The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 2
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 2
1. Unwanted return! (2)
He struggled to destroy the imperial faction, the main culprits who suffered him in his previous life.
Before leaving the palace, he wrote down their weaknesses on a piece of paper, thinking about how he could destroy more members of the imperial faction.
As a result, after much thought, the first goal that must be done before leaving was decided.
‘The chancellor must go with George unconditionally.’
A chancellor who is trusted by the current emperor.
The biggest culprit who had no choice but to suffer in his previous life was the prime minister, who could be said to be the main axis of the imperial faction.
A genius who brought down a family of marques who originally led the imperial faction and made a family of viscounts into a family of marquis.
Instead of the emperor, he was famous for coordinating the opinions of the nobles, the neutrals, and the imperial faction.
But the biggest reason he was famous was his integrity.
Most of the balls are known to be clean enough to be said to have been sealed to the marquis by the emperor himself when they are distributed to his followers.
But that was all a lie.
“You’re honest, you bastard… … .”
As Kariel sharpened his teeth, he spat out swear words at the prime minister.
When he was young, he didn’t know anything and thought he was honest.
“It was all a mask.”
The prime minister was so greedy and greedy that it was thought that there were thousands of serpents in his body.
And his true intentions are revealed after the emperor’s death.
He was trying to divide the empire and satisfy his greed under the pretext of replacing himself with weak strength and foundation.
Kariel sharpened his teeth again, burning his anger against the prime minister.
Had it not been for the prime minister, the suffering in his previous life would have been reduced by a third.
“after… … Let’s be calm.”
Knowing that anger would only make it difficult for him, Kariel meditated and tried to calm his anger.
The fireball inside his body is a guy who can assimilate well with the emotion of anger, so it could be dangerous if you get caught up in extreme anger.
“Sir, I have brought you the books you commanded!”
Hearing a noise outside the door, Kariel ordered to come in.
At his command, the servant came in with books piled up like a mountain in a cart.
“Is this all?”
“no. I think a pile of books like this should come four more times.”
The number of books that fill the room now is huge, but Kariel forgot about it for a moment when he realized that four times the number of books would be accumulated in the future.
But then he nodded and ordered him to leave.
“It’s a lot.”
As Kariel said so, he began to devote himself to reading the most basic books.
In my mind, I would like to call professors from prominent academies and ask for advice, but I had to deal with the leak of my own information in that case.
At that point, it was easier to find out on my own.
“… … Well.”
As I looked at the vast amount of books, I immediately thought, ‘Should I ask the professors for advice on unimportant information?’ I thought
But then he shook his head.
There are way too many smart guys here in the capital.
Since it is a place where all those who want to use their brains in the Empire have gathered, it was possible to infer the information that Kariel was trying to hide by collecting the pieces of information.
In the end, after I decided to find out on my own, I set the order of the most important first.
1. Werewolf rigid body art.
2. Find out what kind of beings are to be contracted with.
3. Find ways to contain the fire.
4. Find the detailed location and contract method of the entities to be contracted.
There were four main things, but I was thinking of starting with the easiest one.
Among the information given by God, the clearest hint was Werewolf’s rigid body technique, so I started looking for things related to it.
Still, because it was the Imperial Palace library, there were books containing fairly high-level information.
Kariel, who chose the Great Encyclopedia of Monsters first, slowly turned the pages.
“Ho, as expected, the monsters are also formidable.”
Kariel shook her head thinking about her past life.
My teeth still trembled when I thought of the hardships of the monster wave.
Obviously, even though the Margraves of each region warned several times, they were not properly prepared because of the fucking rebellion and invasion of neighboring countries.
For that reason, they had to go and evacuate right before the fall of the capital.
Thinking about it now, it was very unfortunate.
Obviously, he was trying to prepare for the monster, but he just missed the time due to the goddamn rebellion and attacks from neighboring countries.
When they get angry, the fireballs heat up their heads again.
Kariel immediately closed his eyes and meditated.
