Mika arrives in Sannomiya with Lacus Welt and René Simm. The humans flee from a Horseman as it wrecks their surroundings. One girl trips and falls, and the Horseman moves to kill her. Mika steps between them and slaughters the Horseman with one strike. As the horseman falls, humans cheer for the vampires who have come to save them. Lacus laughs, stating that they are not "protecting" livestock but rather owning them.
René announces that territory will now be ruled by vampires. In exchange for their safety, the vampires request human blood.
Meanwhile, the girl Mika saved pulls down her jacket and the sleeve of her dress to expose her neck better. She offers herself to Mika. Later on, it is revealed that he does not bite her.
