Paris Combat Revue
The Paris Combat Revuenote  was organized in 1924 by Isabel "Grand-Mère" Lilac and Japanese ambassador Norimichi Sakomizu. Whenever Paris is at peace, the team often performs cabaret acts at Le Chattes Noires.

Erica Fontaine and Glycine Bleumer are recruited into the revue as their first members. In 1926, Grand-Mère contacts Imperial Combat Revue Captain Ichiro Ogami to lead the revue. Coquelicot, Lobelia Carlini and Hanabi Kitaoji join the team to help Ogami and his friends fight the Paris Phantoms. Upon their successful victory, Ogami returns to Tokyo and Erica is selected to become its new captain, but soon gives up that post. Eventually, in 1927, the Paris Combat Revue travels to Tokyo to help the Imperial Combat Revue stop Ōkubo Nagayasu from threatening Tokyo once again. Two years later, the Paris, New York and Imperial Combat Revues battle Jeanne d'Arc. During the Great Demon War in 1930, the Combat Revue ultimately seal themselves along with the New York and Imperial Combat Revues to contain the demons in the Phantom Capital.
