Vladilena Milizé (also known as Lena) starts her duties as the handler of the Spearhead Squadron in "86 Eighty-Six" Episode 2. This will be her first encounter with the captain of the squad named Undertaker who is infamous for driving his past handlers insane. The new episode is titled "Spearhead."

The official synopsis for "86 Eighty-Six" Episode 2 teases Lena’s first mission with the Spearhead Squadron, a unit of Colorata (also known as Eighty-Six) that belongs to the 86th district. The changing of handlers is a regular affair for the Eighty-Six.

The members of Spearhead Squadron are surprised to see Lena, an Alba, willing to talk to them. Meanwhile, the Legion can attack the district anytime but the members of the squad venture out to get food.

Later, in "86 Eighty-Six" Episode 2, the Spearhead Squadron receives an update about an enemy attack from Theo via Para-RAID, which is a neural device connected to the neck of handlers and the soldiers.

“Called ‘Juggernaut’, these are the unmanned combat drones developed by the Republic of San Magnolia in answer to the attacks by the autonomous unmanned drones of the neighboring Empire of Giad, the “Legion”. But they’re only unmanned in name. In reality, they are piloted by the Eighty-sixers—those considered to be less than human and treated as mere tools. Determined to achieve his own mysterious ends, Shin, the captain of Spearhead Squadron, which is comprised of Eighty-sixers, continues to fight a hopeless war on a battlefield where only death awaits him,” the official series synopsis read, as per Crunchyroll.
