February opened with the consequences of both Shiro and Piotr's attempts to conceal their family history, as Yakuza tried to kidnap Illyana Rasputin from a local teashop and use her as leverage against her brother. Only the intervention of Paige and Marie foiled the plan. Lorna, Bobby, and Marie were officially added to the staff of the school. Lorna was also finally discharged from the medlab, following her injury during Alex's loss of control. While settling back in, she met Remy for the first time.
With the various incidents causing concern for the students, Professor Xavier retained the services of his friend, Leonard Samson, to offer regular therapy services for the students and younger staff. By the end of the month, Lorna, Bobby, Shinobi, Angelo, Clarice, Manuel, Doug, Jamie, Amanda and Kitty all began regular sessions. Charles revealed to the new staff members that the new groundskeeper, Cain Marko, was actually his stepbrother and had grown up in the mansion. Jake recognized Kitty's hacking abilities, and offered her a position with Infonet should she ever decide she wanted one. However, the sudden divorce of her parents overwhelmed her thoughts immediately following.
Logan and Marie took a short vacation from the mansion, to work on their relationship and escape some of the stress. During their absence, Cain moved out to the old boathouse and Charles officially announced the creation of Red X, a joint venture between the school and the Red Cross to provide humanitarian aid during disasters.
Remy, Sarah, and Monet arranged for a night out for most of the students at the local night club using fake ids to gain entrance. The night was marred by a confrontation between Manuel and Remy that nearly brought out Gambit from his memories accidentally. Once back at the mansion and under the influence of the fantasies Kwannon projecting at him, Doug drunkenly e-mailed Marie to express his love. However, Kwannon used his addled state to force out the request Scott made of him to keep an eye on Betsy.
Trying to elevate some of the tension in the mansion, Shinobi and Marie took some of the staff and students to a local ski resort for the day. While gone, Lorna attempted to teach Manuel how to cook. Manuel used his powers on her in retaliation for her mocking of him, to make her binge on the food instead, badly burning her hand in the process. Remy discovered her later in her room, and dragged Amanda up to heal her burned hand. Soon after, Manuel and Kwannon psychically manipulated Marie-Ange into sleeping with Remy.
Kwannon's manipulations continued as she steals a love potion Amanda made for Doug and secretly dosed several female students and staff. Doug was besieged by offers, and only luck prevented the worst from happening. Once the effects wore off, Logan confronted Doug in the hall and threatened him. Viewing the exchange, Cain threatened Logan on the staff channel if he should ever approach a student with threats again. Marie-Ange made a devil's bargain with Manuel, that he use his powers to keep Doug from totally withdrawing or hurting himself from his guilt over the potion, offering to sleep with him in exchange.
Cain put his fortune in the hands of his investment broker, Cameron Hodge. Repercussions from the love potion incident led to a major fight between Jake and Alison. Jamie held a mixer between his HeliX group and the local teens, to both positive and negative results. Moira travelled to Lichtenstein after an e-mail from an old friend, and ended up returning with the newest member of the mansion, Nathan 'Cable' Dayspring. During this time, Alison and Sam ended their relationship. Emma made offers to both Manuel and Shinobi to join the White Court of the Hellfire Club under her direction. The staff started to notice Betsy's increasingly erratic behavior, and Scott confronted Kwannon about it.
In a bizarre incident, Illyana was kidnapped by a demon named Belasco in his bid to empower Limbo. Several of the students and teachers went to save her, but by the time she was retrieved, the strange time slips of Limbo aged her over eight and a half years. The fight put several people in the medlab with injuries. Soon after, Doug and Marie-Ange began their relationship. That weekend, Emma took a group to a party at the Hellfire Club, only to discover that the missing Alex was in the thrall of Selene, and they rescued him, returning him to the mansion.
