Darien, Cassandra, and Setsuna head to follow a lead at a light tower where a worker named Evans who's signature was found on the DNA signature of the weapon they managed to get during the Triad situation. He's been missing for a long time, so either he was taken by VI or is part of them. At the light house they discover a picture frame of him and some woman, and an old ID number with callers on it - assuming one might have a lead to who took him.

At the mansion, Darien has his agents looking into the list of callers and going over the light house for any scraps of clues. There was a trace of blood found, Evans', indicating he might have been taken by force, which means they might have a good chance of his cooperation when they find him. Going over the list of callers, Darien makes the connection one caller was one of the dead scientists - killed by Warren's military unit before they left for space - and that the others might indeed be leads. Out of the 10 numbers, only 2 are scientists that are still about - all the others are missing or died where their remains couldn't be identify through unknown circumstances. One scientist that isn't missing is also the woman in the photo. They prepare to look into her the following day.
