The Legend of Sun Knight Volume 1: An Introduction to Knight Theory
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
First Shared Rule of the Twelve Holy Knights: “No matter what happens, the Sun Knight is perfect” – translated by Erihppas
“Is Sun actually Supreme Dragon?”
A large banner was pinned up in the middle of the conference room. In order to avoid attention, not even a single candle was lit in the room. Inside, eleven knights sat at the long table, each person’s face and figure hidden in the darkness.
One of the knights spoke up first, “Sun Knight’s Sun-Style Swordsmanship has always been so messy to the point that it is difficult for people to recognize it, but of course he could not hide his face from Blaze—”
Another knight immediately interrupted the former’s words. “No! I’ve never said that Supreme Dragon is Sun, nor would I ever admit that Supreme Dragon is Sun.”
“Even if he is, I advise you to pretend that he isn’t,” a deep, severe voice rang out. As the voice pierced through the silence, everyone seemed to sit up straighter.
“While we have always upheld the principle that Sun Knight is the personification of Light and Justice, he really went too far this time. To even use necromancy… Don’t you think he needs to be warned?”
Hearing that, everyone rushed to put in their two cents’ worth.
“But he has already learned it. What are you going to warn him about? He won’t be able to forget what he has learned.”
“At least advise him not to learn advanced necromancy.”
“Idiot! Make it a rule that he should not use necromancy for the rest of his life, and forbid him from using elemental magic as well. What sort of knight uses magic?”
“Oh please! You know how lousy Sun’s swordsmanship is. If you forbid him from using necromancy and elemental magic, he’d probably get slashed to death in a single strike by someone two days later.”
Knock knock knock!
There was a sudden rapping at the door. Everyone quieted down and looked at each other, not knowing whether or not they should answer.
“Come in.” The knight with a deep and severe voice was the one who finally spoke.
The door opened. A large amount of sunlight filtered into the dark conference room. The person who entered was like the sunlight as well, with shiny blond hair and bright cheerful smiles. No one could associate this light-filled man with anything related to darkness.
This person has a title that befits his appearance: Sun Knight. He looked around with a smile, as if he did not see the banner “Is Sun actually Supreme Dragon?” posted on the wall.
Sun Knight wore an apologetic and sincere expression as he spoke with an impassioned voice, “My dear brothers, Sun is extremely sorry for interrupting your secret meeting. Disrupting everyone’s conference is a sin that cannot be forgiven! However, Sun could not bear to wait to share with my brothers this miracle the God of Light has granted me.”
Sun’s expression was once again filled with joy. “Sun has just received the God of Light’s blessing, and finally understands the true meaning of Resurrection! Ah! Even His Holiness the Pope could not help but rejoice! My brothers can now fight evil with no qualms about getting any heavy injuries, for Sun believes that so long as my brothers’ heads remain, Sun can save everyone from Death’s hands!”
Having said that, his joyful words took a sharp turn, and Sun sighed. “Alas! It is unfortunate that Resurrection is a very unstable holy magic; it is not known when it will succeed and when it will fail! If the skill fails because of ‘unknown reasons’ and causes any brothers to lose their chance of living, Sun will feel extremely sorrowful.”
“…” Everyone continued their silence.
“After sharing this joyful news, Sun shall not disturb my brothers from communicating the God of Light’s compassion, and shall wish everyone here happiness.”
With a smile so bright that it looked a little scary, Sun Knight slowly closed the wooden door, and the room returned to darkness once more. After a moment of silence in the dark conference room, someone finally asked in a forced voice, “Was that…a bribe?”
“No, that was a threat!”
Judgment Knight slowly stood up, deciding to leave this pointless conference, and only leave a piece of advice out of kind-heartedness, “I warn you all, our Sun Knight has even dared to expose the king. If your position is not above that of the king’s, it’s best not to mess with him.”
Storm Knight also stood up and lazily added, “He mastered the Resurrection spell, which even the Pope can’t cast, and he’s proficient in holy magic, elemental magic, and necromancy. He has a teacher with the title of ‘The Strongest Sun Knight in History’ to support him from behind, as well as a necromancy teacher, and, incidentally, Sun just might be good friends with a Death Lord.”
Luckily, his swordsmanship isn’t even an ordinary type of lousy… everyone thought silently.
“Goddammit! Is he the Sun Knight or an evil Demon King?” Earth Knight growled, livid.
Leaf Knight chuckled as he said, “Oh Earth, have you forgotten what our teachers taught us since we were young till now?”
“Remember, child, no matter what the circumstances are, the Sun Knight is always perfect!”
Additional information: “Child, even if you’ve unintentionally discovered the Sun Knight’s imperfection, you had better just admit that he’s perfect unless you want to experience his imperfection yourself.”
