Muozinel Invasion Arc is the forth story arc of Arc One from Madan no Ou to Vanadis. This arc focuses Muozinel Army's massive invasion towards Brune with 50,000 strong army. Despite outnumbered by an overwhelming enemy without help, courtesy of both Thenardier's and Ganelon's scheme, Tigre had to lead the Silver Meteor Army alone to fend off their massive foe without Elen, who returned to Zhcted in order assist her friend Sasha to defeat her fellow Vanadis, Elizaveta Fomina.
Muozinel Invasion on AgnesEdit
Ten days after Roland's death, Muozinel Army launches a massive invasion towards Brune via its south-western territory Agnes. With 3,000 Brune's boarder soldiers (who either being killed or forced to flee away) are overwhelmed by Muozinel Army's 20,000 troops, Agnes is fallen with more than 20 villages are deprived and looted while the villagers [Notes 1]are taken as prisoners for slavery.
In Thenardier Mansion, Thenardier is still agitated over Roland's death and learns Muozinel Army's atrocities in Agnes and it's now marching for Nemetacum[Notes 2]. Still blaming Tigre for ruining his plans for domination, from Seven Chains Assassins's demise and Mila's neutrality to Roland's defeat, Thenardier begins his preparations for his counterattack attack against the southern enemy: He will lead his 7,000 troops for Agnes to lure Muozinel Army towards him, while Steid will lead the remaining 13,000 to protect Nice while contain Ganelon's movement[Notes 3]. Steid further asks the Duke if Roland's death was resulted from Ganelon's secret conspiracy with Muozinel, to which Thenardier initially denies[Notes 4]but urges his adviser to stay alert towards his rival.
Meanwhile, Drekavac is investigating a dragon corpse that was retrieved from Molsheim Plains and discovers a bizarre wound, which looks different than a regular Vanadis's Veda. Intrigued, Drekavac asks Vodyanoy again for his help but this time he requests the Frog Demon to retrieve "Bow"[Notes 5] for him. Vodyanoy asks Drekavac if he needs the target to be killed but Drekavac instead wants Tigre to be captured alive. After Vodyanoy departs from the mansion, Drekavac begins to wonder the winner of the Brune's civil conflict.
2,000 Silver Meteor Army vs 20,000 Muozinel ArmyEdit
Tigre's Preparation for Repelling Muozinel ArmyEdit
In the Silver Meteor Army's camp, Tigre also learns Muozinel Army's invasion and plans to repel them as well. However, due to his limited military force and supplies, he had to conserve as much as possible since most Leitmeritz Army's soldiers (except Rurick) under Elen were pulled back for Leitmeritz to reinforce Legnica. Titta enters his camp to ease his worries by serving some meals before Tigre tells her to go for Territoire with Mashas and Bertrand. When the housemaid asks if he will return safely, Tigre promises that he will return safely. Whilst walking to the Commander Camp, both Tigre and Rurick are chatting about their upcoming battle but even with Rurick's reassurances, Tigre still worries their overwhelming odds by claiming that not everyone believe him even if he proposes his strategy, though Rurick remains supportive to the Alsace Earl.
In the meeting, Tigre informs everyone that he has decided to march for Agnes and repel their southern enemy, much to Mashas's worry as he asks Tigre the reason behind his resolve. Tigre simply answers that he will fight to ensure his survival while protecting his people around him, of which Hughes concludes that they also need to increase Territoire's defense while persuade more knights for their cause. When Mashas wonders if there is any reinforcement, Hughes denies as he claims that since they are labeled as "traitors" under Thenardier's and Ganelon's scheme, they are in crossroads between harsh criticism by many or exhausted themselves for Thenardier's benefit, of which both could ends up in a horrible defeat before the Silver Meteor Army could even reach Nemetacum. However despite the handicaps, Tigre remains optimistic as he suggests a plan to both Mashas and Hughes, which required a teamwork from anyone including 600 Brune soldiers. [Notes 6] Before going to Agnes, Tigre bid farewell to his allies (Bertrand, Titta, Mashas and Hughes)[Notes 7] and he is told to be wary in this battle.
