Character Sheets


KENO FASRIS INVERN
Vampire Princess of the Lost Country
Second Seat of the New Ainz Ooal Gown

Residence: Unclear (by Suzuki Satoru’s side)
Birthday: Blue 41st
Hobbies: Exploring the world, seeing new things with Suzuki Satoru

Racial Levels (11 total)
– True Vampire 7
– Lesser One 4

Job Levels (23 total)
– Vampire Princess 3
– Sorcerer 8
– Sage 5
– High Sage 7

Another possibility for the girl called Evileye. Incidentally, the data displayed on the right is for her
appearance in the Epilogue. Since she has a powerful protector like Suzuki Satoru around, she is
much lower level than Evileye, and the job classes she has trained aren’t very suitable for her. This
is the path she eventually chose after her adventures with Suzuki Satoru

Her interests have also changed, so she didn’t develop any special spells.

In turn, she has job levels that make up for Suzuki Satoru’s weaknesses (mainly knowledge-type
jobs), and so Suzuki Satoru values her highly. Of course, he also values her because she’s a guild
member.

Her Talent is “the ability to store any spell that she has seen or been targeted with — but only one —
and use it for her own.” She can even use it on super-tier spells or Wild Magic. However, when
casting the spells, its effects are calculated from her own stats, and she has to pay any costs that
need to be paid. For instance, if she were to cast Fallen Down, it would take the same amount of
time to cast, and it would work off her lower ability scores, so it would be less damaging than the
same spell as cast by Ainz. However, she will be counted as having met the ability requirements for
casting the spell.

Also, she cannot willingly dismiss the stored spell. She can only release it by using it once, which
can be taken, as a stretch, to be a weakness. As for whether a spell is stored, that depends on
whether she is willing to do so. However, just like the “ability that she could use proficiently” that was
mentioned in the epilogue, this is something that was impossible to begin with and is merely founded
on possibilities.

The reason why she did not become a Zombie but a Vampire instead is because she was
subconsciously using her Talent to replicate Cure Elim’s Wild Magic and absorbed the souls of the
people around her, becoming the undead being that Cure Elim had originally planned to be —
another Cure Elim. However, her sapience is only maintained through sustaining the spell (strictly
speaking, it’s not quite the same as his). Therefore, her Talent can no longer be used for other
purposes, and if this Talent — or perhaps the Wild Magic — were dispelled, she would become a
mindless Zombie.

While she holds the Second Seat in the New Ainz Ooal Gown, she is the weakest fighter and lowest-
levelled member. However, her knowledge accumulated over long periods has earned her the
respect of the various members, and she is hailed by many as a sage. In addition, she is very skilled
at helping the monstrous Suzuki Satoru. There is no doubt that she is the group’s No. 2.


CURE ELIM=LOS MALVAR
Former XX Dragon Lord
Current Elder Coffin Dragon Lord

Residence: Kaidinias Mountain Range
Birthday: Unknown
Hobbies: Strengthening Himself

Racial Levels (51 total)
– Dragonling 10
– Young 10
– Adult 10
– Old 10
– Elder 5
– Ancient 5
– True Vampire Dragon 1

Job Levels (44 total)
– Primitive 10
– Dragon Necromancer 7
– World Connector 9
– Overed Dragon 10
– Soul Blasphemer 7
– Sorcerer 1

Among the many Dragon Lords, there is a faction of those who have strengthened themselves and
gathered comrades in order to deal with Players, and those who have not. There were six Dragons
(at the time of its founding) who joined the former faction. Were they to fight level 100 players, the
outcome of their battle would be in doubt.

Cure Elim, as part of this alliance, developed “Soulbreaker”, which is one of the most powerful and
most wicked techniques in Wild Magic. There are only five kinds of Wild Magic (leaving aside
whether or not they actually exist) which can contend with it. Incidentally, the accuracy of calling it
“most wicked” remains to be seen, and so we shall not touch on that exception for the moment.

