Panel 1

Miranda Wright and Lilith stand before the throne. Miranda is looking up and Lilith is in chains and looking down. Other Jetstone units watch in the background.[edit]

Miranda Wright: The prisoner, Sire!
The Archon called Lilith!

Lilith: Your Majesty.

Tramennis: Ah, yes. My brother Ossomer did you a very great favor by turning back to Jetstone, Lilith.

Lilith: I... don't see it that way, Majesty.

Panel 2

Wide view of Tramennis seated on his throne from behind Miranda and Lillith. Two Jetstone units stand at either side of the throne, with another on the same level to the far left. Two Archons stand to the right of Miranda and Lillith, at the foot of the stairs leading to the throne. The Archon Daria stands with her arms crossed, next to Quinn who has her hands on her hips. Tramennis holds his hand up.[edit]

Tramennis: Oh, but it's true.
Before he did that, we viewed the Decrypted as un-persons, as creatures without will, unworthy of our sympathy or regard.
I wouldn't have thought to ask what you want.

Lilith: What I want?

Panel 3

A view from over Tramennis's shoulder, where he still has his right hand raised. In front of him, Lilith stands with her head lifted, but her body bowed, while Miranda glances at her. The two Archons, Daria and Quinn, observe the proceedings while various citizens of Jetstone look on.[edit]

Tramennis: Indeed. You're a creature -- a person -- of divided Loyalty, as Ossomer was.
You are an Archon beholden to the Arkendish, but Decrypted, in thrall to the Arkenpliers.

So where does your heart truly belong?

Panel 4

Close up of Lilith, Miranda, Daria, and Quinn. Lilith straightens and looks up at Tramennis. Miranda turns her attention to Lilith, with her right hand clenched in a fist. Daria continues to stand with her arms folded, while Quinn has her left hand on her hip.[edit]

Lilith: With Mistress Wanda, Your Majesty.
I have no love for Charlie.

Quinn Archon: She lies.

Miranda Wright: Silence.

Panel 5

Outside shot of Jetstone's tower.[edit]

Tramennis: So you say. Yet, you can see why Charlescomm would value you.
Charlie thinks he can turn you back. Which we now know to be possible.

And Charlie can be terribly persuasive.

I take it you'd rather not go through all of that business.

Lilith: Not if there's an alternative, Your Majesty.

Tramennis: There is.
I make you this offer, Lilith. Turn now to Jetstone, and be free of both their houses.
