“What the hell is going on?”

Camille bombarded Otto with a barrage of questions as soon as he entered the secret passage.

“You abandoned the estate and ran away.
You even became a lackey for an undead army, so why did you come back and….”

“Oh come on!”

Otto scowled.

“I told you I had a plan! Didn’t I?!”

“Did you… really?”

“So you’re saying I lied to you, even though there’s an army of undead marching into Soroon territory right now?”

“That, that’s….”

“And use some common sense.
Who wants to be an undead? We’ve got work to do.”

“Well, that’s… but….”

“Never mind, I’ll show you the results, but for now, just do as I say.”



Otto narrowed his eyes and glared at Camille.

“That’s a little short, Don’t you have something left to say?”





Otto sighed once, then looked back at Camille and gave the order.

“Knight Camille.”


“At dawn, the undead army, led by Nazrak, will capture Sorun, then head for Lassen, and once they’ve taken Lassen, they’ll advance on Orth, and that’s our chance.”

Otto pulled out a map and pointed Camille to a specific spot in the northern mountains.

“When the undead army advances on the Orth estate, lead your troops here.”

“What’s here?”

“A very old castle, overgrown and crumbling.”

“Why this place…?”

“The main body of Nazrak is here.”

“Is that true?”

“Nazrak has stored his soul in this castle, and it is only his shell that is leading the undead army now, not his body.
To defeat Nazrak, you must defeat the soul that is stored in this castle.”

“How on earth do you know such a secret….”

“It’s a trade secret, I can’t tell you.
So just do what I tell you.
Do you understand?”

“Yes, my lord.”

“And stop swearing at me.”

Otto glanced at Camille.

“You’re making my ears itch like crazy.”


“Isn’t that a dishonour? Are knights supposed to swear at the lord they swore allegiance to?”

“I didn’t… swear.”

“You’re lying.”

“….I did.”

“Even knowing that, you’d have your knighthood revoked and be demoted to a second-class soldier?”


“You did, you did.”

Otto said, giving Camille a shaky look as if he’d expected it, when he clamped his mouth shut.

“You said you trusted me, and then you doubted me behind my back and called me names.”

“That’s not what….”

“Never mind.”

Otto huffed and turned away.

“I’m going to go first, so meet me there when you’re ready.”


“It’s going to be a tough battle, so brace yourself.”

With those words, Otto disappeared down the other side of the secret passage.

“What the hell….”

Camille looked at Otto’s back with mixed feelings.

Even though he had changed, he was too much different to be familiar with.

Two days later.

“…So, we, the troops of the Lota Estate, are to attack the sanctuary where the soul of the evil undead lord rests, as ordered by our lord.”

Camille led the troops of the Lota Estate to the northern mountains, following Otto’s orders.

“That b**ard… no, the lord didn’t betray us?”

“My God, are you saying that the lord himself disguised himself as a servant of the undead lord to extract information?”

“You expect me to believe that now…?”

“N-no way!”

The knights and soldiers of the Lota Estate could hardly believe what Camille was saying.

That lowly b**tard had risked his life to become a servant of the undead lord Nazrak to extract information from them….

“Believe it or not, in order to keep this secret, he even took on the stigma of being a lackey of the evil undead! I’m sure you’ve all cursed him, but….”

Camille blushed slightly as he said that.

In truth, Camille had also cursed Otto from the bottom of his heart, so he had a guilty conscience.

“Now, our lord has changed, so our forces will follow his orders and advance to the sanctuary where the evil undead lord’s soul rests!”

The knights and soldiers of the Lota Estate took to the march in disbelief at Camille’s words.

* * *

Around the same time.

Nazrak, who had captured Sorun, and then Lassen, advanced on Orth with great momentum.

His army was now more than twice the size it had been at the start.

Nazrak had turned some of the warriors from Sorun and Lassen into undead monsters.

“Ugh, an undead army!”

“Don’t back down!”

The Orth Estate fiercely resisted.

However, they were no match for Nazrak and his undead army, which had grown stronger after passing through Sorun and Lassen.

– Excellent.

Meanwhile, Nazrak’s main body in the Sanctuary was watching the battle in Orth with satisfaction.

The Death Knight and Necromancer on the battlefield were a shell of himself.

An avatar of sorts, created with dark magic.

– Now, if I can capture that Orth estate, this entire region will be mine….


– ……!

Nazrak felt an army approaching his sanctuary and was horrified.

– Who the hell is invading my sanctuary!

Nazrak looked into the eyes of the undead monsters guarding the sanctuary and recognised the identity of the intruders.

The result.

– It’s him…!!!

Nazrak was furious when he saw Otto standing at the front of the invading army.

– That son of a b***h… stabbing me in the back!!!

Nazrak realised that he had been tricked by Otto.

But it was too late.

Nazrak’s main army was far away, fighting in Orth, and Lota’s army, led by Otto, had already entered the Sanctuary.
