Chapter 133. Hero Kang Chul-In.

“Uhh… Milord?”

On their way to the base of the werewolves, Leo, Kang Chul-In's guide, talked to Kang Chul-In.

“What?”

“What are you planning to do? Surely, you must have a plan for secretly…”

“I’ll just go in through the front.”

“...Sorry?”

Unable to process Kang Chul-In’s words for a second, Leo’s eyes widened soon after.

“D-Don’t tell me… you don’t have a plan…”

“Exactly!”

“...I’m so screwed…”

Hearing what Kang Chul-In said, Leo wanted to bite his tongue.

No matter how much he thought about it, invading the base of the werewolves during the full moon was suicide.

To go into a pack of a few hundred werewolves that were empowered through the full moon? It seemed better to be stuck in a cage full of tigers.

“You sure do get scared easily.”

But no matter how Leo reacted, Kang Chul-In seemed nonchalant. In reality, Kang Chul-In’s plan was very simple. It was as follows:

Go in headfirst → Beat the werewolves that he sees → Find the stupid doggy (jackpot) and grab him → Retreat.

Though it sounded simple, it was a ridiculous plan that would be the same as committing suicide for most people. 

But instead of being nervous or anxious, Kang Chul-In seemed as if he came here to take a stroll around.

“C’mon, let’s go quickly.”

Kang Chul-In once again called Leo up.

“Okay…”

Leo’s ears fell, probably due to his fright.

Ah, I’m so screwed… I should have at least written my will…

But it was too late for regrets. With Leo’s abilities, he was far from able to escape Kang Chul-In’s grasp.

---------

When Kang Chul-In arrived at the base of the Werewolves, it was just before night, before the full moon came up.

“Hmm…”

After hiding himself within the forest, Kang Chul-In opened the Lord Shop. Since his rank had risen to Overlord, he now had more choices and options to buy from.

“Is there any suitable items…”

Looking through the shop, Kang Chul-In looked for any item that seemed useful.

A few moments later.

“Ah, I found one.”

Kang Chul-In found an item that he quite liked.

[Unique] Club of Judgement

A weapon that is especially suited for fighting against vampires, and lycanthropes. It hurts a lot if hit with.

Type: Blunt weapon.

Damage: 300 (before awakening)

Durability: 60/60

Option 1: Does +15% damage against vampires

Option 2: Does +15% damage against lycanthropes

Option 3: Light-based attacks 

Option 4: Reduces healing by 7% (can stack 5 times)

Price: 1100 Gold + 30 Lord points.

Though the item was quite pricey, since it was an item fit for the situation he was in, Kang Chul-In bought it anyway. 

And he bought another item with it.

[Unique] Mask of Chaos

A mask that completely masks the user’s face.

Type: Mask

Option 1: Changes voice

Option 2: Has a spell that makes enemies forget your face

Option 3: 5% chance to confuse enemies. 

Price: 900 gold + 40 Lord points.

It had options that weren’t bad and it was an item that was perfect for hiding his identity. The only problem was that once again, it was quite expensive.

But there was no other choice.

If Aleister heard that Kang Chul-In was here, that would cause big problems in the future. For the sake of tricking Aleister, Kang Chul-In was willing to pay the price.

“Buy.”

As Kang Chul-In spoke, the two items ended up in his outstretched hands.

“Hmm, not bad.”

Kang Chul-In smiled, satisfied.

“Now, you wait here.”

“A-Are you really going to go alone? Soon, the full moon will…”

“What, so are you going to come with me?”

“N-No, sir.”

Leo immediately answered.

“Then see you later.”

“Yes, Milord.”

And with those words, Kang Chul-In started to walk away.

Ha, seems like they’ve made a whole bandit town.

The base of the Werewolves called ‘Kalevala’ was a small town, that was built solely out of wood.

“Stop!”

At the entrance, one of the werewolves standing guard stopped Kang Chul-In and started to walk towards him.

“Who are you?”

“An intruder.”

Kang Chul-In responded.

“A-An intruder? Pft… A human, like you? Haha, are you insane?”

“And what’s up with that mask?”

Multiple guards spoke, and laughed at Kang Chul-In.

“This madman. Hey, human. If you don’t want to get eaten alive, reveal your identity and tell us where you’re from.”

“I told you, I’m an intruder.”

“.....?”

The guards stared at Kang Chul-In as if they were looking at a madman, but they still questioned Kang Chul-In due to their duties.

“Ha, this madman… Huu… Quickly, reveal what you came here for. Did you come to visit Kalevala?”

