plain why you were surprised?”

Lars asked.

Instead of answering, Sears asked another question.

“Do you know Bishop Sephira?”

When the name Sephira was mentioned, Lars seemed shocked.

“Ah! is it the one from Apton?”

If one was a priest of the Pyro religion, then one would know Sephira because that person was the archbishop of the ‘Apton’ branch.

Sears smiled and nodded.

“I am from the Bell family.”

“I am pleased to meet you.”

Lars’ eyes went wide at the mention of ‘Bell family,’ and he knelt down on one knee in front of Sears.

That made Jamie almost spit out what he ate.

“I am a Welton now, so you don’t have to do this.”

“Ev-even then.”

It has been so long since I last saw someone from Pyro.”

“I know.”

Jamie looked at his parents in shock.

They seemed to be accepting Lars very quickly.

‘What the hell!’

He understood that the Pyro church in Apton was under the Bell estate.

But that couldn’t be the reason why Lars was bowing down to Sears.
A church that belonged to an estate meant that they were tenants.
That was all.

What kind of tenant would kneel to a landlord?

The Bell family and the Pyro church must have a different relationship.

And for a paladin to kneel, the other person had to be at least a bishop-level person.

‘Is there something that I don’t know?’

The close relationship between Pyro and Bell could be understood from Lars’s attitude.
But no matter how much he thought, Jamie couldn’t understand the reason.

In that case, he had asked.

Jamie asked his father with an innocent look.

“Why is he here?”

“It is complicated to explain.
When I get the chance, I’ll let you know later.”

Count Welton said in a soft voice.

Jamie hated it.
After the meal, he would go and ask them.

If the Bell family and the Pyro church’s relationship were this strong, it would be a pain for Jamie.

After all, she is also someone I need to kill.’

“Stop that and rise.”

Sears grabbed Lars’ arm and lifted him up.

Lars looked at her and spoke.

“It must have been the goddess’s will that led me to this palace.”

“Live a sinless life.”

“Mercy which isn’t harsh.
I never thought I’d find someone to greet me like this.”

Lars sat down and kept saying that over and over, unable to believe it.

“Go on.
The food will turn cold.”

“Thank you so much.”

At the Count’s words, Lars started eating.

The table was as warm as ever, but this morning, it had a different kind of warmth.

‘I’ll just pretend.’

Except for one person.

After the meal, Count Welton took Lars to his office.

They chatted over tea.

How did you get here? There should be no reason for Pyro members to come all the way to the east.”

Initially, the influence of Pyro in the Seldam kingdom was minimal.
Fortunately, the Pyro religion existed in a few places like Apton.

“Did you come here to expand your power in the east?”

I came here for a different reason.”

“Different reason?”

“I was chasing someone.”

Lars’s expression turned serious.

“A person who conducts terrible experiments that no human being should dare to do.”

“There is no other race that does that except for dark magicians, right?”

“It isn’t a dark magician.
No, it didn’t look much different from a dark magician either.”

“What the hell is that?”

“A Chimera maker.”

Count’s eyes widened.

It was because he never imagined that the word chimera would come out of Lars’s mouth.

“Are you saying that someone is making chimera illegally?”

The bigger problem is not just that, he isn’t making normal chimera.”

“Is chimera normal to put that under a normal category?”

I didn’t mean it like that.
Hm… before I speak, can I ask you a favor?”

“… if I can do it.”

“This issue is top secret even in the church, so we don’t get to speak around.
So, if you help me, I can tell you.”

“So, you are asking for cooperation.”


Lars looked at the Count with a nervous expression.

He didn’t even know that the land he reached was Haiss, of the Welton family, but this had to be a God-given opportunity.

Count Welton was a Sword Master.
If they could receive his help, things would be easier.


The Count tapped the table and pondered.

“Chimera maker.”

Chimera was an artificial lifeform created by combining the strengths of several living beings.
It wasn’t a sin.
But the world treated them as sinners.

It was because they used ‘human’ as their materials.

It wasn’t known if all the chimera makers did that, but those who were noticed did that till now.

‘The fact that it is being treated as top-secret in the church.’

The Count looked at Lars.

Paladins didn’t deal with Mana.
So they can’t use aura.
And it wasn’t easy to know the level of the paladin.

But the Count was a Sword Master.
The one who reached the peak of the sword.
No matter how different the sources of power were, it wasn’t difficult to read the opponent.

Lars wasn’t just a paladin.
The energy inside him was in terms of the level of an expert knight.
He didn’t reach Master, but he must be around the level of a knight commander.

And that person was tracking a chimera maker alone.

“I can’t guarantee my help because of my position.
But since I know the relationship between my in-laws and Pyro, it is hard to turn a blind eye.”

“I know…”

“I will help.”

Lars’ face lit up.

“Thank you so much!”

“Enough of that.
Why is Pyro after the chimera maker? Why did you ask the kingdom for help?”

Chimera creators were the enemy of mankind.

If they asked for support, they would have been given a huge number of troops.

“If we ask, they will certainly be of help, but if that is done, the prestige of Pyro will be reduced.”

“What does that mean? If taking someone’s help brings down the prestige, then you shouldn’t have asked me to, right?”

“I asked because you are Count Welton.
Not because of your in-laws.”

And the talk would have never even come up if not for Sears’s name.

“What I am telling you should never reach another ear.”

“…go on.”

“The chimera maker that the church is pursuing.
He is.“

Lars’ eyes narrowed.

“He used the holy power of Pyro to create the chimera.”

“… then?”

“There have been more than ten priests who have been sacrificed by his hands.”
