The Legend of Sun Knight Volume 8: Ending the Demon King, Part Two
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Epilogue: Character Introductions and Special Project (End) – translated by lucathia
Michel: One of the unfortunate adventurers who accepted the Demon King. Also the leader of the adventurer team.
Taylen: The second of the unfortunate adventurers who accepted the Demon King. Furthermore, a super unfortunate guy whom the Demon King selected as the first hero. Other than that, he also seems to hold some secrets.
Charlotte: The third of the unfortunate adventurers who accepted the Demon King. In addition, since she has the same name as the demon king candidate from before, she has somewhat caused the Demon King to shift his feelings to her. In the end, she seems to be a little interested in the Demon King, too.
Jasmine: The princess of the Kingdom of Forgotten Sound. Elijah’s betrothed.
I remember seeing a movie in the past. Basically, the movie was about the male lead saving his younger sister, who got caught on a snowy mountain. He formed a team to foray into the mountains, but on the way, accidents kept happening, and the team members died one after another…
At the time, I was quite young. As I watched, I felt that the male protagonist was really stupid. For the sake of saving one person, a bunch of people ended up dying. It was not worth it at all!
But as I grew older, I started to understand that you can’t assign a worth to this kind of thing, because there’s absolutely no way you can watch a loved one turn into a cold corpse right before your eyes.
Saving her might end in regret, but if you don’t save her, you would regret it from the start.
The feelings the Twelve Holy Knights hold for each other are much the same. They are unable to watch any one of them walk toward destruction right before their eyes. Even if dragging him back would result in perishing together, they would still not be able to let him fall into the abyss.
In short, this series is a story about being unable to place righteousness before family. It is full of bonds and fetters between companions, but these bonds don’t stop at the Twelve Holy Knights. They extend endlessly onwards, from the previous Twelve Holy Knights, to the current Twelve Holy Knights, the current vice-captains, and finally, to the next generation of Twelve Holy Knights…
Between people, even with endless words, they still cannot say clearly whether it was coincidence, fate or destiny. In the end, Grisia merely smiled and said, “You have a brilliant smile,” completely following in the footsteps of his teacher, who answered “because of your brilliant blond hair.”
The final ending details the selection of the next generation of young knights, but this is actually a beginning. Every generation of the Twelve Holy Knights has a story, a legend.
The ending of the previous generation is the beginning of the next generation. This never-ending legend is exactly the God of Light’s biggest miracle.
In fact, reality is much the same. From the parent to the child, and then the child has another child. Every person endlessly continues onward. Each and every one of us has our own paths in life, and the tracks we leave are all stories, all legends.
We are the Twelve Holy Knights.
Some people are like the workaholic Storm. Some people are like Earth, pretending to be prey, when they’re really predators. Some people might want to hide like Cloud…
And then you might meet someone cold on the outside but warm on the inside like Judgment, or someone who says one thing but means another, like Metal, or someone kind but who secretly hammers straw dolls like Leaf…
You might not meet twelve of them, or there might even be hundreds and thousands, or strangers might come together by chance, or join hands and experience life together, or keep company until old age, until finally, you see each other off.
Everyone has their own path to follow. The Legend of Sun Knight detailed one such path, one that crossed with each and every reader. Although all good things must come to an end over the course of one’s life, they will leave everlasting memories.
As an author, my biggest wish is for my works to accompany everyone in a part of their lives, leaving a memory never to be forgotten. I hope this child, The Legend of Sun Knight, has been able to accomplish that.
The paths in one’s life will intersect. This is the most beautiful painting the world has to offer—the best legend.
There have always been miracles. We are the miracle.

Special Project: The Legend of Sun Knight Question Dump
Because this is the final volume, I let everyone ask questions in my blog, and now I will include the questions and answers in volume 8’s epilogue.
However, I obviously can’t include all of them, so I picked some to answer. If I did not answer yours, please don’t be sad. If you enjoy this kind of question and answer corner, you’ll have another chance with No Hero! Try, try again!
