[Summary]

While assigning armor to the remaining groups Clef is visited by Ragyn, as he appears in the main room filled with everyone. Megor refuses the armor saying that if he cannot defeat his enemy without the armor than he is better off dead. Megor laughs at the physical form of Ragyn underestimating the threat before them. Ragyn, a little perturbed at Megorís reaction, physically attacks Megor knocking him back into the ground. As Ragyn is about to slam his right leg into Megorís head Clef summons a barrier around Megor. Ragyn, who yells at the mage about the ethics of one on one, turns to Megor using his own magic. He creates a void of darkness around Megor. Inside Megor is trapped in nothingness for what seems an eternity when something happens, himself from a possible future shows up. Ragyn disappears as usual leaving only a stunned silence behind him. Meanwhile the two Megors merge as one and are finally able to escape the void. He admits that even in himself there are weaknesses. With that, and getting out of the void, that Umiís group should start their quest with himself as part of the transport instead of Ascotís beasts.
