Jules see's the gang war in progress.
I'll give you the short version:
One side (the south streeters) are led by Linen emerald, a guy in green robes with a shield/missile power. The other is led by Shell, a man with guns for hands. They and their armies are battling at the corner of main street, fighting over who controls the library. You see a strange figure talking to Linen.
