The Victorian has defeated Polecat in battle and has tied the unconscious heroine up. In order to make sure that she will not wake up anytime soon, he has poured out a vial of "Xynthillium" powder -- the powerful substance severs severs magical bonds, and keeps Lara from accessing her powers. Unable to overcome the effects of the chemical, our curvaceous crimefighter spends the next couple of days in a helpless, groggy state. All she can do now is wait for the Xynthillium to lose its potency. Poor Lara!
