Al is a slave born of a prostitute. His only family is his older sister and his only friend is a fellow slave and a thief. Constantly bullied and degraded, Al’s life is hard but as long as his sister is with him, he feels like he can withstand anything. Sadly, one day his older sister sold herself to a noble to obtain money to free him. Despairing, Al is ready to give up but with with his friend’s encouragement, he starts working, hoping to one day buy back his sister.
However, a few days later, a servant of the noble came to him and handed him a bag, claiming he was delivering the body back to its place because disposing of it was troublesome. At the very moment Al looked inside the bag, his mind broke.
“Why is it us, despite also being human, that are treated like trash by people? We all have the same ears and same eyes, and the same color of blood, but it doesn’t matter to anyone. Are we not human?”
He needed to know. He needed to prove them. Al has decided. From now on, Al and his sister would always be together.
As he gently rubbed his belly, Al made a vow.
– The next time, it will be their turn to be eaten.
