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.
Alexand materialises along with Inajda and the captured Haernyara, outside Jochi’s burnt out studio.
Anya wakes up in her parents’ bed, with her hands tied up, and two women sitting, arguing with each other about her (in a dead language, Russian.)
Anya has become overwhelmed with the memories of her childhood, and what she expected to be a nostalgic visit, has triggered deep emotions, and she remembers the atrocities that occurred inside her apartment before she was taken and made a Haernyara.
Inajda and Alexand have followed Inajda’s childhood friend to the old apartment building which used to be their home. Alexand wants to hold back until the Haernyara leaves, but Inajda has accepted that her hideout has been compromised, and insists on following Anya inside, to whatever end. (See Issue # 300: The Unbound Box Part 5, with reference to an optical shield in Longsheng)
Anya’s memories have been triggered by her return to Moscow. She has been awarded two hours leave, by Helga Ritter, for presenting the American president with the Bad Thing Box. Fully aware that there is a tracking device in her wrist, she is compelled to visit her parent’s old home, to return to a place full of good memories.
