I'll start with a little background - towards the end of the first story in the series one of the henchmen (Vee) takes his payment and leaves, not to be seen again. The heroes go on to take down the main villain, but one of them (June) is incapacitated. Two years later, we catch up with June, who seeks revenge on Vee for the murders of her mother and brother. The trail has gone cold, but a new threat arises in a distant city. June's mentor wants her to investigate because it's the kind of thing he trained her for, but she wants to put her efforts into her vendetta. Upon hearing that Vee is in the city, June decides to head over there. So now I need a valid reason for this plot convenience. Vee is trying to evade capture by the police, since the gang he led is responsible for a seven year long reign of terror over a large city (a different location to the one in this story). The people in the city in this story are under attack from "waking nightmares" and has largely been evacuated, so it could be that he went there intending to get away from the crowd and loot to his heart's content, but this doesn't seem to be a good enough reason to me. I'd like to know what you think of this reason.
