Viper's Creed: Season 1, Episode 11
Theresia and the renegade military faction were able to seize control of AGS with help from Ulla, who had been assisting them all along from the shadows. A Bugmech was launched against the public to further blame Saiki and the other Blademen as "terrorists". Saiki and the other Blademen, including Kariya, remain in hiding while receiving assistance from an unlikely ally. A covert operation was launched by renegade soldiers to kill the Blademen in a mob-owned restaurant. Gharib stays behind and offers his life on the line to assist his AGS Blademen colleagues in escaping with their lives. Rudra was later wounded and killed by military snipers after his Maneuver-Blade malfunctions.
