Being reborn once may sound impressive, but Rishe is already on her seventh time around! She has had all kinds of excitement in her previous lives, from peddling goods as a merchant to locking blades as a knight, so now she’s determined to kick back and enjoy.

It will take six-plus lifetimes of experience and skills for Rishe to break the time loop and make her extravagant dreams come true!
