Summary
In the future, a mercenary named Toorop accepts a contract from Gorsky, a Russian mobster, who instructs him to bring a young woman only known as Aurora to New York. Gorsky gives Toorop a variety of weapons as well as a UN passport that has to be injected under the skin of the neck. Toorop, along with the girl and her guardian Sister Rebeka, leave the Noelite Convent where they lived. The three flee from an unknown group of mercenaries. The stress of humanity's situation causes Aurora to act out in strange ways that neither Toorop, nor Rebeka can explain
