Seireiden Battle Arc[edit | edit source]

Leraje with Orobas in Greece

Leraje is in the crowd of Denizens as Yūji gives a speech before entering the Divine Gate with the Trinity. Decarabia then orders the cheering masses to move out. Later in the war against the Flame Haze Army in the Western Front, Leraje leads the second army and also serves as Orobas' adjutant. She, along with Decarabia, who ranks as the Supreme Commander, remonstrates Orobas about his selfless act of leading the army on the front lines himself. Leraje was with Orobas in Greece[3] as they battled the Flame Haze lead by a powerful spellcaster. They triumph over the Flame Haze forces with the price of losing the wolf-shaped Denizen, Phaleg.

When the Seireiden is under attack, Orobas is given the rank of Supreme Commander of the western region's armies. Along with Leraje, they are ordered to retreat back to the base.

In Tehran, on the outskirts of Iran, Leraje faces an encounter with Seere Habichtsburg who is in pursuit of them and, with the help of Mammon's Unrestricted Spell, they are able to defend themselves against the Flame Haze's bombardment.

Misaki City Final Battle Arc[edit | edit source]

As Kazumi and Yūji arrive on the roof of Misaki Municipal High School, Leraje, along with Sydonay, Pirsoyn, Ribesal, Orobas, Bel Peol, Haborym, Mammon, and Stolas, line up around a carpet leading to Seireiden to greet her.[4]

Orobas and Leraje watching the Denizens marching

As Yūji casts his black Fūzetsu over Misaki City, Leraje and the other members of Bal Masqué watch Yūji and Kazumi ascend to Seireiden. Later, Leraje is with Orobas atop a construction site, watching the Denizens wanting to go to Xanadu cover the streets, marching towards the ceremony. Leraje is less ecstatic than Orobas about the scene and is deep in thought. Later, her and Orobas' army are attacked by WestShore. As WestShore dismantles their army, the two decide to be her opponents.[5]

As WestShore engages with their army, Orobas asks Leraje why the Flame Haze are fighting instead of advancing. She responds by stating that they are waiting for Xanadu to be created with time on their side.[6]

Leraje riding Orobas

WestShore is still fighting the Denizens when Leraje rushes at her while riding Orobas in his true form. They feel that they have to quickly deal with WestShore, and Leraje activates her Robes of Nimrod, which negates the Flame Haze's bird creatures. She later catches Orobas, who has returned to his humanoid form, after he is sent flying by a kick from WestShore. The Flame Haze tells the two that she was waiting for Shana and Alastor's words. She tells them what she told Shana; to envision a great dream and take actions toward it.[7]

Leraje and Orobas are blocked from attacking by WestShore's geysers.[8]

Orobas and Leraje entering Xanadu

Leraje senses Rofocale performing Shōhi Ginsei along with everyone else in the area and listens to the God of Guidance, Shaher's voice, which talks about the Heir to Both Worlds. Later, after Xanadu had been created, Leraje and Orobas go to the Seireiden shrine, Saishuku no Shadan, and meet Bel Peol, Sydonay and the Snake of the Festival along with Barma, Haborym, Stolas, and Ose. After the Snake of the Festival tells the group to live on in the new world, Leraje and Orobas fly up to Xanadu's entrance along with Haborym, Stolas, Ose and Barma before being converted into Power of Existence.[9]
