The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 158
59. Block the gates of hell! (3)
At Tarion’s report, Kariel tilted her head.
“It is a dragon. A great gray dragon appeared.”
When Kariel was taken aback by the sudden appearance of a dragon, Tarion added an additional word.
“Thousands of dragons are a problem, but giant wolves are also a problem. The ranks are said to be rapidly collapsing because of the great wolves spewing gray flames.”
– Has it been opened up to that point in the end?
At Tarion’s report, Surtur said with a serious expression.
At Kariel’s question, Surt nodded slightly and said.
-Nastrond at the bottom of Hell. The worst hell known to have existed near Ygradsil, the world tree in the past, has been opened.
“What is that… … .”
Kariel urged him with a wink, as if to say more, and Surtur told him what he knew.
A hell where only those with the worst sins in the past went.
It was a hell infested with the descendants of Fenrir, the great hell wolves and the children of the corpse and yygradsil dragon Nidhogg. It was a terrible place, where, after each time his soul was torn into thousands, he was restored and punished by the wolf king and dragons.
Then, at Surt’s words, Kariel asked with a serious expression.
“no way… … They are alive… … .”
– Fenrir is dead. But I don’t know about Nidhogg. The dragons are highly likely to have survived even after the destruction, so he might be alive too.
“Needhog… … Do you think I am stronger than the Demon King?”
Surtur nodded slightly at Kariel’s question.
At the thought that a mythical entity might appear, Kariel’s expression became more serious than ever.
“If it’s sulphur… … Can you stop Nidhogg?”
-of course. Even if we can’t win, it’s about stopping us from going over here… … .
If Gareum recovers all of her past skills, she might be able to win. But in reality it was impossible.
This is because once all the souls have already been torn apart, the exalted dignity of the past has fallen indefinitely.
Nevertheless, if it is a gareum, it is possible to block the door.
“I need to revive Gareum as soon as possible.”
There was no time since even the deepest beings of Hell began to come over.
The problem was that the Confederate front was collapsing.
– Where’s the time to think?
“I know. Since when did you start fighting by weighing the odds?”
It is Kariel who has always fought in the worst situation in her previous life.
“Let’s go right away.”
Immediately following Kariel’s orders, the entire army prepared to depart.
* * *
When Kariel, who had completed the 9th Gate of Hell, arrived at the Southern Front, the Allied forces eagerly awaiting him faced the worst situation.
“Never give up!”
“Hold on until the Ignit Imperial Army arrives!”
The Allied Forces that endure while using evil.
But it wasn’t just the dragons and the wolves of hell that were tormenting the Allies.
At this point, Sandria’s main force appeared with the determination to destroy the Allied Forces.
All the tribal chiefs leading the best tribes of Sandria appeared.
Among them, the three figures who pioneered the realm of masters have been charging at the forefront of the Allied Forces.
The golden hawk of the desert.
They all had great nicknames, and they fought against the Masters of the Allied Forces.
King of Knights Brighton, Old Man Douglas, and King Batu of Golan fought against the Masters of Sandria to buy time, but there was a limit.
This is because the front line, which could barely survive because of their existence, began to crumble slowly.
“It’s a piece of shit.”
Huge hell wolves at the forefront, and humans screaming as dragons churn gray flames that churn the sky.
Kariel’s expression frowned as he watched it from afar.
But that wasn’t the end.
A huge number of infernal armies followed.
A line of defense that should have been pierced in the first place.
The reason why they had endured so far in the worst situation to the extent that the defense line made up of several layers left only the last line of defense was only because of the hope that they could block it if Kariel came.
“Yes! your majesty.”
Bowing at Kariel’s command, Tarion ordered the shadows and red ghosts to attack.
At the same time, Kariel’s summoned bodies appeared.
「Bringer of Victory」
A nickname given to Kariel by a scholar.
The savior of the continent, the fire saint, the apostle of the gods, and the great unified emperor.
There were so many nicknames that Kariel had.
However, at this point, Kariel’s nickname that received the most overwhelming support was the Victory Leader.
As the owner of a nickname created by the hopes of people who want to lead mankind on the road to victory, Kariel stabilized the front line that was being pushed with overwhelming power as soon as he appeared.
“The guide to victory has arrived!”
With the shouts of the soldiers, the morale that had been lying on the floor soared in an instant.
The soldiers, who were busy running away from the wolf, took up their weapons and ran forward with hope.
The knights gathered again and stopped the wolf from breaking through, and the soldiers and wizards joined forces to attack the dragon flying from the air.
“I will break through the gates of hell at once like this!”
Kariel’s army is trying to break through at once in the form of a wedge with the Red Ghost as the main axis.
As he had done so far, he planned to clear the way to the gates of Hell with the overwhelming power of Kariel and the Fire Priests, but this time it was not easy.
“The Roman army has appeared!”
Even Roman’s main force, which had not been seen in the meantime, appeared.
They know that this battle will be an important turning point in the future war situation.
As if to prove it, the mage Vulcan, who is always attached to the emperor, appeared.
At Cariel’s question, Achelio moves forward without saying a word.
In order to assist him, several imperial knights stepped forward and opened the way.
But they weren’t over.
“It’s a black moon.”
When Kariel looked back at Tarion this time, he lowered his head and took the shadows forward, even though he had an uneasy expression on his face.
In a situation where Roman and Ignit’s special powers collided, Kariel silently moved forward.
