Allen Walker and his golem, Timcanpy have recently arrived in London, planning to visit the Black Order Headquarters. Meanwhile, Officers Moore and Chales are investigating a supposedly haunted church. While searching this abandoned building, Moore and Chales are separated due to Allen's "kidnapping" of Moa. After he is handcuffed to a chair, Allen tries to explain his situation to Moa when Charles is suddenly killed. Since Moa was unconscious due to the attack, Allen is suspected of Chales's death. Allen attempts to tell the chief that an akuma killed Charles and that he would like to help. However, due to the disbelief of the chief, Allen is placed under house arrest while the rest of the police unit investigate the church themselves.
