This is a 91-page novella about two superheroes, Bodach and his sidekick, Sith. The story explores the father-daughter relationship between the two, and challenges the black and white morality that is stereotypical of this genre. It begins with Bodach and Sith helping to solve the latest in a series of murders. While in pursuit of their primary suspect, they are forced to separate, which results in Sith being abducted. She awakens and recognizes her captor, and resolves to try and use the situation to her advantage. As she avoids his attempts to attack her, she begins pressing him for information about the case. She is successful, to an extent, until her ankle is broken and she is cornered. Meanwhile, Bodach breaks into the police station to question one of the criminals him and Sith had arrested earlier that evening. His interrogation methods don’t sit well with the police, as he is beating information out of the incarcerated men, but they are successful, and he discovers where Sith has been taken. He races to the location he was given, and arrives in time to save Sith. In the midst of his rescue attempt, he and Sith are confronted with the perpetrator of all the murders, a man known as the Raven, who escapes when Bodach tries to apprehend him.
