In the Dragon's Fangs, repairs continue on the Silvana.

In the Imperial Capital, Vincent Alzey is relieved of command of the Urbanus due to his loss of four Urbanus-class ships in the Dragon's Fangs. He is reassigned to serve under David Mad-thane in battle against the Disith that have occupied Norkia. The Emperor, believing that Alvis died when the Silvana was sunk and that the Key to Exile has been lost forever, prepares for war with the Guild.

Repairs on the Silvana are completed and the ship lifts off. Marius Bassianus detects the engine signature and realizes Alvis is still alive. He sends Sophia Forrester a letter asking her to take the throne of Anatoray.

Dio shows Claus and picture of his and Lavie's fathers with Alex Row and Euris. Claus confronts Alex, who tells him the truth. The vanship Claus and Lavie believed belonged to their fathers was his.
