This article is about the manga chapter. For the Ghost, see Relikt

Kapitel 42: Relikt is the forty-second chapter overall, and the first chapter of Volume 8 of the 07-Ghost manga series.

The volume was released on the 25th of May 2009 in Japan. Its ISBN is 978-4-7580-5415-7.


Teito wakes up in a dark place and soon realises that he is seeing and hearing pieces of his past; specifically about the plans to shift Pandora's Box into a new coffin. This is the first time that the ‘evil’ side of the Pope is seen in the series.

Back in the 7th district, it is revealed that Lance is Relikt. Labrador sends his apprentice, Ouida, away on the pretence of looking after Kyle (who had suffered at the hands of Lance on their travels).

Labrador and Castor then explain what they had found strange and why they had felt the need to call Lance back; the memories of Teito Klein differ to those found in the Cuvere, and because the powers of Vertrag left memories perfectly preserved, then the memories of the Cuvere must have been altered. They travel to the site of the Cuvere and enter under the admiring gaze of two nuns, who remark that the bishops are "sublime". Fortunately for the bishops, the nuns quickly scatter after a third, older nun chidingly directs them away, leaving no human witnesses in the bishops' vicinity.

As the three bishops enter Relikt’s tower, Labrador hesitates as if he senses something. However, he ignores it and enters the tower with Castor and Lance. The three of them present their scythes as an authorisation code and enter the Cuvere to examine the past.

Lance then uses Relikt’s power to turn back the clock ten years, therefore affecting everything in the chamber, reverting it to its state before it was edited. The three ghosts prepare to re-examine the history and find out the truth.
