Tatsumi then tries to defend Aria, unaware of the girl's true dark nature, but Leone revealed the contents of the "warehouse" as Tatsumi looks with horror and shock. Inside the warehouse were several tools of torture of all centuries, as dozens of corpses of elderly, men, women, children and infants were tortured and killed in all inhumane ways imaginable.
All people within the warehouse were killed by Aria and her parents for her to find all the people who came from outside the capital as unclean animals and had right to torture and to kill as many of them she wanted.
Tatsumi found out the truth of how Aria and her parents had an interest to attract people of the country to its place and torturing them to death, which was why Night Raid was dispatched to kill them. Tatsumi witnessed the death of his friend Sayo while Ieyasu was seen alive and suffering. Ieyasu explained that his pain was at the hands of the Aria's family.
