(A.N I have only read up to manga number three, so I'm sorry if I make any stupid mistakes.)Face Value
Raenef: a demon lord. Chris: a chief cleric chosen by the god Rased. You would never guess if you just looked at either of them. Why, indeed it could be said that most would confuse their positions and titles, for Raenef is unnaturally kind-hearted for a demon, let alone a demon lord – something that I must admit has caused me much embarrassment. Whereas Chris is nowhere near as faithful, humble and sincere as the clerics are often presumed to be – indeed, his ego alone is large enough for him to be mistaken for one of the demi-demons, and that is not something that I would say lightly, as you must know.
Their appearances too are nothing like people would think them to be. Raenef appears the picture of an innocent angel with his wide, innocent eyes and shining golden hair – nothing like his predecessor. Chris, on the other hand, appears dark enough to be a demon of the lower ranks, and has an aura of sheer arrogance to match.
That being said, I must say that the old mortal practice of taking things on face-value, of presuming to whom a being is allied just because of looks and attitude, is, to say the least, unreliable and completely incorrect. Mortals – even those who were raised to believe themselves to be mortal when in truth they are not – have always been a fascinating and yet most utterly confusing race for me to study, I must admit.
I do not really understand any of this, no matter how much I must appear to. All that I do know is that both Raenef and Chris have important parts to play in this story: all that is left to see now is how said story unfolds, and whether the mortal custom of taking everything on face-value will finally be shattered, once and for all.
