Epilogue

 

 

Later. Due to the scattered elements and magical power from the ice dragon’s corpse, Lunéville experienced some abnormal weather in the way of snowfall.

While the commission completion was being processed on the branch’s first floor, both Ilya and Frank, as well as Annabelle, a branch staff member that assessed raw materials, scowled at the ice dragon’s horn that was taken out to be assessed on the third floor’s parlor.

“Ilya… what do you think?”

“… Either way, it’s strange.”

Right. When Anabelle asked that, Frank responded saying that the horn was odd.

Usually, horns in general—not just a dragon’s—would reflect the elements that the creature carried. The color on the surface was irrelevant, but the color on the inside… for ice dragons, it should be blue with some green particles sprinkled throughout.

However, the color inlaid in this horn was black.

“… Monstrification.”

“Monstri… what?”

“Do you know about the thing called miasma?”

The two looked at each other and Frank nodded.

“It’s the mist that turns something into a monster when you stay in it too long, right?”

“That’s the general consensus, but it’s actually different. It’s toxic to most living things, but it is something like a drug for monsters that invigorates them and increases their magic source. Miasma is similar to a powerful medicine that incites monsters into mutating and enhances them, sending them into a frenzy. It is called monstrification as the miasma mutates the magic source inside the bodies of monsters.”

Although the two people were staring in puzzlement at first, Frank opened his mouth in confusion before long.

“But didn’t you say that dragons aren’t monsters?”

“Yes. That’s why it is unlikely.”

If it went through monstrification, its nature would be forgotten, and it would travel meaninglessly… even the reason it attacked people until being injured could be explained by its intellect dulling.

However, the problem was something different. What caused it?

The only things that are able to cause monstrification and tamper with the bodies of living things that aren’t monsters… was a demon.

Demons that were powerful enough to even interfere with the bodies of divine beasts, higher forms of life?

Those capable of that? They were called evil gods.

    1. *gasp!!*

      NOOO!! They killed Vnee!!! Poor him, we’ll never hear his cute “Pikkyaa!!!” whenever he sees Anri again!

          1. The Geneva convention forbids cruel and unusual punishment. That one is definitely cruel and unusual in the extreme. 🙂

  3. This the end of the chaper?
    Thou has mine gratitude for thou hard hard.
    A rest and a cold acholic beverage thou deserve. Unless ye are a minor then ORANGE JUICE!

  4. And thus completes chapter 3, with a nice start to our next antagonist it seems.

    Edits/suggestions:

    “it should be looked blue with some green particles sprinkled throughout”
    “should look blue”?

  5. ‘Monstrification’ … I see. I was wondering why Ice Dragon-chan did not run away when it got injured. After all, there did not seem to be a reason for it to engage in a ‘Life-and-Death’ fight.

    Thank you for the chapter. I think you did great in cutting down the chapter into parts with mini-arc content. Made it easier to read and probably easier for you to TL.

      1. oh, is the side story actually part of Vol 1? i thought it was like an in-between volumes as ive rarely seen extra chapters after the Epilogue.
