Dragons were divided into six clans: Gold, Red, Blue, White, Black and Green.

Even dragons from the same clan could have different personalities.

Dragons with opposite colors lived like enemies.

The Blue Dragons had a bad relationship with the Red ones.

It wasn’t that they hated each other enough to kill.

And since they all lived in the Dragon Road as one kind, they avoided killing as much as possible.

‘What is with this life energy?’

Besides the tingling of the skin, it was becoming difficult for him to breathe.

If he wasn’t used to such situations, Jamie would have fainted.

He knew right away that he was in a troublesome situation.

‘I never thought I’d get caught up in such a situation. This could even be my death.’

Blue Dragons were known to have the mildest disposition among all kinds of dragons.

They were also known to be friendly to humans as they treated them the way humans treated their pets.

They didn’t kill, but if they wanted to, there was nothing that could stop them.

Since it was a Blue Dragon, there was a chance to get out of this.

‘If it was Red, Black or Green, I would have been dead a long time ago.’

If it were the Red, Black, or the most insidious Green, Jamie would have been dead right away.

He wasn’t sure if he should call himself lucky.

He looked into her eyes and said.

“You have already confirmed that I am not a dragon, so can’t you just let me go?”

“I don’t like that option.”

“…There is no reason not to let me go.”

“You are a bold one.”

Mayatrey grinned.

“When a human finds out that I am a dragon, they normally start begging for their life or ask to be killed as mercifully as possible. Ah! There were times when humans cried like crazy. In such cases, I just kill them.”

Fortunately, it seemed like the dragon wasn’t going to kill him right away.

Jamie smiled awkwardly.

“Don’t smile.”

Jamie still smiled.

Seeing that, Mayatrey approached him.

And lifted Jamie’s chin with her fingertips.

“I could just let you go.”

“Then let me go.”

“With the potential you possess, wouldn’t it be better to turn you into a dragon soldier?”

Mayatrey ignored Jamie’s words.

A dragon soldier was an artificial creature made with a dragon’s power.

A warrior with solid power.

The strength of the dragon soldier was determined by the potential that creature had originally possessed.

“I think you can be made into a Master level dragon soldier.”

“…”

“Won’t you say no?”

If Jamie’s potential was used to create a dragon soldier, then a monster higher than a Master level would definitely be born.

“W-why are you doing this to a child?”

“Isn’t it too late to utter such statements now?”

Jamie was speechless.

Was the dragon really trying to turn him?

Jamie frowned. How long has it been since he had received this new opportunity? Not even a God! He was going to lose his life to a lizard!

‘I didn’t even get a proper revenge, I can’t die in vain like this!’

Jamie tried to talk more.

“But why are you killing dragons? Isn’t sister a dragon too?”

“Huh? Sister bullshit! Those human words don’t work on me.”

Tch.

Jamie clicked his tongue.

Mayatrey thought that the kid in front of her was pretty weird, but he wasn’t bad for a human.

Despite that, she had no intention of answering him.

“I don’t need to tell you.”

Jamie didn’t hesitate to ask the next question.

“Is it because of that person?”

Halt!

Mayatrey stopped walking.

Jamie turned his head and looked at her. The vertically elongated pupils of hers were staring at him.

And powerful life energy, incomparable to that of before, was stirring the cave.

Jamie felt out of breath.

He couldn’t even groan. Was this the current gap between him and a dragon?

‘Damn it…’

He was about to lose consciousness, when the life energy stopped.

“Kuak! Kuaaagh-kuak!”

As soon as it disappeared, he was able to breathe, and nausea came up to his head.

He felt dizzy, as if his head had been shaken nonstop.

Through that gap, Mayatrey’s voice was heard.

“If you ask me about that one more time, you will turn into something not dead and not alive.”

She warned as she walked towards the entrance.

Jamie raised his eyebrows.

‘Is it because of that?’

Not definite, but he had a vague feeling.

Jamie decided to venture out to make it certain.

“Didn’t your clan acknowledge him?”

“…”

“So they sent a subjugation group to kill him, and you betrayed your clan to save him?”

