Galifa was the head of the Church of Truth of the Dead.
With the authority of an archbishop, he was skilled in necromancy and black magic.
He was confident that with this power he could make the world serve him.
But there was a sky above the sky.
Galifa learned of a place called Eternal Life Church.
The black magic group called the Church of Eternal Life was so numerous that it had people as high as Galifa, and its level was also far superior.
Galifa, who realized his fault, chose submission in order to survive.
The Eternal Church crushed him on the top of his head.
‘But that too will end today. This Galifa… the Galifa you laughed at will succeed in the ritual for pride.’
He has come to perform the last secret rites of a corpse shrouded in mystery. As a result of preliminary confirmation, the power contained in the corpse was enormous.
If only this spiritual body were available, the Church of Eternal Life would never look down on itself again.
However, an accident occurred at the secret ceremony site.
Galifa, who was heading to the camp to perform the ritual, hurriedly reached the place where the corpse was freed from its bonds.
And after checking the scene, he had two thoughts.
The first was the strength of the corpse.
‘also! ‘My guess was right!’
A being who caused devastating damage to the Shinrikyo Church of the Dead with only the animal instincts remaining in its hardened body.
Seeing Gilgil lose his temper and run amok made Galifa feel cold, but at the same time, he was satisfied.
‘I will definitely make the author mine!’
About half of the total strength had already been lost, but it was only because those without talent died anyway.
I didn’t even feel like I had suffered a loss because if I obtained the necromantic body, I would be surrounded by people who wanted power again.
And the second.
‘…Eternal Life Church?’
It was said that his right hand man answered the call from Yeongsaeng Church.
It was definitely a strange thing.
‘They were interested in these little things?’
Since I had submitted to the Church of Yeongsaeng, I had to report everything to the Church.
Otherwise, even if the resurrection of the spirit body succeeded, Gallipa himself could have been eliminated for violating the decree. There was no way the spiritual body could be stronger than the Church Father of the Church of Eternal Life, so it was right to follow the decree.
I thought that even if I reported it anyway, I would only get silence or meaningless answers from them as usual.
Otherwise, the existence of the body would have been hidden until the end.
‘Who the hell are you?’
Galifa stared at Snowfall’s face standing in front of her. His calm and frail expression really seemed like a messenger from the Church of Eternal Life.
“Hehe… This is my first time seeing you…”
Galifa did not know everyone who was active as a messenger of the Church of Eternal Life. But it was my first time hearing of such a young lion.
The man was silent for a moment before speaking.
“Thank you for your hard work, Galifa. “My name is Kinderik, the messenger of our school.”
I swear, Galifa was a name I had never heard before and one I had never even encountered. Because the messenger he interacted with was a different person.
“We apologize for being negligent in providing support as our school was busy dealing with recent troublesome issues. “You asked for support, so I came to the place closest to this place.”
“The original messenger, Mr. Fritton….”
“He is carrying out another mission.”
“I can’t tell you in detail. Rather, this is not the time to have a conversation like this. “The problem continues to grow.”
Flames are spreading throughout the forest.
The island of hell spread out behind the apostle.
Galifa suddenly came to his senses and answered.
“All right. “Let’s solve the problem first.”
“That’s a good decision.”
When the apostle slowly turned around, Galifa, who had a puzzled expression on his face, asked him if he had remembered something.
“But… did you bring your teaching tablet?”
The apostle responded by asking what he was talking about.
“What are you saying? Are you making fun of me for demanding something that is not even in the decree? If so…”
“Heh heh… no. It seems the old man was momentarily mistaken. Please forgive me just this once.”
“Hmm… Well, if you want to apologize like that. Anyway, let’s go together.”
Galifa’s expression turned to that of a demon as he looked at the man who turned around.
I didn’t know why the man pretended to be a messenger of the Church of Eternal Life and was helping the Church of the Dead, but he was definitely a fake.
‘The decree was changed three years ago.’
Lions must carry a school badge to prove their identity. Even if we make a hundred concessions and assume that the messenger could have forgotten and not kept the Gyeongpae, it made no sense for him not to even know its existence.
‘How do I do it… That would be good.’
The power of the necromantic body is great, so we will subdue it with its help and take advantage of the opportunity to eliminate this fraudster as well.
That’s what the clever Galifa decided.
* * *
A choice occurred to Kang Seol earlier.
[The Archbishop of the Church of the Dead, Galifa, requests proof of your identity. How would you respond?]
1. How dare you be so rude to the messenger of our school!
2. Do I really need to prove it to you, Archbishop?
3. How arrogant you are to come out like this. … I’m going to get out of this.
4. There is no such thing as a Gyopae. What is your intention?
Cold sweat broke out from Snowfall’s back.
‘Has the decree changed? I’ve never made anything like a token.’
His Eternal Life Church did not do such troublesome things.
The lions also served everyone simply by showing their presence without having to prove their existence.
‘This is a gamble.’
No matter which option Kang Seol chose, the probability was 50/50.
Either the Gyopae exists or it does not.
“What are you saying? Are you making fun of me for demanding something that is not even in the decree? If so…”
If the Gyopae really exists, Galifa will attack Kangseol. And if it doesn’t exist, I will apologize to Kang Seol.
“Hehe… no. It seems the old man was momentarily mistaken. Please forgive me just this once.”
