In the morning, Charme awakens only to discover Levi inside her futon much to her embarrassment. However, Levi warns her that if she continues to remain nonchalant, an assassin could strike when suddenly Lugh appears before clashing with Levi. After greeting one another, Levi manages to erotically ensnare the ambusher with her special ninja threads before introducing Charme to Lugh of Iscariot. Lugh then reveals that her target was Charme but sarcastically surrenders her search for Murasame. Nevertheless, Levi perversely interrogates Lugh using the threads to forcibly relinquish her information.
Afterwards, Lugh calmly explains her mission to retrieve Murasame to Levi over breakfast while Charme remains confused about the peaceful situation within the artificial world. Nontheless, Levi and Lugh assure her that they should be able to live normally until the enemy attacks. Subsequently, Levi then questions Lugh for targeting which Charme which the thief explains that Master Liber instructed her to steal the weapon from Charme. However, Charme insists that she does not have the weapon is her possession, but the group suspects the Paladins intentions. Suddenly, they sense an enemy before Charme is captured by a snake creature to Lugh's jealousy. Levi and Lugh are then surrounded by a crowd of creatures, implying that a Breakdown Phenomenon has appeared. While Lugh tries to rescue Charme, Levi dispatches several of the monsters before discovering Lugh happily entangled by snakes as well and Charme missing. After liberating Lugh, Levi instructs Lugh to handle the beasts while she follows the thread planted on Charme during Lugh's ambush. Lugh creates a path through the mass of creatures to allow Levi to escape while she remains behind.
As the ninja traverses through town following the thread while easily dispatching creatures, Levi arrives at a building before she is ambushed by several magic spells, barely avoiding the onslaught before a group of individuals reveal their presence. Noting the types of magic utilized, Levi deduces the culprits as the Wu Xing Ninja Forces. Standing above an unconscious Charme, the leader introduces herself as Ryuhime Kashin before declaring that she will defeat Levi.
