There are those who still roam the world aimlessly trying to survive with every last breath, though well hidden in their demeanor, Ringo and Ohji fit this description but even people such as them have something to hope and believe in.

Baby Ringo

The beauty of innocence has fuel hope, as a reason to believe

Dio's conquest is once again interrupted by the news of an attack on his army, while searching for Luna is serveants were attacked, much to Dio's surpised. Followed by Leda, Dio searches for the assailants as a way to learn more about Luna. During Dio's confusion, Casshern shares the same feelings of distress as he and Lyuze meet with Ohji and Ringo, where he learns of their past where Ohji discovered Ringo crying as a baby as if she was human. Although Casshern is shocked, he is happy to learn of this truth while Dio searches, fueld by rage for his own truth.

Finnaly arriving at his destination, Dio and Leda discover the two assailants are non other then Vulcan and Mars, formerly the strongest Robots in Braiking Boss' empire. They bait Dio into dueling them and nearly take his life until Leda sacrifices her freedom in order to allow them to spare him. She leaves Dio, leaving him alone to remorese his defeat until he is interrupted by the arrival of his former commander, Braiking Boss. The tyrant reminds Dio that his rage is pointless and his obsession with Casshern has made him vulnerable to facing his own kind.

Mars death

Newfound believes can fuel the passion to begin a revalation within ones self

Braiking Boss finishes by telling the fallen warrior that the reason he is considered weaker then Casshern is because of Casshern's former lack of emotion as a pure killing machine, but now he and the two assailants both have goals, instead of obsessions. Dio is inspired by Braiking Boss' words to prove that he will achieve his ultimate "goal" of defeating Casshern and sets off to reclaim Leda. Dio confronts his opponents once again and with a new passion, uses intelligence to divide the two and defeat them seperatley, killing Mars in the process. He leaves Vulcan alone to greave such as he it to Dio. As he loves to feed on the feeling of the weak, Braiking Boss reappears at Vulcan's side who attacks him after blaming him for abandoning his army, Braiking Boss decides to end Vulcan's suffering and kills him. Dio successfully learns from the error of his ways and gains strength from his true ambitions. Just as Casshern and his group do, once they stumble apon the former home of the Sun..Luna.
