The Explorer came out mad. No one paid him mad ramblings any attention. they think Alexander scrambled his mind.[5] After Naasir and Andromeda return from waking Alexander, they work together to prepare for Lijuan's attack.

Lijuan arrives with her troops—battle begins. Alexander rises, he and Lijuan engage—she hits him with Black Rain—skin, hair, wings blacken—Alex falls.[3] Raphael hits Lijuan with Wilfre, she escapes with her troops. Raph goes to help Alex. Raph had Naasir keep the people away—had them to prepare a place suitable to receive Alexander.[8] They'd have to greet Alexander under the open sky.
