Charging aheadEdit

He shoots tentacles into the village. Tentacles anchored, he catapults himself hundreds of meters. He lands downtown and attacks the villagers. One of his tentacle captures a young girl. But Miria cuts the girl free.

Miria orders: her team attacks Dreadlock. Team Flora attacks the one on the roof. Team Jean the one on the tower. Teams Undine and Veronica stand by.[3]

The Battle Group confronts the three scouts, Dreadlock in front, the blindfolded scout atop a tower, the monk sitting on a roof.[4] Miria cuts away the tentacles, clearing a path for Queenie and Tabitha to attack. Yuma stands by with her sword.[5]

Power of a No. 6Edit

After the defeat of Armadillo and Insectile, Miria decapitates Dreadlock. The other teams rush to Miria's aid, only to find the fighting over.[6]

After the battle, Tabitha carries Yuma, who lost her arm.[7]
