The Returning Supervillain Raises a Hero chapter 56
Episode 56. End of the Pledge
With the mana in her body, Char was able to find those who had pledged to him after death on his own.
When I arrived at the command barracks, the waiting wizards looked at me with anxious faces, and I put the results of the negotiations into my mouth.
“The war is over.”
“Our purpose is not to end the war!”
The reason for the rebellion was the monopoly of resources in the tower of the higher wizards, restraint of going out, and violence.
The reason I didn’t even mention these at the negotiating table was because I didn’t have to.
“do not worry. It will be resolved soon.”
As she looked at Saya and said that, no one spoke openly, although they made a dissatisfied expression to see if other people recognized that her mood had changed.
– One, I found it.
After leaving the command room, Char went up to the roof and stood in front of an iron pole that anyone could see.
“Isn’t it great?”
Lee Go-gang and Sam-sik, who had been monitoring Zacher all night, returned and glanced at Char.
“both? Or just him?”
-… I’ll check.
– I curse you… , Dark Nexus. Even if this body disappears, I will become a ghost and curse you!
I had no intention of listening to his nonsense, so I ignored him, and he started to memorize the spell even more.
I pulled out the pole and kicked it, and my skull rumbled rough on the floor. The order was canceled and even cracking was heard.
As if he had suffered a lot during the night, there were traces of magic all over his skull.
– Be ashamed. jacker.
When Char criticized him, it seemed that Zacher had sent him a thought, but it was too faint to understand.
According to Char, very few of the advanced wizards can use Soul Break, a spell that destroys souls.
But look at our two meals. It destroys the soul just by breaking the skull and absorbing it.
“The two of us did well. uh?”
I wanted to do a dance of thanks again this time, but somehow the behavior is a bit unnatural.
“Are you okay?”
His whole body trembled like a person who had a seizure, and at some point his bones began to turn red.
Char is very surprised to see if there is something he can guess, and Dushik strikes a shield around him.
– Evolution. Since it is an important moment, we will block external access.
Lock the door leading up to the roof and raise a stone wall with a spell to block it.
“Do skeletons evolve?”
-Old books say that when the undead evolves, it scatters mana in that form. It’s the first time I’ve actually seen it.
If you simply think about it. The act of eating can be said to be the work of converting food into energy.
If the soul is a kind of food for Dusik, then the amount of energy that a wizard the size of a Zacher has would be enormous.
The convulsions stopped slowly, and a patina-like glare lit up inside the black skull.
And at first, he raised his arms to both sides and danced.
“Thank you? OK. Alright, so stay still.”
If you move, Unforce also moves with you, making you dizzy.
[Species: Orc Skeleton General -> Orc Skeleton General]
【Talents: Valor (A), Morale Boost (B), Evil (C), Ice Skill (F)】
[Description: The lucky orc chieftain who met the contractor well, proud of building a contractor’s home, honored by receiving Black Fang, joy from defeating a competitor in the sulfur zone, and the enemy who recently invaded the estate: by a group of lizard mages. Some land has been taken away, and the body has just become stronger and has learned new characteristics and is ecstatic.]
Dusik was always nice even if he didn’t say anything, so there was no need to check his status with Unforce.
The amount of stat increase along with the promotion of the tribe to general is huge, considering it has been open for a long time. In addition, although it was a small amount, the potential has risen.
‘Is that because of that?’
A new window pops up while focusing attention on the characteristic of evil.
【Evil food: Absorbs part of the energy of the ingested substance into the body, often breaking through the limit.】
【Description: Characteristics of Dusik during his lifetime. In a poor environment, they had to eat anything. Even if it is the bones and flesh of carrion.]
He must have suffered quite a bit when he lived as an orc chief. … I didn’t give Undead food in the beginning, but that’s why I’ve awakened this skill again.
I tried to ignore the feeling of a little bit of guilt and put another newly learned characteristic into my eyes.
【Ice Magic: Magic that deals with ice.】
[Description: Obtained by consuming the soul of a senior mage of the Necro School, Zacher. It was improved to fit the orc civilization. Range, distance, and strength increase according to your magic power, proficiency, and imagination.]
“Would you like some bingsu?”
Little rattle, rattle… , rattle!
We danced again this time, and there were mixed movements that were very slightly different from when we were happy.
At one point, Dusik pointed to the corner of the roof with his middle finger, and there was a narrow ice sheet. As soon as I step on the end, it breaks right away. It’s not very slippery either.
To be honest, I can’t use it in practice. Well, there are still a lot of abilities that are affected, so if I can implement it in a huge area later, it will be a little different.
After reading my disappointment, Dusik, restless, clapped his hands and called out Black Fang.
They were originally dark-colored children, but under the influence of Dusik, they turned into completely black bones. The glare is also green.
When I checked with Unforce, each individual’s stats increased by about 10-20%, and there was a characteristic called ‘Falling Water Effect (F)’ in common.
