|Episode 27 - The Secret of the Pillar of Cephiro|
Hikaru keeps having daydreams about the demon woman talking about taking over Cephiro, and of Nova telling Hikaru that she'll kill her friends... She still doesn't say anything about it to the others and pretends everything is fine.
Then suddenly the castle starts shaking... Everyone's worried that Cephiro is coming closer and closer to destruction, and then Clef decides to show them the room where Princess Emeraude's crown is. He explains that this crown can only be touched by one that is worthy of becoming the Pillar... Hikaru recognizes this room from her dreams, where she saw that demon woman reaching out to touch this crown.
Right now this crown is in the shape of a magic circlet, but when someone worthy of becoming the Pillar is near it, it will change shape to suit that person. The room itself is protected by magic, and anyone who steps inside that isn't worthy of becoming the Pillar wouldn't make it out alive. This room is in an isolated part of the castle on the top floor, protected by a barrier so that only people with high level magic can even get to it... AND the room is also locked, and the only 3 keys that can unlock it are Clef's magic ring, Zagato's magic plate, and Lantis's magic sword.
Lantis recalls back when Cephiro was peaceful and beautiful... He was resting in a tree in the castle courtyard, when Zagato approached him and asked for his opinion on whether it's fair for the Pillar of this world to have all the responsibilities of keeping this world alive.
Hikaru tries to suggest going outside of the castle to look for more Cephiro residents that didn't get rescued yet, since none of the people in this castle are Pillar-worthy, maybe the next Pillar is still out there somewhere. Umi, Fuu, and Clef all think it's a bad idea for Hikaru to go out alone, and they can't have all 3 Magic Knights go out to search because the invading countries might show up at the castle at any time... Hikaru suggests asking Lantis to go with her, since he's a powerful swordsman... Clef doesn't trust Lantis because he went to live in Autozam for a while, but Hikaru says she can tell from his eyes that Lantis is a good person.
The episode ends as they show the bad guys talking in their lair. Alcyone, Nova, and the demon woman who we learn is named Lady Debonair.
Fools who keep fighting without noticing my existence... It would be better to quietly wait for all to disappear.
But Hikaru noticed.
The one who discovered our existence through dreams. One who will become our foe.
I want to play with Hikaru.
You were born for that one. Just wait a while longer. You will meet her soon.
I want to play with Hikaru soon! Anything Hikaru loves, I hate! I'll paint those two girls that Hikaru loves in bright-red blood. I'll beautifully rip apart that body of hers. I'm looking forward to it.
Then the woman goes and talks to Alcyone, showing how she manipulates her.
When the last Pillar, Princess Emeraude, disappeared... who saved you when you were escaping from the castle?
You did, my lady.
Who do you owe your life to?
My life belongs to you, my lady.
Alcyone, do you detest that high priest who did not reciprocate your love?
Your hatred amuses me.
People's hatred... Their pain... is my joy. My power.
You will be of good use to me, Alcyone.
As you wish... Lady Debonair.</spoiler>
