Chapter 1 – The Rumour About the Ractos Duke House
The Rumour About the Ractos Duke House.
This is a world where magic and monsters exist.
One of the countries, known as the Azolias kingdom, was greatly admired due to its political and military power.
However, in that country, there was an administrator which was constantly gossiped about and was publicly thought to be dark and evil.
No, not only just the administrator, even his family was gossiped about.
-Ractos duke household-
As the administrator of the Azolias kingdom, the head of Ractos household, Grid Ractos had a broad frame for a man. However, he was quite fat and seemed very dislikeable; his eyes always appeared to be scorning you and his mouth always seemed to be provoking.
Every action and conduct, he took was oppressive; it gave the appearance of someone who stood at the top.
He had deep, blood-red hair and his eyes were darker than a shadow.
His voice was deep and heavy, almost like a devil who had come to contract your soul.
It was commonly thought that he was a corrupt administrator who controlled the dark side of the kingdom and moved behind the scenes.
His wife, Lilliana Ractos.
She was so beautiful, one would not even think she was older than 40.
Her jet black hair flowed to her waist, accentuating her sexiness, lithe body and her youthful vigour.
She always wore a jet-black dress that seemed to be connected to her hair and her eyes were a deep enchanting crimson.
She often spoke in a sweet tone, like a seductive succubus. However, off puttingly, she also had a large earth spider as her pet.
She was commonly known as the [Arachne Duchess] and it was rumoured that if you displeased her, you would end up as food for her spider.
Eldest son, Jake Ractos.
He appeared to be a young man with a tall and thin body, always looking like he was half asleep. His pale red eyes sleepily stared at you, while his mouth always appeared to be scoffing.
From his expression, you would think he was always plotting something.
It was rumoured that under the hair that covered one of his eyes, there existed an eye that resembled that of his pet snake’s.
At just twenty years old, he had already perfected his control over sorcery and furthermore, he was able to utilize the extremely rare [Shadow Sorcery], or so it was rumoured.
Materialized from his own shadow, it’s look as if there’s a black serpent accompanied him in his surrounding.
Because of his appearance, he was known as the [Incarnation of the Devilish Snake]
Eldest daughter, Erza Ractos.
Her blazingly red hair was curled and seemed as if it was fire. Underneath that mane of hair, a reddish black eye always appeared to glare at you. It was often compared to polished obsidian.
Elza was a fighting prodigy, having graduated at the top of her class in Knight School at the mere age of 16.
She wasn’t like other girls who were always interested in dresses or jewels, and rather disliked them. Instead, she usually wore jet-black full-plated armor with a reddish-black double-handed sword that seemed to radiate waves of heat, tied to her waist.
It was because of this that she was known as the [Black Swords(wo?)man from Hell]
She is said to be able to face down any opposition and cut them down mercilessly, along with their souls.
The bad rumours never seemed to dissipate. Yet, they were never validated either.
It was said that if there were eyewitnesses, they would be silenced.
That if there were mistakes, then they would be cleverly covered up.
It was said that the kingdom could not do anything to them because they held one of the country’s closest, darkest secrets.
The negative rumours never died out.
And so, let’s peek at the daily lives of the infamous Ractos household.
