The "Liberators" (解放者かいほうしゃ, Kaihōsha?) was an organization in Tortus which existed during the events of the spin-off "Arifureta Shokugyō de Sekai Saikyō Zero" series. It was an organization comprising of people who were willing to fight against the unfair world and the God who created it. It is said that the organization comprised around 3,000 members, who were scattered around Tortus in small hidden settlements.

Their goal was to slay the evil god, Ehit and put an end to his influences in Tortus. Although they failed and died (except Miledi Reisen), they created a trial to test someone who's worthy but even worse to obtain their ancient magic to carry on their goal to kill Ehit which ended into a success.

Structure[edit | edit source]

The Liberators were roughly split into three categories. The first of them was the fighters. The group consisted of all members of the Liberators with sufficient fighting strength. Their primary goal was to protect their hidden basses, rescue people who’d been branded as heretics, and recruit allies. They travelled all across the world, usually in small teams.

The second category was the villagers. It consisted of those who had no fighting ability or were too injured to fight. Most of them were civilians who’d been persecuted by the church, or children who were too young to fight.

The third category was the support team. They took care of the villagers, relayed information to the various bases the Liberators had, and helped with discovering and developing new bases. There were also a few spies in the support team who lived in large cities across the continent and kept an eye on world events. Some posed as merchants while others pretended to be adventurers. Some had more mundane covers, like doctor, butler, or farmer. They simply lived their day-to-day lives and gathered what information they could. As a result, they were in no danger, but the information they gathered was quite useful, such as rumours, major events within cities, the prices of goods, and the flow of people in those cities.

History[edit | edit source]

The organization had been said to have been created by Belta Lievre, who after her close encounter with death because of learning about the truth of the world and their God, went into hiding and started to gather comrades who had suffered and decided to fight the world itself. Though she eventually ends up losing her life, her mantle of leadership was taken up by Miledi Reisen, who also continued the work of gathering comrades to fight against the gods.

Despite their efforts, however, their fight against the gods resulted in the death of almost all of their members over the course of years. The defeated seven core most powerful members of the organization decided to seclude themselves into self-made Labyrinths around the world, where they could pass on their "special skills" to those people who in the future might want to renew their fight against the unfair world and would need the strength to do so.

In order to wait for that one chance to fight back and save the world; Miledi Reisen, the last surviving member of the Liberators, had decided to transfer her soul from her physical body to a Golem, and waited thousands of years until the heroes of Earth were summoned to Tortus.

Legacy[edit | edit source]

When the heroes of Earth were summoned to Tortus by Ehit, the Liberators were regarded as "Mavericks" (はん ぎゃくしゃ, Hangyakusha?). This was likely due to the extremely negative paraphernalia and preaching done by Ehit's priests and followers done to discredit the Liberators and make them out to become murderous destructive villain hell bent on destroying the world.

Their goal and desire to kill and liberate Tortus from Ehit's twisted amusement was then eventually passed down to Hajime Nagumo and despite him having no intention to saving their world, he non-the-less fulfilled their long cherished wish and killed Ehit and saved their world.

Eventually upon Hajime revealing the truth about Ehit and was believed by the leader's of Tortus, the Liberators story was slightly altered by Hajime and the leaders of Tortus in order to maintain public order and faith. This was done by making it seem that "Ehit" was an evil and malignant God that had taken up the name of the "True" God Ehit in order to bring about calamity and thus a separate deity from the God that people of Tortus worshiped. Effectively allowing the governments of Tortus to make it out that the "Seven Liberators of the True God Ehit" had realized the "False God" was not the true Ehit and set out to defeat him as "Ehit's True Followers".

Although knowing that the Original Seven Liberators would find this story deeply distasteful, Hajime non the less supported this plan in order to insure that future strife in Tortus's future would be avoided and believed that the members would also agree.
