Sting 26.6 is the seventh chapter of Sting. The group tracks the portal, Saint doesn't help. They enter the Nine's Lair. Grey Boy stole Aster. Weaver attacks, kills Cherish, Screamer, and Aster. Some of the Nine escape.
Following her Failure to stop the abduction of Nilbog Defiant pilots the Pendragon to the goblin kingdom, taking many capes - including Weaver, Chevalier, Bitch, Parian and Foil - and two members of the Dragon's Teeth to stop the Slaughterhouse Nine directly.
During the flight, he has a private conversation with Chevalier.
When they land, Defiant is one of the primary combatants in holding off the monstrous horde, fighting back to back with Weaver at points. During the battle, Saint refuses to assist the group and Defiant contacts someone, letting them know where to find and hunt down Saint. He then - with assistance from Dinah - computes the required number to track the Slaughterhouse Nine to their dimensional pocket and leads the group of capes after them.
They are able to infiltrate the dimension. Jack continues to try and taunt the group with the assistance of Screamer.
They find a video of Grey boy kidnapping Aster, imprisoning the Pure and torturing the on site PRT agent for information.
Weaver shoots Aster.
It is suggested that defiant take the munitions from the dimension to use against the nine group in Houston.
- It should be noted that Asters own mother was willing to kill her, rather than let her fall into the hands of the nine.
