    Angels aren't demons' divine enemies apparently.

    B. Erd can study her to permanently fix his problems.

    Come to think of it, that is kinda odd. What is divine, then? The manifestations of fate that gave over nonsense like the necklace at the start of the CYOA?

    Let's learn how baby angels are made. Hopefully the mating ritual doesn't turn out the same way that a praying mantis' does. However, I do suspect that giving in to our primal natures will cause us to go crazy and black out for a time, at least. Likely a more minor version of what would have happened had we decided to stomp Rin in Chapter 1, but the morbid curiosity of our angelic nature is really getting the better of me here. Let's explore it.

    Barbatos is most powerful and impressive, but a new hyperweapon has risen to humble the angelic foe! We would be fools not to make use of it.

    Fallen

    You give into your instincts, succumbing to the lust. How could you be expected to resist? Finally, after all this time, you are going to get your dick wet, and-

    The pleasure wipes your mind. A little death becomes a big death, and your essence slips from your being, sucked away by a process you do not comprehend. Perhaps you should have tried to find out more about the mating habits of angels before engaging in such an act… but then again, how could you be expected to resist?

    As the gratifying death continues in an endless plateau, with no end to the climax in sight, you begin to understand the why, if not the how: for the sake of the next brood, gestating within her. You feel nothing at this realization but acceptance, even pride.

    Everything you are is taken, and at the end of it, fully satisfied, you die.

    At least, the angel that you are dies, leaving behind the human that you were. Which is to say, a broken, shattered half-shell of a person, close to dying for the second, no, third time? You cannot tell, and the angel is no longer around. All that is left is the wind screaming in your ears, as you lie naked, on the verge of expiring in the wasteland that you created.

    ***

    “Well, so how are we feeling today?” asks Zayan,

    You just nod, bubbles floating from the corners of your lips.

    It has been a little over a year since Zayan managed to retrieve you. The destruction of Yuiria and your subsequent battle with the angel could be felt as far as Grahferde, and fearing the worst she had made hasty preparations to bail you out with a squad of golems. You are quite thankful to her for that – the golems had brought along with them a regeneration pod, saving your life.

    Your wounds are severe but nothing that the pod cannot heal with time. In the aftermath of your… dalliance with the female angel, it seems that you have somehow been turned back into a human. You do not know why or how, but you do know that you are still not entirely as you were. Not fully human, no. The Demon Lord’s heart is still part of you. What that means for you is something you are unsure about. Perhaps it would be wise to start researching your body. Zayan might have some ideas about that.

    The world has kept on turning during your convalescence, but it has left Grahferde alone for the most part. Turning the Methussian capital into a twisted, blasted desert had sent a message, but not in the way you expected. The angel’s flight – to the north, as the reports went – had been witnessed by many. It was no surprise that she then became the scapegoat for your actions.

    Well, considering the trouble you went through, you are perfectly happy to let the dice fall that way.

    The human kingdoms had been more in a panic about the angel’s reemergence and her alleged destruction of Yuiria than they were about your control over territory of a now dead kingdom. If you had really had your way, you would have wanted to parade yourself as the savior that captured the dastardly angel which massacred a city, but it is too late for that now.

    “By the way,” continues Zayan, “the Byarlant Empire has fallen, and some very interesting stories are coming from the survivors.”

    Survivors? It is true that the fall of an empire was fraught with casualties and refugees, but the way Zayan said it… Wait, for that matter, the Byarlant Empire was considered the superpower of this world. How would it even fall within the span of a year? But the angel that you encountered did head north, and if that was the case, then…

    “A swarm of grotesque, gigantic winged infants, they said.” Zayan peers at you over her half-moon glasses, an interested smile on her lips. “They’re saying it’s the end of the world. Even the monster kingdoms are on guard against this threat. Do you have any idea what that’s all about? These flying babies destroying the most powerful human empire on the continent?”



    **CHAPTER END**

    So we lost the Halo, aww. On the plus side, Erd is normal again, although he'll take forever to level up. On the other hand, Rin and the others may be as good as dead and suddenly DRAKENGARD! out of nowhere. Well, it is an effective way to quickly wrap up a story.

    EDIT: What was the Byarlant Empire again? I forgot. And what does Brobatos have to say about Erd's behaviour?

    Oh, all that mana, gone... well, this is about as well as could be expected. Genetic engineering our way to success should now be possible since the angel template is gone. I bet the kids will be great, too.

    Did anyone save Erd's stats at the very start of the LP?

    Edit:

    Well, I can't find that but the earliest angel stats are still available to look at and compare.

    Erdrick Mercant
    Lv. 50 Hero (Now)
    Vitality: B
    Mana: B
    Physical Attack: B (B+)
    Physical Defence: B (B++)
    Magical Attack: B
    Magical Defence: B (B++)
    Agility: B (B+)
    Charisma: B

    Lv. 1 Angel Lord
    Vitality: C
    Mana: B
    Physical Attack: C
    Physical Defense: B
    Magical Attack: C
    Magical Defense: B
    Agility: B
    Charisma: B

    Abilities:
    Angel Halo
    Your halo can absorb the ambient energy of your surroundings, constantly replenishing your mana and providing a passive increase to your defense against spells.

    Moderate increase: Mana, Magical Defense

    Those moderate increases are I think two parenthetical plus marks each for mana and magical defense. So, compared to back then, we'd be at:

    Vitality: +1 Rank
    Mana: (--)
    Physical Attack: +1 Rank, (+)
    Physical Defense: (++)
    Magical Attack: +1 Rank
    Magical Defense: No change
    Agility: (+)
    Charisma: No change

    This does not factor in the cooler recent boosts we'd gotten with the upgraded halo that were so close to taking us into deity-level stats in the departments of Mana and Magical Defense, the loss of which I'm almost on the verge of regretting right about now because I was kinda depending on those to keep our golem army powered. Not being able to spam Gigadyne as the answer to all our problems is going to be a bit of a sting, as it seems that we probably won't be able to pull one off that's nearly on the level of what we started our time on this planet with for a while. That also means that our skill with using our mana as a club to hit people with is basically gone now.

    But it seems that we've at least shored up all of our stats so that we're a pretty reasonable all-rounder. Regular offensive magic should be much more effective/efficient for what mana it drains than what we started off with, Erd is considerably less squishy and definitely packs a lot more of a wallop than he used to, and he's slightly faster. We're probably going to need to pivot more towards the use of Barbatos to solve our problems than happened before, provided that he isn't still sulking over Erd's having forsaken combat to instead die by sex.

    lol, I actually thought something like this might happen.

    Had the thought that it'd be something like a spider eating her mate afterward, so I guess we're lucky to be alive at all.

    Worth it. :M

    Our angelhood has served its purpose, men.

    We have children now.

    We're a father.

    And I just know these kids are gonna change the world.

    So proud. *sniff*

    Let me see, we annihilated two of the most powerful kingdoms, put the blame on an angel(ess) and diverted the attention from us and our homebase.
    We achieved unbelievable success with one real dicking, neverending climax mang, than all the previous retardo dicking around.

    Except for Zayan we might as well have slept the whole time as almost everything else we worked for is a smoking crater now. Erd was a lazy merchant hedonist who happens to be proficient in magic, not a moronic genocidal spaz. Tell me, what is the point of being an overlord over a graveyard?

    Are we still talking about the guy who at the beginning of our tale literally sold out his friends and the entire world so that he could marry a succubus with big knockers? :M
