The cameraman after exiting the first door stepped across taking the blue torch from the wall holding it, as he pulled the door open. The cameraman stepped through at the outskirts of a town, there is another woman in a black robe, carrying the same blue torch as the cameraman was. He took one step forward as the woman did the same. The cameraman began his trek down the hill through the start of the city as the larger woman continued to follow him, as he approached the jingle of the coins could be heard, the cameraman then is stopped at the entrance of the city, by another woman in black, when Kassandra comes skipping along, pushing her way through the woman holding back the cameraman, whom reaches into his pocket showing her the coins that he had been given by Legion. Kassandra then nods, and the woman guarding the city moves out of the way allowing him access. Kass then grabbed him by the hand leading him into her city, as it remained dark, the woman then went back into standby mode. Kassandra laughed as she then let him go skipping next to him, around in a circle.
“The Blue Eyed Wolf” Kassandra: See Danae and Legion stand guard upon the city, knowing that when a visitor comes through then they are here for two purposes… they want to play, or they have come here because they have nowhere else to go. Truthfully, it is a lonely vocation, keeping those who oppose the Hive’s mind here. But I am it’s one true guardian…
She smiled softly, as she stopped skipping, then she started walking backwards taking the torch from the cameraman. She giggled softly as she held it to some glass. The cameraman watched as the woman seemed more interested in him, as she just stared at him.
“The Blue Eyed Wolf” Kassandra: But you come bearing the news of the outside, and of WWH. I am to assume, as there is not much for me on the outside. See last week I took on Lilith Evans and won. The queen seemed please with my victory afterwards, that now I move on to another singles match, but this time, against the current international champion, Stephanie Matsuda. Given chances, that what WWH seems to be about currently, and I want to show my best side, because in the end there might be a title match for me down in the future.
She giggled as she vanished from the spot she was in. the cameraman looked at the window, as it was glowing bright orange from where the flame was, he just stared as the larger woman in the black robe appeared behind him pushing him forward, letting the torch fall from her hand. The cameraman dove for it, as he picked it up, another blue hue appeared above him this time Kassandra was standing there, looking down upon him.
“The Blue Eyed Wolf” Kassandra: You know I did have a chance to spectate a bit on her match, before the Queen summoned Danae and me. Congratulations, Stephanie, you won your match. So going into the new show, that means for the time being that you and I are the same… the undefeated walking to our demise, eventually finding that one will be the better woman, and they will continue to be undefeated. While the other goes back to their drawing board, to figure out their plans, figure out where they managed to go wrong and then determine that their plans were flawed…
Kassandra moved down the street, the cameraman managed to pull himself up looking around seeing the control spire at the end of the path, but they were no where close to that. They passed several stores, which Kassandra picked up a couple rocks throwing them through the window, as she took the torch she was carrying it throwing it in. the storefront lit up quickly, as the cameraman looked on in his own horror. The spirits there doing the best they can to escape the blaze within the store.
“The Blue Eyed Wolf” Kassandra: That store was about to be replaced anyway, I just helped it along within my own grasp. Here’s the thing, Matsuda has had some worthy competitors, but she has never come across me. You are thinking, but Kassandra you are normally a tag team wrestler, with Danae. That is correct, but I still want to show myself that I am a good singles competitor.
Kassandra laughed quite loudly as she vanished the cameraman continued to watch the store burn, the cameraman then moved on trying to ignore what was going on around him, the fire roared behind him. Kassandra then reappeared in front of him, watching behind her as her eyes were almost reflecting the fire as it slowly began to die, the building no longer standing where it was, leaving an empty lot. Kassandra moved past him, going over to the open lot kneeling down looking back, as the cameraman turned around to join her.
“The Blue Eyed Wolf” Kassandra: What was once destroyed, can be renewed if we are willing to sacrifice for it. Stephanie, you have had the worthy competitors, including Vincent Lyons, and Havoc. Maybe its time to re-create… like I said what would you give to re-create the time here.
Kassandra cut her hand a bit as some of her blood, hit the ground. The small spot that it did hit, then soaked into the ground, as Kassandra stood up moving away from the spot. She took the torch from the cameraman throwing it on the spot. She then wrapped a cloth around her hand holding it up to herself for a moment, then looking over at the cameraman.
