After taking a short summer break, Arvil comes back for a date with Kazuya to the movies. After the movie was over she finds the same clock tower where the Leviathan is rumored to be. (Image Source)
From the beginning, the Leviathan’s true identity after an outsider tries to investigate has died seemed so fishy. Alchemy has always been a rather dubious tradition to transform metals into gold, immortality, and possibly create artificial life. As everyone knows, a person cannot create something out of nothing since it’s not physically possible. While some believed that Alchemy is real, Victorique thinks the opposite as she berates them as idiots and later finds out that it was used as a cover up for the Leviathan.
As Victorique finds out after gathering the facts, she finds out that the Leviathan is a sham. As the “African Song” suggests, Sauville took advantage of the gold rush and created a colony in Africa. They used the Africans to secretly move the gold, hid it in a special place and buried them. The Leviathan eventually came out of the ground and concealed himself to gain the trust to the king through the cover up of alchemy. He took advantage of the gold that was hidden to make it seem like he is creating it. He also used blue dye to make a white rose blue to impress the queen. When everyone tries to unmask him, he used the gold to kill Ian, the king’s brother to protect his identity. It seems clever, but the reason why he wants to get close with the king is still unknown and possibly we will never know. All we know is that he has a vengeful heart at the end and died remorsefully in the hidden vault.
For the first time in the show, I never had seen Arvil be so happy when she attempts to solve the mystery of the Leviathan. Somehow, her personality seems to be so cheerful when it comes to ghost stories that she can’t resist. Also, considering that she is in competition with Victorique to win over Kazuya, it’s obvious that she wants to solve the case first, even if she is at a disadvantage. Competition was so fierce that having Arvil sit behind Victorique was a very bad idea since it only makes the existence of a love triangle even worse… Then again, Arvil should be the one apologizing since she provoked her out of jealousy and not knowing much about her.
Overall, the mystery of finding the Leviathan’s true identity was a rather interesting one since it was loosely related to Victorique’s family. The Leviathan’s failure to create an army for the King is the mere reason why Victorique was born. This way, he would have another tool for the storm. In addition, Arvil’s involvement with the case did spice things up from the usual mysteries since she has a cute personality, even if she is disadvantaged by Victorique’s cuteness by a long shot. ¶
