"The City of Toads"
Kro tries to rekindle his past dalliance with Thena by whisking her off to Deviants' hidden city. His hopes are dashed when she is revulsed by the scenes of "Reject" Deviants being herded together for mass extermination because of their malformed appearance caused by their unstable atoms.
One such Reject, a fierce warrior has been cast out by Deviant society for the sheer sin of being born beautiful in a world of Deviant ugliness. His fate is to face the most fearsome Mutate, Karkas in the arena.
Meanwhile at Sam Holden's apartment, Sersi decides that while there's music, and moonlight, and molecules in the air... to dance the night away.
First appearance of Ransak (Reject) and Karkas.