Mysterious Girl named ReginEdit
Under Tigre's lead, the Silver Meteor Army of 1,700 march for Agnes without Elen and the Leitmeritz Army. Before the battle, Tigre first lead the army's scout team to navigate Agnes's valleys and, to their horrifying discovery, they witness Muozinel soldiers holding 2,000 captured Agnes residents as prisoners while marching down for Nemetacum. Aram suggests to strike the enemy and rescuing the prisoners, though Tigre declines because of the gust so he plan to ambush the enemies later. Before the scout team's return to the camp, Tigre suddenly see a girl who is pursued by several Muozinel soldiers and when she fell down and surrounded, Tigre snipes down the soldiers and successfully rescues the girl. When Tigre slowly approaches her, the girl remains hostile until Tigre tell her his name, given her a sense of security before finally collapses in Tigre's arms. Tigre tells Rurick and others to take her into their camp.
Silver Meteor Army vs Kashim Advance ArmyEdit
In late evening, Kashim receives a report from his scout about 200 enemy soldiers's presence at the hills and dispatches 3,000 men to pursue and decimate them. Despite the scout views the plan exaggerated, Kashim insists the command and reminds that their mission is to eliminate any enemy they find and assuming the main force is actually consists 2,000 soldiers. Under Tigre's strategy, 200 Silver Meteor Army soldiers manage to lure Kashim's 3, 000 soldiers into a valley where they confront "6,000" enemy soldiers from the cliff, though the actual numbers were less than that due to sun angle that provides illusion sight to confuse Kashim's soldiers.[Notes 8]  With Muozinel Army is demoralized and trapped in the valley and unable to retreat, Tigre commands a full assault onto their enemy and easily decimates them with ease, resulting the Silver Meteor Army's initial victory.
After their first battle, Gerard congratulates Tigre for his success while reports a war report. When Tigre informs that he will launch another two attacks before leaving Agnes, Gerard opposes Tigre's plan as he views repeating tactics would only speeding their demise, considering their manpower and Agnes's inhabitable environment. Tigre tries to reason with Gerard via a fable of the "Rabbit and Bear" [Notes 9], only to hear Gerard's sarcastic reply through the story's alternative ending, metaphorically the enemy will not fall the same trick in their next battle; additionally, Gerard also warns that because of their disadvantages of lack manpower and Agnes's inhabitable environment, the Silver Meteor Army might face its defeat against their massive foe. Rurick retaliate as he asks Gerard for better opinions, to which Gerard replies that it is his most humble opinion but later to both Tigre and Rurick as Tigre urges him not to bicker with his new ally .[Notes 10] Rurick then asks Tigre about the girl they saved who Tigre deems to be weaken by exhaustion and her only activities are drinking soup and sleeping in a camp. Nonetheless, he commands his army to take a rest for another ambush.
The defeat of his 3,000 soldiers frustrates Kashim but remains confident that his army remain superior. The next day, Tigre launches another ambush towards Muozinel Army in the valley, reducing them gradually from 20.000 to 18.000 soldiers. First Tigre used ambush by disguising as Muozinel Soldiers and wreak havoc among Muozinel ranks then withdraws after he deemed it was enough. To counter Tigre's ambush, Kashim commands his executioner to bring ten slaves-both men and women alike [Notes 11] -and beheading them to provoke Tigre and his army. [Notes 11] 
In response to the slaves' execution, Tigre and 600 Brune soldiers confront Muozinel Army, much to Kashim's disappointment as he realizes that an archer, a belittlement subject by Brune's nobles and citizens alike, is the leader of the army. To Kashim's and his army's surprise however, Rurick leads Zhcted Army [Notes 12] to launch an ambush from the cliff. Whilst attempting to recuperate the army's morale, Kashim witnesses Tigre fires his arrows at him from afar, fatally shoot to his forehead and resulting his instant death. . With Rurick announcement of Kashim's death, Muozinel Army becomes disoriented and nearly half of the soldiers are routed by the Silver Meteor Army. Tigre further commands Rurick to lead a pursue unit to find any surviving Muozinel soldiers for more information about their invasion.
