Vasant's joint forces head fo Boreas, where the third and fourth fleets are waiting. Vasant has a meeting with Ōrang and Sorūsh in which Sorūsh criticizes her for bringing Sārā Augusta into the line of fire, saying she's using the Augusta as a human shield. After the meeting, Ōrang expresses hesitance to fire on Sārā's ship, but Sorūsh says the Augusta can be replaced if necessary.
Ōrang has a flashback to when he and Sorūsh were young. While Ōrang became a soldier because he had genuine faith in Farahnāz Augusta's ideals and vision for the future, Sorūsh just became one for the glory.

However, Ōrang cannot forget his loyalty to the Augusta, and opens fire on Sorūsh. The Senapati begins a suicide charge against Sārā's ship and is destroyed. Sārā cries over Sorūsh's death.
