Moguzo ch2

Moguzo may look weak, but in reality he is strong enough to kill a monster; he just doesn't know how to use his strength properly. Moguzo is a pretty big guy, wearing silver armor.


Moguzo has a calm and very kind personality. He is shy most of the time, especially when being praised by others. However when the situation calls for it he can be really violent and good at killing his opponent.


Level 1

Moguzo was first seen when Haruhiro comes out of the Ortana Tower, and like everyone else, he has no idea how they got there. After Bri gave them a briefing of what their life would be in Ortana, Kuzuoka came in and recruited Moguzo as their replacement warrior, leaving Haruhiro and the others on their own.

He is later seen outside the northern gate in Altana, sitting in a grass by the side of the road. It is revealed that Kuzuoka scammed Moguzo to steal his money. Fortunately, he already joined the warrior's guild and at the same time Haruhiro's party lacked a warrior. Manato and the others agreed to take him in and pool their money for his needs. Together they set out to their first hunt to kill monsters. At first, Moguzo and the others struggled to kill even the weakest of monsters so it took them time to kill just their first goblin.

As a warrior, Moguzo was supposed to tank their enemies as the other tries to weaken and kill them. He learned various skills overtime and with his Rage Cleave skill they were able to kill more goblins in Damuro. As they gain more kills, the group got more confident when facing goblins. One day while hunting, they encountered a plate-armor goblin and a hobgoblin. Confident, they take them on with Moguzo engaging the hobgoblin while Manato with the plate-armor. Moguzo was overwhelmed and so as Manato and the others. When Moguzo sustained an injury, Manato always healed him immediately. The fight went on until Manato ordered a retreat.

As they run helplessly, no one had noticed that Manato had been struct by a throwing knife (an arrow in the anime). Moguzo just stood frozen when he saw Manato. They took Manato to the priest guild and there it was confirmed that he was officially dead. After they burned Manato's body and made a memorial, the three guys: Haruhiro, Ranta and Moguzo started drinking at the tavern. Haruhiro and Ranta argued about what to do next but Moguzo was there to shout at them to stop them from fighting. After Manato's was replaced by Merry, Moguzo like the others, were reluctant about Merry as she refuse to heal them. But after Moguzo was struct in the head by a goblin, Merry healed him after the fight and said sorry when she touched his injured head.

After the team discovered Merry's past, they got closer to her. When Mary was asked who she liked most of the three boys Mary chose Moguzo. He was touched by this and it is revealed later that he actually has feeling for her. Days went on again and they started preparing to avenge Manato's death. Moguzo learnt several skills which would come in handy. They also bought him an helm and an armor earlier.

Their plan was similar to the first one in regards to Moguzo. Moguzo would take on the Hobgoblin and the others would try to Incapacitate the plate-armor. Moguzo was having a hard time but he wasn't overwhelmed anymore and was able to take on the hobgoblin squarely. One by one the others were able to kill the Sentry goblins while the Hobgoblin and the plate-armor remained. Moguzo then uses his Trump card, War Cry, to finish of the Hobgoblin. After the plate-armor goblin was brought down by Haruhiro and the others Moguzo finally decapitated the plate-armor. And together they celebrated and returned to Manato's grave to give their offerings.

In that fight all of them gave their best against Zoran Zesshu and other 15+ orcs. They struggled until Renji was able to finish the orc warrior. Everyone was exhausted but relieved from the fight.
