George said he wants the two to conduct an off-the-book investigation into Petale Village. He reveals that there is undead, and Alfred said they would go and look around. Later, Alfred, Marius, and Maurice head out for their investigation.
When they reach there, they find that the fence is broken, and Maurice comments that it is the work of the undead. The undead started to how up in numbers, and the trio finds Danious fighting with them. Danios don’t want to kill them; he is just defending. Marius uses the incantation to purify the undead, but they just stopped moving. Alfred and Maurice jumped in and started to kill them since they cannot be purified.
After killing them, Alfred asks Danious what is happening, and Danios said he has no clue. Danios ask why are they here, and Marius mentioned the Orthodox Church. Maurice put his hands on Marius’ mouth before she finished what she wanted to say. Danios heard that and attacked Marice, who told him to calm down since he is just an old man looking after his nephew. Alfred explains why they are involved with the Orthodox Church.
Danios left without telling him their name and told them not to get in his way. Later, Alfred finds out why Danios was hotheaded earlier because he is from this village, and he wants to help the villagers who have become undead. They both head to the cemetery and finds Danios paying his respect to his parents’ grave. He reveals the truth about Petale Village.

Danios shed tears asking why his father relied on God, but he died along with everyone in the village. Marius asks if Danios is the son of the priest. Danios reveal the truth about his past and his father before he left the village.
When his mother passed away, they wanted Danious to be the priest, but he refused and chose his path. His father drove him away from the village until he finds the truth that his village is destroyed. When they are still consoling him, the Ecclesiastical knights show up. The knights said that anyone who steps in this village must be burnt with it. Danios said it is not happening since the kingdom had abandoned the village a long time ago.
The knights said that the villagers of Petale were sacrificed to ally the witch’s curse. Alfred decided to help Danios with others, but the undead knight shows up and protects the village. The undead tries to kill everyone, and Maurice fights back, but it kept on regenerating. Marius performs another incantation that worked, and they snd the monster flying over the mounting edge.
