Meanwhile, Lena decides to use her influence to procure additional benefits for her troops. She also manages to organize a small team of loyal officers. Shin, who has been captured by the Federacy of Giad, meets the provincial President, Ernst Zimerman, who informs him that he and his friends will be treated as guests in the newly-formed nation.