And he kept his anger quiet by shouting ‘Let’s calm down.’
“after… … .”
Having barely silenced the anger that spread to the tip of her head, Kariel read a book about monsters.
The monster encyclopedia that Kariel was reading now wasn’t just a list of characteristics.
As expected of a book read by the imperial family, information on each monster was written in detail.
Among them, there was also a description of the power used by each race.
“It’s definitely worth researching how to age mana.”
Kariel muttered that while shaking her head.
Because Kariel had once studied mana deeply to calm her firearms, she valued the mana aging method used by monsters more highly than anyone else.
Since Kariel was not from here, he looked at the skills of the monsters with an unbiased gaze.
However, in the meantime, the monster wave exploded, and I studied more deeply about the use of mana used by monsters, and found that the use of mana by monsters had reached a much higher level than humans in some respects.
Of course, wizards and scholars were displeased with such Kariel.
Well, since the emperor studied the skills of uncivilized monsters, the emperor looked like a madman from the point of view of scholars.
“Scholars are rather stereotypical human beings… … .”
Kariel clicked her tongue as she muttered that.
Then, he listened to an old book that collected all the mana usage methods on the continent.
Most of them were familiar, but some were interesting.
“It sure is interesting.”
Cariel muttered like that and turned the bookshelf.
Modern methods of mana utilization have reached a level where even scholars can’t even imagine how many more there are.
Of course, there are two ways to use that much mana in the end.
Mana ripening method.
These two methods, which have been passed down from ancient times, have developed in various ways to the present day.
Humans and sub-races are based on the Mana Refining Method.
Except for humans, most of the races called monsters are mana maturation methods.
The reason humans chose the mana purification method was simple.
Each method had clear advantages and disadvantages, but the advantages of the mana refining method chosen by humans were as follows.
1. It is safe.
2. It is convenient to process.
Then, what are the advantages of the mana aging method chosen by monsters?
1. It is possible to become stronger quickly.
2. Recovery speed is fast.
As well as the advantages, the disadvantages were also clear.
The mana refining method was stronger than the mana aging method, and it took a long time and had to go through a complicated process to accumulate mana.
On the other hand, the mana aging method was incomplete.
That means you have to take risks.
The reason monsters chose the mana aging method is that they face danger from the moment they are born.
Like a battlefield where every moment is fierce, they had no choice but to choose the mana aging method in order to survive.
On the other hand, humans and non-humans did not, so they chose the mana purification method as a way to minimize the risk.
That’s why Kariel, who was already weak, could become more dangerous if she learned how to age mana.
However, even those who had trained mana refining to the limit and famous scholars couldn’t find a way to control Kariel’s firearms, so this was the only way.
‘I take the risk.’
How long can you not be dragged around by firearms for the rest of your life.
I searched for information about Werewolf with the mindset that I would take a certain risk, but the results were disappointing.
“It’s okay, too.”
Kariel sighed and shook her head.
It was something I had already recognized in my previous life, so something didn’t come out right away.
“I’m sure I recognized Werewolf at the time… … .”
According to scholars in the previous life, the Werewolf’s mana management was not very different from that of Orcs and other monsters.
Mana aging method based on their powerful body.
And even fighting using it.
Since Kariel knew everything, she couldn’t help but tilt her head.
Most of the contents of the monster encyclopedia were familiar, so Kariel, who was turning the pages with a bored expression, suddenly stopped.
“Among the ancient wear wolves, there was a race that used a unique form of mana utilization.”
Seeing this sentence, Kariel’s eyes widened.
“right. I didn’t recognize it until ancient times.”
While Kariel muttered that, she turned to the next page, but there was only a simple concept and no details.
“An ancient Werewolf martial art with the concept of maximizing physical abilities and honing instincts, not general fighting techniques.”
Since it was a dead technology even within Werewolf, there was not much data.
It was such a clumsy description that even Kariel would have skipped it if it wasn’t for the hint given by God.
Nevertheless, Kariel was satisfied.
“I got the direction.”
