Trash of the Count’s Family – Chapter 420 – Going Until the End (1)

Cale could feel his heart beating wildly. The wind and fire were slowly becoming stronger inside his body.

– We.

However, Cale had a frown on his face.

– The reason it was difficult for us to fight against the ancient White Star was because of that darkness and light.

The Super Rock commented before the glutton added on.

– In the end, we are all creatures that are vulnerable to the light and darkness of the sky. There is no way we cannot be affected by them.

People without the darkness attribute supposedly became weaker underneath that black wall.

Ooooooooong-

Cale could see a black presence surrounding the Bear King and the Lion King who were outside the red whirlwind.

The black presence maintained its black color when it touched the grass and the trees, however, it was hard to see it when it touched shadows or the night sky.

– Human! That must be why we couldn’t see it!

Dorph’s black presence was not visible when it touched the darkness. Cale agreed with Raon’s comment before continuing to channel the ancient powers inside his body.

“Young master-nim.”
“Please step back.”

Saint Jack stopped approaching and moved back after hearing Cale’s stern response.

Swiiiiiiiiish.

The wind and fire whirlwind started to grow larger with Cale at the center. Jack stopped moving after seeing Beacrox with Clopeh on his back next to him.

“Hoooo. Are you thinking about fighting us?”

Dorph grabbed the black presence surrounding him and struck down. Boom! A long black spear stabbed into the ground.

“You should be weaker under my darkness. You think you can do it?”

His voice seemed to be sneering at Cale. A voice came out of the center of the red whirlwind at that moment.

“Miss Rosalyn! Eruhaben-nim!”

Cale urged Rosalyn and Eruhaben on. The teleportation magic circle. He needed them to quickly cast their spells and send people to the capital.

‘…This is too slow.’

Something was weird.

It was one thing for Rosalyn to be slow because she had used a lot of her powers during the last battle, however, Eruhaben was also much slower at casting the spell than normal.
This ancient Dragon was supposed to be the fastest when it came to casting spells!
However, these two were doing their best to quickly cast the spell.

“It’s slow!”

Rosalyn bit down on her lips. She frowned as she looked down at her hands. Her red mana, the mana she needed to gather to cast the teleportation spell, was moving slowly. That was making it take longer to cast a spell. It was as if she was trying to cast a spell in a world that was 1/4th slower than normal. She heard Dorph’s voice at that moment.

“I thought I already told you. You become weaker if you don’t have the darkness attribute. You can’t look down on my powers like that.”
“Ah.”

Rosalyn let out a gasp.

Mana is a living being. It could be considered as something that was on the opposite end of the darkness attribute.

She seemed to understand why the mana around her and in her body was moving slowly. They were underneath the black wall. The mana seemed to be trying its best to respond to Rosalyn’s calling, but it was having trouble because there were many obstacles, as if it was stuck in a swamp.

‘What do I do?’

Rosalyn’s pupils were shaking.

“Focus!”

She heard a voice snap her out of it at that moment.

‘Eruhaben-nim?’

Rosalyn started to turn toward the side where she heard the ancient Dragon’s voice.

“Don’t look at me. Focus!’

Flinch.

Rosalyn’s head stopped moving. She stopped biting on her lips and moved her hands forward.
He was right.

‘I need to focus as Eruhaben-nim mentioned.’

She needed to channel her slow mana and get it out of this swamp right now. Rosalyn heard the Bear King’s voice as she tried to focus.

“Wow, this is very slow even for a Dragon. Am I wrong? It is too slow for an ancient Dragon. Are you not feeling well?”

‘What? He’s not feeling well?’

Rosalyn flinched.
She tried to turn toward Eruhaben once again. However, she could not do so.

Ooooooooong.

A long black spear headed toward Rosalyn.

“I can’t let you do as you please.”

Dorph had thrown the long black spear. Rosalyn could see the black spear that continued to get bigger until it became a large black arrow flying toward her.

Clang!

However, Sir Rex moved in front of her to block it.

“We must go to the capital.”
“Hurry up.”

Hannah took her sword out as she moved next to Sir Rex.

‘Yes, this is the priority right now.’

Rosalyn closed her eyes after looking at Sir Rex and Hannah’s backs. The teleportation was most important right now. They had no way of knowing what was going on at the capital.
It was okay to trust her comrades.

“Mary, Tasha!”

Rosalyn stopped paying attention to everything after hearing Cale calling for those two people as she focused on casting the teleportation spell.

