Guyferd[edit | edit source]

"The Birth of Guyferd!"[edit | edit source]

After a horrible incident in the laboratory, Crown's current head of research on the Fallah parasite, Takeo Shiroishi, quit and was replaced by Shion, who was briefly introduced to him when they went to take him back to headquarters as a prisoner. Later in a board meeting, a man named Minoh presented his work in his Guyborg program, only for Shion to present security footage showing one Fallah-mutated human easily overpowering three Guyborgs, putting Fallah on the map for Crown's attempts to create the ultimate soldier. Later, after learning that Masato Kazama's little brother Go had returned to Japan, she asked Mr. Bikross for permission to use him as a test subject in her program, only for him to be given to Minoh instead. She was given a man named Michiyuki Taki, whom she exposed to the Fallah parasite despite his protests, and created the Mutian Jerks, who soon escaped custody. She ran to the board room to inform Bikross, and she planned to lock down K block and send in some Guyborgs to deal with the situation. Minoh approved, and Shion pitched the operation as a competition between her Mutians and his Guyborgs.

"In Peril! Go"[edit | edit source]

On walking into the secret Crown elevator in the Frontier Science Technology Enterprise building, she inquired about the readiness of Doggross with another scientist before going to observe a Mutian surgery being performed on subject M17. Later during a board meeting it was decided by Bikross that Mutians would be Crown's elite task force, while Guyborgs would support them as footsoldiers. Minoh took offense to this, prompting Shion to try and defend her position. Before she was able, M17 escaped containment and she ran to take care of the problem. She summoned Doggross to deal with the weaker mutant, but his obedience medication began to wear off, causing her to send him to containment. In the hallway, Bikross ordered her to work with Minoh to create cybernetic brain modifications to all future Mutians. Doggross was sent out again without such modification to wait in a trap for Go Kazama. Go arrived according to plan, but unfortunately Doggross was still unmodified and began to falter when his medication wore off. Shion was watching the operation through a Crown Command Satellite, and called for the two Guyborgs lying in wait to collect and return him to Crown. There she was chastised for her recklessness in sending the Mutian out again, but she revealed that she had developed a new means of control. Doggross was then defeated by a mutant Go Kazama, which lead to Shion discovering in Shiroishi's research notes, a theoretical state known as "Guyferd" wherein the human host and Fallah are at a perfect symbiosis, and it was theorized that Go has entered that state.
