The preview starts with Lisette, Leo, and Celia defeating a beast and saving a citizen. Soon afterward, Leo and Celia’s cute bickering is stopped by Lisette’s commanding presence. Together, they head towards their next goal.

It is a battle between the justices of individuals. Will Leo and Hugo come to terms with each other and reach common ground? Their backgrounds and cause of conflict will be revealed soon and I am curious to know about them finally.
