Ainz has one!   It included Nfirea because he could make potions. He also added Enri because she was his girl friend / wife. Nemu also was added because she praised Nazarick and said his friends were great.   There is also Tsuare because of that whole mess, but she wasn't officially added to the list or anything.   I'm sure Gondo is on the list as well since he is running the Runesmithes for Ainz. It is a unique technology, so it's worth something to Ainz.   Neia is sort of one... maybe?!?   Climb and Renner were on the protection list... not really because Ainz wanted them to be, but because of Demi's arrangement.

What about FRIEND JIRCNIV?


Maleficent_Ad_3958

How about the head of the guild of adventurers? He seems to like/respect him. I remember the carriage ride where he offered his honest opinion and Ainz liked that.


I-Pop-Bubbles

Honestly props to Adventurer's Guildmaster Ainzach for being honest with Ainz. It's gotta take some seriously steel kohones to speak your mind to Ainz' face.


I-Pop-Bubbles

Also, Jircniv is his good friend.


leomentos

Agreed w/ all of these I'd like to think that zesshi will also be added to the list as a friend for mare - and aura too of course. They finally found an elf that could almost match them physically for 'playtime' Not to mention ainzs one sided friendship w/ jircniv 😆 not just being ainzs rolemodel for how to behave as a ruler in public Lizzie bareare is on the list as well As a collector, ainz prolly has go gin (go-gin?) and crusch (and any albino offspring) on his list Edit: yes, I've read vol16, with mare >!pretty much putting zesshi under a coma to keep her alive!<


bryku

From how volume 16 ended I'm not so sure zesshi will be around much longer.


teeinava

given that mare told ainz that he tought she saw the battle between ainz and shalltear , i think ainz will observe her interogation from far. Potiential exists , depends on master maruyama.


bryku

Ainz was standing right in front of her since he was using control amnesia.   **Light Novel: Volume 16** > Her master was standing in front of the cage of a Half-Elf they had captured in the Elven Country. Behind him was the Area Guardian Neuronist and the figures of Aura and Mare. > ... > "Then what sort of information from the prisoner of war has earned Ainz-sama's displeasure?" > She was talking about using **Control Amnesia** to collect information. > ... > However, it appeared they had tried to use it because it was convenient to gather information even while the prisoner of war was unconscious.


leomentos

They took her to neuronists workroom and as bryku-sama pointed out, it was ainz who used [Control Amnesia] on her while she was still asleep/in a coma


teeinava

I knew she ended up with neuronist, had no idea ainz was shuffling around her head.


Underscore_flash

Vol 16 is your answer for Zesshi. Oh, she meets Mare.


wilius09

U forgot Gazef was also there ⚰️


TristanaRiggle

If you wanna say that, so was Zanac (in a way), since we saw what he thought of what happened to Zanac.


wilius09

He had like 5 mins of screen time Gazef was there since 1 ep


TristanaRiggle

Zanac has time on parts with (or greater than) Gondo and (if only going by anime) greater than Neia. Probably as much or more than Nemu and Renner too.


wilius09

Idk maybe cuz I'm anime only but he didn't impact show in any way till his meeting with Ainz (it was still cool ngl) but it's to little I should probably start reading LN...


bryku

It was only temporary, so I didn't include him.


R4Nd0mS

Neia is definitely there, mostly because it's the only thing he managed to get out of the whole HK ordeal. Demiurge and CZ seem to be fond of her (although for completely different reasons) so if she were to die not only would CZ's first friend outside of Nazarick be dead and possibly making her sad, he would feel he failed Demiurge by not getting anything better to aid his plan.


Business-Interview-4

I guess, enri, nfirea and nemu.


Death-exp69

Enri, Nemu, Nfirea, Neia, Tsuare (because she is Sebas’s Pet), and also Keno in the side story


teeinava

in the side story he added a bunch of adventurers and outcasts to his group by the end of it . Ainz aint that bad of a fella , he just got a country full of evil motherfuckers to make happy.


Death-exp69

More accurately Ainz cares truly and deeply cares for his friends and everyone else is just a insect. Now Also doesn’t like trampling insects but he won’t mind if he does. Though yes Ainz is not a bad person but he can’t be called a good person either.


teeinava

amen my friend. And thats very human of him. Most of us will sign the petition so more tax money should go toward the homeless people and public kitchens in our city. Most of us will not agree that our taxes should rise by 1 % because of that reason . And even less of us will go of their way to help the homeless personally. People are like that . Now given the power of nazarick , ainz could certainly veto some of the more maniacal bloodthirsty plans of his subordinates. But given the world he grew up in , and how little he values the lives of the new-worlders he didnt meet , cant blame him too much. Its deffinitly wrong , but i can see why he lacks empathy towards them.


