Nia has her own golem as well?

Though I do

Looking at the map of the capital outskirts being projected in the air,
Nia’s group leaks out surprised voices
Hmmm. As I feared.

that I’ve seen when
I was coming here with “Fly”. In case of the Surface World (the other side), it was Kami-sama who filled up the map for me. There is no way I can shamelessly ask for the same thing again. Can’t be helped.

which allows me to instantly travel to the places I have been to
at least once. It’s my first time in this capital, so I can

currently being displayed on this map」(Touya)
Are you saying that you can instantly teleport to the place if it’s on this map? How many people can you take with you?」(Est)
「It’s probably safe to say that I can take any number of people. I’ve also happened to transfer more than a hundred people at the same time」(Touya)
「Yuni! Go and immediately gather all members
currently in here into the exit! Prepare for battle!
Yuni reacts to the voice of
hief Est-san and starts running toward the passage leading from the entrance door
in hot haste.
「You really can do anything, don’t you?… Are you not a “Crown” of
「A golem referred to as
“Crown Series”. They are ancient machines, Legacy, who possess unique abilities
which are cut out above the rest. It’s one of the golems standing at the summit of this world」(Erka)
Engineer Erka gives me an explanation.
So there are even golems like that here, huh?
While I am admiring
this piece of info, Est-san follows up on that

this issue she’s talking about is
a private quarrel.
I would like to take a look at this “Crown” thing for a bit, but

Yuni forces her head through the door and shouts. Responding to her, Est-san faces the passage once again. There
two rows of “Red Cats”
members that are lined up, are
facing this way and
waiting for orders.
「First division will be on standby here! Second division will go along with us to save our fortress! We will be moving to the immediate location via Transfer Magic, so make sure you are ready to start the battle immediately!」(Est)
Having returned to the strategy room from the passage, Est-san motionlessly gaze
at the projected map and point
「Can you transfer us
in this location
of this northern mountain?」(Est)
「I can. Is the group over there and the ones here
going to be the ones going with us
Based on the discussion from before, it will be the guys from the second division along with Chief Nia, Subchief Est, Yuri, Yuni,
ngineer Erka, and
golems Fenrir and Akagane, right?
「No, we will have both Professor and Fenrir remain here. Honestly speaking, I would also like for Nia to remain here as well, but…」(Est)
「I. will. absolutely. go.」(Nia)
Says Nia while
breathing roughly and while
tightly grasping her fists.
「I don’t believe that
Rouge will be of any use though」(Est)
「So harsh?! I AM useful, ain’t I?! I am reasonable strong, even without Rouge!」(Nia)
You look delicate. Oh well, it should be fine to lend a helping hand once things get dangerous, but I don’t really want to be
as a comrade to thieves.
Becoming a wanted man in the Reverse World is kinda… Even though it

I give a rough reply to Est-san.
「Say, is it okay to abandon this fortress if it

As I give a scattered look at Est-san, she breathes out a long, deep sigh and gives an order to the golem Akagane standing next to her.

Or is he just reluctant to do so?
