Operation Strix is the secret codename given to the mission assigned to Agent Twilight at the beginning of the show.

The aforementioned man is the leader of Ostania’s National Unity Party, meaning that he has a lot of influence in the country’s government. While not much has been said about his plan, W.I.S.E.’s agents believe him to be working towards a new war between Ostania and Westalis. Agent Twilight needs to get close to him and stop his plans before it is too late.

Despite initial complications, Loid and Anya worked hard to secure a spot in Eden Academy. From that point onward, the mission became stagnant, as Donovan is known for rarely ever leaving his home. However, during a parent-teacher conference, Loid had the opportunity to talk face-to-face with his target, which helped him discern what kind of person he was.

Loid and Anya are focused on finding a way for the young girl to befriend Donovan’s second son, Damien. If he and Anya become friends, the possibility of entering the Desmond’s house becomes an option for Agent Twilight. Sadly, the young Esper and Damien are not compatible and they tend to fight constantly, which only makes things more difficult for Loid.
