A transparent window appeared before my eyes. Faced with this I stood stunned, fear washing through me as I gazed at the status window.

“This is a status, right?”
My gaze drifted up to the heavens, countless retorts and words of criticism began to flow out as I muttered to myself.
“What, who wants to be a vampire? ….I can never use crazy straws again. Worst. Day. Ever.
Wo~w, these skills don’t seem like cheats at all…
What kind of title is lost? Eery premonition? Check. Cursed to walk in a circle forever? Remains to be seen.”•1
For now, I guess I’m feeling doubt. Or… anxiety?
Facing the corner I decide to start by trying to understand my current situation.
First up, I need a name…. eventually.
Ok next, let’s see, what’s the most interesting problem? •2
As though I was using a smartphone, when I touched my race it made a ‘pikon’ sound and a new list appeared above it.
Vampire clan (true ancestor)
Vampire’s true ancestor
Able to draw a line between normal vampires, in some cases an individual able to overcome the vampire’s weaknesses may appear.
The first thought that comes to mind is, what does that mean?
First of all, I’m a human. There are things I don’t know about my origin but my parents probably weren’t vampires. I mean even when I went out in the sun I didn’t turn to ashes.
As I was thinking about that it occured to me, this is a cheat isn’t it? It’s been established that vampires have tons of weaknesses and completely fail as monsters but… being able to overcome the weaknesses is at the same level as heart under blade, it’s strange.
Feeling a cold sweat I moved my finger towards the skills. As expected an explanation appeared.
Able to use Super recovery (HP/MP), Immortality, and transformation skills.

“What in the world should I do?”
I muttered without thinking as I stared at the skill group. Usually, a god would only give this kind of help to really amazing person that saves others right? Me, I have no reflexes, I’m smart but I have no great talent. It goes without saying that I’ve never saved another person either.
“Why don’t I check again for now.”
Realizing I couldn’t stop frantically thinking, I forced my own mind to shut down. Then, clear of distracting thoughts I turned my eyes back to the status once again.
Alright first is…. Super recovery I guess?
I pull up the explanation by tapping it with my finger again.
According to the explanation…whoa, on top of being active indefinitely it seems even a limb can be replaced inside of a minute. This skill is amazing, true ancestor is seriously awesome.
Let’s see other than that ‘transformation’.
…….I can change into a bat.
Of course, I’m a vampire so only makes since it would be a bat right? Right? As I was having those ridiculous thoughts I began reading the explanation for ‘Immortality’. Ones body is strong and the bodies flesh does not grow older with time. Great, now I want to vomit.
Next up map, this seems incredibly useful.
Even if you’re talking to someone in town it’s convenient to know whether they are friend or foe. With the detailed setting function I was able to go ahead and set it to show living things above ten centimeters within a ten kilometer radius. Obviously I don’t want to go around reacting to every bug in the area.
Skipping ahead a little we have Itembox. This seems very convenient as well. It looks like it creates a distortion in time and space. It seems that thrusting my hand inside allows me to take out any item just by concentrating on it.
I do a quick search just incase and am shocked when far from something normal like pants, a shirt, or even a coat; there ends up being something dangerous inside. It seems to be a small bladed weapon like a dagger, and something else I don’t understand, a large dictionary like book. Well, for now I won’t withdrawal anything, I can confirm its uses later.
Next, Shadow King. This, is a nice skill. It is highly useful when trying to escape from the enemy. I only understand about fifty percent but, it seems I’m truelly in a parallel world. It’s normal to think that when facing monsters I won’t be able to win. This let’s me choose to run instead.
Moving on, magic. Shadow magic, water magic, wind magic, bestowal magic. I have four types. I want to try using magic but, I’ll wait until later.
Next! The creation skill. Let’s see this is…… yep this is a production cheat.
Honestly, with this in my back pocket, I could make a huge profit just selling potions in town. When I think about who I’ll become from here on out, it’s crossed my mind at least once.
Last but not least, all attribute resistance.
The skill I’m most interested in is this. All attributes means, shouldn’t light be one of them?
Does this mean that even if I get hit by the sun I’ll be ok?
No in fact, it’s not like my body is weak so isn’t it fine? That’s got to be the case right? I’m sure it’s fine, unless it’s not. And in that case it looks like my destiny is to be a shut in.
Later I’ll cut off a piece of my nail and test it but, for now I have no idea where the exit is.
While having those thoughts, I move to the status’ final line. Something more shocking that even the skills is written there.
“One blessed by the creation God.”
There is no denying it’s there, faced with this I gulped loudly and tapped the words.
[TN:•1-So, this was the authors attempt at Japanese style comedy, tsukkomi. We don’t really talk or make jokes like that in English, it just comes of as bland emotionless statements so I tried to recreate what the author was trying to do to the best of my ability, I’m not a comedian T.T •2- he had a long rant about not being able to decide things and it being difficult and finally deciding to leave it alone and come back to it. I decided to just condense and skip cuz it was funnier to me. If anyone wants to know, …let me know? Sounds redundant…]
