A request for Yoma suppression came from neighboring towns who had now become feeding places.[2]


Two warriors—Sophia (No. 3) and Noel (No. 4)—meet in an Yoma nest, an unnamed town devoid of all human life.[3] As they kill Yoma, they argue who should be No. 3.

Noel compares Sophia's strength-based technique to a gorilla's, while Sophia compare's Noel's agile-based technique to a monkey's. Noel challenges Sophia to a fight.[4]


But before they can begin, Ilena stops the fight.[5] Ilena's Quicksword is so quick, Sophia and Noel cannot even see Ilena unsheathes and kill two Yoma attacking Ilena as she approaches the warriors.[6]

Ilena says their assignment is to kill Teresa. Sophia and Noel think Ilena is in charge, but she tells them that she is no longer No. 2.[7]


The three see the new No. 2, Priscilla, stumble out of an alleyway, then fall to her knees, exhausted, before an alleyway. Noel angrily challenges Priscilla to a fight, but then looks in horror at the entire alley strewn with Yoma body parts.[8]


Accoridng to "Yoma War Record I," the four single-digit warriors made ​​a clean sweep of the town.[9]
