Makoto makes it clear that he never had any intention of joining forces with demons, drawing a comparison to Rona’s actions in Rotsgard. Rona attempts to defend herself, but Makoto brushes off her excuses as being too troublesome. He points out that he has already successfully cleared the city. Rona alludes to the involvement of their demi-human accomplices and suggests a proposition for Makoto to expand his business in demon territories if he agrees to leave.

Makoto declines, suggesting they fall back instead, prepared to battle all three if needed. Io informs Rona of the situation, and she reprimands him for employing the Rose Sign. Sofia ridicules Io and informs Makoto he has earned the privilege of facing her at her full power. As Sofia charges forward, she unveils the identity of the Devil, leaving Makoto stunned as he realizes it is him.

The focus shifts back to Makoto and Sofia’s confrontation. Despite utilizing techniques borrowed from multiple greater dragons, Makoto remains unharmed and is able to retaliate against Sofia’s assaults. He cautions Io and Rona to keep their distance.

After Sofia cuts through Makoto’s Mana Matter, Io takes advantage of the opening to attack. However, Makoto quickly sends him flying and warns him against attempting it again. Sofia continues her assault, destroying Makoto’s Mana Matter, but he promptly recreates it to fend off her strike. In response, Makoto incinerates Sofia, who swears to avenge her defeat by killing him.
