  • Anti-Hero:
  • Arch-Enemy:
    • Wu became this when she became park director, a position he coveted.
    • The Indominus is this during the Fall of Jurassic World.
  • Ascended Fangirl: A twisted version of this trope is used in Dearing's case as she is a Tolkien's Legendarium fan who ends up realizing that she became somekind of a mix between Turin Turambar and Ar-Pharazon, two characters who triggered the fall of their kingdoms: Numenor for Ar-Pharazon, and Nargothrond for Turin (who acted not as its king but as a general and a top-advisor. While the destruction of the park by Mount Sibo's eruption can be reminiscent of that of Numenor, the Indominus is similar in some ways to Glaurung, Turin's nemesis.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking:
  • Bad Boss:
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted. She gets disfigured by the Indominus and loses a forearm to her jaws.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Grady.

  • Deadpan Snarker:
  • Despair Event Horizon:

  • Drowning My Sorrows: Several times when she is not in the wilderness, due to the stress caused by the whole island falling apart and her own future becoming very uncertain.
  • Fan Disservice: When she strike the Indominus from below on the reef barrier, the narration specify that the only clothes she is wearing is her pair of jodhpurs, which had been reduced to a ragged pair of shorts. But not only she has covered her entire body with volcanic mud to hide her scent, her eyes are bloodshot but the Indominus clawed her face and upper torso moments earlier. Later, as she is dragged underwater along the Indominus by the mosasaur, the mud and the blood on her are washed off but she loses her right forearm in the process. When Grady get her out of the lagoon and help her walk towards the Discovery Center while waiting for a rescue helicopter to come, she might be nearly naked but she had been mauled and is dying.
  • Fiery Red Head: She has red-hairs and is Hot-Blooded.
  • Genre Savvy: Dearing's knowledge of Norse Mythology and The Children of Húrin, which is established in the exchange she had earlier with the Tun-Si cleaning lady, very probably helped her defeat the Indominus at the end. How? She hide in a pit and wait for the Indominus to pass over her so she can strike her from below. In their respective stories, Sigurd/Siegfried and Turin Turambar use the very same tactic to slay their draconic enemy, i.e Fafnir for Sigurd/Siegfried and Glaurung for Turin.
  • Godzilla Threshold:
  • Has a Type: According to Cruthers, Krill and Young, her type would be guys like Aragorn, Conan, John Carter and Geralt of Rivia.
  • Honor Before Reason:

  • Nice to the Waiter: In The Fallen Kingdom, she offers some rum to an old cleaning lady.
  • Pop-Cultured Badass: She is a fan of Tolkien's Legendarium, Mass Effect, and seems to be familiar with Allan Quatermain and Franchise/Alien. As she calls J.J Abrams and Rian Johnson clowns at one point, one could count her among the Star Wars fans disappointed by the sequel trilogy.
  • Precision F-Strike:
  • Pride Before a Fall:
  • Sanity Splippage: The fall of Jurassic World gradually erodes her sanity, up to a point where she threatens her subordinates and almost kill Ivan Preston in an outburst of anger.
  • Sex for Solace: Has some with Grady early in The Fallen Kingdom.
  • Skewed Priorities: During a scene where she and Leon have to drive fast out of an area being striked by volcanic bombs, she takes the time to scold Leon when he whines too much and express her dislike of the Star Wars sequel trilogy and its directors and producers.
    Leon: "Faster! I don't want to die as a virgin and without seeing the end of the Star Wars sequel trilogy!"
    Dearing: "Shut up! You won't miss anything given the poor quality of the first two parts! J.J Abrams and Rian Johnson are clowns you hear me?! Clowns! And don't tell me about Kath...!"

