S (character) sees this other version of Sola while in B—- who Ostrero tells him is not Sola but Szalómé, a worker in the Vévoda Armament Works factory. She reminds S. of Sola and seems familiar as she was and also seems to recognize him but looks older, about 5 years, and fuller with a rounder face and no long braid but short, thick curls that hang choppily around her shoulders. Controversy surrounds her recent hiring to the factory to do a job involving book keeping that Pfeifer believed didn't need to be done before. Pfeifer also thinks she may be a spy working with Vevoda.
S. goes on a hunt to find her, believing that they have a certain, important connection.
