In a previous interview, Lance Raymundo tells PEP (Philippine EntertainmentPortal) about the plot of Xenoa 2. "Parang nag-cross yung taga-Xenoa andZephyrus, the good and bad, yung good alien and yung bad alien, nag-crossbreedsila at siya [Victor Basa] yung anak. He was born on Earth.
"Sina Isabel Granada, mga magulang na yun pero sa Xenoawalang tumatanda kaya mukha pa rin rin silang bata. Then I come in as a humanpoliceman na nagpapa-alis sa mga aliens."
As Chief Vondeux, Lance investigates the paranormal eventsthat are caused by the aliens. "Maraming mga crimes na ini-investigate ko. Nungnagsimula yung Xenoan crimes, napansin ko medyo kakaiba. Yung mga patay, grabeyung pagkakasunog ng katawan na parang hindi magagawa ng tao. So I began tofigure na baka may ibang force and that started my battle with the aliens, so parangMen in Black yung dating ko."