The Slayers

    In General 
The Slayers are InGen's own black-ops team, originally created during the Saurian Wars to defend the construction sites and crews against the attacks from feral dinosaurs.
  • Arch-Enemy: Were this to the feral carnivores of Nublar during Jurassic World’s construction. Become this to the grey guards.
  • Black Knight: While not technically knights, the Slayers’ appearance evoke this.
  • Blood Knight: They are violent in battle.
  • The Brute : In Gen use them for their black-ops operations.
  • Canon Foreigner:
  • Cool Mask: The Slayers' faces are often concealed behind frightening mask-like visors whose lower part have a series of slits designed to evoke a row of sharp teeth.
  • Court-Martialed : Sherman, Decker, Olsen and Faraci were put on trial and excluded from the United States Armed Forces for dishonorable discharges, rape in the case of Faraci, murder for Olsen and Decker, and covering a murder for Sherman.
  • Dark Is Evil: Zigzagged. While all the Slayers wear a black attire, their degree of evilness varies from member to member with punch-clock villains and affable individuals like Sherman and Cortes to sociopathic soldiers and total monsters like Faraci.
  • Doom Troops:
  • The Dragon Slayer : Style themselves as this. Justified as they are seasoned dinosaur hunters.
  • Equal-Opportunity Evil: Their members comes from various ethnic backgrounds and include two women.
  • Fallen Hero: Originally created as a part of In Gen Security response to the threat posed by Nublar’s feral carnivores on the construction crews, they became the corporation’s top enforcers and black-ops team. While some like Faraci were already despicable individuals when they were recruited, Lambert Ross hints that others became this trope over the course of the Saurian Wars.
  • Foil : To the Grey Guards. Both are multinational teams with medieval-like aesthetics that were created to deal with dinosaurs. But while the first considers the latter as Worthy Opponents and only kills them when they have no choice, the Slayers are Blood Knight who shows gratuitious cruelty.
  • Godzilla Threshold: Whenever they are nearby, you know that InGen is taking things really seriously.
  • Knight of Cerebus : Once they appear, the story takes an even darker turn with a Humans Are the Real Monsters subtext.
  • Multinational Team : While most of the Slayers are Americans, there are some Costaricans and even a Congolese among their ranks.
  • Pet Rat : Does In Gen’s dirty work.
  • Private Military Contractors: Most of its members are former soldiers.
  • Punch-Clock Villain:
  • Putting on the Reich: Downplayed example since they don’t follow a Nazi-like ideology and actually have ethnic diversity in their ranks but their black attire and some of their actions during the Saurian Wars evoke the Waffen SS. The episode when they slaughtered a part of a proceratosaur clan inside the old visitor centre and torched the building in retaliation of an attack was heavily inspired by the massacre of Oradour Sur Glane.

    Gregor Sherman 
The leader of the Slayers.
    Olivia Decker 
Sherman's right-hand woman.
    Damian Parker 
The youngest of the Slayers. His father was also a Slayer.

  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Is poisoned with Blue-ringed Octopus' venom.
  • Generation Xerox: He wants to follow his father's footsteps.

  • New Meat: He is a recent addition to the team.
  • Parental Substitute: Sherman is a father-figure to him.
  • You Killed My Father: It's implied that his father was killed by proceratosaurs. It help explains his desire to hunt some of them.
    Paco Cortès 
A slayer part of the Tun-Si tribe, the natives of Isla Nublar. He was born on the island
    Esmeralda Pizarro 
Another Tun-Si part of the Slayers and an old friend of Cortès. Unlike him, she was born on the mainland.
    Reynald Faraci 
  • Drop the Hammer: His weapon of choice is a mace.
  • Fat Bastard:
  • Hate Sink: Probably the most despicable character of the entire story as he has no redeemable qualities and is a sociopathic soldier.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: He ends up being right about Lynton having barely any consideration for the Slayers and seeing them only as tools.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Had he shut up and not said Leng aloud, Darbinian and Yu would have figured out way less easily thanks to the Mitchells brothers' account that the Slayers were behind the ambush suffered by Brunet's platoon.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain:
  • Serial Rapist: Has been convicted for rape in the past.
  • Sociopathic Soldier:
  • Would Hit a Girl: He murders Patience Bellamy and has rapist tendencies.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork : Due to his misogyny and racism, Leng, Decker, Cortes and Pizarro have troubles working with him, especially Decker due to her backstory.
    Kevin Leng 
    Nolan Olsen 
The tallest of the Slayers.
  • Bald of Evil:
  • Big Axe: His main weapon is a great axe.
  • The Brute: His extremely tall, very strong and is a formidable fighter.
  • Facial Horror: Some predator has bitten off much of his lips during the Saurian Wars, leaving his teeth and gums uncovered in some sort of a permanent grotesque grin. Most of the time, he hide this disfigurement behind a balaclava.
  • Giant Mook: Is over 2 meters tall.
  • Hypothetical Casting: Guillaume Delaunay.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Impales a [spoiler:a guard]] on a skeleton stegosaur’s thagomizer. He suffers later from this trope.
  • The Quiet One: Doesn’t talk a lot.
  • Rasputinian Death: First, Selma Forrester stabs him multiple times in the belly. Seconds later, her husband Niall cuts his tendons with an axe and Selma thrust a spear in Olsen's mouth. The giant is finally killed when Niall dig his axe in his skull.
  • Vocal Dissonance: His massive, almost monstrous appearance belies a surprisingly calm voice.
    Léopold Butu 
Before he joined the Slayers, Léopold Butu was a Congolese mercenary who worked with US agents in Central Africa.
    Ford 
    McNamara 
    Arana 
A Costa Rican slayer.

