|Arc||VS. Holy Sol Temple arc|
The Shadow Born from the Divine Light (神光が生む影, Shinkō ga Umu Kage) is the one hundredth and twenty fifth chapter of the Fire Force manga series.
The chapter opens with Benimaru still sprawled on the ground outside The Holy See. While the monk belittles the Captain's weakness and Joker questions how he was able to subdue the strongest member of the Fire Force. Before they can continue, Benimaru's body begins to smoke and flame and he struggles to his feet. The monk is shocked that he is still able to move and is quickly defeated by Benimaru. Joker picks up the monk's blowpipe and realises that he had attacked Benimaru with a poison dart.
The pair wonder why Benimaru is still able to move after being poisoned but continue their assault and completely dismiss the consequences of their actions. Joker casual walks behind as Benimaru blasts his way through the remaining monks, grinning about how much fun it is to attack the Holy Sol Temple unarmed. Joker and Benimaru kick down the church door down and find it completely abandoned.
Joker explains that the members of the Church have fled into the Netherworld. Benimaru reminds him that the church consider the Nether to be a forbidden area, but Joker claims that the Church are simply preventing others from using the underground realm. Which the Holy Sol Temple want to keep for themselves. Joker reveals the hidden passageway to the Nether and leads Benimaru into the darkness.
Benimaru finally demands that Joker explain himself before they continue, which Joker casually dismisses. The Company 7 captain grabs Joker's collar and tells the criminal to stop testing his patience. Joker slaps his hand away and tell Benimaru to stop trying testing his patience. However, Joker does tell his ally that he was once a member of the church until he learnt something. He was not like the monks or priests they have encountered before, instead, he was part of the church's 'dark side'.
As they continue to search of the 'True Sacred Scriptures', the lights go out and the sound of footsteps echo towards them. Joker warns The Destroyer that those coming towards them from the darkness will be unlike everyone they have faced until now. The Smoking Man lights one of his cigarettes and uses it in combination with his abilities to illuminate the room: revealing The Shadows of the Holy Sun. A group of mysterious harlequin-like figures with their hands clasped in a prayer gesture. Joker grins and says that 'this' is where he came from.
