Generals Edith MehXian and Xan Medani look on from a distance, phased out of focus, witnessing, but being unable to take part in, a past conversation between their adopted daughter, Inajda and their granddaughter, Alexand.
After leaving her mother and the Haernyara next to the burnt-out hut, Alexand walked back into Ulaanbaatar to tell Jochi’s mother news that he was dead. Understandably the family was devastated and Alexand left them alone to grieve.
After being given immortality by Helga Ritter, Agnes Harlaut is in Moscow, and has been charged with handling the detention and interrogation of subversives acting outside the Russian wall. She has in her custody a group of Mongolian teenagers who took incriminating photographs of Amanojuko delegates.
Following orders, Alexand returned to her post in Ulaanbaatar, sensing that the danger for the people of this city had moved north across the Russian border, and that Abouna had sent her there to deactivate her.
Reports of locals disappearing in the Mongolian Capital, had Field Marshal Panak station Colonel Merek to Ulaanbaatar to investigate, and have her troops act as a front-line guard for the people of that city. Other major cities bordering the Amanojuko’s wall around Russia, have reported similar disappearances, and Panak has placed his troops in all affected border cities to send a message to the Amanojuko.
