"What I'm trying to say here is that he should not be in that position."

However, Guild Master Benjamin was from the same family as Bishop Verkis.

So, Bishop Verkis couldn't help but show displeasure at his words.

"Heh... No matter what, he's from the same family. I roughly know what you're thinking, but that's not it. No matter what, how can I abandon a family member? Even if I have my own greed, I can't do that."

"Then the interest payment on gold deposits becomes absolutely impossible. They will try to stop us in any way, and if they push for expulsion from the guild, how can we continue to hold the church's property?"

Rockefeller continued to speak toward the silent Bishop Verkis.

"And he is trying to turn the church's property into his own Banco in any way. That way, he will receive the gold storage fee from the gold deposit."


"I know it's difficult for you to make a decision because he's from the same family. But in this situation, you should carefully consider who is more beneficial to you."

At that, Bishop Verkis's showed doubt.

Something felt strange.

"So... what do you want to say?"

"To be honest, what do you think about me taking Benjamin's position? I'm asking for your opinion, Bishop. I've always been on the side of the church, and on your side as well."


Bishop Verkis looked surprised.

He hadn't expected Rockefeller to say something like that.

"You're saying now..."

"From what I can see, you've always been dissatisfied with the Lyon Guild. They hold church property but dare to think of charging a storage fee for gold coins. But if you say anything, you can't do anything because they're from the same family. Wasn't this your true feeling?"


Bishop Verkis, who had been coughing awkwardly, reluctantly admitted it.

"Honestly, you're somewhat right. I've always had complaints about the guild. But I couldn't say anything."

"Is it because the guild leader is from the same family?"

"That's right. If it weren't for that, what would stop me from saying what I want to say to him? I am the church, and the church is me. My words are the will of God."

"I think so too. Your words are indeed the will of God."

"But he does have some influence as the guild leader here. He holds all the money in this place, so his words become the law here. So, I've been discreetly watching him."

"Even so, the words of a guild leader cannot be higher than the will of God."

"You're right. There should be more people like you here, but there aren't. Everyone is watching the guild leader."

"It's a shame. Everyone should have the same thoughts as me."

After a brief silence.

Rockefeller repeated what he had said.

"So, I'm saying this. How about placing someone who agrees with your intentions and is loyal to the church in that position? Wouldn't it be better for you to have someone loyal to you in that position rather than someone else?"

"But he's still from the same family."

At that, Rockefeller smiled briefly.

"Has being from the same family ever benefited you? On the contrary, isn't Benjamin blocking the church from benefiting?"


Bishop Verkis, who had been constantly clearing his throat, frowned and asked Rockefeller another question.

"But can you take that position? Aren't you not even a Goldsmith yet? How can you take the guild leader's position when you're not even a Goldsmith?"

"That's true. I'm not a Goldsmith or anything yet."

"I heard that to become a Goldsmith, you have to be a member of either the Lyon Guild or the Black Label Union. You're not affiliated with either of them, so shouldn't becoming a Goldsmith be the first step before you talk about that?"

"I've thought a lot about that too. So, what do you think about this?"

"What are you saying?"

"Since my relationship with the Lyon Guild is not good due to the interest payment issue, it seems that the path to becoming a Goldsmith by joining that guild will be blocked. Benjamin will not allow me to become a Goldsmith unless I withdraw my interest-paying business."

"That's true."

"So, it's not certain that I can go to the Black Label Union and talk to their representative. They might also have strong opposition to my thoughts."

"That's possible."

"So, I've thought about this."

Bishop Verkis sat quietly and waited for Rockefeller's next words.

"First of all, becoming a Goldsmith is only possible with the permission of the royal family. However, the royal family finds it bothersome to select Goldsmiths one by one, so they have delegated that task to the two banking unions. In practice, any banker belonging to the two unions is automatically recognized as a Goldsmith."

"So, what are you going to do?"

"The situation is as follows, so I would like to make a proposal to you, Bishop. Becoming a Goldsmith ultimately only requires the permission of the royal family, not the approval of the guild leader."

Rockefeller immediately continued.

"Please help me, Bishop. Then, no matter what happens, even if our bank fails, I will continue to hold the gold coins you entrusted to me."

It wasn't a difficult task from his standpoint.

It was much easier than rejecting a family member.

"So, you only need the royal family's permission to become a Goldsmith?"

"Yes, you don't need to complicate things, just the royal family's permission is enough. And I don't think it would be difficult for you, as a bishop, to make such a request to the royal family. Besides, being a Goldsmith isn't such a great job that the royal family would refuse your request."

Bishop Verkis also began to nod, convinced to some extent.

"That's true. My influence isn't that small, so the royal family won't ignore me. No, they can't. The moment they ignore me, it's a big deal. They're belittling me."

"I will do my best for you, so please make me and my brother Joshua Goldsmiths first. Then I'll handle the guild leader-related issues here."
