Twelve years ago, two giant robots fought each other in the Kingdom of Rimgarde, causing massive destruction. In the present, two sisters, Rena and Yui, enjoy breakfast. Seeing Rena's annoyance at her taking on more responsibility despite being the younger sister, Yui invites to go out after school to cheer her up. However, as Rena waits for Yui to arrive from school, she is confronted by her old acquaintance Kei, whom tells her to come with her if she wants to learn what really happened twelve years ago. Rena calls Yui to say goodbye and leaves a present for her. At a harbor, Rena encounters Edmond Morales whom attacks her by fusing himself with a giant robot known as a Regalia Gear. To defend herself, Rena transforms herself into a giant robot but she is easily defeated. Yui, having followed Rena, then comes to her aid. Rena reveals to Yui that her real name is Magna Alecto and that she isn't human, causing her to believe that they can't stay together. Yui, however, states that even if they aren't blood related, they are family. Letting Yui pilot her, Magna Alecto is able to defeat the other Regalia Gear. Afterwards, Yui opens her present, a neckless containing the identical ring the two wore during their childhood. Later, Yui attends a press conference, revealing that she is actually the Empress of Enastoria, Yuinshiel Asteria.
