Seeking to kidnap Psylocke, Kuragari dispatched his Undercloaks to bring her to his realm, but she and Archangel prove too much for the Undercloaks, and they fail in their mission. During the battle, the Undercloaks drop a ring which Kuragari intended for Psylocke. Though she knows the ring to be a symbol of evil, she places it on her finger, confident that the ring might lead her to the source of her recent personality transformation.
Meanwhile, Gomurr arrives seeking to enlist the aid of Psylocke and Archangel against invasion by Kuragari. He is aghast to see that Psylocke wears the ring. Moments later, Kuragari arrives, defeats Gomurr and Warren, wounding him, and then kidnaps Betsy.
