Chapter 3

Chaldea was gathering Mysteries across the world, collecting science and technology as well, giving the facility a futuristic feel. Walking along the corridor could make one feel the high tech capabilities in it.

Within the facility, there were general areas and restricted areas everywhere. Depending on the person’s status and jurisdiction, they would have access to different areas. The general area was accessible by everyone.

Rozen and Mashu’s status within Chaldea was not high, they were merely Magus’ employed by Chaldea, in any other industry they’d fall into the category of normal staff or basic personnel.

Therefore, besides the general area, they both couldn’t access too many areas within Chaldea.

Despite this, after identifying their status, the automatic doors and elevators allowed Rozen and Mashu to smoothly arrive at the Central Control Room. This was Chaldea’s centre and the heart of Chaldea. It was one of the most important facilities within Chaldea.

The simulated combat Mashu mentioned before would take place over here. In other words, this was a region that both Rozen and Mashu could enter as long as they showed their identification.

“Fuwu!”

Just as Rozen and Mashu were about to enter the Central Control Room, Fou that was standing on Mashu’s shoulder leapt up and let out several cute *pa pa pa* footsteps as it jumped away like a rabbit, running off somewhere else and quickly vanishing from the corridor.

Seeing Fou do that, both Rozen and Mashu stopped for a bit but they were not surprised.

“It ran?” Rozen muttered.

Mashu opened her mouth and said, “Fou is just like usual, not wanting to appear in front of others.”

Just like Mashu said, Fou never appeared in front of the eyes of other people. Within Chaldea, everyone knew there was a strange living thing but the people who have seen Fou are few, even the current Director merely knows Fou exists but whether she’s seen it is unknown.

Taking this into consideration, Fou was basically free and could play around each corner of Chaldea. With such a mysterious creature, Rozen and Mashu were for some reason pleasing to it as it always ran towards both of them every day.

Sometimes, while Rozen was playing games it would appear in a corner of the room and sleep. Sometimes when Mashu was looking for Rozen, it would suddenly appear on her shoulder and go with her.

At the beginning, Rozen was also quite interested in Fou and wanted to make a contract with it, but it failed.

Gradually, he knew that Fou didn’t want to make a contract so Rozen gave up on the idea and treated it like a pet. If he was in the mood he’ll play with it, if not then he’ll ignore it, both he and Mashu were regarded as Fou’s master by the other staff at Chaldea.

“Let’s go senpai.”

“Understood.”

Rozen complied with Mashu’s beckoning and walked forward. The automatic doors open as he walked into the Central Control Room.

At that moment, there was a quite blue glow covering Rozen’s vision. Rozen immediately looked at the centre of the Central Control Room which attacted his attention. It was a floating globe.

“Global Environment Model 《CHALDEAS》”

Using the soul of the world as its foundation, it was a small accurate model of the Earth.

This model used in conjunction with the Near-Future Observation Lens 《SHEBA》allowed for observation of the planet’s future.

Chaldea’s duty of safeguarding human order was based on this.

By using both CHALDEAS and SHEBA, people could monitor the future of Earth and confirm the status of the planet in the next hundred years.

The glittering ray on CHALDEAS was the flame of civilisation. So long as it was burning, then humanity will survive and humanity’s future is guaranteed for the next hundred years. Humanity’s direction is also on the right track with no issues.

If the ray on CHALDEAS vanishes that means that human civilisation would be wiped out and humanity’s future will end sometime in the next one hundred years.

This was the main purpose of Chaldea’s existence. To monitor the planet’s future and guarantee the extension of humanity’s future, if there were any anomalies they must be confirmed and eliminated allowing humanity to return to normal and continue to survive.

This was Chaldea’s goal of existence.

Naturally, an event that could cause humanity itself to go extinct would not necessarily happen at the current time.

A piece of equipment rose up at this historic moment.

Spiritron Calculation Engine 《TRISMEGISTUS》

Allowing the spiritual body of a human to be moved into SHEBA and complete the quest of solving whatever would cause humanity’s extinction.

This technique was known as Rayshift.

Through this technique, the Master Candidates in the facility could be escorted to different time periods and eliminate the causes of the anomaly, therefore, protecting humanity.

Rozen was one of these suitable people in Chaldea which was the name given to individuals that could Rayshift.

But being able toRayshift also meant that this person had another qualification. This qualification was…

“Senpai…”

At this moment, Mashu pulled on Rozen’s sleeves and let out a worried sound waking up Rozen who was staring at CHALDEAS.

Rozen then understood why Mashu was so worried about him.

“Too slow!”

An angry sound could be heard and Rozen’s face showed a specific mood as well.

A mood of being sick of something.

As if meeting something he wanted to avoid, Rozen slowly turned his head and looked at where the sound came from. Shortly after he saw a person as if wanting to let out their anger on the floor, smashing their feet onto it enter Rozen’s view and walking towards him.
