Synopsis
Crimson Fox is being hunted by Sir Edmund Grasse, whom she meets at an antique perfume container exhibition. They are initially smitten with each other and she goes with him to his home. Once there, he paralyzes her with a drugged lip gloss. He wants to analyze her natural control over pheromones, and needs her alive but incapacitated. She overcomes his drug and barely escapes, only to end up in a kennel of wolves Grasse keeps on his property. Spraying Grasse with a pheromone she stole from his lab, the wolves attack him. Using her power, she calls the wolves off as he lies unconscious.

It is unclear from this story whether this is Vivian or Constance D'Aramis. They are twin sisters that both use the Crimson Fox identity.
