He’s not as weak as Zepes but Liorg is still weak .
To me the difference is so little it’s basically the same, however, I’ll give him a bit of a good evaluation due to his enthusiasm to risk his life using origin magic .
I’ll teach him what a magic battle is all about . He’s nothing but a sapling in my eyes but I’ll favour him a bit . Is this parental affection on my part as the founder?
“Though you are very inexperienced it was pretty good of you to stake your life on it . In consideration of that, I’ll give you one chance . ”
While speaking I walked to a certain place .
“A………chance…… . . ?”
“That’s right . And the chance is… . . this”
I draw a magic formation using the charcoal that was Zepes .
I put my hand in the centre of the formation, grasp something and strongly pull it up .
Zepes’ body appears in the formation but it’s not Ingaru this time . The meat is too rotten for that .
“What… . . this magic…… . ? What’s this ominous magic power? What the hell is this?”
“Is this the first time you’ve seen it? This is Decaying Death . Put simply, it resurrects the dead person as a zombie . ”
“Impossible…… . it’s moving…… . it’s moving like its alive?! Such magic………you monster!”
“What? Such an exaggeration . This is really easy magic . ”
Zepes who had revived as a zombie gets up and moves towards Liorg . His eyes are dead and drool is falling from his mouth .
“Aaaaaaaaaah!! It hurts… . . ithurtsithurtsithurts……… . . elder brother……why did you kill me…… . . why was I killed……… . . elder brothter………why………”
“… . Stay back…… . you’re dead…… . . begone!!”
Without hesitation, Liorg casts Demon Lightning at Zepes .
The demon lightning was wrapped up in black flame as it approached Zepes . His Demon Flame burnt it out completely .
“What……!? Zepes’ beat my ……… . . ”
“That’s due to . Those who are resurrected by it gain great magical power . As compensation for receiving those powers, they burn with the hatred they had when killed and are tormented by the pain of their wounds which will never heal . ”
Liorg’s brows knit together
“…… . . Is it Zepes’ purpose to kill me…… . . ?”
His pride as a pureblood would not let him live with the disgrace of being hurt by his younger brother who he looked down on .
Knowing this I used on purpose to mess with Liorg .
“Unfortunately my tastes are not that bad . I told you I’d give you a chance . ”
“…… . What is this chance?”
“I’ve already told you that your idea of power is misplaced . You killed Zepes because you thought him useless and weak but now he’s stronger than you as a zombie . First off, amend your idea about your brother being useless . ”
Liorg is carefully taking distance from Zepes while I’m talking .
“What does changing my mind have to do with anything!?”
“Do I have to explain everything to you? Accept your younger brother, combine your powers and face me . ”
“Wh… . . what……!?”
He looks very surprised . It seems Liorg didn’t know that you can combine powers so he would never even have thought about relying on his younger brother .
He must only have seen him as an enemy that was now a zombie .
“Bullshit! You said that those that became zombies burned with hatred for when they were killed and suffer unending pain!! There’s no way this thing is sane!”
“Aah, that’s true . It’s a never-ending hell . It would be better if you died, however-”
It seems Liorg still hasn’t noticed .
“It can still be done if you brothers get along . ”
“…… . Wh………!?”
“Show it . Show me the bond between you brothers . Match your powers and come at me . ”
“Bastard… . are you serious? Rather than living as a zombie, the best thing I can do for him is to kill him . ”
“That’s just running away and making it easier for yourself . Believe in it . Your brothers’ bond . Forget your positions, forget younger and older and just accept it . ”
Liorg groaned while frowning
Fumu . He’s running out of time .
“Hate…… . . hate……kill………kill…… . kill………!!”
While muttering in a trance Zepes summons a jet black flame in his hand .
“Aaaaaaaah… . aaaaaaaaaah… . pain……pain…… . pain……kill……kill…… . I’ll kill you!”
burns even hotter as Zepes grudge intensifies . Pretty sure Liorg is dead if that hits him .
“So, what will it be? Will you make up?”
Their bond as brothers should wake up if I drive him here .
“… . . I’m sorry but I never saw him as my brother . ”
“How naive! Then now is the time to get along . Clear away your feeling and hatred . Now, call it . Call your younger brothers name . I suggest you be quick and honest because if you fail to show your bond you will die!”
has now turned into a huge fireball . It’s going to be released at Liorg any time now .
I know it though . Their bond of brotherhood is strong . In the age of myths, mazoku would do this if one sibling died so they could carry on protecting the other one as a zombie .
In the current age, the mazoku have become weak . Magic has degenerated and become weak, however, a brothers bond is something that will not change with time .
“You’d better say it!!”
Liorg shouts out having made up his mind .
flies straight towards Liorg and envelopes him in black flames .
Liorg turned into charcoal
What’s happened to the bond between brothers in this era?
