Seventh Tactic of Slaying a Dragon: Choose Your Companions for Slaying a Dragon – translated by ErodingPersona

As I gradually regained consciousness, I thought of opening my eyes, but I immediately stopped myself.

Why should I? I’m blind; there is no point in physically opening my eyes.

The images in my mind gradually became clearer… However, all of a sudden they stopped becoming clearer. My sight was still very blurry, not at all like how clear it had been before.

I opened my eyes thinking that they might actually be of some use, but even after doing so the images around me were still blurry and unchanged.

I was startled, slightly confused as to why this was happening, until I realized that the dark element in my vicinity was interfering with my ability to sense other elements, causing the blurriness of the images in my mind. When I strengthened my sensing ability, the images returned to their usual clarity.

This has absolutely nothing to do with opening my eyes!

I ripped a strip of cloth from my robes and started winding it around my eyes.

After that, I stood up and roared to my surroundings, “Scarlet, where are you? Don’t keep on hiding. I don’t trust you, I don’t trust Ecilan, and I don’t trust Sybil. I don’t trust anyone!”

“That’s very good!”

This time I wasn’t taken by surprise. I actually thought of slowly turning around and facing the little girl behind my back, but I stopped again. The movement would have been as meaningless as opening my eyes.

I had already “seen” her, so I had no need to face her. She looked exactly the same as before, like a little girl, although I now highly doubted that she really was one.

“You are becoming more and more like how you should be. Have you started regaining your memories?” Scarlet asked teasingly.

I flinched and reflexively turned around, blurting out, “What do you mean?”

“Ah! Seems like there’s still a little ways to go.” Scarlet, however, smiled and said, “You don’t actually need to turn around to see me, isn’t that so?”

Hearing this, my fury welled up again and I could not help roaring, “Don’t change the subject! Scarlet, what on earth do you mean? Don’t play riddles with me, and don’t disappear again!”

“I can’t help that. They destroyed my body and now I have no form, so I had to wait a really long time before I could appear before you!”

What? Stunned, I asked in confusion, “Who are ‘they’?”

“Who else?” Scarlet sneered. “Who else but the people who had just tried to lie to you?”

“Blaze Knight?” I asked, then stayed silent for a moment before answering in full confidence, “No, you mean the Church of the God of Light, don’t you?”

“Bingo!” Scarlet nodded her head, satisfied, and said with a smile, “However, to be more exact it’s the Sun Knight.”

The Sun Knight wants to deceive me? I hesitated, yet I still could not stop myself from saying, “But, Ecilan said that I am the Sun Knight…”

Scarlet suddenly snorted and laughed. The tinkling, silver-bell-like laughter of hers rang for quite some time until she shook her head and said, “Grisia, you actually believe him? You are full of the dark element, you use necromancy, you don’t know how to use a sword, and you’re not good at horseback-riding… Even if you have lost your memories, you can’t really think that you’re the Sun Knight, can you? You don’t even meet the simplest of requirements for being a knight!”

“I…” I was dumbstruck. That’s right! What on earth was I expecting?

Scarlet suddenly gave a cry, “Oh no, my time is up again. Grisia, remember, don’t trust anyone. Use them, but don’t trust them.”

My heart lurched, and I asked sharply, “Including you?”

“Yes, including me.”

Scarlet nodded her head, then said, “Decide for yourself whether or not you want to follow my instructions. Now, I’m telling you, you have already arrived at your desired destination, the entrance to the Kingdom of Moon Orchid’s largest land of darkness, the Valley of Trizer. The item you’ve lost is in the deepest part of the valley. Go and get it. After that, you will know the entire truth.”

Valley of Trizer… That was indeed my desired destination. I had originally planned to lure Blaze Knight here, but it had never crossed my mind that the “item” I had lost would be here as well.

Even though I had intentionally followed Scarlet’s instructions to head northeast, I didn’t think I would make such an accurate choice and actually find the exact place Scarlet had talked about.

Although my mind was still full of questions that I wanted to ask, Scarlet’s figure was already fading away. Seeing this, I hurriedly asked, “You’re not coming along with me? Then at least tell me, what did I lose?”

“You will know… when you see it, because it is something that originally belonged to you.”

As Scarlet’s figure slowly faded, her voice also became fainter and fainter, as if it were floating away like the wind…

“Just like how you knew that that unicorn belongs to you too.”

Before disappearing, she stretched out her hand and pointed to a corner. I extended my sensing ability to the spot and unsurprisingly discovered that the previously vacant space was suddenly occupied by the unicorn. Even Ecilan was still tied on top of it, but both of his eyes were tightly closed. He didn’t seem conscious.

Even after Scarlet’s figure had completely disappeared, I blankly stood where I was for a while until I remembered that I had been cut by a sword. If I don’t hurry up and heal myself, I might die from excessive blood loss… Eh!

Where’s my wound?

There was not a single scratch on my chest, or even any bloodstains. If not for the fact that my shirt had such a gaping tear in it, I might have even doubted whether I had really been injured.

Was it Scarlet who healed me? If so, then following Scarlet’s instructions shouldn’t be a mistake, right?

My mind was in a muddle. I had absolutely no idea who was lying to me and who wasn’t, but at least, up until now, Scarlet had never hurt me. She brought me to the unicorn, gave me A Complete Guide to Necromancy Spells, saved me from the hands of Chikus Blaze, and even healed me; furthermore, she brought the unicorn and my hostage back to me as well.

With my hand, I beckoned the unicorn who immediately hurried over happily and started licking me. I gave a back-handed smack to its head.

“You like licking me so much, do you think I’m food…”

Wait a minute!

Speaking of which, what does a unicorn eat to sustain itself? How come I don’t think I have ever seen it eat anything? I stared doubtfully at the unicorn. It still persisted on sticking close to my hand, continuously licking it to show its affection.

