This is the twelfth chapter of the Overlord Manga.
Albedo reports to Ainz Ooal Gown that all the Floor Guardians that have returned showed no signs of brainwashing, besides Shalltear Bloodfallen. Ainz orders her to summon Yuri Alpha and CZ2128 Delta to escort them to the Treasury.
At the Treasury, Ainz opens the armory to enter the Mausoleum. They encounter a being that Albedo recognizes as Tabula Smaragdina, however, Albedo sees through the disguise saying he is an imposer. On the Overseer Guardian's orders, the two maids prepare to attack until Ainz counters the order. He then orders the being, Pandora's Actor the Area Guardian of the Treasury to drop the facade.
Pandora's Actor is surprised by his master's appearance. Ainz reveals that the World Items are needed to handle a pressing situation outside Nazarick. Before allowing him an Albedo to enter the Mausoleum to acquire the World Items, the Area Guardian request they leave their Rings of Ainz Ooal Gown behind. This is to prevent the Avatara, the life-size golem replicas of the Forty-One Supreme Beings from attacking potential intruders. Albedo is stunned by the Mausoleum, which Ainz explains he designed this section as a tribute to his comrades.
He points to a vacant area where he intends to place a golem of himself should he perish. Albedo begs him not to say such things, in tears the Guardian declares Ainz to be the only Supreme Being that had not abandoned them, wishing him to rule over their creations for eternity. She asks him to promise her and the rest of Nazarick not to leave them. Ainz states he can't as soon he will battle Shalltear and considering her power as a Floor Guardian, even Ainz uncertain of the outcome. He insists that he will fight Shalltear despite Albedo's protests, as he feels it's a punishment for him for not foreseeing this, and unwilling to risk the lives of his comrades' children. In addition, he wishes not for any in Nazarick to fight one another for his mistake. He also reasons he is more suited to handling the vampire as he accumulated experience from various battles in YGGDRASIL, whereas the NPCs only gain knowledge bestowed upon them. Since Ainz is set on fighting Shalltear, Albedo only asks he promises her one thing: That he would return.