The Grey Guard

    In General 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/grey_guard_official_sigil_8.png
Coat of arms of the Grey Guard

The Grey Guard is a UN-backed paramilitary organisation found in the Five Deaths Archipelago and on Isla Nublar. It is dedicated to the protection of the aforementioned archipelago, populated by feral de-extinct reptiles escaped from InGen's Site B on Isla Sorna. It also supports the staff of Jurassic World in ensuring the safety of the park and its employees and visitors. As the guards are used to deal with dinosaurs and other dangerous de-extinct species, they are useful in capturing escaped and/or rampaging animals. The current marshal is Helmut Störmer.

The organisation's motto is Cave Dracones, Beware the Dragons in Latin, and its names comes from the greenish grey colour of its uniforms.

  • Animal Motif: Dragons. Its sigil consist of a roaring dragon and a crescent of five stars while recruits of the guard are sometimes referred as dragonets. Justified as the Dragon is a metaphor of the Five Deaths archipelago’s prehistoric wildlife. The guards themselves show aspects from both eastern and western dragons. They have the benevolent guardians role of the eastern dragons but just like the western dragons, they can be wrathful and violent towards whatever or whoever became their enemies.
  • Badass Army: Those men and women are trained to confront highly dangerous animals if the situation requires.
  • Badass Long Coat: They wears dark green—grey cloaks on some occasions. The rangers wear some whenever they are on missions.
  • Battle Cry: Cave Dracones!.
  • Cultural Chop Suey: In addition to being an international military organization, the Grey Guard shows multiple cultural influences in its culture and gear.
    • As the founder of the organization was a Welsh aristocrat, their fort on Isla Sorna bears a Welsh name and the symbolic animal of the organization is a dragon.
    • They have units called hoplites and retiarii.
    • Their helmets features a spectacle guard and cheek pieces, not unlike some types of Viking helmets.
    • Their sabres are described having an Eastern Asian design.
    • Their protective gear feature small scale-like structures at their surface. The inspirations behind this are the Roman Lorica squamata, Scythian scale armours, and some armours from Feodal Japan and Ancient China.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Even though they are not as frightening-looking as In Gen’s Slayers, the grey guards might seem intimidating and scary in the eyes of some, with their medieval-looking helmets, the balaclavas that sometimes hides the lower part of their faces, or their weapons. The first version of the Grey Guard’s banner featured a crescent of five skulls and a roaring dragon upon a black field and was considered too sinister by the UN authorities to appear on the organisation’s assets. On one occasion during the story, some of the guards wear also some scary-looking tribal-like warpaints. The grey guards themselves are often willing to help and rescue defenceless civilians and partners and allies like some Jurassic World employees (the keepers and the J-SEC in particular) but never betray them or use them as unwilling guinea-pigs because they are not the kind of people you want to make into enemies and In Gen’s Security learn it the hard way.
  • In the Hood : To protect themselves from certain elements like rain, the guards put hoods over their heads and hoods are part of the guard’s rangers uniforms.
  • Legion of Lost Souls: One of the main inspirations behind the Grey Guard is the French Foreign Legion.
  • Mildly Military: Although it is fairly disciplined, it doesn’t run quite the same as most modern armies. And the guard is not strictly military as there are members from police forces among its troops.
