    It had been a while since Nikola's latest adventure, and this had involved him going to Bellum to assist the forces of Iceberg as well as the members of the Ironheart Pact in their fight against the forces of Bellum and their Luminous Covenant allies. Since then, during the period of respite that followed, Nikola had once again gotten back to attending to his duties towards his family and the associated business group as well as the associated multinational business conglomerate. These included things like attending business meetings, meeting other high society families, and getting acquainted with their heir(s) and heiresses, overseeing as well as signing off on the developmental processes for new product lines, and so on. Additionally, he had also gotten back to his usual ongoing and ever-burgeoning mad science research efforts during this time as well and in these endeavors and in the handling of his daily life routine, he was assisted as always by his trusted and exclusively personal, now 7-unit strong, maid squad made up of monstergirls of all sorts, this squad also being his personal bodyguards in any combat situations too. So, in this manner, time marched on for him till present wherein he was relaxing in the company of said maid squad, with all of them were lounging in recreation room section of his mansion in Crocus, the capital of Fiore which was his home base of operations.

    In this situation, Nikola and his maids had decided to start expanding their recreational horizons aka enjoying themselves via participating together in a slew of miscellaneous activities such as playing pool, vintage wine tasting, reading classical novels of various genres and so on in addition to simply watching the newest movie to be released in said room. However, this rather peaceful setup of Nikola's and consequently his pleasure-filled mood was once again abruptly interrupted by the distinctive notification tone from his newly acquired “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”, as noted by his head personal maid, “Jeanne

    "Master Eisenstein, it would seem that our merrymaking is to be put on hold for a while...for it would seem you have your next job in your magus work..."

    To that, Nikola grimaced as he remarked, his voice clearly demonstrating his now disgruntled mindset

    "Indeed...how truly irksome this is..."

    However, regardless of how much he did not want to leave his beloved maid squad behind, he had no choice but to galvanize himself for leaving the pleasurable company being offered to him by his maids to attend to this. To that end, he addressed each of the members of his monstergirl maid squad in turn gently, as was his usual routine

    "Ladies…though it pains me to leave your rather pleasurable company for attending to a triviality such as this…I am afraid it must be done, for in the eternal pursuit of my research, I can never have too many funds…Also, in this particular case, this notification has informed me that my Silver Wolf guild’s top brass wants to see me about my C to B class-up exam which will let me ascend to the next higher level of security clearance henceforth letting me access data on more esoteric research material than I can now as well as affording me other miscellaneous advantages…so, it would not be prudent of me to ignore/reject this…"

    After that, Nikola gently disengaged himself from his maids and then left for his bedchambers, wherein upon arrival, he quickly set about getting ready in his usual work attire, aka that of a mad scientist magus and then headed off to the Phoenix Mountains wherein the Silver Wolf guild’s HQ was located so that he could meet with its top brass as per the instructions in the notification he got earlier. Thankfully, it did not take him too long to reach there due to the new upgrades he had made to his vintage limo type, fully customized,  magic mobile and once he did, he parked it in his usual spot within the guild’s territory. Once that was done, he headed inside and quickly made his way to the inner chambers of the guild’s HQ to get his meeting underway.

    After what seemed like forever and a half of lengthy discussion regarding the various responsibilities that were associated with the new magus class/rank he would be getting promoted to, Nikola had been let off by the guild’s top brass and had then been instructed to go and meet his exam overseer, namely someone by the name of “Mercury Arseneault”. So, he had nodded and had headed out of the guild HQ’s meeting chambers and started to make his way toward his overseer’s office. However, as his good fortune would have it, he encountered the very same individual whom he was tasked with finding and contacting for receiving more specific instructions regarding the trial he had to undergo for the C to B rank-up/class-up process, namely the one by the name of “Mercury Arseneault” whilst traversing the hallway leading away from the top brass’s meeting chamber. As he stopped and listened, said overseer then began instructing him immediately on what she wanted him to do for his exam trial.

