Taylor was able to convince Panacea to modify her power in the hopes of gaining an advantage in the fight against Zion. While successful Taylor rapidly loses her ability to communicate with others.
She begins targeting specific parahumans that are able to assist her task, starting with Doormaker and Clairvoyant, subsuming Teacher's students, the Yàngbǎn, and still incarcerated prisoners in the Birdcage. This led to Dragon, her friend and mentor, to oppose her.
