|Cover Character(s)||Labrador |
Labrador and Hyuuga are still in battle, and Hyuuga seeks revenge for the attack that left Ayanami with a missing arm, attempting to cut off Labrador's arm. During the battle, Labrador attempts to trick Hyuuga with an illusion, but it fails to work and Labrador is defeated.
Meanwhile, Castor fights with Ayanami. Castor strikes out at Ayanami but it is revealed to be just a decoy doll allowing the real Ayanami to stab Castor through the chest. In the fight with Teito and Frau, Mikhail is ready to release his power when Teito tries to stop him. As he tries, brainwaves are sent that awaken his fears, and Mikhail is there to try to take away his pain, but Teito answered that it's wrong. Mikhail tries fighting the fear with him, but Teito remembers everyone's love for him, though not in time to stop Mikhail's attack.
Ayanami returns, and orders Teito to go for a check-up, then muses over the strange appearance of the 'shadow man' and realises that he is Landkarte. As Teito walks, Mikhail informs him that Frau is fine, and they decide to find Ouka in order to obtain the cursed ticket.
Back in the lab, several soldiers investigate a mysterious black mass inside a cage when suddenly it begins to move, scaring the soldiers there. As they flee, the mass is revealed to be Frau who was shielded by Verloren's scythe. Frau wonders why the scythe rescued him, since it obeys only Verloren and the scythe answers it found two people as food. Frau attempts to get out of the cage, but his arm, being bound to the scythe, is held inside. The cage is one specifically designed to keep the scythe in.
