Full Details

Rom tries to convince Orphion and Livia that Earth must not be destroyed.

Orphion orders Livia to attack Rom and she obeys.

Orphion is attempting to drill into the Earth’s core to destroy the planet. They are on an oil rig previously inhabited by Wraiths. The Wraith are now hiding below as Orphion sends energy down to them from the rig. Orphion thinks he is setting events in motion that will destroy Earth but he is being tricked by the Wraiths.

The Absence, a new form of Wraith that can phase in and out, attacks the space knights. He drains the energy from Livia. Orphion is saved by Rom from the Absence. He gives Rom a choice save Livia or stop him.

Rom chooses to save Livia. Rom cannot do it alone so Orphion reluctantly stops and helps him. Livia is angered by them saving her over stopping the Wraith. The Wraiths below the rig are destroyed but Absence survives.
