“Her name is Alicia. She’ll be your little sister from now on, Roel.”
In a lavishly decorated room stood a handsome yet frail-looking middle-aged man. He held onto the hand of a silver-haired girl as he introduced her to a well-dressed, black-haired boy standing before him.
The middle-aged man was known as Carter Ascart, a marquess of the Saint Mesit Theocracy. He served as the Chief Magician of the Holy Paladin Order, as well as the head of the Ascart House. He was also the father of Roel Ascart, the stunned 9-year-old boy standing before him at this very instant.
Roel Ascart was the sole son of this noble family. He had dignified facial features and a head of slightly long black hair. Standing at just under 1.5 meters tall, he was considered to be on the shorter end, especially among the nobles of this country. His skinny physique also revealed his lack of physical training. However, the noble education that he had undergone from a young age gave him a composed and quiet disposition, which gave most people a fairly good first impression of him.
This, however, was nothing but an empty facade.

Your looks are your only redeeming feature, and even they’re ruined when you act like such an arrogant little villain!
Do you have to behave in such a manner?
I know that Alicia is beautiful, but you’re the son of a marquess. Where in the Lord’s name have the manners your etiquette teacher taught you gone to?
Carter Ascart was clearly embarrassed by his son’s behaviour. He raised his hand with an intent to give his son a whopping, but barely after he raised his hand, the image of his deceased wife flashed across his mind. After a short moment of hesitation, he eventually put down his hand with a deep sigh.
“Cough cough. Alicia, it would appear that your brother Roel is exhausted. I shouldn’t have put him through so much magic training earlier.”
As Marquess Carter put down his pride to help clear up the situation for his darned son, he discreetly gestured to the maids by the side. The sharp-witted maids immediately stepped forth and brought Roel back to his room to rest.
It was then that Roel finally heard th