It doesn’t feed on humans, does it?

When I immediately retracted my hands, the unicorn started whinnying in displeasure. I hit it on its head again. After the unicorn gave a cry of dismay, it lowered its head until it was almost touching the ground.

Seeing this, my heart softened. After all, it had been very obedient all this time. Letting it lick my hand a bit was not a problem… as long as it didn’t eat me.

“But still, you always lick me. You have never bitten me, so you probably don’t eat humans, right?”

I hesitantly extended my hand. The horse immediately lifted its head and started licking my hand. What on earth is on my hand that is so nice to lick?

Even if it is eating “sweat,” after two licks all my sweat would be gone. Other than the horse’s saliva, there was absolutely nothing else on my hand… Hang on!

It couldn’t be… I doubtfully gathered some holy element onto my hand. My body naturally attracts a small amount of the holy element. If there is anything on my hand, it should only be this.

After I finished gathering it, I started to observe the unicorn’s movements. The horse was actually so excited that it snorted and stomped its hooves, both eyes shining with greed… What? I can’t see color, so how can I see that its eyes are shining with greed?

If a horse has opened its eyes even wider than peaches and saliva is drooling down the length of its face, then I don’t need to be able to see color to know that its eyes must be shining even brighter than my holy light.

Following that, I extended a hand, rested my chin on the other, and sat on the ground, grudgingly letting the horse eat its “meal.”

“So you really have been treating me as your food all this time. No wonder you like to lick me so much, you gluttonous horse.”

Although I said this, I gathered even more of the holy element, letting the unicorn lick to its heart’s content.

After all, this perverted and gluttonous horse was my only companion now. I forced a smile, looked at the unicorn, and muttered, “Say, I really should give you a name, since you’re my companion.”

Hearing this, the unicorn actually stopped licking its food, lifted its head, and neighed urgently.

“You actually want a name so badly? Alright, let me think. What I should call you?” I frowned and started thinking.

At this, the unicorn used its head to nudge me, and it gently bit my hand. It kept on repeating the nudging and hand-biting actions.

“Hand?” I asked in confusion.

It shook its head vigorously, stopped for a while, and then switched to gathering a massive amount of holy light onto its body.

Somewhat understanding, I asked, “Light?”

The unicorn nodded its long neck energetically. It then used the horn on its head to touch me gently, and then it kept on repeating the action.

“Horn?” I hesitantly said.

The unicorn nodded its head vigorously. After nodding, it stared at me with much anticipation. Don’t question me any more than this why I am blind yet can still see something like anticipation.

If there was a horse who was continuously braying at a pitch eight times higher than normal, had eyes which were wider than peaches and hooves that were rearing restlessly towards one’s body, only someone who was blind, deaf, and had lost all sense of touch would not know how strongly this horse was anticipating my answer.

I felt sorry for Ecilan, who was still on top of its back. He definitely had to be sleeping very precariously.

“Don’t rush. Let me think, light and horn… Light and horn!”

A thought flashed though my mind and I cried out, “I get it, so you are…”

The unicorn stopped all of its movements and stared at me with wide eyes, not daring to even breathe loudly.



This is the first time I’ve ever seen a unicorn fall down.

“Aren’t both light and horns white? They should be white, right? At least that’s what my general knowledge is telling me. Since you pointed to light and horn, and both of these are white-colored things, your name must be Whitey. What on earth are you making a ruckus for?”

I unhappily smacked Whitey’s head and reprimanded, “Even if you have a name, there’s no need to jump around so happily. Keep up the noise and you won’t have any dinner tonight!”

Whitey didn’t dare to jump around anymore, but it started making whimpering sounds. This time though, I didn’t stop it. Since the entrance to the valley was so eerily quiet, a little bit of noise was alright.

After naming Whitey, I observed my surroundings. To both my left and right were cliffs; only to my immediate front was some blurry flat land, the reason for the blurriness being the super dense dark element there.

In front of me should be the Valley of Trizer. Should I head in? Or should I leave, taking Whitey and Ice Knight along and continue being chased by people?

I forced a smile.

Actually, I don’t have any other choice.

Unless I was willing to continue living as a person without memories, on the run from people out to kill me, I had absolutely no choice but to follow Scarlet’s words…


Startled, I reached out with my sensing ability and noticed that it was Woodrow and the others who had arrived earlier than me. They jogged out from the valley, naturally running toward where I was.

Iacchi was the fastest. He was the first to reach my side and immediately slapped my back, hard. As I painfully turned to face him, he suddenly burst out with a gong-like cry, “Grisia, what happened to your eyes?”

When both Igor and Woodrow reached me, they also stared at my eyes in surprise.

I then remembered that my eyes were still bound by a strip of cloth. I immediately took it off and told them, “Nothing, my eyes had just hurt a little, so I covered them for the time being.”

“They have already healed completely, right? Don’t scare us.” Igor grabbed my head with his hands and stared at my eyes relentlessly, as if he would find some sort of incurable disease in them.

Woodrow worriedly asked, “Do you want to go find someone to heal them first? You might have fallen sick.”

“No way, can’t your healing spells do the trick?” Iacchi let loose an incredulous expression.

“A cleric’s healing spells aren’t all encompassing. If it’s a normal illness, a healing spell’s effect won’t help much.” Woodrow explained thoroughly and then turned to me and asked, “Grisia, you must have tried a healing spell to heal it, then noticed that there was little effect, right?”

I… I could only nod my head.

“Oh no, you might really have fallen ill,” Woodrow said with concern while placing a hand on my forehead.

“How is he? There’s nothing wrong with Grisia, is there?” Igor asked anxiously.

“I don’t think he has a fever.”

I carefully sensed their expressions. All of them seemed to have a look of concern, and none of them bore any atypical looks.