  • Multinational Team: The guards can be recruited from armies and police forces of every country part of the United Nations. The guards that appears in the story hails from France, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Germany, Russia, Italy, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Colombia, Jamaica, Chile, Australia, India, China, Korea, Japan, Egypt, Kenya and South Africa.
  • Poisoned Weapons: When they are tasked to kill dangerous animals, the guards dip their arrows and their harpoons in a neurotoxin derived from Blue-ringed Octopus.
  • Private Military Contractors: The Grey Guard work for the Costa Rica government and the United Nations. It also has former mercenaries in its ranks.
  • SamuraiVikingHopliteMusketeer: They evoke this trope when in armour. See Cultural Chop Suey and Schizo Tech entries.
  • Schizo Tech: While the Grey Guard has modern vehicles and firearms among its assets, its troops also have sabres, spears, pikes, axes, bows, blowpipes and shields, and Nublar’s garrison has also horses. In some occasions during the fall of Jurassic World, the grey guards adopt ancient or medieval formations and tactics like phalanx, shield walls or cavalry charge. Overall, in terms of aesthetic, look and organization, the Grey Guard is closer to a Medieval armed force than to a modern one.
  • Shout-Out:
    • To A Song of Ice and Fire: By being a politically-neutral military-esque order being based in a dangerous uncivilized area geographically isolated from civilization, the Grey Guard is similar to the Night’s Watch, a comparision which is even made by one of the characters. The difference is that the Grey Guard’s seek to prevent people from the civilized world to coming into the wilderness of the Five Deaths and though it also have exiles in its ranks, it’s not depicted as a gulag where undesirable individuals like criminals are sent.
    • To Tolkien's Legendarium: With their hoods, balaclavas, dark-green grey uniforms, and bows, the Grey Guard’s rangers looks similarily to the Dunedain rangers (or even the Ithilien rangers as seen in the films’ trilogy). In addition to that, the Grey Guard’s main purpose is to protect from trespassers the lost world that the Five Deaths became, just like the Dunedains guards the borders of the Shire.
  • Sword and Gun: Firearms and melee weapons such as sabres, knives and axes are part of the guards' weaponry.
  • The Exile: Some members of the Guard are exiles.

Isla Nublar garrison

Officers

    Katashi Hamada 
The Japanese captain of the garrison.
  • Adaptational Job Change: Hamada was the commander of the ACU (Asset Containment Unit) in Colin Trevorrow's film. In this reimagining, he is a captain in the Grey Guard. Sure, the two jobs might be similar but the employers are not the same.
  • Adaptational Nationality: In the novelization of the 2015 film, it's stated that Hamada was a SWAT officer before he joined the ACU at Jurassic World. Given this, one can assume that the character was an American of Japanese descent. In this reimagining, Hamada is fully Japanese.

  • Ascended Extra: He was a Mauve Shirt in the film and has more importance in this fic.

  • The Captain: As the captain of Nublar's garrison, he is the top grey guard officer on the island.

  • Good Is Not Nice:
  • Ignored Expert: Dearing ignored his requests to build large-capacity bunkers and his warnings about the Indominus.
  • Mercy Kill: Forces Dearing to grant him one.
  • OOC Is Serious Business:
  • The Other Darrin: The physical appearence of this version of Hamada was based on Hiroyuki Sanada rather than Brian Tee, who portrayed this character in the 2015 film.

Two individuals were cloned but one of them was killed by the other, which grew to become a terryfing monster like nothing seen before. She triggers the fall of Jurassic World.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: She is less ugly than her film counterpart and her look is visually attractive to the eyes of several of the characters, with Grady even thinking that she is kinda beautiful in her own way.

