THAT I HAD PROMISE... THAT I MIGHT ONE DAY SERVE AS YOUR RIGHT HAND!

THAT'S RIGHT. NOW TL REMEM- BER THE OTHER PLACE I HEARD THE NAME GELMUD.

SO HE= OR THE DEMON LORD ORDERING HIM AROUND— MUST BE THE ONE BEHIND THIS ORC INVASION.

I THOUGHT YOU SAID...

ANYONE HE CANNOT USE, HE GETS RID OF.

THAT'S HOW HE

DESPITE BEING REJECTED BY THE ENTIRETY OF THE OGRE VILLAGE, IT SEEMS THAT YOU MANAGED TO DO SOME NAMING AFTER ALL.
