Adventure in a multiracial town 2
It has been a long time since I came to the adventurer’s guild.
No matter which guild is in, it is still bustling with activity. The atmosphere is noisy due to the meeting of drinkers and adventurers, but because the race is more diverse than the Earl’s territory, it has a completely different charm.
The receptionist lady at the counter wasn’t human either, but a wolf beastman race.
“Welcome to the Adventurer’s Guild, if there’s anything I can help you with, please let me know. You’re probably here to commission adventurers, right?”
Guild staff still misunderstand me because of my child’s appearance, but I’m already used to it.
Not knowing that I’m an adventurer, guild staff who meet me for the first time would probably react like this.
“No, I came to handle adventurer’s registration. I already have a guild card, but the beastman child over here hasn’t registered with the guild yet, so please let her register.”
“Oh, well …… No, I understand. Then please allow me to do the registration procedure for you.”
The staff receptionist lady seemed startled for a moment, but once she saw Momiji, she very simply nodded her head.
Huh, that’s strange.
In my time, I was told a lot of things like not to underestimate the profession of an adventurer and not to do it because it’s dangerous. ……
I want to know the reason why Momiji was treated differently.
Let’s find out.
“Aren’t you going to stop us? No, I don’t mean I want to be stopped.”
“Because it’s unnecessary. If I were a human receptionist, I might have been deceived by her appearance, but as a beastman, I know that she is a calestial species. I’m sorry, but I’m not qualified to talk with those of calestial species.”
What? A calestial species?
No, after all, Momiji is a Japanese youkai, so she is definitely not a calestial species.
But she acted as if she was treating Momiji as if she was a racial superior.
It’s true that there are all sorts of superior races within the human species, such as human‧heroes, high elves, high dwarves, celestial beastmen, and so on, but of course Momiji doesn’t apply to any of them.
Well, since it said to be calestial species, I understand that she refers to those of calestial beastmen, but how did exactly the judgment made?
“Hey, Mister. I, am I a race called Celestial Species? I thought I was a youkai just like my mother and sisters.”
“No, probably that receptionist-san misunderstood.”
“What is the misunderstanding? I’m sure.”
Momiji was confused by the receptionist’s judgement, but don’t worry, you’re truly a youkai.
However, Nine-Tails seem to be a land god, so if it comes to the final evolution, maybe it won’t belong to the category of a youkai.
However, our surreptitious conversations seem to be completely audible to beastman with good ears, and the receptionist-san immediately denied it.
“What kind of foolishness are you talking about? Celestial-sama. Listen well, I don’t know who you are, but you are the hope and heroic bloodline of our beastmen race. And your companion brother-sama doesn’t seem to have inherited the beastman blood, but it would be sad if you couldn’t recognize your own position.”
“Eh! But… But ……, eh?”
Overwhelmed by the receptionist lady’s imposing presence, the cowardly youkai was once again confused, though it felt wrong.
Hang in there, Momiji, you’re not a creature of this world per se, are you.
First of all, I want you to remember about this.
“Listen up, Celestial-sama. As a Two-tails, you are not only a heroic bloodline, but also a bloodline with the qualification of a king. Since this country consists of various races, no one will harm you, and even if there were, our beastmen race might risk our lives to protect you, but originally you should have already been protected in the capital of the beastmen race and given the proper education, right?
The receptionist lady who approached with a machine gun conversation had a very serious expression, giving the impression that she was worried about the future of the beastmen.
In other words, the reason why Momiji is judged to be a calestial species is because of the increased tail?
It’s true that celestial beastmen have various characteristics, such as having two tails depending on the race, or having a different hair color than the original species, but I hadn’t seen a celestial species of fox in the app, and I didn’t know about it since the era had progressed to the Middle Ages while I was character making in the first place.
“And you, who are the elder brother of Celestial-sama, are too. Didn’t your family teach you that your sister is a Celestial species? Indeed, it’s my honor to have Celestial-sama register with the Adventurer’s Guild, and I’m sure you have power. However, if you don’t even carry guards, it would be too lacking in vigilance.”
“Ha, ha …….Is that so?”
Her response accelerates with more heat, the adventurers around her were already starting to make noise, so hopefully she would help register quickly.
The adventurers around her were talking about “Is that a Celestial Beastman?” and “Why is Celestial-sama here..”. … All sorts of things were starting to get strange.
“I hope you’ll stop here. He’s an important companion of mine, so please don’t blame him too much.”
“Oooh, that’s really rude of me, Celestial-sama …….Then, please allow me to continue the procedure. Incidentally, it seems that brother-sama’s side already has a guild card. But what is his rank? I’m sorry to say this, but if only two of you forming a team, even as Celestial-sama’s elder brother, we wouldn’t able to entrust you to him without considering his strength.”
She seemed to realize that she shouldn’t have interjected, and a hint of apology came out of her expression as well.
However, even if the existence of the Celestial Species was important to the beastmen in this world, from my perspective, I wasn’t going to accept such an order.
Or rather it’s unreasonable.
I don’t know what a celestial species is, but in the first palace, Momoji isn’t calestial beastman, she’s a youkai, and it’s out of the question for a receptionist who is a stranger to me to complain.
However, Beastmen have their own values, and I’m the one who created them.
So a little difference in values is acceptable, but I have no intention of handing over Momiji to a stranger, so if you’re asking me to prove my competence, I’ll prove it to you.
To put it bluntly, I want to test my skills with my current power.
I can fight in replay mode, but I don’t know how well my power will be evaluated in the field.
I’ll accept that.
“The adventurer rank is C. If you’re not satisfied with that, I can prove my strength. Would you like to have a mock battle?”
“Eh, rank C! Ah, no, no, …… nothing. Even though it’s a C rank, that rank is still within the range of ranks that can be given unconditionally based on the judgment of the branch guild chairman. Can I confirm whether or not brother-sama actually has that power?”
“Well, it’s fine.”
It is true that this level is not so much the accumulation of many commissions, as it is the rank that the former Earl Wilson Gallhart given as he felt that my status as wild recovery magic user was dangerous.
There’s nothing wrong with what she said.
But I know.
In my opinion, having been to the guild many times with Mizzet and having seen all sorts of mid-level adventurers, the power of a Paladin can no longer be measured by a C rank.
