The Black Hawks prepare to leave for battle as Teito and Hakuren investigate the scene of the crime. As Teito meets the Guardians, Hakuren strikes a dark figure that appears behind Teito, but it is revealed to be Bastien, who is also searching for clues. When questioned, Bastien reveals his past with Frau, but leaves when his shift ends. Noticing the tainted Baculus, Hakuren realises that the Warsfeil within the Church was Bastien, and the two rush to Bastien's room to confront him. Evading the guards, the pair discover a secrete passageway where Bastien awaits them. He attacks Teito for treason against the Barsburg King for escaping with the Eye of Mikhail. When Hakuren intervenes, Bastien holds him captive and threatens to kill him if Teito does not surrender himself.
