Okay, so after looking at the polls and the comments you guys have left me, I've decided to compromise and put both chapter links and the entire story into 1 page. It'll take a bit of time before the rest of the books are condensed into 1 page, but I'll try to do them ASAP.

Book 3: Step 4 – The Fourth Step in Rescuing a Princess: “A must have for rescue missions – a cool-looking bad guy”

*Disclaimer note: This is merely a translation of the original Chinese version. I do not claim any part in the creation of the original story.

After travelling for two weeks, we once again set up camp for the night. But unlike previous relaxed nights, there seemed to be a rather tense atmosphere around the group tonight.

“We’ve been travelling at speeds unmatched by anyone else, yet why haven’t we caught up to them yet?” Michael demanded, finally expressing his pent up suspicions to Ann. Even though they were childhood friends, his tone sounded rather short and impatient.

As a knight, Leaf has always upheld the noble code that ‘the lady is always right’. But from the fact that he wasn’t even bothering to help defend Ann, I could tell that he, too, had his suspicions. And as for me…… well, I haven’t spoken a word for the past three days, so everyone’s used to me keeping quiet.

Faced with the majority’s suspicions, Ann muttered “Give me a minute” before walking into the forest. After a while, she walked back out and announced, “We are already very close to them, but I do not know the exact distance.”

Looks like the object to track the missing princess is on her person. But it seems that she doesn’t want us to know what it was exactly, hence, her walking into the forest and avoiding us.

Michael was still a little unhappy getting such a vague answer. Seeing that, Ann hastened to assure him. “We really are very close, Michael. We’ll be able to catch up with them in no time!”

Michael nodded, reluctantly dropping the topic.

That night when everyone was asleep, I kept tossing and turning, this way and that…… Urgh! I just can’t sleep! But this isn’t very surprising. After all, I had been sleeping for 24 hours straight and had only just woken up a few hours ago. If I actually did manage to fall asleep I would have to reconsider the fact that I might actually be related to a pig!

After tossing and turning restlessly in bed, I decided to give up on sleeping and crawled out the tent. After sleeping so much these days, I should go out and exercise a bit, or else if I were to continue on in this way-sleeping and eating and sleeping and eating after sleeping…… you get it – it might result in an irreversible outcome…… I might gain weight!! Oh, the horror!

Michael who was currently on his night shift turned back to look at me. I smiled at him before walking into the forest. His gaze followed my progress across the camp coldly, but he did not bother to stop me and ask as to my intentions. Guess he really, really looks down on me, huh?

I walked into the forest, and after using my mage sight to make sure that there was no one around, I took out a dragon shaped badge. I slapped it onto my chest while calling out softly, “Dragon’s Holy Robe, in the name of the dragon’s successor, I order you to activate!”

A tight black outfit instantly wrapped around my body, spreading from my chest to the rest of my body; the lower half of my face and the more vulnerable parts of my body were covered with silver scaly armour. It was then that I noticed that even the silver parts did not show up in the dark, instead it seemed to blend into the dark. When I looked down at myself, I couldn’t see anything and for a moment I thought that my body had disappeared!


“I know I had told you not to speak up without good reason, but just forget about it,” I said with no small amount of exasperation. If I could even sense it when it was ‘speechless’, ordering the robe to remain quiet would be pointless.

‘Yes, Master.’

After that, I began walking around, looking for the tallest tree I could find before proceeding to climb it. After changing into the Dragon’s holy Robe, tree climbing had become as easy as pie for me. So without too much effort, I soon made it to the highest branch of the tree.

I looked down to observe the surrounding landscape and features before turning to look up into the sky and noted the positions of the constellations. I then climbed back down and began drawing in the ground the positions of the landscape and stars I had noted earlier.

‘I was right,’ I laughed grimly……

‘Master, someone is using mage sight to spy on you.’

I was startled by this news. All this time it was me who spied on others, yet now someone is spying on me?

I hurriedly asked the robe, “Which direction is the person spying on me from?”

‘This humble servant does not know. Master, the person has recalled back his mage sight.’

‘He’s recalling his mage sight back so quickly?’ After thinking about it I deduced that it must have been Leaf. As he was an archer he would more or less have received some training on mage sight. I must have woken him up earlier when I got up, and just now he was only looking for me. As my holy element aura is extremely strong, he would have located me immediately and hence recalled his mage sight the moment he found me.

Alright, now that my business is done it’s about time for me to get back.

I was about to return to the campsite, but when I thought of Leaf and how he would still remember to search around with his mage sight despite having just woken up, I felt a twinge of guilt. Maybe I should do a search of my own around the place and make sure that there wasn’t anything dangerous around us? If not, I would feel really guilty as I climb onto Leaf’s back tomorrow morning.

