Finally arriving in Susukino, Shiroe, Naotsugu and Akatsuki enter the district weary of an ambush by the Brigandia Guild. Meanwhile, as Demikas becomes alerted of their arrival, Shiroe meets up with Serara and Nyanta at a secret location, and shockin... (more)gly discovers that his old friend Nyanta had been the one protecting Serara. Afterwards, Shiroe relays his plans with Naotsugu and Akatsuki and prepares to leave the district with Nyanta and Serara. After having waited patiently for them to exit the district, Shiroe, Nyanta and Serara are surrounded by the Brigandia guild and Shiroe taunts Demikas into a duel with Nyanta. As Nyanta's swashbuckler class inflicts severe status ailments on Demikas, he crudely calls in his guild members for aid however Naotsugu intercepts them with Anchor Howl. Eventually, Naotsugu and Nyanta's HP drops to dangerous levels and Shiroe has Serara heal them.
