At the Nelpha fortress, Ryner and Ferris find nothing but a box of tax evasion papers. Both Sui Orla and Kuu Orla first believed that the box contained treasure, but they are dismayed as well. Milk tries to pursue Ryner away from Ferris inside a forest, but she is easily defeated and tied up. Ryner finds a hero relic in the form of a blade buried underground, using it to prevent the Nelpha army from capturing Milk. However, in the midst of confusion, the blade transforms into a dragon and chases the army away across the countryside. When Milk nearly gives up the hope of carrying out her duty, Luke Stokkart reminds her of the reason why she became the leader of her taboo hunter squad.
