Ayla and the Late Trevor James Goodkind is the first Phase story, by Diane Castle. It was released on 2008-01-07 (Part 1, Ending in Trevor's bathtub with the words "I was doomed."), 2008-01-27 (Complete). It runs from 2006-06-21 to 2006-09-03, and is followed by Ayla and the Blackmailer.


Trevor Goodkind is one of the children of the very rich, very anti-mutant Goodkind family. When he manifests as a mutant, his family freaks out, and calls in one of their researchers, Dr. Emil Hammond, who takes him to a lab and puts him through torturous experiments for several days.

Trevor is then sent to live with his older brother Greg, who had been kicked out of the family years before for undisclosed reasons. Trevor then discovers to his surprise that the reason was that Greg was transgender. Since they had last seen each other, Greg had used the devisor drug Anlage to gain a feminine appearance, transitioning into Gracie. Gracie and her wife Janet lived modestly, having taken two boarders (also transgender), Tiffany and Amy, to help pay the bills. Unfortunately, besides being unaccustomed to Gracie's more frugal standard of living, Trevor had been taught that transgender people were as freakish as mutants, so his initial reaction is quite bad, making his first days in his new home very difficult for everyone. To make matters worse, Trevor does not have very good control over his density-shifting powers, and he is also starting to look more like a girl, and he is very unhappy about this.

Eventually, they have a confrontation with the rest of the family, and Gracie manages to convince their father that it was in the family's best interests to keep Trevor from resorting to a life of crime. Therefore, Trevor ends up receiving 300 million dollars—a fortune by any measure, but a mere pittance compared to what he would have inherited in the normal course of events.

During a trip to the bank, they end up in the way of a supervillain named Sparkler, who is trying to rob the place. Trevor fights her and wins, which saves Gracie but gets him into trouble with the police, so Trevor is sent to Whateley under the name Ayla. Beltane gives the changelings a tour, and Ayla meets Vanessa, whose interest in him is more than reciprocated. Ayla also spends some time with the other T-girls, and discovers he likes them.
