Elie's Birthday
Elie's Birthday

In a flashback, she remembers talking to her dad. The mother makes the father take Elie to the zoo. When Elie mentions the horse and betting, the mom quickly finds out that the father took her to the race track. Young Elie thinks which horse would be first place. The father and young Elie walk home after winning lots of money. When the father asks Elie what she would be, Elie replies that she wants to be a bug. Before coming home, the mom surprises her by throwing her fifth birthday. Elie notices that she can use Etherion (young Elie blows out the candles with Etherion) when she was little.


In another flashback, she remembers a person who traveled with her to various places like the Tower of Din. She remembers that the man has a blue crest on the right side of the face (overlapping the right eye). The man with the blue crest is Kam who knew Gale Glory. The flashback ends with Elie wanting to remember her parents.

Elie tries to figure out if Kam was referring to Haru's father or King. The forest starts to turn back to the desert, and the skeleton disappears as well. Everyone reunite with Elie. Sieg Hart asks Elie if she can control Etherion, but Elie says no. Elie states that she had this power since she was child, so no experiments gave her that power. Elie reassures everyone will find out the answers.

Back at Demon Card, the Oracion Seis talk about Doryu, Elie, and rebuilding Demon Card. Julius says they have to find sixth member. Haja states that they need a final thing until a soldier is tossed out of the throne room. The Oracion Seis finds some of the soldiers are killed while Lucia Raregroove announces himself. Haja gives Lucia, the Decalogue sword, and he bows down to Lucia who is the inheritor of Raregroove.
