Summary[edit | edit source]
The search for the missing Roseamanelle Ouka Barsburg (OR-0007) continues as Ouka questions her true identity. As the princess transforms into a child and falls into darkness, Teito Klein takes firm hold of her and tells her that she surely must have inherited the so-called baton of life from the true Ouka. The brainwashing ends for both the bearer of the Eye of Raphael and Raphael himself as Ouka realizes she had been allowed to live.
Emperor Wolfram Eifeler Barsburg recovers and Teito aims to have him open his eyes to the truth as well when Mikhail stops him to heal his wounds. The security systems in the OR-Lab are triggered and shoot Teito, and the Emperor plans to get rid of now unusable Ouka and re-install the Eye of Raphael in a new clone body that can be brainwashed. However, Chief Nanase arrives in time to stab the deranged emperor. The Emperor is stunned by such betrayal and falls, fatally wounded.
The doctor turns to the princess and asks her to leave with him, but Ouka refuses. Nanase becomes angry and attempts to choke Ouka. Raphael then comes to rescue his mistress, dealing a death blow to the doctor. Ouka, hearing the suffering of the other replicas in their tanks, tearfully destroys them all with Raphael's powers to allow them to rest. In a fit of panic and insanity, Nanase runs to his creations and is killed by the fire.
Wolfram escapes the blast but is confronted by Teito, who declines to kill him. A black shadow separates itself from the body of the Emperor and the Ghost Ea appears behind Teito, stating that the shadow is what is left of his fallen comrade.
