Happinet describes the story of The Strongest Magician in the Demon Lord’s Army was a Human as:

Ike is known as “the strongest magician in the demon king’s army” and is single-handedly conquering fortresses. The way he mows down the enemies with his immense magic truly makes him a “monster” feared by both allies and foes alike. However, he has a secret that he cannot tell other demons. “I’m actually human.”
