    It had been some time since Arthur’s latest adventure, the one wherein he had been invited by the Silver Wolf guild’s management to visit their HQ located in the Upper Phoenix Mountains for the final step in his guild admission process. To that end, he had gone to the Phoenix Mountains, scaled their heights, and then waded his way through the snowy terrain to said HQ. It was during this adventure that he had met his unofficial mentor, a young woman called “Angel”, right in the middle of him being attacked by the local wildlife and then she had rescued him from them after which point, she led him personally through the entire procedure for completing his guild admission process and in doing so, he had officially joined the Silver Wolf guild thenceforth.

    Since then, he had gotten back to the daily grind of his everyday life part of which involved his ongoing psychic detective mage work, assisting his ultrawealthy and highly influential family and clan in the running of the multinational business conglomerate that they owned and ran due to his position as the sole heir to his family and clan as well as the next in line CEO of the associated multinational business conglomerate, as well as various other such tasks and obligations. The other part involved furthering his prowess as a mage slowly but surely and he had been making great strides in this regard as of late. In this manner, time had marched on for him until the present day, wherein once again, he was relaxing in his exquisitely designed personal manor located in the heart of Crocus, the capital city of Fiore, which happened to be his current main base of operations. Naturally, as was his routine and that of his diverse group of 6 personal monstergirl maids whenever he was at home alone and relaxing, they were keeping him company and had arranged themselves at various points around him. For instance, 2 were seated on the armrests of the large, rather comfy, and ornately designed couch while 4 were sitting on the ground at his feet, and the remaining 2 were resting their heads on his lap currently.

    Just then, his leisure time with his beloved maids was interrupted by the distinctive notification tone from his new iLac that he had set for any incoming job request notification and more recently, also for any other equally important notifications, that tone being the “Voices of War”, which was the exclusive and special DLC soundtrack given only to frequent players of one of his now most favorite iLac mobile game apps, namely “Oda Nobuna’s Ambition”.

    Curses…foiled yet again…what is it this time? Murderous miner…string of murders in Hargeon…how troublesome indeed…but I do need to keep myself fighting fit, as the saying goes, so this is a good opportunity to test out some more of my new spells and other such magic elements.

    As he mused thus silently, his face contorted into that of a person resigned to face a rather tough enemy or at least, one that seemed tough. This made his hollow coal-black eyes with the dark circles beneath them look a little more alive than they did normally. Upon noticing that, “Jeanne”, the head of his personal care maid squad and one of the two maids who was currently resting her head on his lap currently, spoke up with concern evident in her voice from her position on his lap

    Master Edogawa? Is something the matter, sir? You look worried…

    Arthur’s reverie was thus interrupted by said maid and so, he broke his silence and then turned his attention to her, answering her
    Indeed, I have just gotten a notice alerting me that there is a bloodthirsty miner on the loose in Hargeon and that the town guard is having trouble with his arrest…

    To that, “Jeanne” and the other maids looked at him seriously and replied, again in perfect chorus as always

    Very well, Master Edogawa. We shall do the needful here in your absence, so please go forth and stop this madman as you have been requested to do in that notice.

    With that, they fell silent and then Arthur nodded after which he gently disengaged himself from them and after instructing them to raise the manor’s security level to “Red”, he set off to his bedchambers, got ready with all his usual attire elements and gear equipped to his person, and then set off driving to Hargeon Town in his magitek smartmobile. It did not take him as long as it had before to reach Hargeon Town this time since he had upgraded his vehicle since the last time and soon, he was at the guardhouse in said town.

    Once at the guardhouse in Hargeon Town, Arthur began by talking to all the guards therein so that he could gather valuable intelligence on his target. After that, he excused himself and started to talk to the families of the victims of the attacks and any eyewitnesses who had happened to be there when the murders had happened in Hargeon. It took a while since these reports were so numerous, but eventually around noon, he finished compiling all the information he needed and began reviewing it while sitting on a bench outside the guardhouse

    Hmm…so all the attacks have happened around Hargeon Town’s lower dock area, eh? Let me see, what else is there…town guard lost one of their own in a sting operation against this fellow…this miner had apparently always seemed abnormal by societal standards…his father was a butcher…and so the son is using those same tools to carve up people instead…my, how grisly indeed…

    Arthur mused silently as he reviewed this data while being the perfect picture of serenity and confidence, the reason being of course, that he had no doubt whatsoever that he had the capacity to handle this rogue and bloodthirsty miner with the skills he had under his proverbial belt, a scene that surprised many of the guards since they had lost one of their own to this killer. A few tried to warn him to be careful and naturally, he assured them that he had everything under control with his usual well-practiced, perfectly natural, and cordial businessman’s smile on his thin lips. After he finished reviewing the data, he went off to the lower docks and upon reaching there, he was directed by the relieved locals to the hideout of this murderous miner.

    Now then, let us begin the hunt…I had better be careful…though they did say he does not have magic, that does not mean that he will not be dangerous…

    Musing thus silently, Arthur kept all his senses on full alert as he ventured inside the enemy’s lair carefully and slowly. For the first half of his journey inside, the scene was rather uneventful, but no sooner than he had reached halfway inside, the enemy in question came at him seemingly out of nowhere, but on closer inspection, Arthur realized that the dimly lit walls were concealing a series of hidden passageways instead of being one smooth surface all the way through. Naturally, due to this element of surprise, Arthur just had enough time to call forth his armor requip, at which point, his mundane three-piece suit glowed briefly as it was overwritten by its magitek twin. Due to this, when the miner attacked Arthur by slashing at him with the carving knife, his armor absorbed the blow for him instead.

