the human kingdom goes through a coup and is replaced, putting in power a tyrant, making everyone that lives in the human territories downgrade in living conditions, corruption runs rampant.
In his past life, the Diaz Kingdom had been held together quite easily. It wasn't as if there wasn't a rebellion caused by the Archduke, but the hero was able to suppress it easily.
Diaz had been peaceful thanks to the hero, and they were able to prosper. This was all before the full-out war with the Demon King's army had started.
'However, it isn't like that anymore.'
In some ways, this was the biggest change that had occurred, because of Artpe. If Artpe hadn't run away with the hero, this rebellion would have never occurred.
If the agitated Maetel, who was next to Artpe, was still inside the castle, the humans that sought to satisfy their own selfish interests and desires wouldn't have been able to take control.
Still, it was as Silpennon had said. This occurred because of the internal politics of the kingdom. This wasn't Maetel's fault. Of course, Artpe wasn't at fault either. This was why they didn't need to feel any guilt.
"Will everyone become happy when we defeat the Demon King?"
In the old tales, the world became peaceful when the hero defeated the Demon King. Of course, these were only old tales. Artpe's view was grounded in reality.
"No. However, if the Demon world loses its leader, people will rush towards the Demon world to conquer it. For a brief time, there would be a need for manpower, and even civilians with no abilities would have a chance to get their hands on a good amount of loot. Of course, it also depends on the ability of humans to defend their newly found peace."
"You don't have to worry about the Demon race. We just have to kill them all."
"Everyone said that Demons are bad, but.... There are bad people amongst humans, so wouldn't there also be kind Demons in the Demon race?"
Artpe shut his mouth at the unexpected question. Her eyes did not falter. She stared at Artpe with sincere eyes. This was why he was hesitant to give her a rash answer.
In the human world, everyone grew up being educated that 'Humans are good and the Demons are bad.'
The power of indoctrination was scary. Even those that were learned and experienced in the world held absolute hostility towards the Demon race.
'However, she came to hate the humans first.'
