Chapter 14 - The Second Patient
Insert: Save the young life!!
Insert: The first surgery, on which everything rests, succeeds...!!
Bishop #1: That man... saved the life
of the heretic, after all those shots...!!
Bishop #2: In just about 1 hour after the firing...
Bishop #1: Is he really the one we've called a "ripper"...?
He looks like nothing but a real doctor to me
Bishop #1: and an incredibly skilled one at that...
Bishop #3: That's enough
Bishop #3: Have you forgotten? The Asklepios' status as a heretic
is supported most strongly by that man...
Bishop #3: The one who controls all the saint knights
and has the trust of his eminence and is said to most likely be the next pope:
Bishop #3: Bishop Viterius...!!
Bishop #3: Let sleeping dogs lie...
Pope: Hey... Where were you Viterius?
He seriously saved the guy!
Viterius: Treating bullet wounds is only basic surgery
If he had studied surgical medicine as a cover for his being a ripper
it's not surprising that he be able to do this much...
Pope: Haha... That's just like you
Well I wonder what's taking Nero so long
I wanna see the next patient quick!!
Nero: ...So you're sure about this?
The man's a heretic you know...
Lady: ...You said
in this state, this child would die within a month's time...
Lady: I don't care if he's a heretic...
If there's even the smallest chance that my child could be saved
I'd even sell my soul to the devil...!!!
Nero: ...This way
Knight: The 2nd patient,
Nero: This baby is your patient...
Take off the bandages yourself
And really severe ones at that...!!
Nero: He was injured one week ago when their house was burnt...
The mother had severe injuries as well, but we managed to save her
But this child, 1 year and 3 months old, had received burns on 50% of its entire body
Nero: As an emergency measure, I wrapped the burnt areas with cloth that had been soaked in bitter almond oil, elderberry oil, and egg yolk.
But from my experience...
Nero: With adults, patients with burns on over 40% of their skin,
and with babies, those with over 30%,
have never survived...
- Snake Column -
Extra info: The palm of our hand makes about 1% of our total body surface!
It's said that in the case of babies, one adult hand covers 5% of their body!!
Snake: That's surprisingly little!!
Nero: If nothing's done, this child would probably...
gradually weaken and die within a month as well
Can you save this patient...?!
Nero's taking charge of it all, that idiot
Isn't he forgetting about me...?
Pope: Oh!! Got here, eh, Colbro?
You sure popped out of nowhere as always
Knight #1: H- hey, that's...
Knight #2: It's the "God of Death"...!
What's he doing here...?
Text: "The saint knight of Death", Colbro...
Text: A swordsman of great talent who doesn't belong to any group of saint knights, but serves as the personal guard of his eminence
No one knows anything of his past
With his sword, it's said that even alone, he could do as much damage as a troop of soldiers with guns...!!
Text: He makes me uneasy...
Viterius: Your eminence!! The saint knights are here to protect you
Isn't it inappropriate to have someone other than us cardinals here...?
Pope: Haha... It's ok. I called him here cuz I've got a job for him later
It's something I can't trust those brainless saint knights with...
I'd say your emergency treatment is perfect...
Buzz: I... have seen
a similar case 3 years and 28 days ago
He can be healed
You mean, you've saved a patient in this state before--
Buzz: We'll need some "coverings"...
Buzz: Do you know that many things around us
whether it be furniture, clothes... or tools
Or the ground, humans, or animals,
and even air
Buzz: Contain "poison" that we can't see...?
Buzz: The human skin... has the function of preventing these poison from entering our bodies
When patients die from loss of skin due to injuries or burns,
it's because the "covering" is gone, allowing poison to enter the body directly...
Buzz: In that case, if the skin is gone,
all we have to do is cover the body with something else
But... No matter how clean the dressing may be, it's impossible to prevent the poison from entering completely
Buzz: The most effective material for coverings is...
Buzz: human skin...!!!
he's cutting off skin from the patient's body
and suturing it back elsewhere...?!
Text: He's using skin from parts that haven't been burnt... and don't stand out
to cover the damaged areas...
What a technique...!!!
Nero: A- Asklepios...
Nero: The patient has severe injuries on 50% of his body!
With that method, it's impossible for you to cover all the burns
In the end, you'd only make another big wound....!!
Buzz: Y- you're right
but if we leave the burns open, this child would die...
To save his life...
Buzz: The wounds have to be covered,
even if it means using other people's skin...!!!
Bishop #1: O- other people's skin?!!
Where's he proposing we get that?
Bishop #2: That's insane...!!
Lady: P- please
use mine then...!!
Nero: ...With those injuries, you won't survive through such surgery
I want you to use my skin--
Viterius: Chief doctor, Nero!!!
Viterius; You're a member of the Church;
We can't allow you to lend a hand to a heretic
The Asklepios should perform this surgery alone...
Viterius: Am I not right?
Chief doctor, Nero...!!!
Buzz: Chief doctor,
There's no need to worry
Buzz: You see, I can prepare...
the needed skin...
Buzz: The surgery is done...
Text: He cut off his own skin...
Text: What a man...!!!
Buzz: This is only an emergency treatment... Other people's skin would never stay
From here, we'd have to gradually transfer the new skin that grows back
It'll be a long process...
Buzz: But... don't worry
I'll make sure he heals...!!!
Nero: Thank you...
Nero: That's my son
Pope: Good work, Asklepios
Well I know this is sudden but
Pope: It's not like we could have lots of patients that are about to die around
So, the "3rd patient" would be...
Insert: Treachery - The sword pierces Buzz!!
(Next chapter: Buzz, mortally wounded!! As he fades away, his light shines into the deep darkness of the world!!)
