The unofficial New Year's party-goers found themselves grounded for under-age drinking. New faces in the mansion in January included the Cajun Remy "Gambit" LeBeau and English witch Amanda "Daytripper" Sefton, two 'problem cases' living on the streets in their respective countries. Several relationships began - Shinobi Shaw and Sarah Morlocke, Logan and Marie D'Ancato - whilst Doug Ramsey continued to be seen by the girls he liked as nothing more than a friend, in this case Marie. Paige Guthrie and Sam Guthrie argued over her relationship with Angelo Espinosa. Jake Gavin and Pete Wisdom were concerned about the newcomer Remy's similarity to an infamous assassin but agreed the new student was far too young to be him. Cain Marko upset the student population with a journal post and they tried unsuccessfully to dig up information on him. There were several trips to New York and Jake, Marie and Remy went to Washington DC, getting involved in the rescue of car accident victims in a snowstorm that hit on the way back. Shiro Yoshida's cousin requested Shiro arrange for Piotr Rasputin and Illyana Rasputin to be in town to meet with emissaries from the Yakuza family.
Betsy Braddock's behaviour at the start of the month concerned her and she spoke to Nathaniel Essex about possible complications of her surgery. Several unusual incidents occurred involving Betsy doing uncharacteristic things, including a highly violent sparring match with Logan. Alison Blaire and Scott Summers discussed their concerns, but concluded there was not much they could do although Scott enlisted Doug to watch Betsy's body language for changes. At the end of the month Betsy visited Essex in Baltimore and things get decidedly disturbing.
Pete's former employers invaded the school, using protocols Pete wrote for just such an occasion that called for using students as human shields. Several students were hurt and others were traumatised. As a result of the attack, Pete, Scott and Jake end up working together to make the mansion's security invasion-proof.
Shiro, Manuel de la Rocha and Amanda all had powers incidents, with Amanda discovering something about Cain gave her an intense magical charge. She used this charge to heal various people, but things were still too much for her to handle and she developed an addiction. Alison discussed the need to keep the nature of Miles Blaire's powers a secret with Pete after Shinobi told her he had considered using the boy against Sebastian Shaw.
