History[]

Yoma nest[]

Two warriors—Sophia (No. 3) and Noel (No. 4)—meet in a Yoma nest, a village devoid of all human life.[9]

As they suppress the Yoma, they argue who should be No. 3. Noel compares Sophia's strength-based technique to a gorilla's, while Sophia compare's Noel's agile-based technique to a monkey's. Noel challenges Sophia to a fight. Later, Noel becomes part of a mission to purge Teresa.[10]

High Fluid Movement in action

Target[]

Despite higher agility, Noel is defeated by Teresa (A in Agile).[11] Unclear if Detailed Yoma Energy Sensing or Versatility is responsible.[12]

Noel leaps from the street and strikes through the second-story window. But Teresa grabs Clare and jumps out the next window.[13]

Plateau[]

Priscilla becomes into one-horned, winged Awakened. The purge team attacks, Noel cutting off Priscilla's arm. But Noel is killed by awakened Priscilla (SSS+ in Agile),[14] despite cutting off Priscilla's arm.[15]

After 7-year timeskip, Clare reminisces how Noel's agility enabled her to cut off Priscilla's arm.[16]
