|Featured Character||Lucy Renault|
The Chevalier are deployed to the site of the 12th Nova Clash, but they can only fight at limited strength so as regress into Nova Form. The Valkyries face on the Nova in a losing battle, leading Lucy Renault to somehow kill it with a single blow. The Nova commander has the other dummy Novas break up into hundreds more saurian creatures to join the fray. Sister Margaret confronts Gengo over his actions where she deduces that he has essentially allowed this clash to happen because he did not try to stop Seiga Heavy Industries from their scheme to try to overthrow him, which resulted in catastrophic consequences. Back on the battlefield, Roxanne Elipton had cleanly defeated Arnett McMillan but she and Charles are soon confronted by the saurian Nova. Holding back to maintain her sanity, Roxanne battles the beasts with her Plasma Textures and manages to harm them, but they eventually restrain her. Roxanne orders Charles to take Arnett to safety and she does, promising to return later. Just after Charles leaves, the Nova Commander approaches the world's strongest third-year Pandora. Soon after, Charles drops Arnett attacked by more Nova. Oddly enough as well, strongest Chevalier Su-Na Lee is not at the site of the Nova Clash. Rather she drives her way to one of Gengo's old summer homes and enters the basement that contains five pods, two of which are already open.
Arnett eventually awakens and wills herself out of Nova Form when she sees Charles Bonaparte fighting three Nova to protect her. Charles's remaining arm is eaten by the Nova and another places her body in its mouth. Arnett refuses to flee and deploys her Volt Weapon to attack the Nova as many times as she can. However, she is eventually restrained by a Freezing field, but she and Charles are saved by the Transcendent Pandora Satellizer L. Bridget and Rana Linchen with Kazuya's help. Lucy tells the Valkyries to retreat, saying that she is a True Pandora and that the saurian Nova are evil "sisters" reacting to those who have transcended. Meanwhile, Ticy Phenyl continues to struggle with Chiffon’s image, trying to run away from everything, also having abandoned Abel. She eventually spots one of her classmates who Limiter had been killed. Ticy musters the courage to save her but she is attacked by the Nova. Ticy is too frightened to move, but before she is killed, Elizabeth Mably and André Françoise arrive to help. Elizabeth's presence gives Ticy the confidence to stand up again, recalling Chiffon's words that she believed Elizabeth to be the future of all Pandora even if she did not have the strength of a monster. Ticyjoins Elizabeth and Andre in battle and is knocked down. Refusing to give up, Ticy impresses the visage of Chiffon who is revealed to be the true spirit of Ticy's best friend. As a final farewell gift, Chiffon gifts Ticy the power of transcendence, which allows Ticy to destroy the saurian Nova.