Unexpected Help from LudmilaEdit
Even after being rescued by the Silver Meteor Army, one of Agnes prisoners berates Tigre for unable to save his fellow prisoners in time. However, just as Gerard is furious for his "ungratefulness", Tigre stops Gerard while apologizes to the man for unable to prevent the tragedy while commands his men to provide food and clothes for the freed slaves. He also confronts a little girl, who thanks him for avenging her father by killing Kashim and his soldiers.[Notes 13] Tigre later expresses his gratitude to the girl for her compliments.
At night, the Silver Meteor Army decides to take a three-day rest after the battle whilst Gerard reports to Tigre their army casualties and the freed prisoners's condition[Notes 14] , which greatly concerns Tigre. To ensure both his army's and rescued slaves' safety, Tigre decides to have Gerard to arrange their evacuation to Territoire for refuge. However, Rurick reports to both Tigre and Gerard a shocking news: Kashim's Army they faced was merely Muozinel Army's advance unit and the real army of 30,000 troops are marching towards them.[Notes 15] When Tigre is stunned to hear it, Gerard snaps the archer by asking him the next move. Even when Rurick disapproves Gerard's tone towards Tigre, Tigre instead listens to Gerard's opinion. [Notes 16] Gerard asks Tigre about other people's view about him, from a Brune archer who was captured as Zhcted's prisoner to a wanted rebel who fought against Brune's powerful aristocrats. Tigre simply answers that the people would considered him to pick a fight, prompting Gerard to laugh. Nonetheless, due to his army's exhaustion and the enemy army's overwhelming numbers, Tigre reluctantly orders in tighten the battle lines and a temporal retreat from Agnes along with 2,000 Agnes residents.
On the next evening, the Silver Meteor Army escorts freed 2,000 Agnes residents for Territoire but because of the soldiers' injuries and fatigue, the march is moving in a slow pace. Even worse, 3,000 to 4,000 Muozinel's soldiers are pursuing after the Silver Meteor Army from behind, forces Tigre to leave Rurick in handling the march while he leads his to stall their advance. Still, not even Tigre's archer unit's gallant efforts manage to stop Muozinel Army's persistent pursue until Mila and her 4,000 Olmutz soldiers arrive to save the day. With the help from an unexpected ally, the Silver Meteor Army safely retreat to their camp and while Muozinel Army soldiers also retreat and (momentarily) abandon their pursuit.
Alexandra Alshavin, the Living Legend of ZhctedEdit
At Legnica's Imperial Palace, Elen and Lim are escorted by the Imperial Palace's veteran servant to Sasha's room, and they are informed about the time-limit for their visit (half koku) to speak with Sasha due to her illness. Sasha welcomes both girls with a smile and apologizes to Elen for dragging her here, but Elen tells her not to worry by saying that she would arrive to help her anyway.[Notes 17] Putting the casual conversation, Elen asks Sasha about the situation, Sasha hesitantly answers the perpetrator's name: Elizaveta Fomina of Lebus. Hearing a familiar name prompting Elen's anger but she refrains herself under Lim and Sasha's advice to listen to the entire story.
According to Sasha, she and Liza were working together in subjugating the pirates near Zhcted's northern territory, but because of her absence due to her illness, Sasha sent her military and Liza brought her military. [Note: Due the enemy being pirates the war was not only fought with the army but also the navy] Consequently, Liza accused Legnica's military for leading the pirates towards her position and demanded a higher portion from the distribution of the spoils as compensation for her efforts, though the Legnica soldiers denied her allegation and Sasha herself couldn't find any evidence to support either side and Liza eventually broke off the discussions before reaching an agreement and attacked Legnica before the latter retreated to Boroszlo Plains.[Notes 18] While she wonders Liza's aim but urged by Sasha not to make rash judgement, Elen promises her friend that she will defeat her opponent for Sasha's sake. The girls then discuss Elen's involvement in Brune, where Lim blushes after being teased by Elen over Tigre's helping Lim after the bite from a venomous snake.[Notes 19] Astonishes over Elen's decision to aid Tigre, Sasha asks Elen if she like the archer that much, to which the Wind Vanadis suggests her to meet him in person and while attributes him as an interesting man despite his flaws, further garners Sasha's anticipation to meet him (Tigre) someday. The girls' chat however is interrupted by a servant who reminds Elen and Lim that their visit is over, prompts both Elen and Lim to bid their farewell to the Fire Vanadis and leave her bedroom. Afterward, Sasha turns her attention towards Bargren while remarks its persistence and decides to live on for Elen's and Bargren's sake.
