Musha and Zat became vassals, and first, they were trained to use magic.
Musha, who has a high level of magical affinity, was not able to use magic immediately like Charlotte.
Even among those with high aptitude, the speed of growth seemed to vary from person to person, and Musha seemed to be the type that grew slowly and steadily.
She definitely seemed to have talent, but there was no doubt that she was still developing. It would be a long time before she would be able to use it in battle.
Charlotte seems to like Musha a lot. Therefore, she is properly teaching her. Musha seems to be pushed around by Charlotte’s fast pace, but she seems to have a genuine admiration for Charlotte’s amazing magic.
Zat was excellent in martial arts and was strong enough to be considered fit for battle.
With his poor command skills, it would be difficult for him to command a large army. Thus, we decided to form a small elite squad of people with good skill and make him a member of it.
Incidentally, it was decided that the captain would be Braham, who had joined us during the last battle. Braham’s leadership potential was high, but now it was low. By leading a small group first, he would gain experience and improve his abilities.
Zat’s role is that of the second-in-command, and he is to assist Braham.
Braham has a wild personality, and Zat has a rather mature and calm personality, so the two seemed to balance each other.
Even after making Zat and Musha vassals, the recruitment of human resources continued, and ten new vassals were hired.
Musha was the only person who could use magic, but I was able to acquire a certain amount of personnel.
Some were already capable and ready to deploy, while others were talented but still need training.
The status of the officers was mainly commoners or fallen nobles, and some came from other states.
We had been looking for people for quite a long time, but we were only able to hire about ten people, so I was wondering if this was efficient.
It would be nice if there were a way to recruit people more widely.
It would be more efficient if we could communicate with the county mayors who governed each county, deepen our friendship with them, and be able to recruit people who lived in other territories.
So far, I have been busy with my territory and have not interacted with other mayors, so I think it is better to do it soon.
I think it would be a good idea to hold a party and invite the county mayors, or if the other county mayors hold a party and I receive an invitation, I will actively participate.
A few months after I started working as the Mayor of Canale.
“Ars-sama. A letter came from Clan-sama.” (Ritsu)
“Maybe it is about time for the battle, so it seems that there is an order to deploy the soldiers.” (Ritsu)
I received the letter from Ritsu and read the contents.
As expected, it was a letter from Clan-sama.
“Lead your army and join us”, however, it is written that the movement of the state of Sights is somewhat suspicious recently, so the letter says not to lead the entire army, but to leave some troops behind.
This suspicious movement in Sights was actually something that I knew about.
Although I had not given Ritsu any specific orders, he seemed to be gathering information using Shadow and other means. Therefore, I had received reports on the movements in Sights.
It seems that the vassal ousted the governor of Sights and became the new governor. It seems that the so-called “gekokujou” has happened. [T/N: 下克上 or gekokujou is when a retainer/younger opponent takes over command from a commander/older leader. Google-sensei has a better description.]
Since it was just after an uprising, I thought at first that they would not fight because the state was not organized yet, but there seems to be a possibility of uniting the state by creating enemies outside.
In fact, the easiest place to attack from Sights is not Messiaen, but the province of Shoots, north of Sights, which is likely to go this way, but Messiaen cannot be too careful.
It was definitely necessary to be properly prepared.
The fact that they did not have to send out their entire army meant that even if their numbers were a little low, they could get away with it without blame. That might have been a good thing.
“Ritsu, let us start preparing to go into battle.”
“Yes sir.” (Ritsu)
We followed Clan-sama’s orders and immediately began preparing to go out.
