Cold openEdit

From the cavern interior, Miria, Jean, Deneve, Helen and Clare can sense the scouts of the Northern Army. The bearded scout has awakened into a humanoid from with dreadlock-like tentacles. He launches tentacles into Pieta.[7]

First scoutEdit


The tentacles grapple and anchor themselves into buildings, which Dreadlock uses to reel himself into the plaza. There he greets and attacks the surprised villagers. A tentacle captures a young girl. But Miria cuts the girl free.[8]

Miria marching orders: Team Miria will hold down Dreadlock. Team Flora is to take the scout on the right roof, while Team Jean takes the scout on the left tower. Teams Undine and Veronica are to stand by.[9]

The two unawakened scouts note that despite their surprise attack, Miria is unusually calm. This is credited to her probable experience in fighting awakened beings.[10]

Team MiriaEdit

As the warriors attack Dreadlock, he counterattacks with tentacles. Miria cuts them away, clearing a path for Queenie and Tabitha. Yuma stands by with her sword.[11]

Second scoutEdit

Team FloraEdit

They attack the still unawakened scout on the roof. The scout's technique resembles that of Galatea's, but of greater power. He causes Flora's Windcutter to miss, then forces Carla to attack Flora.[12]

Scene 052a
Carla out of control

Out of controlEdit

Clare realizes what is happening and kicks Carla away. The scout then seizes control of Flora, Lily, Wendy and Clare, dropping them to their knees on the roof. As Carla is about to execute everyone, Clare asks Ilena's arm for help. The arm, independent of Clare's volition, shatters the roof with Quicksword, toppling everyone to the floor below.[13]

Amid the confusion, Flora finally strikes back. But the scout escapes leaving behind his shredded clothes and morphs into the armadillo-like awakened.[14]

Third scoutEdit

Team JeanEdit

The third scout awakens into a huge mosquito-like form. Jean is the last team member standing, her comrades lying in the snow unconscious. The Insectile ridicules Jean's leadership skills.[15]

Team VeronicaEdit

But Team Veronica team rescues Team Jean. Helen uses her extensible arm to distract Insectile, while Veronica attacks him from behind.[16]

Team UndineEdit

They reinforce Team Flora, now in disarray.[17]