I took a deep breath and slowly extended my mage sight to their very limits……

I suddenly stiffened before turning to look in a direction. Not too far away from me there was something with a super-mega-strong dark element aura. I had only ever felt such strong dark aura coming from a Death Knight-Roland. (Even though Pink’s dark aura should be higher than Roland’s, she typically chooses to hide her aura……)

‘Could that be the princess’s kidnapper?’ As I thought back to the Queen’s request, I wondered if it had been a coincidence or if the Queen had known that our opponent was a dark creature-the type that warriors are worst at dealing with-and had therefore insisted on Leaf and I joining in the mission?

But other than the dark creature I could also sense another being with extremely strong wind elements beside it. The person seems to be a wind mage.

I frowned when a thought of doubt flashed through my mind. “Is it just me or has my mage sight seemingly improved?”

When I had just taken over the title of Sun Knight, the level of holy aura on me had been so strong that it had drowned out the other elements; I could hardly sense any other elements…… except for the opposing dark aura, of course. But recently, I don’t seem to have to exert as much effort to be able to sense the auras. Like previously when the magical wolf had attacked me, I had sensed its fire element before it could even attack me.

“Could it be that I’ve been using too much magic recently-I had even used necromancer magic-and this has caused my holy aura to diminish?!”

If that were to be the case then I’m in trouble! I am the Sun Knight; my holy aura can only grow stronger, not weaker! Looks like I’ll have to watch how I use the other magic spells from now on.

And here I had been thinking of taking a walk and exercising my stiff muscles after having slept so much, but now that I cannot simply use magic anymore I think I had better go back and try to sleep. It’s safer for me this way…… As I turned to head back towards the camp, I suddenly sensed an extremely strong wind aura gathering behind me.

When I spun around, a person now occupied the previously empty clearing. He was dressed in light black armour and wielded a pair of slim swords; the dark aura coming from him was staggering – on the level of a Death Knight even.

But, there was no doubt that he was a living and breathing person, could it be…… I was stunned by the thought and burst out with my suspicions, “the God of Chaos’ dark knight?”

But then again, he had just used Instant Teleportation. How would a knight how to cast magic spells? Again, I couldn’t resist asking him, “You know how to cast Instant Teleportation; are you really a dark knight?”

The knight, too, had looked surprised to see me and asked, “What strong ‘holy’ aura; are you really an assassin?”

Realising that we both doubted each other’s identities, we both fell into a strange silence. After a while, the dark knight asked coldly, “You’re our pursuer?”

I couldn’t deny it even if I had wanted to. Other than this guy in front of us and our group of pursuers there was no one else within miles. So I coldly retorted, “If you are the fleeing party then, yes, I’m the pursuing party.”

Even though we had identified ourselves as the fleeing and pursuing party respectively, we remained still, neither making a move to attack. I did not want to fight with him, for I could tell from the familiar way he held his swords and his stance that he was on a level equal to Judge and Roland. I’m not interested in dying at such a young age.

And I think that he did not wish to fight me; the amount of holy aura I had was enough to drown out his dark aura, and he had no interest in dying so early either.

If we were to fight each other, the chances were split fifty-fifty as to who would be killed first: Him being seared alive by a full frontal attack of my holy aura, or me being hacked into two by his dual swords. Seeing as I did not even have a hundred percent confidence of defeating him-which went completely against my 200 percent victory principle-I decided to let him off!

“I do not wish to fight with you,” I told him frankly.

The dark knight frowned upon hearing that, but to show his peace, he put away his swords. But for some reason he did not immediately leave, and so we stood there staring at each other…… Smack!

I glared coldly at my palm. This mosquito sure has the guts to fly around me whilst I’m wearing the Dragon’s Holy Robe! Doesn’t it realise that now that I’m dressed in black I no longer have to worry about dirtying white gloves?!

I flicked away the flattened mosquito, and when I raised my head to look back up, the dark knight was staring at me in shock. I said in an impatient voice, “What? Never seen someone killing a mosquito before?”

The dark knight’s lips twitched as he said in an amused tone, “People killing mosquitoes is a common enough sight, but this is the first time I’ve seen an assassin kill a mosquito.”

‘Oh? Too bad for you then. You still have yet to see an assassin kill a mosquito for I am a holy knight, not an assassin.’

I gave a huge yawn and said, “Seeing as we’re not fighting, I’m going back to bed.”

“Hold on!”

My face darkened at that. Looks like he has no intention of letting me leave. What a pity. I had been thinking of going back and telling them that the target was just nearby and that we should all hurry and catch him. Once we’ve caught him, located the missing princess and attend a wedding, I could then finally return to the Holy Temple to continue my life as a temple sap. What joy!

The dark knight furrowed his brows as he said hesitatingly, “The Princess chose to come with me willingly.”

