The Legend of Sun Knight Volume 4: To Slay a Dragon
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Epilogue: Character Introductions – translated by lucathia
Kylie: Cleric of the Church of the God of Light.
Scarlet: A mysterious little girl.
Vidar: The vice-captain of the Judgment Knight Platoon.
Yu Wo: The author who keeps messing around with the character introductions.
The focus of To the Rescue of a Princess wasn’t on the princess, and the focus of To Slay a Dragon wasn’t on the dragon either. If my Chinese teacher were to see this, I would definitely receive such a comment: off-topic, delete and retrain1… No! I mean rewrite.
A lot of foreshadowing was buried in this volume, and it will be used to connect with and lead to the actual main plot that starts in the next volume. At the same time, I also let everyone understand the Twelve Holy Knights, the Son of the God of War, and Silent Eagle bit by bit, showing how they generally appear to normal people.
I also brought up each kingdom’s ideologies in passing. They’re very brief ideologies from each kingdom, but I also don’t want to make them too complicated (because the author wouldn’t be able to remember them) …Cough! No, it’s because the Legend of Sun Knight’s focus isn’t on the kingdoms, but rather on the Churches. There’s already too much to remember about the Churches, so I chose to focus less on the ideologies of the kingdoms.
Following this, the ideologies among the gods will be more and more prominent as well.
Also, the names of the knights have increased too.
Here, let me help everyone review the names of the Twelve Holy Knights that have already made an appearance.
“Good, warm-hearted faction”:
Elmairy Leaf: Strawberry
Chikus Blaze: Freakus
Ceo Storm: He has for now (in this volume) escaped the horror of getting a nickname. Just how does Sun address Storm? Everyone can try guessing!
“Cruel, cold-hearted faction”:
Lesus Judgment: He’s someone whom even Sun is afraid to give a random nickname to.
Roland Hell: Luckily, he’s someone whom Sun became acquainted with before Sun started randomly giving nicknames.
Ecilan Ice: Wastelan
Laica Metal: Slime
I’ll take this moment to hope that everyone has good memory. (The author silently sticks the names of the Twelve Holy Knights beside her monitor.)
By the way, this volume mostly reveals the true fact that holy knights… unless there’s something wrong with their heads, these knights will not go and slay a dragon for no reason. What a poor dragon! It gets attacked even when it’s just lying there! (After the author finished writing, this was the OS2 in her heart.)
Next, the main point! This volume contains a special project. I believe that everyone must have flipped through it even before reading this epilogue. That’s right, I’m talking about the designs of the Twelve Holy Knights! 3
Finally, the appearances of the Twelve Holy Knights have been revealed. I wonder, what does everyone think of them? Who do you like the most?
We also have a series of short manhua.4 I, Yu Wo, wrote the scripts. When I wrote them, I pretty much considered them as things that actually happened, so everyone can treat them like side stories.
At the time of the writing of this epilogue, I have yet to see the manhua , so I’m also waiting with excitement, hehe! So excited!
By the way, if I have the opportunity in the future, I will post up the original manuscripts for the manhua.

(Here’s the special project that was included at the front of the book)
The leader of the Twelve Holy Knights and the “good, warm-hearted” faction. He possesses a dazzling smile, a perfect personality, and a benevolent heart that always forgives others.
Real personality: The direct opposite of the above description.
One of the Twelve Holy Knights and a member of the “good, warm-hearted” faction. He is a footloose charmer who enjoys freedom, and he always has women by his side.
Real personality: A workaholic, the type that will eventually work himself to death.

One of the Twelve Holy Knights and a member of the “good, warm-hearted” faction. His personality can be summed up in three words: a good guy.
Real personality: Still a good guy.
One of the Twelve Holy Knights and a member of the “good, warm-hearted” faction. He is brash, straightforward, and looks up to the Sun Knight.
Real personality: Exactly the same as he appears and just as brash.
One of the holy knights of the “good, warm-hearted” faction. He is a drifter, with qualities much like that of a drifting cloud. The easiest place to find him is by the window-side, on top of a roof, or under a banyan tree. Often he drinks or reads alone in such places.
Real personality: A shut-in.
One of the Twelve Holy Knights and the boss of the “cruel, cold-hearted” faction. He is serious, cold, and never forgives criminals.
Real personality: Your next door older brother who is very good at taking care of others.

One of the Twelve Holy Knights of the “cruel, cold-hearted” faction. He is very vain, haughty, and does not easily let others close. It always seems like he is looking down on others.
Real personality: His girlfriend is his entire world, and his life goal is to have a relationship.
One of the Twelve Holy Knights who belongs to the “cruel, cold-hearted” faction. He is known for his stubbornness which is said to be as tough as a rock. It is said that cracking his skull is easy, but to crack his stubbornness, you might as well go and overthrow the Church of the God of Light instead, as that would be easier.
Real personality: Very easy to get along with, and he even gets along with dogs.
One of the Twelve Holy Knights of the “cruel, cold-hearted” faction and the only one said to have been put in the “cruel, cold-hearted” faction yet doesn’t listen to the orders of the Judgment Knight but instead listens to the Sun Knight. He specifically takes care of missions behind-the-scenes, and some even say that he is the designated assassin of the Twelve Holy Knights. Some rumors also say that during the 1st generation of the Twelve Holy Knights, Hell Knight was not even an actual person. Rather, he was the identity the Sun Knight took on to complete secret missions.
Real personality: A practical person who rigidly follows the way of a knight
He is famous for his poisonous tongue, and his words are said to be poisonous enough to anger people to death. It is said that talking with him for ten minutes can anger you so much that your life would get shortened by a year.
Real personality: An avid fan of the Judgment Knight
1 “delete and retrain”: This refers to deleting a character from online games and retraining the character from scratch.
2 “OS”: Oral soliloquy, or internal monologue.
3 The designs of the Twelve Holy Knights are included in full color at the beginning of volume 4. We have included them here as well.
4 Volumes 4, 5, and 6 come bundled with short manhua drawn by Ya Sha. The stories included are: For You All, Truth in Disguise, Facing the Darkness, two pages about Stone visiting the Kingdom of Moon Orchid in his usual outfit, and eight pages about how Ecilan became the Ice Knight. A few of the side stories PR! has released were the script versions that Yu Wo gave to the artist to use in the manhua. Yu Wo eventually posted the manuscripts in her blog, and that’s what we translated from.
5 Don’t ask us why only Lesus is listed as Lesus Judgment instead of Judgment Knight in the original text. We have no idea why either.
