Chapter 2: Tiro’s Potential

Previous Chapter

Next Chapter


I moved from the room where I made the new monster to a nearby living room.

Together with me in the room were Marcho, Aura, and Ruhe. I had given Kuina and Rorono a special, important task.

 

It has been an eventful day, to say the least.

I had just made a new monster: Tindalos, the hound that persistently hunted its prey across space and time.

 

Through the use of acute angles, she could come to and from the other dimension. Moreover, when exiting the other dimension, so long as there were acute angles within a 20-kilometers radius, it could instantly teleport to any of those acute angles.

It was a highly versatile and powerful ability, especially considering acute angles were everywhere. Even pebbles in the ground had them.

In other words, unless the enemy was aware of Tindalos’ ability and was countering them by being in a perfectly circular room, a surprise attack could be launched.

To make that surprise attack even more effective, Tindalos had another ability which allowed it to track any target it had seen once with its sight, regardless of whether the target was using any concealment skills or was in the other dimension.

So, if I so wanted, I could have Tindalos assassinate a hostile Demon Lord it has seen just once during a negotiation many days before.

 

“Such power, I can’t believe she’s a dimension-controlling monster.”

 

In addition to her unbelievable skills, she had absurdly high stats.

Generally, a monster that had dimension-controlling abilities also had inferior stats compared to other monsters of the same rank. However, due to the fact that Tindalos was made using three A rank medals, she was on par with even Rorono and Aura in terms of stats.

 

This perfect combination of skills and stats made Tindalos a very worthy addition to my war potential. I could offer no complaints in that regard. In others though…

 

“Oto-san! We’ve finished putting on clothes on Tiro-chan!”

“It was a real struggle. Apparently, Tiro hates putting on clothes.”

 

Kuina and Rorono entered the room like so, with a somewhat pouting Tindalos in tow.

For better or worse, Tindalos was a dog at heart. For that reason, the concept of shame was foreign to her. And yet, she possessed the skill [Human Transformation] which allowed her to transform into a young girl with dog ears.

In fact, just earlier, she pinned me down and licked me in the face while in that form and naked. The sight of a young girl licking me was bad enough, but a naked girl doing such things was worse still. It was borderline criminal.

And so, due to that, Marcho misunderstood the situation and christened me Pedocell.

 

“Garururuuuuu”

 

Tindalos uttered so and then rushed up to me to snuggle. It seemed like whatever reason she had for pouting was gone the moment she saw me.

Tindalos was adorable, but it was her adorableness that was troubling me, unfortunately.

 

“Tiro, you don’t have to always be using [Human Transformation], you know.”

 

Imitating Kuina, I referred to Tindalos as Tiro.

Calling a monster by a nickname wasn’t the same as naming it. There were no risks but also no benefits. It was just a more convenient way of referring to the said monster.

Thankfully, Tiro seemed to like her nickname.

 

“Garuuu ♪”

 

This child should have been smart enough to understand what I just said, yet she hasn’t reverted back to her dog form.

She must have some kind of aim or something to remain like this. Oh well, whatever for now. Before anything else, I have to talk with Marcho. If there’s anyone that knows how Tiro can use [Human Transformation], it’s gotta be her, the master of the [Beast] medal.

Speaking of, Marcho was busy drinking her black tea in front of me when she suddenly broke into a smile and said something.

 

“My, my. Aren’t you quite popular with the little kids, Pedocell?”

 

The misunderstanding from before should have already been cleared, and yet here she’s still teasing me with ridiculous nickname.

 

“For crying out loud, didn’t I already explain that what happened earlier was beyond my control!?”

“Yeah, yeah. I’m just kidding, alright? So, anyway, I’m guessing you want to know how that kid can use [Human Transformation] despite the fact that the medals you’ve used to make her doesn’t have anything to do with that skill, yeah? Well, the reason’s simple, really: that kid is Tindalos.”

 

I know that she’s Tindalos; what I want to know is how she has [Human Transformation]. But it’s Marcho. I’m she has a good explanation.

 

“Would you please elaborate?”

“I’ve read about that kid in a certain book in the [Creator]’s library. According to it, a Hound of Tindalos is pretty much what you wanted, a hound that crosses over to subspaces and manipulates time.”

 

I nodded to that. It was exactly the possibility that I wanted out of the countless possibilities offered to me, so I grabbed hold of it.

 

“However, that kid isn’t a Hound of Tindalos. It’s a being that transcends even that. What I’m saying is, that girl is Tindalos itself.”

“I… I see.”

 

I finally understood.

Thinking on it, because I used the [Beast] medal to make her, I arbitrarily decided that she was a Hound of Tindalos despite her status clearly stating otherwise.