I was startled by this statement, but on the outside I maintained my calm demeanour and coldly retorted, “Rapists always claim that the women had seduced them in the first place.”

The dark knight’s face darkened at that and he again announced another shocking statement. “We’re eloping!”

‘Damn it!’

I was starting to believe him, for no reason other than because the dark knight was extremely tall, dark and good-looking. He belonged to the ‘enemy of all men’ type – ya know? What with his amazing good looks he could be a potential love rival; all men, watch out!

He looked extremely suited to being a dark knight; because dark knights tend to be the cold and ruthless type, the kind who is forever wary and treats everyone else as his enemy…… With how good-looking he is, he should be wary and treat every man around him as his enemy to be able to survive until today.

“If you had really eloped, then why leave that letter behind?”

But I still struggled, not wanting to so easily believe this ‘truth’…… With such a handsome kidnapper, I’m sure that even if the Princess had really been kidnapped in the beginning, after spending about two weeks in the presence of this ‘bishie’, it probably had evolved into an elopement.

The dark knight blinked at me blankly and asked, “What letter?”


Just as I realised that there might be more to it than a simple kidnapping and was about to question him further, I heard a faint rustling sound from behind and quickly shut my mouth. The dark knight, too, appeared to have heard it.

He shot me a glance as he took out a mage scroll and whispered “Instant Teleportation”. His entire person was then wrapped in a whirl of wind, and with a ‘whoosh’ he disappeared.

“I see, so he was using an Instant Teleportation scroll. Like I said, how can there be so many people in this world who do not fit their job criteria ……” I muttered as I changed out of the Dragon’s Holy Robe and gathered a small ball of holy light in my palm, lighting up the place. I then proceeded to wait in the clearing.


Leaf was the first to emerge from the trees. He looked at me up and down, and after making sure that I was alright he let out a sigh of relief. But he still inquired after me with concern, “A-are you alright?”

“I’m fine,” I replied. Short and sweet, that’s my motto.

Behind him came Michael, Ann and Alston. When I saw them looking at me with a questioning look in their eyes I explained calmly, “I met a dark knight.” All the while taking note of each of their reactions.

Michael asked questioningly, “Dark knight? What are those guys from the Church of Chaos doing around these lands?”

Alston frowned, seemingly deep in thought.

A look of panic, however, had flashed across Ann’s face, but as expected of a princess she quickly regained her composure, managing to even feign a worried look in my direction.

As usual, I returned her look with a smile. The smile seemed to reassure her and she calmed down.

Leaf then voiced his suspicions. “Could it be that this dark knight is the one who had kidnapped the princess?”

I smiled brightly at Leaf, while the latter widened his eyes at my response, looking for all the world like a little boy who could not understand what he had done wrong. My mind raced with my thoughts as I considered what to reveal. In the end, I decided to play innocent and answered, “This Sun does not know.”

Michael, on the other hand, growled angrily, “It must be him! Where is he now?”

“He escaped with an Instant Teleportation scroll. I’m afraid he’s now some distance away from us,” I replied honestly.

Hearing that, Michael shook with fury, yelling for us to chase after him immediately. After two whole weeks of no real action he’s probably itching for battle.

However, Alston had quickly grabbed Michael and began lecturing his son, talking about how the distance was unknown and that they couldn’t be sure that they would catch up to the dark knight even if they started chasing right now; and besides all our tools and supplies haven’t been packed, if we didn’t catch up to them it would be hard to survive without the tools……


Back at the camp, it had been decided – at Michael’s insistence – that we would set out two hours earlier than planned the next morning. And so with the exception of Michael who would be on the lookout for the rest of the night, everyone else crawled back into their tents to continue sleeping. However, I don’t think any of us can actually fall asleep after all the excitement tonight.

Leaf and I were among those who couldn’t fall asleep. Since he crawled into the tent, Leaf kept staring at me as if wanting to say something. Before he could say a word, I hurriedly covered his mouth. Leaf stared at me in bewilderment.

After thinking about it, I finally thought of a method to communicate with him without being overheard. I gathered some holy light in my finger, and using that finger, I started writing out glowing letters in the air.

[I think we have been played the fool by the Queen and Princess Ann.]

After reading my words, Leaf struggled to follow my example and write out his reply with holy light too, but…… his writing was so sloppy that it took me a while to figure out his message: [Why do you say that?]

I then wrote out another message: [I know for a fact that Ann is leading us around in circles.]

As for the matter of the ‘ransom’ letter, well…… my theory about the letter’s authenticity cannot stand based on just the dark knight’s word, so I decided not to mention it just yet.

Leaf frowned and wrote: [Then what should we do?]

After giving it some thought, I replied: [We must not get separated. For now, we’ll continue on as before, so you need only worry about carrying me for the rest of the journey!]

