Joining the GrailEdit

Klaus Starr shoots the remaining candidate

Featherstone and Hoover show Jesse's power

Starr was shown footage of Jesse using Genesis but was barely interested. As he left for his date, Starr ordered Featherstone and Hoover to kill Jesse and his friends. His date was later interrupted and left abruptly. The following day, he prepared to execute Hoover and Featherstone for their botch but decided to spare them after Featherstone insisted they use "B.R.A.D." the next time. Starr then spoke of a rape fantasy and requested they order him professionals.[4]

Klaus Starr buggered by male prostitutes

As Starr reviewed surveillance of Jesse speaking of God being missing, he finally decided to review Jesse's file. As he reviewed an Angelville pamphlet later, three male prostitutes barge into his office. Starr dismissed them, stating he wanted women but they take his "no" as a "yes" and Starr was buggered by a prostitute as he was held down by the other two. During which, Starr sparked an idea and ordered Featherstone to call off "B.R.A.D." after the prostitutes left.[4]