Someone brushed past her at that moment. It was Mary. There was a black spear in her hand as well. It was made with the dead mana that she had absorbed.

Boom! Boom!

Dark Elves descended from the sky. Tasha was leading the group. She charged toward Dorph’s black arrow.

Swoooooooosh-

The wind made her as fast as an arrow.

“Mary!”
“Yes!”

Mary threw the black spear in her hand. Tasha grabbed onto it. This was a weapon she could only touch because she was a Dark Elf. She became the wind as she took Mary’s spear and slammed down on Dorph’s black arrow.

Baaaaaang!

There was a large black explosion. Sir Rex started to speak.

“Did she block it – ah!”

He could see Tasha being pushed away.

“Ugh!”

He could also see Dorph’s large black arrow that was still flying toward them.

“F*ck!”

Rex could see a red whirlwind flying toward the black arrow after someone swore. It was Cale.
He was charging toward Dorph’s power that was aiming for Rosalyn.

‘Mary and the Dark Elves should be getting stronger too under this darkness!’

He started to frown as he thought about Mary’s spear that exploded as Tasha got pushed away.

‘The golems are getting stronger, so why? Is it that Lion King Dorph is stronger than Mary and Tasha combined?’

– No.

‘…What?’

He heard the Super Rock’s voice.

– I clearly said beings born from darkness.

He recalled what the Super Rock had said earlier.

‘Beings born from darkness become stronger underneath that darkness. On the other hand, any lifeform without the darkness attribute becomes weaker.’

The Super Rock had not said that people with the darkness attribute became stronger.

– Beings born from darkness. That means they cannot have any life force.

Cale thought about the only things that became stronger under this black wall.

Golems. Only the golems had gone berserk.

– Necromancers, Dark Elves, and black mages. These three existences did not get stronger nor weaker under this black wall.

Cale reached Dorph’s black arrow. It was too large to be an arrow and looked more like a sharp wall that was flying toward him.

– But there is a difference. Both necromancers and Dark Elves are people who use things that are already there.

Necromancers used bones while Dark Elves used powers that exist in the world to meet their needs.

– But black mages are different. They use black magic to create something from death.

Cale recalled the golems that were made with black magic.

“Attack!”

Boom, boom.

He thought about these large monsters that were charging toward the tower and Cale’s group following Dorph’s orders.

– This is the reason the black mages follow Dorph and the White Star. These people could create a battlefield where they could be at their strongest.

In the end, it meant that only golems got stronger under this black wall.

“Sir Rex, I leave it to you!”
“Yes!”

Sword master Hannah started to run toward a golem. She was not the only one. Some of the Dark Elf warriors and Beacrox were running toward the golems as well. Dorph’s order, the golems’ attacks, and the movement of the allies…

All of these things had happened in mere seconds.

Cale reached his hand toward the black arrow. He needed to block this. The most important thing right now was to make it so Rosalyn and Eruhaben could cast their spells.

Cale channeled his ancient powers. They too were slowed down under this darkness.

– … This is hard for me.

The glutton priestess commented, but Cale continued to channel the powers inside him. It was at that moment.

Boom!

His heart was beating wildly.

The Vitality of the Heart that resided within the Indestructible Shield started to move. The shield and the heart. The Vitality of the Heart had merged with the shield; however, he could still feel them as different identities. If the Indestructible Shield was the person, the Vitality of the Heart had become its heart and continued to show that it was still alive.

The power that was always silent revealed its powers. At that moment.

– I.

The Fire of Destruction started to speak.

– I died while fighting against the golems and black mages.

The warrior who fought against the golems. The Fire of Destruction.

– It was dark at that time as well. The sky had been dark.

People without the darkness attribute had been weaker like right now.

– I had to burn up at that time.

The Fire of Destruction had channeled more power than ever before. An endless horde of these large black monsters and the black mages controlling them had charged forward to him from the distance like a tidal wave.

The Fire of Destruction had stood in front of everyone else at that time.

– I was the only source of light.

Fire was a source of light as well.

Boom!

Cale felt his heart beating wildly once more and reached his hand forward. A rose gold colored thunderbolt appeared in his hand.

It was at that moment.

– As for me.

He could hear the voice of the Sound of the Wind.

– I am free in both darkness and light.

Her husky voice sounded a bit jovial. That statement stuck in Cale’s mind.

– It is because I am the wind.

The ground, the sky, the darkness, and even the light. Nothing can stop the wind. It was the only presence that could go wherever it wanted.