 

“As you might know, a Hound of Tindalos is pretty much a lump of incomprehensible nightmare and Tindalos itself is even more so. That being said, only so much of it can manifest as a monster. In other words, its form—be it a dog or otherwise—is irrelevant. I mean, even stories about the Hounds of Tindalos didn’t explicitly describe it as hound, merely a congregation of foulness. As for why it takes the form of a humanoid, it’s most likely responding to your subconscious wish. And that’s why I was calling you Pedocell earlier. Get it now?”

“…it’s still not nice to hear.”

 

I acknowledged and agreed with what Marcho said. However, my desire for Tiro to take on a humanoid form still didn’t make me lolicon. All I wanted was a companion whom I could develop a bond with.

 

“Well, actually, there’s been something that’s on my mind. That girl’s [Human Transformation] might satisfy your wishes, Pedocell, but it’s much too weak. A monster of her rank should have something stronger, don’t you agree? Maybe it’s a skill that evolves after some level ups. Who knows, it might become something amazing, like a skill that allows her to assume other forms. Or maybe even give her a special human-based weapon.”

 

While Marcho said so, I looked at Tiro who was just tilting her head in wonder, oblivious in what was going on. Shortly after, she made a huge yawn, reverted back to her large hound form, and then began to sleep.

What an awfully carefree child.

It was pretty hard to imagine her to be something so frightening when she was acting like this.

In any case, I noticed something when she transformed. Despite returning to her hound form, her clothes didn’t get torn. On the contrary, the clothes even transformed to fit her hound body.

 

“Rorono, her clothes are amazing.”

“Mhm, if I may say so myself. These magic-power-woven clothes are made using Kuina’s clothes as reference. They exhibit the ability to change form based on the wearer’s current state. Due to the lack of time, however, this is more of a rush job and thus has rather poor performance. I intend to make a proper one later this evening. This child can’t use weapons like us, so I want to give her good protective gear at the very least.”

“How thoughtful of you. Thank you.”

“She’s my little sister, so this much is only natural.”

 

While saying so, Rorono petted dog-form Tiro’s head.

Thanks to Rorono’s caring and helping nature, I no longer had to worry about a nude young girl pushing me down.

 

“Rorono, Aura, thanks for everything. You may now go back to your duties. Kuina, Ruhe, and I will take care of the rest. We’ll be taking Tiro to the [Crimson Cavern]. She’ll often be fighting alongside Ruhe and sometimes be commanded by Kuina, so I think it’s best to familiarize them with each other now. Well, how does that sound? Kuina? Ruhe? You okay helping Tiro to raise her levels?”

“Yeah ♪!”

“Of course, patron. I kinda have to if I ever want an easier life, right?”

 

Great. It seems they’re eager to help.

Like that, Rorono and Aura left the room. Meanwhile, Kuina and Ruhe retrieved their weapons.

 

“Well then, I better head back too. I had fun teasing you, Procell.”

“Sorry, you came all this way and yet I wasn’t able to properly welcome you.”

“Oh, it’s fine. I just don’t want to be a bother. Take care of that kid, okay? Without a doubt, she’s gonna be helpful to you.”

“Yeah, I know. Hopefully, she could fill in for whatever Avalon lacks right now.”

 

Tindalos was a monster that could help Ruhe fight in the other dimension.

She also had the strongest tracking ability which could sense anyone wherever they might be.

Furthermore, she also could use [Transfer], thus eliminating our complete reliance to the crow monster that was sent as a spy by the [Time] Demon Lord.

Truly, Tindalos was everything I wished for.

 

There was also the monster that became available for purchase—using DP—when I made Tiro. It was only at B rank, but it was still a powerful and convenient monster. So much so that I was already considering buying a [Maelstrom] for it later that evening. Like this, Avalon was bound to get even stronger.

 

“Well, it looks that you know what to do. Give it your all, okay?”

“Yeah, I will. I’m running out of time, after all.”

 

I was referring to the 1-year grace period that was protecting new Demon Lords like me. If I let it by doing nothing, that time would be gone in an instant.

At any rate, I saw Marcho off.

After that, I took a deep breath and spoke.

 

“Kuina, Ruhe, Tiro, let’s go. Tiro, show us what you can do, okay?”

“Guruu!”

 

Tiro enthusiastically replied so. Hearing that, I couldn’t help but smile a little.

And so, all of us ready, we walked toward the Transfer array that would bring us to the [Crimson Cavern].

  1. Am I the only one who now fears walking as a hound could now appear between my foot and ground as I take a step due to the angle between my foot and the ground, also will hunt me throughout space-time. I have to start walking so my feet hit the ground without making an angle.

    • In my opinion, it’s more like personified a cthulu being but with limited powers, the limiter being that it should still be a monster and not a higher existence. Although one might argue that S rank monsters could already be considered as gods.