“Soulbreaker” was derived from the Deep Darkness Dragon Lord’s Wild Magic, albeit an inferior
version. Apart from a handful of people who have the protection of a world, anyone else will be
instantly slaughtered without any hope of resisting it. The death caused by this magic is the
destruction of the soul, and normal resurrection cannot revive its victims. However, it is also
extraordinarily draining and even the undead Cure Elim can only use this spell three times.

Usually, after dying — becoming undead, in other words — a Dragon Lord cannot use Wild Magic.
However, Cure Elim used its own Wild Magic to absorb a great deal of souls from around it, and
used them to compensate for the failings of the undead transformation, thus giving it the ability to
use Wild Magic. However, it is like casting spells from an MP bar that cannot be restored, and every
time he casts it, it utterly destroys a fixed number of souls. Therefore, once it consumes all its souls,
it will become a mindless Dragon Zombie. Therefore once it realized that this magic was useless, it
did not use it for the last time. However, it can use lower-level Wild Magic as normal.

While Dragon Lords cannot cast tiered spells, it is no longer a Dragon Lord but an undead being, so
it can cast necromantic tiered spells. Cure Elim used this loophole to strengthen itself.

It lacked fighting experience and looked down on tiered magic, and did not know the importance of
gathering information, and its lack of cooperation with its fellows led to its defeat. However, in order
to defeat Cure Elim, one must be able to deliver enough damage to kill millions of Zombies first, and
the only people who can do that are probably other Dragon Lords or holders of World-Class Items.
One could say that it would be almost impossible for an individual to defeat it. However, fighting it in
a group would lead to them being instantly annihilated by “Soulbreaker”.

From that point of view, Suzuki Satoru is pretty much Cure Elim’s nemesis.

As another aside, even the living Cure Elim would not be able to use “Soulbreaker”, but if it were
willing to destroy its own soul… perhaps it might be able to do it once?

Afterword

The author’s expression corner known as the Afterword has begun — since I didn’t write it there, I’ll
write it here! Since I’m as excited to be writing here as I am over there, please understand if I make
any minor mistakes!

Hm? This isn’t written in the same style as the afterwords to date? Hm. That might be so. After all, I
didn’t even write in the thanks at the end! Perhaps all the author’s thoughts have always been like
that!

—And so, this is the 14th book to me. Therefore, while I apologize to those people who are looking
forward to Volume 14, Maruyama’s heart is filled with the feeling that he’s finished Volume 14. The
next one will be Volume 15~

How do you feel after reading this spinoff?

Do you think Suzuki Satoru, as the MC of a LN, feels different from how Overlord has been until
now?

The battle scene in this book might have ended up becoming confusing. Originally, perhaps there
might have been a need to go “this is why he did so and so” but I deliberately omitted it. This work
really does place a big burden on its readers. Perhaps I might have failed as a LN author, but like
I’ve said many times, I personally think “it doesn’t matter if you don’t understand.”

Incidentally, while my editor keeps telling me “please make it easier to understand,” I haven’t heard
him say that recently. Like how I don’t want to clearly refer to Mare as a man and all that. Though
I’ve been using my own made up terms, so I think “everyone who knows gets it, right?” But then the
editor stopped me from doing that. Ah, how nostalgic. That’s a story from behind the scenes when I
was writing the first volume.

This was supposed to be a deluxe edition bonus, but I selfishly insisted that they publish it as a
book. Does it feel like it could stand on the shelves with the other volumes? If so, that would make
me very happy. Also, I originally wanted to add the stories of the first of the Thirteen Heroes at the
end, but I felt that it would mess with the tone of the epilogue, so I removed it. I have the feeling
Overlord will end without those stories ever being told!

Now, my thoughts about the various characters:

Satoru-san: He’s a man who routinely plays dirty to win. You should have seen how noble he was
when fighting Shalltear. That said, this Satoru-san is the one who comes off as a good guy overall.
Perhaps he would be this way if not for Nazarick. Does he seem like someone else? But he ought to
have a personally that’s just as twisted as his main line incarnation.

