Al is a slave born of a prostitute. Constantly bullied and degraded, Al’s life was hard but as long as his elder sister, the only family he had, was with him, he would feel like he could withstand anything. But one day his older sister sold herself to a noble to obtain money to free Al. Despairing, Al is ready to give up, but with with his friends’ encouragement, he starts working, hoping to one day buy back his sister.
However, a few days later, a servant of the noble came to him and handed him a bag, claiming he was delivering the body back to its place because disposing of it was troublesome. At the very moment Al looked inside the bag, his mind broke.
“Why is it us, despite also being human, that are treated like trash by people? We all have the same ears and same eyes, and the same color of blood, but it doesn’t matter to anyone. Are we not human?”
He needed to know. He needed to prove them. Al has decided. From now on, Al and his sister would always be together.
As he gently rubbed his belly, Al made a vow.
– The next time, it will be their turn to pay the price.
With those words in his heart, he devoted his whole life improving himself and planning for this single goal.
Knowledge, power, deceit, bribing, betrayal; everything was valid. The first step was to rise through the ranks of the military, no matter the means.
It was going to be him the one to stand at the top of this unsightly world full of madmen.
