Peggy is a quarter god who just wants to be left alone to drink and sing karaoke. Aster has dreamed of being a hero their whole life and isn’t going to let Peggy’s shitty attitude stop them. Together, they’ll become Pacific’s City most competent defenders.
Don’t Rock the Boat: Pacific City
They followed the man with the white hair down the paved stones that wound its way through the private bungalows.

Running with the Devil: Pacific City
This is how the phone call went: Aster: Hi, can you put Steve on the phone?
A Good Idea at the Time: Pacific City
They had left Naomi sitting on her new leather couch, bitterly weeping, with a promise to get things sorted. A promise to try to get things sorted.
