Every drowning person will struggle
— Cuttlefish That Loves Diving

 on Volume 5 Red Priest[Note 1]

Red Priest is the fifth volume of the Lord of the Mysteries series written by Cuttlefish That Loves Diving.

Title Meaning Edit

Red Priest means war. Although there isn't much direct description of war, it is the overlying theme of the whole volume. The war underlines the struggle of all the "drowning" characters, such as Klein and Trissy. When Trissy finally falls into the mausoleum, when Amon puts on his monocle in front of Klein, readers can truly feel that the drowning people finally sank into the water, no matter how they struggled.

When he advanced to the Scholar of Yore, the mysterious space above the gray fog; Sefirah Castle, appeared in the real world. Amon, Pallez and Mother Tree of Desire cast their eyes on it.
