The Tale of Hero Alice's Social Death (Pantsu Hero Alice) Chapter 357 - Lilith Still Doesn't Know The Situation's Severity

Sylvia might have said the search for the culprit wouldn't be a problem, but inspecting every thief in the Rhine Kingdom who had learned "Traceless" still wouldn't be easy. Even if Sylvia held significant influence in the Thieves Guild, her influence wasn't all-encompassing.

Many thieves might assist Sylvia when requested, but they weren't Sylvia's subordinates. They wouldn't go to her like obedient dogs simply because Sylvia asked to meet them. In most cases, Sylvia would still have to visit these thieves in person.

Handling the search in person wasn't necessarily a bad thing, either, since Sylvia could conduct her search as secretly as possible. After all, she couldn't simply tell her thief associates, "I suspect you might be the person who had stolen the Royal Magic Tower's copy of Demon King's Shadow sometime ago, so take this magic crystal and prove your innocence." She had to secretly get the suspected thieves to make physical contact with the magic crystal and observe the crystal's changes or lack thereof.

All in all, even though Sylvia had great influence in the thief community, it would still take her around one or two weeks before she could finish inspecting all of the thieves who had learned Traceless in the Rhine Kingdom. If she had to extend her search overseas, it might take her one or two months to complete Alice's request.

It was also fortunate that they had the condition of "thieves who had learned Traceless" to go by. Without this condition, it'd take a minimum of two years to check all the thieves operating in the five human kingdoms.

However, Alice didn't intend to sit still and do nothing during these one or two weeks. Although she had taken care of most of the things she needed to do for the moment, she still had one relatively important task: locate a piece of Living Wood to use as Andusia's replacement.

Living Wood was the treant race's treasure, and it was practically impossible for outsiders to get their hands on any. Because of this, Living Wood was regarded as one of the rarest materials in this world by alchemists, its rarity surpassing even the Seeds of Nature. The only reason Andusia had managed to get her hands on a block of Living Wood was because she had employed a time-tested tactic—stealing by force.

The birth of Living Wood was also a mystery, though it must be a very demanding process. Otherwise, the treants wouldn't have treated it so preciously. The treants had guarded their Living Wood so preciously that one could only rarely find it being mentioned in alchemy books.
