Such horrible luck.
That well-built man from the Connoisseur Guild had indeed sent him in, and he knew beforehand that this mission was going to be like drawing a lottery.
The best result for him was for Roel Ascart to be all alone. He could swiftly get the job done and retreat as quickly as possible. It would have also been fine if Roel was with a random guard. Under such circumstances, as long as the guard wasn’t too powerful, he should still be able to take care of the situation quickly.
As for the worst possible scenario, it was for Roel Ascart and Nora Xeclyde to be together with one another. The members of the Xeclyde House, possessors of the Angel’s Bloodline, were not people who could be dealt with easily.
‘Don’t play schemes with the Xeclyde House , this was a common consensus amongst all of the evil cults in Sia.

However, if you wish to play the assassination game with us and threaten our lineage, then we’ll use the full power of the Genesis Goddess Church to decimate you. You can run wherever you want, but you’ll never be free.
It was fortunate that Peter’s goal wasn’t Nora, so his fate wouldn’t be as tragic as that ancient cult. Based on the directives he had received from his superiors, he just had to temporarily keep Nora under control, so that he could kill Roel Ascart before making his getaway.
But, of course, things weren’t so easy in practice.
First and foremost, it would be hard to keep Nora under control without injuring her. If he really did injure her, the Xeclydes might very well have some sort of peculiar means up their sleeves to track him down. Even if he was able to make a getaway now, what about in the future then? Was he going to spend his life wandering all around the world as a wanted fugitive once Nora came to power?
