Dr. Sinian sighed in relief as she watched the remains of the Red Lynx’'s plane burn. Thank goodness she had obtained permission to retrieve and destroy the wreckage before it was too late.

The retrieval had only confirmed her fears. Lynx’ plane, wings clipped by the SWAT Kats’ missiles, was otherwise intact. Just as it had been when it was dredged from the ocean floor the first time.

It was proof that Lynx’ spirit wasn’t at rest. Not even after his defeat at the hands of a second Manx. He had been weakened, not destroyed. But, if her findings were correct, the plane was the focus of his power. With it gone, Lynx too would fade into the ether.

Unless he had managed to imbue something else with the hatred that fueled his wandering spirit.

How she wished the Enforcers had agreed to destroy the remnants of the Blue Manx.
