“Everyone~! Kept you waiting! We will now begin the Martial Arts Tournament of Great Keith!”
The announcer using wind magic to amplify his voice resonates in the area.
Cheers that made the ground shake in the round shaped colosseum.
The venue is beyond full.
“Uwaah, there’s a lot of people.”
Sa-san and I were looking up in awe at the presence of it.
“Hey, Aya, will you be okay? The opponents all seem powerful.” (Lucy)
Lucy pinched the sleeve of Sa-san uneasy, but Sa-san doesn’t seem to be nervous at all.
The participants going up the round ring all have good physique and have pretty threatening looks.
By the way, in this time’s Martial Arts Tournament, it will be an all class battle; in other words, it is a battle where it doesn’t matter if you are a man or woman, where there’s no divisions between your weight or race.
Because with this tournament, you can become the yearly Country Designated Hero of the Fire Country.
Therefore, all the participants are given a chance.
Moreover, the participants aren’t only from the country, but from other countries, coming all the way here seeking honour and fame.
At the stage there’s the announcer reading the names of the participants one by one.
Cheers being raised each time he mentions one is most likely because they are famous fighters.
“Even so, despite being such a big tournament, 32 participants is a bit low.” (Fuji)
“Danna-sama, that’s not it. There were already preliminary matches done, and there were more than 10,000 people.” (Nina)
“Eh, seriously?” (Makoto)
I was also surprised by what Nina-san and Fuji-yan were talking about.
“Did you even participate in those preliminary matches, Sa-san?” (Makoto)
“No, I didn’t. All I did was write my name in the entree sheet.” (Aya)
Oya, why is that?
“Hero Makoto, it seems they have given her preferential treatment for being a comrade of the Water Country’s Hero. Looks like she has been chosen as a member of this tournament in the special branch.” (Sofia)
Princess Sofia tells me with a stiff expression.
“Hmm, does that mean…” (Makoto)
“The Fire Country is probably planning something. If Aya-san hadn’t chosen to participate herself, the chances are high that they would have cooked up a reason to have you participate…” (Sofia)
“Defeating the Water Country’s Hero to show the power of the warriors of the Fire Country, huh.” (Makoto)
They really got an eye on me.
“Next, the representative of the Water Country, Sasaki Ayaaaa!!”
Sa-san’s name was called.
I was going to tell her to do her best, but I noticed the air in the surroundings shifted in an instant.
“Get off!” “You cheater!” “Boo!” “Go lose already!” “Don’t you feel bad for the people who actually won their way here through the preliminary matches?!” “Have some shame!”
Booing rose from everywhere all at once.
“W-What’s all this?!” (Lucy)
Lucy was fuming.
“The information of Aya-san participating in this tournament without doing the preliminaries has been leaked. The source of that leak is most likely the higher ups of the Fire Country.” (Sofia)
“Just participating in the decisive matches of the Martial Arts Tournament in Great Keith is the highest of honours for warriors. It is said that your average warrior wouldn’t even be able to win through the preliminaries, so…this must be their spite from that.” (Nina)
When it comes from the former warrior of the Fire Country, Nina-san, it sounds really convincing.
“H-Hey…Sa-san, the mood is like this and all, so wouldn’t it be better to just forfeit?” (Makoto)
I got worried for Sa-san and spoke to her, but her eyes were directed at the highest story of the colosseum, at the VIP seats.
The ones sitting there are the king of Great Keith, and around them there’s the nobles from and outside of the country.
I could also see a person that I once saw in the Sun Country, who I think was from the Four Sacred Nobles.
Geralt-san is…not there (what a relief).
Sa-san’s eyes were directed at the brown skinned black haired female Hero, Olga Sol Tariska, who was sitting cross-legged and yawning as if not interested in all this.
“It is okay, Takatsuki-kun. My objective is to defeat her after all.” (Aya)
I turned to look, and Sa-san was smiling.
Seems like she has absolutely no intention of withdrawing from this tournament.
“Got it. But try not to push yourself, okay?” (Makoto)
Let’s just cheer for her.
After that, I went to where Princess Sofia and Lucy are, and told them: “Sofia, Lucy, I leave the cheering of Sa-san to you.” (Makoto)
“Leave it to us, Makoto!” (Lucy)
“Understood, Hero Makoto. If Aya-san gets injured, I will have her treated by a healer of the Water Country. The tournament staff has prepared healers, but they are under the influence of the Fire Country, so this is just in case.” (Sofia)
With how things are going, I can easily imagine them doing something.
