As Kirito and Asuna investigate the murder, they deduce that there may be an unknown player killer , and they learn that Yolko and her boyfriend Caynz were formerly members of a now-disbanded guild called Golden Apple.

Griselda was killed six months ago while attempting to sell a valuable ring she obtained from defeating a boss. After realizing that Grimlock may be the suspect, Yolko is abruptly killed by a knife thrown through the window.
