EtymologyEdit

戦士の亡霊[10] translates as "warrior ghosts." Unofficial proper name originated as a fan-reader term. "Ghosts" is always used in generic sense by characters.

An awakened hunt gossips about the Dabi hunt miraculously surviving in Alfons, despite being completely defeated. Rachel jokingly suggests Nina's hunt was rescued by "warrior ghosts from seven years ago."[11]

Audrey ironically echoes this comment after being rescued by "the ghosts."[12]

DescriptionEdit

Survivors of the Battle of the North, who deserted and hid in the mountains of Alfons for seven years. See 7-year timeskip.[13]

The seven Ghosts are four members of the Paburo hunt (Miria, Deneve, Helen, Clare), plus Cynthia, Tabitha and Yuma. It represents Clare's second major group bonding.[14]

Dae refers to them as "a mysterious group, prowling the lands..."[15]

HistoryEdit

AlfonsEdit

Despite risking exposure to the Organization, the Ghosts rescue the Dabi hunt.[16]

Meanwhile, in a deserted village, Clare finds evidence that Raki may be still alive. Back at the cavern hideout, she announces her intent to go south. Miria tests Clare's fighting ability. Satisfied with Clare's performance, Miria says she resigns as captain and will accompany Clare south. But everyone decides to go en masse.[17]

ToulouseEdit

Audrey's huntEdit

Miria, Deneve, Helen and Clare rescue Audrey's hunt from Riful.[18] Audrey inadvertently reveals that Alicia is "complete" (functional as controlled awakened being).[19]

RabonaEdit

In Rabona, Ghosts find town under siege by Agatha. Clare rescues Galatea.[20] Afterward, Miria relates her research on Organization—Miria's theory.[21]

During tavern party, Sid tells Clare that Raki was in town looking for her. Galk reassures Clare that she and Raki must meet again.[22]

Left behindEdit

Miria tells everyone to take care of personal business before the last battle with the Organization. Clare travels west to Lautrec—with Cynthia and Yuma—to find Raki. Helen goes south to Mucha with Deneve.

Miria will wait in Rabona for everyone's return. But she adds one caveat: "When the time comes, I'll go forward alone if I must,"[23] foreshadowing the events of Scene 106.

Later, Tabitha senses Alicia and Beth speeding westward. Miria suspects their target is Riful. Dietrich confirms her suspicions.[24] With Alicia-Beth preoccupied, Organization's main defense is gone.[25]

Miria sees her opportunity to attack the Organization—alone. To prevent Tabitha from following, Miria paralyzes Tabitha. Then puts on her old uniform and sets out for Sutafu.[26]

SutafuEdit

Miria's attackEdit

At Headquarters, Miria disables most warriors, as she did Tabitha. But ends up fighting Twin Trainees, with similar Controlled Awakening as Alicia and Beth.[27]

Rafutera uses Yoma power harmonization to entrain Miria's mind, enabling other warriors to cut down Miria.[28] But warriors only pretend to kill Miria. Men in Black believe Miria is dead. Meanwhile, the Ghosts journey to Headquarters in hopes to rescue Miria.[29]

RebellionEdit

ReappearanceEdit

Later, as Rebellion starts, Miria reappears to lead rebels.[30]

Men in Black stay indoors as Limt orders the Abyss Feeders to be released. The Abyss Feeders attack the rebels. Miria orders weaker warriors to retreat, while single-digits fight Feeders.[31]

Dae releases resurrected Cassandra, Roxanne and Hysteria.[32]

HysteriaEdit

Resurrected warriors instantly cut down everyone en masse.[33]

While her comrades fight Cassandra and Roxanne, Miria fights Hysteria. Miria discovers that Hysteria uses a technique similar to Phantom. But where Miria gains distance from attacks, leaving behind afterimages, Hysteria makes passing attacks, her afterimage flowing through target.[34]

"Old" PhantomEdit

Miria reverts back to old Phantom, plus partial awakening.[35]