    Well now, o ye Norns above…this time, you have not abandoned me, eh? You have my most sincere gratitude for that…

    Nikola mused silently in that overly melodramatic manner which came naturally to him about his current situation and his good fortune at not having had to exert any more effort to find his exam overseer since she had basically come to him instead, but he kept his countenance as well as body language in general strictly inscrutable to not unwittingly make trouble for himself by offending her in some way. Then, as he listened and watched onwards after having finished the initial meet and greet, he then noticed her handing over a flyer to him while talking on the matter further.

    So…the trial is to go assist those famous lycanthropes of the Lycan Woods, eh? This should be quite amusing and most enlightening, indeed…

    Nikola mused further as he listened attentively to what Mercury had to say about his exam and when she asked whether he was interested, he nodded and replied accordingly

    Indeed I am, Ms. Arseneault. It would be my pleasure to undertake this trial so that I may prove my worth to the guild and in doing so, I shall endeavor to help further its good name.

    With that little theatrical performance or charade of the perfectly well-bred gentleman out of the way, Nikola then bowed to her and excused himself after she had turned about and gone away to attend to her other duties. Then, he headed off to the guild lab, gathered all the necessary equipment, and then headed out of the guild HQ and drove off to the specified destination in question, namely the “Lycan Woods” which were situated in the “Cursed Lands” region of Fiore. It took him quite a while to arrive there due to the sheer amount of distance between the Phoenix Mountains area and the “Lycan Woods” area, but eventually he made it there, just in time for the full moon to rise to its zenith in the night sky.

    Upon arrival at the “Lycan Woods” locale that happened to be his destination for his exam trial, Nikola parked his vintage limo magic mobile in a spot that he was sure would be away from any prying eyes as well as overly curious local denizens. Then, he looked around to check for any of the alleged lycans he was supposed to be assisting with their issue in this case, but could not find any, which was initially to his surprise, but then he noticed that the entrance to said forest was bathed heavily in the full moon’s light due to its current position in the night sky

    Well, that explains the lack of a proper welcoming party, perhaps…oh well, it cannot be helped, I suppose…

    Nikola mused silently thus as he wasted no more time in heading into the “Lycan Woods” and while making his way further in, he made sure to keep a lookout for any of the local fauna and/or any of his client lycans which may take his arrival as an unwelcome intrusion into their territory for whatever reason. It was a good thing that he made sure to be on full alert status for no sooner than he had gone halfway towards the center of the “Lycan Woods”, he heard faint rustling noises in the shrubbery which lined the path he was treading upon at the time. However, he did not stop his advance inwards, but rather simply activated one of his Requip spells, his choice in this case being his “Datakinetic Art – Variable Combat System γ (Designation: Schneider Mk-I)” which manifested said spell armor as a protective shell over his entire body, all the while having his usual smug smirk playing on his face.

    How irksome…an obstacle already? However, is this one of the lycans or just the pedestrian local fauna, I wonder?

    Nikola mused silently as he slowed his pace down ever so imperceptibly and kept feigning ignorance of his incoming stalkers for the time being as a basic ploy to lure them into showing their hand. Said trick of his worked like a charm since not a moment later, a couple of lycans, one from each side of the shrub-lined path, leaped out of the shrubbery with a rather crazed expression in their lupine visages and their entire body displaying agitated aggression, no doubt an effect of each of them presumably having been unfortunate enough to have been bathed in the full moon’s light at some point before coming to attack him. Fortunately, his caniphobia did not act up upon seeing them since these were lycans and thus quite anthropomorphic enough despite having the obvious lupine features to their forms as well. So, Nikola was able to maintain his composure as he braced himself for the attack to land since there was not enough space along that path for him to dodge their attacks.

    You know, it is not very polite to attack the same party whom you lot have hired to assist you with your little issue…

    Nikola said to the two of them, but of course, they were in no mood to listen to his rebuke thanks to their currently enraged state. Instead, a split second later, each of the lycans aimed a vicious pair of slashes at him with the razor claws on their forelimbs which managed to severely dent but not destroy the armor he had on then. Naturally, since this was a case of clear-cut self-defense, Nikola retaliated by quickly generating an energy saber from his right arm’s gauntlet via the use of his current spell armor’s “Datakinetic Art – Swallow Cutter: Six Flashes” ability and at the same time, he activated his armor’s other ability as well, namely the “Datakinetic Art – Photonic Step: Heavenly Stride” ability to amplify his maneuverability for the purposes of getting around their guards. His two-step counterattack worked brilliantly as his initial attacks on the two out-of-control lycans struck true, drawing yelps from them.

