Head of a Woman is the first official episode of Project Stein. It takes place at Renaissance Era in 2 February 1504 Θ.


Using the one-time traveling battery, the SSS went to Rome, Italy during the Renaissance Era in search of the artsonist group best known for vandalizing classic arts; The Artsonist. Valentino explained that he could only obtain a disposable battery for now as he couldn't purchase a permanent fuel for the time machine. He also introduced the crew to Darwin Robertson, a merchant from the future that sells various stuffs through his own time machine.

Valentino explained that what happens in the future wouldn't change so long as the corresponding actions they did was in the same or similar order to the ones in the World Line they're aiming to achieve. In short, the Delta World Line is a major branch of the Alpha World Line and that the actions they would commit as the SSS will move them to the Delta World Line and that no major changes would happen in the present or future.

To test the outcome of the travel, Valentino decided to take Reuss into his ancestor, Angelo Novara's studio. However, all they found there was a head of a lifeless model named Maria Murcielago. Shortly afterwards, Angelo entered and almost fainted seeing his decapitated model. Reuss ordered Al to calm Angelo down while the rest investigated the murder possibly committed by The Artsonist. Valentino also handed a bottle full of translator pills to help Reuss understand the native's language.

The killer was incriminated to be Gianluigi Espinoza, a trader hailing from Southern Italy. Gianluigi himself was a member of the Artsonist, and he was ordered to kill Maria as she had failed several arson attempts of the vandals by refusing several artists' offers. The feculant villain also refused to speak about The Artsonists, and was sent to the local law enforcers for trial.
