戦士の亡霊 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."
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.
During tavern party, Sid tells Clare that Raki was in town looking for her. Galk reassures Clare that she and Raki must meet again.
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.
Later, Tabitha senses Alicia and Beth speeding westward. Miria suspects their target is Riful. Dietrich confirms her suspicions. With Alicia-Beth preoccupied, Organization's main defense is gone.
Rafutera uses Yoma power harmonization to entrain Miria's mind, enabling other warriors to cut down Miria. 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.
Later, as Rebellion starts, Miria reappears to lead rebels.
Resurrected warriors instantly cut down everyone en masse.
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.
Miria reverts back to old Phantom, plus partial awakening.
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.
Miria can now strike Hysteria, even though she also sustains wounds. Hysteria is appalled at this crude technique.
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.
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.
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. Hysteria cannot swallow, due to the sword in her throat.
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.
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.
Suddenly, Hysteria flies skyward, destroying Deneve's left arm, then Nike's right. High above the suspended warriors, Hysteria fires something—it carves out the side of Dietrich's abdomen. Only Anastasia, Helen and Tabitha remain uninjured.
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. When aloft, Hysteria's blades, once anchored, allow her to suddenly change direction, horizontally or down.
Deneve persuades Miria not to awaken, but to fight and die as a human.
Deneve shows Miria how to use Anastasia's hair by injecting one's Yoma Energy to adjust the strength. Midair, Miria devise a plan. She has Anastasia weave together several hair strands, in which all eight warriors begin to inject Yoma power.
Cassandra continues eating as she combats Roxanne. Using Flexible Limb Stretching, Helen again loosens the anchoring blades, unbalancing Hysteria's movement. Suddenly, Hysteria sheds her pupal shell, molting into a mosquito-like form.
Miria's trap IIEdit
No longer needing her blades to control her direction, Hysteria becomes even faster than before.
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, then launches herself at hyper-speed past Hysteria, fleeing ground zero.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Miria orders Deneve and Helen to search the premises. And that any personnel found are to be killed.
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.
Limt appears. For unexplained reasons, he has stayed behind.
He gives the real name of the Dragons' Descendents—the アサラカム (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.
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.
End of OrganizationEdit
As the Ghosts regenerate the wounded on the battlefield, Miria announces the death of Limt.
Miria's new planEdit
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.
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.
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.
