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

“Is the young master still asleep? I hope he continues to stay quiet.”


One of the servants spoke in a cold voice.


It was clear who the ‘young master’ was referring to.


The head of the Arsene Viscounty.


He was the young master these servants were talking about.


However, there was not even an ounce of respect or loyalty to be found in their tone or gaze.


Not a single person dared to criticize such remarks or talk about etiquette towards a noble.


Instead, they simply nodded their heads as if they agreed-.


“I heard he’s been locked up in his room for days and hasn’t come out? They say he’s even refusing to eat.”


“The parasite who only knew how to eat is having a hard time. Not bad. If he keeps this up…….”


The man laughed, revealing his slimy madness and murderous intent.


As the ominous atmosphere spread, the servant who was receiving the story hastily raised a finger to his lips.


“Shhh, be quiet! What if he hears?”


“What does it matter if that bastard hears?”


“That’s true, heh.”


The servants burst into laughter at the same time as if something was funny.


Soon, their business here seemed to be over, and the footsteps that had been echoing through the hallway gradually faded away.


And that story.


“‥….”


A young boy was eavesdropping with his ear pressed against the door.


* * *


“Tomorrow, I’m supposed to die.”


I muttered, chewing on the conversation between the two servants.


It was about how the knights of the ‘Six Families’ were going to kill Adel, or rather ‘me’.


They were even going to travel all the way to this remote part of the empire.


“This situation is getting ridiculous.”


The last descendant of the Arsene family, Adel, had offended the six families, and they had finally sent knights.


That was something I, the original author of the novel, had written myself.


It felt like the setting I had created was now strangling me.


A strange excitement began to rise up my spine.


My breathing began to quicken, and my heart pounded faster.


One of Adel’s traits, [Interest], was welcoming this absurd situation.


“Whew…….”


I let out a sigh as if I was vomiting.


Three days.


That was how long it had been since I, the author, had possessed Adel’s body.


During that time, I had begged for a way to return to reality.


I also missed my parents who were in reality.


However, I couldn’t find a way to return to the present day, and I also realized that I would never see my parents again.


In the process, I,


Was gradually assimilating into the character of ‘Arsene Adel’.


At a frighteningly fast pace-.


“He looks so gloomy.”


Chuck.


I fell from the door and stared at the full-length mirror on one side of the room.


An impressive man was standing in the mirror.


Ominous crimson hair and eyebrows and lips that drew a straight line in contrast.


The most noticeable of these was the ‘pattern’ engraved on the nape of the neck.


“How am I supposed to hide this…….”


I sighed, scratching the nape of my neck.


As long as this is revealed, I will surely die miserably even if I survive the upcoming crisis.


Fortunately, I’ll be able to hide it if I use the [ Darkness ] attribute.


That's what the original Adel did.


The problem is that I can’t handle Adel’s attributes at the moment.


Because I was a modern person, not Adel, not long ago.


There was a reason why I was so nervous about hiding this pattern.


‘Half-Demon Bloodline.’


This is what the pattern on the neck means.


The Arsene family was originally a half-breed that inherited the blood of the Demon race.


Thanks to the power inherent in that blood, they were one of the seven families that were counted as the best in the Empire, but they fell into ruin after being used as scapegoats.


After all.


The bloodline of the Arsene family…….


Adel.


I was the only one left.


That was the background of the character ‘Arsene Adel’ and the reason why he became a villain.


Adel sought revenge and targeted the children of the Six Families, the protagonist's party.


He eventually failed and asked me, the original author, for help.


"Revenge-"


It must have sounded good to the original owner of this body.


But it was unrealistic.


【 Arsene Adel 】


: Race - [ Half Demon ]


: Tendency - [ Chaos ]


: Talent - [ Position Exchange ‘Ⅰ’ ]


: Trait - [ Interest ] [ Absorption ] [ Killing Intent ] [ Darkness ] [ Mana Manipulation ]


: Mana - [ 341 ]


I quietly brought up Adel's status window.


Adel's talent was nothing to scoff at.


In the first place, he must have been given enough talent by me to survive in such a cruel environment and become the strongest villain.


However, it was not enough to compare to the children of the six families.


"Who would have thought he could strangle me like this..."


I gave my novel's protagonists a more brilliant talent than anyone else.


I wanted a charming villain, so I didn't even think about letting him defeat the protagonist.


So if he were to face the protagonist's party right now, it would be obvious that the result would be a clear defeat.


"It's time to hide for now."


Originally, the fruit is sweeter the riper it is.


To survive or seek revenge, it was dangerous to be out in the open.


Now I had to curl up like a fetus and absorb nutrients.


And the nutrients I need right now are the methods of utilizing traits and mana.


But right now, I'm in a body that can't handle mana...…


'It's not that I can't feel mana, but that's all.'


I can definitely feel a heterogeneous aura inside my body.


I'm not stupid enough not to know that it's mana.


An aura that is as heavy as a boulder but does not interfere with my body.


Rather, it feels like my body will become more comfortable the more I have it.


"Then what do I do?"


I can't handle it.


It was like a pie in the sky.


That's exactly what it was like.


A situation where I can feel mana but can't handle it.


I have to awaken my traits and mana by tomorrow.


If I don't, I'm sure I'll die at the hands of the Six Families.


I have a headache. A headache.


"Damn it."


As I cursed, I grabbed my crimson hair and tore at it.


Talent is the only thing that can be counted on in my novel.


That's why in the original, he escaped after slaughtering all the knights of the Six Families with his young body.


Ha…….


Did I end up like this because I tried to make him look unnecessarily strong?


I would rather have escaped by using some kind of strategy to avoid the gaze of the Six Families.


If I had written it that way, there would have been a way.


That's when I was just rolling my feet around.


Crash.


The paper on the desk emitted a faint light.


I wondered what that was, and then I realized what it was.


The paper that Adel had brought with him before putting me in the novel.


I looked at it to see if it would be of any help after I came here, but I remember throwing it on the desk as it had nothing written on it except the words, 'This is a gift. Ask for it when you need it.'


But.


At this moment?


“I shouldn’t expect much.”


I said that, but I moved my feet just in case.


Then I saw the paper that had clearly changed.


It had changed quite a bit, but…….


This time, nothing was written on it.
