The story of No-Damn-Name, a loving mother
Chapter 2: Reflections

Sensing that time is running out on the safety of the world's newest Alter, Chalice expands her search. But as she closes in, new complications arise: Chalice finds herself juggling impossible responsibilities to her family, her Alters family, and an impoverished, now-homeless family she barely even knows. As past guilts intensify, she must stand fast against the pressure of her new responsibilities, or be consumed.

"In essence, any superhero comic where the hero has a secret identity, can be seen as a metaphor for identity issues. However, Alters ramps this metaphor up to eleven."
–Andy Hall of comiccrusaders.com
