"Once she was a super-soldier for an alien race, just like the Griffin.
Then, like the Griffin, she deserted and fled to her homeworld.
In retaliation, the aliens destroyed the planet, killing everyone on it.
Now Mary lives on Earth, and she's watching it happen all over again . . .
. . . The last Assirion.
She won't lose another home. Even if it kills her."
