The group returns to Uruk, where Gilgamesh plans to use the Axe of Marduk against Gorgon. Since the Axe of Marduk had killed Tiamat, it should be effective against Gorgon, who possesses Tiamat’s Authority. However, the Axe’s last known position was in the city of Eridu, which is in the territory of the third Goddess, Quetzalcoatl. Suddenly, Quetzalcoatl attacks Uruk and kills exactly one hundred soldiers before taking her leave, explaining that even though her mission is to destroy humanity, she’s decided to only kill one hundred humans per day and promises to return tomorrow to kill another hundred. Jaguar Warrior is also revealed to be allied with Quetzalcoatl, and she carries away all of the corpses Quetzalcoatl left behind. Roman comes up with a plan to destroy Quetzalcoatl’s temple in Eridu, which should hopefully weaken her enough to be fought conventionally. Ishtar warns Ritsuka that Quetzalcoatl is the “Apex of Good”, meaning that only attacks considered “evil” can harm her. On their way to Eridu, they encounter Jaguar Warrior again. Upon finding out Jaguar Warrior is a rogue Servant with no master who is forced to serve Quetzalcoatl to survive, Ritsuka manages to convince her to join his side. Jaguar Warrior then shows them a camp where the soldiers Quetzalcoatl apparently killed are still alive, having been revived by Quetzalcoatl to serve in her own army when the time comes. Concluding that Quetzalcoatl isn’t evil, Ritsuka resolves to defeat her in combat to convince her to join him.
