In episode 7, accompanied by Menel, Will plans to look for the village. They find a comfortable place in the jungle and decide to spend the night there. The following day, their search continues until they come across a temple surrounded by demons who have been using it to perform rituals. After they have understood their formation, Will attacks them out of the blue, and he is soon joined by Menel.
The duo easily takes out all the undead, and the latter realizes that the former is not just any ordinary rich brat who has used his money to get through life. They exchange farewells with all the undead and meet a ghost named Marpel. When she pushes Menel and asks him some tough questions, he confesses that he has been stealing, but he has no option as the gods never helped him, and he could not manage to leave helpless people who were starving.

The villagers who had left because of the demons returned to the village again and buried the dead. Late Menel tells Will about his childhood and thanks to him for helping the villagers.
