Brief SummaryEdit

At Hohburg Fortress, the higher-ups of the military demand Ayanami's execution after two fleet ships, lead by him, crashed in District 7. Faced with evidence of the Eye of Mikhail, the military decides to search for its master, and cover up the battle with Mikhail.

Right before the Bishop's Apprentice Exam, Teito finds out that his Zaiphon seems to have been drained since his loss of the Eye of Mikhail. Teito is mocked by Wade and Kyle but Hakuren silences them, and Ouida lends Teito some of his Zaiphon. The exam starts and the aspirant bishops go through several challenges: the first to overcome their fear, the second testing their biblical knowledge, and the third being them walking a tightrope. Finally, they reach the last challenge: which is to decide which one of them passes, as only one can walk through the door of the victor. After arguing with each other, they both decide to walk through the door of the defeated. Bishop Lance appears and tells them that their selfless solution made them pass.
