There was a strange silence on the battlefield.
Snowfall suddenly appeared as a shadow itself.
And even the blind hunter Malachus appeared.
“All shadow summoners must die by my hand.”
“Everyone has something they wish for, so I will respect that.”
“… I will liberate all shadows from you. “That is the way for them.”
“I respect that too. “Now let me tell you my wishes.”
Snowfall said, looking at Malachus.
“I will crush you who made Mirei like that.”
“You can’t beat me. “How many Shadow Summoners do you think I’ve hunted in total?”
“Well, it’s something I’m not interested in at all. And that’s not me. So it’s meaningless.”
“… You will regret your arrogance.”
Malachus must have activated the artifact, so his appearance disappeared in an instant. However, there was still a slight trace of him, so we could tell that he still existed in this space.
[You are in the area of influence in a place without light.]
[You are a shadow.]
[All abilities are reduced by 20%.]
‘There was a reason to be confident.’
Malachus didn’t provoke Snowfall and Jamard for nothing.
‘Even if 20% is cut… it’s okay because my abilities are overflowing.’
If one stone is cut from Mount Tai, does it cease to be Mount Tai?
Snowfall was still an overwhelming force.
[Hound Dir uses a sneak attack.]
[If you do not block accurately, you will receive 50% additional damage.]
‘That hound also had abilities.’
I could have looked at it with insight now, but I decided not to.
Dir, startled by Snowfall’s fist, stopped attacking and retreated.
Perhaps, if he had been hit squarely by this attack, the fight could have ended just like that.
The shadow hand moved exactly in the direction where the arrow was flying.
Papa pa paak!
No matter how many arrows were fired, they could not touch a single speck of snow.
“You lost. Malachus.”
“… I admit that you are strong. But it is too early to declare victory.”
The forest became quiet again and a message came to Kangseol’s mind.
[Malachus takes the Elixir of Vengeance.]
[Malachus gains 30% additional stats when attacking shadow elements.] [
When Malachus attacks shadow elements, critical damage increases by 50%. ]
“Is the drug the only thing you came up with?”
“It’s effective when dealing with people like you. “It’s already been proven several times.”
“If you keep bringing up old stories, it will only become clear that your judgment was wrong.”
[Dir’s Necklace of Suppressed Wildness is removed.]
[Dir receives the effects of Concentrated Feralism.]
[Part of the damage is offset by Wildness.]
[This lasts until all of the Wildness value is used. ]
[Fear is removed.]
“Let’s stick together somewhere properly.”
Snowfall or Jamard bumped his fists.
There was a thundering sound and his body slowly began to burn.
[Switch to volcano stance.]
[All attacks ignite flames.]
[An explosion occurs at the point of impact.]
[Continuous: Transferring flames are applied.]
[All things that come in contact with the target of the flames are affected. There is a high probability that the fire will spread.]
[Continuous: Heat and warmth are applied.]
[The damage the fire inflicts on you is reduced by 100% and the damage inflicted on the opponent increases by 50%.]
Snowfall is a fiercely burning bomb . It has been done.
Along with the sound of Dir rushing, a sound like a bow was also heard. Now Malachus seemed to be launching an all-out attack, ignoring any concerns that Dir might be hit.
[Hound dog Dir uses Fierce Struggle.]
[Reduces damage received by 50% for a short period of time and recovers quickly from impact.]
[If the opponent is bleeding, more blood will bleed.]
A beast with no fear removed. It was like a natural disaster.
Because it brought with it a sense of helplessness and the cruelty of being unable to avoid it.
A short slap.
It struck Dir in the mouth.
However, Dir quickly recovered and turned his head again to bite Snowfall’s neck.
Papa pa paak!
As I held the arrow with my shadow hand, I felt a different strength than before. This tremendous power, transmitted from the elasticity of the bow, gave the feeling that if the arrow was allowed to attack even once, it would not end well.
“Let’s solve it first and then tell me.”
“joy! “It will be soon.”
Snowfall’s body, which was wrestling with a larger hunting dog, suddenly changed its posture.
His shoulder rested squarely beneath Dir’s chin.
“Gotcha, you b*stard.”
Jamad, whose body was moving like a snowflake, rushed towards the beautiful tree while carrying Dir on his back.
The shock ended only after the entire Areumdri tree fell and Dir, who was thrown down, broke another tree.
A fire broke out at the point where they hit.
“Now… oh no!”
However, Dir’s overflowing vitality quickly revived and rushed towards Snowfall.
[Hound Dir uses shadow sneak attack.]
[Disappears when ready to attack.] [Appears
[If the opponent does not catch Dir, 50% additional damage is inflicted along with bleeding. Receive.]
“It’s not an ordinary dog!”
“I guess so. This dog….”
Once again, Dir’s jaw was struck by Snowfall’s fist.
But even so, Dir did not give up.
Those eyes were shiny red.
“Because it’s a shadow.”
“Hey hunter. “Don’t you think it’s contradictory?”