Wind was added onto the rose gold thunderbolt. A large amount of power was gathering in Cale’s hand.

– Grab it.
– It is okay to grab it.

Cale clenched his hand after hearing the voices of both the wind and the fire.
The head of the black arrow. Once Cale grabbed it…

Baaaaaaaaaang!

There was a loud explosion.

“Shit!”

Was there a need to know all this?

“The important thing right now is that I can stay like this until the end.”

A fist covered in a thunderbolt struck down toward the black arrow again. Cale had to lower his head at that moment.

– Human! Duck!

Cale could see a spear of light shooting down as he responded to Raon’s voice.

Baaaaang!

Raon’s black shield blocked the spear. Raon’s casting was slower similar to Eruhaben and Rosalyn, however, he was able to use his spell at the right time.

“I’m here as well.”

The Bear King smiled mischievously as he waved at Cale.

– Human! I will take on that Bear King! It’s fine when you or the crown prince make fun of the enemy like this, but it is annoying to see that bastard doing it!!

‘No.’

Cale shook his head.

– Human, you take care of that damn Dorph who keeps pretending to be weak!

‘No.’

He could not let Raon take on the Bear King while he handled Dorph.

“It’s ready!”

Cale heard Rosalyn’s voice at that moment. He quickly turned his head to see a large amount of red mana surrounding Rosalyn.

“Oh my, That won’t do.”

Dorph threw another spear from inside the black wall. Cale dodged it by moving back.

Baaaaang!

The black spear exploded where Cale had been standing and the debris rose like a whirlwind.

“Young master-nim.”

Cale heard a stealthy voice as he moved back. He turned his head to see Ron standing there. The old man started to speak as soon as they made eye contact.

“Who is going?”

He was asking who was going to the capital.

– We can go right away.

He could also hear Eruhaben’s voice in his mind. The white gold mana was fluctuating around Eruhaben as well. Cale quickly looked around.
Rosalyn and Eruhaben. Everybody with magic abilities other than Raon had to go. It was because they expected that airships were attacking the capital. They needed magic to cast flight magic and long-distance attacks.

‘Sir Rex, Hannah, and Jack!’

Rex and the Sun God twins had to go as well. People in the capital will only relax if they were there.

‘Also!’

Mary and the Dark Elves needed to go as well. They were needed in case there were black mages on the airships. They could also have some golems as well.

“Young master-nim.”

Cale observed Ron who was looking at him.

Ron needed to go in his place. Eruhaben-nim would be there as well, but Ron would be able to quickly figure out what to do for many different situations.

He also needed Ron to take care of Clopeh. Beacrox needed to go as well to handle the enemy knights.

“… Young master-nim!”
“Yeah?”

Cale turned his head after hearing Ron’s urgent shout. Ron pulled Cale toward him. Cale turned his head to see multiple spears of lights.

“Based on my observations… Cale Henituse, if I attack you or injure you in any way, the people here can’t leave.”

The gently smiling Bear King’s hand reached toward Cale.

“Attack.”

Oooooong-

The spears of light immediately started to fly toward Cale.

– Human!

Raon urgently tried to cast a shield.

“Guess I should join in.”

Dorph sent numerous small black spears toward Rosalyn and the others at the same time.

“Raon, block those!”

Cale shouted before sending Ron behind him and bringing out the Indestructible Shield again.

– …So hard.

‘Ah.’

He heard the glutton priestess’s tired voice before a silver shield that was much weaker than usual appeared.

This power of wood was the one struggling the most underneath the darkness.

“Shit!”

Cale still cast the shield for now.

Baaaaaang! Baaaang!

Explosions could soon be heard in many places. Raon’s shield blocked the black arrows Dorph sent toward the others. The Bear King’s spears of light did not manage to reach Cale either.

‘Huh? Choi Han?’

Cale could see Choi Han standing in front of his shield. He pointed his sword toward the numerous spears of light.

That sword started to move.

“… How-”

Cale’s pupils started to shake.

A shining black aura shot out from Choi Han. It then created an image.

It was a Dragon. No, it wasn’t a Dragon like Raon but an East Asian Dragon (Yong) he often saw on Earth. ( https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_dragon Long in Chinese, Yong in Korean, naturally, we are going with the Korean )

Choi Han was slashing from top to bottom.

“Go.”

The black Yong that was sparkling as it traveled up the sword, this Yong that didn’t have wings like Dragons, charged toward the spears of light.

Baaaaaaaaaang!