“We should leave and bring Grisia for a checkup…”

How can I let that happen? I still have to find the item I’ve lost! I hurriedly said, “No, don’t. Blaze Knight might catch up soon, and I really am alright now.”

“Really?” Woodrow asked me doubtfully.

“If you aren’t alright, don’t push yourself,” Igor loudly muttered.

Don’t trust anyone.

My heart suddenly prickled painfully, and I forced myself to say, “There really is nothing wrong.”

Iacchi clapped my back and said, “Then that’s alright. It would be terrible if we finished this at the expense of your eyesight. That wouldn’t be worthwhile at all.”

“That’s right, I forgot to say, you did well!” Woodrow patted my shoulder. His pat was definitely a lot gentler than Iacchi’s. He softly said, “Good work.”

Igor said in a loud voice, “I admire you, Grisia. You actually escaped from Blaze Knight. You really are talented…”

Sybil and Yuna betrayed me.

“What’s wrong? Why aren’t you saying anything?” Iacchi asked, puzzled.

“Could it be that your eyes are hurting again?”

“Do they still hurt?” Igor asked, worried, “Then we should follow what Woodrow said and go heal them.”

Sybil even shot an arrow at me.


“Nothing… I’m really alright…” I gave a brilliant smile and said, “I just feel a little tired. As long as we move slowly, I’ll be fine. Let’s move out. It’d be bad if Blaze Knight caught up with us.”

Everyone nodded their heads.

Along the way, Igor and Iacchi were warned in advance by Woodrow not to goof off, otherwise they might disrupt my rest, so both of them were very obedient. Then, while walking Woodrow told me about the Valley of Trizer’s current state, even lowering his voice, treating me as though I were sleepwalking, and he was afraid to wake me up!

“Ever since we’ve reached the Valley of Trizer we’ve been following your plan, first setting up at the borders of the valley, but we found something strange.”

“What’s strange?” Listening to his soft voice had made me feel drowsy. Finally something has caught my attention.

Unsettled, Woodrow furrowed his brows and said, “The Valley of Trizer has always been one of the three largest lands of darkness in the Kingdom of Moon Orchid. It should be filled with undead creatures and dark demon beasts, but we found an area with absolutely no undead creatures.”

Iacchi, who must have been bored out of his mind, immediately cut in, “While waiting for you, we thought about going in to take a look, but… Hehe, even though there weren’t any undead creatures, there were still ferocious beasts! So we didn’t actually go in.”

Absolutely no trace of undead creatures… This abnormality gave me a familiar feeling. It might have had something to do with the item Scarlet spoke of. I couldn’t help voicing my suggestion, “Let’s go take a look!”

Stunned, Woodrow said hesitantly, “But we still have an unconscious Ice Knight on our hands. Isn’t this a bad idea?”

“Don’t worry, he won’t wake up for a while.” I said with indifference, “Just treat him as Whitey’s saddle.”

“…Whitey? Who is Whitey?” Woodrow, Iacchi, and Igor all had startled looks on their faces. They seemed not to understand who Whitey was.

I replied crossly, “Besides the unicorn, who else here can wear a saddle?”

Everyone’s eyes widened, and after a while Iacchi cried out, “You named a unicorn Whitey?”

I immediately denied it. “No, the unicorn wanted that name.”

The unicorn immediately started whinnying loudly and stomping its hooves, occasionally even rearing up… Poor Ecilan! He definitely could only be having nightmares.

“… Are you sure?”

I nodded my head. “Yes, it signed it out for me.”

“Since when did it have hands…” Igor said, dazed.

“It pointed at my hand and brandished its horn.” I said confidently, “Think about it! The holy light on my hand is white, right? The unicorn’s horn is also white, right?”

All three of them nodded their heads. I felt happy. Luckily, I hadn’t guessed wrong.

“So there’s nothing wrong with calling it Whitey, right?”

“That’s true when you put it that way! So it really is named Whitey.”

Igor was the first one to nod his head and agree with me. Iacchi shrugged his shoulders, and seemed not to care about what the unicorn’s name was. Woodrow, however, hesitated for a while before nodding his head.

The unicorn whinnied even louder… It really is very excited! Is having a name so delightful?

Just then, Woodrow couldn’t help whispering, “But don’t you think it might also be referring to ‘Holy Lighthorn’ or something of the sort?”

The unicorn suddenly started neighing brazenly and stomping its hooves.

“You really are noisy! If you make any more noise, you won’t get any dinner!” I roared at Whitey, then turned my head and said, “Don’t you find it strange for a horse to have such a sophisticated vocabulary? Not to mention how ‘Holy Lighthorn’ is such a mouthful. Isn’t Whitey easier and more understandable?”

Woodrow couldn’t help agreeing, “That… that’s true. It must be Whitey then.”

I nodded my head matter-of-factly.

At this, the unicorn dropped its head. Igor stretched out a hand to pat its head and said, “The name Whitey really isn’t too bad. It’s definitely much easier to pronounce than Holy Lighthorn… Ah! You bit me, let go! It hurts!”

“Alright, let’s get a move on! Whitey, let go of Igor’s palm… I mean, let go of his entire arm.”

Afterward, we moved deeper and deeper into the valley and finally stopped having an easy time. A few types of creatures of darkness, especially undead creatures, became as numerous as weeds on a grass plain. Two steps in and a crowd would surge forward. At first, Igor and Iacchi attacked the low-level undead creatures as if playing a game, even competing over the number of undead creatures they finished off.

However, as we headed deeper, all of us started noticing something strange. No matter how many we’d beaten, the number of undead creatures wasn’t being reduced but was increasing instead. Even some of the low-level undead creatures that should have run off after one beating rushed and attacked us from the back.

Finally, in comparison to the five people and one horse on our side, the undead creatures opposite of us seemed like an army.