Leaf – very diligently – dotted six glowing dots: [……]

About an hour later, Michael started yelling and bellowing, calling for everyone to get up and pack up. I wasn’t bothered at all, for I hadn’t been able to fall asleep the whole night, but poor Leaf was startled awake. As he got up and got ready, he looked exhausted and ready to fall asleep at any time.

 As I watched Leaf go about his morning, I felt a prickle from my conscience. I even hesitated for a moment when it came time to crawl onto Leaf’s back. Thank goodness my conscience had long since been beaten back into the furthest reaches of my soul, for it was only a small prickle, and soon, I was making myself comfortable on leaf’s back.

When Michael saw the two of us, he immediately roared angrily, “Aimer, stop carrying him around, it’s a complete waste of time! He’s useless anyway; just leave him behind and run with us at full speed.”

Right away, Leaf objected. “No, we can’t! Before this, it wouldn’t matter if we had left Sun behind.”


“But now that we know that the enemy is a dark knight, we must bring Sun along! Only he can contain the enemy’s dark aura.”

Michael gave a cold laugh and sneered condescendingly. “Is there anything that doesn’t give off a dark aura after we’ve gone through them? Dead bodies are dark, right?”

Leaf was stumped at that. With a party of our calibre, we could have mowed down everything that stood in our way…… even though throughout the whole journey we only had the misfortune of meeting deplorable parties and pitifully weak magical beasts, and thus have yet to have a proper battle. Leaf, Aston and I hadn’t even had the opportunity to demonstrate our skills, as all the enemies were instantly dealt with in a one-sided battle.

After going at an inhuman pace for two whole weeks, we were already deep within the forest, but the situation had yet to change: Michael was still able to deal with any trouble with his bare fists and had yet to draw his sword; Ann was still sending her ‘admirers’ flying with a kick and had only used her axes to cut up our dinner; and Leaf’s only duty was to carry me, with not a single arrow less since we started out on this quest.

Leaf hesitated and turned to look at me. “Sun, it’s only for a day. Will you be able to run with us?”

I had previously sensed a wind mage with the dark knight; and wind mages’ specialties are flying and instant teleportation. This was probably why we were never able to catch up with them no matter how fast we were going. Since we weren’t able to catch up with them before, I do not believe that we would be able to catch up with them now.

And since we won’t be able to catch up, why should I have to run like crazy after them?

I slowly replied, “To avoid slowing down this Sun’s team members, this Sun requests that my brothers and sister to go on ahead without any worry for this Sun. Sun will catch up with my brothers and sister later.”

“Sun?” Leaf stared at me in surprise.

I raised a hand to stop him, saying calmly, “This Sun remains firm in my decision, so my brother Leaf need not bother to persuade this Sun. This Sun will be under the God of light’s watchful gaze.”

Leaf hesitated for a moment before nodding and saying wryly, “Alright then, take care now, Sun.”

“Hurry up,” Michael called out impatiently.

I stood there watching the rest leave. Leaf kept turning back to look at me worriedly, but the trees were growing densely so deep in the forest and soon enough, I could no longer see them anymore.

“Okay! I heard that there’s an interesting little town somewhere in the middle of this forest…… so…… where there is civilization, there should be some alcohol, right?” I mumbled to myself.

It’s been almost a month since I last drank! For a guy spoilt with a secret cellar filled with wine hidden under his room, it’s amazing that I even lasted this long! I was so desperate that I was even thinking of picking some of the fruits from the trees and mixing them with my apple wine.

What’s that? You ask why I would bring along a few bottles of my apple wine?


Winemakers would sometimes trade their wines with each other for some variety in their merchandise, so…… get it now?

What? Aren’t I a holy knight? Since when did I become a wine merchant?

Of course I’m still a holy knight! It’s just that I have my retirement to think about! I am now already twenty-three years old, and I will be retiring at the age of forty. How can I properly enjoy my retirement with so little time left and yet so little money saved up?? So that’s why I have to do some little odd jobs here and there to help earn more money. Besides, how can I deprive the world of the fruits of my labour when I have such excellent winemaking skills!

  8. Yeaah, new chapter :D. A great one. Thank you!

  9. Thank you! ♥

  10. thanks for the good chapter, it was really and trully super great!

    jeje *evil grin* a wiked tought came across my mind when i readed this chapter.

    after getting ticked off sun beats the crap out the dark night using magic, as a magical assesine, then with holy light he heals him, and beats him, and heals him...over and over making him so scared of him that he will become his secret follower. after that the princess issue gets resolved,and the wedding get place ans stuff.
    one day the son of war crosses path with they dark guy, starts dueling him, and loses miserably. then he states that he must be the strongest person he has ever met. Then the dark night raices an eyebrow at this, "how about the sun knight?" "what about him?" long pause and many "...."s latter, the dark guy leaves behind a very confused son of war "what an incredibly ability to play inocent" he mutters over as he disapears in the distance

    btw: kazuha, i ended the first chapter of the fanfic already (i belive you just readed till CH1PART2), also when the time comes let me know if you prefer Ann to die a horrible death or to have creus secreetly get his revenge of her. tell me about it when you give me with a review. ;)

  11. Thank you so much for this!!! =D

    Hahah I can´t wait to see Sun, beat the dark knight, and make a blood bath with him, with his magic XD

  12. So much fun <3. The end almost made me fall from my chair from laughter xdd. Hilarious.

    That exchange between the dark knight and Sun was epic, haha.