Keno-san: Did she achieve happiness in this story…? Very well, then … ahem!

As for what will happen after the epilogue, Maruyama has a vague idea for that in his mind. But
please, imagine it however you like, everyone.

…But how will things develop? Will they fight? Will they run? Or will they meet? Or perhaps an even
more different path? I would be very glad if you think “If I could write it” when you go to bed. I have
the feeling that if Satoru-san shared his knowledge with them, the New Ainz Ooal Gown could finish
off the Pleiades by themselves. They would be the world’s dream team. Well, as long as no other
powerful beings join the battle.

Cure Elim-kun: Anyone who saw the character sheet at the end of the book should understand that
he’s five levels lower than Satoru-san, so Satoru-san can definitely beat him — well, if you think that,
you’d be wrong. Even if they’re both level 100, Touch Me-san is way stronger than someone with
100 job levels. In contrast, as a member of the Dragon Race and with powerful job classes, Cure
Elim-kun is actually more powerful than his 95 levels imply. Of course, thanks to level-based damage
adjustment, his odds of victory are lower. Whether or not he really exists in the mainline novels is a
secret for now. But if he does exist, his 200 years of study and accumulation mean that he will have
fewer weaknesses than in this book.

Well, that’s how I feel about all that. Well, I look forward to seeing you in the next volume, which
comes out in the middle of this year in the Maruyama Calendar.

Bye bye.

Maybe it’s because I just got married, but I can’t stop my imagination after reading to the end… Keno-
chan is so cute~ Huh? Evileye? I have no idea what you’re talking about…

Overlord Light Novel Volume 13 Afterword, Credits and Character Sheets

 

Overlord Volume 13 Afterword, Credits and Character Sheets

Afterword
Thank you for your hard work, dear readers who have made it all the way
here. The hand you held the book with must be feeling heavy, no?
I’m sure you must all have felt the fear of dropping a book on your face
when reading while lying down.
Volume 13 is the first Overlord book in history with a pagecount well in
excess of 500. What did you think of the contents? I would be happy
if even a small portion of the readers felt it was interesting.
However, in truth, it might have been better to split it up into a second and
third part instead. Reading the whole thing from start to finish
really taxes the brains. Reading chapters 4, 5 and then the
intermission before going to sleep might be a better pace. How did
you read it, everyone? Ah, a major advantage of dividing it into two
books would be the opportunity to enjoy more of so bin-san’s lovely
illustrations!
Still, this won’t happen again, so there’s no point thinking about it.
While I kept saying I want to cut the page count, the length of this book
ended up being really rough. As page count increases, all the
associated work takes more time too, and the schedule keeps slipping.
The probability of wrong words also increases, so it seems like there
are pretty much no upsides to it.
Next time, I’d like to write a book that’s easier on both the author
and the audience.
Now then, while I did say the next volume is in 2019, I’m planning to
write something very long before that, so I don’t know how things
will actually turn out. Relaxing and waiting helps a lot. The third
season of the anime will also come out during that time, so I hope
you’ll all enjoy it.
But in truth, I’ve pretty much run out of things to put into the
afterword. In the past, when I was a reader and saw the author say he
didn’t know what to write, I would think “just write whatever you
want”. Now that I’m in the same situation, I can understand what
they had to deal with. What would you all write if you were in my
position? Honestly… the idea that I don’t need to write these
afterwords any more is starting to grow on me!
Now then, I’d like to thank everyone who helped me with this volume. I
look forward to working with you in future.