It then caused a large explosion. Cale blankly stared at what happened. He looked to be out of it as he started to speak.

“…Jung Soo-”

Grade 1 Ability User Choi Jung Soo.

Although the color was black, this Yong was definitely Choi Jung Soo’s most famous ‘White Miru’ ability.

“…Choi Jung Soo?”

Cale could see the records of the past charging in his mind like a tsunami. The records were charging toward his eyes. They looked ready to cover his sight.

It was at that moment. The person standing in front of the shield turned around.

“Cale-nim.”

Choi Han and Cale made eye contact.

“It’s me.”
“Ah.”

Cale could then feel the charging records disappear.

‘How can he use Choi Jung Soo’s ability-’

He wanted to ask how Choi Han could use Choi Jung Soo’s ability. However, Cale snapped out of it after hearing what Choi Han said next.

“Let’s send everybody other than you, Raon, and me.”

Cale slowly closed his eyes before opening them back. He could see Rosalyn and Eruhaben.

He started to speak.

“We’ll do that.”

Once Ron bowed his head…

Ooooooo-

The forest started to shake.

– We will head over first.

Cale smiled at Eruhaben’s comment.

His eyes could see the red mana and white gold mana that cut through the entire forest.

“…Did you?”

The Bear King’s expression stiffened. A teleportation magic circle appeared underneath everyone except Choi Han, Raon, and Cale.

“Even the soldiers in the rear……!”

The Bear King started to frown. The manas that cut through the forest created teleportation magic circles underneath the allied knights and soldiers who were outside the forest.

Cale lightly laughed as he started to speak.

“Did you really think a Dragon and the future Magic Tower Master would take this long to cast a spell for a few people?”

Ooooooong-

The teleportation spell started to activate.

“Stop them!”

The Bear King ordered the black mages in the golem cockpits while charging toward Rosalyn and Eruhaben who were casting the spells.

‘It will be difficult to destroy the capital if this many people go!’

They needed to slowly reveal the existence of the White Star to the world now. The first target to do that was the Mogoru. They could not let their plan be ruined.

“Who said you could stop them?”

Choi Han stepped in front of him to stop him. Cale started to smile.

Choi Han would handle the Bear King.

– Human! I will take care of Dorph! Something is odd. It was hard at first, but I feel like I can use my magic like normal now! Did I get used to it or something? I truly am great and mighty!

Raon would take care of Dorph. Cale slowly let the wind carry his body. His body started to float up.

“This is perfect.”

He needed to destroy the golems. Three. It was perfectly balanced.

– Quickly come to the capital while remaining conscious.

Paaaat!

The white gold light and red light seemed to explode as the teleportation commenced. Cale charged toward the golems who were trying to attack the teleporting people.

– Cale, it is hard to strike down with fiery thunderbolts from the sky because of the black wall.
Cale stood in front of the teleporting people while listening to the Fire of Destruction.

Boom. Boom. Boom.

The golem in the front charged at him with its axe.

– That was why I beat them all down in the past with my fists.

The Fire of Destruction would not have been a warrior if all he did was send down fiery thunderbolts. The reason he was a warrior was because he fought them head-on.

– Your body is unbelievably weak and has terrible stamina. You’ll find it hard to breathe, get tired quickly that you want to rest and want to run away.

Cale started to move toward the first golem as well. The golem swung its axe toward him. The warrior of the Fire of Destruction asked him a question.

– Can you do it?
“Yeah.”

Cale moved his fist forward. Kim Rok Soo was someone who would charge forward with a metal plate even when he didn’t know how to properly fall.

‘I will go until the end.’

Cale was someone who knew the weight of those words and someone who kept his word.

Slaking is good yeah, but being stutborn and idiotic about it and do all this sh1t all the time and make the fight he alway chose be even harder because he is weak like f*ck for never train his body is plain childish, idiotic and narrow-minded …
    I don’t even talk about all the times he said to want destroy the thing he don’t like (like the white crown), forgot or brush off realy crucial and important clue, hint, thin and intel and other like that for no-good and understanddable reason at all. Seriously, he his totaly crazy ??? He act worst than some teenager !!!
    Yeah, i like the story and all that but … still ! get a grip and make your choice !!! Stop to just go with the flow, and take a real stance for once ! And after doing it, do the thing to the end, and not half-backed like until now.

      I can already see what you want. You just want the typical OP MC plot. There’s literally nothing wrong with all the “problems” you listed. Just because the MC doesn’t want to become OP and wants a normal happy life does not mean he is a bad person. If you don’t like it then freaking stop reading the book, nobody wants to hear you complaining like a fucking kid. Even though Cale is a fictional character, he’s literally light years ahead of you in terms of maturity.