Fortunately, it seemed to be the latter.
After finishing the conversation, Kang Seol turned around and thought.
‘No, my identity was discovered. It seems the decree has changed.’
I read the fleeting moments of life in Galifa’s eyes.
Although he may have tried to hide it right away, Kang Seol eventually realized that what he had just said was the wrong answer.
‘But if you pretend not to know… you’re planning to take advantage of me. In that case…’
It was rather good.
Because it was the same with snowfall.
Snowfall will now watch over Galifa, and Galifa will watch over snowfall. And in the meantime, Karen had to be defeated as well.
‘Everything will be decided in an instant.’
Kangseol took a deep breath and confirmed Galifa’s ability that emerged within his insight.
[Galifa: Archbishop of the Church of the Truth of the Dead]
Estimated level: 15-20
The head of a group that specializes in training necromancers.
Although his combat ability is not that great, his crowd control and commanding power are superior to that of a necromancer of the same level.
Basic Abilities: [Poison 2] [Corruption and Disease 1] [Free Will Suppression 2] [Mental Pain 1] [Summon Necromancers 3] [Death 1] Special Abilities: [Vortex of Resentment 1] [Night of the Corpse 1
Pa’s abilities were just like that of a rare level boss monster.
Kang Seol went into battle with his information engraved.
Each time the flame rose, a necromancer screamed and melted.
‘It’s really incredible heat.’
The speed at which Karen regained her strength gradually accelerated to the extent that it was a wonder that Karuna was able to endure.
After a while, Karen regained consciousness enough to even speak.
Galifa said as he looked at the sight.
“The situation is not good, Kinderic.”
“First, let’s weaken him.”
Galifa muttered, gathering ominous energy in his hands.
“Hold on tight.”
Karuna gained momentum and faced Karen’s fire.
Every time the sword collided, an explosion occurred as if resonating.
Meanwhile, Galifa completed his magic.
[Ghalifa uses Suppression of Free Will.]
[Karen’s movements are slowed by 30%. Immune to other slowing effects.]
Another magic follows.
[Ghalifa uses Psychic Affliction.]
[Karen’s mind manipulation resistance activates.]
[Karen resists Psychic Affliction.]
“What? Damn it….”
When Galifa’s mental magic didn’t work, he changed his method.
He was aware that he was the one who had to deal damage to Karen while the snowfall summon was holding her.
[Galifa uses the Necromantic Summon.]
[Summons Yon, the corpse-eating scarecrow.]
A big, bulky scarecrow wearing a crow mask has appeared.
“Go go! “Give him a critical hit!”
Yon made a crow sound and approached Karen in a dull manner.
Karen’s movements gradually became more precise.
Her animal-like movements were now beginning to resemble those of a knight.
It’s been quite a while since Karuna was outnumbered, but with Yon joining, she was barely able to maintain her status.
‘I don’t have much time.’
Snowfall hoped that Galifa would land an effective blow within it. Galifa also felt this and told Kangseol.
“A spirit without an owner does not last long in the first place. “It may seem like your strength is getting stronger now, but your corpse is bound to rot.”
“What do you want to say?”
“It’s quite a waste, but I have a spell that suits me. “Please buy me some time.”
In fact, I had nothing to do but buy time and sleep.
Karuna was also at his limit in his half-moon state, and had no choice but to reveal his power in order not to suffer in vain.
Kang Seol shouted.
Karuna’s light, which was dying out in front of the flames, suddenly rose up in a gigantic manner.
[Karunaga enters the third stage of the moonlight full moon.]
When the flame and moonlight met, sparks erupted.
As Karen’s gray pupils faced it, little by little, their color began to return.
[Karen uses Burning.]
As the gray armor flashed, the area where it passed was filled with flames.
Karuna accepted Karen’s attack as an orthodox. However, the shock had no choice but to stumble greatly.
‘This is a big deal! I used my powers.’
Just the martial arts she used was difficult, but now other abilities have been opened up.
Considering the numerous abilities she had, it seemed like the victory in this fight was now in her hands.
She is now starting to speak.
“Have you come to your senses, Karen?”
The gray knight gave Karuna a faint look.
“Why didn’t you come back…”
“Karen! “I… I…”
The conflict that followed was hopeless.
Karuna is now far away from Karen’s attack.
“Why didn’t you come back? Why didn’t you keep your promise?”
That was then.
Galifa’s cries filled the charred space.
“It is complete! Hahahaha!”
Now, the few remaining necromancers and even the fat necromancers who were Galifa’s right-hand men were swept away by the magic.
“Kwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa just alone? Whoa! only of of of whom?
“I will kill you! Old man! You you… ugh!”
The sight of a living person being turned into a piece of meat was truly a sight that could not be seen with the n.a.k.e.d eye. Galifa’s magic came from the sacrifice of others.
‘He’ll kill you!’
Kang Seol did not feel the slightest humanity in him.
To offer up an ally rather than an enemy as a magical sacrifice.
I don’t know if Galifa didn’t feel those gazes at all or if she pretended not to notice, but she completed the spell calmly.
“Take it, you monster! Hahahaha!”
A huge energy shot out from his palm.
[Galifa’s special ability: Whirlwind of Resentment is activated.]
[If you are hit by the vortex, you will become corrupted.]
