Alv and Dvergr confront Chevalier on Deucalion, but Alv is trapped inside the Reception System Chamber and turned into pure energy. Éclair and Lumière arrive on the Deucalion to confront Chevalier. He reveals his love for Éclair as his adoptive mother; he stole the Deucalion to foil the Nouvlesse plan to flee the galaxy (leaving it in economic ruin). Their reunion ends abruptly when Chevalier is shot by the ship's weaponry: Alv has actually merged with the Deucalion and has plans of her own for it.
