Everyone Else is a Returnee – Chapter 112: I’m the Master of Your Lives – 4

“Wh, what the hell?”

The front line forces exclaimed in amazement.

“That man is a monster, right?”
“The monsters are retreating?”

At the same time the black-haired man bashed his head on the ground, the monsters stopped their attacks and gathered around the man. It was completely different to their attitudes until just now when they charged forward without the fear of death.

The people of Earth didn’t go “Yay, a hexa-kill chance!” and do other idiotic things like that, but became wary of the man and kept their guard up as they sheathed their weapons.
It was undeniable that the man’s aura was very strong, as such, rather than attacking first and enraging him, they decided that it was better to judge the situation a little later. Good, a wise choice – nodded Yu IlHan.

“We do not have any intention to invade this world! It was our last ditch effort as we were chased out by our enemies, so please! May you spare my kin in exchange for my life!”

Meanwhile, the man was still shouting in that position, but only Yu IlHan could understand him here.

No, well, it was something only Yu IlHan needed to understand.

Yu IlHan was in the air with Yumir in his arms, but the moment the man’s second line ended, he re-leaped towards the ground and landed. Standing behind the first huge spear he shot on the ground, Yu IlHan deactivated his concealment.

“Whoa!”
“It really was Susanoo.”
“……But Susanoo has someone in his arms?”

Yumir tried to get into concealment in embarrassment as he was being seen by so many stronger people, but Yu IlHan covered him with a blanket and took him into his arms again. Then, he confronted the black haired man.

“I think you’re misunderstanding something.”

Retorted Yu IlHan using the language he just learned through the maxed out language skill.

“My son is indeed a dragon, but he’s much weaker than you right now, so I don’t think there’s any meaning in asking for help.”
“What do you……?”

The man finally raised his head. Before him was a grown man covered in armor that definitely smelled like a human, and someone that looked human but definitely smelled like a dragon.

“……Son, is dragon? Human? Is father?”
“Yup.”

Replied Yu IlHan while calming the embarrassed Yumir in his arms down.

“How can that be…”

The black-haired man was stunned, leaving his mouth agape. Meanwhile, the number of monsters, mainly wolves, that exited the gate, was increasing.

As their room for movement became smaller and smaller, there came a moment where they had to exert strength into their legs in order to not get fried by the lightning fence. Just as the man tried to remove the fences, Yu IlHan stopped him with his hand gesture.

“Explain the situation.”
“If we don’t remove the fence first……!”
“Very well, I’ll give you some room.”

Confirming that the people had backed off enough, Yu IlHan waved his hand. When he did, the tens of giant spears around the gate disappeared instantly!

The man gaped his mouth at the incredible show of technique, when Yu IlHan waved his hand again and the collected spears started reappearing.

The gigantic spears that appeared a little above the ground embedded themselves in the ground with booming sounds and formed yet another circle, but if there was anything different from last time, it was that the space inside had gotten wider, and the electric fence had disappeared.
However, the electric energy was still there, so if someone like the Empress stimulated them lightly, then another fence would lightning would form.

Moreover, as new spears were added in order to make up the lengthened circumference, it was still very difficult to escape between the spears. It would be different if all the monsters here could jump, but Yu IlHan would never let that happen.

Naturally, the man became shocked and marvelled at the scene. Although he was a 4th class being, he developed physically so he was clueless in regards to magic.

“A human can cast such a high-level spatial magic!?”
“I’m not a dragon’s daddy for show.”

A loner’s disease of not being able to communicate with others without boasting or deception had activated. The palm-sized Erta asked while sighing.

[Did you receive some inventory education somewhere?] (Erta)
“Learned through anime.”1

Yes. Although he boasted to the man, what he utilized was merely the options from his inventory.
He first collected the spears using the remote collection option, then with the exact same option, he called out the spears at around 1m above the ground.

At that time, he added the weight transfer and weight control options to add about 100 tons to each of the spears, so they naturally embedded themselves into the ground.