The effect is that the two diets absorb the energy through the groin, and they share the remaining energy.
“You guys, are you listening to Dusik well?”
Brown eyes, wild poles, gadget geeks.
Faint thoughts are flying. Seeing everything as positive, I don’t think Dusik behaves harshly.
“Be stronger, so you can drive out the Lizard Mages.”
Guys nodding their skulls one by one.
– I’m sorry we were chatting, but we found another person.
Char slips between the dancing Dusik and Black Fang and tells me.
Char raised his white finger and pointed to where Zacher’s skull was just before. When I tilt my head, I move my hand to the side slightly.
“Well then. It seemed so.”
When he picks up Boono’s skull, he shouts with an earnest voice.
– Please save me. I will do anything. Anything, please… .
“Tell me one thing that you are better than Char as a wizard. Then save me.”
-… … .
– Whoa, ah, no!
While Dusik, who had absorbed Buno’s skull as deliciously as chewing a bone, performed another dance move, Char found a person who took part in the posthumous pact with stronger magical powers.
He was staying in the Odd Skull Building, and as Char and I broke through the door to his lab, he sighed in a space surrounded by books and lab bottles.
“Would you mind waiting for a moment?”
He was the first wizard to come down from the upper floors in hopes of a golden tip.
The culprits are the ones Char appeared on the middle floor and moved quickly.
“It’s difficult for more than 10 minutes.”
That’s how long it takes to find one. Don’t waste time dealing with it before finding the next person.
“That is enough. We just have to wait for the results.”
Five minutes passed, and he chuckled while looking at the color-changing liquid in the lab bottle.
He ends his life by reciting a spell on his own.
It’s disgusting that he died so easily, but for the first time, he fed Dusik with his corpse to annihilate his soul.
-Wait. Would you like to see this?
Char hands me a lab bottle with a liquid that has changed color.
– A liquid that can change the color of the undead. It seems that he was a follower of Dead Red Skull. I think he was trying to imitate Scolor… .
I don’t know when I’m alive, but I’m not interested in those who are already dead. When I didn’t say anything, Char sprinkled the liquid on the spot where he had collapsed on his own, and carefully prepared himself to collect the research data.
– Wait a minute, ah… .
“Why do you need more time?”
-no. Go to the rebel camp.
* * *
The man Char had pointed out was lying on the bed with a pale complexion without a single blood.
“Are you sure?”
Is it that a rebel leader and friend participated in the posthumous pact?
“Are you okay?”
The two wizards escorting him aim at me and Char with their wands without knowing the English language.
“Do not approach any further!”
What is more surprising than Hydra’s participation in the posthumous pact.
“Are your eyes a knot hole? He’s dead.”
“You’re talking nonsense, Mr. Park. I’ll be quiet, so go check it out.”
“Do not move!”
One creeps, puts his hand under the hydra’s nose, and his expression hardens in real time. And hold the neck and wrist by the side. Contemplating, he shook his head at his colleague.
“… Is it yours?”
“Does it make sense? This is my first time here.”
The escort wizards were surprised to see that Dusik was eating the Hydra, but did not attack.
I saw a letter under the disheveled pillow, and when I pulled it out, it was written on the top line:
[If you are reading this letter, I am already dead. sha. I hated you and loved you at the same time. I joined the posthumous pact out of hate, and I helped you out of love.]
It was written verbosely. After flirting with his ex-girlfriend, he seemed to apologize because he thought this was not the case.
It must have been a big decision and sacrifice in its own way, but from the standpoint of Char, who was rotting in the lower layers, it would only sound like an excuse.
-… … .
The sight of the seal being lifted and the blue light lingering all over her body was very mysterious, but the complex emotions conveyed by thoughts made me think that I should give her some alone time, even though I don’t pay much attention to it. I went out with two escort wizards.
It was the next morning that Char was standing in front of me with his emotions cleared up.
* * *
– You must get up.
“Um, um. sha?”
– The Necroma Tower Middle Class Alliance is protesting.
-The Middle-Level Alliance was launched this morning, and their demand is one. Repair the machinery that creates the upper portals.
After hearing that, I got dressed and opened the door.
“Oh, sir, be surprised. Maniac Velvet. What’s going on here?”
Velvet with a bushy beard and eyes wide open.
“You will die if you go out like this.”
“What are you talking about?”
“You said you refused that Gweil repaired the engine?”
“Who is Gweil?”
“The wizard from the upper floors who came to the negotiating room! I mean, Gweil posted a video of him negotiating with you!”
I’m serious about who isn’t a magician. record it?
“When is the upper level exam?”
“Why all of a sudden? Up to two weeks, so it will be open soon.”
“First of all, tell everyone to focus on the exam. I will open the upper portal.”
“you? By what means.”
“I don’t know about that. tell me so I need some more sleep.”
“hey. Boy, boy!”
I wake up people and make a fuss with nothing.
