Story Impact

  • Liala is introduced as Leohart's elder sister and his loyal supporter. As the strongest and devoted member in Leohart Faction, Liala will going to do by any means to defend the siblings' dream by killing those who posed danger to her brother's reign. Of those who Liala had slain however, only Jin and Basara are spared due to a longtime acquaintance between Jin and Liala, where the latter seemly know the truth behind Jin's bloodline.
  • The Demon Council members are introduced as another major antagonist group aside from Leohart's Faction. Unlike Leohart and the other members (exception of Volga and Admirath) of his faction who still have some sense of honor and respect despite their strong antagonism against the Toujou Household and Moderate Faction, these ministers detested both Leohart and Ramusas due to their greed for power and desire to "restore" order of the Demon Realm under their image, even though that very decision would consequently kill everyone in the Demon Realm. Fortunately their plot is foiled due to an unlikely alliance formed between both factions and their opposition is quelled by Liala's assassinations.
  • With the battle comes to end in indecisive conclusion, the tournament itself is interrupted by the invasion of Chaos and other Heroic Spirits.
    • Despite his earlier advantages against Basara, Leohart is overwhelmed upon confronting an Awakened Basara who is later freed from his rampage by Mio .
    • Basara and Mio, alongside with Ramusas, temporarily ally themselves with Leohart to defeat Chaos the King of Heroic Spirits which is also the Demon Council Members' trump card to dispose of both factions.
  • With the demise of the Demon Council members by Liala, it not only solidifies Leohart's unopposed rule but also temporarily brings peace and tranquility in the Demon Realm.
    • The Toujou Household would return to the Human Realm and continue their ordinary lives until Basara's return to the Hero Village.

Trivia

Notes

  1. It appears that both factions-despite their rivalries-had the same goal since Chaos's "descent" and causing massive: Whilst Liala slaughtered them just to ensure Leohart's reign remains unchallenged, Basara's reason to slaughter the Demon Council because he wished to protect his sister from being used as a tool by the politics within the Demon Realm.
  2. The major reason why Liala mentioning about Basara was because she was planning on killing Basara should suspects that Basara might be antagonistic .
  3. While Belphegor's assassination prompting Liala fell remorse for not killing Basara earlier, she also realized that killing the boy now will not only enraging Jin but also making the Demon Realm even more chaotic.
