Lem cries as he talks to "Ilyusha", telling him that the icy prison is a "paradise" made for his sake. Teito and Ouka are still trying to escape, only for Lem to tell them that their level of power cannot destroy his "paradise". Teito makes one more attempt to purify Lem's soul, and then Frau, Capella and Burupya arrive.
Frau introduces himself, and Teito explains that Frau is his teacher. Upon hearing this, Ouka becomes excited, and Kururu advises Frau and Teito to not be offended by Ouka's "peculiarities". Teito tells Frau about the Wars (Lem), and Frau remarks that "the smell of darkness is thick". A moment later, Frau hears a tinkling sound, and shouts that his body is being frozen, asking the others to warm him up. They all start to panic and shout at each other. Ouka wildly asks Teito if Frau is a pervert, to which Teito has no response.
When they have all calmed down, they notice that the traces of the Wars continue further on, and that Lem's physical appearance has become that of a child after his soul was purified. Lem warns them not to come any closer to his "treasure", which, upon closer inspection, Teito realises is Labrador, frozen and devoured by a monstrous plant. Teito then starts to see a flashback of Labrador's past, showing how Lem succumbed to the temptation of the Flower of Eden for the sake of curing his sister Lirin, and how Labrador died as a result of using the Flower of Eden.
