Charging ahead[]

Three men approach Pieta—scouts for the Northern Army. The blind-folded scout senses the presence of the Organization battle group—24 Claymore warriors. The bearded scout disobeys orders and attacks ahead of the army. He awakens into the Dreadlock awakened.[3]

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.[4]

The battle group confronts the three scouts, Dreadlock in front, the blindfolded scout atop a tower, the monk sitting on a roof.[5]

Team Jean[]

The third scout awakens into an insect form. Team Jean is decimated, all but Jean lying wounded. Jean is the last team member standing.[6]

Team Veronica[]

Team Jean is rescued by Team Veronica. Veronica and Cynthia act as decoys.[7] Helen immobilizes Insectile's legs, enabling Jean to use Drill Sword.

Veronica and Cynthia chop up Insectile's legless torso.[8]

Warriors fight Insectile

Power of a No. 6[]

After defeat of Armadillo and Insectile, Miria decapitates Dreadlock. The other teams rush to Miria's aid, only to find the fighting over.[9]

After the engagement, Tabitha carries Yuma, who lost her arm.[10]
