 Hey everyone! In preparation for Nijicon we’ll debuting a new 18+ mini comic there! This story will focus long before Beleth was summoned by Janus and features the man whom Beleth stole his name to use for himself in Chapter 1. We’ll be only making 20 copies of this story and the final printed version will be on toned paper with white accents.

However, if we get enough reblogs or comments asking for this comic, we may offer it on our Patreon account! So if you want to see it and won’t be at the con, let us know you’re interested in more of Bel’s backstory!

cake-and-monsters said: How many people undergo the inheritance procedure? Is it based on family lines or is there a special reason for it?

*Hugs for more questions*

The inheritance ritual is tied to “blood bound” summoning. In essence, a high-ranking demon is summoned to serve a family bloodline until it dies out or the contract is nullified. Most summoners prefer short or limited contracts, as does the crown. Prior to the recent regulations, there are only a handful of blood-bound demons in Mercia. The royal family and the Duchess of Aetherlad (Gabriella) are two examples. If you read the previous question, I mentioned that summoning is somewhat classist in Mercia. If someone lacks the ability to summon, they can pay (gobs of money) to have a summoner negotiate a contract. Eliza’s father took it a step further and had the demon blood-bound (this is touched upon in Eliza’s memory from the beginning of Chapter 4).

inspectorclarke said: How common, exactly, are demons in the world? I get the general feeling that not many people are granted licenses by the government, but on the other hand, a lot of characters seem to have them. Is this story just centered around summoners, or are they more common than I think they are?

Fantastic question!

So, let’s start with the world. Demons, or more generally speaking, spirits are perceived differently by different cultures. Mercia is one of a few countries that have recently developed summoning abilities (I am hesitant to use the word ‘technologies’, but the approach is similar. Whereas on the continent, the Holy See is fundamentally opposed to the use of demons and trains many of its clergy as exorcists. There are cultures and countries in the East that worship certain spirits and abhor others. I could go on, but I hope you get the picture. Summoning as a whole is rather rare, although that is changing in Mercia.

For now, the story is focus on characters with demons, especially higher ranking ones. While demon summoning is regulated, its also classist in Mercia. Since we are focusing on Janus and Grimsby, much of the cast of characters they interact with have demons. However, we have slowly introduced characters without demons or low-ranking demons. They just don’t get acknowledged/a lot of air time. For example, Magnus lacks the ability to properly summon and refuses to contract with a demon. Ajax, as a exorcist, will have nothing to do with demons (that’s why Alea keeps her twins hidden from him). Even the barkeep, though shown for only a second, is a hidden ‘fizzer’ or non-magical citizen. Mercia is a country in flux and I do hope to highlight that more.

Thanks! Feel free to ask a follow-up.
