The Duke’s Madness - Chapter 144
The Duke’s Madness chapter 144
City of dreams and hopes.
However, strange rumors began to circulate in Arcane, which had now become a colony of Dormund.
“I heard a sword master appeared?”
“But you say that sword master is a mercenary who made a name for himself seven years ago?”
“A famous mercenary? Isn’t that Willett Crestol?”
The rumors were different.
Some knew it was the appearance of a sword master, while others thought it was a mercenary who had made a name for himself seven years ago.
Others said it was the rebel leader, Willett Crestol.
However, one thing they had in common was the fact that the protagonists of these rumors mercilessly slaughtered the Dormund search police.
“A war broke out in District D… … .”
“oh. I heard that too. I heard you even shot a cannon?”
“But the one who lost the fight was the search police!”
The citizens of Arcane had a lot of fun talking about these rumors.
Isn’t it the story that whoever the main character of the rumor defeated the search police?
It was when the rumors started to spread little by little that they covered Arcane.
In the mayor’s office in the newly renovated town hall of Arcane, a colony headquarters, a man slammed the table.
“… Instead of leading the troops and dealing with the rebels, instead of killing them!?”
Dogs among the 13 ears dispatched directly from Dormund.
He shouted harshly with his three-headed mouth.
“that that… Sorry, Mayor… … .”
“That surprise was a success… … .”
The dog, unable to hold back his anger at the search police’s excuses, rose from his seat.
The search police, who raised their eyes, hesitated back, but it was already too late.
The dog, which moved the right one of the three heads, swallowed the head of one of the two search officers.
“Cheer, kuck… … .”
With a short bobbed scream, the head of the search police officer died.
Another police officer, who was watching the scene from the side, hurriedly covered his mouth.
‘Rain, if I scream, I’ll die too!’
He forced himself to hold back the retching that erupted, and he lowered his head.
The dog who watched the scene put a fishy smile on his lips.
“Do you think you won’t eat it?”
The search officer, who had his head down, was startled.
However, the dog’s head had already moved.
The door to the mayor’s office was opened roughly at the moment when the search policeman’s mouth was opened by sharp fangs approaching.
“… Are you eating again?”
At the same time, it was the new Police Commissioner, Captain Marsius.
The dog turned its head and shouted.
“Don’t interrupt! I feel pretty bad right now!”
“hmm… Then, let’s talk after dinner.”
At these words, the shivering police officer shouted.
“Stop, Captain! What do you mean! I, save me… Kuck!”
The dog grabbed the search cop’s head and swallowed it.
It’s accurate to say that it was ripped off, but it wasn’t particularly important.
Masius said, looking away from his subordinate who had become a cold corpse.
“Did you hear the news?”
He said, wiping the blood from his mouth.
“heard. What have you been doing, Marius?”
“no… I did my best. Who knew that such a variable would intervene?”
The dog’s eyebrows trembled.
“variable? So, are the rumors floating around that street true?’
“hmm… It seems so.”
The corners of Masius’ mouth twisted.
“Dun, the legendary mercenary who disappeared 7 years ago… It seems that the one called that has returned.”
The dog burst out laughing.
“The mercenary theme legend? That’s grand.”
“I think so too. But I can’t seem to ignore it.”
Masius slumped on the sofa and snapped his fingers.
“Willet… I was hoping that the old man would put the bastard in so that the rebels could catch them all now, but I missed that.”
“You didn’t come here to make excuses like that, so what are the countermeasures?”
At Gyeon’s words, Masius shrugged.
“How about setting a trap?”
The corners of Masius’ mouth went up.
“Yes, trap. Let’s set a very strong trap to catch the rats.”

Two days had passed since I met Julie and the Arcane professors.
Arthur muttered as he looked at Julie, who was asleep after chatting all day last night.
“hmm… Looking at it like this, it was really big.”
They say kids grow up quickly, and Julie has grown up a lot in the past 7 years.
It was a time when Arthur, who was both happy with his growth and somewhat saddened, scratched his head.
The door opened and someone came in.
“You are here, Gongja.”
It was Genie, the leader of the [Ghosts] faction.
