Prologue: The Divine Sword that has Lost its Owner – translated by Azakura

“Knight-Captain Judgment!”

Lesus stopped in his tracks and turned his head. Behind him stood someone whose skin-tight black leotard made it practically impossible for anyone to not recognize him. In the entire Holy Temple, only the Hell Knight would have such a unique way of dressing. However, the person who should have been with Roland Hell was currently not with him.

Lesus wrinkled his brow. He asked, “Knight-Captain Hell, weren’t you supposed to be following after Knight-Captain Sun?”

At these words, a look of shame immediately spread over Roland’s face.

“You’ve lost his trail again?”

Lesus couldn’t help feeling a little amused and mirthful. It seemed that ever since he had assigned Knight-Captain Hell to tail Sun, he had yet to see them walk alongside each other even once. But still, after a moment of thought, he couldn’t find it in his heart to blame Hell, because even he wasn’t certain he wouldn’t be shaken off whenever Sun intended to run away.

“Forget it. You don’t have to follow him anymore.” He shook his head, having finally thought things through. He sighed, “I should have realized long before. It’s not like we can have someone follow Sun forever.”

Having heard this, Roland couldn’t help but worry instead. “But Sun can no longer see with his eyes… If he were to meet with danger, what would we do then?”

“If he can even throw you off, I don’t think there’s any problem.”

“I suppose that’s true.” Roland couldn’t help but acknowledge this fact, but afterward, he sighed, “I just can’t understand why Sun can escape from my pursuit. His strength has never been that great…”

Lesus smiled faintly as he spoke, “If that’s what you actually think, then I’m afraid you are greatly looking down on our Knight-Captain Sun.”

“But isn’t his swordsmanship terrible?” Roland asked, slightly puzzled.

“Sun’s swordsmanship is indeed terrible,” Lesus had no choice but to admit.

As a matter of fact, speaking of his swordsmanship in this way was quite courteous already. To have been taught by “the Strongest Sun Knight in History” for eight years, yet have his skill with the sword remain at a standard too tragic to even look at, the word “terrible” would certainly not be enough to fully express this.

“Although it is true that Sun’s swordsmanship is terrible,” Lesus said insipidly, “if you were to ask me who in this world I wish least to go against, my answer would definitely be Knight-Captain Sun.”

Even more confused, Roland said hesitantly, “But Grisia, he’s…”

“Knight-Captain Judgment!”

Lesus and Roland were both startled. It didn’t matter to the latter, but the former’s face promptly darkened and switched to a frown, displaying the Judgment Knight’s renowned “I’m in a bad mood even when no one is causing me trouble” expression.

However, the person who had come was a member of the Judgment Knight Platoon. This made Lesus frown not only on the surface, but also on the inside.

Judgment knew the members of his platoon all too well. Their pattern of behavior greatly resembled his own: always calm, disciplined, and strict. Now, a member of his platoon was actually running toward him frantically—obviously, something had gone wrong.

The Judgment Knight Platoon member gasped for air twice. Afterward, he immediately saluted, “Captain Judgment, Knight-Captain Hell.”

“What is the matter?” Lesus asked with his brows furrowed.

“There was a huge explosion nearby due to causes unknown. No deaths or injuries were reported, but the clerics said that a very strong dark element has aggregated there. It’s possible that a necromancer cast a spell there.”

Upon hearing this, Lesus’ expression darkened. Just which necromancer actually had the guts to do such a thing in Leaf Bud City, the region under the jurisdiction of the God of Light?

Whoever he is, it is completely unforgivable that he is causing disturbances in my city!

Lesus’ expression darkened further as he gave orders in a low voice, “Assemble all members of the Judgment Knight Platoon. Hell, you’re coming along as well.”

“Understood.”

When he arrived at the scene, Lesus immediately understood why his platoon member had been so distressed.

To think that the explosion actually left a hole in the ground about ten meters in diameter…

Not to mention the rubble from toppled buildings nearby, the scorched floor, and the bits of rocks scattered about the entire area… Thankfully, this area is an old execution ground so few people come here. If the explosion had happened in the bustling city plaza, the results would be simply unthinkable.

“Judgment Knight, Hell Knight…”

The clerics at the scene were about to salute, but Lesus promptly raised his hand to stop them. Straightaway, he ordered, “Report the current situation.”

“Yes.”

