The imperFectly summoned otherworlder children had unstable magicules, and were Pated to wait until their physical bodies broke down. Rimuru theorized that he could stabilize them with the power of higher elementals, the way Ehat Shizu held Frit within herselP. So he heads to the Dwelling of the Spirits and employs the help of Ramiris, one oF the Ten Great Demon Lords, to give the children the protection of the spirits and save their lives. WF

UPON THIS BODY, I SWEAR AN OATH TO CARRY OUT YOUR ORDERS.

BUT IT’S ALL UP TO YOU, BERETTA.

I'M SURE IT'LL BEA HANDFUL KEEPING HER SAFE...

YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE LONELY, YOU CAN JUST SAY so.

REPORT: WHEN GENERATING SIMULATED HIGHER AIR ELEMENTAL, “SPATIAL ATTRIBUTE" WAS IDENTIFIED AND ANALYZED.

SO LONG, RAMIRIS. THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP.

IF YOU REALLY CAN'T STAND TO BE WITHOUT MY ADORABLE VISAGE, YOU'RE ALWAYS FREE TO COME VISIT.

LISTEN, IF YOU EVER WANT TO LEAVE THE LABYRINTH, COME AND STOP BY TEMPEST.

oO

THROUGH COMBINATION, “SHADOW MOVEMENT" HAS EVOLVED INTO "SPATIAL MOVEMENT.”

INSTANTANEOUS TRAVEL BETWEEN KNOWN DESTINATIONS 15 POSSIBLE WITHOUT USING SHADOW.
