Shinra is shocked by the news of his little brother being affiliated with the Preacher, and before he could question the Joker, he disappears. As he returns to Cathedral 8 , he begins contemplating the fact that he will soon confront his brother, and the promise that he made with his mother about protecting his family, and swears to stand by it. Soon after, the 8th members gather, and Akitaru gives each member a pile of papers to look over and spot any clues that may relate to the White Hoods. Arthur becomes quickly exhausted by the labor of paper-work, and while Shinra mocks him, his stomach rumbles, alerting the idea of making food. Tamaki rushes to the kitchen and comes back out bare-skin with an apron on, leaving everyone baffled. Takehisa, disappointed by the view, shuns her out of the kitchen, and asks Shinra to give him a hand instead. While cutting the vegetables, the company commander notices Shinra's troubled mind, and reassures him that he can speak to any of the commanders if needs be, to which Shinra genuinely thanks him. As Shinra hands out the food to everyone, Akitaru and Takehisa converse, stating that the victim of their first ever case was wearing all white clothes, and that there was a red cross in the remains, the same red cross of the White Hoods.