“……”

The man seemed to hesitate after looking at Yu IlHan. However, in the end, he seemed to have come to a decision as he nodded and smacked his head on the ground again.

“It doesn’t matter whether you’re a dragon or not. What is important is the power you possess. Please help us. Even if we fight you here, that will all be in their favor!”
“Hmm.”

The moment he heard that, Yu IlHan made a thick smirk that no one other than Erta and Liera could see as they could see through his helmet.

Everything was as Yu IlHan had planned. The moment the man appeared and bowed his head, Yu IlHan thought that the situation may turn out like this if he showed his strong side.

Yu IlHan’s aura on the surface definitely didn’t look that strong. At least, in a 4th class being’s view, it would be as such. Then, it should have immediately stood up and ripped apart Yu IlHan with his own hands, but he didn’t.

Why? Because there was something he needed to protect. It’s current mindset was that of someone who wanted any kind of help possible.
Yu IlHan saw through his heart correctly.

“That’s why I said….”

Yu IlHan approached the man. The surrounding wolves glared at him, but when the man shook his head, they immediately backed off. These monsters had a clear method of communication and hierarchy. This was quite a good sign.

Having approached the man, Yu IlHan showed one action while receiving the gaze of all the people and monsters here.
He made the man stand up.

“Explain the situation. If it is of merit to me and to this land, then I’ll cooperate. I’ll also persuade the other humans for you.”

Yu IlHan could only do this as he had thrown away his unconditional hostility against monsters after he cooperated with dragons once. The man seemed to believe Yu IlHan’s honesty as he nodded while sighing in relief. Then he started explaining.

“We call our world Kiroa. Just until a few hundred years ago, humans and us wolfkin were balanced as we developed mutually and fought against each other.”

Wolfkin, or so the man and the wolves were called. So they evolve to be humanoid if they become 4th class? Yu IlHan was pondering when Liera spoke from behind him.

[I know about Kiroa. Not long after the 2nd Great Cataclysm, the wolf monsters reproduced at incredible speeds and exterminated the humans. Of course, we backed off at that point.] (Liera)

Yu IlHan started pondering again after hearing Liera’s explanation; he somehow felt like he had heard about this.
And as he had expected, the man’s following words convinced Yu IlHan of that fact.

“The 2nd Great Cataclysm occurred, and a few of our colonies grew rapidly. We became stronger, faster, and numbered many. Since the balance was tilted, a war was inevitable. We exterminated the humans, and a world of wolfkin opened. I thought that war would end like that and there would come a time of peace.”
“And it didn’t?”
“The various chiefs of the colonies that developed rapidly had a scheme. They attacked the traditional royalty of the wolfkin and the princess……”
“Oh, okay.”

After that was the cliché rebellion and love story that any fantasy novels you pick up at a bookstore would have. How was the repertoire so obvious… While Yu IlHan was yawning in boredom, a new element came in.

“We finally realized: They were wolfkin, but at the same time, they weren’t.”
“So what, they had the transcender group, Destruction Demon Army, behind them?”

The man lost his words. It seemed like Yu IlHan had hit the bullseye. If that was an act, then Yu IlHan would bring that man to Hollywood.

“H, how did……”
“Very well, I believe you.”

The moment Destruction Demon Army came in, the reliability of the information skyrocketed.
The higher existence he met in Dareu, Teraka, definitely did say that Yu IlHan would encounter the Destruction Demon Army quite a lot from then on. Although he didn’t know that it would come so soon, now that they did come, Yu IlHan had no choice but to kill them all. He first checked the remaining details fast.

“So, wolfkin split up into two factions? The Destruction Demon Army faction is trying to bring down the royalty and want the authority, and you guys want to protect them.”
“Yes. However, we’re the weaker side!”
“But since it was confirmed that your world was connected to Earth, Destruction Demon Army side want to invade Earth while they’re at it?”
“Y…… You’re completely correct. And we were sacrificed in that process! They pushed us through the gate in order to deplete the power of both Earth and ours, and they would take over Earth with their full power…… How do you know all this!?”