“Hurry, hurry up and fall back!” Iacchi shrieked.

“What’s going on?” Woodrow gaped and gasped uncharacteristically, “When we came earlier, there weren’t that many undead creatures!”

Immediately, Igor the warrior dutifully lifted up his sword… Although the tip of the sword was trembling enough to look like a V.

“Probably because Whitey, Ecilan and I are all here,” I realized.

“Our bodies are filled with holy light. In the eyes of those undead creatures filled with the dark element, we’re probably as bright as a bonfire. Although undead creatures should be afraid of the holy element, this is their base camp. There’s a high chance that their fury has already overpowered their fear, so they’re all grouping together to attack us.”

“N-now what are we supposed to do?” Standing at the forefront, the warrior Igor’s voice was trembling so much that he sounded like he was about to burst into tears.

“Don’t worry.” I smiled lightly and said, “As long as we turn into them, there won’t be any problems. Undead creatures won’t attack their brethren.”

“Turn into undead creatures?” Iacchi immediately cried out in a strange tone, “Who wants to change into them! Better to die than to cling onto an unnatural life! I don’t want to die so young!”

“Don’t panic so much,” I said crossly. “You don’t want to die. Do you think I want to either?”

“Then what are you planning to do…”

“No matter what your plan is, hurry up! They’re rushing toward us already!”

Iacchi hadn’t even finished his question when Igor cut him off. Hearing Igor, Iacchi and Woodrow immediately assumed a fighting stance. Iacchi drew out a dagger and stood behind Igor. Woodrow, on the other hand, changed into a panther, and stood next to the warrior.

This surprised me. They’re facing so many undead creatures, yet they still have the will to fight? Maybe I really have been belittling Woodrow and the rest of them.

However, even so, I had no wish to fight against an entire army.

I dispersed more than half of the holy light surrounding my body and started gathering the dark element. This was even easier than gathering holy light. The dark element here was so thick that my surroundings had been misty and blurred to me all along. I simply stretched out my hands; immediately, my hands filled with a large ball of dark element that was thick enough to be kicked around.

After that, I shrouded everyone in the dark element I had gathered.

Under the shroud of dark element, the undead creatures immediately ceased rushing forward. They acted as if they had lost their target. After staring stupidly for a moment, they started searching but couldn’t detect anything. After a while, they started dispersing. Some even floated past us, but none bothered to give us a single glance.

Seeing this, the originally terrified trio calmed down and sheathed their weapons. Even Woodrow changed back to human form.

“So that’s what you meant. You should have said so earlier!” Iacchi loudly proclaimed, “Explain things better! Changing into them… Did you want to scare us to death?!”

“Grisia, I want to punch you dead!”

True to his words, after sheathing his sword Igor rushed over and caught me, wedged my head in his arms, and raised his fist… I actually worried for a bit, thinking he really was going to punch me, but in the end he placed his fist on top of my head and then twisted his fist back and forth incessantly.

“Hahaha! That tickles!” I was itching and laughing as I strongly objected, “It’s your own fault for misunderstanding. It had nothing to do with me!”

“You little…” Hearing my words, Iacchi also joined in rubbing his fist into my head.

Off to the side, Woodrow shook his head with a completely helpless expression on his face as he watched our childish antics.

After playing about for a while, I suddenly shrugged off Igor and said indifferently, “You’re awake, Ice Knight?”

Everyone stopped their games and swiveled their heads to look at Whitey’s back. Ecilan really had opened his eyes. He stayed silent for a while; only his pupils moved from left to right, as if observing his surroundings. Finally, he murmured quietly, “How could I have fainted…”

It was probably Scarlet’s fault, I think? However, I thought Scarlet would have made it so that he would remain in a comatose state until the end, just in case he started lying to me again. I had never thought that Scarlet would leave him be.

Ecilan turned to look at me and asked in a quiet voice, “Is Blaze alright?”

“Yes,” I sneered and couldn’t help mocking, “He’s in such perfect health that he almost cut me in half.”

Hearing this, Ecilan said, startled, “He didn’t know that the person he was attacking was you, did he?”

“He knew,” I said coolly. “He also said that I’m definitely not the Sun Knight.”

Ecilan blinked, confusion on his face.

Woodrow asked acutely, “What Sun Knight?”

I hesitated, but still explained, “Nothing. To escape, Ecilan lied to me and said that I’m the Sun Knight. He wanted me to leave with him.”

“You’re the Sun Knight?” Iacchi opened his mouth wide.

The three of us plugged our ears in unison.

“How can that be~~ HAHAHA! That’s so funny that it’s giving me a stomachache!” Iacchi laughed while saying, “If Grisia is the Sun Knight, then I am the Pope!”

Poor Ecilan… Because he was tied up, he had no way to cover his ears and could only suffer through Iacchi’s explosive laughter. Unfortunately, all three of us only had two hands each. Although we sympathized with him, we didn’t have any extra hands to help him block the noise.

Finally, Iacchi’s loud laughter stopped, and only then did the three of us drop our hands. I sympathetically cast two healing spells on Ecilan’s ears. The latter’s expression showed that he was probably about to faint again.

Woodrow murmured quietly, “Luckily an undead creature’s hearing isn’t particularly good. If not, all of the undead creatures in the valley would have been drawn out by that.”

“Poor you!” I sympathetically rubbed Ecilan’s head, and at the same time mussed up his hair to prevent him from being too good-looking.

Ecilan stared at me coldly.

I don’t know why, but after being glared at by him, I suddenly felt that something was not quite right. I immediately changed the subject. “Ecilan, since you’ve said you know me, look carefully at me. Do you feel as if there is something missing from me?”

Unexpectedly, he replied without any hesitation, “A lot of things are missing.”

“I mean, are there any very important items gone?” I thoroughly explained, “Anything that I always keep by my side, never removing it, but is now gone?”

