Chapter 12. Tricks (Patroklos)
The time has come. As malfested killed more and more people, the Portal was growing larger and larger. The giant palace appeared from it. Shadows were around it.
Patroklos commanded his people to summon as many unmalfested as they could. Thus, Aeon Calcos and many others joined them. But the Schwartzwind required some way to go back to Europe, and surprisingly, Cervantes' ship, The Adrian, came out of hell to help them. As Schwartzwind got to Europe, it was all burning. The war devoured it. Heroes proceeded to the Palace, and fought their way inside. The huge army was battling the malfested on the ground. As they march on, they encounter Zasalamel and defeat him.
When the group finally reached the Palace's top floor, they saw shadowy entity and Inferno.
Chapter 13. Enlight the Shadows (Patroklos)
Surge of rage run through Patroklos. Shadowy creature stood before him. Out of sudden, Ivan and Ahmed appeared on the side of heroes. Inferno commanded shadowy creature to kill Patroklos, and thus, a fight started. As Patroklos impaled shadowy creature, it disappeared.
Inferno was his next target. But when Patroklos was about to deliver a finishing blow, Zasalamel appeared again. He asked Patroklos not to use Soul Calibur on Inferno because Inferno will absorb Elysium and become whole once again. He will be given control over the shards of Soul Edge what would normally help people to defeat Inferno. With these words, Zasalamel dies.
Patroklos didn't listen. He struck Inferno with Soul Calibur...
Chapter 14. As You Wish (Kilik)
Inferno got his power back. With a fingerklick, he sent Patroklos into Chaos, and defeated the entire team. Inferno commanded Kilit to finish them off, thinking that exposure to Chaos broke Kilik's will. Inferno said to Kilik: "Kill the ones you want to kill...". "As you wish" was the answer, and Kilik stepped into battle with Inferno. He was almost killed in the battle, but Edge Master appeared. "Evil spirit! If you want to kill my student, you'll have to get through me!" - he said, and the same words were repeated by all, even Nightmare. Inferno smiled. "As you wish..."
Chapter 15. What Lies Inside (Patroklos)
Patroklos was flying around Chaos. His will was almost broken, and he was almost dead. But suddenly, two spirits approached him. They were Siegfried and Olcadan.
- Patroklos, awaken! Our world needs you! - Siegfried said.
- I don't have Soul Calibur... - was the answer.
- Don't rely on your weapon but on your own will. Now, go. - Olcadan said.
Patroklos fell down from the sky, directly into the palace. All his friends were defeated, and several members of malfested were about to finish them off. Patroklos ran up to them. He defeated Tira and all loyal Soul Edge's servants. Inferno will be next.
Chapter 16. Era's End (Patroklos)
Patroklos was ready. Inferno appeared before him, and they finally clashed. As the fight proceeded, they teleported into Chaos and continued the fight there. After being almost defeated, Inferno suddenly impaled Patroklos with his power:
- I have full power now! No way you can win!
- You're not yet complete... You don't have this! - and with these words, Patroklos used his soul to take Soul Calibur and Soul Edge from Inferno. He impaled the demon and threw him of the platform they were standing on. Patroklos used his soul to return back to reality, and portal to Chaos closed forever.
The text-only epilogue says: "The malfested are gone, the era of swords and souls has ended. Now, time has come for new era."
