*Lorenz Ryedie IS in fact Lorenz Reidl of the main AC timeline, after discovering the Time Machine. He had tried to change history so A World With No Boundries would succeed in 1995, but failed, and each attempt he made to change the timeline only made it worse. Eventually, he gave up and tried to return home, only for the Time Machine to malfunction, zapping him and reversing his age back to as he was in 1995, SENT him back to 1995, '''''swapped his gender and erased his memory of everything that occured after the day he was sent back to!'''''
*Fortunately, the events that occured in the above note stabilized the timeline that Lorenz had created, breaking the unstable time loop and preventing a metaphysical paradox that would have resulted in reality itself ceasing to exist. So, as f---ed up as this NEW timeline is, it's for the best.
