Inajda left Xan, Alexand and Jarad in the Prison of Souls, and with a vial of Xan’s precious blood, went searching for the elusive Anesidor Sumian, so that Sumian could synthesise Xan’s blood to allow it to create blood weapons to fight the Amanojuko.
Future Alexand had woken early, as instructed by her Guild Master (Future Heyem Merek,) she is ready to take a very nervous Anya to the past, to carry out a fake assassination, which will set a series of events in motion.
After reading his mother’s Timeline Book, Xan had taken the captured Amanojuko agent to the Prison of Souls, realising that Inajda would be there too, and that his family desperately needed him, or rather his blood.
Inajda thought it far too risky to take Alexand and Jarad to the Kyuunansen, as a temporary sanctuary, due to the fact Katherine De Somme is alive and well, onboard. Needing to avoid any potential encounters, (paradoxes) Inajda had no choice but to take her fleeing family to the most secure place in the whole world. The Prison of Souls.
Helga Ritter stands alone in the cloning laboratory, onboard her Floating Asylum ship. She had ordered three agents to capture Heyem Merek, so that she could conduct more intense experiments into the bioweapon’s technology in the Merek twin’s DNA.
Xan and Edith, followed Heyem along the pathway, phased out of focus so that Heyem could not detect them. They both materialised as three Amanojuko agents were also stalking Heyem and appeared on the pathway. The agents surround Heyem in an attempt to abduct her.
