Chapter 45: The Hero obtains wings

Translator: Tseirp


“I see.”


Ruti nodded expressionlessly after listening to the Contract Demon’s explanation.


“Ye-yes! I am absolutely not hostile toward the humans of this continent. I belong to the faction that wishes to subjugate the heretic Demon Lord that oppose God. It is true that on the Avalon continent, demons are a race hostile toward humans but we are believers of the same God, the Supreme God Demise. In order to deal with the heretics who oppose God, we are capable of putting aside past grudges and fight alongside humans!”


As the Contract Demon desperately spun its words, Ruti listened with a smile that only her brother could understand.


(So this is the truth of the existence of demons. Interesting.)


Her big brother would have been astonished if he was here, after all, they had exchanged countless hours of discussions on their observations.

Ruti thought to herself regretfully. Even that slight fluctuation in her feelings caused the Contract Demon to tremble in fear and stifle a scream.


At the moment, the Contract Demon was being questioned in Ruti’s tent with both its arms and fingers secured with chains.

Nothing had been done to it other than having questions asked but the demon understood the absolute difference between it and the young female creature seated in front of it. It had no willpower to resist and merely wished to survive.

The hero party waiting outside the tent were secretly sympathetic with it suffering a questioning in a tent with the Hero in it but the demon did not know that.

Albert had been tied up and questioned by Ares but Ares had already judged that he did not have any significant information and had left him alone.


“So, this drug is the ‘Devil’s Divine Protection’ huh?”

“This is a drug made using the hearts of Axe Demons so it would produce a pseudo-Divine Protection of the Axe Demon. The strength of this drug is that it can interchange levels with a person’s innate Divine Protection.”


“Yes! Taking one dose of this drug would transfer one level to the Devil’s Divine Protection. Also, not taking this drug for one week would cause the Devil’s Divine Protection to return one level to the person’s innate Divine Protection.”

“And so?”

“The greatest advantage of this is not that effect but the lowering of a person’s Divine Protection’s maximum level. As you all know, a person’s Divine Protection level can only grow by defeating a being with Divine Protection of same or higher level. Although the Devil’s Divine Protection will not grow as one fights … by using this drug, it could give the effect of temporarily reducing a person’s innate Divine Protection level so that the person can experience efficient growth and his combat ability would not drop as well due to the Devil’s Divine Protection!”


This was actually the true reason why the recipe of the God’s forbidden secret medicine was told to the demons, who are the most devout out of all the races.

To the demons, the Devil’s Divine Protection drug was not a medicine meant to deny Divine Protections but a medicine meant to raise Divine Protection levels.


“I see.”


Ruti crushed the powdered medicine wrapped in paper that she snatched from the demon in her hand.


“This will be useful in the subjugation of the Demon Lord?”

“Ye-yes! Although a person on the level of He-hero-sama shouldn’t expect much from its effects.”

“I’ll give it a try.”



Ruti swallowed the medicine without hesitation in front of the demon’s eyes.

The demon’s eyes were wide in shock and it was at a loss for words.

Of course, the demon’s goal was to pull in the Hero. It handed the medicine to the Hero as it thought that there was a possibility the medicine could strengthen the Hero to aid her defeat of the Demon Lord.

However, it never imagined that she would swallow the medicine without any hesitation in such a situation.


“It is because poison, disease and curses are ineffective against me. If this was not a medicine, my resistances should have activated.”


Ruti carelessly explained perhaps because she noticed the demon’s gaze.

But the demon was taken aback as cold sweat emerged from its entire body after hearing those words.


(Curses? Curses!? She has complete resistance against curses!? This is bad, this is bad! That medicine was made by stitching together the grudges from the slain Axe Demons that had transformed into curses along with the Demon’s Divine Protections that should normally disappear upon death! If the curse would not activate, there is a possibility that the Axe Demon Divine Protection would be lost!!)


But it was too late.

She had consumed the medicine.

It should make her vomit the medicine out before the medicine is absorbed into her body but the Demon did not have the freedom nor the power to do so.


The demon prayed to God.

Please, may the Devil’s Divine Protection manifest its effects.




Morning the next day.

Ares and Theodora were in shock.


The two of them watched the flying ship sail away without being able to do anything.

The tied-up Albert showed an anxious expression without knowing what was happening.


“What happened?”

“I don’t know, the flying ship was stolen … ?”

“Don’t run away from reality. The Hero and Tise are not around. We have been left behind.”

“No-no way! That is impossible! How will they fight without my magic?!”

“She probably can.”


Theodora coldly replied and ignored Ares as she investigated the empty shell of the Hero’s tent.


