The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 166
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 166
63. The Emperor is back!
Kariel showed a strong appearance against the army of hell even before undergoing the ordeal of Gareum.
I thought that since I came out after undergoing trials, I must have become stronger than before.
Nevertheless, what I was worried about was that the numbers were incomparable to when Kariel was present.
-Are you still worried?
Surtur watched the restless Tarion from behind.
Although it was Kariel who made a rain of fire from the sky and reproduced the earthly hell, Tarion was still worried.
That’s because if he was a Master level, he could break through the flames and aim at Kariel’s neck at any time.
Above all, the fire that Kariel created does not completely extinguish the army of Hell.
Even now, there were those who were running towards Kariel over the flames of the huge monsters of hell.
“It’s a lot.”
The army of hell that survived and ran through the hell created by pouring rain of fire looked like many ants.
No matter how elite Ignit’s army was, it was a huge number that would have been pushed back by the quantity if they arrived.
Despite this, Kariel puts on a relaxed expression.
“It would be possible here.”
At this moment, when the power of hell is everywhere, I could borrow Garreum’s ability without paying any ‘price’.
That meant that there was no need to be afraid of the infernal army that was now swarming.
“Gareum, open it.”
The moment Kariel finished speaking, a huge door began to form in the sky.
The moment he saw it, Tarion hurriedly stood next to Kariel in embarrassment.
Achelio, who had come running, was also on the other side, prepared for death.
Kariel, who patted them on the shoulder, said with a smile.
“They aren’t the only ones who can build the gates of hell.”
The moment Kariel said that and spread her arms wide, the gate to hell opened wide in the sky and the ghosts began pouring out.
From warriors with weapons to farmers with pitchforks to ghosts with different weapons.
However, the power they showed overwhelmed the army of Hell. Spirits more powerful than normal hungry ghosts as they are the dead wandering around Hell.
In addition, the dead who passed through Kariel’s Hell Gate could use the ‘same’ power as Hell.
Only for the dead who made a ‘contract’ with Kariel in hell, the dead who could come over to this world could pay the price by returning the beings of hell to their original place.
-Come to think of it, you’re really great too.
Surt, who was next to him, clicked his tongue as he recalled what had happened in Hell.
What Kariel did in Hell was simple.
Ignoring the cries of the dead and purifying the degenerated places of hell.
But even that has hit its limits. It was because there were enemies that Kariel’s power couldn’t handle.
However, they suddenly started disappearing from Hell one by one.
It is because the remnants of the past, which were revived by gathering enormous power, were banished from hell.
At that point, the ordeal of Garum was renewed.
To purify the hell polluted with the remnants of the past.
When Kariel, who wanted to return even a day earlier, tried to refuse it, he even adjusted the flow of time between hell and reality, offering an irresistible price.
[Reward: Partial use of Gareum’s ability (Summon Hell Gate)]
As soon as he saw this, Kariel, who turned his eyes, purged the important area as if he was empty-handed, and created an environment where the hell’s manager could restore the hell to its original state.
However, there were those who caught him as he was about to finish everything and leave: the dead.
He wanted to repay Kariel for bringing him back to rest.
So, he made a ‘contract’ with the dead who wanted to repay him.
dead man’s contract
1. You pay the price when you cross the gates of hell and return to reality.
2. A price is paid for returning the fallen beings of hell or the remnants of the past.
3. If you overpay the price, you can stay in the world for a certain period of time. Also exceptionally granting some empty wishes before death.
This contract, formally drafted through Garum and Hell’s custodian, was fully effective in both worlds, acknowledging the as yet unidentified god.
That is why the dead who passed through the gates of hell created by Kariel were strong.
“The dead who came out according to the due process cannot lose to the illegal immigrants.”
After saying that, Kariel smiled.
Hell Gate, built by borrowing the power of Garum, the gatekeeper of the Hell Gate, was the most stable passageway between this place and Hell.
Nationally, the ghosts were the normal route, and the army of Hell was illegal immigrants.
And the world pays a price more cruel than the state.
Since they came in illegally, it meant that they had to give more of what they had and cross over here.
The power of the dead or the demons, part of their souls, etc., are lost and weakened in the process of passing over, so they are overwhelmed by the dead who have passed through the gates of hell.
“Maybe even more cruel than humans.”
Cariel, who muttered like that, looking up at the ‘God’ who doesn’t care for the slightest bit, quietly looked up.
Huge bones bigger than most hills.
The bones of the old frost giant walked slowly through the flames.
It is not a remnant of the past, but it exerted a powerful force like the bones of giants that dominated the myth era.
But even these were no longer a threat.
“Agni, stop it.”
Having said that, Kariel quietly walked through the desert.
Then a curtain of fire was built around him on both sides.
Cariel, who looked back while showing off his overwhelming majesty, asked Tharion.
“The Palace of Hell?”
“… … It is estimated to be in the completion stage.”