Drop!

Powerful magic created a giant pit at the bottom of the cave.

She suddenly appeared in front of Jamie.

Nails pointed at his head at a speed that Jamie couldn’t see. She was sincere. She definitely wanted to kill Jamie.

But Jamie didn’t even blink his eyes.

“You are too young.”

A gust of wind blew.

His emerald hair fluttered.

Jamie saw the sharp claws of her stopping right in front of him.

“From the beginning you had no intention of killing me or turning me into a dragon soldier. right?”

Even a Blue Dragon could treat a human like an ant if they made up their mind.

But Mayatrey didn’t.

All the threatening to kill him and turn him into a dragon soldier was conveyed in playful tones.

Of course, when Jamie said something that really annoyed her, she’d turn serious.

Just like now.

“After all, if you were curious about who I was, you could have brainwashed me with mind magic, but you didn’t.”

If Mayatrey had made up her mind, Jamie would have already become her slave.

But that didn’t happen.

“You are young. And good. I can’t even believe that a dragon would act like this.”

Mayatrey looked at Jamie with threatening eyes but didn’t answer.

She withdrew her long claws. And turned her head slightly.

“This is the last time. Keep in mind that there won’t be another chance.”

Emotionless words.

This time, Jamie knew that she was serious, so he went silent and shut his lips.

Mayatrey shook her head and then sighed.

“You are a strange human. That much I will give you.”

“Then…”

“Right. I am the main character of the story that you humans know.”

Falling in love with a human was the cause of Mayatrey’s settlement in the mountain.

With sad eyes, she spoke to Jamie.

“The story I am going to tell you from now on will be the truth, and not full of lies like those rumors. So listen carefully.”

She started talking.


Swoosh!

The rain was falling heavily.

Lars stood on a rock.

The winds were so strong that even the rock he was standing on shook.

“Jamie. Where are you?”

He came down after saying all that stuff to Sears, but Jamie was nowhere to be seen.

Lars was now in the executioner form and was getting quite tired.

But for the sake of finding Jamie, he didn’t mind it.

“I will definitely find you.”

Lars went back to searching again.


“It was 700 years ago. The first time I met him.”

Mayatrey recalled her old memories.

“His name was Canon. He was a dark magician.”

“Dark magician?!”

Jamie’s eyes widened at the word his ears had just heard.

‘Why would a dragon fall in love with a dark magician?’

Dragons were the masters of white magic. Dark magicians were to them nothing but the embodiment of pure evil and corrupted people.

That was the reason why Jamie hated them in the past.

“It must be shocking. A dragon falling in love with a dark magician.”

“Yes, well… Shocking.”

“But Canon was different from other dark magicians. He was special.”

“What was special about him?”

“Unlike other dark magicians, he used dark magic as a tool to achieve his own purpose. A tool to reach the truth of the world.”

Jamie’s expression went stiff.

He didn’t know the truth of the world that Canon was trying to find, but using dark magic…

Mayatrey continued.

“And aside from the dark magic, he had unparalleled skills among humans. It was because he was a 9th class.”

“… No way. For thousands of years, humans haven’t been able to reach 9th class.”

“Listen carefully. You will know the reason soon. Me and Canon went on many adventures to discover the truth of the world.”

They were looking for a lot of secrets.

Not just the ancient ruins but also forests and deserts that had existed for a long time.

They saw a lot and experienced a lot.

Some failed, and some were successful.

“Canon was such a wonderful person. Surely humans are inferior to us, but he wasn’t inferior to me. Rather, I learned a lot from him.”

Canon was a human being wiser than the dragon race, famous for its wisdom.

Two years passed like that, and the two learned a lot. They were sure to be able to reach the truth of the world with just some more time.

It was then that the dragon clan intervened.

“I don’t know how they found it, but I was contacted by our lord.”

[Bring the human who accompanies you.]

She was happy at first.

It seemed like The clan acknowledged Canon.

Canon was a bit nervous, but chances to converse with the dragon clan were rare, so he complied with the request.