    Said yelps that Nikola heard issuing from the two lycans were obviously due to the painful slash wounds that his energy saber had inflicted upon them a second ago. This caused his smirk to grow wider still as he backed off and landed several paces away from the two moonlight-maddened lycans which were currently engaging him in unprovoked combat.

    Nikola continued to maintain his defensive combat stance and ensured to keep his eyes on each of the two moonlight-maddened lycans to forestall any attempts by them to flank him and get around his guard, but as expected of them whilst in such an enraged state, the two charged at him again in a one-two style frontal assault

    Using the same tactic which failed before so badly, are we? Even if you both are currently in an altered psychosomatic state due to the influence of the full moon’s light, this is a tad too intellectual moronic of you, would you not say? What a pity, indeed…

    Nikola smirked as he called out to the two of them to see if his words would have any effect and since they did not, he decided to go ahead and defend himself this round just as he had during the previous one. However, this round, since his movement velocity was increased exponentially compared to his baseline due to his “Heavenly Stride” ability, he was able to dodge the razor claw slashes that the two lycans aimed at him this round and then countered by aiming a pair of slashes with his energy saber at the pair of lycans. Unlike with them, of course, they were not swift enough to avoid his attacks and thus were nearly knocked out by the pain of the fresh slash wounds that Nikola now inflicted on them, and they were only saved due to how remarkably thick and durable their fur was since this softened the impact from his energy saber and thus took away some of its cutting power.

    Alright, just one more attack and then this skirmish should be…ah, right…it would perhaps be prudent of me not to kill them…as if anything happens to them, their pack might not acknowledge that I was able to help them overcome their issues…and that would hinder my ability to complete this class-up exam trial…

    After this new exchange, Nikola was able to jump back and land upright on his feet while musing thus silently, but the two lycans were now collapsed on a heap, just barely clinging to consciousness due to the searing pair of the slash wounds on their bodies. So, they were in no shape to charge at him again as they had done the previous two times and thus, Nikola was left free to do with them as he pleased although he already decided to spare them, but only out of self-interest. With that in mind, he headed over to them as they lay on the ground whimpering from the pain of their wounds and then stood over them while looking down at them with a disparaging look on his countenance and with the smug smirk on his lips even wider now than it had been before

    Now then, have you two had enough excitement for one night or must we continue this farcical display of hostility?

    Nikola asked them thusly and then fell silent to see what they had to say for themselves for the crime of having attacked him in such an unprovoked manner.

    In response to his query, the two lycans tried to attempt one last desperate attack against him despite their severely weakened state, so Nikola dodged this weak attempt easily enough and afterwards, he decided to put them out of their misery, albeit only to the extent of knocking them both out cold with the flat side of his energy saber as opposed to employing the sharp edge of said saber against them

    Pathetic fools…why do you resist your inevitable fate? You should have laid down and simply admitted defeat…

    Nikola said as he gazed down at the now unconscious pair of young lycans both of whom had been previously engaging him in combat. However, he decided to let them off the hook by simply knocking them out cold since he knew full well that he did anything to jeopardize the amicable relationship that his guild, aka Silver Wolf, seemed to have with this lycan pack that had hired them for this current task, then that would, in turn, most certainly hinder his plans to advance his overall power and capability by rising up to the next higher magus class (i.e., from C to B class). After that was done, he dragged the two unconscious lycans, each of whom was much larger and much heavier than his seemingly much more lightly built and much smaller body, quite effortlessly along the path leading inward to the central clearing wherein his clients were undoubtedly waiting for him, all the while wearing his usual impassive and inscrutable expression on his face.