“This is …”


She found the fallen corpse of the Contract Demon with its head cut off.


“There was no way she could have been fooled by a demon … that’s obvious.”


There were a few camping tools and equipment left behind but the important items were all kept in the Hero’s item bag so the Hero’s journey should not be hindered.



“No-no way!?”


Theodora was violently shaken by the item she found on the floor.


“The proof of the Hero, the legendary amulet made of Orichalcum that was sealed in an ancient Elf ruin!”


Even though it was located within the forest near the Imperial Capital, in the deepest depths of an ancient Elf ruin that nobody has ever stepped foot into, Hero Ruti obtained that amulet which she used to make the world acknowledge her as a hero.

Ruti would never let go of that item as long as she was a Hero … but, in reality, the proof of a Hero had been found there on the ground.


“I guess I will head to places where there have been sightings of a flying ship.”


Theodora left the camp on her own.

    Thanks for the new chapter!

    • kirindas

      Hoping that medicine lets her meet her brother again without being restrained by the HeroDivine Protection.

      • Scipo0419

        I feel that’s exactly what happened, her emotions that were locked by the Hero’s Divine Protection probably got unlocked and she was like “fuck this hero shit, I wanna see Nii-san!”

  4. Bob

    I’m guessing the level of her Divine Protection was lowered, enabling her to ignore the compulsions and go seek out her brother instead.

    • DigimasterHiro

      Remenber, the Asura demon said that the devil’s divine protection is an alteration of a drug that can unleash a humans full potential. The Devil’s divine protection works using the grudges and curses of the sacrificed demons. Ruti is immune to curses, ergo, only the medicines original effects( whatever that is) are left.

  5. Dave

    SHE’S FREE!!

    And I callled it last chapter!!

  6. Ilovecats

    Thanks for the chap,
    Finally the hero party has disbanded and Ares is left to rot lol
    Wonder whatll happen when the yandere sister finds out her brother is with Lit

  7. Carlos

    Thank you for the chapter, so Ruti is free ish from her divine protection and went chasing after Red ?

  8. I really wanna see Ares beaten to a pulp by Ruti in front of Red

    • Felipe

      I’m more surprised that she didn’t literally beat him into pulp at the first sight that the drug worked, I wonder if the demon at least told her about red or how to make more of that drug before she killed him

  9. Michal Malík

    This was satisfying. Thanks for translating.

  10. Filip Dinca

    Yeah, as expected she jumped on the drug like a hungry wolf(remember she could not chase after her brother since she hurt ares, and her divine protection forced her to heal him), and I also think she got to know about Red’s location. The problem is for Lit, then also the other companion without an arm.

  11. Zax

    A wild hero is on the loose. Thanks for the chapter

  12. Ie

    Crazy mindset Imouto is comming……!!!!

  13. Nyamsus

    Ruti : screw this, I quit my job
    Fly to get her beloved Onii-chan

  14. CJ Carlet

    I smell blood bath between the little sister/Ruti and Lit….

  15. Primo23

    when a hero quits her job for her Onii-chan lol
    Thanks for the chap ~

  16. Gewehr

    Oh boi she got redbull now shes unstoppable

  17. Thanks for the chapter.

    As long as Ruti doesn’t turn yandere, both Red and Lit should be safe…

    • Felipe

      Well, she is emotionally dependent of him, but if that will translate into romance and/or jealousy that remains to be seen…. maybe she will be satisfied with just being close to him

    • Inbetweenaction

      The girl who traded her levels of destiny of saving the world for levels in crazy axe berserker demon?

      Totally doesn’t sound like a yandere…

      • Felipe

        Well, to be fair she’s doesn’t WANT to save the world, she just want to be close to her brother, and hopefully that will be enough for her

  18. Dave

    Hmm.. So what is a name that rhymes with Red and Lit? Imouto will need one when she moves in to Zoltan.

  19. Gewehr

    Welp rip i guess she finally got that redbull now shes unstoppable

  20. PotatoZero

    She’s coming, Onii-chan

  21. Nyarlathotep

    Thanks for the chapter

  22. Mion

    Thanks for the chapter~

  23. Thank you Tseirp!!!

  24. Nyesh

    Thank you for the chapter.

    Ruti was quite clever. The ability to raise her level farther, making her more able to fulfill her role as a Hero, is something her Divine Protection would not only allow but possibly even encourage. But the very act of weakening its level would make it easier to resist (how much easier, we will have to wait and see). I wonder how many doses she consumed? If enough were consumed, her entire level as a Hero may have been replaced – for now.

