Legacy of the Past
Rana Linchen begins to overwhelm Windy May Aoi, but she also begins to give in the call of her Stigmata that beckons her to destroy. Meanwhile, Cassandra Aoi fares against the five Pandora-Type Nova that she summoned. Cassandra defeats one of them, but she is seriously injured while protecting Kazuya Aoi and Satellizer L. Bridget.
Lucy Aoi watches in surprise as Rana manages to push Windy back, at the same time Teslad Aoi renews her assault on her younger sister. Lucy questions how a normal Pandora could stand on equal footing with a Legendary Pandora, while also noting that the Plasma Stigmata on Rana must be taking its toll on her physically. Ouka Tenjouin and Christine Evora cheer joyously for Rana, only for their joy to turn to horror when Rana declares that her Stigmata implore her to destroy her enemy.
Back at the plaza, Cassandra Aoi battles the Nova in a losing fight. Though she manages to behead one of the invaders, the others quickly surround and pummel her, severing both of her arms. Kazuya Aoi attempts to gain Satellizer L. Bridget's help in defending Cassandra, but the latter refuses and wishes to flee to safety. Kazuya spurns the idea and does not want to leave Cassandra behind. The two are quickly attacked by a duo of the Pandora-type Nova, but are protected by Cassandra at the last moment. Attacking in tandem, the Nova are able to overcome the Legendary Pandora's defences and she is slowly shredded by their offensive attack. As Kazuya looks on distraught, as Cassandra tells him to run away.