Elen and Lim then stay in Legnica Imperial Palace's guest room for a day. Prior their preparations, Lim reports to Elen that Legnica will provide approximately 17,000 (14,000 from Legnica while 3,000 from the temple) soldiers to combat Liza's 4,000 soldiers. Suddenly, four men (one old servant and three soldiers) visit both girls and tell them that Sasha wish to meet Lim. While busy in her preparations, Elen tells Lim to visit Sasha. Under the Chamberlain's guidance, Lim reaches and enters Sasha's room.
Sasha requests Lim to protect Elen in her place, which surprises Lim as she replies that she has always been with Elen's side. In spite Lim's reassurances, Sasha still worries about Elen due to her opponent is Liza, whose bitter rivalry with Elen began since the past incidents: from a burned plague-infected village[Notes 20], Liza's father's execution[Notes 20], and a duel where Liza defeated by Elen . While Lim assumes Sasha (who also blamed Liza for her attack onto Legnica) did not yearn to support Elen, Sasha explains that because of her illness she is unable to stop the Vanadises' (Elen and Liza) feud and even if she did respect Elen's bravery, she fears her boldness would eventually cause unwanted consequences; furthermore, Sasha assets her skepticism towards Tigre because of his position as an outsider to Zhcted despite the girls' stories about him. As Lim becomes speechless after hearing Sasha's insecurities, Sasha further states that even a Vanadis such as herself is unable to predict Elen's rage and impatience whenever she confronts Liza, so she urges Lim to protect Elen. With her devotion to defend her friend from harm, Lim promises Sasha to protect Elen with anything she has, even if she had to sacrifice her life to achieve her objective.
Before Elen's departure from Legnica, she pays her last visit to Sasha by informing her (Sasha) that she will be back after defeating Liza. Sasha requests Elen not to stay in Legnica if she has any hesitations and advises her to focus her priority as foremost. Nevertheless, Elen laughs as she tells Sasha to take a rest while awaits for her victory over Liza.
Kureys Shahim Balamir, the Commander of the Main Muozinel Army Edit
In Muozinel Camp, Kureys Shahim Balamir receives a report about Zhcted Army's interception and an unlikely alliance between the Silver Meteor Army and Mila's Olmutz Army. [Notes 21] Intrigued over the sudden turns of event, Kureys request his messengers to deliver a message to Zhcted Army and his suggestion a truce with the Vanadis and forming an alliance to attack Brune. [Notes 22]In addition, he adds that if the Vanadis did accepts the invitation, he willing to even return for Muozinel empty handed before laugh any further.
Back at the Silver Meteor Army's camp, Mila scolds Tigre by telling him "Minus One" for not thanking her for the earlier rescue and even informs him that she could even spill her tea to him should he disrespects her during a negotiation. When Mila offers him 4,000 Olmutz Soldiers and Tigre immediately accepts the offer without thinking, she further scold hims "Minus two" for being too greedy and exposing his weakness of negotiation. Nevertheless, Mila discusses with Tigre regarding the previous battle in Tatra Mountains, where she reveals that she noticed the broken gate that was resulted from Tigre's assistance to Elen.[Notes 23]
Unable to defy such fact, Tigre tells Rurick to bring his Black Bow and shows it to Mila. While Mila examines the Black Bow and claims it as "unrefined", Tigre explains the Black Bow is his family's precious heirloom and urges her to be respectful to his family treasure. Nonetheless, Mila informs Tigre that the alliance would be different than Elen's and he had to listen to her if he wants to build an efficient army, which Tigre agrees. [Notes 24] As the result, the alliance between Silver Meteor Army and Olmutz Army is forged.