The clerics revealed worried expressions as they started their reports. “Other than discovering the presence of the dark element, the area also seems to have a great amount of the holy element. We fear that someone from the Church might have gotten into a battle with a necromancer, so we are currently searching the vicinity for…for…”

For a dead body.

Before they had even finished their sentence, Lesus had already grasped the situation. By the look of things, the battle was likely to have been very intense. If that someone from the Church of the God of Light had won, then that person would have long since reported back to the Church. Even if his injuries were so severe that he couldn’t walk back to the Church and fainted halfway, he should have at least been found by one of the patrolling holy knights or royal knights.

However, so far, no one has heard of any such news.

So now the only possibility left is that that person was either taken away by the necromancer or is already dead. If so, it’s very likely that he’s buried underneath these collapsed buildings.

Lesus frowned as he examined the surrounding collapsed buildings. Although the number of buildings here were not as great as in the inner city, there were still about ten buildings. They would probably not be able to finish cleaning up the mess in a short amount of time. This also made him hesitant on what to do. Should I lead my men to search for the necromancer first, or do I continue waiting here, to check if the person being excavated is still alive and ask him for the truth instead?

At this moment, Roland walked over to Lesus. He pointed beneath the collapsed buildings further in the distance and said, “Knight-Captain Judgment, there is a strong presence of holy element in that area.”

“Holy element?”

Hearing these words, Lesus creased his brow. Even if he’s a holy knight or a cleric, after death, the dark element would still corrode him. But since Hell said that he sensed holy element there… Could that person still be alive?

He immediately gave orders to everyone in the search party. “Go to the area pointed out by Knight-Captain Hell at once. Be careful, there may be a person beneath there, and he may still be alive!”

“Understood!”

Every holy knight immediately started moving rocks aside. With the ample strength of the knights and their quick excavation speed, it did not take long for them to clean out more than half of the collapsed buildings. There were already knights carefully using shovels to dig into the ground as well.

“Roland!”

Roland was surprised for a moment. He turned his head to see a row of knights wearing the vermilion uniform of the royal knights. The one at the very front was the most familiar. That one was Elijah, who often asked Roland to spar with him.

Elijah commanded the royal knights to stop. He walked forward to Roland by himself. While looking at the huge hole in the ground in front of him, he frowned as he asked Roland, “What on earth happened here?”

Roland shook his head. He explained, “We are also unsure of what exactly happened, but what we do know is that there is a large amount of dark element and holy element congregated in the area.”

As Elijah wrinkled his brow, pondering over what Roland had said, Judgment Knight Lesus, who happened to be beside them, began to speak. “Knight Elijah, could you perhaps request for your men to help dig as well? We suspect that there is either a cleric or a holy knight underneath the buildings and that he is likely to still be alive.”

Elijah was surprised for a moment, but he immediately replied in agreement, “Of course.”

He turned around, gesturing for the knights under his command to come forward and help out.

Lesus wrinkled his brow while watching the excavation. Come to think of it, I don’t seem to be able to help out here for now. Maybe I should go back to search for the whereabouts of the necromancer if he’s still nearby… But suddenly it came to him that finding the necromancer did not fall under the duties he was responsible for.

He turned around and asked his vice-captain, “Did anyone send a notification to Knight-Captain Sun?”

His vice-captain immediately replied, “Captain, I cannot locate Knight-Captain Sun, but I have already notified Vice-Captain Adair of the Sun Knight Platoon. He said that he would immediately arrange for the Sun Knight Platoon to split up and search the city. If there is any unusual gathering of the dark element, he will immediately bring people there to investigate.”

Upon hearing this, Lesus nodded his head. It’s good as long as Adair was notified. But where has Sun run off to again?

“Oh right, hasn’t Knight-Captain Sun come?” Elijah opened his mouth and asked.

“Elijah, by any chance did you see Sun on your way here?” Roland turned and asked as well.

Their eyes met, and they laughed heartily before shaking their heads in unison.

Upon witnessing this, Judgment smiled inwardly as well.

It seems that it’s always been like this, ever since long ago. Despite his terrible swordsmanship, Grisia is somehow always acquainted with people who are greatly skilled with the sword… No! It’s not just those who are master swordsmen. Perhaps he has already become acquainted with every single strong person in Leaf Bud City?

