Dusty Sky is the 44th chapter of Jun Mochizuki's Pandora Hearts.


Oz, Alice, Gilbert and Sharon follow Rufus' guide, Grüner, through a forest outside of Toll to reach Rytas' estate, which is where Rufus said that the Second Sealing Stone was.

As they enter, the five are confronted by a woman, who attacks them swiftly with her hack saw. Soon they realize that their Chains' powers will not work within the presence of the Seal, making it so they can't even be summoned. Oz figures out that the woman can seemingly be in a new location within seconds because she is manipulating the power of mirrors on the estate.

Just as the woman was about to deliver the finishing blow to Oz, he unlocked B-Rabbit's power himself and destroyed her weapon and pinned her down. Oz then summoned B-Rabbit's scythe and prepares to kill the woman in a state of insanity, though he is stopped by Alice who put her arms around Oz and scolded him for using her power. As the scythe vanishes, Rytas comes forward and orders the woman, Marie, to stop as he will lead them to the Sealing Stone.

Rytas reveals that his mother was a mage, one of the five manipulators of magic to seal Glen Baskerville through Jack Vessalius and that Jack told her that "he who wields B-Rabbit, will surely come to your aid."

Rytas gives Oz clues to find the next Seal as Oz, Alice, Gil and Sharon leave for Toll to contact Rufus, Grüner staying to protect Rytas and Marie, as well as the Seal. As soon as they leave though, the mansion is infiltrated by someone. Someone who decapitates Rytas, Marie and Grüner with ease, the Head Hunter...
