Overview[edit | edit source]
The Freedom group begin faced with a split of 3 paths. To decided which way to go, they all pick a preferred direction at once. Battalia and Arashi pick the same choice out of gut reaction, Analog and Bastion pick another, and Apex picks the third based on the wind. Instead of trying to consolidate their choices, the team splits up (remember, way back it was stated teams don't always stick together).
As Arashi and Battalia go on their way, the Scorpear's leg gets stuck in a crack. Without Analog, they can't fix it. Arashi offers to go find him, but at that moment a chainsaw wielding man appears. He turns out to be a Zoid Mechanic, and repairs the Scorpear back at his garage, where the duo meet his wife and newborn kid. Arashi and Battalia don't have any money, and although the man doesn't want payment, the two offer to help work to repay his kindness.
As Arashi and Battalia work in the field, Battalia talks about her past. Her parents were similar to the mechanic they just met, and had worked on the Scorpear when Battalia was young. However, bandits attacked and Battalia's father was killed defending them. Later, her mother also died. Battalia turned to bounty hunting, and captured the person that attacked her father as her first reward. Eventually, this led up to her meeting Arashi and the events earlier in the series.
As Battalia and Arashi finish their work, bandits attack the mechanic. They were after the bounty on Arashi. Determined not to lose, Battalia and Arashi fend off the bandits, only for Numb-Lock to arrive. Battalia and Arashi run, but find themselves cornered against a cliffside. As they fight Numb-Lock reveals to Arashi that they are after his Zoid Key. They defeat the Raptors with relative ease, but Numb-Lock proves strong, especially with his Death Blast.
At that moment, Apex arrives and uses his Second Gear's Howling Shout. The attack allows Arashi to slip past and use his new King of Claw Spiral attack. Finally Battalia stabs the Knuckle Kong, and it falls off the cliff. The trio then leaves. Numb-Lock survives but the Kong is badly damaged.
