|Coming of the War Princess|
|Volume 29, Chapter 199|
The war princess answers her brother's call.
Gengo Aoi and Sister Margaret arrive at the inner most sanctum of the Ravensbourne Nucleotide, only to discover that their "trump card" has already awoken. From the cryo-pod steps a little girl with long blonde hair. Gengo addresses her as Arcadia and asks if she recognizes him. Ignoring the doctor, Arcadia begins to syphon soul energy from the air, surprising Gengo. Arcadia then proceeds to leap through the ceiling, appearing to briefly communicate with Maria, and rockets away from West Genetics. Left behind, Gengo deduces that Kazuya must have awakened his true potential and and called his sister to him. Margaret demands an explanation, afraid that Arcadia is as uncontrollable as the Legendary Pandora. Gengo calmly explains that there is not a single person on the planet that can control Arcadia. However, he notes that control is irrelevant, as Arcadia already understands her duty. Smiling up at the sky, Gengo remarks that the era now belongs to the young.
At the harbor, Isabella Lucas attempts to flee to safety only to be captured by Radox, who states that West Genetics has revolted against the Chevalier alongside Gengo Aoi. He requests information from Isabella, and gleefully states that he should thank Gengo as his actions have allowed Radox to regain his position as Commander-in-chief.
Back at Gengo's base, Kazuya uses his Freezing to engage Rana. He focuses the entirety of his field onto Rana alone, allowing him time to free her from the Nova's influence. A dazed Rana stumbles towards her friends, only to be attacked and mutilated by Teslad, much to Satellizer's horror. Teslad and Windy begin to gear up for another fight by draining the nearby Pandora of soul energy. Kazuya attempts to remind them that they are family, only to be interrupted by the arrival of Arcaida. Immediately, Satellizer begins to be crushed by Arcadia's presence, and wonders if she is a new kind of Nova.
- Radox Phantomheim has been reinstated as Commander of the Chevalier.
- Kazuya frees Rana from her Stigmata's influence.
- Rana Linchen's legs are severed by Teslad.
- Arcadia Aoi completely awakens and arrives at the pool.
