Chapter 272: A True Demon, Kang Chul-In!

A red sac… 

A sac with a poison called ‘acid blood’ inside of it that was enough to melt metal. Each ‘suicide chimera’ poured out about 40 L of acid blood. 

Pung, pung!

The suicide chimeras spewed out acid blood after exploding. 

“Aaaaaaaaaaaaack!”

“K-Keuk...!”

“S-Save me...!”

“It… hurts… so… mu...”

The Valhalla army suffered huge losses. In an instant, about a thousand soldiers had died. 

When had the chimeras come? They had climbed up the city walls. 

-Keet?!

No one had noticed them arrive. This was because the suicide chimeras had a superior cloaking ability!

Pung!

Another suicide chimera exploded, and about 20 Valhalla soldiers melted into blood. It was an enemy they couldn’t see. There couldn’t be a better assassination than this. 

No matter how strong the Valhalla army was, they couldn’t detect the movements of something that approached them silently. 

“I’ll stop them!”

Just then, Lucia stepped up. 

-Kyaaaaaak!

The suicide chimeras ran at Lucia and exploded in a blink. 

Drip drip drip!

The acid blood began to pour down on Lucia and the rest of the Valhalla soldiers. 

...No, it tried to pour down. 

[War Machine Mode, R.E.A.D.Y.]

Just then!

[Target, confirmed!]

[Goal, complete destruction!]

[War Machine Mode, activated!]

Lucia blocked the suicide chimera running by dashing in front of it at the speed of light. 

Chik, chiiiiik!

Her shield was steaming, acid blood all over it. But that was it. 

Aegis was fine after being covered by acid blood. 

“Everyone pull yourselves together!”

It wasn’t just Lucia who contributed to the fight. 

“I’ll stop them, so fight with a comforted mind!”

Drakan threw himself forward as if to encourage the soldiers. 

Flash!

His yellow amphibian eyes shined. Draconic Eyes! Drakan’s eyesight was different from everyone else’s. 

Cloaking? He could see through it. Drakan’s Draconic Eyes could also see things like ghosts and poltergeists. 

“How dare you!?”

He glared at something. Then, bam!

Chrak!

Black Dragon Bone Blade! 

The blade cut through the empty air. No, it wasn’t empty air. 

Puak!

Red blood spurted out, and a suicide chimera that was cut into two pieces fell down the castle walls. 

Acid blood didn’t pour out, however, because Drakan had killed it before it could self-destruct!

“Lizard, you’re pretty good!”

Amur shouted as he jumped up like lightning. 

“You! How dare a mere cat judge me!? Unless you wanna be swept away by their suicide attack, take care of yourself, and mind your own business!”

“Suicide attack? Hehe… do you think that this Amur would die from trash like that!?”

Amur swung his Black Dragon Bone Great Sword around. 

Puaaaaak!

Another suicide chimera fell down into two pieces. 

Amur had the DNA of a tiger. His senses could feel through the cloaking even without the Draconic Eyes!

“You’re pretty good yourself, cat.”

“A mere lizard dares to play around?”

A dragon and tiger always growled at each other, and there weren’t any exceptions made on a battlefield either. 

No, it was worse because it was a battlefield. 

Drakan and Amur’s abilities were on the same level!

It was hard to tell who was better, so their competition became intense. 

“Haha! You two always get along so well!”

This time, Podolski stepped up. 

Chrak, chrarak!

Podolski’s iron whip began to cut into anything 10 metres around him. 

Chrak, chrak, chrak, chrak, chrak!

It was a curtain of a whip. 

It looked like a curtain with patterns stripes on it. Podolski’s whip created sonic booms after it broke through the sound barrier.  

-Kyaaaak!

-Kyak!

Thanks to that, the suicide chimeras that had been aiming for the soldiers around Podolski fell down the city walls before they could even explode. 

He was really the master of binds. It seemed like Podolski was good with things that could tie things up. 

“Let’s go!”

“Yes, sir!”

Standing back to back, James and Michael began to use their senses to cut apart the suicide chimeras. 

“Ahem!”

The little old magician Nilus couldn’t stay still either. 

“ ﺑﺸﻌﺒﯿﺔ ﻛﺒﻲ ...ﻣﻌﺮض ﺳﯿﺌﻮﻟﻤﻌﺮض ﺳﯿﺊ ... ﻣﺴ · ول اﻟﻌﺎﻟﻢ ﻓﻲ ﻣﻌﺮض ﺳﯿﺌﻮل ﻟﻠﺼﺪاﻗﺔ ﻻ ﺗﺰا ﻼت ﻛﻮرﯾﺔ ﺟﻨﻮﺑﯿﺔ ﻠﺴ!”

He cast spells, and a cold air began to wrap around the Deathwin Fortress’ castle walls. 

“Ugh… it’s so cold!”

“Ughhh!”

The Valhalla forces shook from the cold. 

“Sir Nilus! What are you doing!? Do you have a brain!?”

Amur shouted in surprise. 

What was he doing freezing the soldiers to death when he should be protecting them. It was obvious the soldiers wouldn’t be able to fight!

“Kul kul!” 

Nilus laughed. 

Amur only thought about one thing, but not two. 

“I-I see them!”

“There, be careful!”

“Push it off!”

The Valhalla soldiers began to find and respond to the locations of the suicide chimeras. 

“Hm?” 

Amur made a stupid face. 

It was because of the frost. Even if they hid their bodies with cloaking abilities, they couldn’t stop the frost from getting on them. 

“Be careful!”

“It’s coming, stop it!”

Thanks to that, the suicide chimeras decreased one by one. They couldn’t see them perfectly, but it was enough to see their white silhouette. The Valhalla soldiers were skilled enough to deal with the suicide chimeras just by seeing their silhouettes. 