The man shouted with eyes of disbelief. Yu IlHan answered again with ‘I’m not a dragon’s daddy for nothing’, but inside, he was laughing at him.

That guy’s no good for Hollywood after all, his eyes were trembling like mad.
Those guys pushed the wolfkin through the gate? That was a complete lie. Well, yeah, they were at a numerical disadvantage, but they tried to ‘escape’ here.

They would first check the safety with scouts, and if they judge that this side is weaker than them, then they’d wipe out the humans and prepare to fight back.

No, thinking more about it, it wasn’t that either. The highest possibility was a three-way war between wolfkin, Destruction Demon Army, and Earth.

If the wolfkin scattered throughout the Earth, then would the traitors in the Destruction Demon Army ask the people of Earth politely and hunt only the wolfkin? Would the humans let the monsters free in their cities?

No way.
Naturally, Earth will become a chaos, and wolkin would be able to hide their royalty and even look for a chance for reversal. Only one side would profit in this three-way war.

Their plan was perfect, but somehow, the scouts were wiped out the moment they went through the gate. Even elites of 3rd class were wiped out. The moment they thought that their plan had failed, a dragon magic flies in from beyond the gate.

So, they would think that something is going wrong. That was why, a quite a high ranking wolf-man popped out and bowed his head, and spoke a lie that would not work at all, trying to decrease their sin.

After asking about the scale of the forces of both the wolfkin and the Destruction Demon Army, he confirmed one last thing.

“I’ll ask this just in case, but is the Garden of Sunset helping you guys out or something?”
“Wh, what kind of group is that?”

The wolf-man that was horribly at lying asked with an expression that said he really didn’t know. Yu IlHan just laughed it off saying it’s nothing and shook his head.

Garden of Sunset, unpredictable guys as always. Yu IlHan thought that they were complete idiots, helping some and not helping the rest.

“Good, I’ll explain the situation to the humans. You call your troops here. Oh, your name?”
“Ah, thank you! I’m the Head of the Royal Guardians of the wolfkin, Flemir!”

Yu IlHan snorted seeing Flemir sigh in relief as he flicked his hand. The widened circle completely disappeared this time.

“Dad is so cool.”
“Yes, you can also grow up to be a fine man as well.”
“Yeah!”
[Look at his thick skin, this guy……] (Erta)
[What’s wrong with that? He’s the coolest in the world.] (Liera)
[Ah, yeah, he sure is. Have a nice love.] (Erta)

Yumir, impressed at his father who talked firmly against a 4th class monster, tried to get into Yu IlHan’s embraced again, but bashed his head on the armor yet again. Yu IlHan embraced Yumir to be as comfortable as possible as he turned back around to the humans.

Fear, admiration, respect, hatred, all sorts of emotions were directed towards him.

What took the most part was admiration. Even though they were both people of Earth, he made a monster higher level than him kneel down in front of him and converse. The humans couldn’t put Yu IlHan in the same line as themselves.

Of course, there were some exceptions.

“You, Susanoo! We will definitely [email protected]#$%#@!”
“Sheesh, such a shameless guy.”

Such as Michael Smithson who stepped up daringly before being dragged back by the other clan masters.

“May we, ask for an explanation?”

There was also a woman with clear eyes, who did not forget her position and role even while despairing at the incomparably widened gap from before even though she thought that she had caught up considerably.

“Good, I will explain then.”

Answered Yu IlHan. In English that was no less refined than hers.

“Before that, one thing. I want to change ‘priorities’ in hunting the monsters, but what do you think?”

Yu IlHan didn’t trust in monsters, whether it was the always annoying Destruction Demon Army, or the sons of bitches who looked down on the human intelligence of Earth. They were both enemies he had to get rid of in Yu IlHan’s eyes.