“If you close the gates of hell, it will be over. Clear the way!”
“number of people!”
At Kariel’s command, a small number of red ghosts and imperial knights stepped forward to clear the way.
They advance while cutting down countless ghosts and ghosts.
In the process of closing the gates of hell, they were elites who had destroyed countless armies of hell, but the wolves and dragons from the lowest layer of hell were a burden to them as well.
But something else appeared before them.
Kariel looked ahead with a surprised expression.
A figure made of huge bones appeared with the cry of the beast.
-Is it Garum?
Murmuring so, Surt grew in size himself.
Before I knew it, Skoll and Agni also became gigantic and stood in front of the bony grim.
Kariel’s proud three summoned bodies blocked the front, but it was only to block Gareum’s rush.
“… … Are you a monster?”
Kariel achieved rapid growth by absorbing Gareum’s soul fragments.
Along with his growth, the summoned bodies have also grown a lot, but they are being pushed aside without being able to block a single gap.
“yet. Not yet.”
I shook my head as I watched the rushing in and saw the article talking urgently.
Although they were being pushed back, the summoned bodies held out, and thanks to the rampage of the giant shards, the hell side of the line was completely shattered.
Apparently, Gareum was rampaging not too far from the gates of Hell, so the beings of Hell in the vicinity rushed forward to avoid the aftermath of the fight.
And for Kariel, who was advancing at the risk, this was an opportunity.
“Hold on a little longer!”
Watching Surt fall from Gareum’s tail, he spoke and quickly ran forward.
Then, the knights of the imperial palace opened the road with all their might.
“Open the way for Your Majesty!”
“Clear the road!”
As the knights roared and cut down the monsters of hell, they made a gray road, and thanks to that, the gate of hell was right in front of them.

Just then, as if they had been waiting, powerful beings appeared from the gates of hell.
“Poor bastards… … .”
Since the age of mythology, giants who suffered endlessly in hell appeared.
Gray energy emanated from its huge, bone-only body, and chills emanated from its bones, forming frost in the desert sand.
A different level of strength from the giants of hell we met at the supply line defenses in the past.
The power of the giant who officially came out of the gates of hell was strong, although he lost most of his powers during his lifetime.
This is because they bravely walked out while enduring the fire of Kariel that could melt all the monsters of hell.
‘It’s much weaker than I’ve heard.’
I thought that Kariel could do it well enough.
Compared to the ‘Frost Giants’ that Surt had heard of, they were weak and weak.
So Kariel did not stop walking and moved forward.
As he approached the gates of hell, the resonance of Gareum’s soul fragments engraved on his body grew larger and larger.
‘I only need to arrive at the gates of hell.’
A huge gate to hell I’ve never seen before.
There was a high possibility that the gray jewel embedded there was a piece of Garreum’s soul.
If only the giant jewel embedded in the upper part of the gate of hell is purified, the giant gate of hell will also be closed.
Looking at the giants appearing through Kariel’s flames, those wearing robes said anxiously.
“I just need to purify that.”
The moment Kariel said that, powerful magic attacks fell from the air.
The moment the huge gray-colored ice spear fell, a fire shield spread and blocked it.
The woman who vomited blood took out a potion from her bosom and drank it in, standing up again.
“… … it’s okay.”
“Is the opponent a mage class?”
“It is presumed to be so.”
At the woman’s words, Kariel sighed.
“A Roman mage must be a Vulcan.”
After saying that, Kariel bit her lip.
As if the opponent had no intention of giving Kariel time, he prepared to manifest his magic again while spewing out powerful mana.
The giants of hell who are presumed to be frost giants with mage-level magic.
Looking at them, Kariel said.
“Can you make a way through that mage and them?”
At Kariel’s question, the robed nodded their heads in unison.
Then, Kariel also nodded slightly to them and immediately used the power of fire to its maximum.
At that moment, the robes worn by those by Kariel’s side burned and appeared.
“The Imperial Guard, following Your Majesty’s order, will clear the way.”
Kariel’s bodyguards, who all showed red patterns on their foreheads, revealed their strength.
“Even though the opponent is a mage, he has accepted the power of hell. By nature, we have the upper hand.”
Toto, who became the captain of the bodyguard, said so and swung his big sword.
The first move opened the way, cutting down the spear of ice that was flying in again.
Then, as Iris and Brion moved behind them, they dragged the time by breaking or cutting the joints of the giants.
At the same time, Arsuna exerted her flame magic to the limit, distracting the mage as much as possible.
Kariel’s bodyguard, famous since the days of the Crown Prince.
But it wasn’t the same as before.
This is because dozens of people moved behind them and opened the way.
All of them received the blessing of fire directly from Kariel, and their foreheads were emitting a bright light.
“Big… … .”
Since he was a mage who achieved great heights, it would have been difficult for all of the bodyguards to stick together.
But it was a mistake for him to accept the powers of Hell.
The power of magic may have gotten stronger, but the power of fire, which has a stronger affinity than that, was not able to properly exert its power against the SS.
And so were the bones of the giant frost giant.
– Whoa, whoa!
Cariel finally arrived in front of the gates of hell through the road opened by the bodyguards, leaving behind the bones that howled and made stupid noises.
At that moment, green flames erupted and enveloped the gates of hell.
At the same time, a storm of fire was created and enveloped Kariel and the Hell Gate.
