As Lan Fan and Ling continue their assault on Gluttony in the dark, Fu appears from the shadows beside Ed and Darius. He and Lan Fan came here after sensing that something was up with some powerful presences, and after nearly getting caught in an explosion from a bomb Lan Fan threw at Gluttony, Ed finds out that she and Fu are carrying several types of bombs. Since the people in the nearby slum are starting to relight their surroundings, Ed realizes that the priority is dealing with Pride and gets Fu's help. Across the forest, Heinkel has exhausted himself attacking Pride who just keeps getting back up. Unfortunately for Heinkel, some villagers arrive carrying a lamp, giving Pride the shadows he needs to fight back. Before the villagers run away, Pride makes sure to knock the lamp into the nearby bushes to start a fire. He then tries to kill Heinkel, but luckily Ed comes to the Chimera's rescue.
