Part in the Story[]

Hei hires Hanako to transport himself, Mao, July and Suou Pavlichenko out of Hokkaido. When July spots a police checkpoint ahead, she notes that he is a Doll and that they will have to make arrangements to deal with the police inspections. She acquires a hearse, while July is disguised as a recently deceased child due to the ease with which Dolls can be identified. With Hei and Suou posing as July's grieving family, they successfully pass through security at the port. However, as they leave she double crosses them and steals July, intent on selling him to a Doll smuggling ring. However, she is found by Suou and is grievously injured by her before she can hand July over. She is then killed by Ilya Sokoloff.[1]
