The masked stranger can see through the wolves' (Kiba and Hige) human form. Cheza, still being held by the stranger, let out a squeaky cry, which is heard by all the wolves. The person says something to Kiba and Hige, who are at the scene, about meeting again in Paradise. He then vanishes in a flash of bright light along with Cheza.
Quent shows Hubb the bite marks on his arm, saying it was the work of a wolf. Hubb doesn't seem to believe him and suggests that it might be some other animal that did that. Quent tells him that he's certain he saw a wolf (Toboe) transformed into a young kid. Noticing that liquor bottles are scattered all over the table, Hubb figures Quent's likely saying those because he's drunk. Quent talks about how wolves are still around, imposing as humans.
While feeding on some rats in a sewer, Kiba says the masked stranger he and Hige encountered is a Noble. Hige suggests not getting involved in anything with the Nobles.
Toboe's at Tsume's hideout. He questions Tsume for why he saved him from Quent earlier on. During an argument, Toboe says how Tsume only befriends human because they are weaker. Tsume lectures Toboe about how he's ignorant about the way of surviving in the city, and yells at him to go and try surviving on his own in the city.
Cher's resting on a bed. Hubb comes to visit her, and tell her abut what Quent said. He asks her if she's heard of the Book of the Moon. Cher suddenly has flashback of the night when she came face to face with the masked stranger.
While wandering through the back alleys, Tsume's being spotted and chased by the authority. Apparently, it is one of his underlings who sold him out. He knocks out all the police and flees.
Leara wants to go and check out Toboe. His dad tells her to stop it, saying people will think she's crazy. She ignores him and runs off. During that, Quent passes by and heard what Leara said about the wolf. Toboe's picking out food from a pile of trash. The manhole cover beside him opens up; out come Hige and Kiba. At that moment, Toboe notices Leara's there watching. She panics and screams for her dad. The three wolves escaped, in time right before Leara's dad, along with Quent, arrive. While running after wolves, Quent's accompanying canine, Blue, separates from him. She finds Tsume, who's still being tracked by the authority; the two battle it out on some bridge and both fell. Blue's unconscious; while Tsume flees just before the authority arrives at the scene. When Quent sees Blue, he notices hairs that are stuck on her.
The three wolves, Kiba, Hige, and Toboe are walking in the sewer. Hige tells Toboe how he and Kiba are heading out of the city. Toboe asks where they will go after that. Kiba says they are going for Paradise. Toboe pauses, and asks if any of them know Tsume; saying he might also want to come with them to Paradise. Just then, Kiba spots some blood on the ground, apparently coming from the drain opening above.
Hubb is searching a database for the Book of the Moon, and comes back with no match. A police tells him about what happened during their earlier pursue of the young leader of a gang (Tsume). He says they lost track of Tsume, but another dog came out of nowhere. At that moment, Quent bursts into Hubb's office.
The three wolves track Tsume down at his hideout. Kiba says he could smell Tsume's blood. Toboe suggests Tsume to join the group and leave the city to search for Paradise. Tsume mocks Toboe of how he believes in such things. Hige notices that the hideout's being surrounded by police. Kiba then tells the other that the lunar flower is no longer in the city, and therefore they no longer have the need to linger in the city. The police begin their raid. During their escape, Toboe slips and fall while running on some tubes. Tsume pulls him up. Unlike previously with Gehl, this time Tsume's able to save Toboe. Tsume decides to join the team on the journey. In a soliloquy, however, he says the reason he joined the other wolves is because he's fed up with the city.
