In the capital of Ades, Morvarid, Vasant, Kayvān, and Luscinia Hāfez report to the child empress Sārā Augusta. They believe that the Earth does not have the resources to support all the people who have returned to Earth on Exiles, and that they are invading Kingdom of Turan to return the lands to the people the Turanians originally stole it from. They are also seeking the Keys to the other orbiting Exiles.
At Kartoffel, Millia is upset at the capture of Liliana, and at seeing the Lasas being cut apart for scrap metal. Millia tries to steal a Vespa to go searching for a cup that belonged to her sister and was taken from the Lasas by a Sky Pirate. Fam Fan Fan feels bad for her and offers to pilot the ship, since Millia doesn't know how.
Millia and Fam succeed in recovering the cup that belonged to Liliana, and Fam tells Millia about how the Sky Pirates found her as a baby in a crashed vanship and adopted her. She also says that her dream is to re-establish the Grand Race, which was discontinued after the war began.
The Third and Fourth Ades battle fleets, led by Generals Ōrang and Sorūsh, defeat the battle fleets of Notos, and Luscinia reports the surrender of Turan to the Ades Federation’s child Empress, Sara Augusta. Sara Augusta wishes to conquer and regain the lands for their original inhabitants, whose ancestors were driven out and taken by immigrants of Exiles like Turan, telling Luscinia and his Generals to continue their work including finding all of the keys to the Exiles. At the Sky Pirates’ fortress, Kortoffel, Millia blames Fam for not rescuing Liliana and is upset in seeing Lasas sold and turned into scrap metal. When Millia causes a commotion trying to ride Fam’s Vespa to regain her sister’s chalice that was bought by Sky Pirate, Fam, feeling sorry for her, helps Millia get back the chalice. Meanwhile, Millia’s butler Teddy is invited into Giselle’s family home, where she explains the Sky Pirates are refugees who were forced off their lands by Ades because they were descendents of Exile immigrants. Having retrieved the chalice, Fam tells Millia her past, revealing she was an orphan adopted by Atamora after surviving a vanship crash when she was a baby, and shares her dream to see the return of, and win in, the Grand Race of vanships, a contest regularly held when the world was still at peace. Arriving at Kortoffel, the residents perform “Okuribi”, a candlelight ritual to honor those who died in battle and to return their souls to the skies. Watching this, Millia apologizes to Fam and vows to change herself. After Millia gets a haircut by Giselle, Dio informs everyone that the mysterious battleship Silvius has been spotted, and Fam plans to steal it.
