Counted among its supporters, Aaron arrives to learn about the V-Gage Educator as a representative of the Boy Scouts, but that isn't what Yuri should be worried about.

Lotus is the perfect subject for capture and conversion, and Claire is under strict orders to bring her in for a fun time of psyche annihilation and unorthodox reprogramming. Understandably, Lotus isn't exactly cool with that, and being a Darkstalker whose favorite hobbies range from stabbings to variation of stabbings, Claire may be in for the fight of her life to contain this psychopath. - created on 18:35:51 09/03/2017 by Claire and last modified on 12:27:09 09/06/2017.
