Dragunov fought and defeated Amadeus and obtained the box, but an explosion caused a soldier to drop it in confusion, making the mission a failure.
While loyal to the Ptolemaic Army initially, Dragunov begins to question the Army's leadership after discovering the human experimentation of the high-ranking Ptolemaic officer Mira. Dragunov eventually decides to defect from the army and spearheads the Ptolemaic rebellion against Ptolemaios.
While Dragunov was training with Veronica and Sisilia, the base was attacked by Izabella and Navy of the Rebel Army, the former of whom had taken an interest in Sisilia and wanted to play with her. Dragunov and Veronica fight against the Rebel Army officers but are defeated, allowing Izabella to claim Sisilia. However, Sisilia then demonstrates her ability to help her allies to Navy by playing music, which revitalizes Dragunov and Veronica. Though Izabella wanted to continue the fight, Navy decides to not risk battling against the rejuvenated Ptolemaics and retreats, dragging Izabella with her.

Caroline informs Dragunov that she and Towa were looking at the Tani Oh, but Dragunov refuses to let her go. However, after a Special Forces soldier appears to deliver a message to Dragunov, Dragunov allows Caroline to go and instructs Towa to accompany her. As the two mechanics leave, Dragunov smirks on how Caroline is hard to control. Yoshino steps in and states that Towa seems like a nice, honest girl who has guts to steal from them, before noticing how Dragunov is wary of how the messenger and the commander-in-chief's instruct from the shadows.

Dragunov later finds Mira, who had just killed several Rebel Army soldiers, and asks her what she intends to do with their corpses. Mira tells Dragunov she intends to revive them and playfully offers her some to use as subjects, but Dragunov declines her offer and leaves. Dragunov then remembers an event from the early stages of the Ptolemaic Army, when she saved a soldier from three Rebel soldiers and killed one of them, scaring the other two off. Dragunov also remembers how she met Caroline that day, when some soldiers brought Caroline to her and told Dragunov of her inventions. After Caroline showed Dragunov a Patrol Robot she repaired and fixed her rifle, Dragunov became impressed with the young mechanic.
Later, Dragunov and Yoshino are shown by Caroline the Rebel Army's Sergeant Drill, which was being used by Allen O' Neil. The two are eager to get revenge on Allen, but are stopped by Caroline, who comments that they are being reckless.

Dragunov sighs, prompting Yoshino to tell her that there's nothing to lose and everyone in the army is willing to protect her. Dragunov then recalls her memory of the time she first met Yoshino, when the two battled each other to a draw. Dragunov offered Yoshino a chance to join the Ptolemaic Army but Yoshino refused at first. Later, after deciding she had no where else to go, Yoshino took up Dragunov's offer and joined the Ptolemaics.
The three soon are faced with Allen O' Neil and Destrade. While Allen went to get the Sergeant Drill, Dragunov pursued him. Allen O'Neil reaches the Sergeant Drill and uses it against Dragunov, nearly killing her if she were not saved by Caroline with several ShootingRays. Dragunov asks Caroline how they can take the machine down, to which Caroline says she is unsure but has an idea. While Dragunov distracted Allen, Caroline gets close to the Sergeant Drill with her ShootingRays and sabotages the machine's engine. As Allen faces the two Yoshino arrives, having defeated Destrade. Before Allen can fight all three himself a soldier arrives and tells him that Morden has ordered an emergency council. Thus, Allen retreats and abandons the Sergeant Drill. Having obtained what they came for, Dragunov thanks Caroline for her assistance, much to her delight.
Dragunov later calls secret meeting between several members of the Ptolemaic Army, including Towa and Simon. She then tells the group that they will be taking control of the Ptolemaic Army from Ptolemaios and Mira, as she is distrustful of the two's mysterious intentions. Towa is surprised to hear this but agrees to assist Dragunov in her rebellion against Ptolemaios. In the secret Dragunov tries to find a hidden laboratory. She notes that she needs contact a fellow who is out on an expedition. Yoshino then shows up and asks Dragunov to take a short break to check on the new hover unit Caroline and Towa are building. Dragunov is at first reluctant, but Yoshino asks her to check in anyways since they're using her money for the task. Dragunov arrives then arrives at the workshop and is unimpressed with their work. She orders the two to kneel in ten seconds, confusing Caroline.
While at the sea with Yoshino, Dragunov is told by her that she has taught Sho the secret skill and that he is worthy of her pride. Dragunov responds by telling her she should say that to Sho in person.
