“Assuming that Count Julem is dead, the problem after …… is the cleanup of the world war that Count Julem was trying to start, right?
The explanation from my point of view of the Battle with Silfheim was over, and the topic had shifted to the World War.
…… Count Julem’s people seem to have entered the upper echelons of the four major countries and turned them against this and that.
Even in his absence, the poison may not be completely out of his system.
…… I don’t like to get involved in bloody situations, but I may not be able to pretend I don’t know what’s going on here either.
Peter saw the look on my face and waved his hand lightly as if to dismiss my idea.
“No, actually, I think I can handle this one.”
“Can you …… solve that?”
I listened to Peter’s explanation and tilted my head.
To be honest, I thought it would take longer than that.
It was true that James and Shame had to hide themselves from Kudor, so they could no longer interfere in the affairs of the major powers.
In the past, they would blend in the Bunrei’s of the country’s leaders, but there were only two of these spirits left, and they knew that if they made a blatant move, they would be attacked and killed by Kudor.
In addition, even if they took the risk of forcing a war, they would not be able to reduce Kudor’s spirit body or magic power because they would not be able to make a decisive move.
However, even so, Count Julem and the others must have been preparing to draw the war around the Dinrat Kingdom at any time.
Even if they were gone, there was no way the matter would be resolved easily.
“I’m sure that Count Julem doesn’t have a hand in this, because the Riveras Church Kingdom had originally escaped from Med’s control thanks to Abel-chan. I’ve got spies in there, but there’s nothing strange going on. Pope Sateria is now in charge, but I don’t think she’s going to mess with us. There’s even talk of the Dinrat Kingdom lending its support to the Pope’s rule in order to stabilize the neighboring countries. Besides, that girl loves Abel-chan.”
Peter said disgustedly.
I also felt my own face twitching.
In order to unite the people of Riveras, who were torn apart by the fake god Med, Sateria has succeeded in uniting the country by creating an apostle of Levi, modeled after me, to represent a new religion.
As a part of this effort, she seems to be desperately trying to invite me into the Riveras Church Kingdom, and is sending me letters inviting me to join.
I’d like to help bring the country together …… but I don’t think I can stand the bizarre sanctimoniousness of the country.
I’m sorry, but I’m going to pretend like I don’t know.
“Abel …… You should never go to that country. It’s not only for the sake of the country, but also because she really is in love with Abel. Mea knows it.”
Mea grabbed my wrist from the side and squeezed it.
“…… Rather than that, it’s just that she loves the Riveras Church Kingdom and really sees Abel-chan as the hope of the Kingdom. She’s willing to do anything for the country, but she’s not willing to enter into a political marriage.”
“Eh …… What do you mean by that?”
“Didn’t they try to force Abel-chan to be the Pope during the Med riot? Maybe if Abel-chan goes to the Riveras Church Kingdom, he’ll be forced to marry her and become the husband of the Pope, making him a major figure in the country.”
Peter said something outrageous without hesitation.
“Well, even Sateria-san won’t go that far ……”
“She will. To be honest, the country that holds Abel-chan seems to be the winner. It’s the quickest way to get them to marry someone with power in their own country, and I’m sure that’s what Sateria-chan is thinking.”
…… I think you’re overestimating things a little too much.
“Back to the topic at hand …… I have access to many powerful people in various countries, so I’ve been using back channels to contact the upper echelons of the Maharaun Kingdom and the Galshard Kingdom to get rid of anything that might be a factor in the war.”
Peter said and began to talk about the current situation of the Maharaun and Galshard kingdoms.
According to Peter’s story, the Maharaun Kingdom seemed to have one of the Five Grand Masters, the head of the country, mixed in with Jeem, an offshoot of Silfheim.
It seems that Jeem had imprisoned Rimud, the Fifth Grand Master who was connected to Peter, in a dungeon and blackmailed the other Five Grand Masters to become the actual ruler of the Maharaun Kingdom.
Peter seems to have succeeded in getting in touch with Rimud, who had somehow escaped after Silfheim’s death, and is in the process of explaining the Silfheim riot to the other Five Grand Masters.
At this stage, there is no need to worry about a war with the Dinrat Kingdom due to the influence of Silfheim.
And in the Galshard Kingdom, it seems that James had taken control of the church and was conducting magic research on a large scale.
Not only was he researching reincarnated sorcerers like me, but he was also developing a variety of other dangerous magic.
After James’ disappearance, it seems that there were forces trying to take advantage of his plans to start a war, and there was an internal struggle between the peace faction and the war faction.
However, it seems that the number of warring factions is not very large.
Peter has been gathering information behind the scenes and intervening with his own organization’s sorcerers, and although it’s not completely over yet, it seems that the problem is generally under control.
…… It’s been a week since then, but they’re acting terribly fast.
In all honesty, I may have underestimated Peter a bit.
He is the shadow ruler of the Dinrat Kingdom.
As long as the other party is not Count Julem, he seems to be able to intervene in the upper echelons of other countries and stir things up.
“…… The only thing is, when I made contact with them, I don’t know where they got the whiff, but they sent me a letter saying that they wanted me to meet with Rimud’s and Galshard’s leaders, as well as the sorcerer of the Marren tribe. Abel-chan, you might want to stay hidden for a while.”
“I-Is that so ……”
…… I wonder if I’m in a dangerous position right now.
“You should not be lured into going to another country by goods or money. You’ll get caught in the middle and you’ll never be able to move from that country again.”
“I’ll keep that in mind ……”
…… At any rate, thanks to Peter’s dark deeds, the risk of three of the four major powers, the Riveras, Maharaun, and Galshard kingdoms, attacking the Dinrat kingdom under the influence of the Silfheim has diminished considerably.
And the sky country Alfheim with the loss of Moon Din and the change of the king, is not in a position to mess around with the Dinrat Kingdom ……
“I guess so …… When Abel-chan came back with the King of the High Elves, I was really surprised. I don’t understand what it means, or rather, I couldn’t even understand what it means.”
…… that’s right, I ended up bringing back Olviga during the High Elves’ coup d’etat riot.
I helped him because he was so pitiful, but to be honest, I kind of regretted it.
I heard that while I was in bed with sore muscles, he did as he pleased in the Fage territory, and was half killed by the collector in the tavern for getting carried away.
I’m sure he’ll be kicked out of Fage territory soon.
