One by one, each of the girls die from poor Honkai adaptability, and the lab personnel's terrible treatment of her and her friends traumatizes Sirin. Sirin survives due to her innate Honkai adaptability, and apparently, her ability to purify the Honkai in her blood (although she describes the pain caused by this process as excruciating). She is the lab's prime test subject, much to her chagrin. It is later revealed that the reason so many were dying of Honkai radiation in Sirin's village is because Babylon was infecting the villagers with Honkai in an attempt to find those with resistance.
