The Legend of Sun Knight Side Stories
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Unbeatable Part 5: Afterword – translated by dahlys
Actually, the character Aldrizzt can be considered a figure of resentment.
I, Yu Wo, really love a book called The Dark Elf Trilogy by Mister R.A. Salvatore. Although I find this book extremely interesting, it is not very famous in Taiwan. Because I rarely meet fellow enthusiasts, I have accumulated quite a bit of resentment.
The main character of The Dark Elf Trilogy is a dark elf (duh!) and the name of the main character is Drizzt Do’Urden. He is a character I really, really like.
Hence, Aldrizzt was born. (I love Drizzt~~~)
Many of Drizzt’s character traits were used for Aldrizzt, so on a certain level, it can probably be considered as a doujin.
However, since The Legend of Sun Knight is published commercially, I cannot really write a doujinshi. Therefore, I didn’t copy too much. On the other hand, since Unbeatable was released in the doujin market, I can haughtily treat Aldrizzt as Drizzt and write.
I finally wrote a doujin! (After being called a doujin writer for three years)
I hope that everyone likes Aldrizzt, and you can also read about the actual “Drizzt Do’Urden” at the same time! He really is a great character, and The Dark Elf Trilogy is also a really great book.
Since I’ve finished recommending a good book, I shall talk about Unbeatable.
In The Legend of Sun Knight, I did not write much about the partners, Neo and Aldrizzt. This is mostly because the series is written from Grisia’s point of view in 1st person, and their story was not the main story, so it’s not good to write too much.
However, they are actually a really fun pair, so I specially wrote the book “Unbeatable.”
Everyone should have realized that the Neo in Unbeatable is not exactly the same as the Neo in The Legend of Sun Knight. Actually, this version is closer to the truth.
The Legend of Sun Knight is narrated from Grisia’s perspective, so it includes his personal opinion as well as a few misunderstandings he had of his teacher. Some of it was even because of Neo’s acting when he was the Sun Knight. Putting these together, the Neo from The Legend of Sun Knight was created.
However, in Unbeatable, Neo is not a teacher. He has the same status as the people around him, so he revealed quite a lot of his real personality.
Actually, this book can be read together with Vol. 4 of The Legend of Sun Knight. The understanding amnesiac Grisia had of his teacher was perfectly accurate!
Lastly, to thank those who took great pains queuing up to buy Unbeatable, I shall secretly disclose some news about Vol. 5 of The Legend of Sun Knight.
The title for Vol. 5 of The Legend of Sun Knight is “Undying Lich (Part 1).”
Also, Neo and Aldrizzt will appear again.
Wishing everyone has their own unbeatable method.
Signed, Yu Wo
