The Misfit of Demon King Academy - Chapter 96.1
I’m able to grasp the general circumstances from that.
“In other words, you’re a human type magic?” (Arnos)
Eleonor’s eyes go round in surprise.
“…..That’s amazing Arnos-kun. You really did understand.” (Eleonor)
“I had also theorised about creating humanoid type magic. I even created the formula to experiment with.” (Arnos)
“….Did it work?” Eleonor asks a bit timidly.
“I didn’t try it.” (Arnos)
“You’ll understand if you consider it a bit. It would be an act of sheer madness.” (Arnos)
Eleonor smiles in relief.
“That’s right. It really is…..” (Eleonor)
Eleonor was looking down as she uttered those words but now she looks up.
“But 2000 years ago there was a person that reached that height of madness. Did you know him Arnos-kun? The commander of the Gairadeite demon king subjugation force?” (Eleonor)
Thats a nostalgic title. His power was inferior to Kanon but his obsession in defeating the mazoku was bottomless.
“Commander Jerga had a strong grudge against the mazoku and that didn’t change after the demon king of tyranny died and the world was separated by the walls. Someday the wall will disappear. Someday the demon king of tyranny will reincarnate. He prepared for those times. He believed his fight would never end until the demon king of tyranny was completely destroyed, so he created the hero academy to preserve and pass on his grudge against the demon king to future generations of children.” (Eleonor)
“Stupid is the only thing you can say to that.” (Arnos)
“Yeah, that’s right. That’s what I think as well. At that time there were also people who thought like Arnos-kun does.” (Eleonor)
I don’t even need to ask who that was.
“The hero Kanon.” (Arnos)
“Indeed. Kanon objected to the establishment of the academy. The demon king of tyranny only wants peace he kept saying. He only did what he did because it was a war and he was protecting his people. His position was no different from ours. Sadly, even though he was the hero not many people believed him……” (Eleonor)
It’s not hard to see why that was.
It wouldn’t be possible to count the number of humans I killed in the great war.
If such persuasion was possible back then then I wouldn’t have needed to create the wall.
“The hero Kanon insisted that the demon king laid down his life to create that wall but as expected everyone thought that was a lie. Kanon was kind about the mazoku and said he wanted the demon king of tyranny to be reborn and have a fresh start.” (Eleonor)
Did everyone think the kind Kanon who killed the demon king was lied to and he believed it?
It now seems that Eleonor was born after the demon king of tyranny was renamed to Avos Dillheavia.
“But after meeting Arnos-kun and learning you are the demon king of tyranny I thought Kanon wasn’t lying after all.” (Eleonor)
“Why’s that?” (Arnos)
“You don’t kill for no reason and the <Gavel> incident. If you hadn’t stopped its time everyone would have died.” (Eleonor)
“That was only by chance.” (Arnos)
“So that’s the pretence you’re going with.” (Eleonor)
Eleonor raises her finger.
“Anyway, in the end, the opinion of commander Jerga carried more weight and the hero academy was established.” (Eleonor)
“What about Kanon?” (Arnos)
“…..He seemed to give up and decided to believe in the future mazoku and humans. A future where the mazoku will not attack the humans and the humans wouldn’t be stupid enough to start a war with them.” (Eleonor)
It’s really naive but that was that mans determination.
If no one draws the bow then no hatred can be born. Was that his belief?
“However, Commander Jerga was well aware of how easily hatred can fade with time. Anger too will also disappear one day. No matter how much you talk about it and establish the hero academy those that fought in the great war will one day die and that hatred for the mazoku will disappear.” (Eleonor)
Humans don’t live long. Forget 1000 years in just several hundred years hatred and the fact that there was even a war would disappear from peoples hearts. Nothing you write in a history book will alter that fact.
“And that was what commander Jerga was most afraid of.” (Eleonor)
“And that’s why he turned his origin into <Ask>?” (Arnos)
Eleanor’s eyes widened and she laughed.
“……You really are amazing. You’ve understood everything……” (Eleonor)
“Hardly. When I used <Ask> I heard a strange voice that’s all.” (Arnos)
I didn’t remember right away because it gave off a different impression from his real voice but thinking back it was Jerga.
“2000 years ago the gods also meddled in the great war. It’s not within the scope of human power to turn their origin into magic power but if the holy water and a gods power are combined it would be possible.” (Arnos)
The formula for <Ask> is 2000 years old but when I used it I got a different result. The only reason for that would be if the world’s system was rewritten by a god.
“Yes, it’s like Arnos-kun says. Commander Jerga threw away his life and entrusted his feelings, resentment, hatred and revenge for the mazoku to <Ask>. All the textbooks in the hero academy were altered to say that when you use <Ask> you hear Kanons voice and if you follow it you can become a hero.” (Eleonor)
So all the students think that’s Kanon’s voice?
“The more you use <Ask> the more feelings of revenge and hatred against the mazoku will be planted in you by the magic. Those in Jergakanon will be told in detail how cruel the mazoku were to humans. With this, Jerga’s thoughts and memories will never cease and will hold on until the rebirth of the demon king of tyranny.” (Eleonor)
I knew that man held a grudge more than anyone else but peace was just around the corner.
A humans life is short so I thought I would spare that life.
All of this is probably due to my naivety. 2000 years ago I should have destroyed that man.
“I expect Kanon couldn’t watch this happening?” (Arnos)
“Kanon firmly opposed commander Jergas magic. Though their numbers were small Kanon did have supporters. Commander Jerga probably thought they might become difficult later on.” (Eleonor)
“So he had him killed?” (Arnos)
