Rhamda Avec arrives in San Francisco inquiring about Doctor Holcolm. When Avec seemingly is unaware of common facts regarding cigars and the sun, a clerk at a newstand alerts police detective, Albert Jerome. In course of conversation, Jerome takes Avec to meet Doctor Holcolm. The pair leave together.

Later in the morning, Doctor Holcolm is discovered missing hen he fails to deliver a promised lecture. Rhamda Avec has disappeared as well. It discovered through further investigation that a doorway to another dimension, called the Blind Spot, exists in a mansion built in 1891. Rhamda Avec is from the Blind Spot, where Holcolm has disappeared.

Suspecting Rhamda Avec of foul play in the matter of Professor Holcolm's disappearance, Detective Jerome devises a chest plate designed to fire six bullets concurrently. Instead of using bullets, Jerome has gas pellets made to knock out Rhamda. The pellets prove ineffectual against Rhamda Avec.
