Change of Persona

Ster is a human card with no profession.

However, with such an excellent appearance, it’s a pity not to play a butler.
After a brief reflection, Qiao Xingnan drew a checkmark on the script and made a decision.

He raised his eyes to look at Ster.
Under the dim light, the other party was well-groomed, his azure eyes were full of kindness, and he looked like a good-tempered elder who was quick to do things.

Qiao Xingnan nodded secretly and once again felt that it was a perfect decision to give the role of butler to Ster.

What he had to do now was to make up a suitable biography of the character and integrate the butler into his script, making sure that everyone in the manor would know that this new arrival was the emperor’s butler.

In his previous life, Qiao Xingnan had followed the crew to shoot abroad and had seen the current butler culture, which could be useful now.

He tapped the tip of his pen on the paper and listed a few plots, frowned, and crossed out a few that didn’t work.
A few seconds later, Qiao Xingnan looked at Ster: “Uncle Ster, do you know how to taste wine?” If he was good at wine tasting, they could use his wine-tasting skills to add to the plot when the tyrant comes.

Seeing that Uncle Ster had such a good temperament, Qiao Xingnan subconsciously felt that the other party should be good at this elegant activity.

The smile on Ster’s face didn’t change as he said with reserve, “Being older, I prefer to drink tea.” The subtext was that he did not know how to.

Qiao Xingnan crossed out this option: “Drinking tea is also good, which means that Uncle Ster, you are good at tea tasting?”

Seeing that Qiao Xingnan seemed to want to add this plot to himself, Ster said slowly: “As an elegant gentleman, I can taste the deliciousness of Tianming but have not tasted any other tea.”

Qiao Xingnan paused for a moment, which meant that the other party had only drunk one kind of tea, so that was not very good.

“Then, Uncle Ster, you should be good at dining etiquette, right?” Qiao Xingnan remembered that the other party’s talent was elegance.

Ster smiled, “Naturally, I mastered all the dining etiquette of the Chaos card pool.”

Chaos card pool’s…dining etiquette?

Qiao Xingnan drew a circle around this item.
The etiquette of the Chaos card pool and this continent might be different.
He needed to understand it more deeply before deciding.

He then asked a few questions in succession, thinking that simple things like tying up hair or bringing breakfast for the master and tidying up the room would be absolutely fine for Ster, but in the end, the other party’s answer left him a little confused.

“As a refined gentleman, I would never touch anyone’s hair.”

“As much as I would like to serve breakfast to my master, unfortunately, being old, it’s always easy to drop the plates.”

“I’m sorry, my master.
I really don’t want to touch anything in this room.
This place is so ugly that it makes me resist a little.”

Qiao Xingnan put down the pen in his hand and looked at the other party: “So, Uncle Ster, do you think you are up to the role of a butler?”

The smile on Ster’s face grew kinder and kinder, and his posture as he sat upright in his chair became calmer: “Of course, as you wish, my master.”

But your master now feels that you are not well qualified for this role.

Qiao Xingnan mulled it over for a moment and looked at Ster with a torn expression.
He originally thought that this elegant elder could pretend to be a butler, but who’s butler can’t do anything and can’t even deliver breakfast?

Ster smiled and looked back at Qiao Xingnan: “My master, what can I do?”

“You don’t have to do anything.”

Qiao Xingnan had a flash of inspiration.
He picked up a pen and added a few more lines after Ster’s persona.

“Uncle Ster, I’ve decided to change your persona.”

In fact, it was not quite true to say that it is a change of persona but just adding more content.

Qiao Xingnan thought to himself, “Since Ster can’t do the work of a butler, it doesn’t matter.
His persona is a butler who can’t do anything.

And why can such a useless person still become a butler?

Qiao Xingnan looked at Ster: “Uncle Ster, you have another identity, which is my enlightenment teacher.”

The butler Ster was originally the emperor’s etiquette teacher.
He was very responsible for the emperor, just like a second father, so after the emperor finished his studies, Ster did not leave but became the other side’s butler and came to this strange continent with the emperor.

Ster was an unqualified butler.

But in the eyes of the emperor, he was an excellent butler.

Although there are still a lot of bugs, Qiao Xingnan feels that, for the time being, it was settled.
The details can be fixed afterward.

Now, the key was still to talk to Uncle Ster about how he should respond to the manor people’s questioning tomorrow.

“Uncle Ster, just as in the scene just now, you are the emperor’s teacher and the emperor’s most loyal and trusted butler.
You don’t need to face them in a low voice.
You don’t even need to be nice to them, just keep your elegance and pride.”