    Thanks a lot for this! /glomps

  13. Whoo. yeay. That washed away all the stress that's been mounting up. Thanks so much!! -J

  14. Thank you so much :* :) *hugs*

    soooooooooooooooooo much!!!!

    Ajajajajaj this was a funny chap!! XDXD

  16. cant agreee more, epic!!! thanks 4 the hard work

  17. Thank you for the new chapter.
    I craved for moreeee...

    Btw, I have question,
    if the dragon badge was used by Sun, then the Hell Knight shall not wear any disguise at the moment, right...?
    Or there are TWO item of dragon badge....?

  18. ya know, every chapter i think that i only need to read the next one to be satisfied, but sadly i think that EVERY chapter...
    the story is simply to awesome

  19. no, there are no two dragon badges, in the final battle "Son of War vs. Hell Knight vs. Elliot" Roland did not win, even though he had that outfit. Considering that Rolands skills are on par with judge, whose skills are slightly beneath Michaels, and the boost from the holy dragon robe should be enough to elevate Rolands ability beyond Michaels

  20. Ahhh. I thought it was funny, Roland couldn't kick his ass. Sun didn't want Hell to win because a Princess cannot marry a Death Lord disguised as a Holy Knight. It would have been funny, the princess fell in love with the real hell knight but have to marry the fake one lol. That aside does anyone know who else besides oddsquad is translating the manga?

  21. i believe that even if Roland won he wouldn't have married the princess, after all creus is the one who is "competting for her affection" and the hell kinght captian is there, "just" beacuse he was being stubborn

  22. Wee I figured~ So pretty much what Roland is wearing would be a replica or just a costume of the Dragon Badge outfit. Without the boost and all that. ^_^

    But Roland as the Hell Knight ought to be wearing his official Hell Knight Costume like the other knights...

  23. "A Princess cannot marry a Death Lord disguised as a Holy Knight" - XDDDD. Roland probably wouldn't have married the princess anyway, as he'd be too focused on sword practice or something. :P

    Personally, I think that Sun took Roland's Dragon Badge outfit back when he realised he needed it and Roland's now wandering around in his ordinary clothes and maybe some light armour. Judging by the character designs of the knights, I'd say that they wear clothes appropriate to their position most of the time - not necessarily full dress uniform like they might wear at a parade, but clothes that fit their position, e.g. Judge Knight always wears black, Sun Knight always wears white gloves, etc. But that's just my non-canon rationalisation.

  24. OK...I finally decided to here we go!
    First of all thank you so much for the hard work and the translates!I really appreciate them and I can't wait to read more!OH,,,the story is realy funny and wonderful.
    Then I have to say that sun is driving me CRAZY!!!I want to grab his head and smack it into the wall!
    It's like he is actually intending to be so useless!some times he does a realy amazing and unbelievable job and proves that he's realy clever but immediately after that -like he realize that he's bieng usefull!- he transformes to a very useless jerk!
    Anyway I realized something.if Sun has brought the Dragon’s holy Robe with him,then what is Roland wearing?and this is the question!
    And he can't wear his ordinary clothes.because a lot of holy knights seen him in his ordinary clothes and and if he doesn't wear a mask or something they definitely recognize him!

  25. Roland is wearing a copy, the novel covers for 3 and 6 shows both Sun and Roland wearing the outfit but there are visible differences between them.

  26. Hmm, I think this issue here needs some confirmation.
    As the story told us that Roland is CERTAINLY wearing an outfit that covers half of his face when he's running around in the holy temple ( this still the very same Sun's dragon holy robe he's wearing ?? )

    I think Roland definitely CAN'T show his face since he will be recognized easily especially by royal knights ( and Blaze, Earth and Storm ? ), thus his cover will be blown away.
    Aww...that's a 'lil bit dangerous, eh ?

