Elizabeth is shocked at Shin’ichiro’s recent actions; torn between her loyalty to Shin’ichiro and her friendship with Mafuyu and Tomo, she inquires Shin’ichiro the rationale for this only to encounter a swift »Shut up and leave me alone!!!« dismissal that obfuscates Shin’ichiro’s reminiscing over his prologue with Elizabeth who is recharging her soma. Meanwhile, Sasha is shocked at how Father Yuri has kept him in the dark about Shin’ichiro’s subterfuge; still, as Ekaterina points out, Shin’ichiro is far too dangerous because of the insidious powers he has that helped compose the prologue he has of having incinerated many people on behalf of the Adepts with a snap of his fingers. Fuming over being ordered neutrality when Tomo’s life is in danger, Sasha reflects upon his prologue with Olja and having to dig by hand to bury her corpse before setting course toward Shin’ichiro’s lair. Frightened for both Sasha and Tomo’s safety, Mafuyu prosecutes a divergent concourse with Sasha before offering him her soma and an admonition for perpetual vigilance as she starts off ahead of him. Elizabeth and Sasha’s duel ultimately becomes the ironic backdrop for manifesting the full scope of the occult and ethical imbroglio Yuudai Yamanobe has embroiled unto his daughter Tomo: Tomo is the remote proxy avatar of the Aurum (Gold) Qwaser.
