To learn about the Hero and the Hero’s mission, he sets off on a journey from his hometown.
The destination—the continent’s biggest country, “Delcadar.” Specifically, the king.
Based on his mother’s words that all will be revealed should he go to Delcadar, the protagonist in due course heads for the king. The protagonist informs the king of Delcadar that he is the “hero,” and the king began to tell him what the “hero” means—