I appreciate the consideration of Princess Sofia.
“You will be doing the subjugation of the Snake Church, right? You should be the one being careful.” (Aya)
Sa-san directed a worried gaze to me instead.
That’s right, the supposed meeting of the Snake Church is on the very day of the Martial Arts Tournament.
Is that a coincidence?
(No, it is most likely intentional…) (Makoto)
Just like how they aimed to attack in the Light Hero’s captain inauguration ceremony in the Sun Country.
At the time when everyone is concentrating somewhere else, they would move in the back.
Will Archbishop Isaac be involved in this one too?
“Then, I will be going!” (Aya)
Sa-san runs to the ring of the colosseum.
I looked at Fuji-yan, Nina-san, Princess Sofia, and Lucy…and spoke to Furiae-san who was biting a straw in a bad mood.
“Heya, I am counting on you to cheer too. But if you are not feeling good, you could run away before us.” (Makoto)
Since that time when she saw the future of the capital falling, Furiae-san didn’t want to go outside.
She seemed to be slightly mentally unstable, so I told her she could return to Makkaren before us.
But, in the end, she remained in the Fire Country’s capital.
“I don’t want to turn tail and run away alone. Also, you -My Knight- and the others aren’t running away, right? Then you change the future.” (Furiae)
“Alright, got it.” (Makoto)
I received encouragement in the Furiae-san style, and I nod back at it.
“Let’s go, Hero Makoto-dono.”
The Guardian Knight Old Man called me.
In this time’s Snake Church subjugation, I am borrowing the Guardian Knight Old Man and a number of the bodyguard.
Looks like a Hero going alone is a no.
(…Do your best, Sa-san.) (Makoto)
Leaving behind the venue that’s still booing, we headed to the meeting place for the subjugation team.
“We have been waiting. You people must be the squad of the Water Country’s Hero-dono, right?”
“That’s right. You people must be the special unit that General Tariska was talking about.”
The Fire Country’s knight and the Guardian Knight Old Man were talking to each other.
The two of them were not wearing any exaggerated armor, and their equipment is the bare minimum necessary (as for me, I always have lightweight equipment).
From what I can see at a glance, they look like adventurers or mercenaries.
This time’s plan must not be noticed by the Snake Church.
Because of that, they have formed a special unit with a few tens of people for this mission.
The Fire Country Knight in front of us is our guide.
We followed the knight for a while, and noticed that the city was declining the further we went on.
“This place is called the slums. It is the place with the worst public order in the capital of Gamuran.”
The guide knight told us this.
I didn’t know what to say, so I just nodded for now.
When I looked at the residents here, I could see that there were a lot of people with tattered clothes and the children were barefoot.
Even when the sun hadn’t risen, there were already drunk people, and others who were gambling.
It certainly fit the bill of slums.
(But for some reason…the residents seem to be in a good mood.) (Makoto)
What’s different from this and the Sun Country’s lowest district was that, despite the poor attire, everyone was looking lively.
There were a variety of races: humans, beastkin, dwarves, elves. Everything goes.
Could it be that there’s even demonkin here?
No real problems happened on our way.
There were cheeky brats and beggars who would come to us and demand to give them something, but when the guide knight showed them some sort of insignia, they grew pale and left.
“What was that from before?” (Makoto)
I was curious and asked, and the young knight answered.
“Hero-dono, I showed them this crest of the Enforcement Knights.”
What was in his hands was a crest that had the design of a Goddess holding a sword and a book.
“Hooh, you must be a really promising one to be an Enforcement Knight at that age.”
“No no, it is just that I have been doing the same thing all the time due to my grandfather.”
When the Guardian Knight Old Man praised him, the knight laughed slightly embarrassed.
Enforcement Knights are…if put into words, a job that’s like a combination of police and judges.
Their authority is high, and they can apprehend criminals, but also bring judgment right in the place.
It is a scary thing, but the Enforcement Knight saying ‘you are a criminal’ and cutting them down is a legal action to take.
Of course the cheeky children would run away.
By the way, the Enforcement Knights are not exclusive to the Fire Country.
They are apparently in every country.
There’s the most in the Sun Country, and the Water Country also has some.
