Summary[edit | edit source]
The scientists of Hohburg Fortress search the mind of a sleeping Teito, and during the search, Mikhail appears. He notices that one of the locks on the gate has been broken and attempts to fix it but is stopped by Ayanami, who orders him to obey him. When Mikhail refuses, Ayanami reveals that Teito is wired to a machine that releases brainwaves that frighten him, meaning the only way Mikhail can protect Teito is by listening to Ayanami. As Mikhail leaves, Teito regains control and remembers when Frau patted his head.
Later, Teito recovers in the bathroom, and Konatsu tells him that the royal family attendant has called for him. When Teito arrives it is revealed that he has been made a guard of Princess Ouka, and has to go disguised as Miroku's adopted son, member of the Barsburg Family, and fiancé candidate. As Hakuren and Teito walk down the hallway, Hakuren attempts to make Teito remember his past, showing him Burupya as proof. Teito, however, struggles to believe him.
Meanwhile, the Emperor of Barsburg plots the assassination of Roseamanelle, as when she chooses a husband the next day, he will be forced to retire and the husband will become emperor of Barsburg. The 'shadow man' appears from behind the emperor and is revealed to be his war advisor, the one who has convinced him to kill the princess, and the emperor orders the wielder of the Eye of Mikhail to be imprisoned. Frau, Castor and Labrador prepare to infiltrate Hohburg Fortress while Ryuu and Nene watch.
