Cold openEdit

Deneve, Helen and Clare watch the rods awaken into feline awakened beings, similar to Luciela's awakened form. The "Hellcats" now attack.[6]


Tentacle attackEdit

When a Hellcat attacks Helen, Clare cuts off its arm. But from the stump shoot out tentacles, which Clare and Helen narrowly avoid.[7]

Thrown swordEdit

Deneve jumps on the back of its neck and uses Undine's old method of pushing one sword down with another. But from the opening wound, tiny rods shoot into Deneve's sword arm. The rods are parasitic—they absorb the life of any living thing they touch.[8]

As her arm awaken with rods, Deneve tears off her arm. Then using a thrown sword, she hurls her sword, with the attached arm, into the Hellcat's head.[9]

Drill SwordEdit

Helen attack the Hellcat's head with Drill Sword. But the headless creature pins down Helen. The neck stump shoots a barrage of rod—but Clare ricochets them back into the Hellcat.[10]

Hellcats surround the warriors, in a replay of the last stand at Pieta.[11]


Riful drags Dauf from Alicia and Beth. The Abyss Feeders ambush her. Riful's tries to mince them with her tentacles. Suddenly, Alicia's awakened form attacks the Feeders. The wayward attacks confuse Riful.[12]


Elsewhere, a rod has penetrated Beth. Both the rod and Beth merge and awaken together into a new entity.[13]
