Chapter 17 Part 2 - The Narrow-Eyed Villain of the Demon Academy

The worst and strongest villain. I became a narrow-eyed character Arsene Adel. DBT,Korean,Novel,Translation,Academy,NEVDA,Fantasy,Possession,Assassin

Rene's voice was laced with a cold, seething anger.


The word 'human' meant that the target of her revenge wasn't the Arsene family.


After all, the Arsene clan was a half-demon race that belonged to neither side.


'Fortunately, it's not my business.'


If the Bares family had become my enemy, I would have been in a difficult position.


I had avoided the worst possible future with a single question.


That alone made me think that I had done well to approach her.


Should I try to get more information?


"Who is that human?"


"...The one who killed my mother."


"I see."


As I had expected.


Rene planned to enter the human world through Sytan to get her revenge.


I had heard from the Bares family's servants that Rene's mother had been killed by a human.


However, Rene was a character that I hadn't described in detail, so I didn't know exactly what her past was like.


There was one thing I could guess.


Since they had killed the wife of the Bares family's lord, Crete, it was likely that the human belonged to one of the Six Families.


I also asked about 'that human'.


"Do you know anything about that human? Which family they belong to, for example?"


"..."


At my question, Rene's expression hardened like a brick wall.


Rene was furious that I had even brought up the subject.


Had I stepped on a landmine?


I realized that Rene was deliberately feigning anger and shut my mouth.


Since the target wasn't me, there was no need to push her for more information.


Besides, once I entered Sytan, I would see plenty of humans and members of the Six Families.


I could figure out who that human was then.


More importantly...


'The atmosphere has gotten even worse...'


I closed my eyes as the surroundings seemed to grow colder.


Rene didn't say anything more either, and only the sound of the carriage wheels filled my ears.


An hour passed like that.


“Well, we've arrived.”


I opened my eyes only when the carriage carrying us finally reached the capital.

What are the differences between the Demon Realm and the Human Realm?


In fact, it's safe to say that there are no major differences.


If I had to nitpick, I would say that the Demon race has a different species called the Heteromorphs, unlike humans. [T/N: Heteromorphic means differing from the usual form, or exhibiting diversity of form or forms]


For example, the Bares family has the horns of a black dragon…….


Other than that, there is not much difference in appearance from humans.


However, there is a clear difference between ordinary Demons and the higher-ranking Demons.


The higher-ranking Demons have tattoos engraved on their bodies.


It meant that they were loved by the Demon God.


‘I'm also a half-Demon, so I have a tattoo…….’


I don't know which god's tattoo it is.


Before I could create specific settings for the tattoos, the detailed background of Adel was excluded because readers weren't interested


‘I guess it doesn't matter if I don't know.’


Adel never believed in God all his life, but he became the strongest villain.


So it doesn't matter if I don't know.


Above all, I am no different from a god in this world, so what would I do if I knew that?


Anyway.


There is little difference in appearance between Demons and humans.


The only obvious difference is the feeling of mana.


I didn't know when I first fell into this world, but after living in the Demon Realm for a long time, I gradually became able to distinguish it.


If humans had a mana with a refined atmosphere, the mana of the Demons had a slightly sticky feeling.


Other than that, there is no difference, so I guess that's why I feel the same way I do now.


Getting out of the carriage and looking at the scenery of the capital... I should say it's obvious.


“It's medieval.”


“……?”


“It's nothing.”


Rene looked at me when she heard my murmur and shook her head.


I felt a little disappointed.


There were no modern artifacts, and medieval stone walls and building styles filled my vision.


Still, since it was the capital of the Demon Realm, there were many unusual things to see.


From food that I had never seen before to Western-style buildings that were quite stylish…….


Numerous Demons were walking around the streets, creating a market-like atmosphere.


The Demon Realm, which had devoted all its efforts to restoring the capital after the Human-Demon War.


That's why I can feel such a lively atmosphere.


“So, where should we go now?”


“Hmm…….”


As the coachman left, we briefly looked around and discussed our plans for the future.


Rene, who had been thinking for a moment, opened her mouth.


"The entrance exam is in two days at noon. We need to register before that."


"I see."


Rene knew the exact time, probably because Crete had told her in advance.


Since I don't know anything about the capital, I'll just have to follow Rene silently.


'Two days.'


What should I do until then?


I thought for a moment and came up with a good idea.


"How about we explore the capital during the remaining time after we register?"


"Not really..."


Rene rejected my suggestion outright.


I couldn't help but be shocked.


Rene, who is usually quite curious, would refuse to explore the capital.


'Huh?'


...Wait a minute.


"Miss."


When I called out to her with a frown, Rene turned her head away.


It seemed like something had stung her.


"This isn't your first time in the capital, is it?"


"..."


Rene remained silent.


After all, Rene had even gone to the realm of the dead without permission.


It was absurd to think that Rene had never been to the capital.


Wasn't the setting that she didn't go outside because of her mother's death...?


I even began to think that she had now made a suitable excuse to go outside.


Rene, who seemed offended by my sharp gaze, replied curtly.


"Let's register for the entrance exam first."


"I suppose so."


It wasn't a bad suggestion, so I accepted it obediently.


If I had pressed her further, Rene might have gotten genuinely angry.


"Do you know where the registration office is?"


"Yes."


Rene replied immediately.


I followed Rene, who now seemed to have no intention of hiding it.


The first day in the capital.


As I stared at Rene's back, I couldn't help but worry about her future.


The same goes for me, who will be with Rene.


...Maybe I should close my eyes for a moment.


"Hmm, it's dark."


This would be my future.


Damn it.
