Lord, Bird, Pilica, Haine
STORY & ILLUSTRATIONS No.14:
The Forbidden Demon God that Towers the Heavens
An ancient, immemorial age. The king of the demon gods who ruled over the demon world, massacred the human world, and challenged the heavenly realm. Its body was massive enough to cover the sky. At the end of the war, the armies of the angels were unable to destroy it, sealing it instead in a gap between worlds. It was expected that after an eternity its body would falter and die in oblivion, yet the spirit of the demon god did not vanish. Once the world is filled to the brim of demonic power, the king shall descend once again, wielding its forbidden power.
Lord of the Heavenly Prison

TL note: The text is too small to read, but it’s probably some variation of “goes very fast.” The sacred bird is very likely to be one of the many forms of Simorgh, because of the wording used and the ring-shaped structure in the back.
“Pilica” enters the “Sacred War” as a member of the “Gusto” tribe.
In order to create “Zefraath” to stop “Tierra, Source of Destruction”, “Pilica” yielded the power of the “Zefra.” She once again becomes a warrior of the “Gusto” as “Laplampilica”, and joins “Reeshaddoll Wendi” and the others in the “Sacred War.”

Yields the power of the “Zefra”
“Haine” Struggles Acting as the “Master”!
Witchcrafter Confusion Confession
On the very day a major client comes to visit, the head of the guild, “Master Verre,” is nowhere to be found!? Amidst the chaos, the great plan, “I am the Master: Haine”, to set “Haine” up as the head of the guild begins. Will “Haine,” who keeps fumbling this major role, be able to overcome this difficult situation?
Bottom: “Vice-Master clasps”
Schmietta: “[…]” (something related to how the clasps were made, but it’s barely readable. Either about how it was her who made them, what she used to make them, or where she made them)
End of chapter
TL note: “Master” is the OCG title for “Madame Verre.” I’m using “Master” over “Madame” because it easily conveys that this is the title of the person in charge of the guild.
