Hostess Raven's backstory. A freak show carnival is in town. One the "freaks", who appropriately calls himself "Duck Boy" visits the nightclub to have a few drinks and catch a song or two from Raven, who's performing that night. As Raven turns up the heat in the room with her classy performance, infatuated Duck Boy starts to feel seriously ill and collapses. Robot guards suddenly arrive and quarantine the place claiming that a viral infection has spread and Duck Boy was one of the carriers. A mysterious man approaches Raven and warns her that she's in danger and that they must leave immediately. He explains that Raven is an unwilling pawn in a corporate conspiracy to commit genocide.
