At the Legadonia Entente Alliance Port Arnelus, Colonel Anson Sioux farewells his daughter as he left to take command of the relatively quiet Orse Fjord. Meanwhile at the Imperial Army Northern Theater Command Strategy Conference, Tanya proposes a strategic retreat, to resupply Imperial forces instead of a futile short-term offensive. She deduces that it is a diversion for Empire forces to launch a sea offensive. The Empire decides to send the Mage Battalion to launch a surprise attack at the heavily defended Orse Fjord in advance of their North Sea Fleet. During the attack they are intercepted by a Battalion-sized unit of mages led by Colonel Sioux. Tanya leads a small group to intercept while the others destroy the defensive cannons allowing the fleet to land and take control of the railroads. In a final confrontation, Tanya shoots and bayonets Colonel Sioux who falls into the sea.