Malachus’ seemingly agitated arrow was clearly visible to Snowfall.
[Malachus’ neutralizing shot fails to hit the target.]
Snowfall’s fist blew Dir away once again.
The area around where the fight between Dir and Snowfall took place was a mess of broken trees.
“Aren’t you the one who manipulates the shadows as they please?”
“Shut up! Dir… Dir is my one and only friend….”
“So that’s it. “Did you forcefully bring Dir back from the dead?”
“don’t do it! Don’t say that!”
[Malachus uses Real Pain.]
[The arrow deals true damage for a short period of time.]
There was no point in continuing to shoot arrows as they would not hit.
At that time, Malachus suddenly came running out from the forest holding a dagger.
Was there nothing else left for him?
It was quite a conversion move and the speed was so fast that others would not have been able to react, but it did not work on Kang Seol.
“Hot… hot… hot!”
The snowfall grabbed both Malachus’ and Dir’s necks at the same time.
He threw Dir with all his might into the distance and then knocked Malachus to the ground.
“Are you kidding me, such a contradictory person, that you dare to judge a shadow?”
“Dir is my only friend.”
“so? Did you bring a dead hunting dog back to life? For your selfishness?”
“… Without Dir, I have nothing left. “Because… everything was taken away by you… all I know is… your shadow summoning technique.”
“That’s funny. What a fool you are to judge the Shadow Summoning Art. “Do you know what you did?”
Malachus muttered while looking at the ceiling.
“It’s wrong… I know. “I already knew.”
“When you took my parents, my eyes, and my life, Dir remained by my side. “You became a light to me who had lost my light.”
“After Dir died, when I came to my senses, Dir was next to me. “I… performed this terrible technique without even realizing it.”
“That’s when I realized. “That the Shadow Summoning Art… is not wrong… that it is not a magic created with such terrible thoughts to use shadows as servants.”
Shadow Hunter Malachus.
His answer was here.
“… It’s a longing. It’s a technique created by longing for someone. This technique was not a cursed technique or anything. “The meaning was only up to the caster.”
“Even though you realized that, why did you hunt the summoners?”
“Because I can’t atone. … Because you can’t wash it off.”
“You crazy b*stard…”
Since he can’t wash away the filth, he immerses his head deep in the filth. That was how Malachus lived his life.
“Dir come here….”
A large hound approached Malachus’ side.
Malachus was already dying.
My throat burned black and my voice gradually cracked and became faint.
“That’s nice… Don’t be surprised, we’ll fall asleep together.”
“We are going to a world where no one is bothered and no one suffers.”
Malachus had the last word.
“I am… a villain.”
Dir fell asleep by Malachus’ side and soon dispersed like dust when his master died.
Malachus died a villain until the end.
[Blind Malachus has been defeated.]
[The villain’s inventory has been created.]
[Adventure objectives have been met.]
[The adventure can be completed when the time limit expires or you select a reward.]
[The Hound Dir has been defeated. .]
[Additional rewards are given.]
Snowfall looked back.
Mirai came squirming.
“Haha… you b*stard. “It was really contradictory to the end.”
“Miray. “Are you okay?”
“No, I think I’m going to die…”
I said it as a joke, but it wasn’t a joke.
she fell down
“Ugh… what if death had come a little slower. “Then I would have been able to see more of you.”
“I know, it’s disappearing, right?”
Her limbs were disappearing from the extremities. Just like when Malachus’ hound Dir disappeared.
The death just happens very slowly.
“The incomplete extension of life ends here. Haha… And now that I think about it, maybe death was waiting for me.”
“… “What are you talking about?”
“In the end, it turned out I was right, right? So, strangely enough, there are no regrets left about being in a difficult situation.”
“Do you know that, Snowman? “We have two ways.”
“On one side is a well-worn path that lords over them to bring out the full power of the shadows. The other side is a rough path that no one has yet taken… attempting to coexist with shadows. Which side are you…”
Mirei couldn’t finish the question.
Because Kang Seol gave the answer with unwavering eyes.
She welcomed those eyes with the brightest smile in the world.
She took out a cigarette from her pocket and lit it.
After taking a deep breath, she spoke.
“Sodin… thank you for being patient with me. “We did it.”
“The 300th… no, the last record of Mirei, the greatest genius in the universe. I proved it, Gregory. “These are the last footprints I leave in the world.”
Her gaze became increasingly cloudy.
“Go… go and show the world you… no, us. “We…”
I couldn’t continue, as if my words were lost.
“We can coexist….”
Instead of the sound of her words, only the scent of the cigarette remained.
This is a place where even justice goes astray.
It was Pandea.
Mirei, the shadow summoner who will change the world, and Malachus, the twisted shadow hunter, died here today.
[The helper ‘Shadow Summoner Mirei’ has died.]
[The helper will not appear in future adventures.]
Only Kang Seol, the person who witnessed their deaths, remained and stayed in place for a long time.
