The Guild Master’s General separates himself from the scurry of reporters and Alexand Merek fans, as the two women, the reporter Bizzi Gray, who he rescued not so long ago, and Alexand Merek, herself, approach. (See Unbound Boxes Limping Gods: Disconnected Stories. Issue # 28: Cordelia (Bizzi) Gray)
Cordelia (Bizzi) Gray is a reporter working for 101 Downtime News, which specialises in celebrity live news reports. She has just been given the heads up that the reclusive Alexand Merek has been spotted inside the School of Applied Resurrection. She has pushed her way to the front of the building, along with her camera crew, to where she can see Alexand Merek, beside her wife and a strange woman with tattoos on her face resurrecting four dead children in front of a school of Time Academy students.
Alexand shows Anya to her room, although it is mid-day to the ex- Haernyara, who paces back downstairs to explore the mansion. Anya is not the first enemy slave that Alexand and Katherine have helped rehabilitate, but she is the most significant so far, in terms of affecting Alexand’s own past life. (For Tori. Thank you for taking me to the other side of the galaxy.)
Future Alexand, in the guise of a Kyo-ashita guard, has been charged with the custody of Anya Ranyevzsky.
Disguised as a Kyo-ashita guard, Future Alexand (although not an intruder on the ship) thought it best to observe the events of the past, incognito. Her mission in this time was not purely to visit Katherine, but to take part in an event which set in motion a series of occurrences, leading to a cataclysm in her own past self’s life.
Asenath Bomani, president of the rebellion, woke in her cabin to the sound of the ship’s intruder alarm. Kyo-ashita guards appeared at the foot of her bed, to escort her to the High Council chamber. She quickly transformed herself into the leader everyone would expect at such a time as this. Flanked by Kyo-ashita, President Bomani marched to the High council chamber, to meet with the captured intruder, and to consult her advisors.