You apparently need the Divine Protection of the Sun Goddess, Althena-sama, who governs justice and victory, and are required to overcome tough trials and exams to qualify.
In other words, the young knight in front of me is an elite among elites.
“Hero-dono, we have arrived at the entrance.”
After walking for a while, and crossing a back alley without many people, we arrived at what looked like a trash deposit.
At the place the Enforcement Knight pointed at, I could see there’s a stone gate and stairs leading underground.
“This is the entrance to the underground cemetery of the Fire Country, Hero-dono.”
“The Fire Country is hot in the daytime after all. It is a custom of our country in order to provide a refreshing place for the dead to rest peacefully.”
“I see…” (Makoto)
The Guardian Knight Old Man and the Enforcement Knight-san tell me this.
“It is dark, so be careful.”
We slowly went down the stairs leading underground.
It was as if the heat outside was a lie. The underground was filled with a cool air.
In order to not turn the underground passage into a pitch dark space, a number of places had what seemed like air holes where light entered, but it was mostly darkness.
We used the Night Vision Skill and moved inside the darkness.
At both sides of the passage, there are grave markers that continued on seemingly endlessly.
It is currently broad daylight, so it isn’t that scary, but if someone were to ask me if I want to come here alone late at night, I would confidently say NO.
“Just how far does this underground cemetery go for?” (Makoto)
Walking through this underground cemetery that isn’t showing any signs of ending, I asked the Enforcement Knight.
“The passage of this cemetery continues all the way until the outside of the capital. It is also one of the emergency routes in the times when the capital were to ever face disaster. For the sake of that, it is made similar to a labyrinth, so I recommend not coming here alone.”
Yeah, I would never come here alone regardless.
“The Fire Country Knights have all been drilled the map of this underground passage in their heads. A drawn map of it isn’t allowed. You understand…the reason why, right?”
The Enforcement Knight smiles in a suggestive manner.
“It is because it would be a dire problem if it were to be stolen by the enemy.” (Makoto)
It is a route that can allow you to stealthily enter the capital from the outside after all.
“Yes. Just the act of memoing is grounds for punishment. That punishment is unique. If you are found out drawing or in possession of a map of the underground passageways, you will be thrown in the deepest part of this underground cemetery, and you would have to come back on your own efforts. Scary, right?”
Was that dark humour just now?
The Guardian Knight Old Man, the Water Country Knights, and I looked at each other’s faces.
“W-What happens if they don’t manage to come back?” (Makoto)
That was the point that bothered me the most.
The Enforcement Knight moved his gaze the other way.
“See there? That over there is a grave marker for a newbie knight of the Fire Country. Soldiers not coming back is a yearly occurrence..and mourning for them is one of the duties of the newbies. I was also dejected by this in the past.”
The ones from the Water Country were shocked.
The Fire Country soldiers are too spartan!
“Just kidding. That was a joke.”
Seeing our faces, the Enforcement Knight shrugged.
H-How much of that was a joke?
Was the joke that the grave marker he pointed out was actually not from a newbie knight?
Were the contents of the punishment the joke?
(It would be better to not ask too deeply…) (Makoto)
After that, we silently continued on.
The depths of the underground cemetery were truly the very definition of a labyrinth.
The grave markers were now gone, and there were now passageways going left, right, up, and down.
We were hit by crossroads an uncountable number of times, and I was sure a first timer would definitely get lost.
By the way, the Mapping of RPG Player is working on full here.
If the subjugation of the Snake Church turns out to be a lie, and this was actually a trap to lock us up in this underground labyrinth… I don’t think that’s the case though.
The Enforcement Knight silently signals with his hand.
We all stop.
At a long turn, deep in the darkness, I certainly do see something with my Dark Vision.
With the place and all, there’s the possibility of it being an undead as well, but…
“It is someone of the Snake Church. Most likely a lookout.”
The Enforcement Knight seems to have a pretty good pair of eyes.
He apparently has the mixed blood of a beastkin that has effective eyes in the dark.
By the way, strength is what rules in the Fire Country, so even if someone is a beastkin, as long as you are strong, you don’t get discriminated against that much.
“This is troubling. This is a one-way. It would take quite a long time for a detour.”
The Old Man crosses his arms at the words of the Enforcement Knight.
The Enforcement Knight took out a magic tool without getting agitated.
It looked like a sand clock.
