The Highlands in Scotland was the home of Number Two and Conrad before they fled to England following an altercation with Mogadorians where Conrad kills a Mogadorian Scout, alerting them to their location. Their safehouse is subsequently destroyed but Two and Conrad escape and travel separately to their safehouse located in London.
London is home to the Mogadorian London Base which occupies five floors of a skyscraper. This base has facilities that monitor the city's camera systems, suspicious and loric related internet posts and searching for strategic advantages. General Sutekh visits this base with Adamus and Ivan when tracking Conrad.
After a altercation with the Mogadorians in the Scottish Highlands, Conrad Hoyle escapes and travels to England where he intends to meet Number Two as they had split up at an unknown point. However, he is followed by a second scout team and ambush on a bus in London, during the battle the bus explodes and Conrad battles hard until he is killed, presumably by Ivan.
Adamus is left at the base, acting weak after awakening from his three year coma. He notices that a certain blog post has been flagged, an act of desperation by Number Two. Adamus finds her at an apartment and convinces her that he is a member of the Garde but she soon realises he is not, he attempts to help her flee but Ivan arrives before they can leave. He realises that Two is the next in line to be killed and slices her throat. Later, Adamus shows his first sign of defiance by questioning why Two had to die to his father. Consquently the General punches him in the face.
