The egg was later delivered by Crom Cruach, much to everyone's surprise. The egg was also seen in Volume 20, being looked after by Ophis.

The hatched Spectre Dragons were seen in True Volume 3, each of which were around Ophis and Lilith's respectively, at the Grigori establishment, after Ophis sensed the mixed energies of hers, Great Red's, and Issei's.