Paladin
– 2 lv

Evangelist
2 lv
Founder
4 lv
Birthday:
1st day of the Upper Wind Month
Interests:
Telling everyone about how wonderful the Sorcerer King is
Since her character has changed radically, she will be re-introduced. She
lost levels from dying, but at the same time she gained levels from
surviving the war. Her current character build is the result of
losing levels in Servant. She has many incompatible class levels, but
given her experiences, this was the only way she could have turned
out, no? Neia has not yet realised that she is using a special
ability to guide the thoughts of others (AKA brainwashing).
Currently, her ability only works on people with emotional trauma,
but Neia’s words can save them.
Kelart
Custodio
Face
of an angel, heart of a demon
Vocation:
Highest-ranked priestess in the Holy Kingdom and the head of the
priest corps.
Residence:
Prime estate in Hoburns (her family home)

Priest
– ?lv
High
Priest – ? lv
Hierophant
– ? lv
etc.
Birthday:
11th day of the Upper Water Month
Interests:
Observing people (both the good and bad implications)
In terms of pure divine spellcasting ability, she is the most powerful
in the region, surpassing even Blue Rose in that respect. However,
this is a national secret, so almost nobody knows about it. She
cherishes her family and her best friend (Calca), and she is more
aggressive towards people hostile to them than her sister, and she
even enacts ruthless, cruel revenge on them at times. She is almost
always seen with a smile on her face, but that is little more than a
facade. She is always looking for a chance to bring down the nobles
who are Calca’s enemies, and one can call her the most frightening
woman in the Holy Kingdom.
Caspond

Vocation:
Royalty of the Holy Kingdom
Residence:
Hoburns Royal Palace
Class

Cleric
– ?lv
Sage
– ? lv
High
Noble (normal) – ? lv
etc.
Birthday:
27th day of the Lower Fire Month
Interests:
Reading (he seems to like history in particular)
Caspon
is an excellent individual, and after realising he could not surpass
his even more outstanding sister, he equipped himself with the
knowledge to survive in noble society. He had no interest in
conflicts over the bloodline, so he ended up yielding his birthright
to his little sister. While he does not regret that decision, whether
or not he truly accepts his sister’s actions remains in question.
In truth, if he had become the Holy King, he would have been better
suited to the throne thanks to his willingness to perform underhanded
actions. He is is one of the rare few members of the royal family
that Kelart does not hate.
Gustav
Montagnes
Stomach

Deputy commander of the Holy Kingdom Liberation Army
Residence:
Prime estate in Hoburns
Class
levels:
Paladin
– ?lv
Holy
Knight – ? lv
Charisma
(normal) – ? lv
etc.
Birthday:
27th day of the Lower Wind Month
Interests:
He likes small animals
Of the two vice-captains of the paladin corps, his sword skills are
inferior, and as a result he is closer to the common man than the
other one (though he’s still strong enough that an ordinary person
could never defeat him). He gets stomach pains often, but he is very
grateful for the fact that magic can cure that easily, so he is
thinking of learning divine magic. He bought a house so that he could
let his pet Bunnias — which are rabbits that look like squirrels —
run free. His pets’ names are Milshe-chan and Amonna-chan, and they
are important beings that soothe his weary soul.

Birthday:
98th of Winter
Interests:
Listening to stories.
His race has very few males. Therefore, any males who are born are
immediately elevated to royalty. Due to their great importance, they
are not allowed outside their nests, and it is quite normal for them
to spend their lives in a state of house arrest. Thanks to being
praised constantly by the masses, he has developed great confidence
in his body, to the point of narcissism. Incidentally, his species
type is not an error. The Zern have a racial weakness wherein they
are affected by spells that are only effective against specific
races, hence their mis-classification as demihumans. They are
actually heteromorphs.
Bellriver
Big
Eater
As
a magic swordsman, he was the type who switched between swords and
spells. However, he was a jack of all trades but a master of none, so
during the guild’s glory days, he was often a second-choice pick as
a party member. That said, he was good in a fight, and his ability as
a gamer was quite high. In the real world, he learned some ominous
information about the megacorporations which ruled the world and was
killed in an accident to seal his lips. The information he possessed
made its way into the hands of a certain someone.
Credits
Volume
13 could not have been translated into English without the help of
the tremendously industrious workers on Baidu, who sacrificed their
time, sleep and health to turn 552 pages of Maruyama’s prose into
Chinese, which I could process much faster. Without further ado,
these are the people who made it possible.