  27. that so?Thanks!
    Ok,I thought about the name-It's for the dark knight,right??? - and I eventually came up with a made-up name! I thought of eques obscurus, that means "Dark Knight" in latin, and cut some of the letters and made "Ecurus" or "Ecuros"!of course they sound kinda wierd and I'm not completely sure if it's for a dark knight or not!?,but I like them more than Aiweistier!
    ...I found another name: "Erufu"!!!this one is Japanese!
    I hope these helped you!=3

  28. Talking about the name for the new character.. I actually like your third choice, but I think it's a little too long. Maybe if you can shorten it a bit like "Altier" or "Aswier" it will be better. Just a suggestion though :)

  29. About the new name...transliterated/translated from the Thai using Google Translate and a couple of posts, I think they used "Iquest". I quite like the "Ai" part of the name, though, and "c(h)u" rather than "qu" (I get really weird about how things are spelled) - so maybe Aic(h)uest/Ic(h)uest?

  30. Whatever the name is, I still think it should somehow come from the translation of the original name of the dark knight, and not something made up, because it may confuse some of the people who read both the chinese and translated version of the novel.

    But anyway thank you for your efforts on translating the novel, and I am looking forward to how sun will now shamelessly use his magical gifts in trading his apple wine with the other wine merchants since he is now alone with no danger of getting exposed as the sun knight.^^

  31. Ikan??? ..... I liked "Iquest" (Cuz is short...) (anyways i still voted for the third one ^^)

  32. 艾(Ai/Yi)崔(Ch-u-ay)斯(Si)特(Te).

    That's the name of the new character-a Dark Elf. NOT the Dark Knight! So eques obscurus wouldn't work, Anonymous. Sorry!

    For the one who preferred the original meaning, the words mean total shit. Seriously. OK, because you asked...

    this link should get you to a website which translates chinese words into english, word by word, so you can look up their individual meanings.

    Thanks for some of the suggestions, I will take them into consideration. I might even put up a new poll later on with some of the suggestions and see if the rest prefer them.

  33. Dragon's Holy Robe

    Ok, a lot of ppl have been talking about Creus' and Roland's outfit, and wondering which is the real one, and here's what I think.

    Creus has the original. Roland's is probably a fake, just a copy that looks like it so he can continue the charade that he was Slayer all along. I doubt it's the real one cause:

    1. It needs blood, Roland doesn't have blood (at least not a continuous fresh supply to continue on using it)
    2. Pink gave the robe to Sun, not Roland. And I think Sun would definitely need it more than Roland.(and they both know it!) Besides, items like the robe are RARE, that means they are unlikely to have more than one.
    3. Sun was just shown to be using it in this chapter (and more to come), so obviously his is the original and Roland's is a fake.

    I don't know how much clearer I can get.

  34. Ai-chui-si-te sounds pretty awful, i tried to read the next chapter translated by google and it goes as "Ai Drizz" or something like that. I love how it sounds. well, its just a suggestion

  35. oh i forgot to mention something...if you want a deeper meaning of why i gwould go with it

    The baby boy name Drizzt comes from the Unknown word which means, "protector of the land." isnt it nice...

    i looked aroud after you wrote that wwe should look for the meaning of the characters. Ai is "love" maybe its a bit forced to calll him "Ai drizzt" but if you dont care that they look anything alike maybe Ren Drrizzt is also a good option

    In Chinese, Rén is composed of 2 parts representing "persons" and "two", respectively. Rén relied heavily on the relationships between two people, but at the same time encompassed so much more than that. It represented an inner development towards an altruistic goal, while simultaneously realizing that one was never alone, and that everyone had these relationships to fall back on, being a member of a family, the state, and the world.

    for more info you can wiki it, it goes very deep. i feel a little bit nosy, and im not an expert, but i think it fits! at least better than Ai-chui-si-te

  36. Oh, what a very interesting story. ^^

    Sun is so smart to bring the Hell Knight history background to his advantage.
    In front of all of the spectators, he showed that he's not Slayer and that Slayer is Hell Knight.
    But at the same time, he announced that according to the history of holy knight, Hell Knight is Sun Knight himself in disguise.

    So, while successfully ceased the suspicion of Slayer's true indetity towards the end, everyone's still having lingering question "Is Sun really Slayer or not...?"

    Then the answer would be "Yes, he is..but he is not." more confusing it can be... ^^
    What a smart moves. ^^;

    I wonder if in the future story someone will actually see Slayer Sun and Slayer Hell Knight being together at one scene.
    If that so, what kind of excuse Sun will use, haha...

  37. It make sense...and I guess we can say Dragon's Holy Robe seals with blood,right?and it was sealed with Sun's blood.So probably it wouldn't activate unless Sun is the one who's using it.Tis is mu opinion anyway!
    I did a little research and eventually I found these for the name.although most of them, have "dark" meanings but I guess a "dark elf"'s name has to have "dark" meaning!:
    Itzal : in the shadow
    Donovan : little dark brown one
    Duane : little and dark
    Daren : born at night
    Doyle : dark stranger
    Keiran :little & black
    Kione : someone who comes from nowhere
    nigro : dark
    CAREY or CARI : dark one
    Efa : darkness
    orphe or ORPHEUS : darkness
    Aiden : little fire
    and Airel

  38. Well thanks for the confirmation regarding the Dragon Robe thingamajig.

    It was already obvious how Roland did not have the original one since he is a corpse with no continuous blood supply and it was preposterous how he could possibly wear it continuously (as he does not have another outfit) throughout the time frame he'd been assisting the other knights.

