- The Lupus Philodox Red Talon known as Forest-Runner arrives at the Sept of the Changing Seasons in the Great Smoky Mountains following the reintroduction of red wolves to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and soon becomes its Master of the Rite.

- Only Gawain Alexander and two other members of his squad make it out of a fight in Mogadishu, thanks to a micromanaging officer who made everything "need-to-know."
- April 16: At about 11:30am, William Arthur Smith is questioned by his doctor, Dr. Zimmermann, regarding his prosthesis. She then unveils a wholly-realistic arm and asks if he's interested in meeting the company behind it. This marks Smith's entry into Iteration X.
- April 22: William Arthur Smith is interviewed by Decillion, who offers him a position within Iteration X. On one of Decillion's monitors, Smith witnesses a car accident. One of the victims will later be identified as Smith, allowing him to "[drop] off the face of the earth" for the next eight months.
- April 23: William Arthur Smith's DEI is successfully implanted. He later awakens at precisely 7:00:00.00, and begins working on the Duplex Recycling disassembly line at precisely 9:00:00.00. Due to his disability, he has great difficulty keeping up with the pace of the other workers. 1011100010 disciplines Smith.
- April 24: William Arthur Smith redoubles his efforts on the Duplex Recycling disassembly line, stimulated by the ringing in his nerve endings. That night, he meets the AES of Lao Tzu.
- April 30: At the beginning of the Great Horizon Festival, a mysterious symbol appears on the Tenth Seat in the Council of Nine's Council Chamber.
- May 16: William Arthur Smith's cell is broken into by another Cipher, who demands Smith's food. 111011010 won't take no for an answer, and Smith is in no position to resist. The Cipher brags about his skills with electronics, being kicked out of the cadets, and his contempt for minorities.
- May 17: Tecson asks William Arthur Smith if he'd met the other Cipher. Smith says no. Tecson says he does not accept lies.
- June 17: Tecson report on William Arthur Smith makes reference to the "offence" of May 16, and notes that Smith has not improved sufficiently and has performed poorly in the arena. He will allow three days for recovery, then return to routine, double-hard to make up for lost time.

- October 22: Tecson makes note of a new Digital Enhancement created by a BioMechanic which reportedly imprisons a Dreamspeaker's Avatar. Through it, they have learned of entities called Children of Gaia (or Theurge in their own language). Decillion later identifies these entities as werewolves, noting that since their power only extends to nature and they avoid cities, it's 83.1% probable that they cannot transform in urban environments.
- Deborah comes to Verbena priestess Mother Celene, looking for power; Robin rescues Teague from some gay-bashers; Jon is saved from hunters by Jarrol; a shape-changing woman overhears Kamaria's plea for help; Sarah helps Takoda; and Aileen is befriended by Stargazer.
- November 2: 111011010 returns to William Arthur Smith's cell, looking haggard and sporting a purple bruise on his temple. He asks Smith for help, but Smith refuses. Once he leaves, Smith files a report. Once 111011010 leaves, Decillion triggers his nanotech failsafe. No evidence remains, but Smith has proven his loyalty.
- December 21: Deborah, Teague, Jon, Kamaria, Takoda and Aileen are introduced to the Verbena by Rhianna Flamedancer.
