Reiji, now rejecting his Phantom self Zwei, escapes with Ein while the rest of Inferno gets worked up on finding Scythe Master. Ein had planned to commit suicide by shooting herself as she had no place to call home before Reiji stops her from killing herself. He consoles her and gives her a new name and identity of her own: Eren. Eren encounters Scythe Master in an alley after gunning down an armed man looking for her. Lizzie and Claudia capture Reiji in a parking lot when he is about to hotwire a car. Reiji is subsequently interrogated, being accused of assisting Scythe Master in rebelling against Inferno. Claudia offers Reiji assistance in saving Eren, by releasing his restraints and offering him a pistol for him to use. In return, Reiji promises Claudia that he will take care of Scythe Master.