“We were expecting lookouts. We were also aware that it would be difficult to dispose of them due to the structure of this place. And so, in the case that there’s outlooks close to the gathering location of the Snake Church, we plan on attacking them all at once the moment all the sand in this clock falls. With that, it doesn’t matter if we are found out by the lookouts.”
The Old Man nods at the Enforcement Knight.
It looked like it would go into waiting, but…
“Want to try incapacitating the lookouts?” (Makoto)
I have been following all the time and wasn’t really of use until now, so I tried proposing this.
But the Enforcement Knight and Guardian Knight Old Man made dubious expressions.
“I feel like it would be impossible to defeat the lookouts without being noticed.”
“There’s around 100 meters from here to the lookouts. They will definitely notice you.”
They obviously objected.
“Then, we can just have them not see us.” (Makoto)
I calmly answer.
“They are sleeping…”
We got close to the lookouts, but they were fast asleep.
By the way, there were two, but I had them both sleep.
“Water Country’s Hero-dono, the technique of just now was the elementary rank water spell, Mist?”
The Enforcement Knight looked at the bottle in my hand with interest.
“Yeah, I made the water in this bottle into mist and had the lookouts breathe it. The insides of this bottle are a trade secret.” (Makoto)
It is actually water that has the sleep curse of Furiae-san.
“Being able to incapacitate the opponents at that distance without them noticing! This is most impressive.”
The Guardian Knight Old Man was happy from the bottom of his heart.
“…What an interesting technique. It was a learning experience.”
On the other hand, the Enforcement Knight’s eyes got sharper.
I don’t know what he is thinking right now, but my priority at present is to efficiently change the future.
He soon returned to a peaceful expression.
“Thanks to the Hero Makoto-dono, we can now proceed. We will restrain the Snake Church people here and have one knight keep an eye out on them. We shall move on. Our goal is close.”
We silently nodded.
After that, there was no conversation as we moved on in the dark passageway.
The face of the Enforcement Knight was showing that he was nervous.
We are most likely really close to the goal now.
After a while, I could see a red light from the other side of the passageway.
When I confirm with Farsight, I could tell that it was the light of fire.
“They are there.”
“Yeah, there’s no doubt this is the gathering location of the Snake Church.”
We try to be careful not to get too close to them as we wait.
There’s still a bit of time before the sand falls completely.
But the eyes of the Enforcement Knight opened wide in shock.
The Enforcement Knight suddenly ran off.
Eh? Weren’t we supposed to wait?
“Hero-dono, what should we do?”
“Let’s follow him.” (Makoto)
The Old Man and I didn’t know what was going on, but we decided to follow after.
At that place, there was a giant round theatrical hall-like place that didn’t fit this underground setting.
There were torches burning at the surroundings of the theatrical hall, lighting up the inside in a red hue.
At first, I couldn’t tell what it was.
I thought something was laid on the whole floor.
What was piled up there were…several hundreds of collapsed people.

Thanks for the chapter
Thank u always for ur great work…
Beaten again? Hmmmmm, you’re loosing your touch!
Thanks for the chapter!!!!!!
Thank you for the chapter !
So a sacrifice altar. What is next; A monologue of them being too late to stop them and also the attack being unstoppable?
Enforcement Knights ? And they are able to kill someone without any evidence on the spot ? The Goddess Church is even more corrupt than I thought. They must have killed a lot of innocent demonkin in the past.
Several hundreds of collapsed people ? They are most likely cheap slaves that have been bought by the Snake Church. I see two uses for cheap slaves. The first use is using them as guinea pigs for some experiments or drugs. The second use is using them as a sacrifice for some ritual or magic.
> The Goddess Church is even more corrupt than I thought.
I’d say this shows they’re arrogant, not corrupt.
They have these knights because they believed they’d be rightful.
The church is likely also corrupt anyway, tho.
Sounds about right. I would also add that it is a mix of self-rightrousness and appeal to authority.
It was said that Gaurdian Knights have to undergo intense training and receive the Divine Blessing ofvthe Goddess of Justice.
Although every society has it’s own view of justice, it’s likely that if they deliberately betrayed that justice the Goddess would cease her Blessing. A knight being outted by the Goddess of Justice would be lucky to be allowed to kill themselves.
Not that Gaurdian Knights couldn’t do horrible things they felt were justified.
Yeah, it’s really just a license to kill at your discretion and definitely gets ugly fast.
