The Empress of Darkness and Seven’s League
The great empire Val Nar which dominated the Tiseira at the early time was came to the ground by suddenly spread god’s infection “Garura Fever”. The Naga who was dominated by the Garura succeeded to the World’s supremacy, but Naga also disappeared by the rebellion of human and elves.
Afterward, the world’s supremacy fell into the human’s hand.
Thus, the elves who is deprived of the initiative of civilization to the human laid a finger on prohibited magic for their reinstatement. The Empress of Darkness, Massaerath who is descended upon the world by prohibited magic of the elves, destroyed the civilization of the elves with strong power of the magic and ruled the barbarian of the north, giants, and snowmen. The Queen’s Land, the strong nation of the north which threatens the Tiseira, was established by that way.
The Empress of Darkness Massaerath who is the queen of the evil wicked- spirits killed the elves and annexed countries for the purpose of the supremacy of the Tiseira. Many countries were absorbed forcibly and perished by armed force of her. Moreover, her military force increased whenever she took a step forward.
At least in the western area, it seemed that there was no one to discourage her.
When barbarians who is lead by the Empress of Darkness ‘Massaerath’ invaded from the north part, nobody thinks about the federation of seven cities. However, there was an elderly magician who formed a league of seven cities.
The wizard Shielz Hassen who is the Tribune of the city state ‘Odessa’ and the dean of the Tower of Black Pillar make seven city states, ‘Odessa’, ‘Barandale’, ‘Ginia’, ‘Alonzo’, ‘Syslidgue’, ‘Daffenal’, and ‘Magassen’ as one federation.
The most elite troops from the seven city states were unified as a whole under the command of the ‘Acias’ who is the disciple of the Shielz Hassen. And then they succeeded in beating off an attack of barbarians of the ‘Massaerath’.
The ambition of the Empress of Darkness is dejected by them. The Seven’s league, that is the shield of the north, was established by that way. After the invasion of the ‘Massaerath’, the people make the Seven’s league as one United States and one nation in honor of the contribution of the Shielz Hassen and the Acias. The huge city states’ alliance was formed bloodlessly by the combination of seven countries which have their own culture and history.
The shield of the freedom stops the invasion of the Empress of Darkness.
The Seven’s league as the strongest civilized country of the west became the new leader which strives for mastery of the Tiseira.
But, there was a deep-rooted friction among the Seven’s league, and then there were a still threat of the Empress of Darkness.
Chapter 1 – Princess Valle and brother and sister of calamity
Valle Estrada stood on the watchtower with wearing a blue-white armor. Dragon-scale combat cloak, blue-white armor, and long flowing white-gold hair shined at the dark of the night, so all the people and the military looked at the watchtower ecstatically. Valle Estrada who is held in high esteem as one of the seven patron saints of the Seven’s league, that is a federation of the seven cities, worked her own duty in silence.
“Princess, night wind is cold. You can come into the inside”
The Ceroll, who is the aide of princess, said with worried tone of voice beside her.
“Do I catch a cold by night wind?”
Princess Valle Estrada saw the aide with a smile as she heard a joke.
When porcelain-like skin and blue pupil like a sapphire stared at an aide, her senescent aide escaped her eyes bashfully. This old soldier who fought around her from his early ages became a boy in front of her even though he already had a grand-son because she is really beautiful.
A porcelain-like skin and blue pupil like a sapphire, and the flare of will which blazed up in her pupil fascinate the people without distinction of sex or age. Even though there is a long scar over her right eye, that scar never defames her beauty. But rather, that scar was a last touch that makes a warrior Princess Valle Estrada. A scar makes her not a doll in the glass-fronted cabinet but a living, breathing warrior.
“Even though you are a Dragon’s Avatar, how about are you taking some rest?”
“There is no time to rest in this situation”
“There is news that one of small countries of the north was captured by the Empress of Darkness, and there are an endless flow of refugees along with the Linan River. This is not a strange situation that enemy invades on some occasion, and she could not sleep on a calm conscience as the high general.
“Ceroll. How about taking some rest? Aren’t you old as a human?”
“No. I am not old. I can’t pass on this position to the young.”
“Though. Ah, a present rank of your son is captain? Right?”
“He is not suitable yet. He doesn’t have an ability to assist her. I can’t grant a concession of this position to anyone over my dead body”
The old military officer who spent his whole life at the battle field shook his head from side to side. A thought that the next seat of Princess Valle Estrada was captivated by someone make him bleak. Even if his son wants to that position, he won’t make any concession. By his attitude, Valle Estrada just had a smile.
“By the way, refugees continuously come in to this place. Soldiers are also very tired for inspection.”
“Yes. Ah, do you hear that story?”
Ceroll talked to Princess Valle Estrada with all smiles. Since guarding the watching tower at night is boring. So, if anyone initiates a conversation like this, nobody hates this conversation. And then, Princess Valle Estrada also picked her ears and listen.
“What kind of story?”
“The Solram which was collapsed in today send an envoy to return the refugees”
“Is Solram collapsed? How dose perished nation send an envoy? Moreover, it’s shameless request.”
Returning the refugees was same with that they were killed. They were not any help to save the people and rather kill them who escaped from the death. There is nothing to talk about this.
“The problem is that the king of Solram made an agreement with the Empress of Darkness, and then the Solram is not collapsed yet legally. Do the Empress of Darkness and its faction probably manipulate the king as a marionette? Most of the people talk like that. Requests of an envoy are quite lawful”
“Do they manipulate him with a magic?”
“I think that is not true, but rather the king was originally a person of small nature. If he fends for himselves by devoting the nation, he can directly throw away the nation and the people.”
“Considering that kind of things, he contrived to endure one month. I think that there are not many countries to endure one month from the Empress of Darkness.”
Princess Valle tilted her head sideways. Of course, the Empress of Darkness didn’t carry out a full-scale attack. Distance between the Solram and the ‘Queen’s land’ where is dominated by the Empress of Darkness is quite long, and that root is obstructed by the Nathgarl Mountains that is the most dangerous zone of the North. Nonetheless, such small country like Solram could not endure one month.
“It, That, I heard that the general of the Solram is a prodigious tactician.”
“The prodigious tactician?”
Eyebrows of Princess Valle lifted. Since she was a soldier, she was also a little bit concerned that someone is the prodigious tactician.
“Yes. Surprisingly, the prodigious tactician has guarded a full-scale attack for 1 week without any help. Whether it’s true or not, all the refugees extol his contribution.”
The Ceroll who is the aide of the Princess Valle talked that story with excitement. He was really thrilled that Princess Valle showed an interest to his story.
“Hmmm. He looks good people. If he didn’t die yet, I want to use him at my side.”
“Of course, He was dead. All the good people are dead earlier.”
“Hmmm. Is it true? But then, the refugees come into like this since he was dead.”
Princess Valle stared at the up of the Linan River. At that time, something jumped to her eyes.
Princess Valle rubbed her eyes. After rubbing her eyes, what she saw was not changed.
“That is Wyvern”
“Wyvern? Is it Wyvern?
“Yes. That is the Black”
Princess Valle picked up combat hammer and shield which she put down beside her. Astonishingly, one of the ‘Lord of Despair’, the general of the Queen’s land who is found favor with the Empress of Darkness, came down from the north of the Solram.