Later, Tigre meets Gerard who was waiting for him from outside the tent and, in sheer curiosity, sarcastically asks Tigre why the Vanadises such as Elen and Mila are willing to see him, to which Tigre simply replies that it is because of his virtuous nature. Gerard then informs Tigre about the girl Tigre rescued, whom he claims she fears even Tigre's subordinates. When Tigre asks if any soldiers did anything suspicious, Gerard denies and tells him that soldiers have treated the girl kindly with soup, only to receive the girl's hostility in return. Tigre takes a bowl of soup and snacks and decides to see the girl himself.[Notes 25] 
As Tigre enters the girls's camp, the girl finally stays calm and the two begins their dinner. [Notes 26] During their conversation, the girl tells Tigre her name as Regin and reveals that she knows him as Alsace Earl, much to Tigre's a shock and embarrassment. Their conversation is interrupted by Gerard who asks Tigre if he need some help, which Regin replies that she wants only a pail of hot water and towel. Gerard asked Tigre if the girl did any harm upon him but Tigre denies so. Whlie sarcastically complementing his "talents"[Notes 27] , Gerard gives a pail of water and towel as Tigre requested before he warns the archer not to cause any trouble.[Notes 21]
Back in the camp, both Tigre and Regin are enjoying their meal where Regin asks to drink his soup. While Tigre gives his soup to her, Regin tastes the soup as warm while remembering some nostalgia moments of her past, which arouses Tigre's curiosity as he begins to wonder her background. After their meal, Regin requests Tigre to wash her back much to Tigre's embarrassment. Yet, Tigre reluctantly helps her while try to stay focused in order to avoid possible seduction. After finishing Regin's bath, Tigre immediately going out from the camp while wondering what was Regin thinking. Anyways, Tigre maintains his focus for his next battle against Muozinel Army.
Battle of Boroszlo: Bitter Rivals' Hostile ReunionEdit
The following dawn, Leitmeritz-Legnica Coalition Army are marching for Boroszlo Plains and before the battle, Elen orders Lim to lead the Coalition Army's 2,000 troops against Lebus Army while she will duel against Liza alone, despite Lim's worries over Boroszlo Plains's geographical disadvantages and Elen's rage and impatience. Nevertheless, Lim relents and tells Elen to take care of herself. Meanwhile, Liza stares at the sky while lying on a horse saddle and mumbles about her eyes, though the latter being interrupted by a soldier who reports an arrival of Leitmeritz-Legnica Coalition Army. Anticipating Elen's arrival, Liza also orders her army to face the Coalition Army.Few minutes later, both armies confront each other in Boroszlo Plains where Liza tells Elen that she is happy to see her again, though Elen retorts that she doesn't recalled of giving her "permission" to call her casual name and orders her to apologize to Legnica soldiers, an order Liza refuses to comply and the battle between both armies quickly ensues.
While Lim leads the Leitmeritz-Legnica Coalition Army to combat Lebus Army, Elen and Liza fight in a duel where Elen is initially overpowered by Liza's unknown power. When Liza mocks Elen's insecurity, Elen instead asks Liza about her power and her reason to attack Legnica, but Liza digress Elen's questions and retorts back to Elen with sarcastic remarks[Notes 28]over her alliance with Zhcted's "enemy". Nevertheless, Elen warns Liza not to gloat her victory too early. Both Vanadises unleash their Veda against each other and during the collision, Liza is pushed back by the impact, resulting her defeat.