Ecilan stared seriously at me. After quite some time, he nodded and said, “There really is something missing.”

“What’s missing?” I asked in agitation. Finally, finally I will know what it is that I have lost.

“You’re missing…”

All of us listened attentively to the answer.

Ecilan replied in complete seriousness, “You’re missing a little pouch with a sun-shaped symbol embroidered on it, the one that I gave you for you to stuff in your sweets. You never take it off your body.”


If the item Scarlet wants me to find is a pouch used for storing candy, I will definitely mince her and make sweets out of her!

Then, Ecilan suddenly added, “There also seems to be a necklace, but that was something you only started wearing about a month ago.”

I started. A month ago? “What did that necklace look like?”

Blanking out, Ecilan shook his head and said, “I’ve never paid much attention. I’ve only heard from Metal who said that he saw you wearing a large jewel. He wondered where you’d snatched it from, and wanted to inform the Pope that you’d stolen it…”

“…What is Metal Knight’s name?”

“Laica Metal.”

I viciously said, “I’ll remember him!”

“Is that so?” Ecilan murmured in a low voice, “Then he’ll definitely be very touched. Besides Knight-Captain Judgment, you’ll actually also remember his name correctly. Before, whenever you called him by his name, you would call him Lime, or Slime.”

“Sl-Slime? Ha…” Iacchi wanted to laugh again. Fortunately, Igor managed to cover his mouth in time.

“I called him Slime?” I asked curiously, “Then what did I call you?”


“Hey! Talk!” I nagged him, “Unless you are lying to me again! If not, tell me! What did I call you?”

    Well if that doesn’t confirm that Scarlet=Pink than I don’t know what does. And there goes Grisia with his naming sense again for the poor unicorn. And then poor Ecilan having to shut up so as not to tell Grisia what he called him by.

  2. shadowofzo

    Need… More…. Story… Thank you for the story though :D Appreciated greatly or I would explode :)

  3. KuwaNeko

    Darn Scarlet…. she’s making things so complicated, what the hell does she mean that the holly temple’s been lying to Grisia……

    hoho, and again comes Grisia’s horrible naming skills… though I must admit that ‘White’ or ‘Whitey’ is a lot simpler than ‘Holy Lighthorn’ …. the second one is very cool though…

    Ice wakes, and can’t believe that Blaze attacked Grisia (who would, Blaze being Blaze)

    oh god, looooooooooooooollll
    ‘Sun, you’re missing the very important sweets pouch I made for you’
    lol lol rofl… thats just like Ecilan… oh god….

    and Ice’s comment that Metal would be touched if Grisia remembered his actual name…
    I feel so bad for the other nine Holly Knights… (not counting Lesus and Roland – since they don’t seem to have … nicknames?)

    and still no dragon…. how the hell does the dragon even enter the picture here?

    • jam cha


      I think it has something to do with the necklace being in the dragon’s lare ??? Not too sure , but if you think it that way , then the title would make sense?? Hahaha… Ice knight is so funny : 3 nyah~

    • MPToki

      Or it could mean that the item they are going to find is Sun’s Dragon’s Saint Brigandine?!
      But then again I don’t know any other reason as to why it has Dragon as the title for the chapter…

    • noobie

      the dragon’s saint brigandine is already with him. That was the only item returned to him by yuna or was it sybil?

  4. 15B

    Oh… So he really did lose the gem…
    The only question remaining now is who will kill Grisia first: Knight-Captain Judgement or Neo?

    ^.^ Thank you for the translation!

  5. beta

    That poor unicorn… so it turns out that Sun is like a long-term venus fly trap for unicorns. They come around looking for some food, and instead get used as a workhorse and called Whitey for the rest of their lives.

    • Ronale

      This is a very good way of putting it! I guess that Grisia is very good at tricking people by seeming harmless at first and then saddling them with endless tasks and embarassing nicknames – no reason why his expertise should be lost on unicorns who innocently assume a huge amount of holy light to be a good thing.

  6. dollyfishe

    wahhahaha …. grisia actually gathering info for him being Sun Knight ^o^ soooooooo cute hihihihi
    and then again … scarlet is pink ?? but then again, somethings just feels not right @@

  7. Lucifer

    With Sun not restraining himself he’ll probably down the dragon in an instant with a yawn and wave of his hand… ^^

    Third sentence from Last:
    “Sl-Slime? Ha…” Iacchi wanted to laugh again. Fortunately, Igor managed to cover his mouth in time.

    I’m quite sure you’ve gotten the names wrong, It is Igor who Laugh and Iacchi who covers his mouth.

    • [PR]lucathia

      Iacchi is the one with the gong-like laughter. Igor managed to cover “his,” meaning Iacchi’s mouth, in time to save everyone’s ears.

    • momiji

      It’s the Eternal Tranquility that Neo gave to him for safeekeeping. They got it at Requirement #6: “The Road Every Adventure Must Travel – An Underground Cavern”. Then we knew Neo gave it to him at Requirement #7: “A Must for Every Adventure – Sacrifice” since it has a very powerful water element and only his own strong holy element can cover it.

  8. E

    I know Pink has been wanting Sun to be her successor, but if this is her way of doing then I really am starting to hate her. D:<

    Thanks for the update! <3

    • @Ronale
      Speaking of Grisia’s healing, my question is why are even the blood stains gone? A weird power of Scarlet’s? I can think of something else that likes blood… *cough* Dragon’s Saint Brigandine *cough* Maybe that’s how the dragon comes into play?

    • Ronale

      Yees… Thank you for reminding me of that little badge/shirt. There’s been so many mentions of dragons that I totally forgot to connect it to that thing. But so far, DSB is the only thing Grisia has from his old life, he has had it practically since the beginning of the story and yet nobody has mentioned it since, even Scarlet is (intentionally?) neglecting the poor thing. Following the rules of suspense it should be making a big bang soon. On the other hand I wonder if DSB is allowed to drink blood without its owner’s permission.