“Yes, that’s right.”

“What’s the purpose for your visit?”

“To beat you guys up.”

As Kang Chul-In said that, the guards were unable to contain their laughter anymore. 

“Kuhahaha! Look at that madman talking!”

“Seems like he’s really gone insane.”

And the guard that had come to question him tried his best to calm his rising anger.

“Huu… I’ll ask one more time. What’s your purpose of visiting?”

“I thought I told you, to beat you guys up.”

“What?”

“Okay, I’ll put it simply for you since you can’t seem to understand. I came here to make this place a mess. 

That was the tipping point for the guard.

“You stupid bastard! I’ll rip you to…”

He couldn’t finish his words…

Pow!

Because Kang Chul-In had struck him down with his club.

“W-What…”

“In one blow?”

The other guards froze momentarily in astonishment.

“Just go sleep.”

Kang Chul-In didn’t miss this opportunity, moving through the guards like thunder, while knocking them out with devastating blows from his club.

Pow!

Bang!

With terrifying noises, the guards were knocked down. They hadn’t been able to use their healing factors and had just been knocked out too quickly.

------

Just before the full moon rose, blood flowed through Kalevala.

“Ahhh!”

“Kuk!”

“Oww!”

Kang Chul-In was merciless.

Werewolves?

He didn’t care whether they were male or female. 

He didn't have sympathy for these beasts that ate human flesh when they wanted to. 

But that wasn’t to say that these werewolves were weak.

In fact, the werewolves had enough strength to overpower most of the demi-human races. It was just that Kang Chul-In was way too strong. 

“Hmm…”

At this point, Kang Chul-In had already made his way deep inside Kalevala and could see a large building that seemed to be where the slaves were kept. 

“Kuhuk!”

With one gasp of pain, the werewolf that was guarding the building fell down. 

“W-Who are you?”

“Who is this? Are you here to save us?”

“Save us!”

“Let us free!”

Inside the building were around 50 fox-human women that begged to be set free.

Oh?

Kang Chul-In felt great looking at this. 

If he was able to save these fox-humans along with making a mess in Kalevala... 

No matter what, wouldn’t the Ninetails be grateful towards him? 

Maybe he would even get rewarded for saving these people here.

He was secretly rejoicing in his mind.

BANG!

Kang Chul-In’s fists shattered the cage that contained the slaves.

“Everyone, come out now.”

Kang Chul-In shouted.

“Thank you, sir!”

“Thank you, hero!”

“Hero, thank you so much!”

The women that were freed referred to Kang Chul-In as hero.

But at this, Kang Chul-In’s face stiffened.

Hero?

He wasn’t some hero that saved people from the evil Demon King or a black dragon, so what hero?

But what could he do?

He couldn’t reveal his true identity within this place.

“Everyone, this way.”

Ignoring the embarrassing way the fox-humans called him, Kang Chul-In led them with him.

It was at that moment.

-Bark bark!

A dog that looked like a welsh corgi greeted Kang Chul-In.

It was Jackpot, Dorian’s pet. Though he was normally afraid of Kang Chul-In, it seemed that at this moment he forgot all about that.

“Oh?”

A pretty fox-human came near them, her eyes widening.

“Hey, Jack.”

The lady talked to Jack.

“Do you know him?”

-Wang Wang!

“Oh, is that so.”

The lady had a kind and innocent looking face compared to the other fox-human women.

“Do you know Jack?”

“Oh, he’s the pet of an idiot that I know.”

“Oh, you’re acquaintances with Sir Dorian?”

“And you know him too?”

“Sometimes he would come towards us and say that he was sorry. He would also give us some food. Sir Dorian is also being used by those wicked werewolves…”

“Hmm… What’s your name?”

“It’s Emily, sir.”

“Emily. You take care of the dog, and run away. Leave the fight to me. You need to protect that dog no matter what.”

“Yes, of course! Jack is also my friend after all.”

It seemed as if this woman had a kind nature, unlike most of the devious fox-humans.

“Go, now!”

Kang Chul-In once again said to the fox-humans that he had freed. From far away, a group of werewolves were running at him like a hungry pack of dogs--- which in reality, they were.

-Krrr!

-Grr!

The werewolves that had finished their transformations seemed to be quite different from before.

Blue eyes that were filled with killing intent, sharp teeth, as well as terrifying looking faces. With the help of the full-moon, the werewolves had gotten a sharp increase in strength.

“Oh, look at these things.”

Kang Chul-In smirked.

He had to.

