  1. 1   I'm going to town, so keep watch over the house, will you?
  2.     Okaaay!
  3.  
  4. 2   Also... I always say this, but you musn't go into the room with the book on the second floor by yourself, all right? Got it?
  5.     ... Got it!
  6.  
  7.  
  8.  
  9.  
  10.  
  11.  
  12. 3   Have a nice trip!
  13.  
  14. 12  Its legend has weaved many a tale...
  15.     Among these tales that are as many as there are stars in the sky may lie hidden records that have really happened.
  16.     Or perhaps, they may all be mere fairy tale fabrications...
  17.     Of one of those many tales... I will write down as much as I know...
  18.  
  19. 13  That tale begins thus...
  20.  
  21. 14  Going as far as collecting driftwood to use as firewood... Just how stingy is our church...?
  22.  
  23. 15  The High Priest said something about it being part of training... but this sort of thing can't be training, can it...
  24.  
  25. 16  ...Hm?
  26.  
  27. 17  Y... youch...
  28.  
  29. 18  Then... "this" is what that priest brought in from the shore...
  30.  
  31. 19  Yes... that is indeed so, Your Majesty.
  32.  
  33. 20  Judging from his appeareances, he seems to be from Elnoa, but...
  34. Does his being in the morgue mean he is already dead?
  35.  
  36. 21  It would seem... that he yet draws breath...
  37.     What?!
  38.  
  39. 22  According to the priest who carried him over, at the time of his discovery, his limbs were coming apart and more than half of his head destroyed...
  40.  
  41. 23  By the time the priest had returned to report to the castle knights, he had already regenerated enough to once again have human form... Around 3 to 4 hours should have passed...
  42.  
  43. 24  Which means he's regenerating at a frightening pace... Magic?
  44.     While it does appear to be revival magic...
  45.  
  46. 25  In the case of revival magic used by priests, drawing from the power of the elemental spirits lets the practitioner reconstruct based on the memories and experiences of the subject by accelerating their healing potential. However... In a condition where most of the head, which holds the memories that are the blueprints of the body, is lost, regenerating should not be possible...
  47.  
  48. 26  Then, just what...?
  49.     The mages at the research institute have said something of interest...
  50.  
  51. 27  That this is forbidden magic sealed in the times of the Ancients... That it was called "life magic" or at times "dark magic".
  52.     What!?
  53.  
  54. 28  Furthermore... as he is in possession of such an object, I had thought it necessary to inform Your Majesty... Naturally, only some of the royal knights and mages have been informed.
  55.  
  56. 29  ... This is... an ancient device?
  57.    
  58. That seems to be the case, but... Although we have made a thorough search in the documents of the castle, we could not find anything of relevance and have no idea what it could be.
  59.  
  60. 30  Move everything from this room immediately to the magic institute's research facilities and determine that they are. Deal with it as strictly confidential matter deal and do not let information leak.
  61.  
  62.     ... Certainly.
  63.  
  64. 31  ... I only hope that this is not a sign of disasters to come...
  65.  
  66.  
  67.  
  68.  
  69. 33  ~Two Years Later~
  70.  
  71. 34  Here I come!!
  72.  
  73. 35  You won't be dodging this with mere acrobatics!!
  74.  
  75. 39  N... not good!
  76.  
  77. 40  Yeeeeey!!
  78.  
  79.  
  80.  
  81.  
  82. 43  I of all people let out my whole strength without thinking... Oh dear, how shameful of me. Are you alright, Sir Max?
  83.  
  84. 45  Sir Varios, it's just training, so please hold back a little~
  85.     I'm the one who has to take care of him and heal his injuries after all.
  86.  
  87. 46  You don't need to tell me. I just used a little bit too much force.
  88.  
  89.     I'm really asking you here, Captain of the Knights.
  90.  
  91. 47  I made my deluxe stew, so let's eat, Max. Get changed and let's go.
  92.  
  93.  
  94.  
  95.  
  96. 50  He's just like a child...
  97.  
  98.     Say, Lowe... Max, how do you see him?
  99.  
  100. 51  Sir Varios, you should already know that Max's body isn't normal, right?
  101.  
  102.     No... not about that...
  103.  
  104. 52  He's usually showing a childlike innocent smile, but what he shows sometimes when it's time to fight is something like a spine-chilling aura that is somewhere between "vigor" and "bloodthirst"...
  105.  
  106. 53  I can't help but wonder, "what exactly is he?"
  107.  
  108. 54  To be continued!!
  109.  
  110.     Probably...