    One thing to keep in mind is that after a week or so without more medicine she will start getting her levels as a Hero back. So she only has that long until she is once again under the control of her Divine Protection – which will compel her to regain her former followers and return to her former mission. So unless she seeks and finds the source of the medicine (presuming the contract demon did not know and tell her the recipe and what level of Divine Protection is needed to make it) she only has a week or so to find her brother.

    At least – being immune to curses when she consumed it – she will not gain the Axe User divine protection, so she won’t go axe-crazy (even if that *does* fulfill the yandere bro-con trope).

    It will be interesting to see what happens next.

  25. Zero

    holy shit RUN MC RUN your yandere sister is coming to town!!!!

  26. Kuzo

    Thanks for the chappu~

  27. daeng yoja

    Thank you for thr chapter

    If i know some super yandere girl coming for me, in my love nest, i would run away…
    but yandere imouto? I’ll welcome
    By the way, it takes me couple minute to remember Red real name

  28. Not important

    Well that was quick, no hesititaion or well emotion just take the medicine, Considering from some of the pictues that have been floating around hero might just move in with borthers and become a regular character, even taking a bath with Lit at some point, although keeping the mostly emotionless face, I have two guesses on what happens next, first the gods panic that their hero has become unrestrained and though circustance make Theodora into some sort of hero, because she is holding the proof of a heroes, while she goes and looks for the real hero, in this Ares tries travels with her till she kicks him out. Or Gods can’t interfeere for what ever reason and the war stalls out, While implied that humanity was losing the war before the hero appeared, it is possible that the time the hero created was enought time for the nations to become strong enough to at least fendoff the demons but not advance, probably with the help of splintered demon factions, in this the demons would also be restrained in their movements for a time as their biggest threat has dissapeared from the battlefield without a confirmation it is unlikely that a major battle would be instagated by the demons for fear of a trap, so the war stalls and the we have a build up of forces on both sides which is boring and will never really be the focus as we follow our two leads, the hero, Theodroa and Ares look for the hero looking for red, and red trying to not stand out.

  29. Brad

    I have a feeling the contract demon told Ruti about red and lit. Even though it’s an alias I think Ruti would see straight through it! She is either excited or really angry!!!!!!

  30. Reaper Phoenix

    Thanks 4 the chapter!

    So the drug work for her? Hopefully without the side effects since she has immunity towards poison and curses.

  31. ResidentialPsycho

    The hero’s gone rogue! Everyone, RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

  32. Darkwhiz

    This what happens when someone try to micromanage someone elses life. Once they get chance to break free, everything will be released.

  33. Kvetha

    Thank you very much for the chapter!

  34. Flag Detector-san

    Thanks for the chap~ Also…


  35. Cutie Meow


  36. Azure

    Will you continue this series till the end?

  37. karmafalcon

    Instead of Divine Protection of the Devil, it should have Divine Protection of the Imouto

  38. Kel

    The demon was so afraid of Ruti he started praying to God HAHAHAH

  39. 4Curses

    My guess, the “divine protection” is really a curse by “god”, to force people to stay in 1 probably almost randomly assigned class. While without the curse, the system would funktion like in most LNs, that you can learn any skill, as long as you become proficient in.
    You might loose something like the skill correction, or not beeing able to allocate point to any skill, so it would be good old Skill level= grinding proficiency, instead of lvlup and put points in

  40. Zeo

    Warning Yandere level max has been unsealed!
    Bro-Con mode engaged!

  41. Random reader

    Man the story is somewhat extremely fast compared to the title, mc gives up resistance to love in few chapters, hero party situation is shown within 30 chapters of start, demon’s actual history revealed and byueei identity revealed in next chapter, honestly I thought the drug wouldn’t effect her much and this would happen a lot of chapters later… Again plot dash. But now I feel with berserk from devil protection she might harm lit…. Noo not that ,totally enjoying this

  42. Yago Coca

    Is this gonna become a second “Hero? I Quit a Long Time Ago”? xDDD

  43. Lol, I have sympathy for Theodora, but I’m laughing so hard at Ares being left in the dust.

    So, I gather that the drug, by allowing a “career change”, allowed that girl to finally drop every restriction related to Hero (always fighting, never abandonning teammates, etc) and look for her oniisan ? I don’t think she could recognise it was him just by Albert’s description tho. maybe.

  44. So what the heck the drug did?
    It lowers the divine protection level and that can display the “full potential ” because of freedom by getting rid of the stupid divine protection?
    Since it gave the axe class because it was altered so if the axe is gone what does it give after lowering the divine protection?
    Iam way more interested in this drug now
