Anya desperately wants to be saved, but she is reluctant to trust these strangers, associated with her old friend Inajda. However, she has no choice, her only option is to believe Alexand Merek’s words to be true. (For Ukraine – for peace.)
Anya has followed the eccentric future version of Alexand Merek, posing as a Kyo-ashita called Creya Johal, to the Kyo-ashita quarters, after being granted probationary sanctuary.
Future Alexand’s Guild Master has arranged for her alter ego, Creya Johal to have lodgings onboard the Kyuunansen. Future Alexand had to pretend not to care about Katherine, and they both reluctantly parted from each other, Kat returning to her laboratory and Alexand chaperoning her ward, Anya Ranyevzsky.
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.
Against protocol, Inajda has disobeyed a prime directive and materialises with her rescued prisoner, and old friend, Anya, onto the Kyuunansen, as it is the only safe haven, she could think of suitably equipped for Anya’s rehabilitation.
Katherine had analysed the blood of the newest refugees and found both women to have no sign of the Amanojuko virus.