“The Blue Eyed Wolf” Kassandra: Here is what I truly know, this place becomes more interesting as the time goes on. You can learn so much, going through the different paths, and the lost caverns, and the holes that people have left behind. But sometimes those who had come before me, the one who owned this place before me… Wanted to show that the true beauty was in the city centre.
Kassandra disappears from beside the cameraman, the cameraman walked along, looking around seeing one of the alleys, as he is about to step off the path, a White wolf with red eyes emerges from the darkness, as the cameraman stumbles back falling into the street. The wolf continues to creep forward, as Danae appears in front of the cameraman. Kassandra picks him up off the ground nodding to the white wolf, then taking him by the arm.
“The Blue Eyed Wolf” Kassandra: One must never diverge off the path that is laid for them, sure they may find excitement, but sometimes they tend to find the darkness hidden with in. Stephanie you would be good to remember that, sometimes the path you cross, does not necessarily mean that will be the one truth. Saturday night, you will learn that one truth, that the rest of the hive already knows… the one truth that we have all learned.
Kassandra then moved away slinking into another dark alley where the cameraman tried to follow as a Silver Wolf, with the matching eyes appeared this time. Kassandra this time managed to pull him away wagging her finger at the Silver Wolf. It slinked back into the darkness, as Kassandra, then held her hand open.
“The Blue Eyed Wolf” Kassandra: Maybe it is time you take your leave, as the spire demands… Obviously sending out the wolves, means that. Matsuda we will see you on Saturday night, and you we will see next time. Maybe then you will finally have the code figured out, so that we can enter without having to do this…
The cameraman took the two coins out of his pocket, placing them in Kassandra’s hand then Kass closed her hand. She then motioned for him to go forward, Nothing had happened this time when he handed her the coins, but the two wolves began following them.
“The Blue Eyed Wolf” Kassandra: You are probably wondering why the door did not appear? I have not willed it so yet, you are not done here well yet, you are almost done.
Kassandra lifted her hand and the two coins disappeared in a blue flame, as did the control spire in the distance. Kassandra laughed as the door appeared in the distance, showing her hand.
“The Blue Eyed Wolf” Kassandra: That is your time to escape.
Kassandra then watched beautifully as the Spire burned to the ground, she slowly moved towards the spire’s ashes, blowing them away to find a new seed had formed, this time the cameraman was with her, as she looked back, then opened the wound once more to give it life. The cameraman then turned away heading back to the door, as he pulled it open, Kassandra watched then waved at him, as the door slams shut. The scene fades out, as the cameraman runs off.

Dystopia Promo #1
“Sins of the Past”
The scene opens up with Stephanie “Cloud” Matsuda standing by herself in a dark locker room. She was at her dojo in Brooklyn where she spent the evening training on her own. She’s leaning forward with a towel hanging over her head as she contemplated what she wanted to say. The Queen of Fighters took off her towel, sighed and looked at the camera.
“I have to say, I feel pretty amped about being back in WWH. I feel like I haven’t lost a step since War of Attrition, and it’s only up from here. Aaron Jones put me through my paces and I had to dig deep to get the win in, but I came out victorious at Silence. Now, the Queen of Fighters continue on her journey forward, where I seize the two remaining championships on the Dystopia roster: the Affliction Championship and the WWH World Championship. From day one, that’s been my objective - to be one of the few people that can claim they’ve won every single title on the brand. I’m proud to wear the International Championship on my shoulder, and now I face my second Inmate in this new regime, Kassandra. I’d be lying if I said I knew a lot about her. I’m not being disrespectful, but rarely have I had my eye on the Sanatorium side of things. I guess you could say that I’ve had tunnel vision during my three seasons in WWH. It’s always been about the road before me, but something tells me that I’m gonna have to rely on my peripheral vision. We’re in uncharted territory right now and I’m facing people I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting. What I do know about Kassandra is that she reaped the spoils of victory at Silence just like I have. So here we are in a situation where one of us will continue undefeated. I plan on continuing to hone my craft with each new encounter , using every match as a learning experience. And if Aaron was able to teach me a few new tricks, then I’m sure Kassandra can do the same.”
