Celestia has found the Atylcore and has become obsessed with her new power from it. Vega is sent to subdue her, but realizes she is no match for the playful, yet newly dangerous Celestia. In the world of the Hunters, Malek's mission being to simply keep the balance between Heroines and Humans, is compromised when a Heroine-Hating Hunter, Karma, goes out of control.
Celestia tortures Vega and makes her pass out from her powers after she leaves. Malek tries to avoid the fight, but instead shows Karma who's boss by choking her out and carrying her off over his shoulder.