      He wants to be a slacker, he never expected things to go this way. In his other life as Kim Rok Soo he trained himself, he fought many battles and had scars all over his body. There was one chapter where he said that there was no need for him to train because he would be a slacker in the future

      Damn your reading comprehension… Atrocious, just atrocious.
      First off: it’s pretty clear that when you started reading this novel, you were expecting a munchkin. You want a story where the conflict is all superficial and you can get off on the high of a second-hand power trip. And if that’s the kind of story you want then go on. There are plenty out there for you. This is not one of them, the conflict is real and the mc has character flaws beyond “oh no! All of the women I encounter fall in love with me!”
      Second: Stories where the mc goes and trains to get stronger have one big problem… Training takes time. Which Cale does not have. Most stories will just gloss over the training in a few sentences, in order to keep the peace exciting while having some semblance of effort and growth. But these stories don’t often have anything else happen plot-wise during these training periods, because of course the mc has to be there for all the cool stuff. In this story there have only been a few times, within the first hundred chapters, where there was some semblance of a break for Cale within which he could have trained. But the scale of the story at the time couldn’t justify him training, so none took place.
      I really hope that you can find something that you actually enjoy reading. Reading something that you’re so dissatisfied with will just make you more miserable, so take a look at what you like in a story and go get it! You’re allowed to stop reading something you dislike, no matter how much time you’ve already put in.

        Yes, agree with you. Cale don’t have time at all to train, he don’t even have enough time to enjoy his new home. As you said, he HAD time in the first 150 chapters, before the war had started, but the things were going smooth, we didn’t even know who was the White Star, the world was basically in peace and it wouldn’t make sense for Cale train even if he wanted to. Before the time skips, we were informed that the others of Cale’s group were training, just bcs they wanted to, and Cale was enjoying his temporary slack life, just how the wanted to. In the end, I agree that Cale always almost sacrifice himself and act badly sometimes (like keeping everything for himself to not disturb the others and things like this) BUT THATS HIS CHARACTER! And that’s what makes him human and our Cale we love. Things like this is what makes the novel so amazing…

      How can you claim you like this story when you don’t even understand or like the MC?? If you really like it then you need to clear your head and CAREFULLY reread the story from the beginning while PAYING ATTENTION to ALL the details, because clearly you missed or didn’t understand a lot of things that were explained. The thing you seem to be the most ignorant of is that, as others have mentioned, originally the MC was not planning on fighting at all and even when he realized he would have to fight a bit, he had no way of knowing that it would reach anywhere close to the level it has, so there didn’t seem to be a need to train during those nine or so months he had near the beginning of the story. By the time he realized it was going to be very, very large scale he had no time for training, which you have to do for several hours almost every day for it to be most effective. If you don’t believe all of what I just pointed out, then do as I said at the beginning of this comment and CAREFULLY reread this story from the beginning while PAYING ATTENTION to ALL the details, since ignoring any details in this story can often be fatal to one’s ability to understand it.

      I always see you commenting on the previous chapters how you hate Cale, with him being weak and how he is selfish and manipulative etc etc. After a hundreds of chapters you are still here and commenting the same sh*t. SERIOUSLY, JUST STOP READING. Don’t stressed yourself out just because you don’t understand the main point of the story and Cale’s character! Tsk. So annoying.

      Poor ombre dude getting all the hate. Hahaha. His body is “weak” also he cant train his body even if he wants to tho he would never consider that.

      His body is human (well I’m assuming this atm) and he has been in that world for 2-3 years? Adding the fact that he mostly spent his time looking for his powers and solving problems just so he can live a slackers life! He doesnt have the time to “train” his “human” body nor will it show any improvements even if he does! He’s not saitama that had nothing major happening so he trained for 3 years everyday till he became Opm

      Of course Cale doesn’t notice things we do, we’re the readers, there are things we obviously understand because we see different perspectives, we see the whole picture.

      Cale isn’t omnipotent, he’s a human, he always has been, he has character flaws, he doesn’t understand other’s feelings, he’s never realized how important he was to others because he doesn’t value his own life as much as he claims he does.

      But he’s making an effort to change, he saw Choi Han in pain and he hated it, being told that everyone feels that way about himself made him understand to some degree what it’s like for the others. Now that Choi Han knows his secret, it’ll give him a incentive to communicate with his people in a better way.

