From love to hatred-and light to dark. Having discovered the horrifying truth about the Black Barrenbloom, Adlet is tormented by the dilemma it presents, and he struggles to decide whether to tell the others. Meanwhile, the Braves make their way to the Temple of Fate, where they find someone they never expected, as well as an inscription of hieroglyphs that makes Tgurneu's plan clear. Recognizing the danger, Adlet moves to discuss next steps-until Fremy interrupts with a shocking revelation, and he is forced to make the ultimate choice...!
Enemies without...and an enemy within. After escaping the impostor's trap, the newly assembled Braves of the Six Flowers set off to fight the Evil God--only to find yet another person bearing the Crest! With the clock ticking down on the time until their fearsome enemy awakens, the seven have no choice but to journey through the Howling Vilelands with a false hero among them. To make matters worse, a seemingly invincible fiend commander with connections to several Braves attacks the divided group. They must work together to have even a hope of defeating such an adversary...but how can they, when anyone could be the traitor?
After barging into the Piena Kingdom's holy tournament and causing a scene, Adlet was curtly jailed and, soon after, met the princess Nashetania. Though Adlet was viewed as unfit and unworthy by his fellow man, the Spirit of Fate bestowed upon Adlet the proof that he was one of the chosen Braves of the Six Flowers. But cornered by his fellow Braves who believe he is a traitor, Adlet must prove his innocence and find the true imposter before his companions play right into the enemy's hands.
