Author's Note

"Hello, Amélie here. It's already been several months since a newbie showed up at my house. She's a pretty strange one. She makes these sudden, unpredictable movements and yells "waaaaaaaa!!" out of nowhere. And I think she's getting bigger kinda fast... She's insanely cute though! That said, I am going to have to teach her one thing: the fact that I'm the cutest one around here!!"

After he entered the Shadow Palace, Zagred made his way to Ronne's chamber and switched bodies.
  • The Light Magic during the massacre of the Elf Tribe was actually the devil's magic.
