Fred Bentson is a mail carrier who is native to Dakota. Perhaps due to residue exposure after the Big Bang, he is able to portal to Metropolis when he is asleep. He lives two fully functional lives (he is a mail carrier in both cities / realities), but the insomnia begins to affect his psyche. Every time he falls asleep in one world, he wakes up in the other. In his attempt to get cured, both at Alva Technologies in Dakota and Rainforest Technologies MedLab in Metropolis, the leaders of both groups want to monopolize his power and try to experiment on him. During the experiment, he has a mental breakdown, which births Rift, who begins to merge both worlds and collapse the portal.