Q1: When will The Legend of Sun Knight volume 8 be released?
A: Right now.
Q2: Will The Legend of Sun Knight have spin-offs?
A: Yes. There will be spin-offs (stories that you won’t understand unless you have read The Legend of Sun Knight) and related stories (stories that can stand alone), those being Searching for Roland and Female Warrior.
Q3: Who is the author’s favorite character?
A: The triple-awesome guy with awesome strength, an awesome personality, and an awesome figure: Knight-Captain Judgment. (The guy with terrible strength, a terrible personality, and a figure that’s not worth looking at, Knight-Captain Sun, can stop glaring at me please.)
Q4: The Legend of Sun Knight has ended. What is the side benefit that the author will miss the most?
A: The days where I get to savor readers’ thoughts from discussion posts that I open for readers to leave their opinions after reading.
Q5: If Sun didn’t become the Sun Knight, what would he have become?
A: Of course he would be a necromancer-in-training -> necromancer -> demon king candidate -> demon king OR corpse, in that order!
Q6: What kind of flour does Sun use in his facial masks?
A: Gluten-free flour from the plains of Skartalax. PS: Our world does not produce this kind of flour.
Q7: I want to know Roland’s past and future!
A: Please refer to Searching for Roland. This is merely a question and answer… But I can tell you his three sizes are 109, 78, 96 (unit: cm). How’s that for an answer?
Q8: Where did the name The Legend of Sun Knight come from?
A: The brain of the author filled with unidentified substances from another dimension.
Q9: Is Aldrizzt a virgin?
A: If he is, what do you plan on doing?
Q10: How does Judgment regard Sun?
A: Admiration. He really admires both his ability to solve matters and his ability to cause trouble.
Q11: May I ask if Grisia’s facial mask really works?
A: It only works for holy knights.
Q12: What type of girls do the Twelve Holy Knights like?
Sun—Before becoming blind, beauties. After becoming blind, anyone with a good figure.
Storm—Someone who takes the initiative to chase after him, but her figure cannot be too good. He would be embarrassed.
Earth—Beauties who are busty.
Blaze—What are girls? Can they be eaten?
Cloud—It depends on what kind of female protagonist is in the book he is currently reading.
Judgment—Someone filled with a sense of justice and who will take the initiative, or else there will probably be no result for his entire lifetime.
Moon—Always on the lookout for a girlfriend over 180cm tall.
Ice—Someone who likes to eat sweets. It’s even better if that someone gives off a nice scent.
Metal—Someone with a whip. Moon doesn’t count.
Stone—As long as the person likes me. (Pauses for a moment.) Really likes me!
Q13: May I please ask if the other Twelve Holy Knights actually all know that Sun and Judgment are good friends?
A: “No, no, of course we don’t know that they are such good friends that they often chat in the bathroom!” By the Twelve Holy Knight-Captains
Q14: Does the Storm Knight ever have a day where he doesn’t have to correct documents?
A: Yes, in order to express gratitude toward him, he is always given a day of vacation on his birthday.
Q15: What is Neo and Chasel’s relationship like?
A: One is responsible for causing trouble. One is responsible for cleaning up after him.
Q16: When can the Twelve Holy Knights marry? Don’t tell me it’s after forty?
A: It depends on when they save up enough money for the marriage. Holy knights are very poor.
Q17: Just how much money did Sun sneak away with by the time he retired?
A: Actually, after the demon king incident, Sun is left with only debts.
Q18: Adair, Vidar, and Tyler, please describe your captains in one sentence.
Adair—”Captain, would you like some blueberry pie?”
Vidar—”Yes, Captain Judgment!”
Tyler—”Captain, please do not worry. You are doing an amazing job, so don’t fret.”
Q19: Please give me Adair’s past, future, and ambitions!
A: …His height is 185cm, his three sizes are 113, 82, 98 (unit: cm). How’s that?
Q20: What is Sun’s small habit when he gives a serious command?
A: He will unconsciously… “You’re not allowed to say it!” By the “Eleven” Holy Knights
