As revealed in Episode 8, Black Mask destroyed the seals scattered across Iria, two of which confined Languhiris and Bhafel. The dragons expressed their gratitude and agreed to help Black Mask in achieving his goals of destroying the Gods. Black Mask's interference with Iria may also have resulted Irinid's curse lifting as well as dramatic climate changes all across the continent, resulting the appearance of the Temple Ruins, Connous Oasis, Wandering Prison Ghosts, Shyllien Nature Reserve, and Hillwen Mine, as well as landscape changes around the Whirlpool Landmark, Silva Forest, and Barba.
An Unknown Man reports to Black Mask that the "seed has sprouted."
Later, Black Mask walks with a man in grey talking about the death of a certain someone.
After Bhafel pushes back the defending forces of the Shyllien Nature Reserve, Black Mask appears and orders the dragon to stop messing around and fall back, much to its dismay.
Black Mask is seen talking with the Black Dragon Knight. A Cessair then reports to Black Mask that the leader of the shamans, Akule, has been dealt with, but Black Mask states that they need to eliminate the rest of the shamans as they cannot leave everything to chance. Black Mask then dispatches Cessair's Heart and their followers to find the holy land of shamans.
Later, a Cessair reports that their enemies have completed the charm, nullifying their magic, but in return they have found The Holy Land of Shamans, and their enemies are now attempting to reclaim Hillwen Mine. Black Mask then has the Cessairs, the Black Dragon Knight, and Bhafel mobilize.
Black Mask, the Black Dragon Knight, and the Cessairs battle the Milletians, Millia, Maike, Dowra, and their forces at Zardine. Black Mask asks the Milletian to sacrifice themselves, stating that paradise will truly come if they do, but they refuse. Taking matters into his own hands, Black Mask and the Cessairs use their Red Eye magic to instantly subdue the Milletian to their knees and then transmogrify the other charmless Milletians into demons to attack everyone.
Black Mask, angered upon detecting a explosion that caused the disappearance of the Black Dragon Knight, Ruairi, tries to find a medium to a goddess' manifestation, and entrusts Cessair's Heart to continue their plans.
Black Mask appears in Connous Oasis where Millia found Ruairi and finally unmasks himself, revealing to be Tarlach, concerned for his best friend.
