A certain Otome RPG takes place in the Varschein Kingdom, where dark hair is stigmatized to an abnormal degree. Eumiella Dolkness is the daughter of a count, hated from birth due to her pitch-black locks—and she is also the hidden boss! In a twist of fate, at five years of age, Eumiella recalls memories of her past life in Japan. Uninterested in the romance aspect of the original game, she begins to dedicate herself to training her rare dark-type magic.
Despite this, Eumiella's goals are clear: avoid becoming the hidden boss and stay out of the limelight. Upon entering the magic academy, however, she shakes the foundation of the kingdom when her level 99 status comes to light. Whether a physical brawl or magic duel, her abilities are unmatched, and coupled with her black hair, she sticks out like a sore thumb. To make matters worse, the original heroine begins suspecting she is the demon lord! Can the deadpan noble girl achieve her wish of a peaceful life?

"Aren't I loathed to an extreme degree?"
"I'm Eumiella Dolkness, pleased to make your acquaintance..." ― Eumiella Dolkness
"Eumiella Dolkness, the eldest daughter of Count Dolkness .... Les, Level 99." In the hall of the Royal Academy, everyone on the spot loses words and stares at me at the words of the teacher who measured the level. Realizing that I had to give up my goal of being as unobtrusive as possible, I remembered how I got to level 99 to escape reality. It was at the age of five that I remembered my previous life and realized that I was reincarnated as a villainous lady in an otome game.
It was because I felt uncomfortable when I was young in the mirror in my room. The face reflected in the mirror was arranged like a doll, and the hair and eyes were much darker than those of the previous life, and it seemed as if he had inhaled all the light. Coupled with hair that has no habit, it may look like a Japanese doll if you wear a kimono. When I think about my appearance, I realize that I know kimono, Japanese dolls, and other words I have never heard.
From there, I remembered the memory of the previous life in the Imozuru ceremony. Being born in Japan in Heisei, being an indoor female college student, and being hit by a car rushing into the sidewalk and probably dying. The memory of more than 20 years runs through my mind in a blink of an eye, and my breathing becomes intense and my heart palpitations increase. Crouching involuntarily, I close my eyes, take a deep breath, and endure until I feel calm. After calming down to some extent, I think about myself now, but it turns out that I rarely remember it abnormally. I only know the name Eumiella Dolkness, being five years old, and being an aristocrat. She has little memory of her leaving her room where she is now, and no memory of her parents.
The maid seems to avoid me and takes care of me at a minimum, but there is little conversation. I didn't even know the name of the country where I lived. I have no memory or knowledge, and I look around my room for any information. The furnishings and clothes in the room are like medieval Europe. There are no modern appliances such as electrical appliances, and lighting is something that maids used to call magic tools. It shines while emitting something like shimmering scales, which looks like a lantern but seems to be something that could not exist in the previous life. Based on the above, I thought that this was a different world than the earth, so I decided to take action to collect information.
The first thing I did was to ask the maid a question. The maid seemed surprised because I suddenly became talkative because I hadn't talked to her so much, but she answered exactly what she heard. The name of this country is the Kingdom of Balshine, I live in the residence of the lord of the Count of Dolkness, and I was the eldest daughter of the Count. My parents live in the mansion of the royal capital and haven't returned to the territory before I was born. It seems that I was sent to the territory alone because I, who has black hair, is estranged by my parents. Black hair is said to be ominous in this country and is also a symbol of evil.
By the way, it was very difficult to hear this part from the maid. The battle between me, who seeks direct expression, and the maid, who makes heavy use of indirect expression, will be another opportunity. Reasonably, the servants of the mansion should be unfriendly. Black-haired and reticent I would look like a creepy kid, and my parents who hate me are employers to them. It is not unreasonable to treat the swollen object as if it were touching it. Knowing the current situation, I decided to remember the letters. Speaking of wanting the maid to be able to read letters, a tutor was immediately arranged and the class started. As I learned the letters, I immediately went into the library stack of the mansion and read all kinds of books, from picture books to specialized books on history and politics. As a result, I was convinced that this is the world of otome games played in the previous life. The title of the game is "Magic of Light and the Hero", commonly known as "Hikayu".
In the world of swords and magic, a heroine who can use the magic of light attributes enrolls in the royal school while being a commoner, becomes stronger in cooperation with the capture targets, and finally defeats the demon king. It's a story. The story progresses by alternately repeating the school part that raises the intimacy with the target and the RPG part that cooperates with the target to defeat the monsters. I was wondering if it happened from my name or country, but what happens in reality… In Hikayu, I, Eumiella Dolkness, is a villainous lady. She occasionally appears in the school part and is a supporting character who disturbs the heroine with a little harassment. As the story progresses, her turn diminishes, and she is forgotten by players by the time she embarks on a journey to fight the resurrected Demon King.
But Eumiella doesn't end there. After ending Hikayu as an extra element, the back boss appears when heading to the Demon Castle again. The player who saw the back boss would have rushed in, "You are the back boss!" Yes, the identity of the back boss is me, Eumiella Dolknesss. It's just a back boss, and of course it's stronger than the Demon King. Even if you challenge at a party where you can barely defeat the Demon King, it is probably the way most players will go to run away after being battered. Even if you take the tactic that was effective for the Demon King, which is to reduce the dark magic with dark resistance equipment and light magic, you will be beaten by physics and die. On the contrary, if you increase the countermeasures against physical attacks, you will die with high-powered dark magic.
