The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 131
50. Founding of the Federation of Humanity!
The news of establishing Roman as a public enemy while at the same time establishing the Humanity Federation quickly spread throughout the eastern continent.
Then, some of the countries that continued to hesitate sent envoys to Ignit.
With the persuasion of the southern countries that made a secret agreement, they finally decided to turn Roman into an enemy.
As if it had been promised, most of the countries in the southern part of the eastern continent sent envoys to Ignit, and the countries in the central part were thrown into chaos.
Kariel puts a blue flag on the map of the eastern continent with a satisfied expression.
Finally, as the southern region of the East Continent formed an alliance with Ignit, the human alliance envisioned in the beginning was completed.
Even more encouraging is that even Roman’s allies are beginning to waver.
“Roman is slower than expected.”
“It was effective to shake Roman directly.”
At Kariel’s words, Tarion answered while looking at the map.
Sending a spy inside Roman to directly shake it.
Because of that, while Ignit was unable to do its best to secure allies, it was unable to fully secure even allies in the central region while Ignit captured the southern countries of the eastern continent.
“Can we bring them into the Human Federation?”
“It will be difficult. According to intelligence, many of these countries were already aware of the existence of demons.”
Kariel’s expression frowned at Tarion’s words.
“That is… … .”
“There is a possibility that he made a secret pact with the demons.”
To tolerate Roman even though he knew the demons, it was highly likely that he had signed a contract directly with the demons.
I don’t know what he promised, but what is certain is that the chances of joining the League of Humanity are slim.
“Still, there is hope for some of the countries in the Central Region.”
“Choose countries with potential. Now is the time to focus on them.”
Tarion went out immediately at Kariel’s command.
Then, this time, I called the chief.
“Is it possible to shake Roman directly?”
“I don’t know.”
Cariel said as he shook his head and looked at the servant chief speaking.
“after… … It would be nice to have solid evidence… … .”
“I still have something to tell you about it.”
When Kariel’s permission was granted, the valet took out a horn from his bosom.
“It is the horn of a demon.”
Surt, who appeared as he stirred the space at the words of the chieftain, wrinkled his nose.
– He’s not a real demon.
Kariel put on a disappointed expression at Surt’s words.
“for a moment… … That’s… … .”
He nodded as if he knew what the chieftain was.
“A half demon?”
“Yes, not those who simply signed a contract with the demons, but those who received the hearts of the demons. They call themselves demons, but they are mixed blood, not official demons.”
-Did you call them half demons?
Surt muttered, ‘Isn’t that just a mongrel?’, but Kariel ignored the words and looked at the chamberlain.
“They called this half-demon.”
Kariel smiled wryly at the question of the chamberlain.
They were none other than beings that had been experienced in previous lives.
“I just called Mine… … .”
“I used to call it that.”
Kariel, who nodded slightly at the words of the chief chamberlain, gestured as if to explain more.
“The half demons are also similar to the demons. They are just closer to humans than demons.”
A black horn in the hand of the chief chamberlain. There were different jewels attached to them according to their properties.
A jewel in which mana is crystallized with elemental power.
Even though they had horns of the same shape as the demons, their appearance was still close to that of humans, so they were rejected even by the demons.
It would be nice to have strong power right away, but in the end, those who were no different from the demons’ slaves were demons in their previous lives.
It was the demons that bothered the humans the most, who resisted to the end because they wanted to be superior to humans on such a subject.
“To become half demons, you need the heart of a demon or a large amount of magic. What is interesting is that there are records that many humans were turned into anti-demons. But a lot of the records are gone, and we don’t know how that’s possible.”
At the words of the valet, Kariel sighed and muttered.
“The demons do not bury the body.”
At Kariel’s words, Tarion tilted his head and asked.
“They separate the hearts and crystals of magic from the corpses of the dead demons and store them in a specific place. It is like a grave.”
“ah… … .”
“More than anything else, those madmen even make weapons using the corpses of their own people. They have no kin consciousness.”
Kariel shook her head as if she was fed up.
Crazy bastards with only power.
If there was a usable part of the body of the people, they were lunatics who did not hesitate to use it.
“If it’s the hearts of the demons, there’s probably a lot of them to rot. In other words, there is enough left over to turn humans into half demons.”
“How could His Majesty do this… … .”
When the head chamberlain asked with an admiring expression, Kariel silently tapped her forehead.
Then, as if understood, Tarion and the chamberlain nodded at the same time.
It is something I know from previous life experiences, but I explained to the chamberlain that I was able to see some of the hero’s memories from the past.
In any case, it was not completely false, as I knew it from past experience.
“More than anything else, a human who has just died can be turned into an undead if he transplants the heart of a demon.”
“For this reason, the kingdom… … .”
Tharion nodded as if he had finally understood.
The kingdom that had tormented the empire the most.
I could see why Kariel wanted to preserve their power as fully as possible.
Since the power that is the most opposite of Magi is the divine power, they want to preserve their power as much as possible.
“War will be possible only with our own strength. But there is nothing more sacred than post-processing.”
