Of course, not everything can be solved with brutality, and the finesse of Reisen is perfectly suited for such situations. Another “sufferer” from the Aurora, her ability to control illusions took a bit to make itself known. What didn’t wait, however, were the brand new rabbit ears and tail that came to many women and girls after the event (including Yue). However, Reisen was affixed with the rarer crumpled-looking ears rather than the far more common floppy ears. Why? Nobody knows (Isn’t that wild?). All Casey really knows about them is they feel like soft, fuzzy leather and grabbing them apparently feels like having someone scratch a hard-to-reach place on one’s back. As for the tail, as Bog (Or God) as his witness he will one day grab it (And, you know, not get slapped for it). Though, knowing her, she’d likely just yell, get huffy, and stop talking to him.

It was pure chance that they met, really. Both being “Augmented Citizens,” they were assigned to the same company to fight in the Great War.

This, combined with the rest of the soldiers keeping the enemy distracted, led to an almost perfect combat record and the witch suffering no damage. All in all, a real bang up job. Since Casey and Reisen worked in such proximity to each other, they woul