Business-Interview-4

I dint think he cares about neia. Forgot about tsuare.


Cataklysim_

I don’t know he seems to keep her in his mind cause of her friendship with cz


Tomi97_origin

She is friend of Shizu and that's something he does care about.


Phantom_Browser

Neia is a fucking weirdo


zackadiax24

Neia is also best (human) girl.


Phantom_Browser

Probably. For me it would be Zanax and Fluder Paradyne


MPBar9

He does not really cares about them though. They are useful that is all.


Business-Interview-4

Did you forget that he has his own list of NWers who should be protected at all cost. And nemu was added in that list simply because she praised Nazarick


MPBar9

One thing is to protect them the other thing is to care about them. Remember he only really cares about denizens of Nazarick as they have been made by his friends plus he lacks empathy as it is sealed away by his undead nature. If he had to he would kill the entire world to protect them. And take for example Slane Theocracy yes they are jerks but Shalltear attacked them first and they were defending themselves with the only way they knew how and now they are gonna be destroyed.


Evening_Ad381

I think Gazef and Zannac would count if dead people also qualify.


JTurtle11

Actually yeah. -Jircniv is on that list, not because they’re good friends or anything, but because Ainz looks up to him as a ruler and wants to genuinely be close to improve himself. Ainz spies on Jircniv often to take notes on how to conduct himself as a ruler. -Nferea is actually more liked by Ainz than most people think. He’s mostly useful as a pawn to develop potions, but he also considered bringing him to Nazarick permanently. When Nferea discovers the Ainz=Momon thing, he asked to join Ainz, whatever that might entail. Ainz refused on the grounds that Nferea was human, and AOG strictly only allowed nonhuman players to join, so it’s possible that Ainz legit considered adding him to Nazarick to some degree. -Gazef. This one is obvious, but he liked Gazef because he was talented and wise. Ainz was genuinely upset that Gazef would rather die than join him in his final moments. -Maybe the second Prince? Ainz considered him an admirable guy after only one conversation. It was clear he was upset that the prince died, so I’ll leave it at that -The Swords of Darkness were pretty likable. He valued the fact that they reminded him of how his friends used to be, but then they also reminded him that his friends are gone forever, so he had mixed feelings about them. Once they were dead, he was annoyed because they were useful to him, too


[deleted]

Neia•Nemu•Enri•Niphiria•Lizzie•Jirciniv Ainz does consider both Neia and Jirciniv to be a friend the others are more like useful pawns.


Alternative_life1

Nope he doesn't consider neia as a friend Niea just a kid that follow him around,but bcuz cz like her he keep an eye on her It's like how sebas like tsuare,ainz just want them to be happy


Phantom_Browser

Yep, Neia is just an ignorant little bitch so I'm not surprised with Momonga's reaction


MaRokyGalaxy

Enfi, nemu, nferia, tsuare, neia


penislobsterpie

Even if the Pope’s eyes scare him, the Pope is a friend of CZ and therefore a friend of Nazarick. He would be very annoyed if the pope dies because CZ sad


spicofxp

The people that Ainz likes are The **elf** who taught him how to make potions is the closest thing to a companion and friend that Ainz has had in the new world, then **Nfirea**. **Nemu** if Ainz remembers her. **Jircnic** It's more of a joke by the author, but Ainz considers him his friend because he spies on him to learn how a competent ruler acts... Ainz liked **Gondo** a little. **Pluton Ainzach** There are others on a protection list, but not because Ainz likes them. Ainz thought that CZ was friendly with **Neia**, now he thinks he was wrong. Ainz doesn't like Neia. **Enri** is not liked by Ainz, but she is Enri's wife, similar situation applies to **Lizzie Bararee.** **Tsuare** is not Ainz's liking, she is alive because of Sebas... **Renner** is alive because of Demiurge, Ainz does not like her, she is not even liked by Albedo as many think.


TristanaRiggle

Enri was the first person Ainz saved and someone he made an explicit effort to "help" at one point. She is also the acknowledged leader of Carne Village that Ainz protects to the point the Lupusregina has been stationed there. Whether or not he "likes" her is certainly debatable, but she is someone that is under his personal protection. (Unlike Renner and Tsuare, altho Tsuare MIGHT be considered official Nazarick now since she is a maid)


Maleficent_Ad_3958

I think he respects the war troll Go Gin he fought in the arena enough to revive him. Admittedly, it's to work for the Great Tomb but I think he at least respects his skills and sees him as different from other regular trolls.