    Are these two lycans part of your pack, perchance? If so, you should really keep a better watch on your ilk, lest they rampage out of control and attack those who have come to help you lot. So…I must say, this was a truly deplorable welcoming committee…

    Nikola said in a semi-neutral, semi-chastising tone to the two largest and oldest looking lycans, one female and the other male, who were both standing just past the entrance to the clearing with anxious looks on their face, ones that were also present on the visages of every other member of their pack and then, he handed over care of the two unconscious lycans to the pack elders whom he was now engaging in conversation. As he had expected, the two elder lycans had the grace to look ashamed and contrite at hearing his rebuke since, in this case, his words rang true, and they had no counter argument to them.

    Please accept our sincere apologies for this, but we did not realize that two of our kind had strayed away despite having gotten strict instructions to not head outside this shaded clearing…these foolish young pups were perhaps thinking of proving their power by testing their mettle against the corrupting influence of the full moon’s light or something along those lines…but as is evident here, this hubris of theirs has gotten the better of them by pitting them against you, the very person who has graciously accepted our plea for help and has come all this way to assist us in our hour of need.

    Nikola was frankly surprised at how forthright the two elder lycans were being in response to seeing the damage done to Nikola’s armor by their two unconscious pack members and how eloquently they both were apologizing for their oversight in such a genuine manner no less, but naturally, he did not show his emotions in the slightest. Instead, he merely nodded and remarked

    Very well, let us now put that behind us and proceed with the business at hand, eh? Time IS money after all, and we have precious little of it as is…not to mention, this little impediment caused by your now unconscious ilk has wasted quite a lot of it. So, from the job request, I gather that you wish to gain better mastery over your feral impulses and your bestial transformations as well so that you can live free of the metaphorical shackles that the full moon’s light has placed upon you?

    Nikola wasted no more time in getting straight to the point and asked the two elder lycans thusly about their request so that he could confirm what exactly was the central objective in the current situation since that would be crucial to his successfully passing his class-up exam trial. To that, he saw the two elder lycans nod and respond and so too did the rest of the pack members, thus confirming the potential that his idea had for being successful in resolving this intriguing challenge

    Indeed, sir. You are correct in your understanding of the situation at hand and of what it is that we want you to do for us. We shall be as cooperative as you need us to be so that you can resolve this issue with all due haste.

    Nikola nodded and then replied accordingly with his usual smug smirk on his face now being back in all its arrogant glory

    Very well, then I, Nikola Eisenstein, shall assist you in your hour of need. Be sure to show your gratitude to the Silver Wolf guild for this afterwards. Now then, line up in a single file so that I may examine the lot of you, one at a time, of course.

    Nikola instructed and to that, all the lycans acquiesced and lined up in a single line and while they were organizing themselves thus, Nikola opened up a large Requip pocket dimension and from it, brought out all the various equipment that he had borrowed from his guild hall’s lab before heading off to undertake this job request, making sure to do so quickly so that he could complete this exam trial at the earliest possible time.

    To facilitate the retrieval of all the equipment he needed to complete this exam trial, Nikola dismissed the spell armor that was currently encasing his body and after that, he set up the large medical tent with all the equipment set up inside it at their prescribed locations. Once that was done, he beckoned each of the lycans to come inside and when they did, he instructed them to sit and submit themselves in a methodical fashion to biological sample collection in the form of blood drawing, fur collection, saliva collection, and so on. After that sample collection phase of the process was done, Nikola then brought his attention to the sample analysis part of the process wherein he immersed himself in typing away at his custom-designed and super-advanced, quantum processor complex-equipped lacrimatek personal computer he had brought with him for this analysis.

    Perhaps they have never seen such advanced technology before…primitive beings that the lot of them are…how quaintly amusing this sight is…

    Nikola mused silently with his usual smug smirk on his face as he chanced a glance at his lycan clients, all of whom were now standing by the side of his examination equipment setup and looking on with explicit curiosity being displayed on their faces as he typed away busily, with his nimble fingers flying hither and thither over the computer’s keyboard at blinding movement velocities. With how swiftly he was working and how equally swiftly his equipment was analyzing the samples he had collected from the lycans via procedures such as electron microscopy, chromatography, gel electrophoresis, and the like, all of which he set in motion just a few moments earlier, the analysis was also completed in short order.

