Amagiri has warned her that she cannot use her ability flippantly, saying that she can only pay off her contract to a certain extent. Amber cares deeply about and has feelings for Hei, in spite of him believing her to be a traitor.

After he and Hei battle for the artifact known as the "meteor fragment" Nick disappears as soon as the artifact is activated. Apparently, the meteor fragment reacted with Hei and allowed him to make Nick's "dream" come true, which is to have a rocket which looks very comical to send both Nick who became a young boy in his dream and his sister to space.
