|“||Think of it as an earth cleanse. It will be beautiful. Follow us. Follow us and be free.||”|
Beth is a higher-ranking officer of the Doomsday Group. She advertises the One Light, is a main speaker at their rallies, and is in charge of making everybody enthusiastic about the so-called "planet cleanse."
Beth first appears on television during an interview with Sofia Tabernilla, a news reporter. Tabernilla says to the camera that she is currently at the scene with one of the group's "key organizers", then she asks the girl about the Doomsday Group's message and goals. When the microphone is held out to her, Beth says that their collective goal is to introduce everyone to the One Light—calling it "an invitation for change"—then take control of the world. Tabernilla, now under the hypnosis, clarifies this, and the girl nods, smiling. Before Fang (who is watching that news channel) can fall under it as well, Star switches the program to Project Runway.
Beth appears later on during the beginning of the Paris rally. She appears onstage, holds up her hands after some people begin to clap, and then thanks everyone for coming. (Fang whispers to Maya that she's the girl from the news.) She goes on to say that she hopes everyone is here for the rally, and jokes that if they're here for a concert by Susie Lee, they're in the wrong place. Beth asks to the crowd, "Who are we?" and introduces herself, though she says that her name doesn't matter and that what matters is her belief in the One Light. The One Light, according to her, is hope. After she claps her hands, a screen displays various optimistic scenes of people and nature; Beth goes on to say afterwards that the One Light teaches people responsibility for their own actions and is about love, not hatred...then she shows the next series of images. This time, they illustrate pollution, animal abuse, and suffering humans. Beth asks the crowd if they did this—"No!" they scream in response—and if it would be enough if the ones who did said sorry—"No!" again. She proclaims that they need to wipe the slate clean and start over in a new world (a concept referred to as tabula rasa in philosophy)—a world in which everything and everyone is healthy and happy.
She asks everyone to join her in a song about the cult; she is last mentioned at the end of the chapter, beaming lovingly.
