She sends her men to capture the group, only planning to keep three alive for interrogation. Just as the Aurora forces started to close in, Nichel appeared just in time to vouch for the El Search Party. Asella hears Nichel out and agrees to give them asylum.
Returning to the Aurora camp, the El Search Party are updated of the situation, Asella informing that Winster had been capture but they've been receiving occasional messages from him assuring he is safe. She also informs reports that the White-Ghost Army had learned of a method to track Aegirp's soul fragments and had begun a full scale search.

Eve looks at the device and discovered it had just been turned off, Asella was embarrassed by the event and goes on to head the message from the communication device. Hearing the message stating that Berthe had already obtained 3 fragments and the souls were being tracked, the El Search Party decided they need to take the battle straight to Berthe.
