1 "An Odd Bunch" Mariah Hoplins Fitzpatrick Sinclair May 31, 2019
The elder and original personifications of universal events such as karma, coincidence, tragedy, glitch, poetic justice, bad and good luck, attempt to train their younger descendants into preserving the craft of making such events occur, but they are incautious to this and one of them is fronted with human beings, endangering all of their lives in the process. Due to this, he is executed publicly as exposure to human beings is a crime punishable by death. In the aftermath, the rest of the descendants take their training very seriously. Concurrently, Good and Bad Luck reminisce on retiring earlier than the other personifications.
2 "Big Karma" Ronald Munoz Poul Lynge May 31, 2019
Karma's position as the de facto leader of the prototypes comes into question by Coincidence, who tacitly states he's much more elderly than her and wages a competition among them to crown the true leader. They must secretly enhance a down-on-her luck teenage girl who's fired from her job at a retail store due to her snout-faced boss enraged that she wouldn't allow him to sexually abuse her, which is implied. Karma assists her by having her boss fired after numerous girls come forward accusing him of sexual harassment. Coincidence, meanwhile, tries to make his magic work, but indeliberately has another honcho, this type from the entertainment industry, outed for inappropriate conduct with his female clients, despite actually having his awkward interactions misinterpreted. As an endgame, he is jailed for 90 years with a possibility of parole when he's 50. Coincidence is berated by the others for his lack of forethought or planning, but Karma accedes the chaos by stating that no one is faulty and arguing will not "rewind what was unpreventable and the actions of the human species". Coincidence then resigns and commits himself to silent treatment for the remaining years of his life.
3 "Serendipity The Fool" Antonio Ward Robert Hilsey June 28, 2019
Serendipity is one of the more impressionable personifications who grants a young boy the pleasant surprise of unearthing and adopting a stray puppy following the death of his elderly dog from natural causes. Here she realizes she cannot avow serendipity to herself and has an identity crisis. Only in confiding to Karma does the latter advise her that she has a "unique gift" which can "alter" people's lives for the better, that it shouldn't matter if she can't apply this to herself.
