A bestowment, or, a curse.
— Cuttlefish That Loves Diving

 on Volume 4: Undying[Note 1]

Undying is the fourth volume of the Lord of the Mysteries series written by Cuttlefish That Loves Diving.

Title Meaning Edit

Undying, a bestowment or a curse, is the theme of Volume 4. It is manifested on many people in the story: Klein, Azik, Leonard, Anderson, etc. This theme reaches the peak when Klein saw the cocoons, the modern people inside, and the three broken ones. The horror, madness and darkness of this world is revealed once again. (paraphrased from the author's words at the end of Volume 4)

Synopsis Edit

After Klein returned to Backlund, he assumed the identity of Dwayne Dantès, and started seeking an opportunity to steal Antigonus Family’s Notebook which was in Saint Samuel Cathedral.

Alger traded characteristics of Ocean Songster with the location of a Primitive Island. He and Gehrman then explored the island, and discovered the betrayal behind Ancient Sun God's Death. Klein received the Card of Blasphemy, Tyrant. Then they heard a sigh, and the island disappeared in front of their eyes.

Later Klein sneaked into the Chanis Gate of Saint Samuel Cathedral and was sent to the Foggy Town by Sealed Artifact 0-17. He killed Mr. A, met (a part of) Zaratul and was tricked to release him, and finally escaped from this place under the watch of Evernight Goddess.

Leonard connected Gehrman Sparrow to Sherlock Moriarty and to Klein Moretti. He went back to dig Klein's grave, and realized that Klein was not dead. Dwayne then convinced him that Klein was resurrected and was a believer of The Fool.

The military asked Dwayne to sell weapons to the Southern Continent. Klein accepts the deal and sent Danitz to investigate. Danitz then met Anderrson there. After he learned that Amon has come to Backlund, Klein took the chance to leave for the Southern Continent. A Red Glove team that included Leonard and Daly was also sent there to hunt for members of the Numinous Episcopate.

Azik and Klein boarded The Black Tulip because Admiral Hell Ludwell seemed to possess an item related to Death. Azik asked Ludwell to give up his life and become Klein's marionette. Azik then felt something calling him inside the Berserk Sea, which turned out to be the Artificial Death, the Death's plan for resurrection. Evernight Goddess took the Uniqueness and separated Azik's soul from a bird shape accessory. Azik got rid of the influence from Death, but had to sleep for a long time to recover.

Ince Zangwill also came to the Southern Continent, to exorcise the Red Angel Evil Spirit. Under the influence/help of Adam, Klein, Leonard, and Daly finally get their revenge and killed Ince. Adam took Sealed Artifact 0-08, and Klein completed the ritual to promote to sequence 4.
