The worst and strongest villain. I became a narrow-eyed character Arsene Adel. DBT,Korean,Novel,Translation,Academy,NEVDA,Fantasy,Possession,Assassin

We walked around the capital, looking around.


Contrary to my expectations, the capital was pristine.


The war that had taken place 10 years ago. In its aftermath, hadn't the Demon Realm been preoccupied with restoring its buildings?


But the capital that I saw now was unusually clean.


The tall, Western-style houses and the lively voices that could be heard.


It was hard to believe that there had been a war here 10 years ago.


As I pondered this discrepancy, I came up with a plausible reason.


'It is possible.'


The reason why the capital was so clean was simple.


During the war, the humans had been victorious in their battle against the Demon Realm, but they had failed to capture the capital.


For the Demons, the capital was their last stronghold, and they had succeeded in defending it.


Since it was a good thing, I decided to let it slide.


Tug.


Rene grabbed my sleeve as I was lost in thought.


Only then did I turn my head to look at Rene.


“Let's eat that.”


“That…… Ah, you mean the street vendor.”


The place Rene was pointing at was a street vendor grilling meat on skewers.


The colorful combination of vegetables and meat looked quite appetizing.


I approached the street vendor and asked the owner.


“What dish is this skewer?”


“It's called Buck Skewer, made with Buck and vegetables. It's our signature dish!”


Buck?


It was the first time I had heard of that animal.


It must be an ingredient that only exists in the Demon Realm.


Since I had only eaten the meals provided by Crete, I was hesitant because it was unfamiliar, but……


……Looking at Rene, who was smacking her lips next to me, it seemed to be quite a delicious ingredient.


“I'll take two.”


“Thank you!”


When I paid, the street vendor gave me two skewers.


I gave one of the two Buck Skewers to Rene.


Drool.


Rene immediately began eating the Buck Skewer.


I also followed Rene and took a bite of the Buck Skewer.


'……Delicious.'


A light flavor like chicken spread in my mouth.


It was a taste that even I, a modern person, could enjoy.


Among the meals Crete provided, there were some that I wondered if I could eat them……


This is as good as it gets.


“Does it suit your taste?”


“Yeah, it's delicious.”


We walked through the streets of the capital, chatting.


Rene still had a stoic expression, but I could now tell that she was smiling slightly.


As we were walking like that.


I stopped in my tracks when I saw a huge statue in the middle of the street.


It seemed to be a statue modeled after some figure.


'Who is it?'


Somehow, it looked familiar.


I tilted my head and tried to guess who the statue resembled.


And soon, the answer came to me.


It looked exactly like Diana, the woman who would soon ascend to the throne of the Demon King.


However, I did not know its identity, so I asked Rene.


“Who is the subject of that statue?”


“The first Demon King.”


Rene glanced at the statue and replied as if she couldn't believe I didn't know.


Her words piqued my curiosity.


Wasn't that the figure who had founded the Demon Realm with the Seven Demon Gods?


In other words, an ancestor to Diana.


I wanted to take a closer look, so I approached the statue.


Aah…….


The necklace I had brought from Sytan began to react.


A ghostly object that required a god to be offered to discover its identity.


However.


'Why is it reacting now?'


That was when I wondered.


Swoosh...


This time, the statue of the First Demon King reacted.


Countless particles erupted from the statue and formed a single line.


The particles began to gather and settled on the necklace.


I was so taken aback that I couldn't react.


'What did the others see…?'


I hurriedly looked back at Rene.


Rene just tilted her head as if to ask what was wrong.


That meant that I was the only one who had seen the phenomenon just now.


Then, did I see something that wasn't there?


'No, I definitely saw it.'


I shook my head.


Because there was evidence.


Clear proof that what had just happened was not an illusion.


'Because the color changed.'


The original necklace was white.


But now, one of the circles on the necklace had turned grayish.


It wasn't the color of the largest circle that had changed, but only a small circle, but that alone was a great harvest.


'...Perhaps this necklace is highly likely to be related to the First Demon King.'


If so, that meant that in order to uncover the true nature of the necklace, I had to investigate things related to the First Demon King.


It was an artifact that even Adel had avoided answering about.


There was definitely something there.


However, all I had figured out was that this necklace might be related to the First Demon King in some way.


The necklace still didn't show any reaction even when I poured mana into it.


"What are you doing?"


Rene asked me as I quietly fiddled with the necklace.


I quickly put the necklace in my pocket.


Rene, who had been watching me with a curious expression, gestured for me to follow her.


"Yes, yes, I'm coming."


"Hurry up."


I sighed as I watched Rene urging me to hurry, but obediently followed after her.