She entered the room and looked at Julie, who was sleeping, and burst into laughter.
“Did Julie grow up a lot?”
“yes. You’ve grown so much that you don’t even know.”
“Originally yes. Children grow up quickly without adults knowing.”
Ginny pointed to the door.
“By the way, Confucius, there will be a meeting from now on, can you attend?”
Arthur tilted his head.
“What meeting is it?”
“Originally, the meeting would have been held two days ago if the raid had not happened, but they said it would be held today.”
At her words, Arthur nodded at once.
“Is it good? I also wanted to know what was going on.”
After hearing Arthur’s answer, Ginny turned around and left the room.
I passed the room where Julie slept and headed for the conference hall located in the basement of the building, and saw a familiar face.
Arcane’s former mayor.
It was Angelina Baby.
There were about 10 strangers around her.
It was each of the righteous armies supporting the Arcane rebels.
At that time, Angelina, who found Arthur, asked a question with her eyes shining.
“Is Confucius also attending? Mr. Ginny?”
“hmm… Not bad. I already had something to check with Duke Arthur of Bavaria.”
Angelina nodded and asked a question.
“Can you say a simple greeting first, Gongja?”
At her words, Arthur stood up and said.
“hello everyone? I am Arthur Bayern.”
A low exclamation burst out among the righteous soldiers at his brief self-introduction.
‘That person… The legendary mercenary Dawn?’
‘By the way, he’s also the heir to the Duke of Bavaria?’
‘hmm… I can’t believe it. A young man like that?’
Then someone sitting at a round table raised his hand.
It was a righteous army with the name Theon.
Arthur nodded, and Theon opened his mouth to ask a question.
“really… Is that Arthur Bayern, who disappeared seven years ago?”
“yes. you’re right.”
“How are you going to prove that?”
Arthur’s eyes widened at Theon’s words.
Ginny, who was next to me, said softly, frowning.
“Why do you need proof? I guarantee it!”
“… What effect does the thug leader’s guarantee have?”
“what!? I’m done talking now!”
“Oh, did you hear me? It seems that her ears are so big that she can hear her talking to herself.”
Ginny, who had a crumpled expression, stood up, but Theon came first.
“Isn’t everyone strange!?”
“The heir to the Duke of Bavaria, who disappeared seven years ago, appears at this time! At that time, how riotous the Arcanes were to find the Prince of Bavaria!”
At his words, the volunteer soldiers who were watching the situation nodded.
Certainly, as Theon said, it was strange that the heir to the Duke of Bavaria, who disappeared seven years ago, would appear like this.
Theon, who gained momentum from that appearance, opened his mouth again.
“In addition, they say that this boy’s identity is Dawn, a legendary mercenary who disappeared 7 years ago! The successor to the Duke of Bavaria is a legendary mercenary? Does this even make sense!”
The righteous soldiers burst into exclamations this time.
Certainly, like Theon said, this also didn’t make sense.
The heir to the Duke of Bavaria is a legendary mercenary?
Urban ghost stories also have a line, but this one has been out of the way for a while.
At that time, Ginny couldn’t stand it and shouted.
“f*ck. I know it’s sweet when it comes to words.”
“okay… I know you want to be suspicious. But this is the benefactor who saved their lives. If this person hadn’t been there, the search police would have arrested everyone at the same time!”
“… … .”
“I can’t say thank you to such a person, but is it right to ask a question like this?”
Theon burst out laughing.
“I am grateful for that. But shouldn’t we point out something else that needs to be pointed out? ear. fight. Mr. Lee.”
With Theon’s provocation, Ginny spurred on and stood up.
Theon did not lose and confronted such a genie.
Arthur scratched his head at the situation that quickly became a mess.
‘hmm… It seems that the unity is not as good as I thought.’
Well, there were only three forces gathered here.
Arcane University, Willett’s mercenaries, the dwarves.

No matter how much they united for one purpose, it would be strange that there was no quarrel.
After thinking for a while, Arthur decided not to intervene in the quarrel.
If you, as an outsider, intervene, nothing good will come of it.
As he decided to observe the situation, something caught Arthur’s gaze.
