After analysing Xan’s blood and determining that it is effective in neutralising Amanojuko DNA, Anesidor Sumian took Inajda to see her closest colleague, Dylwyn Sumian (no relation) to discuss weaponizing the blood for the resistance, so that they have a chance of fighting and defending themselves against these monsters in the future.
Alexand was given more surgery to reverse the temporary procedures tying her to her bed, and has spent a week recovering. She is now supposed to walk with the aid of a nurse, but is still connected to the gene therapy drip, repairing her damaged internal organs. She is taking a walk, without her nurse, down one of the many long corridors in the army base, but Abouna Panak intercepts her to give her some unexpected news.
As they walk the corridor, the guard begins talking about the Amanojuko proposals for the new world order, making Heyem shiver with the horror of it.