    Anyway, back on topic with the current chapter. Is it just me or is Ann in love with Michael? And just devised or made up that kidnapping story (and letter) just to spend time with Michael? She's a manipulative character who managed to get Sun into the team although her plans are not fool-proof.

  39. I voted for your third choice, but yeah, it's a little too long ^^ if u want to shorten the name, how about aiwen? i don't know the meaning tho, but sounds good to me xD

  40. i voted for your fourth choice. Ai-chui-si-te is kinda hard to turn into an exact english name. i suggest "Alistair" cause it has a nice sound to it and a bit similarity in pronunciation. :)

  41. Ok, here are the ones i liked so far from the names everyone suggested:

    And i wanted to ask you something...
    I´d like to translate your translation into Spanish, I´ve actually been translating the manhua and it seems quite popular, but there’re so few chapters that I like to translate the novel as well,
    You don’t mind if I use your translation?? A lot of people would be very thankful if you let me
    Please please please pleeeeeeeeeeease let me use you translation!! *looking at you with puppy eyes while saying this*

  42. Thanks for translating so I can enjoy this great story!

    Regarding the name for the dark elf, I will like anything that's somewhat close to the Chinese name - just with english spelling.

    Some have already been mentioned but for some reason, the Greek king Atreus also comes to mind. He had committed a crime so terrible that some say the sun changed its course out of horror... (It's really sick so read more about it at your own risk:

    If you stay true to the Chinese pronunciation it can also be any mix of A/Ai/Ei/I - ch/di/dr/dw/ge/j/tr/tw - aist/aste/ayst/est/eist/eyst/ist/oust/ust + all the variations I may have forgotten.
    Erm, I really hope, you're the kind of person who likes a lot to choose from... More options makes more likely to find something good, right?

    But honestly, when it all comes down to it I think everyone here will accept whatever you end up with if it means you'll keep up the good work.

  43. Blacklily: I don't really mind you using my translations for your Spanish translations. I'm assuming that you do not read/write Chinese well? Cause if you do it's always best to translate straight from the original, as translations of a translations can sometimes lose some of the original meaning and nuances. But if you can't, then sure, go ahead and use mine.

    But would you mind providing a link back to my blog when you post your translations? And similarly, I won't mind putting up a link to your translations. :)

  44. Thank you so much Lealynn!!!! And of course I’ll provide a link back to your page!!! I’ll put it in every chapter I translate ^^ (once i figure out how, I'll put it on the main page too...)

    And yep you guessed right my Chinese really really sucks…... T.T

    As for the link to my page is this one:
    (Though I haven't posted any chapter of the novel yet......)

    once again thank you sooooooo much!!>.<

  45. Thank you so much for posting these! I love u!

  46. Thank you!!! i realy love this books i am sooooo happy that i can read them in engles (don't know chinese)

  47. lol I scanned through the comments and I have to say Ai-chui-si-te sounds a bit like a sneeze. XD Ooh look it's... wormwood? lol Aiweist --> Aiweiz --> Iweiz/Eweiz? lol this naming thing is rather odd, what was Yu Wo going for? Haha.

    Finally Leaf gets Sun off his back (literally)!! Guy needs a break, like badly. I forget why Sun mustn't perform spells though, is it because he's only supposed to perform Holy rites and chants and so on? ^^;
    Go forth and be a wine merchant, Sun! Something tells me that you'll end up closer to the eloping couple than those following Ann, somehow. lol

    I kinda want to see Sun getting lost and having to brave the wild by himself (No Leaf to sleep on :P) though.. lol

    Thank you for translating! You're really fast. :)

  48. Aozora-skies: Sun mustn't perform spells cause according to his teacher holy knights don't cast spells. (except holy spells). Knights are supposed to fight with swords on horses, warriors with weapons, mages with magic, assassins attacking people secretly......

    Also in one of the side stories of LSK, there's a part of Sun's childhood which shows Sun's teacher specifically telling his student to avoid using magic (unless no1 is around).

    When he saw Sun's awesome prowess in using magic, he got nervous that Sun might retaliate on him for the years of him training (bullying) Sun.

