||Derek Shiningstar (in the shadows) gives Thomas Boyd the codename "Stalker" and sends him to capture the five teens. Boyd travels to Sanctuary posing as a runaway. Using his power to steal others' energy he knocks out four of the group. When he tries the same with Stasi, he finds that she is immune to his powers. During their battle, their powers lock and Stasi overcomes Boyd rendering him unconscious. Stasi heals the other four but then returns to find Boyd gone.
