TL Note: There are entries for other characters, but I’ve only translated the king’s part so far. Please excuse me, but I really find translating this sort of chapters to be… tedious. I’ll add the others in as a note if necessary, although I doubt it ever will be as the author usually explains them again anyway. Also, this is supposedly still under volume 1 in the raws, but it didn’t really make sense with the previous character introduction, so I’ll be adding it under the second volume.

How do skills work?
For example, the Ruler of the Demon Children of Chaos gives an increased charm of (HIGH).
The (HIGH) here indicates the degree of effect of the skill because it is a passive skill, a skill that is always working.
Let’s look at another skill. The skill Martial Barrier has the chance of ignoring damage incurred (MEDIUM) while also passively increasing defense (HIGH) at the cost of increasing the strain on the body (MEDIUM).
In this case, the (MEDIUM) of the first effect affects the probability of the temporary invincibility as it is an active skill, a skill that activates once in a while and is not always active. For reference: (LOW) 10-30% (MEDIUM) 40-60% (HIGH)70-90%.
To sum it up, remarkable skills such as this one which can render an attack meaningless has a chance of failing. But, in the end, whether a skill is strong or weak on paper, their actual effect will depend on the one using them.
