Never Die Extra - Chapter 453
The Great Ancient Wizard, Enter Additional Scenarios (3)
Like all of the Yo-Ma Great War series, Yo-Ma Great War Zero had many talks that couldn’t be resolved due to the remote background of Shimma and other limited characters. Even among the ten most powerful demons, there were two who didn’t even appear until the end.
Even the name of Imma Beato was revealed in work, but in the case of Shimma, even the names didn’t come out. Any demon belonging to Shimma would say, “Shimma is the weakest,” so it was presumed that she probably died without coming out of the Demon Realm.
“Besides, she’s a beast.”
“A demon in the form of an animal that is common among demons…a Beast.”
“But she’s too cute to be a beast.”
At Evan’s thoughtless words, Maybell and Mirole gazed at him. Evan realized that he had made a mistake, and he hastily moved to correct it.
“As far as the word beast is, she is. You guys are much cuter, of course.”
“Hmm, I can’t believe what you say, but I heard that I’m cute, so let’s move on.”
“I, I am cute…? Me…? Hehe.”
Mirole shows a shamelessly embarrassing expression. Evan turned his head, trying hard not to look at her sad expression. Aria was busy applying divine magic that affected Shimma Cattleya, who was nauseous with her hands on the ground.
“Oh right, you’re a demon. Sorry.”
Aria’s divine magic perfectly added extra blows, aggravating the suffering of Shimma! Evan took out the potion bottle and threw it with a sad expression. While suffering and holding her stomach, Shimma instinctively reached out to catch the bottle, put her nose on the bottle cap, sniffed, and looked at him with a suspicious expression.
“Human, are you trying to poison me? Preparing poison with such a blatantly seductive scent, do you think that, I, Shimma Cattleya, am a joke?! Gulp, gulp…”
“Is the name Shimma used for comedy?”
Instead of talking, she fell straight for temptation and drank the potion. When Evan was seriously agonizing about the genre of this DLC, Shimma, who drank a potion and was completely refreshed, raised her head and stood up.
“I’m really fine! What are you guys up to?!”
Shimma snatched the glass bottle up in her arms and stared at Evan. It seemed that she liked the taste and scent of the potion very much. Evan felt good, seeing the cat’s ears moving up and down above her head, unintentionally raising pure doubts.
“Is that really Shimma?”
―Actually, Cattleya was just born, honey.
A Succubus answered him without missing the opportunity. If so, it was weird. Just after being born, she was ranked one of the ten strongest people in the Demon Realm?
“Just starting with something that looks much worse than Diokas, there are many questions left. I wonder why there are demons who aren’t Succubus here.”
“You just have to explain that from now on.”
Because Evan said she was cute, Maybell’s vigilance against Shimma Cattleya was still breaking the limit.
Shimma shrugged when she felt Maybell’s gaze. Although she couldn’t see through the abilities of Evan, a human being, she could immediately grasp Maybell’s power.
“Well, what…ma’am. I didn’t do anything…ma’am.”
Because of her pride, she was afraid of Maybell’s power after speaking, so she cutely added ‘ma’am’ at the end of its sentences. In particular, the cat ears that wriggled slightly as if dull above her head were cute.
“You said you’re Cattleya, right? Come and talk with me.”
Maybell spoke with a light smile. As Cattleya moved toward Maybell and inadvertently glanced at Evan, asking for her help, Maybell noticed it and summoned her whip in her hand.
“Talk to me. And not my master.”
―A master? But you’re a queen! How can a queen call a human her master!
“I want to hear from you guys, too. From now, you can shut up and answer my questions.”
Maybell’s momentum grew when she came to the home of the Succubus! However, because Maybell’s appearance was pretty cute, Evan decided to leave her alone. It seemed easier to get information from the Succubae and Cattleya by leaving it to her.
“You guys, are you pretending to be so relaxed, knowing the situation in the Demon Realm right now?”
“What’s the situation like in the Demon Realm? Did you ever hear the story of the collapsed tower built by the Devil, or that the demons are dying in large numbers because of one human being?”
It was all Evan’s work.
“What? Did something like that happen!?”
Luckily, Cattleya looked furious, as if that weren’t a story that she knew. Then, she made a very shocking remark.
“But in the current situation, it wouldn’t be strange if that happens…thinking that the Demon Tribes are rebelling…”
“The Demon Tribe, fighting?”
Maybell blinked. The same was true of Evan, who was next to her.
“The power of the Demons has grown so much that the entire Demon Realm is in-fighting! Because they are trying to infect all the Demons, the Demons who have a lot of magic like me but can’t handle it properly have no choice but to hide in this place…”
Evan and Maybell faced each other in shock. So, was it that the Succubae and Cattleya were hiding here not because of Samma Dagero but because of the Demon Tribes? So what the hell was this? Did it mean that she was a weakling who was struggling without grasping the situation even though the Demon Tribes threatened the Demon Realm?
“Because of the Demon tribes, all of us beasts died…I somehow survived and got the help of the Succubus, but…”
―Because Shimma Cattleya has a strong magical power! It was a beneficial relationship because she helped maintain their barriers.