The problem came next.

[Canon. You are a sin that shouldn’t exist.]

Lord’s judgement.

All the dragons moved to kill Canon.

Mayatrey defended him to the fullest, but the dragons ignored her.

Mayatrey and Canon kept running away. However, they didn’t have enough time to escape.

“We headed to the ancient ruins we had seen a long time ago. It was a place where only one person could enter, so we had promised to enter at a later time.”

A relic holding powerful magic.

There could be dangers lurking around, but Mayatrey decided it was better to face the hazards than facing her clan.

Canon was worried about her, but Mayatrey reassured him that she would only be punished and not killed.

Canon fled to the ruins, and Mayatrey, captured by the dragons, was exiled for a thousand years.

“How nice it would have been if it had ended there.”

A Thousand years was a long time for a dragon, but it was also a time that would flow quickly.

As decades passed, Canon reappeared.

“At that time, Canon had reached the truth of the world.”

Canon risked his life and appeared before the Dragon Lord.

Countless dragons surrounded him. No matter how strong he was, surviving a battle against many dragons was impossible.

But Canon was brave. He was furious as he fought the dragons.

‘Why are you standing by? Why are you turning their eyes away from the truth of the world!’

All the dragons gathered there were old ones that had lived for more than 5000 years.

If there were young dragons, his words would’ve made them confused, but not the old ones.

The annihilation began again.

Canon wasn’t easily defeated. He broke through the siege and rescued Mayatrey from exile.

And the chase began.

“He and I arrived on this land. It was a huge mountain. I thought we would buy some time by hiding here, but he showed up.”

Black Dragon Aegos.

Young, but endowed with tremendous power.

He destroyed the place without mercy.

Mayatrey and Canon had no choice but to fight against him.

They fought nonstop for days.

In the process, the colossal mountain was destroyed and took the form of ranges.

“It was an intense battle, and we were victorious.”

But was it really a victory?

The dragons stopped the chase.

Because the reason for it has disappeared.

“Canon was dead.”

Canon was hit directly by Aegos’s breath and eventually died.

“Right. The end of the story was true. I cried over his death and I still cry till day.”

Her eyes didn’t show it, but her heart seemed to be wailing.

“I thought that I should be happy that it ended like this. But…”

Mayatrey’s eyes turned serious.

“The clan started erasing everything about Canon. Not just his life, but even traces of his existence.”

She felt enraged.

“So, here, I stayed here to protect Canon’s traces.”

Her eyes were filled with sadness.

Anger towards her clan.

Sorrow for the one she loved.

Guilt for not protecting him.

Hearing all that, Jamie thought.

‘The Dragon God intervened.’

People were unaware, but all dragons were actually priests of a God.

They believe in Braman, their parent and creator, the Dragon God.

‘That was why they tried to wipe out Canon at any cost.’

The truth of the world that Canon discovered.

It was clear that the evil deeds of the 12 Gods occurred after Diablo Volfir’s death.

‘The reason he learned dark magic must have been to use it as a key to find my traces.’

How did Canon even know about Diablo Volfir?

And how did he discover the secrets hidden by the 12 Gods?

Too many questions, but it seemed like Canon hadn’t told everything to Mayatrey. She lived here in pain while harboring various emotions.

“Is there a tombstone of Canon here?”

“Why?”

“Even as a dark magician, he was a great magician. As a magician, I also want to see that he exists for real.”

From what he heard so far, Mayatrey was a good-natured dragon. And she was a dragon who knew how to rejoice at the words of the one she loved.

“There is nothing I can’t show you. Follow me.”

The restraints were lifted.

Rubbing his throbbing wrists, Jamie followed her.

And his eyes widened as he reached a huge cavity.

“That…”

“What?”

“A-nothing.”

He was about to utter something without realizing.

Jamie couldn’t stop his trembling lips, so he covered them with his hands.

He kept staring at the tombstone in the centre of the cavity.

A bracelet was on it.

‘It is my bracelet!’

The Past.

One of the Diablo Volfir’s 3 artefacts, was placed there.
