1: A happy couple – a feline and an otter – eat some street food in front of a snow leopard dressed in martian cosplay.

2: On a small stage, a three-person band perform.

3: The vague shape of a crowd shifts distantly between buildings. Down a more isolated street is a police station.

4: In the cold, sterile interrogation room of the New Cairo police department, a middle aged man – a Ruppell’s fox of stocky build with dusty orange fur and a swath of darker brown hair between his ears which he keeps swept to one side – sits quietly and alone. His right eye is milky white from blindness. He sits by a medium-sized rectangular table, framed by two chairs. A small window with frosted glass lets in some daylight.
