The Returning Supervillain Raises a Hero - Chapter 57
The Returning Supervillain Raises a Hero chapter 57
Episode 57. Top floor
About a hundred wizards standing with pickets shouted in unison at the main gate of Odd Skull.
“Return our blood!”
“Give it back, give it back!”
“Fix the portal!”
“Fix it, fix it!”
The door opens wildly and the boy they’ve been waiting for, Dark Boy, walks out and sits on the stairs.
When Char, who had regained mana, sat next to him as a secretary, the voices of the wizards subsided.
Nam Man-hyuk opened his mouth as he looked at the middle-class wizard who shouted the most passionately from the front.
“Are you confident that you will pass the exam?”
“Well, of course not!”
“Char, when did you start?”
– Judging from the rapid increase in the mana rushing into the middle layer, it seems to be around an hour.
“Did you hear me?”
The crowd of wizards, who had been buzzing, immediately threw out pickets and sat on the side of the road, training their magic in their own way.
“Come inside and do it. On the road, then, isn’t it a nuisance?”
Odd Skull, who was watching from behind, brought the wizards in, brought them juice and received a small amount of money.
“You are doing a good job.”
“You have to earn like this. Thanks to someone, this month is in the red.”
“… The requisition was ordered by the Hydra, so go and tell him.”
“where should we go? No body or grave?”
Now, four days after the war, rumors are circulating in the middle class that Nam Man-hyuk ate the Hydra’s body.
Even if Dusik absorbed it, Dark Boy didn’t deny it because it wasn’t wrong at all.
“Bring this to that table.”
Nam Man-hyuk quickly leaves the seat as Odd Skull handed him a drink on a tray.
After spending some time serving, a voice echoed in the sky, and a small spear appeared in front of all the wizards.
[Start the upper level test.]
[Please use the ‘fusion magic’ you developed in the box below.]
[Pass Criteria 1: Is the coincidence rate with other magic less than 70%?]
[Pass Criteria 2: Did you mix two or more types of magic?]
[Passing Criteria 3: Is it helpful to the Necro School?]
[Remaining time: 59 minutes 55 seconds]
At the beginning of the test, Nam Man-hyuk created a Summon Acid Zombie in a black box under the window and waited for a while.
[86% match rate with ‘Summon Acid Zombie’]
[Description: This is an existing fusion magic. You can keep trying for the remaining time.]
-ah. Someone must have passed with that magic.
to rot. There must have been other poor people with a talent for poison besides me.
“Are you done?”
-Yes, passed with in vitro mana cores. However, it seems that the portal does not open as expected.
Passes are popping up all over the place, but I see some wizards shouting at me why the portal doesn’t open.
– Rather, Dark Nexus. How about making some fusion magic?
I would love to, but how long have you been learning magic before you can create? There isn’t anything that comes to mind.
“Do you have any ideas?”
-There are things I have been thinking about since I first met the Dark Nexus.
“Oh, tell me.”
After hesitating for a moment, Char opened his mouth as he touched a scrap metal wand.
-How about putting poison on the area?
“What? Is that okay?”
-Available. Like this.
Char spread his arms to expand the territory, but nothing changed. So let’s look at it with questions.
-Sorry, it’s been too long since I’ve been able to adjust the range. Let’s narrow the scope now.
The developed area was beyond the lobby of Odd Skull, so it was in a state that could not be recognized with the naked eye.
I could feel the mana density rising gradually, and when it became a size that only enveloped me and Char, the weight of being in the water was felt throughout the area.
– The mana inside the realm can be converted into the desired attribute by the wizard. like this.
A pleasant breeze blows through my hair as I lightly hit the ground with my scrap metal stick.
– Mixed charm and wind attributes. It has the effect of breaking the opponent’s will.
A passing decision appeared whether the black box of the spear that appeared in front of Char was also included in the realm.
-This is not an easy technique, so the wizard who has just developed the realm is given the most confident attribute among the magic he has learned.
“Then it’s not a fusion, is it?”
-The original realm is created under the influence of the caster’s mana, so it is also treated as magic.
[Remaining time: 31:12]
I am, without a doubt, a poison. I’ve been experimenting with various poisons, and the higher the acidity, the better the compatibility with me.
Char asks in amazement when he takes a capsule the size of a yogurt bottle from Kachu and throws it on the floor to break it.
“What Weiss was studying. I kept it because I threw it away.”
-If you write… , Are you a high-level wizard who experimented with the crossbreeding of green-spotted octopus and red-eyed pufferfish? I heard it failed.
“uh. But I made an egg.”
Hearing the names of the two animals famous for their acid spray and poison in their body, Char and the wizards around them fall far away from me.
“The yangbans called wizards are scared.”
To be honest, I’m also a hustler, but I believe in Char’s words that there is no precedent for the realm to harm the caster and pour in mana.
-You must use the poison created now as a catalyst to expand the area.
A dark purple sphere that spawns in the air. I dragged it to the front of my chest and grabbed it with my hands.
Someone’s screams from afar. It didn’t hurt that much, probably because of the paralysis of the puffer fish venom. My hands tingle.
The liquid scatters drop by drop, encircling me and spinning. Afterwards, a cubic mucosa with a diameter of about 5 m was formed.
-Are you okay? You can’t see the inside here.
It’s a little purple, but I can see well outside. It seems to play a role like a magic mirror.
[Remaining time: 16:50]
“it’s okay. Let’s blow some magic this way.”
Dark fire the size of a skull three times centered on me was shot from all directions. The moment Char’s magic enters my realm, it turns green.
