Chiffon Fairchild III
Warriors of Valhalla I
As the sister's battle continues, Lucy berates Chiffon for her actions, for having hindered Gengo's will as well as the Chevalier's ability to fight the Nova. Chiffon quickly begins using Illusion Turn to outmaneuver Lucy, but the latter switches tactics to compensate. Lucy launches an attack at Aureriel, forcing Chiffon to take the hit instead. As her sister kneels wounded, Lucy takes the opportunity to say that she cannot comprehend the reason for Chiffon's actions. The wayward Legendary Pandora replies that Aureriel is her friend and that no harm shall come to her. Angered, Lucy derides Chiffon's actions and states that their only purpose is to become functioning Pandora. She declares that their father will never permit such foolish emotions.
Unexpectedly, the arguing sisters are interrupted by Aureriel, who confidently states that Gengo desired for his daughters to discover emotion. She explains that by having emotions and understanding the weak, one can gain great strength. Aureriel firmly believes that their father feels the same way. As she finishes, Aureriel is shot through the chest by a Chevalier sniper, much to Lucy and Chiffon's shock. The latter runs to her fallen friend and begs her not to die. Aureriel says that she can finally rest in peace, but Chiffon tearfully exclaims that she can still be saved, if they can get to her father in time. Aureriel informs Chiffon that accepting such things is simply part of being human and reminds her to never lose her smile. She encourages Chiffon to take her kindness and protect mankind before passing away. Devastated, Chiffon cries in anguish.
