The Jaekels have imprisoned Januae and the chiurgeon and put them to work constructing animal attributes to graft onto them. The two find themselves at odds as to how to proceed with their next set of orders given to them by their captors.
The Jaekels have made Januae their prisoner and have taken him to the inhospitable Aras Island where they dwell. Though he considers himself lucky to be alive, he’s not sure what plans these marauders have for him.