Kariel smiled as she said that.
Details can be found elsewhere.
If you dig into Werewolf, some information will come out.
One concern is that if it happened so long ago, there is a possibility that there may not be much data left.
‘I’m sure you want me to stay.’
Believing in the Imperial Palace Library, which boasts the largest collection of books on the continent, Kariel pushed aside books about monsters.
Rather than looking for the Ancient Werewolf right now, I tried to figure out the next step.
“There are many.”
Seeing the books related to the Age of Mythology piled up, Kariel let out a small sigh and began to look them over.
Still, time was saved because all I had to do was find people involved in the fire.
“Was there a lot of them?”
Even from the mythological age to the ancient times, there were many beings related to fire.
In addition, there were also a huge number of heroes related to fire, which is the basis of the empire.
That’s why I searched for the most overwhelming existence first.
“I thought it would be easy to find the drink of destruction… … .”
Kariel muttered that while frowning.
It was an existence with the word ‘destruction’ in it, and I knew I would find it quickly as it was nicknamed the devil.
However, there was no such thing as a demon of destruction anywhere.
“If you’re going to tell me, I’ll tell you everything. Little pup.”
Kariel, who was angry, sighed heavily while cursing at God.
In the end, I gave up on finding the demon of destruction and started looking for gods related to fire, but surprisingly, other beings were able to find clues sooner than expected.
Beast that swallowed the sun – Wolf that swallowed the sun Skoll
Gatekeeper of Hell – Garum, the Dog of Hell
Fragment of the Fire Elemental King – Ignis or Selaim
However, there was still a problem, other than that, it was difficult to obtain data.
Skoll, a being rejected by those who worship the sun god.
Garum, the gatekeeper of hell, is also in a state of disappearance due to the loss of many data because the presence of hell is terrifying due to the war of the black magician.
There was no such thing as a fragment of the fire spirit king, but there was no data as the traces of the two beings were obscure since ancient times.
“So it is.”
There was no way that a man named God would allow him to easily overcome an incurable disease.
Kariel, scratching her head and making an annoyed expression, nervously flipped through the bookshelf.
In the meantime, a name appeared on the last page of the fire-related myth.
「Master of Muspel」
The fire giant and king of Muspel who brought an end to the distant mythical age.
Even in an empire that worships fire, a presence that is reluctant.
However, as he was one of the people who ended the myth era, he was always the last person to decorate the history books related to the myth era.
“It is an existence that annihilates even the world of the gods… … .”
Cariel thought about the god who had fucked him and wished he could borrow Surt’s power, even for a moment.
It was time to go over information related to Surt so blankly.
Among the numerous titles referring to him, small letters could be seen.
“The Demon of Destruction”
Kariel took a closer look at the book again, wondering if she was mistaken.
In the book, it was written that among those who survived the age of mythology, there were those who called Surtur the demon of destruction.
“The real Surtur is the Demon God of Destruction?”
Kariel muttered with a puzzled expression.
Kariel muttered in disbelief and jumped up.
“Imperial Palace treasure house!”
Kariel’s eyes widened at the thought passing through her head.
Coincidentally, one of Surt’s relics was kept in the imperial palace.
It had a curse on it, and there were problems with authenticity, but it was worth the money anyway.
“You should try it.”
Kariel muttered that, and a deep smile appeared on her lips.
But Kariel, who was laughing, suddenly tilted her head.
It is common for artifacts of mythological beings to be lost or sealed in hard-to-find areas.
Only a very small portion of them are enshrined in each country’s treasury, but unfortunately Surt’s treasure was also kept in the empire’s treasury.
But that will help Kariel recover from her illness?
At that moment, Kariel’s expression began to distort at the feeling that everything from the ‘contractor’ she had received to Surt were connected.
“This bastard… … Did you have any plans?”
Kariel looked up at the sky and muttered to the god who was watching her.
But no answer came.
“under… … .”
Feeling like playing until the end, Kariel, who eventually caught her back, lay in bed for a while and couldn’t get up.
