- The battle against Rubia Elstein
This volume is set in the middle of the Blade Dance's final round, «Cross Fire». After the team was separated, Kamito finally reunited with Ellis and Rinslet. Later they found Fianna but only to find out that Claire was already in Ren Ashbell's hands. Not only that, while he was trying to save her, something was awakening inside Kamito.
Claire and Fianna confronted Rubia Elstein who approached them. Claire refused to believe it and claimed that she might be Sjora Kahn transformed into her. However, as she demonstrated her power, it was obvious that she was the real one. Rubia tried to persuade Claire to join her and become "the «Darkness Queen» that serves the demon king". Rubia eventually needed to force Claire to cooperate by using a type of mind manipulation. Fianna, unable to use her spirit anymore, picked up «Vorpal Sword» and faced Rubia. Rubia then said she does not need Restia anymore and attempted to destroy her completely with her flame. By doing that, Claire broke free from her mine control and summoned out Scarlet. At the moment, light-ball-like spirits had gathered, spirits that «Divine Ritual Institute» released to broadcast the state of the «Blade Dance». Because Rubia could not let her face be seen and Scarlet was holding her back, it was a chance to escape. Claire did not have any stamina left to escape anymore so she told Fianna to escape alone with Restia. Claire also entrusted Scarlet to Fianna through a contract transfer, to transfer spirit from nobles to a member of loyal family. Fianna promised Claire to find Kamito and come to rescue her.

Alone with Muir, Kamito asked her about what happen the day he left «Instructional School». Muir was defeated by the demon attacking the facility and escaped. She met Lily two years later and join their organization. Lily introduced her to «Cardinal», who currently called herself Ren Ashbell. Muir did not know her goal but she was told to make Kamito "awaken". Finishing their conversation, Kamito asked if Muir want to return to the Empire with him. However, Muir did not answer.
An explosion was heard coming from afar, Rinslet and Ellis noticed a flying dragon on the sky spitting fireballs at the ground. They also noticed there is a light flashed from the ground. It was Fianna's spirit crystal. They decided to go get Kamito and hurried to aid Fianna.
