Not as good as Zepes, but Riorg is honestly weak too. To me, there's not much difference between them, and they're just fifty steps and a hundred steps. But the enthusiasm with which they risked their lives to use their origin magic is something I can appreciate.

 It's a very good idea to have a good idea of what magical warfare is. It's a good idea to have a look at the small buds that are in the hearts of the founder's parents.

You're not nearly ready to risk your life, but that's okay. I'm willing to give you a chance to get out of it.

 I said as I walked towards a place.


Yeah. You're not gonna have a chance to...

 I drew a magic circle on Zepes's eraser. When I thrust my hand into the center of it and grabbed it up tightly, the body of Zepes appeared there. However, unlike the time of , its flesh was rotten.

''What........what is this magic.......? What the hell is this evil magic power...?

'Is this your first time? This is a spell called "Igloom". To put it simply, it's something that raises dead people as rotten dead (zombies).

"Nonsense... it's moving... it's moving... it's dead and it's moving like the living...! You're a monster?

What, it's not so great. It's really quite simple magic.

 Zepes, who has sluggishly risen as a rotten dead (zombie), walks towards Riorg. His eyes are dark and stagnant, and drool is dripping from his mouth.

''Oh, ahhh! Ouch ... ouch ... ouch ... ouch ... my brother why did you kill ... why did you kill me? ... my brother... why...

"....don't come here ....you walk away ....

 Without a moment's hesitation, Riorg unleashes the Demon Thunder (Demond) on Zepes.


 The black lightning shot at Zepes was instantly enveloped in black flames. It was burned up by his .

''What...! How is it that Zepes's 'Gresde' is the same as my 'Demon Thunder'...

That's what it's called, Yggulum. Those who are enchanted gain immense magical power. In return, he will be consumed by the hatred he felt when he was killed and the pain of his unhealed wounds.

 Riorg raises an eyebrow.

'....You want Zepes to kill me....

 There is no greater humiliation than being beaten by my brother, who was proud of being a pureblood and looked down on me.
 Riorg must have thought that I used to mock him.

'Unfortunately, I'm not in such bad taste. I told you I'd take my chances.

...What are the chances?

I told you. I told you that you have the wrong idea of power. You can't get away with it. You need to change your mind about your brother's uselessness.

 Riorg said to me as he carefully distanced himself from Zepes.

'I've changed my mind, so what do you mean?

'Do you need to tell everyone? Acknowledge your brother, and then together, join forces and come at me.


 Apparently, he appears to be quite surprised. As far as I'm concerned, Riorg, who had no concept of joining forces, probably had no idea of relying on his brother.
 He must have been able to see him, who had turned into a rotten dead (zombie), as nothing more than an enemy.

''Don't pull a joke on me! You said that those who have been turned into zombies will fret about the hatred they feel when they are killed! He said the pain of unhealed wounds tormented him. There's no way a man like that can keep his sanity!

Oh, yes. Eternal agony of hell. You'd be better off dead. But--

 I said as I confronted him with a fact that Riorg was not aware of.

'Still, it's what brothers do to get along,'


Come on. Come on. Show me what it's like to be brothers. Come on, join forces, both of you.

Are you... are you...? Isn't the least we can do is to kill them rather than live as rotten zombies?

'That's just running away from your own comfort zone. Believe it. Brotherhood. There must have been a time in your life when you could have been an older brother and a younger brother without worrying about your place in the world.

 Riorg frowned and snorted.
 Hmm. You're not going to tell me there's no time for that.

'I hate ... hate ... kill ... kill ... kill ...' ...!

 Zepes mutters deliriously and summons jet black flames in his hand.

I'll kill you...!

 As Zepes' resentment burns, the in his hands burns fiercely. If he eats that thing properly, Riorg will not be able to survive.

''Well, what do we do now? We'll just have to make up for it.

 I thought to myself, "If we push it this far, it should awaken the bond between the brothers.

''I'm sorry, but that thing and I have never done anything brotherly before.

'Don't be a spoiled brat! Then let's be friends from now on. Let's get rid of all the hate in the world. Call him now. Call me your brother's name. Reunite with him in an instant. Demonstrate brotherhood now, or you will die!

 The magical flame that has turned into a giant fireball is about to be unleashed on Riorg.

 But I know that the bond between the brothers is stronger than anything else. But I know that the bond between brothers is stronger than anything else. In the age of mythology, there were demons who wanted to protect their brothers and siblings, even if they had turned into zombies.

 As time went on, the demons may have become weak.
 The magic formula may have been reduced to a lower dimension, and magic may have degenerated.

 But the bond of brotherhood does not change.

'I told you to call them!

 At that moment, Riolg shouted as if he had made up his mind.

''Oooh, ze, zepeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

went straight to Riorg, and then he was wrapped in black flames without a second thought.

 Riorg has been turned into an extinguishing coal.


 Is this what the bond between brothers in this era was like?