Of course, we have the Twelve Holy Knights of the Church of the God of Light, and one of them is even a death lord. Then we have the princess’ beloved royal knight lover, and even the proclaimed ‘the Strongest Sun Knight in History’ who is revered by many, not to mention a necromancer who’s likely incredibly strong but whose name is not well known.

Also, other than knowing all of the strong people out there, is Grisia really as weak as the Hell Knight assumes he is?

After pondering up to this point, Lesus was truly a little flustered. Perhaps only the Pope, the former Sun Knight, and I know just how strong a person Grisia Sun actually is… No! Perhaps even I don’t truly understand his strength.

Lesus could not help but mutter, “Grisia, you always say that I’m like a tapeworm living in your stomach since you can never hide anything from me, but I’ve never really completely understood what you’re capable of… Or maybe it’d be better to say that even you don’t understand your true capabilities?”

Roland and Elijah seemed to have heard some of Lesus’ murmurs. The two of them turned to ask curiously, “What did…”

“We’ve found it!”

Hearing the shouts of the holy knights, the spirits of the three lifted immediately and they moved forward in unison. They soon saw many people crowding around the hole to behold what was inside. Yet, no injured person was being lifted out. The three of them had a very uniform reaction—a frown appeared on each of their faces at the same time.

Lesus was the first one to lower his tone as he spoke ominously, “What are you clerics doing? Shouldn’t you be quicker in helping that person?”

The clerics received a huge fright from this. After seeing Judgment Knight’s cold expression, their faces paled even more. They explained frantically, “It… It’s not a person!”

Upon hearing this, Lesus creased his brow once again. He simply walked forward to see for himself just what it was. Indeed, what was in the hole was not a person, but rather a sword that was just quietly lying amongst the dust. Given what it actually was, it really should not have to suffer such treatment.

“Why is the Divine Sun Sword here?”

Lesus recognized at one glance that it was the Divine Sun Sword lying at the bottom of the hole. This is Grisia’s most treasured possession… although he doesn’t use it too often.

He actually rarely brings his sword out of the Holy Temple, but when he does, it never leaves his side.

But right now, the Divine Sun Sword is here, yet its master is not present… Suddenly, Lesus noticed that the sword was stained with something… He immediately jumped into the hole and picked up the sword to see.

It really is a bloodstain!

His face changed almost immediately. He hurriedly shouted at the knights around the area, “Quickly! Continue digging! But be careful while doing so. Sun– Whoever’s underneath might still be alive!”

At this moment, Roland also jumped down. He knelt down to touch the ground with his hand; his eyes never left the Divine Sun Sword that Lesus was holding.

Following this, he stood up and spoke in a low voice to Lesus, “There isn’t any more holy element underneath here. I’m sure the holy element that I had felt before was from the Divine Sun Sword… C-Could it be that Grisia… he…”

“No!”

Lesus adamantly interrupted Roland’s speech. He leaped back to the surface, allowing the holy knights to continue digging. At the same time, Roland followed suit.

In examination, Lesus circled the old execution ground that was in ruins. He then firmly proclaimed, “Impossible! Such a place… would definitely not be the place where Sun is buried!”

In that case…

Grisia, just where the heck are you?

    And the plot thickens O.o Love the facebook updates btw. Saves me checking daily :D

    Lol Lesus really did order Roland to follow Grisa all over the place. Lot of good that did though. Seems Grisa may have picked up a few tricks from Cloud. And now Grisa has disappeared how fun.

    • Alyss

      @Gohankuten
      Grisa wouldn’t NEED to pick up tricks from Cloud to get away from Roland…poor Roland XD

    • Gohankuten

      @Alyss
      True but I wouldn’t be surprised if he still did pick up a few tricks from Cloud lol.

    • Tamult

      @Gohankuten
      Considering his power, I doubt he needed to actually see him anymore.

    • Immasweetslovinggirl

      @Tamult
      I second this notion though it would still be fun if he did…

    • Grisia ability is to copy spell…. cloud’s trick is not really spell… I don’t think… Grisia mentioned before that cloud’s ability come from his foot work. And if it is not something Grisia can see, I don’t think he can copy it since cloud always appear and disappear suddenly.

  3. Can’t wait to see what happens next xD
    thx for the chapter

  4. ~Ren The Witch~

    Sweet Lesus, worried for his best friend ;^;… more over, he has no idea of the weird situation Grisia is actually in… >.< !