That was the only change, so I hurriedly fell to the floor to avoid the four fireballs.
“Because you do it in moderation.”
-sorry. This time, the Dark Nexus will use magic on me.
Still, he had guessed how to use this area, so he fired a dark fire straight to chastise Char.
The green fireball created by my fingertips maintained its color even after it left my area, and it exploded weakly when it touched Char’s open shield.
Then, as if tossing a liquid monster at the wall, it flowed down and turned into smoke at some point.
-It will be lethal to those who do not have toxic resistance.
When Char brought the tip of his scrap wand to the green haze, it melted without any warning.
The poison lingers for about 5 seconds and then disappears, which, according to Char, has strong toxicity at the expense of the holding time.
-Right now, that type of area is called an enchantment area. Any magic you use will be cast with effects similar to the one you use now. You can create various variables.
As a villain who is always chased, the more variables that make the hero panic, the better.
While I was contemplating some treasury numbers that applied the realm, Char suddenly pushed a scrap metal staff into my realm.
-As expected, the current Dark Nexus realm is also full of the same poison as just before. There is no such thing as a means of self-defense. But the mana consumption will be huge, can you afford it?
In fact, it gets dizzy from the moment you shoot the Dark Fire. As soon as I unlocked the realm and took a breath, the wizards approached me with a different face than just an hour ago, and poured out questions.
How did you do it? When did the area begin to develop? Who has the idea of using poison as a catalyst?
I replaced their curiosity with an answer in one word.
“I did what Char Natalia told me to do. I don’t know anything.”
The heads of the wizards who turn quickly. Char looks at me with her eyes glazed over, then smiles awkwardly and sits next to me.
– Dark Nexus. Go upstairs. Come on.
I took out the key from my inner pocket for Char, who even pushed back the wizards who were clinging to Char while doing a body slam.
[Remaining time: 05:01]
[Artifact to replace the portal, master key detection.]
[Ask the deputy top owner.]
[Are you sure you want to send successful candidates?]
“Top owner? Let’s upload the successful candidates.”
[Passed applicants are requested to enter the created portal promptly.]
Terrified by the mana being sucked out in an instant, I tried to release the key, but Char quickly grabbed my hand and supplies mana to the key instead.
– You must not move!
Char said that he was in a very dangerous state right now, and warned again not to move even a little as the mana circuit could be torn off.
Thanks to that, I could barely breathe and only held the key for about 5 minutes. Naturally, the portal in front of us was closed, and I was exhausted and scattered on the floor.
“Uh-huh, it felt like I was standing under a waterfall. What happened.”
– Indirect mana shower. Since you’ve experienced it, you won’t have to suffer from a narrow mana circuit in the future. It will also help with multiple chants. Congratulations.
I knew there was such a thing as a mana shower through Magic, but even that was dangerous, so I told him not to try it until I reached a certain level. But it’s going to be something like this.
[Ask the deputy top owner.]
[Do you want to visit the top floor?]
“What do you do?”
Char looked at my message window and nodded.
– Let’s go.
A window floating in the air folds and unfolds like a scroll. There was a pattern similar to the magic circle I saw when I first opened the lower floor, but a bit more complicated.
When I put the key in the center and turned it, a door that looked like a snake was lured on the door frame appeared and opened with a squeaking sound.
– Is there any problem?
As I stood still, Char approached me puzzled. I leaned slightly toward her as she approached me and stretched out my arms inside the door.
-… Yes. Thank you. Dark Nexus.
The first thing that caught my eye when entering with the reliable Char was a red carpet and a large chandelier. And a gigantic photosphere located right in the center.
[Welcome to the top floor.]
[I am a tower core. The first top owner called me Bradley.]
[If you are curious about me, please read the booklet next to it.]
The booklet, like a washing machine manual, contained detailed instructions on how to use the Bradley and precautions. Roughly speaking, the tower core is in charge of testing and promotion inside the tower, and only the tower owner and the tower owner’s deputy can control it.
‘Caution, during the trial period, if the master’s mana is insufficient, he may die. If it wasn’t for Char, I’d be dead.’
[Ask the two of you.]
[Currently, the top position is vacant.]
[Who is going to take the top-junior exam?]
“Of course Sha-ji.”
– This is the Dark Nexus.
We looked at each other for a moment and I spoke first.
“It was our contract to make you a topjur.”
-If you’re talking about that partner contract, I can sign it even if I’m not the top owner.
“No, I am not qualified to be the top owner in the first place. How long have you been into magic?”
– That’s enough for me to teach you.
“You are greedy.”
-… … .
“Is it because of the will of Hydra?”
– Not necessarily.
“don’t worry. Even if you don’t like it, I’ll bring you up to the sun when the time is right. The interior of the tower is being cleaned well.”
It has been decades since communication with the outside was suppressed. I remember seeing at first glance that it was written in Hydra’s letter that it was necessary to hire an outside person and put him in a high-ranking position, even if he was not a wizard.
I understand. so there is no need For me, to prepare for the invasion of Gblin, I have to make full use of them.
If you go out and ask Richett to come up with a plan to revive an old small business and send it to you, it’s a problem that will be resolved by itself.
‘The Central Mage Association is also pushing the Necro School.’
“The top owner is Char Natalia.”
He handed over the key and said so, and Bradley scribbled out a large letter saying Accept.
-All right. In that case, I will designate the Dark Nexus as the honorary deputy lord with the authority of the top lord.
[I will accept it.]