  • Horns of Villainy: She inherited horns from Kaprosuchus and the Texas Horned Lizard.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: Firmly believe in this trope. Given some of the events that happens during the fall of Jurassic World, one might think she is right to believe this.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: She impales on branches Sandros and two of his companions.
  • Kill Them All: Her plan for the humans on Isla Nublar.
  • Kneel Before Zod:
  • Light Is Not Good: Her main colour is white.
  • Living Weapon: The protagonists ends up discovering that she was intended as a bioweapon.
  • Monster Delay: She is fully revealed only near the end of the first book.
  • Monster Is a Mommy: Like one of the veterinary assistants suspected, she is actually pregnant in the first book. She has a miscarriage in the first third of "The Fallen Kingdom" though, probably because of the stress she cumulated during the day and the venom that coated the harpoon thrusted in her shoulder.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: With her stealthy approaches and camouflage abilities, she embodies this trope.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Although she can't breath fire and has no magical abilities whatsoever, she's the closest thing to a dragon in the setting and in "The Fallen Kingdom", she show a behaviour very similar to those of some dragons from Tolkien's Legendarium like Smaug and Glaurung and her intellect rivals with theirs.
  • Overly Long Tongue: She has one, due to the woodpecker DNA.
  • Rage Against the Heavens: Her story is this from her perspective. She once saw humans as gods-like beings but soon discovered that they were nothing but false-gods.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent:
  • Sadist:
  • Stealthy Colossus: Despite being the largest land predator that had ever walked the earth, the Indominus shows great stealth.
  • Taking You with Me: Inadvertently do this to Dearing. When the mosasaur grabs and crushes her hips, the Indominus closes her jaws on Dearing's arm and both are dragged underwater.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: She has eyelash-like scales above her eyes that gives her a feminine look. It's a subverted example though as those scales are an inheritance of the Eyelash Viper (Bothriechis schlegelli) and in this species, males also have the eyelash-like scales.
  • The Strategist: Is fully capable of establishing strategies and using tactics to defeat her enemies.
  • Tragic Villain:
  • Uncanny Valley: Her strange facial features have this effect on whoever look at her face. It's implied that it's because she has human DNA.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Is only indirectly responsible for the stampede in the reserve and the pterosaurs’ attack on Burroughs. Her real purpose as well as her involvement in the test that the Slayers conducts on the grey guards and some subsequent events ends up triggering a war between Nublar's grey guards and InGen Security.

In General

    Ankylosaurus 
A large armoured dinosaur with a clubbed tail.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: The thick club on their tail.
  • Demoted to Extra: In the 2015 film, they were involved in one of the action scenes with the Indominus. In this fic, they only have a couple of short appearances.
  • Herbivores Are Friendly: Averted. One is depicted using its clubbed tail to dissuade other herbivores from coming to the waterhole where it is drinking.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: Ankylosaurus is probably the most iconic member of its family.
    Anzu 
A large oviraptorid dinosaur.
  • Feathered Fiend: Though they are omnivorous and not notable predators, Anzu is still a relatively large animal that can mortally wound an adult human with a single kick, like the Cassowary. The fiend part is however a bit downplayed as the male that Grady and Dearing encounter just seeks to protects his mate and content himself with leading her away once the two humans back down.
  • One-Scene Wonder: They only appears during one scene.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Compared to other oviraptorid species like Oviraptor or even Gigantoraptor, Anzu had little to no appearence in fictional works.
    Apatosaurus 
A diplodocid sauropod from the Late Jurassic.
  • Adaptational Badass: One of the Indominus' POV reveals that at least one Apatosaurus tended to not act like a victim but more like a bully, attacking her without any warning. In the 2015 film, apatosaurs were Gentle Giant and seemed to be placid enough for the Indominus to slaughter half a dozen of them in a relatively short span of time. Here, she kills only one of them.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: One subadult male was agressive enough to dare to attack the Indominus.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death:

  • Stock Dinosaurs: Likely the second most well known crested hadrosaur after Parasaurolophus.
    Dimorphodon 
A small pterosaur from the Early Jurassic.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In the 2015 film, the dimorphodons attacked the terrified visitors in Main Street along with the pteranodons. In this fic, they are animals much closer to their real-life counterparts and docile enough to be handled by park keepers during public presentations.
  • Demoted to Extra: Appears only during the Zoo visit and the Harpactognathus takes up the role they had in the film.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: In educational material, Dimorphodon is a borderline Stock Pterosaur, but in film media it's pretty rare.

