When Charden Flamberg and Kyoko Kirisaki come to meet with Gyanza, they are instead confronted by Gilberth, Victor, and Merle. They explain that Gyanza won't be showing up and that Charden has something that they want. Charden then gives them the Spirit Water and they run off. Gilberth who wanted to gain power like his "Big Bro Gyanza" drank the spirit water. Only to die whilst awakening his power.
