- Chapter 24:
- Coco gives the people of Romonneau who were turned to gold a warmth stone Orugio designed to help people stay warm, because their predicament reminded her of her mother. They place it in a magic mirror designed to amplify the effect because its too little, and the amplified heat ends up melting them. Coco is unable to stop them in time, leaving her and Tetia crying as the gilded citizens of Romonneau thank them for what amounts to a Mercy Kill.
- Learning that Euini's transformation may be impossible to undo because the magic was branded onto his skin... then learning that even as an unwilling victim of forbidden magic, he would still be considered a criminal by the Magic Security Council
