Sechs

Summary[]

Sechs realizes that the answer to his question of 'What is essential to a true warrior?' for now is that there is only a winner and a loser in battle. Getz, who is perched on a column, laments that his opponents are so small as he and Koen are more accustomed to fighting 50 meter tall battle robots. Despite his reluctance, Getz attacks with the Spinning Swallow Moon, which the three dodge, before burrowing into the ground. Elf and Zwölf are worried that he tore through their mono-molecular wire trap, but Sechs is amused and readies his upgraded Solenoid Quench Gun. Getz then begins to tear up the column they are standing on from below and Sechs fires at him, but is forced to dodge and realizes that the gun is useless against Getz's rotational power and electromagnetic barrier. Getz stops as his attack has completely missed, and deploys his anti-ship sword, Dizaster.

He charges at the trio, but they dodge. Sechs is able to maneuver himself above Getz and tries to get him with the Titan Blade, but it is deflected by Getz's barrier and Koen swats him away. Elf and Zwölf themselves make an attempt to attack Getz's rear, but Koen ensnares their wire with his Pilgrim's Canes and reels them in so that they get caught in an impact caused by Dizaster. Getz then powers up Dizaster and fires a powerful energy blast called Calamity Thrust that blows through two of the arena shields; this does cause some concerns, so Aga Mbadi has backup power diverted into the shields just in case. On the Guntroll platform, Qu Tsang remarks that Getz is the best at what he does and is committed to the Stellar Nursery Society's cause, while Saya wonders where Alita is.

Back in the arena, Getz claims that he aimed to miss his opponents and offers to spare them if they surrender. Elf and Zwölf are all for this, but Sechs refuses and is determined to win; as the pair begin to panic over Sechs becoming consumed by battle, the latter says they helped him discover Getz's weakness. Asking if they want to hear his song, he then rips up a section of column and hurls it at Getz. Following up by leaping on top of the section, Sechs extends the Titan Blade. Getz splits the oncoming projectile, revealing Elf and Zwölf hiding behind each half. They ensnare Koen with their mono-molecular wire while Sechs strikes at Getz's barrier with the Titan Blade and uses his momentum to swing around and impale Koen from behind. Elf and Zwölf then pull, rotating Sechs back around to face Getz's rear. Getz realizes too late that their objective all along was to get Koen as Sechs uses the impaled monkey to neutralize his barrier and stab him in the back with the Titan Blade.

Qu Tsang calmly accepts Getz's defeat and gets ready to fight while reassuring Saya before yelling at Niz to get ready. He is contemplating the remains of his father Laib's railsuit alone in a storage room when Rio, a young boy, enters and asks him not to get hurt. Niz tells Rio not to worry and asks his father to give him strength.

Sechs gloats at the defeated Getz, declaring that he has learned one more truth, that he is better than him. He claims that he is sick of trying to figure out how the world works and loves to fight because the truth is laid bare through victory or defeat. However Koen and Getz are perplexed by this, asking if Sechs' pursuit of truth takes precedence over his own ego or life. This takes Sechs aback, as he had never thought about this, and when he tries to claim that he does not need such complicated questions because they confuse him, Getz replies that the world is full of such quandaries. Sechs tries to make Getz shut up by delivering the coup de grâce, but is stopped by a rock thrown by Niz, who has arrived to fight with Qu Tsang.
