Determined to show that Wolf's Dragoons still exist, Maeve Wolf reconstitutes the Black Widow Company, with Stacy Church as the new Black Widow. Church is hesitant to accept the mantle of Natasha Kerensky's immense legacy, recalling how her trinary was destroyed in the scouring of Outreach when the Broadsword Legion mercenaries betrayed them and turned against them all of a sudden. Church herself pressed on, but ultimately only survived because Maeve Wolf and other Dragoons came to her aid in time.
