The battle between Asta and Paladin Yrul in Black Clover chapter 349 revealed to fans that canceling Asta’s magic can return the Paladins to normal emotions, opening the door to hope of saving Sister Lily.
Chapter 349 shows that Sister Lily as a Paladin doesn’t want to deal with Asta, but Lucius’ control forces her to go against her will. The chapter’s explanation reveals that Lucius Zogratis cannot fully control Sister Lily’s actions or emotions. Specifically he can only put a rule in the heads of the Paladins that “Lucius is right.” This made the Paladins completely obey his orders.
However, this means that the Paladins are not Lucius’ puppets as we think, they just cannot control and express their true feelings. In Black Clover chapter 349, Sister Lily cried while trying to kill Asta. Not wanting to do it herself, she kept asking Asta why he didn’t die sooner.
It is because of the principle of Lucius being always right that the Paladins must obey orders even if they do not want to, this causes the two personalities in Sister Lily to clash with each other. This proves that Lucius’ manipulation is not absolute and has created a huge hole in his perfect plan.
Black Clover chapter 349 revealed how the Paladins have retained their actual personalities and memories as both Sister Lily and Heath Grice recall their moments with Asta in the past. This meant that Lucius Zogratis’s magic didn’t brainwash but only penetrated their souls.
However it seems there is a magic that can overcome it, as evidenced by the fact that a while later Sister Lily didn’t show any of the same emotions and expressions as before. If it was the influence of Lucius’ magic then the battle would be much more difficult.

Only in Black Clover chapter 349 is it seen that Sister Lily’s true personality comes into conflict with her Paladin personality, meaning that their true personalities don’t disappear, just get repressed and over time do. The effect of this magic may be lost.
This detail can be an advantage for Asta’s side in the upcoming battle. However, it is still unknown if Asta can really turn Paladins back to normal, which probably still needs the following chapters to come out for the most accurate answer.
