Almata broke with the underworld rules set by Heiyue and rapidly expands its force by hiring jaeger dropouts and offenders of serious crimes. The CID and Bracer Guild have dispatched people to investigate, but many of these insiders disappeared without a trace.
In Episode: "Beyond the Reverie, And the Sword Maiden Moves On" 創まりの先へ, そして、乙女は剣を手に進み続ける, in September of S. 1207, Bracer Guild member Elaine Auclair, while on the hunt for two missing children kidnapped by a low-level organized crime syndicate, was able to track down the syndicate. After defeating and subduing most of their members, the leader of Almata, Gerard Dantes, appeared. (Almata was only referred to by A in this scene and Dantes name was never given.) Dantes came to clean up after the syndicate which Almata had considered as a potential subcontractor, due to him being disappointed in them for being outwitted and found out by the CID. Capable of hiding his presence to prevent Elaine from seeing his face, Dantes executed all of the syndicate's members effortlessly, though he spared the kidnapped children and informed Elaine of where she would find them unharmed. He claimed to be pursuing the "ultimate fear", and called fear the driving force beyond existence, before escaping.
