After Rico was dethroned by Fei in the tournament, the Battling Committee which was run by the Ethos Society arranged a special match for Rico and they rigged his Gear to malfunction and crash into the Kaiser's box seat. The incident lead to Rico being sentenced to execution after the Committee testified that Rico intentionally plowed Stier into grandstands in an attempt to kill the Kaiser. Rico was later rescued by Fei and along with Citan, Elly and Hammer they fled to freedom from Kislev.
