After tracking down the replicant Benny, Ash met with Wojciech, who informed her that there were no available jobs to hunt replicants. However, she ordered Ash to accept a job to find the missing wife and daughter of Alexander Selwyn, sending her to meet Selwyn in Santa Barbara.
For some time, Wojciech managed to keep Ash's disability – which required the use of a brace – a secret. However, after Ash was shot down and hospitalized, this information became known to the department and was not well-received. In the hospital, Wojciech informed Ash that Selwyn was dissatisfied with her performance, so she was taken off the case, which was re-assigned to Harry Bryant's division.
