Eclipse Hunter Volume 1: Brothers
Original novel in Chinese by: 御我(Yu Wo)
Prologue—translated by Trespasserby (proofread by Arcedemius; C/E edited by lucathia)
In the year 2105, countries had fallen into decline. The Earth was split into several hundred economic organizations, and these several hundred economic organizations forged economic alliances for each other’s benefit. Among these was the Sun Alliance, which controlled thirty percent of the global economy, thus becoming the largest alliance in the world.
The Sun Alliance’s leader had so much power that he was widely acknowledged as the world’s uncrowned emperor.
Truth be told, several years ago, the Sun Alliance had only barely risen to being one of the top five economic alliances, but under their new leader’s control, its power increased at a startling rate, expanding and expanding…
It wasn’t that no alliance had thought of quashing this rapidly growing alliance, but that the leader seemed to be able to predict their moves ahead of time. Several times, just before a crisis could strike, the competitor would be preemptively dealt with. It wasn’t just that they were focusing on a few dangers while neglecting others. All those scheming against the Sun Alliance would find at the critical moment that someone had also been scheming against them. Every person would furiously shout that they only had one step left to defeat the Sun Alliance… But against all expectations, they had been defeated before that final step could be taken.
One time. Two times. Every time it was the same. Everyone finally understood that this wasn’t coincidence, it wasn’t divine will—it was “his” control over everything!
Every person who had previously opposed him swore to never do so again.
People said that everything was under his grasp. No scheme or plot could be concealed from him.
His existence in the world was like that of a god’s.
He was undefeatable.
Everyone gave this legendary figure the title—
“However, there is often an exceedingly simple origin behind every great legend.”
