As an assistant to the Demon Lord’s Four Generals, Dariel had an important task. However, now that Lord Granbarza is gone, the new leader has decided to give him an important announcement.

From that moment on, Dariel has been fired, and not only that, but he has been expelled from the Demon Lord’s Army for being unfit, lacking powers and being the worst qualified of all the soldiers.

With no objection or complains, Dariel accepts the orders and leaves the place, remembering that for a long time, humans and demons have continued their fight.

Regarding his appearance, there is no particular characteristic that distinguishes a demon from a human, the only difference is the use of magic.

Heartbroken, Dariel sets off on his way aimlessly, and after several days, he begins to feel tired and hungry.

After spending 32 years in the service, he suddenly has to look for a new way of life, but most of all, he thinks that if he doesn’t eat something, he won’t have to worry about finding a new profession.

At that moment, he listens a woman scream, and suddenly sees her jump on top of him. She is chased by a huge creature and Dariel decides to defend her; However, due to hunger, his body does not respond as he wanted and ends up knocked down.

He spots a knife in the girl’s belongings, and decides to use it, even if it represents an humiliation for a demon. Without hesitation, he stabs the monster and kills it.

Marika, the young woman, thanks Dariel for helping her, and tells him that he has fought like a hero, which is a disgrace for a demon like him.

Dariel thinks it’s a bad idea to stay with a human, but before he can leave, Marika asks him to come with her to her village, and that at least she can thank him with a nice meal.

A hungry Dariel thinks there is nothing wrong with him and agrees to accompany her. There, Marika introduces him to her parents.

Dariel begins to feel worried, if they discover his past as a demon, they will most likely torture him to death.

When telling his story, Marika is immediately moved and suggests that he stay in the villa, which, although modest, has space for someone like him, capable of risking his life for a stranger.

Finally, Dariel accepts the invitation, and the next morning, Marika’s father tells him that he is the leader of the adventurers’ guild and decides to offer him a job with them.

Dariel remembers that only humans can perform the magical registration, and he fears that he will be discovered, he tries to escape, but Marika takes his hand and ends the ritual.

Growing up among demons, Dariel never doubted that he was one, and in that moment he remembers that Lord Granbarza found him and gave him a job in his army.

Dariel’s new training begins, and to the surprise of the guild leader, this man is able to master all the elements naturally, seeing his talent, he suggests that he go to a bigger city, but Dariel prefers to stay and work with them.