Hikayu is rare for a otome game, and the RPG part is well-balanced. The enemy has weaknesses such as physics, magic, and attributes, and the key to capture is to successfully exploit them. However, as far as the back boss Eumiella is concerned, there is no strategy other than raising the level and pushing it. It is an unreasonable empowerment called a balance breaker by the player. According to the production staff, "After the game was completed, the villain daughter's turn was small, so I added it. For the time being, it's the last enemy, so I made it so strong that I couldn't beat it unless I could counter the level." By the way, the appropriate level for the Demon King Battle is about 70. The reason why he appeared as a back boss in the game is "I woke up to dark magic because of my hatred for the heroine who is getting along with the targets." There is no deep reason, well, it's an extra element of retrofitting, and the staff probably doesn't think so much.
In my previous life, I liked the level-up work, so I cleared it for the time being. Eumiella, who is on an equal footing with four level 99 brave parties, was something else that wasn't a villain lady. I knew that if I was the back boss of the balance breaker, and that I might be able to use the magic of darkness that only enemy characters could use in the game, the blood of the gamer made a noise. I have to raise the level. I read the magical textbook in the library and started practicing by feeling the magical power according to the procedure of the book. After 30 minutes, dark magic was available. I never thought it would be so easy. After all Eumiella has a talent for dark magic. It seems that it had nothing to do with her hatred for her heroine. After breakfast the next day, I decided to get out of the mansion. This is to practice magic in a large area. When I told the maid last night that I wanted to go out, I found out that my father had ordered me not to go out of the mansion at all. She wants to hide her black-haired daughter. After eating breakfast, I pretend to go to the library as usual and go out of the mansion. The wall surrounding the mansion site was easily overcome. Apparently I have an unusually high physical ability. At level 1, the name of the balance breaker is not Date. I hid my hair with the hat I had prepared and headed out of the city. There were no barriers around the city, so I could easily get out. Entering a wooded area near you, you will activate one after another large magic that you could not try in the library. I was absorbed in casting magic, but I realized that I was hungry. I had to go back to the mansion by lunch time, and when I looked up at the sky, I saw a beautiful sunset sky.
I started practicing magic at about 9 o'clock, so now it's 17:00 and I've been doing magic for almost 8 hours. As with the concentration that keeps using magic endlessly, I'm surprised that it doesn't run out of magic. It is true that the boss does not run out of magical power, but it is true that the magical power is inexhaustible. At level 1, this spec is a boss behind the scenes, and I'm scared. While returning to the mansion in a hurry, I think about the future. She runs, thinking that it is impossible to deceive her from leaving the mansion, jumps over the fence, enters the mansion, and returns to the library. The prepared lunch was left in the library as it was. I couldn't stand hunger, and I was absorbed in eating a cold meal. Immediately after eating the meal, the maid came into the room and said that the dinner was ready, and lowered the dishes. She looks like the maid is the same as usual, and she doesn't seem to know she's out. By the way, after I got out of the library, I was trying to get lunch.
Did you think you were here all the time, just because you happened to be out of the library when it was time to carry your lunch? Only this time I thanked the servants for avoiding contact with me as much as possible. From the next day, I had them prepare a lunch box because I didn't want anyone to enter the library, and the days of leaving the mansion continued. Defeat monsters in the mountains near the city of Dolkness and try to raise the level. He also prepared clothes that could get dirty with the money he sold the monster material. I think the merchants bought me a lot when selling the materials, but I can't help it because I'm a suspicious child from the side. From the age of seven, I started taking etiquette and history classes from my tutor three times a week. As I had less time to leave the mansion, I became aware of an efficient level up.
When I was 15 years old, I received a letter from my father. This is the first message from a parent in her 15-year life. The content was summarized as "Go to the Royal Academy. At the school, be friendly with the decree of the highest aristocrats. You don't have to be an old man because you can let him take over the house." What do you think of her daughter, no, I wonder what aristocrats are. But if she wants to marry a high-ranking aristocrat, she shouldn't leave her alone and get used to socializing. So I decided to drive to the royal capital. Officially, this is the first time I've left the mansion, so should I perform something that is rare around me?
Even so, the carriage is slow and sways, making it uncomfortable to ride. It's much faster to run. After arriving at the royal capital for two days, I decided to go directly to the dormitory of the school instead of stopping at the Dolkness family's mansion. Is that okay, parents, I don't even know your face. The Royal Academy is supposed to be attended by all aristocratic children for three years from the age of 15. The feature is that he focuses on fighting rather than studying. It is related to the origin of this country, which was established by the hero and the saint who defeated the Demon King. Therefore, it is recommended that aristocrats take the lead in the event of an emergency in this country. Well, it seems that it has become a mere corpse. It seems that I arrived at the school at the last minute, and the next day was the entrance ceremony.
I wear a new uniform and head to the venue, but I feel a lot of gaze. The manners should be so good that you can't be laughed at, and although you've grown up to have a slightly tighter face, it's not that bad. After a while, I found that my eyes were focused on my head, and I was convinced that my black hair was the cause. Some people were overtly disgusted, and I was worried about my future school life. At the school, I hid my strength so that it wouldn't stand out, and I was planning to spend time as much as possible regardless of the heroine or the attacker. According to the story, the heroines will defeat the Demon King. If that fails, I can't help it, so I'll kill the Demon King instantly.
The entrance ceremony progresses without a hitch, and finally the level measurement begins to also serve as a self-introduction for new students. I didn't hear it, maybe there was something like that, I was pitch black in front of me. Freshmen come forward one after another, put their hands on magic tools and measure the level, but there is only one person who is generally one digit level and exceeds level 10. I don't know my level. I haven't measured it, and it's hard to guess because it was strong from level 1. My turn came around mercilessly, so I went forward, but it got stuck in front of the magic tool. She is kindly told by her grandfather's principal that she is not embarrassed at level 1 when she enters school. She doesn't seem to be different.
