Page 12 introduces us to Chasing the Dragon‘s female lead, Jyn. This her first day on the job at the Obsidian Castle, the seat of power in this world. Jyn’s “job” is sex slave.
Page 15 gives us a good look at our male lead, Andre, in his natural environment, an alchemical lab. The old man is his mentor, Master Alchemist Hermes Trismegistus, who serves the Duchess residing in the Obsidian Castle.
Page 17 is a minor spoiler showing Andre and Hermes visiting the Obsidian Castle, where they’re sure to cross paths with Jyn, and the Duchess, of course.
