S-Rank?!

A, P, D, S. Abnormal, Pandemonium, Destructive, Supreme... This is a Supreme rank!

Claude licked his lips and asked dryly, "Teacher, what exactly happened? That bookstore owner..."

"Is there anybody else beside you?" Joseph's stern voice sounded on the other end.

"Erm... uh, yes."

Claude glanced at the black cat that was already close to fainting from his tight grip. "Sorry Teacher, I was negligent!" replied Claude before he gave the black cat a quick chop to the nape, knocking it unconscious.

"If you know that you've been negligent, then why don't you shut up and carry out your job? Should I send you to the Northern Highlands to be a potato farmer?" growled Joseph.

"Please, no! I'll pass on your orders right away!" Claude shook his head. He knew that his teacher was pissed. But as his teacher's proud disciple, he had lots of experience dealing with this irascible old fogey.

His teacher had a sharp tongue but a tender heart. While he seemed fierce and had fists that could pulverize a person's skull at any moment, in reality, he was someone who would stop and feed strays on the side of the road and would even pretend to unintentionally pet their heads.

Joseph was terrifying when he got mad. But as long as his instructions were followed and things were done properly, everything would be fine. This was just a tactic Joseph employed to get things done quickly.

Claude informed the investigation staff members at 23rd Avenue to withdraw at once, and diverted them elsewhere.

Half were asked to be on standby while the other half were dispatched to monitor the hunters’ activity. Following that, he contacted personnel in charge of the intelligence branch's archives.

The most important job of Secret Rite Tower's intelligence branch was keeping tabs on the various powers and there were huge archives on each and every one of them.

Thelist announced by the Truth Union each year required the referencing of Secret Rite Tower's archives. Thus, each year, Secret Rite Tower would get an exorbitant amount of money from the Truth Union as compensation.

Generally speaking, in accordance with the regulations, establishing a new file required a thorough investigation by the higher levels and would take a longer time. But, Joseph had originally been one of the ten Great Radiant Knights.