“Whoa, Miss Lucia!”

“General Drakan!”

“General Amur contributed a lot too!”

“Sir Podolski, thank you!”

“Thank you, Sir Nilus!”

“Thank you, Captain James!”

“Wow… Captain Michael!”

Kang Chul-In wasn’t the only martial artist. 

All the people with three stars in Laputa were those trained by Kang Chul-In. 

They were people who wouldn’t fall short anywhere!

“I… should do something too.”

The contribution of the martial artists woke Kwak Jung up. 

They were blocking the attack of the chimeras, but their enemies were too great. During times like this, he had to show them something big. 

Kwak Jung gripped a white fan in his hand. 

Spark, spark!

The White Rain Fan was rebelling against Kwak Jung, not recognizing him as its owner. 

“Fine… be like that… try to continue rebelling… I’ll see how far you go with that.”

Blue sparks flashed between Kwak Jung’s mouth as he grinned devilishly. It was like he enjoyed the rebellion of the White Rain Fan. 

“Hey, you bastard!” 

Kwak Jung spit out. 

It was a fierce voice. It was the voice of a gang boss who used to lunge out with a sword at his enemies. 

Whoosh, whoosh...!

Kwak Jung’s eyes started to flare with purple fire, and the White Rain Fan trembled, like it was intimated by Kwak Jung. 

“Strong Wind!” 

He shouted the spell for controlling the weather.

Gooooooo!

The atmosphere began to shake. 

***

In the underground basement of the Bifrost territory in the Pentagon of the Gullveig Alliance… there was a sea of blood. 

There were about 200 corpses lying around, and others were groaning with an arm or leg cut off. 

It was the descent of a demon. 

Kang Chul-In had succeeded in controlling them with his spectre cavalry. 

“Keuk!”

Overall rank 22. 

“Keukk.”

The Lord of the Yellowstorm territory, Soybean, groaned twice. 

His head was in Kang Chul-In’s hand at the moment. 

-Lord Soybead, complete control!

The message popped up in front of Kang Chul-In. 

[Lord Soybean]

Ability: Violent Storms

Type: Buff (conditional)

Side-effects: None

Additional description:

Every year on 2/22 at 02:22:22, the ability increases attacking power by 22,222% for 0.2 seconds. 

“What kind of...”

Kang Chul-In was flabbergasted. 

The name of the skill sounded strong, but it was hilarious that it could only be used for 0.2 seconds once a year. 

Where was this skill supposed to be used?

Also, Soybean’s speciality was a unique one called [Staying at the Top], and his territory would grow at the rate that the others’ did, but there was a detrimental con that he could never be first. 

This might be good for some people, but to Kang Chul-In, who always liked to get first place, it was useless. 

Hm… well, since you never know. 

He didn’t really want the Staying at the Top, but he felt like the Violent Storms would be useful someday. 

However, it was also likely he would never use it. 

Wrooong!

Kang Chul-In’s hand that was holding Lord Soybean’s head began absorbing. 

“Aaaaaack!”

As his ability was absorbed, Soybean screamed. Not too long after, 

[You have absorbed the skill, ‘Violent Storms!’]

[The proficiency of Skill Absorption has increased!]

[The level of Skill Absorption has gone up from level 2 to level 3!]

[The Authority of an Overlord can be absorbed!]

[Skill transfer, possible!]

“Level 3… well, not bad.”

Kang Chul-In had a satisfied face. 

It wasn’t bad. 

He could absorb the authorities of Overlords and share his power with his subordinates. 

Of course, he didn’t know if the Violent Storms would be useful to them either. 

“Huk… huk…”

Soybean breathed raggedly, having his skill taken. It seemed like he was tired physically.

“Hey,” Kang Chul-In spoke towards Soybean. 

“Yes…?”

“Are you tired?”

“N-No, sir!”

Soybean had to pretend like he was okay because he felt like he was going to be beaten up if he said otherwise. 

“Really? Hm…”

“Yes, sir.”

“Then put your head on the ground there.”

Kang Chul-In pointed to a place. 

There, the sovereigns of the Gullveig Alliance were all gathered, sticking their faces to the ground, and the spectre cavalry was supervising them. 

It was to cut their necks off immediately if they tried to run away or attempt something. 

They’re all just little fish… hmph…

It was a shame for Kang Chul-In. 

He had brought out his hook, but he didn’t catch anything big.

Unfortunately, the big fish were all out on the battlefield or in their territories. 

He did achieve getting rid of Cordilleras, but Kang Chul-In wasn’t satisfied with just that. 

“Hm, it’s now time to contact Vilhelm. Hey, you there!”

Kang Chul-In wiggled his finger at a messenger soldier. 

“Yes, sir!” 

The messenger soldier that had wet his pants shouted with surprise. 

“Go call Vilhelm right now.”

“...!”

“Oh, he might not answer since he’s in war right now, so make sure you tell him it’s from the Supreme King of the West, Kang Chul-In, got it?”

“Y-Yes, sir!” 

The messenger soldier answered with gusto. 

He didn’t know what might happen if he said no. 

To live, he had to obey Kang Chul-In’s orders. 

“And… you.”

Next was Mei Ling and Vilhelm’s son, Viktor. 

“Yes?”

Mei Ling stood up from her sitting position holding Viktor in her arms. 

“Come here.”

“...!”

“When did you call Vilhelm last?”

“A-Are you…”

“You should video call your husband and show him your kid, have some nice family time,” Kang Chul-In spoke with a grin. 

It was the smile of a demon. 

Right now, not only was he planting the seed of division amongst the Gullveig Union, but he was also breaking apart a marriage!
