As the Black Hawks prepare to depart for Antwort, Teito, Burupya and Hakuren arrive at the scene of the crime, ready to prove Frau's innocence. The boys leave their Baculuses at the entrance and venture inside, where they are greeted by the Guardians of the Bridge of Trials, whom only Teito can see.

Despite finding no clues, as the room had been purified, Teito and Hakuren are soon joined by assistant Archbishop Bastien, who tells them all about Frau's childhood. Bastien leaves and goes to visit Frau in his cell. As the two boys walk away, Hakuren suddenly notices that their Bascules are tainted, which only happens when a Warsfeil touches them. They then begin to suspect that Bastien is the Warsfeil, so they rush after him in order to confirm this fact.

The Imperial Guard chases after Teito and Hakuren, but the two boys successfully evade the guards and enter Bastien's room, where they find a secret passage-way hidden behind the bookcase. When they arrive at the end of the corridor, they are greeted by Bastien, who immediately attacks the boys, using a Wars, and announces that Teito is to be executed for treason in the name of the Barsburg Empire.