Author’s notes

  1. There were some (T/N: apparently) who didn’t like a Korean MC being called ‘Susanoo’. I guess it does to me as well. However, since he got it from Japan, there’s no helping it? Since he’s in action in Korea this time, if you have any ideas for a nickname, then please recommend me one.
  2. Inventory, OP, successful.
  3. Yu IlHan saw through the man’s patterns because he read most of the novels out there.

Translator’s notes
Not sure how to translate ‘wolf-man’, cuz werewolf don’t really fit the bill here. Werewolves are humans mutated into having wolf like features, but this ‘wolf-man’ here was originally a wolf who mutated/evolved into a humanoid.

    Still not sure how to feel about Yumir–I expect to get really pissed off at Kang Mirae and NaYuna’s reactions to him, and whatever bullshit excuse Ilhan has to come up with on the spot.

    . . . Buuuut I’ve become far too invested in this to drop it now. Unless it gets reeeeeeeeeally bad with a few things, like Ilhan being dense in regards to the angels falling in love with him, or if Yumir begins to impaire the story’s progression in some way.

    Also, not liking this wolf guy so far.

      In order to maintain their PG13 rating, no one should be having sex in story. One way to do this is to have dense heroes. Lots of people have self esteem problems that prevent them from ever believing that people could love them. In Ilhan’s case it is limited to just angels. The author has put in reasonable effort to make it look like that given Ilhan’s priors, it is rational to not believe that Liera/Erta are in love with him. There are relatively few other plot devices that can justify why two adults haven’t had sex yet. In Rakudai Kishi the hero and heroine are an official couple from the first volume and the methods they use:

      a) you’re sick with a fever and not in your right mind
      b) Only after Ive properly asked your family’s permission
      c) interupted by other characters

    I don’t see the problem with him being called Susanoo. If he got the name by taking action in Japan and that’s the most prominent term people use for him, why would it change just because he’s in a different area?

    Hardly anyone knows his name, Sungdaen Bolt was the first name he had but that was just in Korea. With the exploits of Susanoo that people around the world know of, everybody would know the name.

      Depends on the side you are on. But he is not a completely good guy. He jumped out and asked for the almighty dragons help because they are losing. That is the only reason he bowed his head. Also, they ran to earth to hide from the destruction army guys, if the humans were weak, they would just overrun earth and fight back after that, if the humans were strong they wanted to pit earth vs destruction army and they could watch. He (the wolf-man) is still trying for this second one, but our crafty MC has seen through him cuz he is a poor liar.

      At least that is how I read it.

      Wolf guy is a bad guy, sort of.

      He attempted to flee into Earth as his factiom was losing to DDA’s wolfkin
      He was planning to make Earth’s dwellers to go against DDA’s wolfkin.
      He was planning to make use of the chaos during the fight to kill both side and take over Earth
      The scout team dispatched got instakilled, so he found out that there was a dragon and realised that the plan was gonna fail
      He rushed out to beg, only to find out the strongest was Illhan.

      Crucial point: The wolfkin, and him included, committed a genocide that drove human on their planet to extinction. From this point alone, you could argue that they are bad guys from a human point of view, although they might have done that to accomodate their growing size.

        It really does all have to do with perspective. We can call the Wolves evil for killing all the humans on their world, but at the same time the humans were trying to and would of destroyed all the wolves given the chance.

        These wolves plan isn’t really evil. They just have things they want to protect and are taking every action to protect them. The priority currently for them is to protect the wolves royal family. Currently they don’t have a reason to fight against the humans since all that really does is deplete their strength and make them an easier target for the DDA. Once the DDA is out of the way… then their goal might turn to killing the humans to gain strength.

      More like out of consideration for the location this novel is published. The author himself seems pretty chill about Japan (he watches a lot of anime and etc from all the references we see).

      However, since Korea has bad blood with Japan, the readers (mainly Korean) won’t like it if there shows any sign of Japanese superiority (nicknamed from Japan inst of Korea), which can cause his readers to drop the series.

