Lord Filius Anderson has intensified the Amanojuko agenda, creating more positions of power for sleeper agents, and rich socialites funding his secret regime, guaranteeing them immortality leading up to his takeover in 4006.
Helga had crept out of bed, and extracted a blood sample from Heyem. With a horrible feeling inside her, she retreated back to her Floating Asylum and to her laboratory to test whether Heyem, like Alexand, has a hereditary immunity to ageing.
Helga Ritter has continued her bio-weapons project in the safety of a floating asylum ship, far away from any of the resistance. She has begun to rebuild her life’s work, acquiring test subjects, deemed potentially dangerous to the Amanojuko vision of a New World Order.

Gianti Dincrind has been instructed by Lord Anderson, to develop biological defences for Amanojuko cities, to guard against possible terrorist outbreaks, once the Amanojuko have gained full power. She has been on an experimental asylum ship, for the past few years. (This story is set three years in the future in 3994. See Story timelines for chronology)
