Mass for the Dead Arc[edit | edit source]
- Main article: Mass for the Dead Arc
After Eight Fingers collapse, Malmvist found himself without a job and switched his talents as a worker. At a bar with Six Arms, they were approached by Hilma who invited Six Arms to work at E-Rantel her using her new position at the Pharmacist's Guild. Zero not wanting to be indebt to her refused. Zero intended to build a new organization with his comrades in Six Arms. Malmvist became the head of the gambling, banking, and assassination trade in Zero's nascent criminal empire. The criminal empire started slow but was gaining momentum however he and his comrades lost and their noble backers as the Kingdom was cracking down on all illegal activities as part of their concessions to the new Tripartite Alliance. Though this set Six Arms back, Succulent brought news of the large amount of goods being transferred to the city of E-Rantel. The information opened a new opportunity to head to E-Rantel as it was apparent that the border city was becoming the new center of the world. Later in order to destabilize the Tripartite Alliance, Zero made a deal with Zurrernorn to complete their Death Spiral ritual. The criminal kept his comrades in Six Arms out of the loop of the plan but they followed his direction and worked with him to guard the site of the ritual thinking it was just a normal job. In the ensuing chaos, Davernoch was killed and Zero escaped, leaving Malmvist and the others to be arrested for the incident by Blue Roses and their allies.
Once Zero defected to the Baharuth Empire, he gained amnesty for himself and by extension his comrades, allowing the surviving members of Six Arms to be acquitted of their crimes. They acted as a unit to train and lead a group of workers to fight against a horde of Chaos Beasts that were heading towards E-Rantel. Zero was ordered by the emperor to lead the monsters into the Quarry where the imperial knights would box the Chaos Beasts and eliminate them. Zero followed his orders to the letter but when the reinforcements came he expected them to join in the fray. They did not and Zero suspected something was off. He then called his comrades to get off the quarry floor. That action saved their lives as the quarry floor was broken apart by a mechanism activated by the knights, causing the workers and Chaos Beasts to fall into the Melting Pot. The trap dissolved everyone that fell into the pit killing them. Zero friends who survived the trap watched in horror at the lengths of which the Bloody Emperor would use to achieve victory. On the contrary Zero praised the action as the best method worthy of a leader.

- Rose Thorn: This weapon's tip is covered in a mixture of several deadly poisons, and the rapier itself is imbued with two complementary spells.

Quotes[edit | edit source]
- (To Zero): "Well, you're not a good comparison, boss...still, our enemy can break down a steel-reinforced door. While Succulent was the weakest of us, that still means he took down a member of Six Arms. Should we take him as a potential enemy, then?"
- (To Sebas Tian): "This is it!!! This must be the magic item that's making you stronger!!!"
