He is aghast as he believes his form and personality are cool aspects that should gain renown. Ainz suggests that he change is speech starting now. Pandora's Actor believes his master is joking until he sees how serious Ainz is. Ainz tells his creation that though he thinks his appearance and traits will win him comrades he must make the effort to be loved otherwise it would lead to something bad. Pandora's Actor grovels to Ainz to teach him to be loved, Ainz though silently thinks it's impossible.

Previously Ainz ordered his creation to remain in cat form and to act like a cat for the entire duration. Pandora's Actor is happy the plan is going well and silently watches the maids interact. Shizu decides to name him Kinkan, from his convoluted meows as a cat. She asks him if he is hungry and takes him to see Entoma Vasilissa Zeta, who offers him a plate of live cockroaches. The disguised treasurer is fine with eating the offered dish, however seeing his caretaker's disgusted face he decides to decline. Shizu gives him a can of cat food, which he swallows and chews whole. This makes the maid smile. Throughout the play, Pandora's Actor his shown to be taken care of by the maids. The automaton even places a One-Yen Sticker on his hat, which the maids around her comment that she only does this to things she likes.

Through a team effort, they manage to save the cat from certain death. Ainz appears and congratulates the Pleiades for their coordination. Yuri asks what the cat is, and Ainz informs them that the creature was found in the Great Forest of Tob. He asks Shizu how she liked taking care of Kinkan and asks she like to have him as a pet to which she declines stating that the Pleiades serve only the Supreme Being and can't be distracted by pets. Ainz understands and states that he will place the cat in Carne Village and thanks them for their loyalty.

Back in the Treasury, the two discuss the experience, however, it is cut short when Pandora's Actor tries to do one of his dramas to which Aniz excuses himself.
