“The Return of the Hero”
“Eiyū no Okaeri” (英雄のおかえり)
Tiffania travels back to Tristain with the group. While introducing herself to the Queen, she is asked to remove her hat, and she reveals her elven heritage with her long pointed elf ears. Although elves are shunned by human society, Tiffania explains that she is in fact a half-elf: Her mother was an elf who died years earlier, and her father was the Archduke of Albion. Henrietta shows compassion for Tiffania. They discuss Sheffield’s comment about other Void mages. Henrietta offers to knight Saito again and he accepts. Siesta then announces she is Saito’s maid by order of the Queen, much to Louise’s frustration. Tiffania is also revealed to be cousins with Henrietta, and she stays at the castle until she figures out what she wants to do. Saito, Louise, and Siesta return to the academy to a big celebration. Guiche is now the captain of the student corps known as The Knights of Ordine, and as appointed Saito their vice-capain. Reynald, Malicorne, and the Ordine knights carry Saito away.
