During Cerebus' second Ascension he falls through the roof of her living quarters, and they have a talk over tea (for her) and whiskey (for Cerebus). She does all of the talking, telling Cerebus about women's true nature of being mind readers, and how men and women are opposites and deserve each other.
Her talk so upsets Vera that she throws her transcript in disgust and storms out to get the guards. The original Cirin then ushers Cerebus out through the basement to the Horseshoe Tavern where he'll be safe. She gives him money for the night and promises that an account will be set up so he can stay there indefinitely.
