Seika is asked to investigate the strange behaviour of Astelia Kingdom’s guardian dragon, which has protected Astelia since a past queen helped raise it. Astelia’s prince Cecilio, who is rather airheaded, is entranced by Efa and invites her to join his kingdom’s harem. Seika decides to let Efa choose on her own since joining a royal harem is a rare honour. Arriving in Astelia the dragon attacks their carriage but is driven away by Zecht, an arrogant mage mercenary Cecilio hired. Seika scolds Efa for freezing during the attack when she is capable of defending herself...
