“The Familiar’s Mark”
“Tsukaima no Kokuin” (使い魔の刻印)
Saito has been revived, but his runes have faded away. Louise is worried since Saito is now no longer her familiar. Agnès informs Saito and Louise they are being summoned by the Queen while the school was celebrating the ending war with Albion. On the journey, the three were attacked by Sheffield, who is revealed to be the familiar of a Void mage. At the castle, Henrietta gives Saito a document that would make him a chevalier and effectively a noble. Saito declines because of his lack of Gandálfr abilities. He remembers the Elf’s name: Tiffania Westwood who saved him. Derflinger tells them where they may find her. That night, while worrying about recent events, Louise finds Saito on the balcony. She tells him that she is afraid he will leave again, especially with the disappearance of the runes. He reassures he will not leave despite the absence of their contract. However, when he tries to make out with her, she blows him up. The next day, Louise makes Saito follow the carriage on foot.
