Suddenly the massively built, 6'4", bald City Guard and hunter shouted, "Tialyn! Watch ou...!"
But that's all Tialyn heard as she tried to swerve around a lightning-bright rip that seemed to be forming in front of her. It seemed that all sound was sucked from the air around her. The white-haired Elviri screamed as she yanked back on Morning Star's reins. The horse screamed as well, as she rose on her hind legs, pawing the air at the approaching blackness surrounded by flashes of light. Tialyn saw and felt the surge pass through her as Morning Star skidded into the void. Tialyn could faintly hear the wailing of a cat near her.

When her horse's hooves crashed on the ground and sent shock waves through her, Tialyn grunted in pain. A furry projectile shot past her ear and thumped heavily against something, then rebounded and landed behind her saddle, hissing furiously.
Tialyn felt the static behind her lessen and disappear, leaving the night in eerie quiet. She glanced down and blinked in shock, her chest still heaving at the adrenaline blazing through her. How the hell did she get into the city? she thought looking around at Delmi.
Then she noticed the group of people practically in front of her. Tialyn blinked.
"Captain?" she asked sharply when she saw Joanna. Only something wasn't right.
The white-haired Elviri slid off her horse, its white coat nearly shining in the late fall night's moon. Morning Star was snorting and pawing the ground, trying to back up. Tialyn held the reins tightly with one hand. With the other she flung her cloak back to reveal her sword. Her movements revealed her Guardian Unit uniform, gray pants and tunic top, with the emblem, a full moon with two crossed swords, on her upper arm. Tialyn stared at her Guardian group...familiar yet there was something terribly wrong. She saw Sephira, Vincent, the Professor, Eru, Graayth, and Gaelan.
But the others...others who seemed part of the group were wrong. They didn't belong! Where was Kat, Breanna, and Reece. OH MY GODDESS! Reece, thought Tialyn in a panic as she stared at Jo. She and Reece were being chased by the demon were-panthers...and Reece was still out there!!
Tialyn put a hand on her sword. She stared at Jo with her gray eyes glowing as the moonlight reflected off them. "What the hell is going on?" she demanded, but her voice betrayed her fear, too.
