However, the first match is interrupted by the return of Conrad Leto, the 27th Wizard King who had been sealed away by Julius Novachrono for turning against the kingdom. Together with the Imperial Sword "Elsdocia", Conrad has revived three dead Wizard Kings—Princia Funnybunny, Jester Garandros, and Edward Avalaché—and enacts his plan to turn the colosseum into a weapon.
