|Title:||Ginyuu Mokushiroku Meine Liebe|
|Flashback: The Viscount of Braunschweig has no heir as his wife has given birth only to three daughters. But when he decides to let bastard son Edward live as a member of his own family the boy gets to feel the hatred of their new mother who'll never forgive her husband for this humiliation. Edward's sister was given away to a foreign family as to allow her leading a happy life.
Back in present time, Orpherus and Edward walk the streets of the village when they suddenly meet a young woman chased by thugs; the academy members can easily drive away these people. When this girl tells her story she resembles Edward very much of his long-lost sister. Edward visits this girl and brings her flowers; Ludwig suspects the son is about to repeat the flaws of his father.
Later Edward detects a letter from this girl in his uniform pocket, asking him to meet her at night - and shortly after the academy direction has been informed that one of their scholars might have left the institute without permission...

More background story of Edward and his childhood friend Orpherus, and again all five Strahl candidates are interrelated in a strange way. Ludwig's short appearances are stunning - he never says any meaningless word, he correctly identifies his opportunities and he doesn't hesitate to take his chance.
