“What is there to be curious?” Brendel said.
“Yes, strange, very strange. A noble who’s rumored to be from Aouine’s borders, but he easily recognizes me, identifies Hati readily, casts a Space Magic that borrows from Delasityle’s powers, carrying Bahamut’s Grasp and Halran Gaia…… You even have that girl’s sword, the Azure Sky—” The old wizard looked at Brendel with his dull-green colored eyes, his smile extending to them.
Brendel’s heart skipped a beat.
“Is it strange for a low-ranking noble to be capable of these feats? That’s nothing but prejudice.”
“But you have to admit that prejudice is a gained experience. Though, I must have crossed the line as it seems you wish to hold on to your secrets. If I apologize to you, surely you will not hold it against me, an old man, right?”
Brendel could not help but smile at his cheeky words. William’s friendly attitude was a breath of fresh air compared to the people from Kirrlutz, and in theory, he was actually much more qualified to look down on the lowborn because he was a leader of the Silver Bloodline.
If one were to compare the Galbu Wizards’ polite and humble attitudes to the people from Kirrlutz, the latter would definitely be treated as violent savages.
“Very well, my true interest here is this,” the old wizard looked at the imposing stone gate and shook his head, “the Lionheart’s place of rest isn’t behind this gate, everyone has guessed wrong.”

Still, he played along with his act and asked a question:
“Grandmaster William, what is the basic principle behind Magic?”
This question was simple to the old wizard, and he answered immediately: “Magic is the exchange of Mana and rules of the Laws.”
“I’ve heard that the symbol of the Silver Alliance is a silver balancing scale, would you please tell me why?”
William’s eyes glinted as he laughed: “An equal exchange— Alright, what do you want, you rascal?”
“I need a helping hand.”
“I see, you want me to aid you against that woman?” The old wizard looked at the entrance of the valley: “It’s a little troublesome, but I can consider about it.”
Brendel nodded. It was not surprising for William to make a correct conclusion quickly. The latter not only had wisdom, but his experience alone would allow him to arrive at the truth of many things.
“This is truly a difficult transaction to accept, but I think I can see it as worthwhile. Now, can you tell me what is behind this gate?” The old wizard asked with a laugh.
“Valhalla,” Brendel answered.