There’s a reason Judge, Jury, and Executioner not being the same person is an important concept in our world.
Well you know how ut usually goes with churches and demon treatment. For them just being alive is a crime.
they could also use them just as wave tactics. once you bought enough it would do significant damage, even if they couldn’t win overall.
The problem would be the fact that these Knights are not held accountable for their actions if they are wrong. So the problem is that there aren’t any check’s and balances. And I think that should be the issue, not the corrupt part. We could have a conversation about the knights being this type of wretched people, but we will see if the author will go that way. We can’t argue that corruption is involved till the author underlines it.
I bet they are believing you would lose the blessing of Goddess of Justice if you abused your position. So malice might be ruled out, but I’m not so sure about negligence. The whole idea reminds me of Judge Dredd comics though.
I was also thinking about Judge Dredd when I read the part about these knights also!
Well apparently they need the Divine Protection of the god of law to be one, so the enforcement knights will only be as corrupt as the goddess we have yet to see.
Does Reigokai release multiple sponsored chapters at once? Or is it just one extra on Sunday?
Just one extra on Sunday.
Doesn’t he has the schedule of Tsuki -> one day off -> WM -> WM -> one day off -> repeat? I thought that’s how it has always been until now
I think it depends on RL, his mood, chapter size, sponsor chap queue, and some other stuff. I remember Tsuki’s always refreshing and getting long.
I normally try not to release several sponsored chapters in a single day. Before, I released sponsored chapters for sure on sundays, and then post sponsored chapters on the week if I found the chance. And yes, it also depends on my mood whether I release extra chapters.
Thank you for the hard work!
Thanks for the chapter.
Thank you for the cahper.

Makoto must be quite mature or have a secret motive for helping the country despite all the antagonism, if he’s doing it without any good reason it will scream “I am a hero therefore I must sacrifice myself for everyone”.
I mostly think he’s doing this just because he’s in gamer mode and this is a major side quest. Not a main quest since this one didn’t have a default option when the choice to accept or decline it popped up.
You know he’s the guy who told the princess f*ck you once, so he has a certain amount of self-esteem and it’s not the usual bland slave-like MC, unless he’s planning on ripping the country a new one his recent behavior is just weird.
There are 3 simple reasons why he is helping:
1) Aya’s friend is a slave and it would be hard to get her out without a huge risk for everybody.
2) He wants to prove to the Moon oracle that he can change the future she sees.
3) If something happens to the Fire country it will be a big blow to the anti-demon lord coalition.
I would agree to an extent to the fact that maybe he is trying to test if he can change the future Furiae predicts, but I don’t think he does it to prove something to her. But maybe I’m wrong.
My money are on this option: He likes the harder routes, he has the RPG skill, and he tends to grind before reaching the last boss, and finishing all the possible side-quests and try to solve any side puzzles even if they are tiring.
I mean…the most pragmatic reason is that he needs the avoid leaving the Fire Country in dire straits when the upcoming battles are going to be really tough.
The moral reason is that this country still has innocent people despite the folks representing them being assholes, and he’s confident he won’t die or need to sacrifice himself.
The real reason is probably just that he likes doing the harder sidequest when given the option.
A pile of human corpses! Delicious!
In all seriousness though, I wonder if this has anything to do with sacrifice spells.
Thanks for the new chapter!
Boo! Makoto better hurry up and punch all the Snake Church people in the face. They’re making him miss out on watching Sa-san curb stomp a bunch of fools.
Also shouldn’t Olga have been part of the mission? I don’t remember but wasn’t she not taking part in the tournament? Or at least not taking part until the finals? Usually tournaments have it were they’ll have separate days for prelims, semifinals and then finals. I just feel they’re taking the Snake Church lightly if all they’re doing is just sending a squad to face them and it doesn’t include their fire hero. Yeah Makoto is also a hero but everybody thinks he’s hella weak specifically because the same fire country officials that have tasked him to help with this mission also are the ones who went around spreading rumors about how weak his is.
Well I can only assume those are all the slaves that the Snake Church purchased and they used them for some sort of sacrifice.
Thanks for the chapter and I’m looking forward to the fight between Sasaki and olga~ also placing money on the fact that the people in the room aren’t dead! Mostly because this novel doesn’t seem like the type to be that graphic and the fact that the text didn’t outright state that the people are dead, just collapsed. Anyway can’t wait to learn about the snake churches scheme~
Thanks for the chapter!