  5. Grisia gone missing, a necromancer involved … has Pink decided she’s ready for her apprentice NOW? :O

    • Lisabella

      @Silvanon
      But might it also be possible that she cancels her apprenticeship because he fought her?

    • I don’t she would cancel the agreement over a little quarrel since sun is would be best apprentice a necromancer or a mage could ask for (as long as it doesn’t have swordsmanship involve). I more likely to believe pink came here for revenge after sun destroy her previous body. So innocent building are destroyed as they are having their little fight.

  6. As curious and worried as I might be about what happened there, I can’t help but think it’s somehow completely Sun’s fault.

    • Gohankuten

      @beta
      Of course it is Sun’s fault. Probably what happened was Sun was practicing Necromancy and it got out of hand and backfired or something and he fled so as not to incriminate himself. That or Pink has come for him to make him her apprentice now and got lucky and was able to incapacitate him.

    • MNeilG

      @Gohankuten
      i disagree about sun fleeing willingly. he knows perfectly well that not only the entire church of light would go look for him but also his teacher, the HISTORY’S STRONGEST SUN KNIGHT would be after him too.

    • Lisabella

      @MNeilG
      That and he is scared to death about his teacher because of the ‘training methods.’

    • starnorma

      @Gohankuten
      lol as soon as i read the part about holy and dark element Sun practicing necromancy was my immediate
      thought

  7. Nice chapter!!!
    I’m really looking forward to the next chapter ♡♡
    thank you for your hard work~

  8. O.O Sun! Where are you?? You better not be dead; Neo will kill you a thousand times over for dying in an ungraceful manner!

    • lizbeth

      @Azyvli
      haha you’re right! i think that’s what Lesus meant when he said Grisia wouldn’t die at such a place :))

    • Gohankuten

      @lizbeth
      Grisa can’t be killed period. He is a freaking immortal cockroach so you know he can’t die period.

    • Crysis

      @Gohankuten
      ROFL! So true. So true.

    • Immasweetslovinggirl

      @Crysis
      It is true…wait…cockroaches can die if you spray them with bug spray…To Grisa wouldn’t sweets be his power and bug spray? OMG WHAT IS THE ENEMY LURED HIM THERE WITH SWEETS AND THEN THEY LIKE PUT SLEEPING PILLS IN THERE AND THEY KIDNAPPED HIM?! GRISA!

  9. OMG D: SUN!! where are you? ;o;

  10. hmm….considering its an old execution ground where few people would gather and the holy sword is out of the temple….My guess is that someone dangerous called Sun out and he went to take on the person himself because he didnt want to risk harming anyone…
    though why wouldnt he bring along reinforcments….Well if it was pink she certainly has enough to blackmail him to death…Or it could be awaitsun and some of the dark knights…though those nutters stand out like a roland among hell knights so that cant be it…
    So im guessing that it was pink somehow and that sun went to meet her with the sword in tow for security, that he got into a battle of magical wits with her and..
    huh….no matter how i consider this i cant figure a way pink could have actually defeated sun though…unless she snuck up on him anyways but he wouldnt go out with his sword normally and he wouldnt be wandering around execution grounds…
    another possability is that she had some help but whatever it was would need to be dark elemental too…
    Well, unlesss pink somehow found out about his blindness and worked out something that doesnt contain any elementalyness which he wouldnt see at all…
    darn, im guessing we shall just have to wait until the next chapter for more information XD specially since theres even the small possability that both the light and dark auras were caused by sun and that an entirly different second party is involved

  11. rosedemon98

    Maybe Pink’s the necromancer and Sun was fighting with her ’cause her destroyed her other body and is now making him look for a new one? Or they got into a fight and have now struck a deal that says that sun has to help Pink find a new body? Thats all my theories, thought I might be wrong… Anyway thanks for the new chapter~ ^w^

  12. Anonymous

    Significant curiosity… I wish I knew whether Sun remembered to retrieve his sword back when he threw it through Pink… *goes back to reread and look for hints/overlooked things*

  13. Jackass

    shouldnt everyone be calling Roland Supreme Dragon hell not Roland hell cause of how Griesa introduced him in front of everyone at the melee

    • @Jackass
      Precisely what I was wondering too. Was that intentional to hint that everyone now knows that Roland is hell knight, or did Yu Wo just made a mistake here? xD

    • Jackass

      @H. Y.
      or it could be translation thing

    • lucathia

      @Jackass
      I believe only Lesus thinks of him as “Roland Hell” here (this is in Lesus’ POV) while others call him Hell Knight or Knight-Captain Hell. The knights have acknowledged him and are now using his actual title.

