"The Elf of the Forest" is the second episode of the third season of The Familiar of Zero.

Saito begins training daily with the Knights of Ordine. This leads to him to not have as much time with Louise, arousing her jealousy once again. Matters only become worse when Tiffania shows up as a transfer student at the academy. A student named Beatrice, who is revealed as royalty, becomes suspicious of Tiffania when she refuses to remove her hat. After telling her that she will remove the hat eventually, Tiffania decides to reveal her true identity as a half-elf. Upon the revelation, Beatrice proclaims that she has the authority of the Pope and insists that Tiffania be put through a heretical interrogation. She proclaims that if Tiffania believes in the true God, she will be able to step into a pot of boiling water she has had prepared. Saito shows up to stop her, but upon hearing from Guiche that Louise would be in trouble he interferes, begging Beatrice to stop. Upon her refusal, Saito draws his sword against her and the dragon knights in her command. The rest of Knights of Ordine join and a battle ensues. Louise is roused from her sleep by the noise from the battle. She proceeds to end the battle by exploding everyone, including Saito. Later, Tiffania shows up at Saito's bed and ask him to check her breasts to see if he believes they are real. Louise and Siesta show up in time to witness this, and as a result, Louise proceeds to beat Saito with Siesta's approval.
