Escorted by the Platinum Knights, Sorey and friends arrive at the residence of Doran, ruler of the Rolance Empire. Doran recounts to Sorey the legend passed down through the imperial family, about the Malevolence in the world and the “beginning of calamities.” Furthermore, he gives Sorey the disturbing news that Alisha of Hyland seems to have been put house arrest. Sorey is shocked, but decides that the Malevolence must be stopped as soon as possible and heads for Pendrago. Meanwhile, Rose who has learned from Sorey that the Malevolence is the cause of the disasters in the world, asks Dezel of a way to see this Malevolence. Then she goes to Sorey with a certain proposal for negotiation.
