Chapter 7: And the award for Douchebag of the Year goes to...

Last time on Let's Play Disgaea, we robbed a pig man so skillfully that he decided to join us. Next up is the intro to Episode 4, wherein we learn that we really need to get better security around the damn castle.

Episode 4 Intro Drama

Scene: Overlord's Castle

(A note on the transcript: Vulcanus' *grunt*s are derisive, snorting laughs)

...So, Krichevskoy was already dead.
What I don't understand is why Flonne hasn't returned to Celestia.
!!! Is it possible that she's trying to use the demons to gain control of Celestia!?
That's it! That has to be it! There's no other explanation!!
*grunt* I won't allow it! My plan shall not be interfered with!
...Still, this demon den is so filthy...
It reeks of evil.
Hm? What's this book?
Don't demons know how to put things away when they're done with them?

This page!
This page!!
All these pages...!!!
Hah... hah...
Hah... hah...!
I mustn't! I mustn't fall for the demons' trap!
Those cunning fiends! But I, Archangel Vulcanus, will not fall prey to such a dirty trick.

*grunt* I found you.
There is only one person who makes a noise like that when she sleeps!
Flonne... I'm taking your pendant.
Rot in the depths of the Netherworld. *grunt*

...And what are you trying to say?
That one of us stole your pendant?
No... If it were you... would steal it impartially, right?
Hm... S, So you do get it.
Then, what do you want me to do?
I want you to... me find my pendant...
Huh? Do I look like a servant boy to you?
No... but...
What's wrong, Flonne? You look tired. (yes, there's a typo in the text if you're watching the video or playing the home game)
The Seraph gave that pendant to me before I came to the Netherworld...
An Angel Trainee like me cannot stay in the Netherworld very long without that pendant...

Prince, whatcha gonna do?
Like I should care.
She came to assassinate my old man in the first place.
That's our Prince. Even capable of turning his back on such a helpless little girl.
Of, Of course...
W,What? It's the truth, isn't it?
If you can find my pendant, I will give you something good.
"Something good", you say?
Hmph. If I wanted it, I'd just steal it from you.
You would use violence on weak little me?
Give it up already! I'm a demon!
It doesn't matter if who you are! Even if you were old, maimed or diseased!

...What's that supposed to mean?
Tell me!!
...Are you trying to provoke me?
Hmph... Fine. I've got some time to kill.
But! Let me make one thing clear. I'm not doing this for your sake!
And when I find the pendant, that "something good" is mine!
Thank you, Laharl.
You're an angel! You shouldn't be thanking demons.
I do what I want, when I want.
Remember that! Hmph!!

Okay, so what's today's take home lesson? Laharl and Vulcanus are clearly both campaigning for Douchebag of the Year. I think Vulcanus has the edge, though, what with actually being the one who is trying to kill Flonne as opposed to the one who doesn't want to help her if there's nothing in it for him. Also, Laharl doesn't have paranoid delusions.

Next time on Let's Play Disgaea: The Netherworld's Greatest Detective cracks the Case of the Missing Pendant! You won't want to miss it!