    • 15B

      It would be wasteful to allow that spilled blood to go to waste! However, it seems unlikely the shirt is allowed to drink blood without permission.
      It makes sense that the Dragon Saint Brigandine is lying low for that impact later, however, I can’t really see how the black shirt could do anything plot-shaking…

  9. NeoPhantos

    Comedy incarnate of an update! Trully amazing how Ice has no problem talkign about how he makes his sweets in front of outsiders! lol

    • Little Writer

      Well, it’s not like those nosy adventurers would “accidentally” have a “suspicious accident” after discovering the true face of the Sun Knight. What’s the point if Ecilan also “accidentally” discloses his inner personality? Then it would surely not be suspicious at all, right? ^^

      I love this chapter, it made my day :3 Please keep it up, PR!
      And Scarlet possibly isn’t Pink…because everyone keeps insisting otherwise. I have the feeling that they want to transform Grisia into something else…
      After all, if Scarlet is telling Grisia that he isn’t a knight, then they want to transform him into a dark-creature???
      Oh no. Grisia, you are SO dead by Judgement, the Pope, Roland, Neo, and the God of Light.
      WOOT! Team Evil Grisia ALL DA WAY!
      By the way, if Scarlet really is Pink, then I think that she would want revenge of some sort, don’t you?

    • Gohankuten

      @Little Writer
      But Grisia truly isn’t a knight lol. him being a knight is a seal on his true self since he can’t be a knight to save his life. And Pink already wanted Grisia as her apprentice to become a necromancer. And Scarlet has to be Pink cause let’s face it, factoring in the fact of being a Lich that has had the body destroyed by the Sun Knight, has a name that is a feminine shade of red, wants to turn Grisia into a necromancer, and appears as a little girl how many liches can there be like that. Scarlet has to be Pink due to all the evidence pointing that out.

    • Kuran Nita

      @Little Writer
      She is not pink but is the same creature. And about her body got destroyed by Sun, maybe it’s referring to Grisia’s fight that made him lost his memory? I mean, I doubt that even the demon lord (Roland) could fought and inflicted such a wound, and impact, to Grisia. Must be a higher dark creature and all. We can explain what has gotten Sun in this mess if we use that theory… Of course that’s just MY theory… ^^
      The one that has made confused is the fact that she said that that unicorn is Grisia’s to begin with. If it really is, I think the story so far would mention it already as one of the Grisia Sun’s elegance and holy and whatever item.

    • Sword

      @Kuran Nita
      i believe Scarlet is a liche like Pink. she’s just has the additional “evil” though, basing on Sun’s knowledge about Pink’s existence in vol 3 and the ..umm..prologue sort in vol 1

    • Kuran Nita

      I know.. And she just care of Sun too much.. Thought her action this time made Sun suffer. I really looking forward for the next chapter. Hope tomorrow a new one, whether it’s LSK or Unbeatable, would come giving me a good laugh… *Pray*

  10. rahmachayank

    ╋╋ム┣┫ム╋╋ム ┣┫ム╋╋ム┣┫ム,
    Red is not pink right?
    I mean… Pink is reilly a twisted necromancy but she never lied to sun, just like to keeping secret from sun, not like red.

  11. Jasae Bushae

    huh….it mannages to at the same time it further confirms my theory about the gem AND that it is probably pink…
    wow, i will be amazed if i turn out to be right XD

    but yay~

    • SnowStorm

      @Jasae Bushae
      Yeah, but if you really think about it, I don’t believe that Pink is/was the kind of person to manipulate Grisia the way Scarlet is doing it. Just a thought.

    • Jasae Bushae

      Yeah, thats why i think its that super water gem ^^;
      on the other hand this whole learn necromancy angle really points a finger at pink who is a necromancer (on the other hand that sounds a little obvious)
      so…im hoping its revealed in this book ^^;

  12. kayue

    I had thought that Grisias’ misnaming skill was deliberate but guess not….
    Does this mean his new name for Ice is ‘Frosty’? And Leaf is ‘Greeny’? Sounds like my dog’s treat.

    Why didn’t Ice didn’t say that the missing item was the Holy Sun Sword?

    I really didn’t like the adventurers group, but I like them better for their care for Grisia. Except for the women.

    Thanks for the chapter.

    • MNeilG

      perhaps because Grisia would usually leave behind the ridiculously expensive and fragile antique that is the Holy Sun Sword when he is fighting Pink’s undead to vent his feelings for fear of breaking the sword in his hands

    • @kayue
      In the prologue, Judgment mentions that Grisia hardly ever brings the Divine Sun Sword out the Holy Temple.

      As for his misnaming skill, I thought the way Grisia was explaining things to Woodrow sounded highly suspicious. Not unlike how he persuaded others to go along with his flawed logic in the past.

    • Jasae Bushae

      Yeaaaaah, thats been bugging me too. ^^; The only conclusion from that i can draw from that is that grisla knew he was going to be meeting someone he was wary about and ended up over his head

    • Sword

      i think the former has something to do with him being a sun knight. now (the latter) he is acting like the kid he that he actually is

    • Shmi

      well, Grisia rarely bring the Holy Sun Sword with him (It was too expensive to get sharpened or something so he doesn´t want to use it xD ) so it´s not really something that he always keeps by his side.

    • Ronale

      It’s not as if Sun always kept the Holy Sun Sword at his side. As I remember, it was rather kept safely at the headquarters where it would stay nice and sharp.

  13. Ozzien

    There goes Grisia again with his nicknames.

    This seems distinctly not-Pink-like. Either It’s part of some elaborate ritual to create a body or it’s not Pink, I seriously doubt that it’s her and she’s doing it for fun.