    • Jackass

      @lucathia
      Elijah called him Roland didn’t he

    • MoonlightFlower

      @Jackass
      Because He’s the ex-Hell Knight, thus one of the twelve holy knight and he along with the twelve holy knight know.

      The twelve holy knight have secret meeting, remember? ( from book 1 )

    • Jackass

      @MoonlightFlower
      the only ones who know that Elijah is the true hell knight were sun and judgement noone else had even seen the hell knight since he was sent to spy on the royals and roland appeared as the hell knight, and remember how sun said in the 3rd book how he used to mistake the vice captain of the hell platoon for the hell knight. he could have been at the meeting of the 12. and didnt sun mention to elijah that the undead who attacked the pig-king was roland, and wouldnt he recognise the name and consider it too much of a coincidence that the placebo-hell knight had the same name, even if elijah was too stupid to make the connection, Roland would be careful about revealing his true name especialy since he was introduced in front of the whole kingdom as supreme dragon hell. so while i get judgement calling him roland in his mind (which would seem out of character from him anyway since he is so serieus) i dont get why Elijah would blurt his name out which would also seem rude to even call him supreame dragon as he sould have called him hell knight. this make any sense to you cause i might have deviated from the original thought :P

    • lucija

      @Jackass
      i totaly agree with you about mystery why does Elijah know Ronald and calls him open in front of royal knights.

    • actually, I think whoever the new knights will take on the last name of the knight title. Which mean Roland’s name now become Roland Hell. In which case, everyone know his name, just not his last name. To show respect though, people below the rank of captain call him knight-captain Hell. In which case, people who are same/higher ranking can call him by his name legitimately. Elija is now the princess’ hubby, his rank is at least equal in term of influences.

      About how Roland name changed or how no one question his identity despite the obvious contradictions, like Grisia once said, if he and judgement decided to call apple as tomato, then the whole kingdom would call it tomato.

    • theresay

      @Jackass
      I think it was a translation mistake, I remember Elijah did call him “Tai Lon (Supreme Dragon)”, can’t be sure though, I can’t find my book :(

    • It’s not a translation mistake, probably a typo by Yu Wo…But no surprise that Elijah knows Roland, didn’t Roland used to be a royal knight?

    • Jackass

      @dahlys
      and now he is a death lord the “embodiment of pure evil” who everyone “knows” has been dealt with by the sun knight

    • probably a loop hole from the author side.
      She probably decided to keep the name since it would be too confusing to give Roland new name.
      And like Grisia said, if he decided to call potatoes as tomatoes, who would go against him? :P

    • Jackass

      @Jackass
      i want to reply to angel’s 2 replies roland was introduced to the whole country as Supreme Dragon Hell not Roland Hell and the potatoes to tomatoes thing that just means that noone will question them or dig deeper into hell knights past if your gonna use his real name then at least mention when nd how he found out his real name

  14. Sun, where have you gone now? D: I sure hope he is alright… I know it’s Sun we are talking about but still, this kind of event worries me. :s And how Lesus is worried about Sun is just too sweet.~ So you better get up and go look for him Lesus! And bring him back in one piece.

  15. ahihi!!!!! Thanks for the chapter.
    It sure is nice when you are acquainted with the strongest… I wonder what happens when the strongest are worried about Sun.

  16. NeoWarrior

    The situations in this story are never what they appear… Sun was practicing his skills with Holy and Necromatic magic and got the “amazing” idea to holify necromatic magic so that he can use it without it appearing to be necromancy. The result was an incompatible explosion that buried his blade, on which he centered the magic energy. Sun got blown away!
    He is either uncounscious in the vicinity or being healed by Pink.

  17. starwarrior

    Sun look what you did. Lesus is worried sick because whatever plan you are cooking up

  18. “Despite his terrible swordsmanship, Grisia is somehow always acquainted with people who are greatly skilled with the sword…”
    Haha! Remember when Neo said the same thing?

