Guy granted the wish of his powerless summoner and destroyed an enemy nation. As payment, he destroyed the summoner's country. And with this, though it was unnecessary, he noticed his awakening as a True Demon Lord. The two Arch Demons he summoned to destroy the first country evolved into Demon Nobles after destroying the latter one. Then, he permitted them to continue serving him.
Milim awakened as a True Demon Lord at the same time as Guy. Her pet dragon was killed by some country. In her anger, Milim destroyed the country and awakened as a True Demon Lord. Unconsciously, she fought with Guy. That battle continued for seven days and seven nights, transforming the bountiful lands in the west into a wasteland.
Eventually, the battle concluded. Milim regained her consciousness and the battle ended. The one who returned her sanity was Ramiris. In the process, the Ruler of Spirits Ramiris absorbed the evil magic of demons and the powerful aura of dragons and began to change. But, she was able to stop Milim's rampage. And the three settled this dispute.
These three were the first Demon Lords. They decided that each of the three would be different than the other two. One would pursue the Ultimate Skill. One would live as one, please. One would judge the world. Because their objectives were different, they could recognize each other.