    So did anyone else, when hearing about the wolf man princess, think to themselves. ‘oh another potential female to fall in love with Yu Ilhan’, lol.

    I wonder how Ilhan is going to setup this fight. If he will go into their world and do guerrilla battle tactics while leaving the reinforced fence to humanity or will he stay on Earth and let the Destruction Demon Army guys come to them.

    Only problem I can think of if Ilhan leaves is that only he really has the means to fight against 4th classes. So if he leaves the ‘ally’ wolves behind there is a chance they will betray the humans. On the other hand he has a better chance of winning against fourth classes by fighting in an Abandoned World rather than on Earth. Especially since he now has Liera with him as well as Erta to draw strength from.

    I think Ilhan is going to do Guerrila battle, but also take someone of high ranking importance along with him. Kind of hostagish situation. So if the Wolves betray him he can kill their important person.

      Highly unlikely, if the wolfkin are on the list, then they can’t get off it. The DDA is on the list due to various trespassing reasons. I believe the 3-way battle is still on, only this time, a temporary alliance is in order between royalty and humans. Once the DDA is gone, Yu llHan and his elites will finish them off for killing humans.

      To him, this is just another hunting spree, only this time, he has a family to come along with. The hostage takeover wouldn’t work, because he can disappear with the hostage, stay still while everyone panics.

      But I agree, the fence stays up till the abandoned world is severed or under control on Earth. Now the dogs have to be good or it’s zappy-zappy.

      Reply
      1. Jonathan Hurd

        Well technically both sides would have hostages. So if one side runs off or hurts theirs then you can destroy yours.

        I feel like Yu Ilhan is willing to give some room to the other side as long as they don’t harm his. Now there would have to be insurances just like he had with Reta. So yeah the Electric fence around the exit would be the start and probably a few more things would have to be added for permanent defense post, but I feel like as long as the wolves didn’t cross the line Yu Ilhan would let them live. He has a lot of problems currently so potentially having some allies in another world could be helpful.

        Besides even if he kills all the wolves I believe monsters will just start popping up again in that world thanks to the mana. Might as well save yourself some effort and have them deal with their own world so he doesn’t have to keep cleaning it.

          My guess from looking at the title is that he’ll use Rule on them. The negotiations aside, the explanations with the humans seem more interesting. If he just takes off his helmet…

          1. Jonathan Hurd

            I would love him using rule personally. Since the wolves that were loyal to the royal family seem to have a cast system. If he stands at the top of that and has the princess become his subordinate that would basically mean he is the king of the whole race. The Loner King becomes a true King wooh!

            While Ilhan taking off his helmet would be amazing. I am honestly just waiting for questions about Yumir to come out in the explanation. That is where things are going to get pretty damn interesting, lol.

          2. Anon

            But wasn’t rule limit 5 people? And correct me if I am wrong but it didn’t level up to take more people under his rule.

          3. Jonathan Hurd

            You are right that the current limit of people Illhan can rule is 5, but I think it will start to level as he gives more orders to the elves and Yumir.

            The big thing for me is not to rule all the wolf people, but the top. So if he puts the wolf princess underneath him then he effectively rules all of them. Now knowing Ilhan he isn’t going to let his guard down with just that, but it would mean that he can put a certain level of trust in the wolf princess.

            Also when I write wolf princess I keep remembering Princess Monoke, lol.

    I have a few predictions. Being a wolf world, I expect to see a Fenrir (Norse Wolf Monster). This author has mentioned Gungnir (Odin’s Spear) and Fenrir before, when he gained Absolute Accuracy. Ymir is also from Norse mythology. That’s why I’m wondering if this trend will stick and more Norse creatures may end up showing up (to be turned into weapons of course :). Fafnir as well… It would have to be a 5th class dragon if it does though. I’d be very disappointed if the MC’s new nickname becomes Odin though. I hope it’s something more western since a Korean name wouldn’t sound cool at all… Yes, I don’t like Korean names when I like reading Korean novels.