At Tarion’s report, Kariel shut her mouth and looked up at the sky.
Unseen by others, a dog far greater than the bones of the frost giants floated in the air in front of the great gates of hell.
The resurrection of the goddess who was once his master.
However, there was a high probability that the resurrected woman would not be the one from the Age of Mythology.
That’s why Gareum must be lending her strength to Kariel.
Feeling Gareum’s complex mind flow into Kariel, Kariel frowned and gave the order.
“From now on, we’re going through that place and heading to the palace of hell.”
All of Ignit’s army following Kariel’s orders bowed their heads and answered.
Even though it was limited to the army of Hell, Kariel’s appearance with such overwhelming power seemed great enough to make anyone admire him.
Kariel, who is called the savior of hell beyond the purifier of hell, headed to the palace of hell where the Roman emperor will be in order to save the continent this time.
The moment I gave that order, a blue light exploded and pierced the army of hell that stood in my way.
“her… … .”
“… … .”
A huge wolf that pierced the front with overwhelming power that surprised even Tharion and Akelio who had reached mastery.
To them, Kariel smiled and said to them.
“Because I’m not the only one who got stronger in hell.”
“Then Surt… … .”
Cariel, who answered Tharion’s question with a smile, got on the carriage brought by the shadows and headed down the road of fire to the palace of hell.

When Kariel, who had such a splendid return ceremony, moved to stop the Palace of Hell, Sandria’s army retreated to stop him, and it was also known to the Allies that Kariel had returned.
“buy… … Sandria’s forces are retreating!”
Batu, who was wielding a sword with one arm, looked straight ahead at his subordinate’s report.
The golden hawk of the desert retreated back and saw Sandria’s army retreating.
“how… … why… … .”
Someone shouted from afar as Batu was puzzled by Sandria’s sudden retreat.
“The Emperor of Ignit is back!”
“Currently, the elite army led by Emperor Ignit is heading to the Palace of Hell, defeating the Roman army!”
Golan grinned bitterly as he understood how things were going with the officers shouting at the whale whale announcing Kariel’s return.
“… … Thanks to you, I barely escaped annihilation.”
After murmuring like that, Batu, the king of the Golan, looked up at the sky.
The mage Arkan, the main pillar of the Allied Forces, died, and the King of Knights, Brighton, was on the verge of dropping out.
Even he, who barely survived, barely survived with one arm cut off.
Of course, they weren’t the only ones who suffered.
Arkan self-destructed and dragged the earth mage to hell, and the knight king also mobilized the knights as bait to inflict fatal wounds on the shaman of hell.
However, despite their sacrifice, the difference between the forces was evident and the Allied Forces were in danger of annihilation.
In such a situation, the Emperor of Ignit returned.
“Is it luck?”
After muttering like that, Batu looked at the battlefield where thousands of people were lying bleeding.
As a result of this battle, the Allied Forces lost the ability to gather large forces as before.
What remains now depends solely on Ignit’s abilities.
“I still need some help.”
Batu, who muttered a little, formed a pursuit of the few who survived.
Although he was defeated in the war, in order to help the ‘hero’ even a little, he led a sick body and moved to check Sandria.
* * *
By the time Batu’s decision sent some of the Allied forces to the Palace of Hell, the news quickly reached Ignit as well.
“Your Majesty is back.”
It was a short sentence, but the news of Kariel’s return was an important means to boost Ignit’s morale.
“Immediately spread this news throughout the world.”
Looking at the eunuch who hurriedly went outside at Rufiel’s order, he murmured softly.
“after… … If you hold out a little longer… … .”
Although he felt like his blood was drying up every day, the light of hope came to him.
Now that Kariel has returned, the day to step down from this loathsome position is not far away.
Of course, this news also reached the military department, and Ignit’s morale, which had sunk to the bottom, began to soar to the sky.
It is because he did not simply return, but showed overwhelming majesty to the point of crushing the army of hell as soon as he returned.
“You are back!”
Rufiel and Lokhan cheered with emotion on their faces at the same time.
The two commander-in-chiefs, who were trying to pass the work on to each other somehow, cheered at the thought of putting down the enormous burden on their shoulders.
Kariel delivered a message of hope to all of Ignit, instilling hope in some people that they could ease the burden and others that they could survive.
Contrary to the wishes of those who want to return as soon as possible, Kariel focused on getting rid of the palace of hell.
-Why do you seem to be going slow on purpose?
“… … No way.”
Kariel, who flinched at Surt’s sharp question, looked at the palace of hell in the distance.
“You’re all here.”
Surt asked as he looked at Kariel as he turned his horse.
– If you stop that, will you go back right away?
“Well… … Shouldn’t it be the first thing to get rid of the remnants of the past?”
At Kariel’s words, Surt opened his eyes and clicked his tongue.
I had the feeling that it would take longer than expected for Kariel to return to Ignit’s palace.
