When the Nevians arrived on the Homeland, they not only demonstrated their military might, they brought with them nearly invisible entities that hungered to feed off the worst of human emotions. The entities particularly lusted after those with exceptional Talent in order to twist it under their control.  
Nevian Talents knew how to fight off the Molochs, Talented humans did not. Karra was no more than a child when a Moloch approached her. It offered her the strength to settle the forces that had turned her world into chaos. Such beings usually ignored children, but once this child fully matured, the Moloch who approached her planned to feed off her emotions as she experienced life in all its darkest beauty.  
The adult Karra, once she understood what had happened, realized she either needed to find a way to defeat the alien, or allow it to control her and take away all she loved, especially her daughter.

Her journey took her into the home of Commissioner Del A’nden, the Nevian general in charge of the city in Sector Five.  From him she learned that not all Nevians were then enemy.  As she began to fall in love with him, her brother Jem, who wanted Sector Five for himself, coerced her into working for him as a spy for the Homelander Front.

All this was to the Moloch’s delight, who relished each painful twist of her emotions.  

But all Karra wanted was to be reunited with her daughter, an impossibility since she was serving the Front, and A’nden, under an alias.  

Finally everything boiled to a head.  Karra fled both the Nevian, her brother Jem and, and at long last the beast who imprisoned her for most of her life.  She snatched her daughter, Chalatta, away from her sister who has been caring for Chalatta while she “worked things out.”  Nothing quite worked out, but she knew one safe place, her daughter’s father.   

Karra had kept her daughter away from him because his ability to use Talent was so great it terrified her. But there was no other place to go.  Her enemies frightened her even more than he did.

When Chalatta asked where they were going, she explained, “We’re going home, baby.”

“For how long, Mama?”

“As long as we can make it,” she said, because for all his Talent, she knew her daughter’s father would see that nothing happened to either her or their child.  They would finally be safe.
