Saliphie is the ninety-ninth human human sacrifice that will serve as food for the king of beasts and demons, but she is not in the least afraid as she has never had a family or a home to lose, so she takes a positive attitude and doesn't care more about being food.

The king finds her interesting and lets her be by his side until his death. This leads her to discover the truth about the king of beasts and demons, and she ends up as the king's consort despite being human. This drives the other beasts and demons crazy for the news, but the king is powerful enough to silence everyone.
