In seeking the missing doctor at Bertha's behest, Chick acquires a ring containing a stone with unusual properties. One of the properties ages a male to an advance age, whereas it will not do the same for a woman. When Chick shows up, he is greatly aged by the ring.

Chick finds the group also searching for Doctor Holcolm. He explains some of the properties the ring displays, showing them the image of Doctor Holcomb and one of the investigator's dog, Queen. The pair had both earlier disappeared into the Blind Spot. Chick asks Harry Wendel to take the ring.

Later, in a battle with Rhamda Avec after the Blind Spot is opened, Chick Watson is transported to Tomahlia, and returned to youth. Chick meets one Rhamda Geos. Chick as seen as a fulfillment of a prophecy regarding the revelation of the occult as a reality. This sets Chick unintentionally at odds with Bar Senestro, who desires to become the Chosen One.