Qiao Xingnan pointed to the script and told Ster softly.
He was a little worried that Uncle Ster’s persona would fall apart because of his good temper.

Ster listened and felt as if the role from his new master was tailor-made for him.
It was so simple that it was a little surprising.
He looked at his stunning master and nodded kindly, hiding the tiny fluctuations he felt inside.

Cards are not gods, and there are things they can’t do.

The previous owners didn’t understand this, but the new owner doesn’t seem to be quite the same.

Qiao Xingnan did not know what was going on inside Ster’s mind.
He just did what a scriptwriter and director should do.
Of course, at this time, he did not know how strong Ster, who had a mean title in the card world, was in battle.

The next day, the steward and Ilir got ready early and came outside Qiao Xingnan’s door.

Joel nodded slightly, signaling to the chief that the person was still inside.

Ilir stepped forward and knocked on the door.

No one responded, but just as he was about to knock again, the door suddenly opened.

As Joel described, the person who opened the door was a white-haired, elegant, gentlemanly-looking old man with an ebony cane.
His azure eyes swept over the person in front of him, and his gentle voice seemed to carry a hint of displeasure: “Please be quiet, your sound is disturbing our emperor.”

“If you are delivering breakfast, you should also observe etiquette.
This is our emperor’s time of rest.”

Ilir frowned: “We are not here to deliver breakfast.”

A trace of understanding crossed Ster’s eyes.
He took out a pocket watch and looked at the time on it: “If there is something you want to discuss with the emperor, you need to make an appointment in advance.
The emperor needs to have breakfast at seven o’clock, and you can come over at around eight o’clock.

“A good knight, I believe, has a sense of time, right?”

Ilir: ……

Now you have to make an appointment to see the one inside?

Knowing that the chief knight of the manor has a stupid mouth, the steward took the initiative to step forward and look at Ster with a serious expression, the lines on his face looked even deeper.

“Your Excellency, we don’t know your identity yet.
Outsiders are not allowed to enter or leave the manor at will.
Your master has brought two people one after another, which I’m afraid is not reasonable.
Please tell your master that we need to ask him about these matters.”

Ster’s eyes fell on the man in front of him wearing the same tuxedo as he was, and it looked like this was the manor’s steward.

His eyes crossed from his clothes to the other party’s looks, and Ster held up his glasses, and the smile on his face deepened: “I’m sorry, I misjudged your insight.
To cater to the rules here, our emperor has already been very aggrieved.
He has never had so few people serving around him.”

This person in front of them was greasy.
No matter what they said, they were not allowed to talk directly with Qiao Xingnan.

The steward and Ilir looked at each other.
Originally, the two of them came here to test this one, and now it seems that this person’s identity seems to be that one’s butler.
Whether it was true or not, the two of them couldn’t barge in and scare the snake, so they could only wait helplessly.

It was not until after seven o’clock, and the one in the room had breakfast, that they could talk to each other.

Qiao Xingnan quickly knew what had happened outside the door from Ster’s side.
He quietly gave Uncle Ster a thumbs up.
He spoke elegantly and choked people without being humble.
He really acted well!

It was not the first time Ster was praised by his new master.
His fingers clutching his cane moved slightly, and the kind expression on his face remained unchanged.

Seeing that the steward and Ilir were about to enter the room, Qiao Xingnan moved his fingertips and resumed his condescending appearance, with Zero standing by his side wearing a hood and Ster standing to his right.

The steward did not say much nonsense when he saw him but just expressed his intention not to bring any more people in.

“If you bring someone in with a magic scroll, please let us know.”

Qiao Xingnan’s golden eyes swept over the other party with a hint of suppressed displeasure in his coldness, “So when will your emperor come here, exactly?”

Why was this person so anxious to see their emperor of Arilance?

The steward’s face remained unchanged, “Our emperor will be here tomorrow afternoon.”

After explaining things, the steward and Ilir were ready to leave to deal with other matters.
However, before walking to the door, they heard the one who had just arrived here say to that person with distress, “Such a harsh environment is really too wrong for the emperor…”

Steward, Ilir: ……

Where exactly is it aggravating? Was your family’s manor a gold mine?

Qiao Xingnan, who found out when the emperor of Arilance would arrive tomorrow, was secretly relieved and prepared to check the script with Zero and Uncle Ster again this evening.

But it did not occur to him that the manor steward’s news had been wrong.

The same night, the emperor of Arilance came to the manor with a group of people.

Qiao Xingnan, who was dumbfounded to hear the news: ……