Theon was a unique tattoo on the neck of a righteous soldier.
‘what? that one?’
At that moment when Arthur let out a low exclamation at the familiar tattoo, Angelina murmured.
‘Be honest… It’s suspicious.’
Like Theon said, he didn’t doubt Arthur, but honestly, he couldn’t hide his surprise.
‘To think that the successor of Bavaria was a legendary mercenary who disappeared 7 years ago… .’
Aside from the appearance of the missing Bavaria heir, is that Arthur Bayern the legendary mercenary who stirred up the streets behind Arcane?
Because of that, Angelina did not intervene in the fight and just watched.
It was because it seemed better to use this situation to find out more information about Arthur Bayern rather than mediate the situation now.
Then Theon shouted harshly.
“Hasn’t our information been leaked lately?”
“Judging from the fact that they found out about our conference hall and attacked it, it sounds like there is a traitor inside! In the meantime, the outsider who appeared is the author!”
At his words, the eyes of the rest of the volunteers widened.
Ginny clicked her tongue, and Angelina’s eyes twinkled.
Meanwhile, Theon raised an eyebrow.
“Isn’t this a suspicious situation for anyone to see? Isn’t everyone like that?”
At his words, everyone shut their mouths and averted their eyes.
In the midst of that focused attention, Arthur, who had been silent until now, opened his mouth.
“hmm… So are you calling me a Dormund rat?”
Theon, who had shouted earlier, answered Arthur’s words.
“Can’t we think that way enough?”
“no. I can doubt that enough. however… … .”
Arthur, speechless, tilted his head.
“To me, you look like a traitor, don’t you?”
Everyone at the scene was surprised by Arthur’s words.
It was no different for Theon.
“Muh, what! I’m a traitor!? What nonsense is that!”
Instead of replying to his words, Arthur took out the Beast.
Everyone’s eyes widened at the sound of guns being loaded.
In the meantime, Arthur smiled broadly and said.
“The thief said that my feet were tingling, so he was just talking about you.”
Theon opens his mouth in amazement, bursting into a hollow laugh.
“under! Can’t you talk now, will you threaten me with a gun?”
“Okay, give it a shot! This rat is a mouse! Is it not enough to dare to call me a traitor?”
Arthur’s eyes widened at his words.
“Yes, shoot! If you shoot, you’ll be caught by the people here and you’ll be tortured the worst… … .”
“… … .”
Smoke rose from the Beast’s muzzle.
Theon, who had narrowed his eyes, turned his head.
I saw a huge hole in my stomach.
Theon muttered, his eyes wide open.
“really… Did you shoot?”
With these words, Theon collapsed.
The militias opened their mouths at the sight, and Ginny and Angelina froze.
In the meantime, Arthur, who had turned the Beast around once, spoke to Angelina.
“What a strange spy. Revealing his identity and trying to shoot him? Isn’t that right, Mayor?”
Angelina, who came to her senses at Arthur’s words, couldn’t hide her embarrassment.
“Well, what do you mean, Confucius? Theon is a traitor.”
“That’s right, Mayor. That Theon is a traitor and a spy.”
“A Dormund spy. That bat tattoo… That’s the tattoo that Dormund agents mean.”
Angelina opened her mouth, not understanding the situation.
‘… Theon was a spy?’
He was a merchant representative of a commercial association known in Arcane and a huge sponsor who helped the righteous soldiers?
Moreover, if he is a traitor, why can’t he, who has pentagram eyes, not recognize him?
Arthur smiled when Angelina couldn’t react to a situation that didn’t make sense to common sense.
“But it seems there are still more to come.”
“A spy from Dormund. Dormund spies usually work in teams of two.”
With these words, Arthur looked at the righteous soldiers.
Surprised soldiers froze.
In that situation, Arthur said while reloading the Beast.
“Come on, everyone. Please take off your panties one by one.”
“Like I said earlier, I have to check the tattoos that represent Dormund spies.”
Arthur laughed softly.
“Of course, everyone will cooperate, right? It’s about identifying traitors.”
The mouths of the righteous soldiers hung wide in amazement.
