Quote1.png For this you must understand, Lightray-- with Orion, the battle is not defense of the ideology... the ideology is but excuse for the battle. He lives, not for a cause, but for a war... not for success, but for a victory! He would deny it to his death but he could just as easily serve the cause of his father. Quote2.png

Synopsis for "Bloodline Part Three"

Tyrus attacks the Hunger Dogs' base in the chase for Orion. Jovita commands the rebels to evacuate instead of fighting, but Orion stays and fights them, answering to his violent nature. Orion kills Tracker, but Tyrus shoots him in the back, knocking him out. When Tyrus is about to finish him, Jovita knocks him and escapes with Orion but commands her fellow rebels not to kill the hunter, afraid of a possible retaliation sent by Darkseid.

Meanwhile, in the ruins of the Dreggs, Metron appears in front of Lightray and shows his fellow Genesisian images of Orion's past in contrast with Scott Free's life. Metron is worried that the strong emotions in Orion's soul could turn against New Genesis and make him join Darkseid's goal. Lightray understands that he must find Orion and bring him to Highfather as soon as possible, and he flyes out of the ruins to continue his quest.

Back in Armagetto, Orion wakes up and asks Jovita's help to find Section Zero, but she doesn't want to get involved with his quest and asks him to leave their land. While they talk, a wagon drives near them, transporting Darkseid's servant Volunteer and all the slaves he recruits by force to Apokolips' army. That's when Orion gets the idea to pose as a slave and join Darkseid's army.
