Ryuko, Jade, and Arc had been risen back to the now-peaceful surface of Gaia by
Cale. Before they went anywhere, they buried Lazer and placed flowers at his
deathbed, then laid their weapons at the coastline to the Sea of the Dead, where
Shadow and Blade had both perished. Blackblade was stuck into the sand, and so
were Arc's metal knuckles and the mithril sword of Jade. They visited Pyrion on
the boat hire leading from Akuhei Island back to the mainland and went to Draco
Den. They found that more young dragons were now owned by the ranch, thanks to
the efforts of the two lovebirds, Sharpclaw and Crysta.
