Succession Contest arc
On the ninth day of the Black Whale's departure, Rice answers the door when Prince Benjamin's personal soldier Shikaku rings the doorbell to the Seventh Prince's room. He asks Shikaku for his purpose, but Shikaku merely salutes and declares his loyalty to Prince Benjamin, before shooting himself in the head. Rice is visibly shaken and perplexed by the sudden suicide.
