Griffith's transformed Apostles engage the Ganishka monsters. The larger Apostles, like Grunbeld and his men, simply trample over the monsters. Locus uses his massive double-ended spear, twirling it over his head and dispatching several monsters at once with it. Zodd executes vicious charges, running directly through his enemies. Griffith sits atop his horse nearly in the middle of the fray, yet remains untouched and unmoving.
The rest of the Band of the Hawk, however, are mortified. Until this point, they had not known that the war demons were really monsters in disguise, and seeing them engage in savage battle against other such horrific creatures has nearly rendered them speechless. Several Hawks begin to suspect Griffith of being an Apostle, but a loud telepathic voice angrily orders them to quell any such suspicions.
Only Mule, who's been so startled that he's fallen off his horse, looks at Sonia, the source of the voice.