Miria uses the original Phantom, barely surviving each strike from Hysteria. Finally, Miria increases her baseline Yoma power level to the Phantom's burst level, then jumps it from there.[36]

"Unflowing" HysteriaEdit

Miria can now strike Hysteria, even though she also sustains wounds. Hysteria is appalled at this crude technique.[37]

Miria's trapEdit

Despite Cassandra's awakening, Hysteria continues the fight with Miria—she cuts of Miria's arm. Miria succeeds in impaling Hysteria, at the cost of losing her other arm.[38]

Unknown to Hysteria, Miria spots a lost sword on the battlefield. Miria throws her body over it—hiding it—then waits for Hysteria.

When Hysteria comes to deliver the coup de grace, Miria clutches the sword hilt in her teeth and runs Hysteria through the neck. Hysteria collapses.[39]

TurnaboutEdit

As Miria evacuates another wounded warrior, she flees then confronts an awakened Hysteria, a Dada-like juxtaposition of harpy ship's figurehead, bristling with Cubist sabres and spider legs.[40] Hysteria cannot swallow, due to the sword in her throat.[41]

Miria rejects Hysteria's offer to let Miria go free if Miria removes the sword. Hysteria dodges Miria's attack. Mira further awakens, but is pulled down to earth by Anastasia's hair. The Ghosts, Anastasia's hunt and Dietrich have arrived.[42]

ComradesEdit

Cynthia calms Miria's runaway Yoma power, while Yuma regenerate Miria's injuries.[43] Meantime, Deneve and the Ghosts rescue the two warriors impaled on Hysteria's limbs.[44]

RescueEdit

Six warriors attack—Deneve, Anastasia, Dietrich, Nike, Helen and Tabitha. They use Anastasia's Winged Technique to stay aloft, highwire style.[45]

Hysteria evades Helen's Flexible Limb Stretching-Drill Sword attack, but fails to spot Dietrich and Nike, who cut free the captives. Anastasia and Helen catch the plunging warriors.[46]

Yoma Energy hidden, Tabitha succeeds in approaching Hysteria, then clipping her wings. But when the others close in, Hysteria instantly retreats to earth. The warriors are left crossing each other's swords.[47]

CounterattackEdit

Suddenly, Hysteria flies skyward, destroying Deneve's left arm, then Nike's right.[48] High above the suspended warriors, Hysteria fires something—it carves out the side of Dietrich's abdomen. Only Anastasia, Helen and Tabitha remain uninjured.[49]

Hysteria's secretEdit

As Hysteria fires her tethered blades, Miria analyzes the situation.

On the ground, Hysteria's sudden turns and stops are due to leg traction, similar to the great claw Clare used to control her speed in Pieta.[50] When aloft, Hysteria's blades, once anchored, allow her to suddenly change direction, horizontally or down.[51]

Deneve persuades Miria not to awaken, but to fight and die as a human.[52]

Deneve shows Miria how to use Anastasia's hair by injecting one's Yoma Energy to adjust the strength. Midair, Miria devise a plan.[53] She has Anastasia weave together several hair strands, in which all eight warriors begin to inject Yoma power.[54]

Deneve and the Ghosts watch as Miria draws Hysteria into the maelstrom between Cassandra and Roxanne.[55]

MoltingEdit

Cassandra continues eating as she combats Roxanne.[56] Using Flexible Limb Stretching, Helen again loosens the anchoring blades, unbalancing Hysteria's movement.[57] Suddenly, Hysteria sheds her pupal shell, molting into a mosquito-like form.[58]

BarrageEdit

Despite the proximity of the Hysteria-Miria dual, Cassandra and Roxanne fight on, oblivious to the other combat. Roxanne launches her Faulds-like blades at Cassandra.[59]

Miria's trap IIEdit

No longer needing her blades to control her direction, Hysteria becomes even faster than before.[60]

