Aden remains comatose, following Kazuo's attack, but Adriana begins to have visions of him. In her dreams, he appears
and warns her to beware of a "yellow beacon." Although she cannot understand what this means, Adriana decides to take
it seriously, discussing it with Tranns who is similarly baffled. Tranns, meanwhile, anxiously accepts Lucien's offer
to move in with him.
A few letters arrive at the Phoenix House, including one for Adriana which Casey delivers. It is from a group called
the KGP (Kissing Green Peaches, according to Casey). They write that they're sending an emissary to bring medical supplies
to the noble group fighting to protect the "pure land of Shaldani." Although puzzled over the mysterious nature of the
letter, Adriana, Casey, and Cirrus agree that it could be a great blessing, given that medical supplies are so low and Aden's
condition isn't improving.
Within a few days, a young Hylian man named Tiros arrives at the House. He is taken to the office where he meets
with Adriana and Mia. They ask him what the KGP is and he explains that they are a league of Hylian healers. The
KGP has taken an interest in the fine work of the Phoenix House and wants to provide them with medical supplies. There
is no price, however, Tiros insists that he must examine all of the Phoenix Fighters. According to the KGP, there is
a terrible plague ravaging the realm and he fears some of the Phoenix Fighters may be infected. He assures them, however,
that he has the treatment.
Mia and Adriana take Tiros around the House, allowing him to examine the Phoenix Fighters with a mystical crystal, similar
to Casey's, only yellow. He diagnoses Tranns, Sito, Krysta, Cirrus, Lex, and Amorette with the disease and has them
all teleported to the bar to await treatment. In the bar, the Phoenix Fighters grow anxious. They feel fairly
certain they're not sick and that there is no plague, but they cannot determine the reason they've been locked away.
Outside of the bar, Adriana starts to grow suspicious of Tiros and his yellow crystal. She gathers up the Phoenix
Fighters who aren't in the bar and begins to ask Tiros a series of questions. He answers evasively, telling them that
the plague is a genetic degeneration. Meanwhile, in the bar, Sito casually mentions that the healers are known as the
KGP. Tranns immediately recognizes the name. It stands for the Knights of Genetic Purity, a radical group of zealots
who are morally opposed to interracial breeding. The group realize that Tiros intends to kill them for being half breeds
and Bui Doi and begin screaming, trying to warn the others.
Alarmed by their muffled cries, Adriana demands on knowing what the cure for this supposed disease is. Tiros tries
to double talk her with science, calling the cure BaCl, but Adriana immediately recognizes the term as an airborn poison,
a fear quickly confirmed by Casey. Just as Tiros is about to release the toxin into the bar, Adriana and the others
tackle him. He manages to release a small amount, but Telian breaks down the door to the bar, letting the others out.
Adriana, Amorette, and Tranns all threaten to kill Tiros, but he robs them of their victory. After calling the Bui Doi
abominations to the gods, he bites down on an aresnic capsule, killing himself. Casey and Shawn neutralize the poison
and everything is restored to normal. Aden visits Adriana's dreams one more time. He congratulates her on passing
her first test and reveals that he is actually an avatar of the PTB, sent to test Adriana's abilities, but he won't say why.
