Jircniv is still alive in Overlord as of this writing.

When he first learns of Ainz Ooal Gown, he wants to gather shady information about him in order to determine whether the Sorcerer King will pose a threat to his empire.

After learning of the Sorcerer King's terror, he realized that he could never, ever control Ainz Ooal Gown.

Jircniv frequently suffers from stomach aches and hair loss as a result of the mental and psychological stress of dealing with Ainz's presence and threat to the Baharuth Empire.

He is concerned not only about Ainz but also about his comrades who have switched sides.

Regardless, Ainz Ooal Gown decides to approach the Baharuth empire in a different manner. He took the empire and made it his vassal state under Jircniv's rule.


During this time, Jircniv recovers only to vow and kneel before the Supreme Ruler, Ainz Ooal Gown. Jircniv and the Baharuth Empire have remained under Ainz Ooal Gown's control to this day.

Even though he is terrified of Ainz, he suppresses his feelings for the sake of the Baharuth Empire's future. After all, he is still a deeply committed and devoted emperor who prioritizes his nation over himself.
