When a 12-year-old takes over the Lair's computer, the Phantom must reveal his secret identity to the mysterious Mr. Cairo in order to save the child from Graft's attack.
The Phantom is nearly tricked into revealing the Lair's location when he breaks into Maximum's computer system. However, he is saved by a warning from a 70-year-old computer hacker named Alice. On another break-in attempt, the Phantom is warned of a second trap by the mysterious Mr. Cairo, who appears only as a hologram. Mr. Cairo identifies himself as a "dealer" in information, and gives the Phantom Alice's address as a sample of what he can do.
Kit Walker visits the address in a poverty-stricken sector of Metropia and discovers that Alice is really a 12-year-old street kid named Sparks who uses his home-built computer equipment to change his face and voice on the network. When Sparks links up with the Phantom's computer long enough to use it to break into Maximum's system, Graft believes the attempt is the Phantom's and launches an all-out attack on Sparkıs home. Mr. Cairo offers to trade the attack's location for verification that Kit is the Phantom, as he suspects.
With Sparks's help, the Phantom defeats Graft, but Sparks is left homeless. The Phantom then invites Sparks to live in the Lair with Aunt Heloise and the others. Meanwhile, Rebecca offers Mr. Cairo a fortune for the identity of the Phantom and for reasons we don't learn, Mr. Cairo unexpectedly acts as if he doesn't know the answer.