  • Fragile Speedster: One of the fastest dinosaurs in the park, but beyond that have no real defenses against large predators. Gallimimus can actually be quite big however (more than 6 meters in length and almost 3 meters in height) and one of them is able to knock down a horse and its rider that were on its way.
  • Herbivores Are Friendly: Inverted. They are omnivorous but coexist peacefully with the other herbivores of the Reserve. However, one "Gallimimus" knock a mounted guard down during the stampede.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: They became stock because of the Jurassic Park franchise.
    Geosternbergia

A sheep-sized ankylosaurian from Australia.
  • Herbivores Are Friendly: They are docile enough to be housed in the Children's Zoo but during their visit, Zach see two parents yelling after a keeper because their kid was supposedly hurt by one of the Kunbarrasaurus so it's a downplayed example.
  • Fun Size: The adults are only 3 meters long and 1.7 meters high.
  • Seldom-Seen Species:
    Mamenchisaurus 
A gigantic sauropod with a very long neck.
  • Advancing Wall of Doom: One serve as this and the Grey Guard try to stop it before it reach the Metriacanthosaurus paddock.

  • The Big Guy: The biggest species featured in the story and one of the largest sauropods that had ever existed.
  • Gentle Giant: They are quite pacific and are more inclined to flee than to fight.
  • Herbivores Are Friendly: Subverted. They don't try to deliberately harm any of the human characters but due to their size, they prove to be very dangerous and nearly unstoppable if they panic. During the stampede caused by the escaped Metriacanthosaurus pack, one of the Mamenchisaurus trample a grey guard and his mount.
  • Killed Offscreen: As they were too big to be transported on the mainland during the operation Fallen Kingdom, In Gen decided to kill them and incinerate their bodies to prevent rival companies from capturing them or getting genetic material.
  • Long Neck:Mamenchisaurus had 19 vertebrae on its neck, moreso than many other dinosaurs.

  • The Family That Slays Together: The pack involved in the incident is made of one adult male, two adult females, and four subadults which are the offspring of the male and one of the female.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Two of the subadults attack Bucephalus, much to the adult female dismay.
  • Mercy Kill: Brunet thrust his saber in Philippe's heart to stop the sufferings induced by the poisoned arrow he got.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Its name and DNA was seen in the first film as one of the samples Nedry stole (misspelled Metriacantasaurus).
    • While the females have the same color schemes as the individual from the official Jurassic World park website, drawn by paleoartist Julius Csotonyi, the males' are nearly identical to the coastal skin from Jurassic World: Evolution.
  • Off with His Head!: One of their habits is to behead small preys. It’s how they kill Duncan Glenmore.

  • Stock Dinosaurs: Though not a dinosaur, Mosasaurus is a fairly well-known animal.
    Neoraptor 
The first dromaeosaurid species bred by In Gen and one of their most dreaded creations as they are fast, cunning and very deadly predators. Once referred as "Velociraptors", they actually are a genetic hybrid of Achillobator giganticus and Deinonychus antirrhopus. Before the Achillobator pack, the IBRIS program involved several packs of this species but in 2013, an incident occured where one of the individuals attacked Owen Grady. Said individual, a female named Andromeda, was shot and the others neoraptors were transferred to the quarantine paddocks. Three subspecies are known: Neoraptor athertonii tigris, whose males are striped like tigers while the females are brown; Neoraptor athertonii iroquoii, the most bird-like of the three subspecies as the males sports a sagittal crest of feathers; and an hybrid subspecies of the first two.

  • It Can Think:
  • Mook:The Indominus recruits the individuals from the quarantine paddocks and incorporate them in her pack along with the proceratosaurs.
  • Raptor Attack: As the raptors that appeared in the original trilogy belong to this species, the neoraptors follows this trope as well.
  • Revenge Before Reason: Just like The Big One in the first Jurassic Park, some of the neoraptors becomes enraged when fellow pack members are harmed or killed. One of them, Cassandra, track Grady up to the other end of Burroughs to avenge her sister's death. She ends up killed by Blue just as she was about to pounce on him.
