"Till Death Apart Us"
Prior to the events of the war, Barkiss meets his next fiance in the form of Other Mother, however he was suspicious about her appearance: buttons have replaced her eyes. Wanting to impress the nobleman, the Beldam offers her wedding offer, a box of sewing buttons. She explained that if he wants to stay with her, he must sew buttons in his eyes. Barkiss of course refuses. Angered then, the Other Mother reveals her true form and attempt to take her ex-fiance's life. But Barkiss isn't going down without a fight and he grabs a sword to fight her. He manages to slice her hand, only to his shock that the hand was moving and also scratched his skin. Furious, Barkiss throws a rock to the moving hand, destroying it. However, Lord Barkiss had to deal with his previous lover, as she called the Other Mr. Bobinsky to end his life once and for all. Barkiss had enough time to scream before he was killed by the Other Mother and her henchman.
