Our hero finds love during a lull in the war. A young woman who once called herself a part of the Arch-Ender's Demiphants abandons the insane ruler's forces and joins the Unity Axis. She provides a vast range of information allowing the Unity Axis to gain the advantage in the war. Our hero and his lover spend their days training each others powers to grow even stronger. During a co-op mission, the duo returns to the village in the forest only to find that it has been reduced to rubble by the Arch-Ender himself. The Unity Axis retreats to a secluded rift on a far-off continent.
Meanwhile, the forces of the Arch-Ender launch an all-out assault on one of the Axis' main military complexes. The site is nearly destroyed and the morale of the Axis' troops begin to dwindle rapidly. With the Arch-Ender's power on the rise once more, the people of Gloom begin to submit to his terrible will or face death. The mad man rescinds his ideals of enslavement and total control, instead his mind gives birth to the idea of total annihilation of the planet Gloom. As long as he can destroy the world, he can destroy the Unender.