  14. lulumoon

    Thank You for the latest Chapter!!! Poor Unicorn. Having Grisia name him “Whitey” is just wrong. What kind of mythical creature would have that simple a name? Now, did Grisia really think his name is Whitey, or is he just showing his sadistic side and ‘saddling’ the unicorn with a name it doesn’t like?

  15. momiji

    Is it really Pink? I can’t help but doubt a bit. If it was really Pink then why not just say it outright? like “I was your necromancy teacher” or something. Same old Grisia~ He’s really bad with names. Naming the Unicorn Whitey xD Though what did Scarlet mean that the Unicorn belonged to him? I don’t remember Grisia owning a Unicorn in the past volumes…Wonder when that happened? Yuna and Sybil really does bother him a lot still… :< It must be really hard…not knowing who to trust.
    Thanks for the chapter!!!! :D

  16. AC

    I guess anyone who Grisia cares about (except for Judgement, and maybe Roland) is doomed to have a terrible nickname. Not even the unicorn scaped!
    Thanks for the chapter.

    • IBGame

      Just people that Grisia cares about? Fake Pig and Radar would like to have words with you…

    • MPToki

      I know the Fake Pig means the “old” king, but who’s Radar? I don’t remenber that name…
      Goes back to look at chapters

    • [PR]lucathia

      Radar is Sun’s nickname for Judgment’s vice captain. I don’t actually remember if he’s been introduced yet by this point…

    • beta

      Anyone Sun isn’t completely terrified of gets a nickname. Fear seems to be what makes him remember names.

    • Gohankuten

      If that was the case then he would remember Ecilan’s name all the time for fear of him no longer making his sweets.

    • Saitou

      LOL, just like his teacher. He only remembers it correctly because of their skills (Just MAYBE). Swordsmanship. (Just my opinion though, Dont take me seriously & DO NOT flame.)

  17. Andi

    Excellent! Thank you so much for the new chapter!!

    Ya Know… Since Scarlet told Sun that EVERYONE is lying, and not to trust even her, maybe she’s saying confusing things that could trigger memories on purpose? What if she’s LYING when she says her body was destroyed by the Sun Knight because she’s checking if “the Sun Knight destroyed a Lych’s body” sounds familiar? On another note, though… Maybe her body was actually destroyed by a Sun Knight who isn’t Grizia..? She did say she couldn’t appear for a very long time in front of Grizia (like she was specifically wanting to talk to him) because her body had been destroyed (and if Grizia only started wearing that necklace a month ago, that means Pinks body was only destroyed 1 month ago.) We know that Scarlet has been stalking Sun (from all the knowledge she has of him), but the question is how long? Either Scarlet IS Pink and Pink has become a little deranged from losing her body, or Scarlet has been stalking and wanting to meet Grisia for a very, very long time…

    On another note, ya gotta love and pity Ice. He should just tell Grisia “Look. I can prove I know you. I guarantee that I can bake something that 10/10 people on the street would spit out and complain about, but you and only you would love and finish every bite.”

    • @Andi
      Interesting thoughts! I had always kinda figured that Grisia’s memory loss was caused by someone on purpose, but who knows? It also crossed my mind that Scarlet could be talking about a different Sun Knight. Whatever the case is, I’m sticking to my theory that who/whatever Scarlet is, she has something to do with Dragon’s Saint Brigandine. The current version of my theory goes something like this:

      Grisia discovered who/what DSB really is and decided he needed to destroy it. He took it to the mostly abandoned execution grounds and tried to destroy it with the Sun Sword. (Hence the blood found on the sword and the dark presence felt in the area.) Instead of destroying it, there was some sort of explosion from the clash of light and darkness or DSB counterattacking. Realizing the huge backlash coming, Grisia used all his power to teleport as far away from the city as he could, after which the full force of the explosion nearly killed him and caused his memory loss.

      Not sure about Scarlet’s identity. She could be DSB incarnate or maybe Pink since Pink did give him the armor in the first place. Scarlet is a very enigmatic existence. Even if my theory is on the right track, how does the Eternal Tranquility fit in and how did it end up in the Valley of Trizer? I really wonder about Scarlet’s background and her true intentions. Suggestions/corrections to my theory are always welcome!

    • dollyfishe

      it wont be like that since the roland wear that DSB when found out that grisia is missing

    • IBGame

      But Yu Wo isn’t revealing *anything* about that amnesia thing until the end of volume 6. Have fun waiting~

    • Sword

      i can understand the feeling of wanting to share a piece of the story especially when we think it’s really good. but please, please
      there really are those really sensitive of spoilers and hate them with a passion!

    • Nali

      Hmmm that’s a good idea, but then this question comes up: didn’t they give Grisia back the DSB badge when he wakes up? If he really had a fight with his armor, why would it come with him when he teleported? =o it wouldn’t know Grisia would get amnesia, right…?

      Or maybe it did it on purpose, and decided to resume it’s role as a harmless black shirt!! >=O

  18. NeoPhantos

    reincarnation? Maybe the unicorn was Grisia’s in a past life and Pink is trying to revive the personality of Grisia’s past life by destroying the current personality of “Grisia Sun”?

  19. Antloavina

    I hope Pink/Scarlet aren’t trying to make Sun their new Whitey.

    bad pun aside this chapter was a lot funnier than the last and will Sun have to purify the land of darkness to get his charm back? if so than he has his work cut out for him.

  20. Rancarr

    I think a dark element dragon came to the city (maybe because of the jewel) and Sun sensed it so he went to go confront it and was carried off by it. After it defeated him it took the eternal tranquility. So they are all headed toward it’s lair.

  21. d1r31

    Thank you for the translation. Very entertaining & hilarious chapter. When I read Sun Knight, I find that I always end up smiling. Great mood booster. Poor Unicorn, stuck with a name that does not befit his splendor. Grisia would not have felt so hurt by the “betrayal” if it had been the guys who had acted like that. Ah, the women were too cruel!

