At the Huntington Library, Art Gallery and Botanical Gardens Epiphany was trolling through one of the one of the rare book collections when a rat scampered up to her feet and began screeching. She tilted her head, listening carefully to the rat. A frown crossed her face as she thought to herself,
''So. We have guests.
'' The rat began to scurry away and she turned to follow it, her form shimmered and slowly faded from view.

Epiphany spent several minutes observing the uninvited guests to her domain as they wandered the grounds of the Huntington. Already familiar with him, she focused her attention on the young girl. She appeared weak and frail to her, but the sense of a vibrant intellect was intriguing. Standing behind Hi Ki’s left shoulder she allowed herself to rematerialize and calmly asked,
''Who is this?
Startled, she shrieked and jumped closer to Wolfwood. Taking a moment to compose herself she said,
''My name is Hi Ki Cho and I was sent her to bring you to Alex.
''Tonight is not a good time for me as I am busy. Tomorrow night would be better.
''Well, I have just met her, but she seems to be the type that is better to humor than to make angry. Especially, considering she has now claimed this Barony.
Wolfwood quickly interjected,
''You know her mind wanders and she will most likely leave you be for long periods of time if you simply see her when she requests._
She narrowed her eyes in frustration at the two before her,
''Very well, you do have a valid point. I will follow you there.
