Otome Game no Heroine de Saikyou Survival [WN] - Chapter 123.1
Conspiracy of the Noble Faction (9)
Nero sensed something more dangerous than anything else in the area, and he let out a warning roar, sparks flying from the whip-like tentacles extending from his ears.
Nero wondered if she was as strong as the “peach-haired girl” he had chosen to watch over. But just like the “power” that girl had inside her, he sensed a strange “power” hidden in this morbid-looking girl as well.
Seeing Nero’s alarmed look, the girl – Carla – ruffled up her long black hair with her fingers and squinted her eyes with a sickly expression on her face.
Carla, with the vast amount of knowledge she had accumulated since childhood, knew that the beast in front of her was a Coeurl, a dangerous Rank 5 monster with a higher fighting ability than her, who was a Rank 4. However, the fighting power was only a guide, and Carla’s mouth was smiling as she knew that he was capable enough for her to test her magic, which she had been training only for the purpose of killing others.
The blue-shelled bear, which seemed to be territorial in this area, was attacked on the way, and although the difficulty level of defeating it was as high as Rank 4, it was a foolish prey that even Carla failed to recognize its strength. It was unclear why it was there, and therefore Carla was delighted at the appearance of the Coeurl, which had the intelligence to be wary of her, and was giving off a strong killing intent of its own.

“What is this woman?”
“She’s the daughter of the Earl of Lester! Watch out, she’s–“
The surviving knights noticed the identity of the intruder and readied their swords, but Carla saw them and lightly waved her arms in the air as if they were in the way.
A level 4 wind magic [Hurricane] was unleashed, and the knights caught in the vortex of the wind were cut down by countless small blades.
At that moment, Nero, who had been watching the situation, instantly jumped out and bared his fangs at Carla.
As a demon, Nero cannot use the [Appraisal] skill, but Appraisal was a skill to quantify the abilities of a target by seeing with the eyes, hearing with the ears, and feeling with one’s five senses. Even if it was a lower level demon, a higher level demon could read the target’s abilities to some extent similar to the Appraisal skill without relying on the skill.
Carla’s magical power value, which was sensed by this technique, was astounding even from the perspective of the phantom beast Nero, but her physical strength value was only that of a child of the human species, and even a snatch from Nero’s claws could easily inflict a fatal wound – or should have.
At that moment, an enormous amount of magical power erupted from Carla’s body, causing her body to float softly and avoid Nero’s claws like leaves dancing in the wind.
The reason why body enhancement increased not only attack power but also defensive ability such as durability was because the body was covered with magical power. It thereby made the body resistant not only to direct attacks, but also to offensive magic. The reason why advanced magicians use body enhancement was not only to avoid direct attacks, but also to increase their resistance to non-physical attacks by covering their bodies with strong magical power through the application of body enhancement.
However, there was a limit to the magical power of the human species. Even for elves of the fairy tribe, who had a long life span, their magical power did not reach that of even the lowest spirits, and even if they could use magic control, it required extraordinary courage to control their magical power while avoiding attacks in battle.
Carla gained a [Gift], and her body, accustomed to the enormous amount of magic power, was able to hold more than the limit of her magic power even during regular use. Having defined everything as her enemy and having been fighting alone, Carla was able to use the enormous amount of magical power throughout her body to control and even move without disturbing her mind even in battle.
Even so, it was extremely difficult for a Rank 4 magician to avoid the attacks of a Rank 5 demon, but Carla even used the aftermath of the wind magic she had used beforehand to avoid Nero’s attack.
This was strength of mind and wisdom that was not expressed in overall combat power.
Carla, still in midair, unleashed her magic on Nero, who passed directly below her.
For a Coeurl, who was resistant to slash and stab, it was offensive magic that he was supposed to be wary of. But there were countermeasures for that, too, as long as he could close the gap between them.
Nero’s tentacles sparked like electricity and blocked the magic, erasing the Fire Javelin that was released, while the impact caused Carla to frown.
Nero’s claws left a trail on the ground as he moved and as soon as Nero passed by her, he turned around and released his magic again while Carla, who was able to keep her distance from him, flew through the air.
