Alux Ehdea came across an obstacle on her journey. A dwarf blocks her entry into the school. The two have begun to battle. Alux underestimated the dwarf, and tried casting a confusion spell on him.

Maggie has finally replied the newest student, Skylar, and told her to wait for student mentor.

The quartet of students (Madisen, River, Neo, and Charity) leave class with intention on going to lunch. Charity becomes jealous of Jill Winters, and Neo jumps in with a telepathic jibe.

Once in the courtyard, Neo tries to convince the other three to take part in something ďdaringĒ that involves leaving the school grounds. One by one, they each succumb to the peer pressure.

She then commands her minions to drop him off somewhere before flaming out, which they of course do.

Underworld

Nate finds himself in a curious position with both a bounty hunter and warlock after him. He is chased by the Bounty Hunter who binds his powers indefinitely and casts a successful truth spell on the newly created mortal. He eventually finds his way out of the Underworld and back to San Francisco.

She partially heals him, and when it proves difficult to get him to trust her, she casts a successful trust spell. Then she herself is summoned away to the Grand Flaxen Hotel by Anastasia. The now truth-speaking, trusting, and powerless mortal, Nate, makes his way out of Keiís Lair.

After stumbling around the Underworld a bit more, Nate finds himself at the Demonic Training Academy. It is here that he runs into no other than his ex-lover, Eddie.

Also at the Academy, Justin and Trevor are both enrolled and sent off to their first class by Corvus. At the training arena, Trevor is chosen to go first. Hebthyl, a nasty demon, heads off to the dungeons to retrieve his opponent. A young mortal girl, Jesse. Another demonic student, Danika, steps forward and proposes a two-on-two match, feeling a womanís sympathy towards Jesse.

Before the match, Jesse conversed with Cannan in the dungeons. Whilst Cannan delayed in eating the mortal, Jesse ignored the taunts thrown at her by the vampire. That is, until Hebthyl removes her from the cell. Soon after, Cannan mysteriously vanished for unknown reasons.
