Red, who was a member of the Hero’s party acting as a scout, strategist and negotiator, is the elder brother of a young girl that has the Divine Protection of the Hero and that battles against the Demon Lord. He has the Divine Protection of the Guide, which grants him a high initial level. As this Protection only grants him that and nothing else – no magic, martial arts prowess, or supernatural ability – he gradually becomes unable to keep up with the battle. As a consequence, one of his companions, a Sage, accuses him of not being a true companion, snatches all his equipment and kicks him out of the party leaving him just a copper sword.
Having his heart completely shattered, Red distances himself from the battle against the Demon Lord’s army despite knowing that the fate of the world rests on it, aiming to live an inconspicuous life alone at the frontier town of Zoltan as he earns money to open a herbalist shop by utilizing the knowledge he acquired throughout his journey.
Together with the Half-Elf Carpenter living downtown and the Princess who couldn’t become the Hero’s companion, he aims to live a slow life in the frontier of the world governed by a person’s inborn Divine Protection!
