In fear of Kojou's limitless destructive potential, the Lion King Organization sent an apprentice sword shaman, Yukina Himeragi, to observe Kojou and report her findings back to the organization.

Sometime later in the anime, Lilith Asami appeared in front of Arata while she was investigating the Breakdown Phenomenon. This caused Arata's artificial world to disintegrate.
