Cold openEdit

PriscillaCassandra uses the Dusteater technique to counterattack and destroys most of Octavia's party. The awakened who appears as a young girl is herself is beheaded. Round II of the engagement ends in defeat for Octavia's Party.[5]

Round IIIEdit


At a safe distance, the Ghosts watch the mayhem. Helen acknowledges that Miria ordered a retreat in time. Miria already knew the form of the oncoming attack and credits Audrey for intelligence on Cassandra's technique.

Helen is concerned about Cassandra changing into Priscilla. When Clare begins to release Yoma energy in response to Priscilla's “presence,” Miria warns Clare to calm down—the transformation is not yet complete.[6]

That girl's nameEdit

Octavia and her remaining comrade are dismayed at the failure of their first attack. Helen thinks only two members of Octavia's party have survived. But Chronos corrects Helen and throws the girl's still-living head near the Ghosts.[7]

Chronos concedes that he and Lars must join the fight. Lars names the "girl"—Europa—then describes her special technique—feigning death. As Europa fully awakens, Chronos reveals her moniker, “Europa the Lazy.” He points out that Europa is the only one present that is close in power to an Abyssal.[8]

Europa awakens into her starfish form and asks for human entrails in exchange for killing Cassandra, which Miria refuses. But Miria points out that if Europa does not stop Cassandra, Europa's food supply will be endangered anyway. Europa accepts this reasoning and attacks Cassandra.[9]

Both Chronos and Lars awaken, revealing similar biped forms. They join the assault on Priscilla–Cassandra, as do Miria and Clare. Octavia immobilizes Priscilla–Cassandra, preventing her from using the Dusteater. This allows Europa to use her version of the "trimmer" technique

Scene 137a

The three female and two male awakeneds weaken Priscilla–Cassandra enough for Clare to attack. She eviscerates the thorax of Cassandra's body, destroying the pilot torso of Priscilla.[10]

Dae and RubelEdit

On horseback in the hills, Dae and Rubel observe Priscilla and Riful's daughter fighting in the valley below. Dae says that despite the two being evenly matched in power output, Priscilla is destined to win, since the source of her power is without limit, while her opponent's power source is running out.[11]

In exchange for this information, Rubel rhetorically asks about the experiments using tissue of Yoma-infected family members as implants. Dae thinks these experiments were unsuccessful, but Rubel reveals that some of these warriors are able to half-awaken.[12]

Scene 137b

Additional detailsEdit


  • The furigana 女 (on'na) superscripted over 名 (na or name) in the original Jump SQ title indicates the "name" as being female
  • The female's age is to be interpreted within the context of the story
  • Europa's actual age is unknown, though she regards Cassandra as a "child"