Ground zeroEdit

Miria is losing the fight, being wounded repeatedly by Hysteria. But Miria doggedly lures Hysteria into position. Nearby, Cassandra dares Roxanne to use up her blades. Just before Roxanne launches her final volley to finish off Cassandra, Miria touches on Anastasia's cord of hair,[61] then launches herself at hyper-speed past Hysteria, fleeing ground zero.[62]

TargetEdit

Hysteria, distracted in her pursuit of Miria, is hit by a blade midair, then bit by a hydra-tentacle from Cassandra, who mistook Hysteria as Roxanne.[63]

To die againEdit

The shattered remains of Hysteria barely clings to life. Her soliloquy describes two warriors that fought her on Rockwell Hill—warrior No. 4, Rosemary. And a mysterious, smiling warrior, resembling Teresa, a new single-digit that is never named. The smiling warrior's attack weakened Hysteria, allowing No. 4 to deliver the coup de grace.[64]

As Hysteria remembers the face of the smiling warrior, the remaining Yoma Energy inside Hysteria takes over her mind. Hysteria begins speaking like Priscilla, accusing the unnamed warrior of being a murderer. Finally, the Yoma Energy takes the shape of Priscilla.[65]

Miria bounces backs from the shock. Deneve and Helen, also recognizing Priscilla, attack the image, but it is only an apparition, which dissipates. Hysteria is dead.[66]

Executive chamberEdit
DesertedEdit

The warriors find it deserted.[67] In flashback, Raki says personnel fled Headquarters when Cassandra, Roxanne and Hysteria awakened.[68]

Miria orders Deneve and Helen to search the premises. And that any personnel found are to be killed.[69]

Secret roomEdit

But Miria's orders are a ploy to distract her comrades as Miria relocates a pilastered portal. Miria forces open a wall panel, leading to a downstairs chamber, where two specimens of the Dragons' Descendents are chained. Tubes attached to their bodies provide life-support.[70]

LimtEdit

Limt appears. For unexplained reasons, he has stayed behind.

He gives the real name of the Dragons' Descendents—the アサラカム[71] (Asarakamu). He explains that they are a hermaphrodite people, who once awaken, remain in their dragon form. And can live up to 200 years. And their tissue, when combined, provide the source material used for implants in humans, who develop into Yoma.

The smaller, humanoid specimen, when awakened, would become like the larger, dragon-like specimen.[72]

Miria admits being inside the chamber nine years ago, then realizing the source of the Yoma. Miria notes that the Organization violated their own rule about never killing humans, as they turned humans into Yoma, then ordered their warriors to kill these former humans. She beheads Limt, then cuts the life-support tubes of the specimens, which instantly decay.[73]

End of OrganizationEdit

As the Ghosts regenerate the wounded on the battlefield, Miria announces the death of Limt.[74]

CassandraEdit

Miria's new planEdit

After Deneve relates the events in Lautrec,[75] Miria now understands Clare's situation.[76]

She realizes that Clare is trapped with very person that appeared as a phantasm as Hysteria died. And the strange voice of the dying Hysteria was actually that of Clare's enemy. Further, when Cassandra spoke, though her words were not audible, her mouth moved the same way.

She speculates that Cassandra, reanimated by this person's Yoma energy, is also under this person's control, and is travelling to Rabona to free this same person.[77]

Helen wants to stop Cassandra, but Miria decides othewise. She envisions freeing both Clare and Priscilla before Cassandra's arrival. Miria is counting on Cassandra breaking free of Priscilla's mental influence, then fighting Priscilla.[78]

Return to Holy CityEdit

Using Raki's plan to return by boat, the Ghosts arrive in Rabona before Cassandra. The Ghosts meet Awakened beings in the hills.

Inside the deserted city, the Ghosts are greeted by a tearful Clarice, then Galatea, Galk and Sid. When Miria asks what happened, Galatea leads the Ghosts to the outskirts of town.[79]

The awakened form of the unknown Priscilla is half-emerged from the cocoon. Deneve confirms this is the Awakened that she saw in Lautrec.[80]