    Hmm…as I suspected…their demi-human physiology seems to have been brought about as well as governed via the acquisition of a transmissible agent…and this agent seems to be some sort of magical virus…now then, what would be the best method to go about positively confirming this cause-effect link, I wonder? Oh, I know…what if I had them all bite…then if this virus does indeed have…it would certainly be able to…yes, yes…this is promising, indeed.

    Nikola muttered to himself as he immersed himself in his thoughtful reverie while contemplating the further development of the solution to the problem which the lycans had hired him and his guild, aka Silver Wolf, to solve for them. Naturally, as was his usual habit during such immersion, Nikola began to become unaware of the fact that his lycan audience was still in the tent with him and that, currently, he was speaking his thoughts about how to proceed with his development of the solution to the problem.

    Y-You want us all to do w-what to you, Mr. Eisenstein?

    The voice of the elder female lycan issuing forth to Nikola’s ears thusly broke his deep reverie which he had been in till now and so, he looked up from his thoughtful stupor and focused his attention on his audience while responding

    Hmm? Oh, I am going to have all of you bite me so that some of the virus in each of you which is the cause for your lycanthropy will transfer over to me and will be able to exert whatever effect they have in me as well. As should be evident, I mean to do this to confirm the cause-effect linkage between the virus’s effect and your lycan physiology and anatomy as well. Specifically, if the virus I have found in the genomic content of each of your bodies does indeed have this lycanthropogenic effect as I suspect, then it stands to reason that it should transform me into a lycan as well, albeit only temporarily since I shall be ridding myself of this virus once I have finished confirming this cause-effect linkage.

    Nikola explained rapidly, not bothering to water down his technical vocabulary in the slightest causing all the lycans to look extremely confused, which he only noticed once he had finished his explanation to them.

    Whatever is the matter? Was something about my explanation unclear to you lot?

    Nikola asked them thus, and then fell silent, awaiting their response which was much to his chagrin as he listened to it

    Y-Yes, uh…we are not quite as conversant with such technical language as this, Mr. Eisenstein…we are rather simple folk, you see…so, if you don’t mind, could you perhaps simplify this explanation for us so we can follow it better?

    Upon hearing this, Nikola sighed exasperatedly, but in the end, he acquiesced as he knew full well that he needed their cooperation to finish this exam trial of his successfully

    I want you all to bite me and turn me into a lycan the same as you lot. That’s all, and you need not worry about the rest as you can leave that all to me.

    Upon hearing this much simpler explanation, Nikola noticed many of the lycans looking at each other with uncertainty evident on their lupine faces, so he remarked in response

    You need not worry about causing any harm to me nor of disrupting your amicable relationship with me or my guild either. I have been given full authority to do whatever I see fit for the purposes of assisting you lot with the resolution of your request.

    Nikola spoke thus and then fell silent once more, waiting for his revelation to sink into the minds of his lycan clients and for them to be convinced about his plan.

    After a few minutes, as Nikola watched on, the lycans who had hired him to help them seemed to come to grips with the current situation and seemed to accept his suggestion. Then, each of them came forward in an orderly line and laid a bite wound on Nikola’s outstretched and now exposed neck which he had done to ensure that the presumed effect would take root in his body as quickly as possible. This process took a while due to how many lycans there were, but slowly and steadily, they and Nikola worked through each member of said pack from first member to the last one. Once that was done, Nikola instructed the lycans to step back to give him some workspace wherein he could let the imminent changes to his anatomy and physiology take hold and guide his body as per the mechanism governing them without hindrance.

    Now then, the next step is to observe these changes and then analyze my own genetic samples afterwards…

    Nikola mused as he arose and moved to the center of the space created by the lycans in the examination tent and took his place there, waiting for the changes to take hold. Fortunately, he did not have to wait too long for the volume of material that had been transferred to him from the collective pack was sufficient to expedite the transformation process. Consequently, Nikola saw his body rapidly transform from a fully humanoid appearance to that of a lycanthrope, thus confirming his hypothesis about the virus material he had found in the genomic content of each of the natural-born lycans from the pack he had examined earlier. Once the transformation was completed, Nikola along with the lycan pack exited the tent into the clearing in that part of the “Lycan Woods” and then Nikola attempted some basic maneuvering techniques with his new lycan body that he knew were innate to the lycans as well as other techniques such as focused howling blasts with his new lycan vocal mechanism and lungs and so on.