Through the experiences of his past life, he had suffered deeply that winning the war was not the only skill.
That is why Kariel was going to give preference to all the temples that believed in different gods even in the Humanity Federation.
The Empire is a temple of fire, but there was no intention of forcing it on other countries. Religion is excluded as much as possible from the League of Humanity.
They will use their divine powers to the fullest while respecting all beliefs.
So, knowing that the Temple of Fire would be disappointing, he allowed Seongguk to operate within the Empire.
Southern beliefs also allowed it.
“after… … Anyway, if this is the case, there’s no need to drag it any longer. By releasing this evidence, we are officially announcing the Federation of Humanity.”
At Kariel’s command, Tharion and the maid bowed their heads and went outside.
* * *
That day, Tarion immediately summoned reporters to the public and made a presentation. As if there was no need to wait, he presented the demon horns as evidence, and it was Roman who obtained this.
Then a reporter raised his hand and said:
“Is that an official acknowledgment that Ignit sent a spy to the Roman land?”
To the reporter’s question, Tarion said it was natural.
“We think that Roman joined hands with the demons. In such a situation, isn’t it natural to look for demons inside Roman?”
“that… … .”
“Roman ignored all our letters. Is there any reason why we should respect Roman like that?”
The man who appeared to be a reporter from the Roman side hurriedly lowered his head.
Tarion looked away from him and said while looking at the other reporters.
“By the way, as a result of investigating past cases with historians, it turned out that this was what was called the ‘half demon’.”
“What is it?”
As everyone tilted their heads in bewilderment, Tarion quickly explained their existence.
“Your Majesty has decided to call them ‘Main’. They are no different from the demon worshipers who sold their souls to the devil. Roman who tolerated such people is the enemy of mankind.”
Tharion exclaimed, holding a piece of paper in one hand and raised his hand.
“Your Majesty wanted to officially form the Humanity Federation. All the southern countries of the eastern continent have already agreed to participate. The inauguration ceremony of the League of Humanity will be held in Aisa, a neutral country. Exactly one month later, together with the allies, the League of Humanity will be formed.”
Having said that, Tarion looked at reporters from the eastern continent and said.
“It’s not too late yet. If you would like to join the Alliance to Protect Humanity, please visit Ignit any time. We welcome you.”
At Tarion’s announcement, reporters from the East Continent began to murmur.
Tarion looked at the scene with satisfaction and went down from the podium with a smile.
“Is that good enough?”
Kariel, who secretly watched the scene from afar, smiled.
While serving as the head of the intelligence department, he showed himself quite a bit at public events, and now he spoke well without stuttering.
Even when he first took charge of the intelligence department, his nervous expression was evident, but now he can no longer find such an expression.
“How are you?”
Tarion blushes while clearing his throat at Kariel’s praise.
Seeing him like that, Toto and other guards crumpled their faces as if they saw something they couldn’t see.
It was because it was not good to see the uncle twisting his body as if he was ashamed.
“Shake the center as much as possible until the launching ceremony of the Human Federation.”
At Kariel’s command, Tarion bowed his head.
Is it because it has become easier to operate in the East Continent by forging alliances with the southern countries of the East Continent?
A large number of shadows were able to enter the eastern continent, and thanks to that, the number of contact with countries located in the middle of the eastern continent was significantly increased compared to before.
“Don’t be greedy. You don’t even need many countries. Even if you properly attract one country, it will only take a moment for them to collapse.”
At Kariel’s words, Tarion lowered his head and disappeared.
Roman alliance was weak.
I don’t know about other countries except for the ones that are presumed to have made a contract with the demons, but the countries that didn’t were very shaken.
The shadows were just about to attack them.
Of course, the demons didn’t stay still either. It was foolish to stand still when Ignit knew exactly how it would turn out.
That’s why the demons moved directly and made contact with the remaining countries in the middle of the eastern continent.
“Join hands with you guys?”
“exactly. If you serve the Demon King, you will gain a life close to eternal life.”
“Eternal life… … . how?”
At the question of the man wearing the crown, the high-ranking demon smiled and said.
“The heart of a high-ranking demon. If you absorb this, you can become a high-ranking demon.”
A proposition that any human being would be tempted by.
Nevertheless, the king of the small country was troubled.
“I’ll think about it first.”
“Um… … .”
A high-ranking demon who was bewildered by the unexpected reaction.
But once in a while, I had no choice but to back out. Because their numbers were still insufficient, they needed time.
In the future, he would threaten me by force, but now I had to smile and promise the next one.
As the demons retreated, the king looked at the side with the red curtain.
Then, after a while, a man quietly appeared.
“Have you decided?”
“Are your words true?”
As the shadow of the empire said, the demons really tried to make them absorb the heart.
If so, it would be true that he would become a demon’s slave when he absorbed that.
“Tell His Majesty, I will make a decision before the inauguration ceremony begins.”
The shadow that briefly answered the king’s words disappeared in an instant.
The king of the small country who looked at the scene quietly sighed. Today, the crown on my head felt very heavy.
