Ein is dispatched to take out Inferno henchmen in a warehouse district as part of a plan hatched by Raymond and Claudia to eliminate Scythe Master. Claudia, in summoning Zwei to her mansion, gives him his Japanese passport and reveals his real name to be Reiji Azuma. When Zwei is in shock, Claudia offers him a place alongside her after revealing her feelings. However, Reiji returns back to the complex hideout to see Ein wounded after being shot by Lizzie when the two confronted each other. Reiji receives a call from Claudia, telling him that he would be killed if he would assist Ein in any way. Refusing to be intimidated, Reiji helps Ein remove the bullet from her wound before he secretly evacuates her from the complex in order to avoid being tracked down by Inferno for refusing to join with Claudia in her plans to take over Inferno and get rid of Scythe Master.
