Helga Ritter has orchestrated the rescue of Amanojuko lords and ladies, from the ruins of the city. She has rounded up guards from all over the Russian peninsula, to aid her. But the most important Amanojuko is missing.
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)