Stephanie nodded a few times as she remained silent.
“But, what I said about the Sanatorium set seems to remain true. It takes more than being hardchore to beat me in the ring. Those who pose a challenge for the Queen of Fighters are those who can adapt to any situation in the ring. They are people who can outsmart their opponent and know when to be vicious and when to be cautious. I commend her on her victory over Lily Evans. But, our shared night of victory is where our similarities end. My life doesn't revolve around following others, and from what little of Kassandra I've observed, it seems like she can't live without her attachment to Legion. I've had my experience serving under a cult of personality. When I thought the world had, forsaken me. I ran with a crew who took advantage of my lack of faith in humanity. This individual took my rage and forged it into a sword. I was a weapon whose sole purpose was to execute his wrath against those who stood against him. I had no sympathy for the people I hurt then until one day I realized that there were people who still cared for me. Like for starters, the family of my late mentor. They considered me to be one of their own. It was that connection that reminded me of what's really important. I freed my mind and eventually I fought against those who wanted to place me in a cage.”
“And you know what happened!? They kidnapped my mentor's youngest daughter and tried to force me back into their web. They tried to use every trick in the book to make me suffer because I choose independence over them. But you know what? I overcame them, saved the little girl and went about my life. I made some mistakes along, but I always pride myself on watching to the beat of my own drum. Kassandra? She has a ceiling. She can only go so high before Legion keeps her down so they can shine. But if she wants to be a loyal follower, then so be it. I’ll demonstrate to the world why it’s better to be someone who has their own mind. What I went through five years ago isn’t the only event that made me into who I am. Time has forged me into The Queen of Fighters you see before you. And with time comes experience. As long as I’m an active competitor, I will stay in WWH. I will continue to be one of the top stars of Dystopia and inspire future generations to live their dream of coming into this business to prove their mettle. Maybe my match with Kassandra will help her see the light. Maybe it won’t, I don’t know.”
Stephanie sighed as she recalled the much more simple times of her career.
“This industry can send you into a lot of different directions, Kassandra. I may not know you, but I know how it feels to be isolated from everyone around you. In fact, I was reminded recently that I’m not alone. And as long as I’m here on Dystopia, I’m home. I’m in a place where I’m not attached to any stables, where I’m not under some kind of bureaucratic pressure. I can just come in week in and week out and fight with some of the best up and coming talent in this company. I can learn from them as well as them learning from me. Kassandra is just another step forward in me maintaining this win streak. When that bell rings and Kass and I lock-up, she’ll learn that I’m not Lily Evans. She’ll see that I’m not Rey Lobo or Dark Wolf. Kassandra has only been in this business for like what a year now? Maybe more perhaps. This is just the start of a journey for her, and in some ways I’m jealous. In many ways I’m on the opposite end of that spectrum and let me tell you, it all passes in just a snap of one’s fingers. One day you’re in wrestling school and the next you’re wondering just how much more matches you have left in you. Kass and The Hive don't need to fret because I still have plenty left in me. Hell, I don’t mind taking on each member one on one and showing that darkness isn’t always the answer to your problems. When you have a group that’s an aggregate of hate and pain, nothing good comes out of it. My mom used to say ‘hurt people hurt people’. But after a while you can only hate so much before it tires you out and you have nothing left. You’ll be tired and exhausted as if you can’t do anything else. You have no energy inside of you to get anything done. You’re just a creature of negativity, eating yourself wholly from the inside.”
Stephanie shrugged her shoulders as if there was something she thought about before. The thoughtful veteran sighed to herself as she already realized that there was not much she could do to help her upcoming opponent.
“As much as I want to continue and try to find a way to understand my opponent, all I can do is continue to train and prepare to stand my ground. I plan on walking into the Honda Center in Anaheim undefeated. I intend on walking out still undefeated. And from there I’ll take everything I’ve learned and apply it to the next match. Each step of the way I’ll get closer and closer to achieving my goals. And unlike Kassandra, I don’t need to be led by the nose to achieve it.”
Stephanie stands up and turns to the camera.
“Know it. Understand it. Believe it.”
Stephanie walks away from the view as the scene fades.