    Hmm, this is certainly promising, but it does not incontrovertibly establish that the virus material was the direct cause of this transformation…for there could be some other agent in the material injected into me by the bites of my lycan clients…in which case…

    Nikola mused silently for a few minutes about how to proceed in testing his hypothesis further and then hit upon the most efficient solution to the issue. Specifically, he focused his consciousness on the numerous swarms of organites swimming through his body and then directed them to destroy the virus material that was now inside him. It took a whole due to the complexity of the process, but eventually every iota of lycanthropogenic virus material was exterminated from his body, and consequently, Nikola saw his body turn back from lycan to fully humanoid again, thus confirming his ideas regarding said virus once and for all.

    Once that was done, Nikola led his lycan clients back inside the examination tent and then set about extracting and concentrating the lycanthropogenic virus material from the lycan samples he had collected earlier and thus created a potent extract of said virus. After that step was completed, he drew a quantity of blood from his body and mixed it with the concentrated lycanthropogenic viral extract which then allowed him to sequentially modify the genetic code of the virus to give more degrees of freedom to the lycans with regards to their transformative abilities as per the central objective of his exam trial, all the while muttering to himself

    Hmm…insert the guanine there…delete the adenine from here…hmm, oh right…substitute the cytosine besides that adenine…

    Thus, his work dragged on and on, but eventually he managed to finish the genetic engineering process, thanks in no small part to his use of the organite swarms from his own body which facilitated this manipulation process. After that was done, Nikola took the now fully edited viral extract and then inserted the sample tube with said material into the multiplicator device portion of the lab equipment he had brought with him to produce enough of the modified viral particles to cover every member of his lycan client group. It took a while due to the sheer volume of material required for this purpose, but by early the next morning, he managed to finish the process at which point, he called each of the lycans over in turn and injected them with the modified virus material which would presumably spread its genetic content into every cell and tissue of their bodies. Once this step was completed, then they all waited for the evening to come when the lycans’ feral behavior was expected to make an appearance at last.

    Then, Nikola set about having each of the lycans test their newly edited bodies so that they could check for any oversights and errors which he may have missed along the way. Naturally, he had fully faith in his mastery of his science and thus did not expect any such problems to crop up and true to form, the observations he made of the lycans corroborated his expectations by not showing any form of error whatsoever. In other words, thanks to his assistance, each member of the lycan pack he was tasked with helping in this exam trial of his were able to now control their transformative abilities and rein in their originally much more feral and uncontrollable impulses much more efficiently and effortlessly even when they were fully bathed in the corrupting light of the full moon.

    Thank you, Mr. Eisenstein. This issue had been plaguing us for quite a while till now and was the source of much grief and strife between us and the rest of the denizens of this part of the world…that is until your guild was gracious enough to accept our request and send you over to us to assist us in the permanent remedying of this problem. We are forever in your debt and shall never forget this gift you have given us.

    Nikola did not care about their expression of their gratitude whatsoever, but naturally, he was smart enough to know to not show it on his face. Instead, he put on his well-practiced, completely natural seeming businessman’s polite smile and remarked

    Indeed, so do make sure that you inform my guild of the successful resolution of your request and that I have completed all aspects of this exam trial of mine. Now then, I must bid you all adieu and so, fare thee well till next we meet, o ye lycans.

    With that, Nikola bade them goodbye and after collecting proof of job completion from the elder lycan leaders of the pack that he had been assisting in this case, Nikola headed back to the Phoenix Mountains and to the Silver Wolf guild hall. Therein, he quickly composed the field report about his activity with the lycan pack in this exam trial in exhaustive detail and after sending it off to his overseer, “Mercury Arseneault”, he took his leave of her and then headed back to Crocus and then to his estate therein where he looked forward, as always, to being able to enjoy the pleasurable company of his monstergirl maid squad once again after coming home from an arduous day of magus work.