Surprisingly, Liza nonchalantly admits her defeat but Elen tells her that their duel is not over until Liza informs her two pieces of crucial information: Thenardier and Ganelon had already made their moves[Notes 29] and Muozinel Army began its invasion towards Brune via its southern boarders.[Notes 30] While Elen remains dubious about Liza's claims, Liza adds that she will declare a one-year truce between Lebus and Legnica and a renegotiation with Sasha in subjugating the pirates. Elen reluctantly accepts Liza's truce before adding one more condition: Liza must apologize to Sasha and immediately return her land. With Liza agrees on Elen's terms, the battle in Boroszlo Plains is over.
Ludmila's One Battle Plan Edit
Back in Agnes, Mila proposes "One Battle Plan" to beat Muozinel Army in just one battle, which initially confuses both Tigre and Rurick, much to Mila's dismay. When Rurick asks if they even win this battle, the Ice Vanadis replies that they need to win at any cost since the Silver Meteor Army suffered its extreme exhaustion from the previous battles. For this reason, Mila tells Tigre that she will buy Silver Meteor Army some time for reinforcement by trying to besiege the enemy and holding out the battle as long as they could. Whilst planning to initiate an initial plan, which is similar to the previous battle against Kashim and 20,000 Advance Army, Mila supposedly aiming the provisions but rather think otherwise due to high risk that Silver Meteor Army will be defeated before they managed to attack the enemy supply lines as she know the opponent is none other than the Red Beard of Muozinel himself.
Meanwhile, thanks to Kashim Army's intellect, Kureys split his army in seven parts to avoid ambush: If Silver Meteor Army attacks the middle of the convoy then the group ahead and the back will eradicate the ambush unit before returning to position.
Battle of Ormea: Muozinel's Last Confrontation to the Silver Meteor ArmyEdit
After several discussion with Tigre and the Silver Meteor Army generals, Ludmila begins to deploy 2.000 soldiers behind two hills while the configure of the battlefield is changed to a snowfall weather. To prevent ambush from the Silver Meteor Army's ambush attacks, Kureys split 40,000 troops into seven divisions to annihilate the Silver Meteor Army if they ever attempting to ambush on the middle of the convoy.
Prior the battle, Muozinel scouts navigates their enemies movements Kureys's order and according to their search, there is a small stronghold on the left hill which allegedly belongs to their enemy. Kureys commands the First to Fourth Division to besiege the "stronghold" where Silver Meteor Army suppresses them with arrows and rocks to prevent them for advancing further. Later, he commands the Fifth to Seventh division to pursue a fleeing "refugee", which is actually Rurick's unit. While the "refugee" manage to lure them away from the group, Mila and Tigre immediately annihilating the Fifth Division. When Rurick Unit witness their commanders attack their commanders attack, they quickly join the war along with Brune Soldiers, which means the actual refugees were at the small stronghold where only guarded by few soldiers. Regardless, Kureys continues to observe the battle behind the seventh division.
It is reveals two nights before the battle, Tigre visited the refugee camp and requested everyone to participate the battle. Due to their limited resources and inability to defend themselves, the refugees initially objected Tigre's proposal until one refugee, the one who berating Tigre earlier, accepted his proposal as he explained everyone that following Tigre's instructions, not only help them to survived the battle, but also save more peoples without suffering the same fate as theirs. Knowing than running away would put them in more danger, the refugees decided to put their faith upon Tigre.
Utilizing Mila's strategy, the Silver Meteor Army manage to break through the Sixth Division while pursuing the enemy commander, only to be lured and surrounded by both Sixth and Seventh Division instead. To make matters worse, Silver Meteor Army's 1,000 Brune soldiers (Flying Column unit) , who supposedly intercepting Muozinel Army's Sixth Division from behind, are fallen due to their extreme fatigue while being slaughtered by the Muozinel Army, leaving only a few hundreds to keep up. This unusual outcome frustrates Mila as she deems her tactic come close to drive off the Muozinel Army had they managed to catch up with Seventh Division. Surrounded, the Silver Meteor Army had to scatter into smaller groups and fight as many enemy as they could while surviving their relentless waves. While he watches his enemies' struggle from afar, Kureys is impressed over the Ice Vanadis's strategy while looking forward to capture her for Muozinel.[Notes 31]
Despite cornered by overwhelming enemy waves while facing exhaustion and supplies shortages, both Mila and Tigre continue to fight due to their principles: Mila's pride as Olmutz Vanadis and Tigre's mettle for his people. Just as they are on a verge of defeat for holding the battle lines too long, reinforcements [Notes 32]from Territoire make their timely arrival to repel their massive enemy. This unexpected outcome is beyond Kureys's expectations because he doesn't receive such information from his scouts but he remain calm as he remarks Tigre's and Mila's charisma that draws many allies for their aid. Seeing the prolonged battle will eventually destroy his army, Kureys orders a full scale retreat from Ormea Hills as he need further intelligence from his navy unit that was attacking Brune's southern port. As the result, 6,000 Muozinel soldiers were dead in the battle and total deaths from Muozinel Army reaches 16,000.