        Considering how they can continue to get more powerful as shown by Kuina’s ability to evolve into a celestial fox, I’m still reading god or some other crazy powerful being here. lol This also makes 2 Monsters(?) that he has summoned with connection to Cthulu. For a person wanting to live alongside humans that’s a little terrifying.

    Thanks for the translation!

    I’ve already said that the reason most of his monsters are young and pretty girls is due to him subconciously making them that way with the power of his medal letting him choose exactly what he wants. Buying monsters with points might also allow him to control such things to a degree, hence why all except the undead are female as far as we know. Since he subconciously doesn’t care which gender undead are since they’re undead, they end up random.
    This chapter has the first clear evidence that this is true.

  4. Just thinking of putting up a maelstrom? I would have put up 10 of them and perhaps take a look at the even lower ranked monsters available and make some maelstroms for them as well if i found any good cannon fodder that could swarm my enemies.

    He is too compasionate to his monsters and is severly lacking in the quantity of monsters, if an alliance attacks his elite group WILL get overrun if this keeps up, [Evil] had the right mindset, he didnt even name any of his monsters since he risked losing them in the war against a strong enemy like Procell. But despite seeing his monsters as disposable objects he had a good amount of cannon fodder to use to stall for time.
    That war however was just a bad matchup for those 3, it was a good idea but sadly they underestimated their target..

    Anyway, Procell needs more monsters to use. He should have enough DP to create an army to overrun his enemies! Yet he doesnt, he have 2 maelstroms for the dragons but thats it. The Darkness Dragons are used as transportation and supply carriers instead of a force to overrun their enemies, its a real waste but Procell doesnt use their full potential and he doesnt have anything else to fill the void.

    Also, when i saw the human transformation? “Author-san, you just couldnt resist huh?” ^^”

    Thank you for the chapter and the treat! (^_^)/

        Golems, plus his already…3(?) Maelstroms of B class dragons (already highly luxurious since it requires a created S-class), plus his ever-increasing army of former enemies by way of Duke’s top-tier necromancy. And if he ever needs a bigger army of cannon fodder he can just call up Marcho (remember he now technically owns one of the most powerful dungeons). Once people figure that out, there won’t really be many cores touching him, at least not directly. They might be like Black and send legions of crusaders after him…at least until his religion gets off the ground. Also, he’s technically one of only 2 cores with an S-class monster, and THE only core with half a dozen of them, which now includes one of the most dangerous subspace nasties you could run across.

    • Thats why he plays with undead so much- all the skeletons he made at the beginning are powerhouses on their own, even though they were nearly free (and all the ones after actually were free and higher level) and use rifles and miniguns.
      Remember his dungeon shape- it’s set as a super long bottleneck for small amounts of higher power targets using longer range than even magic can do, so even with the numbers he has (never forget all the humans that attacked and the corpses he gained, and the corpses he gained by helping Stolas) he’ll probably be untouched.

        Bottleneck at the beginning, lined with flamethrower golems, lined with gas traps, ending with a double row of minigun wielding heavy golems. Second major room was a forest type room filed with elves lining the trees ready to snipe and undead picking off the lesser enemies…and it still has instant death traps like chasms where the other side has skellies pinning you down. Procell does NOT play nice in his dungeon specifically because he loves all his children/monsters.

      It really comes down to maths

      Let’s assume he’s being attacked by a demon lord who’s been around for 300 years and has an A rank medal ( of which probably only around 30 exist), if they were to maximize the number of monsters they have they would own on average 1200 A rank monsters, and at least 2400 B ranks for more B ranks they would have to pay through the nose for imitation medals with I think it was a 1/3 chance of a B rank per synthesis. Additional consideration given all their A and B ranks come from medals they would be a considerably eclectic lot.

      Whereas Procell with his maelstroms produce at least 2 B ranks daily for free, in addition they can produce golems which can take on even A ranks easily ( assuming good matchups) from outside of magical attack range, which he doesn’t mind losing. Finally his S ranks being nigh unstoppable. Also given that it hasn’t even been a year yet and he still has room to grow before that time is up.

      And also given that Marchos dungeon fits the first description I find it unlikely that Procell could be beaten, and give him ten to fifteen years I don’t think he could be beaten if all the dungeon lords came at him at once.

      • You forgot a variable- video game math.
        Level 1 Offense does say 10 damage per second.
        Level 100 Defense has an armor of 25 points, so any damage that isn’t at LEAST 25 doesn’t work. Also, the L100Defense has 10 points of regen per minute.

        A single Level 100 character could take on 750,000 level 1 guys all at the same time, no problem.
        These are just numbers I made up, because we don’t know those stats- we only know some of the others. Because of the rarity and difficulty of S classes (except for Procell) I’d say that each tier goes up by a factor of 50% quality compared to previous each time:
        D: 50%
        C: 100%
        B: 150% (Most demon lord monsters)
        A: 225%
        S: 337% (Pedocell’s loli-chans)
