at her like a dog in-order to scare her. By the time she was discovered by L.A authorities on November 4, 1970 , she was mostly mute. She had a vocabulary of about 20 words, most of which were negative (such as “stop it” and “no more.”)
