Confronted by the mysterious soldier, Teito Klein lashes out and breaks the man's neck. As the civilians rush to the man's help, the soldier snaps his neck back into place and then sprouts a single Kor wing. Ayanami reveals himself to be controlling the soldier.
The civilians scatter, and Teito attacks his pursuer. However, the soldier fires at Capella- with Teito barely managing to save him and injures his (Teito's) arm. The soldier then destroys a portion of the bridge they stand on. Teito prepares to attack, but the soldier apprehends him and tries to read Teito's sealed memories. The symbol of Vertrag and a warning: "no person whatsoever is allowed to touch these memories" appears, and the seal placed on Teito's memories destroys the soldier's arm. Ayanami is furious that Vertrag is preventing him from seeing Teito's past, but before the soldier can react, Frau appears behind him and stabs him through the abdomen with his scythe. As the one-winged Kor dies, he vows to obtain Pandora's Box.
Teito begins to panic- as he knows Ayanami is watching him and he is terrified Capella will be killed. Frau quickly carries him to safety, chastising him for leaving.
Meanwhile, Ayanami overlooks the Barsburg Church, and is frustrated Teito is still uncorrupted. Hyuuga questions Teito's royal blood, and Ayanami explains the "black history of the Raggs Kingdom": the death of Wahrheit Tiashe Raggs, and assures Hyuuga the possessor of the Eye of Mikhail is the genuine Prince. Ayanami is certain that Teito's memories will awaken eventually, and says until then he prays for: "God's demise".
