Part in the Story[]


S2G1 Claude and The Dog

The Dog and Xi-Qi.

After Hei kills three Syndicate Contractors, she appears and makes her appearance known to Hei and Yin. However, Hei brushes off the appearance as a stray animal. After Hei saves Yin from the Syndicate, she arrives at the room where Yin was held and observes the aftermath of the battle before speaking about Yin's growing powers with Xi-Qi.[1]

She and Xi-Qi follow Hei and Yin to Hing Kong[3] before gaining access to EPR's jungle hideout where she listens as Xi-Qi discusses his intentions with Amagiri. She disapproves of Xi-Qi's desire to awaken Yin's power and is attacked by him.[4]

S2G4 The Dog Dies

Killed by Yin's awakening.

Back in her human body, she aids Hei in his attempt to free Yin, shooting down an attack helicopter with a missile and using her ability to possess a Contractor that is attacking Hei. She warns Hei about the dangers that lie ahead but he presses on regardless. When Hei is in trouble, she possesses his body and jumps out a window to allow him to escape. She is then killed by Izanami.[2]