―Moreover, she’s pretty and cute, isn’t she?
―It was my turn to hug it and sleep tonight.
The Succubae added supplementary explanations. Indeed, the relationship between the Succubae and Cattleya was roughly convincing. But no matter how it was, Shimma was hiding in the barriers, saying that the Demons were scary. Cattleya shouted, staring at him with a frightened expression as if she felt Evan’s gaze.
“Shimma is just a name that other families gave to me after seeing my magical power! Moreover, those bastards feel bad for me too… ”
“Could you explain that to me?”
Maybell’s checks continued. Then she saw that one of the Succubus raised their hand to speak.
―Shimma Cattleya is certainly born with enormous magical power but calling Cattleya a Shimma was something the others did. Because Cattleya is extremely good as a mother.
“A mother? Oh, I see.”
Maybell’s expression looked extremely disgusted.
“I heard that if a beast were powerful, their offspring would succeed even further. She has a lot of magical power, which is enough already.”
“Uhhmm…I didn’t want to say this…”
Well, let’s say she had risen in rank for such insulting and blatant reasons, she wouldn’t be proud at all. Cattleya shook her head and cried. Perhaps one of the reasons for the tears was that they were being treated humiliatingly by Evan and especially Maybell, who suddenly came in. However… Evan was very sorry for Cattleya. Still, Evan couldn’t help but care about what kind of demonic child Cattleya ended up giving birth to in the original work.
‘If I had originally planned to give birth to a demon who is very important in the development of the Yo-Ma Great War series, my rescue of this kid from here could cause the future of the world to be changed…no, at the time I existed, everything changed, so what happened?’
Up until now, Evan has been moving based on the theory that “how one behaves, that is the result of which the appearance of the future world is completed.” If not, the future he knew at the time he fell into the past should have perished, and that would make Evan’s existence immediately impossible.
Of course, the future world refers to the world in which Evan lived, not the Yo-Ma Great War game. According to that theory, eventually, Cattleya was originally scheduled to meet Evan. Evan had no reason to kill Cattleya, who didn’t harm him, just because she was a demon, so he would eventually save her…
‘Anyway, I can’t figure out the reason why she didn’t appear in the main part of Yo-Ma Great War Zero.’
Next to Evan thinking, Maybell was further pursuing the Succubae.
“Then, are you hiding here to avoid the demons? You, too? Have you ever thought of joining with the other family members?”
―Oh Queen, what power does the Succubus have? The demons who are good enough to treat us as allies with equal authority are already dead.
―If we wanted to, we could have sacrificed ourselves, but I thought it would be better to make a barrier between us and hide. And even if we did sacrifice ourselves, I’m doubtful that it would result better than this.
The Succubus was a dream creature with the power of fascination. Still, it was only a dream creature that collected energy through dreams, not a prostitute that sold their body. Evan knew very well through Maybell that their guards were surprisingly strong, and he could understand what was hidden in the barrier.
“Moreover, something scarier than the Demons appeared…”
Cattleya was crying and barely stopped; then, she continued.
“They said it was the Spirit World. Those terrible things are transforming the Demon Realm. If the Demon Tribes join forces with the monsters of the Spirit World, then not only the Demon Realm but all the other worlds will be destroyed.”
That’s right. There was a Spirit World. Evan was stunned. Why hadn’t the possibility been considered so far? The Demon Tribe aimed at the gaps in creatures and encroached on them, achieving terrible evolutions. It was easy to predict that the compatibility of the two would be high.
“Hmm, I see. First of all, I understand the situation roughly.”
While Evan was contemplating, Maybell clarified the following content through the Succubae and Cattleya to investigate their situation a little more.
“You now have no houses or temples. Right?”
―Maybe we’d like a handsome man? Like the man that the queen is occupying right now…ouch!
“Don’t try me? Do you want to die?”
Maybell declared firmly.
“From now on, please obey Master Zero. That way, at least he will lead you to a better life than being stuck in this barrier.”
“Wait, Maybell? I thought you hated them?”
“They’re still my kind. I can’t let them keep living this miserable life.”
The power of a queen was felt from Maybell, who said that confidently. Evan let out a laugh and nodded.
“Yes, let’s do that. I don’t have to refuse if I have the power.”
“Yes, you are also a part of that.”
Evan glanced up and down the body of the demon girl with cat ears. Certainly, the word Shimma was made to look obscure by wild magic or an untrained body. Still, Evan wondered if she would become a more reliable force than the Succubae here if she were well polished. But he felt her gaze and shrugged. The girl’s cheeks turned red.
“You, are you looking at me with such obscene eyes? I am pathetic because I thought you would be a nice person…!”
“Well, should I fix your brain before your body?”
Enormous magic, a strong body. Evan thought she had enough conditions to be born again as a truly strong Shimma, not just in name. After all, knowledge and character education may be the first thing to work on.
“Then, will this castle be moved into the Necklace World first?”
“That would be great. After that, I have to go check out the Demon Tribe.”
However, the party soon realized a major problem. It was the fact that it became impossible to open the barrier and go back to the Demon Realm.
