Summary

At the Crimson Lion Headquarters, Fuegoleon Vermillion still lies comatose and their Magic Knights are engaged in a fight against an elf, who is possessing the vice-captain, Randall Luftair. The elf comments on how weak humans are and the magic knights plead their vice-captain to stop the rampage as they sense intense magic power from him. The elf states that he will not stop until all the humans die. As the magic knights lose hope, Leopold Vermillion reminds them of their pride and asks them not to wither.[1] Hearing this the elf uses his Air Magic to show them the disadvantage they are in. Leopold thinks about how his air magic was supplementing his Fire Magic but the situation had reversed now. Leopold concentrates and fires his Spiral Flame but the elf puts it out using Air Blockade and damages him with Crushing Air Blast. Leopold stands back and disagrees that he will lose which boosts the morale of his teammates. The squad members decide to go for an all-out attack which ends out in vain as the elf moves out swiftly and takes out them.

Leopold launches a surprise attack on the elf which he anticipated and counters him with Crushing Air Blast but Leopold senses the attack as he reads the mana and dodges it. The elf claims it to be luck and charges at him but as Leopold counters it, he depicts that Leopold is adapting quicker and he needs to finish him off. Three fallen squad members steps in commenting about Leopold's growth rate and that they are willing to sacrifice themselves to buy time so that Leo and others can escape. Leo disagrees and tries to fight with them but he falls down and realizes that he had reached his limits. As the mages are distracted the elf closes in and defeats them, he also comments that Leopold will not become the captain since he will kill him right here. Leopold tries to force his body to move and refuses to believe that he is going to die here. Suddenly the elf and Leopold sense strange mana as the castle engulfs in enormous Fire mana making Leopold think that another enemy had appeared as it is powerful as the elves. But as Leopold senses it to be warm and embracing Fuegoleon with an arm made of flame steps out commenting that Leopold had done a good job. Fuegoleon extends his arm while the Salamander comes out, he declares that as the captain of Crimson Lions and as Leopold's brother he will never lose again.[2]

Fuegoleon recalls how the Salamander seeked him while he was in comatose. Fuegoleon appreciates everyone's effort as he felt the fiery mana coming from their battle. Leopold is amazed and acknowledges his brother's strength. The elf comments about how a human is receiving the blessing of a spirit but still looks down as he is just a human. Fuegoleon says that he will not hold back and launches Salamander's Breath, as the elf tries to erase it he notices that the flames are too intense for his magic to destroy and also feels suffocated. Using this chance Fuegoleon restrains the elf using Leo Palma. The squad cheers for Fuegoleon and Leopold thinks about how incredible his brother is, and how he will surpass his brother one day. Leopold then tells Fuegoleon that while he was asleep, their sister had taken over his duties which surprises Fuegoleon. Fuegoleon thinks about how his sister was originally supposed to be captain and how he had made her do something out of character. Fuegoleon senses that things have escalated quickly when he was sleeping and recalls the incident when William Vangeance as Licht caught him off guard and sliced his arm.

At the Golden Dawn headquarters, several elves have gathered possessing the squad members and discusses among themselves. An elf possessing Langris Vaude, Ratri, enters the hideout stating that he was imprisoned in a peculiar place. An elf tells Ratri, that the one that reincarnated them was his cousin Patolli. Ratri says that they will show the humans that the white night has ended and that the golden dawn will rise and is itching to kill humans.

Elsewhere Finral Roulacase snaps out of sleep and wonders what is happening. Yami Sukehiro kicks him out of bed and tells him about the situation. Finral feels the same ominous mana that he felt from his brother and decides that he will save his brother this time.[3]