Aw man, a cliffhanger. And next chapter i’m sure its about the tournament, and not this major quest
At any rate, Thanks again for the chapter, and thank you to whom’st’ve sponsored this chapter, whoever you are!
Thanks for the chapter!!!
Those dead bodies are sacrifices for the birth of a new demon lord obviously
Haven’t you read Tenshura yet Makoto?
Also sad Lucy didnt come :(((
I guess no Synchro Fireball Diarrhea for you Makoto :((((
I’ll just imagine what’ll happen when they come back
“The winner of the tournament is-?? ”
“SASAKI AYA OF THE WATER COUNTRY”
“What!!! she defeated the Fire hero!?? “
While I would love to see Sa-san actually kick ass and take names after the booing she’s getting, it would absolutely be worth the punchline if instead we went with:
“Hey Sa-san, we’re back. How did it go?”
“I beat the tournament. Fire Hero was tough, but I won!”
“Congratulations! Now help us deal with this attack.”
Haha. With how much of a power boost Sa-san got, I really wouldn’t be surprised if the author went off and pulled that one on us.
The Sand Dragon nest seemed to be a long standing problem for the Fire Country, and Sa-san wiped them out, so I would be surprised if Olga is as strong as the present Sa-san.
Weird where fire country hero?
To think they make makoto do their job ¯\_ಠ_ಠ_/¯¯\_ಠ_ಠ_/¯
Water magic is OP if you use poison+ mist magic .. perfect assasin ..
Thanks for the chapter
Makoto was always a stealth type assasin before he learned spirit magic
He specialized in freezing creatures blood and creating mist
He also has a low presence
Olga is watching the tournament. Yeah I think it’s weird that she’s there instead of taking part in this mission.
Most likely because it is a covert mission. If the fire hero is absent during the tournament, of course the snake church will get suspicious.
The mapping (RPG) skill of Makoto has me kind of curious to whether it works if he’s kidnapped.
Like he gets kidnapped and then they accidently save him and voila, he’s got their entire base down.
Oh nice. Takki has what’s basically sleeping gas. Moreover, the most potent stuff around.
Hmm. As expected, they were used as sacrifices then? The fact that there are lookouts means that there are probably important rituals to be completed here and it’s not entirely an attack on the tournament, but it’s hard to imagine the Snake Church just leaving such a public gathering alone.
Or maybe this place is just bait and intel was intentionally leaked, with the lookouts being meant as a bluff. Anyone else wouldn’t be able to get past them without raising the alarm, after all.
Thanks for the chapter
As always, thank you for your chapter Reigokai!
So Makoto will go on assassin spree!
It seems to me like the destruction will be caused by Sa-san going on rampage or the underground labyrinth will collapse. Or this seems at the moment to me.
So another Demon Lord will be revived. Makoto’s reputation will go up again! I will be laughing my ass off this time also. Curios who will be the next Demon Lord and how will Makoto deal with him!
It would be more funny if makoto mist spell actually reach here XD
Thanks for the chapter.
Nobody expects the Athenian inquisition!
And thanks for the chapter ^^
Thanks for the chapter.
Thanks for the chapter~
Makoto u damn simp carrying furi-chans bathwater around
Belle Delphine much? ROFL! :))
Why is the Fire hero not participating in this critical dangerous mission where they need a small elite force?
Thanks for the chapter!
It’s a small elite force because it needs to avoid drawing attention.
Somehow, even if she wasn’t the hero, she doesn’t strike me as particularly…discrete.
Hah, a sacrificial ritual huh, it’s actually make much sense considering they are followers of a evil god, I don’t know why I didn’t thought that possibility.
Thank you for the chapter Reigokai!
A whole bunch of collapsed people? I think people nailed it on the head about it being a ritual of some kind. But the question is what kind?
Thank you for the chaper!
A correction it should be Makoto speaking here.
“H-Hey…Sa-san, the mood is like this and all, so wouldn’t it be better to just forfeit?” (Lucy) -> (Makoto)
Makoto is an assassin or rogue class at his core judging by his gamer knowledge and earlier fights.
So they were sac’s then? Makes sense I guess. Also, he should get exposed anytime now. He is, after all, weak as hell in physical combat. He can’t even run properly compared to others
