Chapter 1522: The intruder and a timely intervention
Rin and Luvia tensed up when they saw the lady in a suit.
The lady in a suit had a dangerous aura. She felt like a savage fighting beast dressed sharply in a suit.
Luvia and Rin felt intimidated by her.
Strong, she's very strong.
They knew they were up for a tough fight.
The two raised their guards.
"Intrusion into someone else's property..."
"Rude, aren't you?"
The lady in a suit replied.
"That's too bad for you."
The suited lady spoke up.
"I am planning on intruding until the very end."
Rin and Luvia were angered by her brazen attitude.
"Why are you here?"
Luvia knew this lady.
"In a way, maybe it's our honor that you're here."
"Mage's Association First-Combat Specialist: Sealing Designation Enforcer, Bazett Fraga McRemitz."
The sealing designation means that she is a sealed entity within the Mage's Association's "containment". Usually, this means she is too powerful or has a rare bloodline that can't be handled like a normal human.
Her bloodline is also managed by the association so that they don't die out.
In other words, those bearing this designation lived like caged animals and are tantamount to death row convicts.
Not surprisingly, many of these mages are always looking for ways to escape their fates.
They're not afraid of death.
They want the freedom to further pursue their magical paths to the Root.
Getting sealed would mean being stopped from that pursuit.
Sealing Designation Enforcers are the instruments used to catch these high-priority magic targets. Going after naturally-empowered mages and monstrous beings meant that these enforcers had to be powerful and were equipped to bring these walking calamities back or quell them.
Bazett is one such enforcer.
Rin and Luvia might be stellar apprentices of the Clocktower but they're just novice students when compared to enforcers who were like trained cops.
Having gone through various battles, Bazett is the elite cop while Rin and Luvia are cops who hadn't even graduated police academy yet.
"Yeah, I agree with Rin this time."
"I might be talented but even I doubt my talents are something the mage association would put a sealing designation on. What a terrifying presence you brought to my halls today..."
"If only the sealing targets are always as easy as you two..."
Bazett mused out loud.
"Alas, you two aren't the targets this time."
Rin held Luvia back.
"You're not here to piss us off, right?"
"I don't have time for that."
"Tohsaka Rin, Luvia Edelfelt."
Bazett questioned them.
"Where are the Class cards?"
Rin also questioned her.
"You're here for the cards?"
"I don't sense magical distortions in this town. This means you got the cards back, right?"
"But, you didn't report this progress to the Association. Explain yourself."
"Oh, you want information from us?"
"Maybe you should adjust your attitude first."
"Not talking, I presume?"
Rin and Luvia turned silent.
She let loose the case she was carrying. It fell with a loud thud.
"I didn't think I would get what I want without drastic measures anyway..."
"You're going to use violence?"
Rin heard her internal alarms blaring.
"That's typical of an Enforcer..."
Bazett sprung forth like a cannonball.
"I don't have time to chit-chat!"
She hurled herself at Rin and Luvia.
The two also raised their gemstones.
A sharp sound cut across the hall.
Bazett retreated after analyzing the incoming attack.
The black silhouette cut the ground where Bazett was standing.
Two figures emerged near Rin and Luvia.
She frowned upon looking at the new intruders.
Rin and Luvia also gasped.
Two ladies came to their rescue in the nick of time.
One of them had lightning arcing around her brown hair while the other wielded a crystalline sword as her pink hair fluttered in the air.
Hinagiku and Mikoto intervened.x
