Emperor of Steel
     Chapter 304: Fall of the Veritas Magic Tower 1

    The Nemesis Imperial Palace.

    The nobles of the capital flocked to the throne room to solve the devastations which occurred a few days ago.

    "What the hell is this all of a sudden?"

    "That is what I am saying. How is it that suddenly a high ranking demons gets summoned in the capital?!"

    "Who were the wizards who did such a wicked thing?!"

    Most of the victims were frantic with the attack and were mostly the Emperor's nobles. That too the lords which were affected.

    It was because their property and other shops were all concentrated on the streets to the North of Nemesis.

    In addition, a lot of brothers and other children of their families worked in the Central Army and the Knights of Guards, and the incident had quite a few casualties.

    Naturally, they had to condemn the act.

    Of them, a nobleman after a careful thought opened his mouth.

    "Maybe the Veritas Magic tower is the culprit? Even though that isn't the case, wasn't there a rumor going around about them learning the dark magic?"

    For a moment, the entire throne room went silent.

    Honestly, the nobles were all aware of the fact that the Veritas Magic tower was indeed using dark magic, and about the Magical world being split in two because of it.

    So, after receiving the news that the Higher Demon first made its appearance in the Veritas Magic tower headquarters, they all decided to choose the Veritas as the culprit.

    However, the tower was very close to the Imperial family, and the nobles were scared to be called criminals for saying it out.

    It was because they knew very well about the close relationship the royal family had with the Veritas Magic tower due to the joined forces which suppressed the atrocities of Devil King Saymon 500 years ago.

    "But could that be possible, I mean the Veritas too had suffered a lot from this incident?"

    "That could be because they didn't perform it right or didn't control it properly."

    "Don't you think that someone deliberately infiltrated the Veritas Magic tower and summoned the demons?"

    "Infiltrate such a place to summon demons? Would that even be possible?"

    "I see nothing that can't be done."

    "I don't understand why you continue to take the side of the Veritas Magic tower. Did you take anything from them?"

    "What kind of accusation is that…! I just want the truth to be revealed!"

    "Truth? The most obvious truth and the fact are that the wicked demons have appeared in the Veritas Magic tower!"

    As opinions clashed, quarrels broke out, during this time a noble asked Count Voltas.

    "How is Your Majesty's state?"

    Emperor Rudolf wasn't in the throne room at the time.

    In the name of getting his injury treated, he was refusing to see the officials.

    "He feels like he should wait until the official investigation is over." Answered Voltas.

    "Hmm, that so?"

    The Emperor was in trouble too.

    There were many who were claiming the Veritas Magic tower as the culprit, and he had a close relationship with that tower, and since the damage caused by the accident was huge, he wasn't able to defend anyone.

    If he declared the Veritas Magic tower to be innocent, there was a chance for it to lead to a backlash from the nobles who suffered from the incident, and his public image was going to take a huge blow.

    Which was why the Emperor was contemplating on the excuse saying that it was going to be investigated.

    "Rather than that, what happened to the Higher demon?"

    Asked Marquis Lucas, who was in charge of the Ministry of law and justice.

    He was a bureaucratic noble of the capital and was one of the Emperor's noble.

    "The Knights of Guard were chasing him till the end, but they said that they missed the trail."
