Technically, he seeks to become a "demon king/lord". He's not one yet.

The young Knight is actually behaving as I thought she might.
She seemed a decent human being, someone who would actually qualify as a Holy Knight for a benevolent deity.

Which supports the argument that the upper clergy is not, in fact, presenting their deity's wishes, but rather their own in regard to their secular policies.

She has still bought into the church's doctrine of the intrinsic evil of magic outside of their control.
Magic under their control would be presented as divine blessings, miracles of the deity, etc., so it's likely she isn't aware of that portion of their hypocrisy.

Next chapter should be interesting; he'd been restraining himself so as to not upset Nephie, that argument just went out the airlock.
As, she is already very upset... with those in conflict with them.

However, provided he knows the proper spell, he does have an option other than killing the young knight; make a slave of her.
I know, it's also a very overused trope, but that's partially because it really is a solution in these types of cases.

Are you seriously debating over if Zagan paid too much for her? is that really important?
Avatar
@Kaarme
I think there's also the fact that neither he nor Nephy actually have a strong concept of money or personal property, or at the very least their's isn't really normal, to consider. Zagan doesn't really believe in using regents as a mage, thinking his own personal power is more reliable. Also, until now, he survived entirely on dried meat and milk, which I don't remember if they ever explained how he got. He doesn't really earn or use money and all he had was left over from his predecessor. It would be natural for him to not think to limit the money he spends on her or to consider that a normal person might want/need things. Fortunately, Nephy is pretty abnormal too and wouldn't think/know to ask more of him in terms of material support. In a way, they're both kinda learning to function which leads to how it works narratively. Zagan now needs to start interacting with society to address Nephy's needs, not just buying her stuff but doing honest work to afford it. So the story will probably just be them build a home and find a place in the world in some weird way.

@mangafreak Don't worry, she doesn't start out as powerful as you seem to think.

@Vasqueztion
Yeah, it's not any deal breaker for me. He indeed did it because Nephie stole his heart immediately and nothing else mattered, personal financies included. Considering his personality, with how we have seen him deal with bandits and other unwanted people, also evident in the strange lines he delivered to Nephie especially in the beginning, it's also fitting he made a really quick and abrupt decision. Perhaps it's due to his origin as a petty thief, who probably had to judge what to steal and what to avoid in a fraction of a second, with nothing to lose in the long term, really.

@Kaarme
I agreed with you. He may have gotten her at a marginally lower price with a bidding war. What he did was a quick outburst because he fell in love with her.
It's also a power play. Drop that much money on a single bid and people think you're not fucking around and intend to go higher if necessary. Or, conversely, it is a line in the sand. One you don't want to cross. Especially one made by a "demon king".
You see it used a lot in mauhua martial arts stories with the auction house trope.

@Lanfear. No. Not Yandere. This is a healthy reaction to someone you care about being hurt. Protectiveness/jealousy≠ Yandere

@Vasqueztion
Sure, but what harm would it have done if somebody had tried to initially outbid him? They wouldn't have gone up to the million anyway. In my opinion he risked far more this way. Now there should be some so flabbergasted by the outrageous price that they start to imagine Zagan has found some truly miraculous use for an elf (of her kind) and thus needed her, no matter the price. Such as immortality, or whatever. Consequently they would try to find out what use it could possibly be, and then rob her away. Of course it's all true, but the use isn't exactly what any other mage would have expected.
Avatar
@Kaarme
He himself paid that much, to insure no one opposed him in a bidding war. He may have gotten her for less had a bidding war began. But he didn't want that chance, obviously.

Welp they done goofed

well the slave seller did say she had some ridic magical powers, so this wasnt unexpected, but still surprising.

Even though it's an overused trope, it still caught me by surprise. This manga is still a 7, but an unsteady one with tendency to 8.

Wonder if he still wants to remove that collar. I would be too terrified to try

I bet Zagan will stop her by saying something like "don't dirty your hands with this filthy. Leave it to me, please go make the meal, I'll send the guests off." or something like that? Well, that girl will definitely survive, I don't know about the others...

... I just thought how beautiful would it be if they were impaled while writing this comment, I don't know why, I just want them to suffer.

Church has some serious brainwashing going on if knights can just hurl lances at maids without a second thought.

Well, yeah but I'm kinda believing that he don't actually needs money and that if he wants to he can make a fortune easily by selling magic products or something like that.

@mahtan Yeah, but if he hadn't paid so unnecessarily much, he could have then used the saved money to buy nice things for her. Like decorate her room with something else than an old guillotine left there by the previous owner of the castle.

@huyhn that's not magic she's using. Or at least, magic in the sense the manga's universe knows it.

She was asked if she could use Elven magic and her reply was simply no. I am going to guess she isn't able to control the ability.

I thought the collar was suppose to prevent her from using magic? Nevertheless, I'm sure Zagan is going to make sure he doesn't make her angry after this!