The next day, Kureys receives news about Thenardier Army's victory over his navy unit. Even he still has 34,000 troops remaining in his army, Kureys decides to make a full scale withdraw from Brune since he can't fight both armies in his army's current condition. [Notes 33]Besides, as long he did not suffers the defeat alone Kureys wouldn't mind to fight for another day. In Kureys's further remark, he claims that even after Roland's passing, Brune's dignity is still alive due to Tigre's performance in the battle despite outnumbered by his (Kureys) army. With Muozinel Army's full withdrawal, the battle in Ormea Plains is finally over.
Silvrash the Star ShooterEdit
After the war, Tigre is relieved to see his allies in well condition while watching Muozinel Army's retreat from Agnes. At the same time, he is summoned into a meeting with a Muozinel messenger who is sent by Kureys to deliver his compliments on Muozinel behalf. According to the messenger, Muozinel Army salutes Tigre for putting a worthy fight and become popular among Brune's noblemen and warriors; furthermore, while claiming Brune's mistake for condemning his archery skills, he continued to praise Tigre's skill that resembles Muozinel's own legendary archer named Silvrash. After the Muozinel messenger leave the camp, Mashas taps Tigre's shoulders while congratulates him for the victory.
As Mila tells Tigre that her army will prepare for their journey home, Tigre's body suddenly leaned next to her, pinned her onto the ground and quickly fell asleep, much to Mila's staggering shock. Regardless, Mila forgives Tigre's "rudeness" by looking at his sleeping face while remarks his hard work since their battle in Agnes. As a soldier asks her about her yell from her tent, Mila simply replies that it was nothing while continues to look at Tigre's sleeping face and remarks his shown mettle in the battlefields. After calling Tigre's casual name, Mila also fall asleep.
A quarter koku later, Gerard arrives to the tent while trying to speak with Tigre about their next plan, only to find Tigre and Mila sleeping together. Instead, Gerard leaves the tent and while decides to pretend not to see anything, he also commands the guard not to wake Tigre up until the next morning before he happily walks away.
Waking up from his slumber and being asked by an annoyed Mila for touching her for too long, Tigre immediately apologizes for the awkward situation but Mila forgives him as she too apologizes for being careless. Outside the camp, Tigre asks Mila about her next move, to which Mila replies that she will confirm her army's condition and might reconsidering to stay should Elen and Leitmeritz Army haven't return yet.
Suddenly, Tigre and Mila see an ominous shadow watches them from afar but slips away into the depth of the forest, prompts them to follow suit until they confront Vodyanoy, a frog demon who demands Tigre to follow him before charging towards him. Mila intervenes by attacking Vodyanoy but he manage to hold off even after receives Tigre's arrow shot, which he finds disappointing as he flipping backwards. Vodyanoy's demonic introduction gives Tigre and Mila shivers as they hear notorious tales about him via folklore, thought it doesn't stop Mila from fighting against the frog demon despite her exhaustion. After saving Mila via his three arrows, which are dissolved by Vodyanoy acid spit, Tigre notching his arrow at the Frog Demon again but Vodyanoy finds Tigre's stance boring and while taunting the archer for unable to use the Black Bow "properly", he also informs Tigre that he will leave Mila alone if he agrees to come along with him.
