Damn this is great, not mentioning the eerie touch of the background giving it a nice mood , also good thing cause now I finally remember to continue reading romanticlly apocalyptic haha. Keep up the good work.
The Lifealope made a big plant monster. Plant-stuff everywhere. Lifelope is a mutant Biomatrix, so the red thing is a mutant Lifealope, or maybe just a normal Biomatrix (if you mutant a mutant is it a non-mutant?). Its probably a random mutation caused by the excessive planty growth. As for looking like Annet... Hmmm. It probably got information about her appearance when the G-network was frantically scanning for help on episode a-hundred-and-seventy-nine.
Either that, or she's a mascot representing all teams in the comic. Once she gets a heart-mug and gasmask she's be like "yes, I am Anneminionmatrixalope!"
