The Wards vs. The Adepts is a battle between the Adepts and a team of Wards.
Skitter's Surrender gave the Wards an accomplished but tricky Heroine to adapt to their structures. The idea was to dunk her into the deep end to see how she coops.
Luckily the Adapts had been making a nuisance of themselves by poaching a Wards member.
Things go back and forth pretty quickly
Hopefully the Adapts got the message about not poaching Ward members.
