Cold openEdit

Nighttime. The cathedral staff have a surprise meeting. Fathers Pario and Serene enter the great hall.

The locale puzzles them as the hall is empty and isolated. But as the doors open, they see the hall lined with guards.[7]

Everyone a suspectEdit

Father RodoEdit

Father Vincent calls the cathedral staff to order. He describes the dire situation with the Yoma. But since all now present were also present inside the building during the murders, everyone is now a suspect.[8]

Scene 008a
The suspects

Father Rodo, assistant to Bishop Kamuri, takes umbrage at Vincent's actions.


Clare, not fully recovered from her injuries, exams each suspect, trying to find the Voracious Eater. The plan is once she finds the Yoma, the soldiers spear the two together.[9]

Rodo is even more outraged. But Clare exams him and works her way through the entire staff. Though everyone has the Yoma scent, none have the aura.[10]

Finally, she exams Kamuri and even Vincent. But to no avail. Yet logically, the Yoma must be hiding somewhere in the cathedral.[11]


The situation turns ugly as Rodo denounces Vincent.[12]

Clare finally reaches the last possibility. If Yoma can impersonate the living, what if one impersonates the dead?[13]


In the baptismal hall, Raki paces about. He sits on the edge of a coffin, but falls atop the mummy. Raki scrambles out, but he is unaware that the "mummy" is rising from the coffin. Meanwhile, Clare races downstairs to the baptismal hall.[14]

Additional detailsEdit


  • The village elder of Musha resembles Bishop Kamuri, but is not blind[15]
  • Bishop Kamuri also resembles the village elder of Angel Densetsu[16]
