On the front cover is Reim, and on the back is Marie. The necklace in gray displays Reim's connection to Pandora.
Once, following the Tragedy of Sablier, Jack Vessalius made a valiant sacrifice to stop his best friend, Glen Baskerville, by allowing his body to anchor a set of seals by which Glen’s soul was confined. But now these seals, long guarded by mages under the watchful gaze of Pandora, are being smashed one by one at the hands of the Crimson Shinigami, whose aim is to return their master to his once-whole state. And so, the fragile peace achieved over the last century begins to writhe, like a horror released from Pandora’s forbidden box…
Oscar Vessalius has just arrived at the Pandora headquarters to meet with the other Dukes, who were already there. Sheryl teasingly said that Oscar was five minutes late to the meeting.
At a different place, Break just woke up and he was startled a bit. He started to wave his hand in front of his face. Reim came into the room and noticed that he was awake. Break asked if he where was he and was he still in Sablier. Reim was wondering if he was really awake and then a voice was heard saying that he was at the Rainsworth household. It was Sharon and she was not so happy looking. She was in her "dark" mode and was holding a paper fan. Break was really shocked and was scared about what she will do. A couple of slaps could be heard. She was all angry at Break and Reim for just disappearing.
Reim was making faces at Break, after learning that he'd lost his sight. Break proceeded to kick Reim off his bed and revealed to him that he can still make out general shapes, though he said that it was an ability that would lose soon enough. Break seemed completely calm about the situation, something which baffled Reim. He explained that once he had gotten used to it, all would be the same as before, even stating that he could still kill without his sight, as he relied on other factors too. However when he thought of Sharon, Break became notably concerned.
After hearing this Reim decided to help Break hide his condition, giving him three days to settle in, and taking over all his tasks that involved reading and writing. Reim told Break that he was was doing this partly to keep this issue from hurting Sharon, as he knew Break was worrying about her. He also said that doing this was part of his job, which Break took to mean that he's doing this because he's an adviser to a Duke. This however, angered Reim, causing him to call Break a moron and shouting that he's doing this because they were friends before promptly leaving.

Soon they realize that their Chains' powers will not work within the presence of the Seal, making it so they can't even be summoned.
