|Jaka's Story: Pogrom's Progress|
Cerebus apologizes to Jaka for all his past mistakes, and then tells her in no uncertain terms that he won't leave without her. Jaka explains that she doesn't love Cerebus anymore, but she is afraid for his safety. Rick overhears all this, and realizes just who Cerebus really is (possibly learning who Jaka really is as well - this isn't entirely clear.)
Young Jaka wakes up to find "insects" floating about her room. Missy protects Jaka from them.

12. Did Lord Julius molest young Jaka?
DAVE: Someone molested young Jaka (you guessed what the creatures in her fever dreams actually were). She's blocked out who, but Lord Julius would obviously be a suspect.
"I should probably have made clearer in my earlier answer that Jaka was indeed molested as an infant but that the recollection was very deeply buried,only coming out in fever dreams, as an example. That is, my having conveyed that information, there is a part of Jaka you know more about than she does. It would actually be unlikely that Lord Julius would be the culprit. In the context of absolute political power there just wouldn't be any occasions when the Grandlord of Palnu would be left alone with his infant niece. What would even be the pretext? Of course at the Caesarian level you don't need a pretext, but it would be extremely unlikely for an Augustus,although I grant you it would be less unlikely for a Nero or a Caligula."