Even the Godbeast Altaica was a mere cat in his arms, so what did these werewolves think they were, growling in front of him? They didn’t know their place.

“Sigh, they said that there’s nothing wrong with the old sayings…”

Kang Chul-In muttered, while holding onto his club even harder than before.

“They say that for a crazy dog, beating them up would do the trick…”

As those words finished.

Bang!

Kang Chul-In seemed to teleport and distort space, as he arrived in front of the werewolves in the blink of an eye.

Pow!

Though the werewolves tried their best to struggle, Kang Chul-In’s beating didn’t stop.

In fact, that was just the beginning. Even with 50 werewolves trying to match up against him, they weren’t able to even put up a fight. 

30 minutes later…

The werewolves were on the floor, trembling with fright. That was how terrifying the blows of Kang Chul-In were. 

“For today, this is…”

As Kang Chul-In was just about to say that this was it for today, he sensed the presence of a beast nearby. 

It was the presence of a powerful, and wild beast.

He could also feel the aura of death nearby.

This aura that Kang Chul-In was so used to seemed almost like death itself, since it was so dense. He could also hear the signature clacking sounds of walking undead soldiers. 

Aleister.

He was sure of this. The necromancer Aleister was coming here along with his undead army. 

And is this the guy that’s called the beast king?

Though it was obvious that this aura of death was coming from Aleister, he guessed that this other presence he felt was from Alaric, the leader of the werewolves.

Aleister, and Alaric huh. They said that similar people stick with each other, so the dog lover and the undead lover are together. 

Kang Chul-In realized now how the Ninetails was defeated. Aleister and the werewolf tribe had joined forces and knocked her down.

I’ve gotten my hands on some good information here.

Satisfied with the information he had gotten…

“I’m going now.”

Kang Chul-In said to the beaten werewolves, and left.

He wasn’t crazy enough to fight against Alaric and Aleister, along with both of their armies by himself. No matter how strong he was, that was suicide.

-Krrr!

-Grr!

-Auuuu!

Realizing that their king was nearby, the once fallen werewolves stood back up and started to chase Kang Chul-In.

“Oh?”

And realizing that they were following him, Kang Chul-In looked backwards.

Kuooo-!

A bluish aura seemed to fill the club of judgement, and…

Whii--!

The aura soon became small winds, that became a tornado soon after. It was the use of Vortex.

BANG!

And where this tornado went, nothing remained. It was a clean finish by Kang Chul-In.

----------

Kang Chul-In joined up with Leo after looking for him for 2 days, and started heading towards the city of demi-humans.

This person… what the actual hell is he…

Staring at Kang Chul-In, Leo thought.

Not only had he went in by himself against the pack of werewolves, he had even created a miniature tornado by himself. How could he be an ordinary human?

Don’t tell me, Milord is actually an ancient dragon!

Leo thought of the ancient dragons that came from their storybooks. There were many stories of dragons that were over a thousand years old traveling through the continent, transforming their bodies.

Haha, as if. I mean, ancient dragons aren't real, right?

Ancient dragon referred to a dragon that was over 800 years old.

“Why are you looking at me like that?”

Noticing Leo's intense gaze, Kang Chul-In spoke to him.

“S-Sorry, Milord.”

“How much longer?”

“Uhh, we’re nearly there…”

It was at that moment

“Yo! Leo!”

Someone spoke, hidden in the fog. When the person revealed himself, it was a person with a raccoon head.

“Captain Raccoon!”

“Ah, we meet here.”

“Yes, captain!”

Captain Raccoon was a demi-human with the DNA of a raccoon and a human, and was extremely small.

“Leo, is the one next to you the ‘hero’ that our queen wants to meet?”

“Yes, Captain Raccoon.”

“Is that so. Hello there then. I’m the scout leader, Captain Raccoon.”

Kang Chul-In nodded, and shook hands with what he considered a little rat.

What kind of…

Looking at the captain in front of him, Kang Chul-In felt an unknown sense of rejection towards this creature.

Captain Raccoon was wearing a green military hat on him, and was armed with a blowgun with poison darts.

On his military backpack, one could see a small, green mushroom sticking out.

“The queen is waiting. Let’s go.”

Captain Raccoon said, and swiftly led the way.

Around 10 minutes later.

The fog started to clear up, and...

“Woah!!”

“Kyaa!”

Thunderous cheering hit Kang Chul-In’s ears.

“Hero!”

“I love you!”

“Thank you!”

“Thank you, hero!”

“Milord is truly the hero!”

In front of the city, around 2000 or so demi-humans were crowded there, all cheering for Kang Chul-In.
