  1. Kachua
    The Royal Court’s top mage.
    Prince Mars’s master.
    It appears that she’s a conspirator and she’s smart.
    She’s a Lolita, but her actual age is……

    The author died before writing the actual number? Oh well. Lolita elf, huh… I like it.

      1. Hmm… I kinda agree that they’re suitable for that, but often elves are portrayed as really slow in aging, so when they’re 100+ years old they look like they’re 10, while some other races stay around that look forever, such as vampires and some demons… That depends on author though 😀 A fully grown elf, by their standards(several hundred years old?) should be a tall and slender beauty though, can’t replace that, hahaha.

    1. If you say her actual age… it would be death flag….
      So Author cant say it or there is no next chapter :v

      1. I guess so 😛 But this guy makes a living out of raising death flags all the time, so I think he developed some weird resistance to it, hahaha.
