“Nora, what do you mean by protector?”
This term was, honestly, not too difficult to comprehend, but the Xeclydes had simply far too many titles, like Humanity’s Guardian of Light, Mediator of the Nobles, and so on. The word, ‘protector’, could have connotations different from what he was expecting.
Somehow, he couldn’t help but think of the mafia gangs and yakuza in his previous life, who collected protection fees from the businesses on their turf.
“It has been decades since the Xeclydes last invoked the protector policy, so it’s only natural that you are unaware of it.”
It was only then that Nora realized her audience didn’t understand what she was saying, so she quickly elaborated. She turned to face Roel, who was standing right in front of her, and a touch of tenderness colored her face.