  19. dollyfishe

    is it just like the previous chapter that this story will only be clear after a few next chapter?

    oh no … i read a spoiler :p

  20. o.o” Dear God of Light! Just how powerful is the person (?) who used dark magic?! Kidnapping Sun is no easy feat! (And he’s going to make life hell for his kidnappers too… Do they know what they’re up against?)

    And is that execution ground the same execution ground from book one? The place where Roland’s body had been disposed of?

  21. kuwaneko

    oh god, this chapter.
    We get to see a bit from Judgment’s perspective

    ‘the Judgment Knight’s renowned “I’m in a bad mood even when no one is causing me trouble” expression.’
    I couldn’t help but laugh at this. poor Lesus.

    the ending to this chapter is rather sad though. I don’t think it’s my imagination, but to me Lesus’s sentence seems to have a touch of desperation in it

  22. blargin7

    Of course Sun wouldn’t be burried in an execution ground. Grisia thinks it himself all the time, if he were to die in such a place his master would revive him and kill him in a more graceful area.

  23. holyDemonic

    What if the holy element didn’t come from sun? And the dark wasn’t from a necromancer? Couldn’t it have just been a certain former sun knight’s holy element and a dark elf’s dark element? Maybe those two teamed up to “suprise” Sun with a visit. And then taking him with them…
    Or maybe Sun just forgot his sword on a mission to drink booxe without being caught? I can just see Sun relaxing at a bar while the chaos is going on elswhere.
    Anyway… thanks for the chapter! XD

    • @holyDemonic
      I think the chapter sounded too serious for it to all turn out to be a joke. Grisia wouldn’t allow Knight-Captain Judgement to worry like that for a simple reason, like going out to drink. His teacher would know the importance of the Divine Sun Sword as well, and would NEVER let Grisia leave it behind.

      XD And this would be a short book if it was all resolved by the next chapter.

  24. [email protected]@lker

    That was a swift delivery of a new Prologue :) Looking forward to the Rest.

  25. fantastic intro. I have a few questions: How did Elijah know that hell knight is Roland and why did him call Roland in front of his people( royal knight)? Wouldnt they know that Roland is a death lord and thus he is not dead? And wouldnt also all other people on the scene question if Roland isnt aa death knight? And wouldnt Elijah, princess lover tell her that hell knight is in true a death knight and therefor wouldnt also princess tell this to her brother,king ( this would make Sun a more dangerous enemy and king would never let him be free ) ? Please, can somebody answer this questions.

    • Achipersus

      @lucija
      hm. He might have talked to Roland long enough and Sun even mentioned Roland to him once and if he’s a bit like Lesus he might have discerned it from his swordmanship. I can imagine Roland telling him that he’s Roland but calling him Roland doesn’t mean Elijah knows that Roland is a Death Lord. All ppl know Roland died except for Lesus and there are many ppl called Roland arround… Remember he got still the ring that turns him into a human and who’s to say if ppl feel the dark aura from him and even then he might excuse it by saying it is needed for his missions like the Ice Knight got ice element in him?
      So if Roland simply said Supreme Dragon is an alias he had and he’s called Roland ppl would call him Roland and still not consider him a Death Lord. So it’s useless to deduce that Elijah might have told the princess that the new Hell Knight is called Roland but I doubt anyone suspects that a Death Lord plays a holy knight without the church noticing Oo

    • lucija

      @Achipersus
      thank you for your answer

  26. I have an idea of what’s happening…

    But then again I’ve always been a sucker for soap opera cliche type things, so who knows?

    HINT:-> поглянути на роман Синопсис

    • @Crysis

      Read the synopsis, but it doesn’t say much about what happen! I did read what the next chapter’s title is and wonder if Grisia is going somewhere on an adventure again. My opinion on this chapter is that Grisia might be trying to use necromancy to heal his blindness but get suck up in some dark realm/plane instead and appear somewhere else.

  27. I hope it was that Pink wanted her apprentice now as Silvanon said. That would be so cool. I wonder what the “new” Pink will look like?
    Btw, thanks for the chapter

    • KnightlyLoyal

      @Listening Daisy
      She’ll either be slightly older (13 or so physically) or she’ll be using a knock-out level babe as a body since Sun said he was getting tired of a little girl >.> Or she decided to look like an old woman (doubtful of that)

  28. Kittychan H

    Ohhh, I suspected Sun was involved when they said there was holy element too….(of course the chapter title gives it away also.)
    Hopefully he’s OK cause everyone is worried now.

