Faust, Baira and Dr. Genome would soon join Varis on his mission to track Playmaker down and seize his Ignis. Unfortunately, Dr. Genome lost toThe Gore, Baira lost to Blue Angel and Faust lost to Playmaker. Varis honors their brave efforts that ultimately bought time for Varis. Just then, Dr. Kogami appears to Varis, asking if he has uncovered Playmaker's identity yet. Varis appears not to tell the truth. Dr. Kogami laments that he should never have experimented with the creation of self-aware artificial intelligence. He says this over a flashback to the manifestation of the Tower of Hanoi. Varis sees the tower and believes Playmaker may very well be drawn to resist. Varis awaits Playmaker, accusing him of being on the wrong side of history, and looks forward to eliminating him for good.