Mila interrupts by rejecting the offer on Tigre's behalf whilst using her Veda to trap Vodyanoy. Just as he feels irritated over Mila's interference, Vodyanoy is shocked to witness Tigre's charged arrow shot-where the Black Bow absorbs Lavias's power, fires towards him and freezes and shatters the Frog Demon, seemly killing him. The attack however severely costs Tigre's stamina as he barely stands up, prompting Mila to support him by holding his shoulder while asks him about the Black Bow's power, to which Tigre nods as affirmative reply but he claims not serious than the previous battle in Orange Plains.
Upon Leitmeritz Army's return from Zhcted, Elen is furious to see Mila holding Tigre in her arms. To add fuel to fire, Mila provokes Elen by asking Tigre to call her casual name, igniting a small quarrel between both Vanadises. After separating Tigre from the Vanadises' argument, Lim angrily asks Tigre to explain the situation where Tigre reluctantly tells her everything, especially Muozinel's attacks onto Agnes and his alliance with Mila. Nevertheless, Lim is relief to see Tigre as she praises him for holding off the behind their absence.
Regin, Brune's Lost PrincessEdit
In the commander's camp, Mashas tells Lim and Tigre that he heard rumors regarding someone who resembled "Regnas" in Agnes. However, a soldier enters the camp and informs Tigre that Regin wants to see him immediately, of which Tigre complies. Regin requests Tigre for a private talk but as his reassurances to the girl, Tigre tells Regin that Lim and Mashas are trustworthy people and because of Elen's and his generals' trust upon him, he don't want to keep it a secret because it would damage their friendship. Regin reveals herself as Prince Regnas of Brune who rumored to be "dead" in Dinant Plains. Her revelations stuns the trio, especially Tigre who suddenly remembers her in their first encounter in Vincennes six years ago. As both Elen and Mila enter into Tigre's camp, they angrily stare at Tigre when Elen asks rudely towards Regin while Mashas immediately faint due to his shock over the truth.
Even after learning Regin's real identity, both Elen and Lim demand the princess for more explanation but it only make Regin even more anxious. Through Tigre's reassurances, Regin explains to everyone about her survival in Dinant Plains and her reasons to hide her true identity.[Notes 34] When Mashas wakes up from his unconsciousness, Tigre asks Regin if Ganelon knew her survival, to which Mashas interrupts by telling Tigre that Ganelon has actually acknowledged her secret identity. Still, Elen remains dubious as she explains that even if they wish to help her, Regin would drags them into unwanted troubles. However, a word about Faron's critical condition from Tigre's mouth risen Regin's anxiety as she asks both Tigre and Mashas over such rumor, which unfortunately Tigre replies with an affirmative answer.
Regardless, Regin requests Tigre for the Silver Meteor Army's protection since she discovers the Earl's desire in defeating Thenardier. Due to her exposed identity and even risking attempted assassinations, her life would be in jeopardy so she asks Tigre if he can protect her until the end of the civil war. Seeing the request from the princess, the only heiress for the throne and the only one who can convince Faron to clean his name, Tigre accepts her request and decides to help the princess. [Notes 35] When Tigre asks Regin if she can prove herself as Faron's legitimate kin, Regin mentions Lutetia in front of everyone which surprises Mashas due to a fact that Lutetia is also Ganelon's province.

Despite Drekavac's lateness, Thenardier is pleased to see the mystical creatures while noticing long chains that warp around the dragons's bodies, something which Drekavac attributes as their special protection to help them in killing the Vanadises with ease.[Notes 36] With Drekavac's reassurances, Thenardier smirks violently as he finally able to annihilate the seemly unbeatable War-Maidens. Vodyanoy silently appears for Drekavac and reports his battles with Tigre and Mila, especially the archer's instant recovery and his Black Bow's power which greatly concerns the Frog Demon. Nonetheless, Drekavac rewards the Vodyanoy with a coin and tells him to standby momentarily, further stating Ganelon's extreme disadvantage before walking away.