  29. Baka Weiss

    Not really a hint, but you guys are going to love the Sun of this volume. *spoiler removed =P*

    • starnorma

      @Baka Weiss
      after reading your comment im now expecting sun to be a) completely in vengeful mode, b) completely in the “The gracious Sun Knight doth all that is good and followeth the ways of the merciful, forgiving, and glorious god of light” mode, or c) an amnesiac who has no idea who he is, but knows how to use his ridiculous amounts of power. or d) something way way better

    • starnorma

      @starnorma
      i cant believe i actually managed to come so close on guessing what was going to happen! XD

  30. escapedd

    I wonder if the situation might also have something to do with Tranquility jewel thing Sun is holding on to. Neo did say that powerful mages would come looking for it…

  31. Maybe Sun was kidnapped by a dragon

  32. babezilla

    Thank you for your hard work! I think I would be really depressed these days locked in the house and having to learn for the exams if not for your releases.

  33. Oh, my… Things are about to get interesting. (Not that they weren’t before, they’re just about to get EVEN MORE interesting… well, you got it). I don’t have any theories, except, maybe a feeling…
    Sun must be fine. I mean, fine enough to do go somewhere weird willingly, but not so fine that our worries are undue. For example, maybe someone appeared, said something that made Sun worry, and Sun accompanied that person to check whatever troublesome situation needed checking. The fight… well, unexpected messengers often exchange a few blows with the receivers of the messages before convincing those receivers that they just want talk.
    Anyway, thanks for the chapter!

  34. Is Sun going to be ok?!
    Well, it was nice to see a point of veiw from Lesus.
    I think Sun and the “new” Pink met.
    Thank You for this chapter!!! =D

    I have a question about the translation. On other sites, and in the manhua, Sun’s name has been translated as “Creus”, wheras, you use “Grisia”. Why is that?
    Anyway, thanks for the new chapter!

      In a post from Yu Wo’s blog (and her forums), she posted answers to a reader’s question about what the English names of the characters are. She gave “Grisia” for Sun, so that’s what PR! used.

  36. My theory was that Sun sensed Pink returning and went to fight her alone. However, judging by the title, Pink had a dragon with her or maybe her new body is a Dragon O.O? They kidnapped Sun then.

  37. Thank you for the prologue!

  38. Maybe the one who called sun outside is pink and since she is so dangerous he brought his sword.

  39. lol. did you guys thought of it like this..

    SUN was the one who casted the dark element magic. reason would be cause LESUS ask ROLAND to tail (stalk) SUN 24/7. . . poor SUN cant take it anymore being stalk by DEAD MALE.

    (I wanted to cry but no tears came out. I pleaded, “Nooo! If you do that, then Roland will follow me around all day. He doesn’t even need to sleep, go to the toilet, or eat… Dear God of Light! I really don’t want to be stalked by a man all day! I would definitely go crazy!”)

    i guess SUN did go crazy thingking up a plan like that then i guess SUN going to another adventure that would lead to slaying a dragon.. then when he gets back to the church judgement got mad at sun(Shared Rule #4: “Logically, You Should Never Ruffle the Feathers of the Sun Knight, but in Reality, it is Better to Ruffle the Sun Knight’s Feathers than to Ruffle the Judgment Knight’s Feathers”) poor SUN. i wonder how would judgment gonna punish sun cause of that…..

  40. I think the adventurer team will be created by Judgement knight and we’ll get to see more sides of the cruel cold hearted faction. You know, to dispense Justice on those who dare take away sun (maybe a dragon kidnapped Sun along the lines of wanting a successor of some sort like all the rest seem to.) I hope it’s unpredictable!

      For some very odd reason, Grisia Sun seems to be a very popular person with the people trying to apprentice him. The Pope, Sun Knight no. 37 (he was successful, but seems like the previous Sun Knight is pretty unhappy about that), Pink…And all of them are powerful “people”. Does Pink count as a person, or a lich? I really hope it’s a dragon, but I doubt that. Can dragons speak?
      I’m very sorry for asking random questions throughout the post OTZ ^^

  41. So many questions and no answers to speak of yet! I wonder whose blood is on the Divine Sun Sword and whether Grisia was alone or actually fought someone. Can’t wait to read more!