  22. alily

    scarlet is not pink
    I can assure you that
    she is someone closely related to grisia though

  23. Saitou

    Something’s wrong…. Where’s the vengeful Grisia Sun? T^T *facepalmed* It’s more fun when he’s sneaky. XD

  24. SnowStorm

    “The Sun Knight wants to deceive me?”
    Oh, Grisia!!!
    *rolls on the bed laughing, falls off and hits head*

  25. Maddy

    I think Scarelt may be similar to Pink in the fact that she may be undying and maybe the church attempted to kill her while Neo was still the sun knight or maybe Neo met her in Unbeatable and did something stupid

    Maybe Grisia was the Demon King in his past life and Scarlet is trying to revive his memories, but why would a demon king have a holy creature for a companion. Also why would he call it Holy LightHorn. Hmmmmm……

  26. MPToki

    Ohhh Snap!
    Grisa you are so dead….
    Just who are you Scarlet, I thought you were Pink, but not I am having doubts….
    When will you get your memory back?!
    But, I was laughing at Grisa’s naming ablity and the sweets pouch!
    Thank you for updating this chapter!!!=D

    • MPToki

      I made a mistake, “not” is “now”…. Don’t know how that happen, but its “now” not “not”.

  27. snuffar

    This is kinda really late… But I was too excited to read the chapter to pay any attention to the title before. Anyway, “Choosing Your Dragon-Slaying Companions” would be better than “Choosing Your Companions for Slaying a Dragon”.

    My heartfelt thanks for the chapter, as always.

  28. Dragonssing2emokid

    I’m just waiting for Neo and his Dark Elf companion to spring up and kick Griza’s butt because of the lack of gem and the general blindness… i suppose judgement would be awesome too… maybe Neo gets to the dragon first… that could be fun.

    • Nali

      I love that Ice reverted to his non-speaking personality to avoid telling Grisia his ‘nickname’ XD hahahahaha!!!

      On another note, don’t forget to update Metal’s real name on the character page, guys! =o

  29. applemania

    Oh holy~ legend of sun knight is great.
    But you guys including me who write so many comment has left me a big impact.
    I feel that, “Yes the chapter still long, my slide is still half on it.”
    Then you knowh what happen?
    “NOOOO~~ why the comment is filling 50% of the pages. NOOO it is finished”

  30. nuro

    uhhh… sun where are you missing…… i miss you… uwaaahhhh…. this is all pink fault!!!!!

  31. NecroNeco-chan

    Isn’t it obvious? She is a Lich, so she can jump in different Hosts, argo: Scarlet is Pink in her “new” acquired/presented body.
    She is fond of him, not to mention she has a contract with him.( She gets him only after his death. After his unfortunately failed training session, where he most probably tried to summon a Death Lord, High demon or similar lovely and highly deadly creator for spite. Hence the sun sword… and probably ’cause he destroyed Pinks former body… you must know that females can be “sometimes” reall~y/deadly vindictive not to mention they never forget… )
    That’s why she gives him a helping hand, but don’t forget that she is Pink, an necromancer and even worse a woman, so she messes also with his head, partially for the fun of it and partially for payback. No need to give everything for free or to make it to easy for him. ;)

  32. Tamult

    Since Pink does not equal Scarlet it seems, I apply this theory. Scarlet is not a member of the Church of Darkness, and is in fact, the instigator of the next books with the whole Demon King while being one of the Undying Lichs angle (assuming that the Demon King is not a Church of Darkness reference). The Unicorn is Grisia’s simply because it came for him originally. Grisia is missing his gem/necklace as well. He simply thinks he regains his memories, and becomes the sneaky Grisia who could out wit most people with his sneaky plans. And the end of the book/beginning of the next simply has him confront his choices on what he should believe. Ecilan did not lie about what he was missing (maybe) but Scarlet never hurt him.

    The Sun Knight she refers to might be Neo. Who apparently hunts Dragons (and dragons could become Lichs?). After you are done Sun Knighting, you hunt Dragons. Also, I feel for whoever becomes the apprentice of Grisia later on.

    Just to note, so far every Lich has had a color name as their name. Well, both of them if Scarlet is a Lich. I doubt she is the spirit of the gem simply because the gem is BLUE and is the water element. So color names are names to run away from very fast here.

  33. Deaththecripple

    You know what I wonder about? What was going on in Grisia’s life before the sun knight opening trials? We get glimpses of that and of other bits of his childhood at the church, and I’m pretty sure that somewhere it mentioned that he was an orphan, but what kind of parentage and experiences could lead to a child with even the beginning potential that Grisia had at ten years old? And if that’s at all pertinent, maybe that’s how the unicorn could be his…. Or, of course, it could just be that Whitey was destined to be put through being a servant of Grisia’s. Karma must’ve gotten him for something in a prior life. Poor Whitey. But that’s not my point. Anyways, hope to find out more about Grisia’s childhood at some point in the future, because there’s gotta be SOMETHING to turn somebody that amazing, and I don’t think it can all be chalked up to Neo’s brainwashing.

  34. shiro

    I’ve read the same chapter over three times yet it always gets me that Ice remembers Sun not having the candy bag.XD Way to be random Ice. Slime…poor metal…the only reason Sun never messes Judgement’s name is because he fears him. Sun does the rest on purpose….I wonder how bad he messes Ice’s name…

    Judgement don’t kill Sun when he gets home(no matter how tempting it is). More importantly I hope Sun doesn’t regret anything he does . I seriously don’t trust Red Poem shes trying to get Sun away from the 12 holy knights.

  35. Toni

    I’m pretty convinced that Scarlet isn’t Pink at all… I think their personalities differ too much.