  49. mmm does the name need to have a meaning? i was thinking how about calling it Aiwest it looks pretty similar to the names you put in the poll, just shorter. Putting that aside the suggestion of having black in the name somehow is interesting, and the Drizzt thingy too... I', super curious to see what name you will decide in the end. but maybe thats just me wanting to see the next chapter. If the dark elf that was with the teacher appears, then the teacher should apear too, right?

    thank you big time for your translations. you are nicer than leaf, I love you (^_^)

  50. Just thought something likw Asith/Asythe might be good.
    Oh, and by the way, THANK YOU for posting the english version of Sun Knight up...TT^TT *cries tears of happiness*

  51. Going on someone else's idea here but maybe Aesith?

  52. Thank u for the chapter ^ ^ and it;s not stupid that u got an office job , siigh i would want a summer job too but the only ones available that i can actually earn zum is serving at cofee houses , and that;s hell , i hav bad experiences QQ, anyway hav a fun summer XD

  53. I'm so going to miss this (TT-TT)but oh well, at least it came with a warning beforehand. I don't think that any of us useless people who didn't help at all have the right to hold a grudge.

    It would have been nice to at least have one more chapter before your leave though. Well let bygoners be bygoners, earn a lot of money and buy yourself something nice. I wanted to have a part time job but most of them are looking for people who will be there like forever and wont hire person who just want to work during their vacations, im slightly envious of you.

    Lately i discovered that the google translations got a lot better and are now comparatively redeable, i will probably read the whole novel till the end of the last volume... But will be back here on september looking for the next chapters ^_^

  54. Lealynn, about the thing which you posted up...
    ...Do you even have to ask for forgiveness? :P The real world tends to be just slightly more important than doing unpaid translations for a bunch of strangers. And office jobs aren't that stupid if you need monies...

    Lack of time sucks, but I'm sure you'll be fine.

    See you in September!

  55. Good luck with your new job!! :D

    Can't wait for the next chapter!!

  56. Good luck with your office job! we will be waiting patiently for sure. Don't feel guilty since you have our gratitute for your free hard working translation for this novel. Although all of us are die hard fans of this novel - we do understand that you have your own private life. Thanks a million!

  57. ToT..... no way.... no new chap for 2 months....

    Don't worry thought, I'm already very gratefull that you make it so far, you don't need to apologize!!! even if you drop the project I'll bet nobody would not be mad ^^ (It's not a suggestion!!!! please dont drop it!!!!)

    Hope you'll do fine ^^


  58. *Instantly forgives*
    Cause I'm just glad you're doing it at all. It's like... You're my hero! *sparkly eyes of adoration*

  59. Wow! You're great! I found this blog today, and I was at v2ch3, and now I already read the whole thing, and I'm just soooo happy, that you shared this with us!!! If princerevolution won't catch up, I promise to comment on the following chapters! - Hope you won't mind.
    Anyway, the story's great, and it's an awesome translation!!! Thanks for aaaallll of these chappies!!!

  60. Thank's for your hrd work. I found this blog today and I really laugh so hard that people in my home found me crazy. Sun really made my day. Wish you the best!

  61. wow! you're amazing! thanks!

    Will you also be translating the side stories?

  62. *quick pop in*

    I WILL be translating the side stories, just not anytime soon. I don't know. Depends on my mood.

    And welcome new readers! I'm always glad to see that others are finding their way to my blog. I used to get so frustrated that I could hardly find more blogs/sites like this one. In fact, that's actually one of the reasons I started doing the translations myself, just to see an english novel (even if it's translated by myself).

    Sorry, PR, but you guys were a little too slow for me. (I'm an impatient girl! =P)

    *pops out with a wave: 'See yo guys in September!'*

  63. You're the best!! I thought I was the only impatient one. *sigh* If I could read Chinese I would be your partner...translating novel and manga if possible. Hey umm, do you have manga v2? and if you do can you tell me wth happens in the very last chapter?? I wanna buy it but I'm a poor college student with no job. :(

  64. the best the best thank you i just found your site today and i really need to say thank you

  65. I'm new here but thank you!! I love you for your job :D keep going and good luck with your work office!

  66. you are amazing!!
    you can read traditional chinese words..
    i've already read the chinese version, but your translation are even better than the original.
    thanks for translating!! XD
    i love you!! (oh! by the way..i am new here!)

  67. I wonder if Ann is in love with Micheal so being on a rescue mission is only a pretext? (not sure if its good form, but to lazy to check in vocabulary, sorry about mistakes) for getting his love and attention...

  68. Hi there i am new here
    I really like your translation that is TRUE

    Below this may contain something that legend of the sun knight fans does not like it

    If only my friend does not see
    Creus and the gank as gay knights
    (They really direspect toward bishounen aka super handsome or super cute boy )

    I believe they will be this Light novel prisoner like me hahahaha

    Cheers from Melbourne

  69. Stumbled upon this blog and I absolutely love it! I already read the rest of the books with google translate. LOL kay I'm impatient!xD Things will get interesting once Lealynn translates book 7.
