Beta, well, he goes on a trip to open his eyes and ends having two faces… no really… half Beta walker mask and half Alpha’s skin. He’s even more creepy… and dangerous now that he has a horde of his own. And Eugene, Yumiko, and King Ezekiel set off to meet up with a possible new group that ends with a flamboyant stranger.
