I'm an adopted child, and Master Gram had already put down his vizier when I became royalty, so I don't know much about it either: ......
Leah said and glanced at me.
I nodded that it was still okay.
'That's fine. Tell me about Gram and his impressions from Leah's point of view.
I stared into his eyes, and Leah sighed in contemplation, as if she was losing it.
Me and Amelia sat deep in our chairs and listened to the story.
'Lord Gram was born as the only son of the sister of the current king, Igtham Lagoon. The current king's family was not blessed with a child for generations, and they were very pleased when Gram-sama was born.
Oh, I'm starting to read something into the story.
I picked up a cookie-like pastry on the table.
''And Gram-sama, who grew up to be adored by the current king and other royalty, ...... has grown into such an arrogant personality that he's become convinced that the entire world is his.
So, because the place where you were born was a royal family, you were in an environment where you could make your wishes come true, for better or worse.
It's nice, the winners since birth.
Even though you can't choose where you're born, isn't there too much of a gap between the two?
He can do whatever he wants after he ascends to the position of vizier at the behest of the present king. He has women as his warriors, sells children and has men under his control. I have been a part of the world's largest and most respected business community for a long time. ...... Truly, he seems to have been the kind of person who didn't consider anyone but those he liked to be human.
And then they found out about it, and he was dropped as Prime Minister and made Guildmaster.
Leah dropped her gaze quietly, as if she had a thought too.
''Even after being appointed Guildmaster, I did whatever I wanted, and the king couldn't stop me anymore.
I nod my head.
Even the current king's nephew has that much power?
'In the Beastmen, do they let their nephews have power too? I could have banished you.
Amelia spoke for me when she said what I wanted to say.
Oh yeah, that's what I wanted to say.
''No, the only power that Gram-sama has is being a guild master. The problem lies in his troops.''
A mercenary you say you hired?
Leah nodded at my words.
After moistening her mouth with tea, she continued.
''That's right. Those mercenaries are ...... hapless, but even the strongest troops in the kingdom can't stand up to their teeth. I'm sure you'll be able to find out what's going on in the world and what's going on in the world. ...... no longer human. They can't speak the language and probably won't even be able to live a normal life.
The sight of Leah biting her lip gave me a lot of insight.
Apparently, she'd seen those mercenaries before.
'What was it like?'
Amelia asks, stuffing her mouth full of sweets.
Is this guy really tasting and eating?
A high quality product like candy, it's not something you can eat very often.
It's a good idea to be able to have a good idea of what you're looking for. Maybe it's the drugs. It turns you into a killing doll, a body that can only listen to orders. We don't know much about it yet, but there seems to be a drug that makes it possible.
It doesn't sound like a drug of any kind in terms of tone.
'If it's a drug that goes behind the scenes or ......, the guy making it must be a druggist or a compounder or a guy with a good profession. I don't think the average guy could make a drug like that.
'Yes. We're looking into it as well, but we haven't found it yet.
The status of a profession has the power to change the way we think about things.
Since I came to this world, I've been experiencing it too much.
In Japan, neither I nor my classmates had the power to kill demons.
The difference between us in Japan and now is that our professions and our status are more visible.
This is a big difference.
If we had a job when we were born, we wouldn't worry about our future.
And the fact that you can see your status means you can see what you are not good at.
Unlike in Japan, the world is an easy place to live in even though the danger of death is always there.
However, just like in Japan, there are almost always people who misuse such power.
If we can make a drug that turns humans into a killing weapon, why can't we also make a drug that helps people who are sick?
'I guess it's no wonder we can't find them in the country. It's the people behind the scenes.
'Yes, sir. King Igtham is of the same opinion. I suspect that this matter of calling on Lady Akira has something to do with this as well.
I sighed as I looked up at the castle I could see.
Now, will the call of the king of the beastman race, Igtham, turn out to be a good thing or a bad thing?
So far I don't have a bad feeling about it, but I have learned well since I came to this world not to trust the race of the king.
It would be better to be wary.
