This is the twenty-second chapter of the Overlord Manga.


Cocytus arrives in the Throne Room to wait for Ainz to appear. While waiting, he and the other guardians meet Victim for the first time.

When Ainz arrives he begins the meeting. He first asks how successful Demiurge is at locating the ones who mind-controlled Shalltear. Demiurge responds that there is still no sign of them. He is also asked to continue providing the skin used to make scrolls.

Ainz then tells Victim that, if necessary, they may have to kill him to utilize his abilities. Victim replies that so long as he is useful, anything is fine.

Ainz then tells Shalltear that she should not punish herself for being controlled and that it was his fault for not considering the possibility. Albedo disagrees however and says that despite the circumstances, Shalltear must be punished. Shalltear herself agrees. Ainz relents and agrees to punish her at a later date.

Ainz finally gets to talking about Cocytus' failure with the lizardmen. Ainz asks why he thinks they lost. He adds that he is not reprimanding him for the loss because those forces are easily replaceable. Ainz wants to know if Cocytus learned anything from this loss. Cocytus notes several things that could have been done to make victory more certain. Ainz is pleased with what Cocytus has learned. However, Cocytus still lost, so his punishment shall be to exterminate the lizardmen without any assistance. In response to this, Cocytus says there is something he wishes to requests from Ainz. Cocytus says that he wishes for Ainz to grant the lizardmen mercy and not kill them all.
