In Glacies, Fam Fan Fan, Giselle Collette and Millia are living in a house provided by Dyan. Their Vespa is damaged. Millia speaks Dyan's language, and interprets as Dyan says that she owes them a debt for saving her pilots during a previous battle.
Ades plans an invasion of Glacies. Luscinia Hāfez instructs provincial fleets to lead the battle, with Chaos at the vanguard. Luscinia then speaks with Liliana, who says that she will do what is demanded of her but still hasn't forgiven him.
Dyan provides Fam, Giselle, and Millia with tools to repair their Vespa. Once they've finished repairing it, Dyan takes them to some hotsprings. Fam tells Dyan her plan to hold another Grand Race, and Dyan says that the assassination of Farahnāz Augusta at the last Grand Race is what led Glacies to become isolationist.
Before leaving, Fam takes Dyan for a ride in her Vespa. Afterwards, Dyan departs in a Rocket Fighter.
As Fam and the others head out to try and find the Silvius, they encounter the incoming Ades invasion fleets.