    In response to the miner’s sudden attack, Arthur leapt backwards while using his psychokinetic abilities to guide his evasive maneuver and after pushing off the side wall, he landed on his feet out of physical reach of the miner, yet within both visual and earshot range of him.

    Good heavens, you are strong, my dear fellow. The reports do not do you justice in the slightest, considering that you were able to damage my magically enchanted suit with sheer brute force alone with nothing supernatural to reinforce your attack just now.

    He stated calmly to the miner, not really expecting the miner to respond, given the eyewitness accounts about him. True to form, said deranged miner merely growled like a large, angry, animal but Arthur was not led astray by this display as his keen eyes had noted the telltale glint of intellect behind the miner’s own despite the man’s attempt to deceive him. So, to cut off any sudden escape attempts, Arthur sealed the hidden passageway doors he had noticed in the walls by using his psychic technique which he had christened recently as “Terrakinetic Art: Fissure” which caused the rock walls to cave in with a nasty rumbling noise on the passageway doors and lock them in place firmly.

    Now that I have cut off his escape routes, he should not be able to surprise me anymore…though I wonder…were these passageways made of something like Oblivium, that strange material from Pergrande with anti-supernatural properties…because otherwise, my clairvoyance should have detected his approach long before we made contact…

    Musing thus silently, he focused his psychic energies into the palm of his hand for his counterattack while the miner went at the now sealed secret passageways in a valiant, but ultimately futile, attempt to open them again. Arthur thoroughly enjoyed the desperate and surprised look on the miner’s face as he made his seconds-short preparation to attack. His psychic technique, which he called “Pyrokinetic Art: Fireball”, drew some of the flames from the torches lighting the hallways of the miner’s den where Arthur was facing off against him into Arthur’s palm and intensified it into a baseball-sized fiery orb made of white-hot flames. Arthur then hurled this orb at the miner and made a successful hit on him, causing him to be engulfed by said white-hot and supernatural flames from head to toe, which made him cry out in genuine anguish even though his form was a hulking one. Consequently, the miner who was now set ablaze, reeled backward from the door, and backed away from Arthur to put some distance between them, but the flames kept on eating away at the miner despite his best efforts.

    As Arthur watched, the miner who was now being eaten alive by the flames that Arthur had set upon him started to turn tail and run, or that was what it seemed like anyway. However, much to Arthur’s surprise, after he had given chase for several meters, he found himself being hoisted off the ground by what seemed like a meat hook on a thick metal chain and the driving mechanism for this quick trap being set into the wall far below Arthur’s current position in midair. Naturally, his suit got damaged yet again and now had a large hole in it where the meat hook had dug into it just now along with the large tear down its front which had been caused by the miner’s carving knife.

    Again? This miner sure is resourceful and mind-bogglingly quick to set up traps…it is beginning to be apparent to me why the guards had lost one of their own to this monster…for he is not just a mindless brute…no, he is an intelligent, yet inhumanly strong enemy, despite being human…and again, my clairvoyance did not detect his setup…is this power of mine being jammed in here somehow? Or perhaps, am I losing my touch?

    Musing thus silently, he calmed his mind and then used his psychokinetic powers to free himself from the meat hook and landed safely while looking about for the miner, but strangely enough, the miner was nowhere to be seen in that area

    No, that cannot be the case…more than likely, maybe whatever mechanism is set up here by that miner…can only block extrasensory perception and other psychic visual powers…case in point, I was able to summon my magitek armor and attack this miner with my “Fireball” technique…now then, where is he, I wonder?

    Pondering the matter further in this way, Arthur used his “Terrakinetic Art: Fissure” technique to destroy the meat hook and the mechanism of the trap it had been set as part of, which was how he had gotten caught by it in the first place. After that, he made his way, slowly and carefully, deeper into the miner’s lair. Meanwhile, with the miner, his body was still being ravaged by the flames that Arthur had set upon him, causing him to roar in anguish

    You…filthy….detect…ive!!! I shall…ha…ve…your head!!!

    Naturally, due to the acoustics of the miner’s lair, Arthur heard that roar and smirked smugly as he knew that his work was being made easier for when he finally cornered the miner though he did remind himself.

    It took a while, but Arthur finally managed to corner the murderous miner in the deepest part of his lair after having broken through each of his defensive lines.

    You have certainly not facilitated this job of hunting you down, dear fellow. However, I do believe that we can call this a successful check at last, though I have not yet checkmated you completely.

    Upon hearing that, Arthur heard the miner roar in anger as though he recognized the meaning behind  words and charged at him. In response, Arthur backed away quickly and activated two of his visual spells in quick sequence, one which he called “Mystic Eye – Empowering Gaze”, and he directed this one at himself by shooting the reddish-orange beams from this spell at his arms. This resulted in his entire body being covered with this reddish-orange beam in the form of a skintight aura, thus energizing him. The other was one which he called “Mystic Eye – Arresting Gaze” which then caused his eyes to fire purplish-red colored energy beams at the miner (since this spell had been empowered by his previous one) and due to their accuracy, they hit said miner successfully because of his lack of magical defenses. Consequently, Arthur watched as the miner was blown away by the attack’s impact and froze in fear thereafter, albeit only briefly.

    Good, so the data was accurate after all, he truly does not have any anti-magic defense…

    After that, Arthur refocused his mind and prepared to take out the miner, but then the flames that he had set upon him were already burning him up. Thus, the miner met his end at Arthur’s hands after which, Arthur lifted his charred but still recognizable corpse with his psychokinetic powers and hauled him off to the guardhouse in Hargeon wherein he collected his fee for a job well done and went home to Crocus wherein his manor lay waiting for him.
