We all gathered in front of the giant cage .

And inside of this cage, was a large wolf that was the size of a horse . It seemed to be in a deep sleep .

Goran looked at the cage and said,

“Is this mithril?”

“It looks like a mithril and orichalcum alloy . ”

It was the kind of durable enclosure that could keep a dragon inside .

Shia moved closer to it and inspected it with a serious expression .

Eric watched from behind and said,

“It is a great wolf… It is clear that it is a kind of monster, but could it be the Vampire High Lord’s familiar?”

“I don’t know . ”

Goran tilted his head to the side .

“Would he really place it in such a strong cage if it was a familiar?”

“That’s true . ”

As they talked like this, Shia stood up and turned to us .

“I know what it is now . It’s a sacred beast . ”

“A sacred wolf?”

“Yes . According to legend, the sacred beast wolf is our ancestor . ”

“I see . So it’s like what Lord Gerberga is to Luchila?”

“A little different, actually . ”

Shia explained .

According to legend, the sacred beast wolves and beastkin wolves had a common ancestor . So to Shia and the others, the sacred beast wolf was like a distant relative .

“It is a little different with Lord Gerberga, who is worshipped . ”

Of course, they did pay their respects to each other .

And like the beastkin, these sacred beast wolves were immune to the charms and blood of vampires .

“They are very intelligent, so you can talk with them . And it won’t attack you . ”

“If that’s the case, we should release it . ” “That’s true . ”

And so I decided to open the cage .

It was locked with magic, but there was nothing a little force couldn’t fix .

But even after it was opened, the wolf was still sleeping .

“Hey, wake up . ”

“Grrrrr…”

No amount of shaking worked .

“Could this be…because of Sleep Cloud?”

“It might be . ”

Perhaps it had weak resistance to psychological status effects .

And so I used dispel magic on the wolf .

“Grr…growl! Grr…rrr!”

The wolf got up and then jumped back into the cage as if to get away from us .

Then it began to howl . It seemed scared and cautious .

“Calm down . We’re not going to hurt you . ”

I said . Then I entered the cage and stretched out my hand .

“Grrr…grrr . . grrrrr…”

Then it jumped at me . What was it again that Shia had said about it not doing that?

I dodged its fangs and then moved in . And while using a barrier to block the claws, I hugged it .

“There’s no need to fight . We killed the vampire . ”

“Grr…gr…”

It continued to thrash around for a while but finally became quiet .

“I don’t know for sure…but it being here could be due to them conducting experiments in order to decipher the power of beastkin wolves . ”

“Really?”

“Grrr . ”

Judging by its answer, Shia might have been right . That was really sad .

After hugging the wolf for a while, I let go .

“You’re free now . You can do as you like . ”

“Grrrooff . ”

The wolf shook its tail and then licked my face . I suppose it was saying thank you .  

“I think we should take this cage as well, just in case . It is orichalcum, after all!”

So saying, Goran tossed the giant cage into his bag .

“Goran, that bag is insane . ”

“You agree? It’s a good one . ”

Goran said smugly .

After that, we looked at the rest of the rooms .

This was so we could kill the sleeping lessers and possibly find any captured humans .

In the end, we were able to save 5 beastkin and 20 humans .

Once we left the High Lord’s base, there were several hundred beastkin warriors outside to meet us .

They had come to help after beating the Vampire Lords .

“We killed the High Lord . This is a victory for us all!”

“YESSSS!! Ruff-ruff!”

Eric declared, and the humans and beastkin roared .

Shia was screaming ‘Ruff-ruff!’ with the other beastkin .

I guess that was their victory cry .

After that, we left the clean up to the beastkin as we returned to the palace on our horses .

“Hmm, it seems to be following us . ”

“It is . ”

For some reason, the wolf had been following us .

I got down from my horse and said to the wolf,

“What is it? You can do what you want now . ”

“Grr . ”

“You said it can do anything, so it’s following you, Mister Ruck . ”

“Grrooff!”

The wolf cried as if to agree with Shia’s words .

“It thinks that you are its rescuer . ”

“Well, I wasn’t the only one who did…”

“Grrroof!”

The wolf started licking my mouth . It was cute .

“It likes you . ”

“Alright, so you want to come with me?”

“Grooff!

The wolf’s tail wagged .

And so, just like that, we returned to the capital and headed for the palace .

The two cute princesses greeted us .

“Welcome back . I am pleased to see that you are safe . ”

“Welcome baack . ”

“I’m so glad to see you two are safe . ”

Eric said happily as he picked them up .

“It is because Miss Serulis protected us . ”

“Miss Serulis is amaazing!”

“Is that right?”

I looked to where the princess was pointing and saw Serulis and Luchila in a corner of the room .

There was a pile of magic stones in front of them .

“That’s a lot . ”

“Daddy . These are only lessers, you know? That’s not difficult for me and Luchila . ”

“But, all I did was make illusions . ”

“You both did very well . ”

Serulis and Luchila looked a little embarrassed as Goran praised them .

Perhaps Luchila’s illusions and Serulis’ swordsmanship made a good combination .

“How many of them attacked in all?”

“15 of them . ”

“That’s just frightful . ”

Eric’s face tightened . Even if they were lessers, 15 was hard to believe .

I inspected the magic stones of the vampires that Serulis and Luchila killed .

“Hmm?”

“What is it?”

“There are 2 stones from Arch Vampires in here . ”

“That’s not possible . This is inside of the barrier . ”

“But, look at this . ”

“So it is… These are Arch Vampire stones . ”

We would have to check these a little more closely .

One more chapter until the end of the first arc .
