Summary[edit | edit source]
The story details the Varia's first job after the Cradle Affair and Xanxus's unfreezing from the Vongola Nono's Zero Point Breakthrough: First Edition. During that time, their job was to guard an island, which was managed by Ottavio, who was attacked by a mysterious armed organization. On that island, 150 people from the Vongola Famiglia's allied Famiglias were having a massive gathering. Due to the attack, all of them became hostages.
Ottavio panicked, and at that moment Xanxus appeared. He said that to aid in rescuing the hostages, he has already sent out the other Varia members. Ottavio warns him that it was useless with so little people, but Xanxus ignores him.
Following Xanxus' orders, Varia defeated the enemy. Ottavio, who originally respects Xanxus on the surface, starts to change. In reality, during the Cradle Incident, it was Ottavio who betrayed Xanxus to the Vongola Nono. Likewise, with the island's incident, the enemy was the Italian Army. It is revealed that Ottavio had a deal with the lower ranked soldiers to help him smuggle the Army's arms out to gain profit. This was discovered by the Army itself, and Ottavio casts away the people who came to him for help since they had already lost their usefulness.
The soldiers who got furious over this decide to attack the gathering to kill Ottavio, which was the cause for the island's incident. Xanxus finds out all about this, so Ottavio drops his respectful façade and summons a Gola Moska to defeat Xanxus, though it is an older model.
On Squalo and Mammon's side, Squalo realizes that Xanxus is in danger through the ache in the stump of his hand. Thus, Mammon goes back to help Xanxus whilst Squalo continued his mission.
During the battle, when Ottavio's Gola Moska spits flames at Xanxus, Mammon showed up and destroyed the back of the Moska, thus saving Xanxus. Afterward, Xanxus burnt Ottavio and all his present subordinates to death with his Flame of Wrath.
The story was the testimony given by CEDEF's spy, Moretti. Who, having nearly died in Xanxus' attack and witnessed brutality decides to support Tsuna in the Vongola Ring Conflict. The one who recorded this testimony was Oregano.
