Cameos: Princess Serenity and Luna; Adam Young.
Strict Hellsing canon is in brown. The rest is a combination of history, crossovers, and previous events of Shine. You’ll notice that some of them have been rearranged; all in all, though, the events were generally the same.
We now return you to your normal state of comic-strip time-suspension.
