Cold openEdit

In the rain, Galk and Sid look on amazed as Clare and Agatha challenged each other. Agatha has already lost one leg. Clare announces the Ghosts' intent to drop Agatha to the ground.[7]

Round III continuesEdit

The Ghosts proceed to destroy the remaining seven legs of Agatha. The crab-like form collapses into the street.[8]

A Ghost cuts free Galatea, pinned to a wall. The Ghost tears off her cloak and reveals herself as Miria.[9]

Tabitha tells the Ghosts where to strike, as she senses Agatha moving inside the false body, the vital core evading the sword blades.

Agatha abandons the crab awakened form and shapeshifts into a mummy-like being. This false body in turn is whittled down again, forcing Agatha to escape in her true form.[10]

She takes Galatea hostage. Clare confronts Agatha.[11]

End of battleEdit

Galatea suggests Clare use Quicksword as she did in the Witch's Maw. Clare takes the hint and kills Agatha.[12]
