Shiarra Waynest is not happy. First, she learns that the Sunstriker werewolf ring is behind the murder of a reporter. Then, there’s a chance she may be infected with the lycanthropic virus, and she’s worried that the belt and its entity that gives her enhanced skills and senses is turning her into something she doesn’t want to be.
She turns to the White Hats for help hunting down the Sunstriker werewolf pack. Her first kill makes her more influenced by the belt and open to a better understanding of who inhabits it and his motivations. Unfortunately, it becomes apparent that the entity is slowly influencing her thoughts and actions more and more, causing her to blame the vampire Alec Royce for her troubles and focus her anger on him.
