"I have made my decision.
In order to be sure of the future of Shin Makoku, I have decided to choose who shall take over Shibuya Yuuri, the 27th Maou, when he relinquishes his position.
By the power vested in me, I proclaim Elie Velcross,
I hereby order for her to be raised up properly, to be ready when the time comes."
