|Featured Character||Amelia Evans|
At the Alaska Base, Satellizer, Rana, and Kazuya meet Pandora from the other academies including Roxanne Elipton, Charles Bonaparte and Julia Munberk, three of the highest ranked third-year student across all Genetics academies. The Pandora are welcomed by Scarlet Ohara, who is the head doctor of the Evolution Pandora (E-Pandora) Project, where ordinary girls who are implanted with Stigmata are trained to become Pandora. The regular Pandora participate in a series of duels with the E-Pandoras; in the third duel, Elizabeth Mably easily defeats Amelia Evans without using her Volt Weapon, but Amelia keeps trying until she cannot move anymore. Following the E-Pandora's poor results, the Chevalier presses Ohara to administer the MARK IV drug to the E-Pandora, which Elizabeth Mably finds sketchy believing that normal girls, from the start, are simply unable to become real Pandora. She questions the ethics of this human experimentation. Jina Purpleton volunteers as the first test subject; she has a successful demonstration, but her body breaks down and she turns into a Nova form.