      Cale is a human with flaws and issues, but he’s working to fix him, that makes him an incredibly well written character.

      You shouldn’t hate a character for having well written flaws, I can’t fault you for wanting to have a casual story with a main character you can project onto, but, this far into the story, you should know that that’s not what Cale or any of the characters are, you’re allowed to stop reading it, you can find a “better” story. Nobody is stopping you.

      I’m not trying to be rude, sorry if it came off that way, I just wanted to provide an civil explanation as someone who really loves this story.

      he could learn to fight, but would it make difference when the enemies that could potentially hurt him have been in it for years and have been training for years? it is an absurd margin that some training in free time wouldn’t be able to cover. he arrived in that world two years ago, and he fits in that world in other ways. but then you say, at least he could learn some basic moves. well, it still remains in the same line as before. he already has the power to protect himself on a certain level and training in his spare time will not bring about major changes for enemies who are above that. and he is already busy, he does not have a characterization of an ordinary fantasy character that follows a cliché trajectory line. it makes me think that if he tries to fight better or not it’s a tiny detail that isn’t worth it for readers to think about

      and about the details of the story, I believe it’s just for the sake of narrative. tcf deals with various elements and secondary issues, many things are dealt with without the reader’s knowledge because it would take A LOT of time. it is a little worrying how they jump from subject to subject, but this is on the part of the work. what i don’t understand is why you say he forgets details. cale, in various situations, make plans and raise previous questions. again, it would require several lines of text to show the mc’s thought process about everything, the work is already very extensive
      if I were to complain about something, it wouldn’t be the protagonist, but the structure and narrative of the work. but maybe this is common for some webnovels? the work repeats many phrases and makes things that could be dealt with more concisely in prolonged scenes. sometimes there is no space for the plot

      english isn’t my first language, there’s probably mistakes

    I honestly can’t take the Lion and Bear King seriously – the best thing I can say for them as villains is that they’re annoying as shit.

    Thanks for the chapter!

    Wow, see all these snowflakes in the comments who cannot handle their “fictional” idol being criticized. You do realize you don’t have to like all aspects of the story you like do you? Especially if you’re already 3/400 chapters invested in it. A lot of the things anoy me in this ln, but the good things overshadow the bad things by a lot so I keep reading.
    But I digress I actually just wanted to know if koreans say “fighting” or the korean translation?

      Criticism is fine, but complete hatred of a character for no reason other than them not being the character type you expected? Those are completely different. What people are responding to here is Ombre’s hissy fit at Cale not being a munchkin like you see in many isekai novels. Sure there’s not liking parts of a story, and I agree with you that there are some areas that could be improved, but this person is just trying to spread their own annoyance to make other people miserable for enjoying a story where conflict actually exists on a more than superficial level. If someone is 3 out of 400 chapters in and isn’t liking the story that much, they should drop it, and not set out to read something they dislike just to fuel their hatred of everyone else.

      To answer your “Fighting” question, yes, Koreans do say “fighting.”
      But when they say it, it’s connotation is more like, “you can do it!” or similar to the Japanese “Gambatte!”
      And they say it in English, but it’s more like, “Hwaiting” or “Pa-iting” since there’s no “f” sound in Korean.
      Just an FYI for anyone else who was curious too

    The comment section is on 🔥!!
    Its not like Ombre dude can receive notifs about the replies but it’s our nature to rant if something doesnt feel nice~
    We know Cale dont wanna train coz he’s already surrounded by people who regularly train so why bother? He’d rather enjoy the mini breaks he had and take a good rest. He’s human too, and his hobby is slacking (i relate to that pretty well it’s my favorite hobby too) so he’s rather slack off on precious day offs, or he’s going to break due to overwork sooner or later… 😔
    Give our unlucky human who keeps on getting dragged on all sorts of mess a break~

    Lol how can you expect Cale to become strong by training while he barely gets any time to do it.

    He is constantly busy, yes the others in his team got super strong by training but it was due to Cale’s efforts during the little rest periods that Lock, Choi Han and Rosalyn could get the equipment (wolf king’s diary, swords, armours, magic stones and money) and guidance.

    And it is not like that Cale doesn’t ever tries to get stronger. We has strengthened his ancient powers every chance he got, and those powerups have even terrified his allies (who have done nothing but strength training) and he can’t eat his ancient powers like WS as then he would be truly clueless about the Ancient times which is basically ace in this battle field.

    Ombre37 its okay not to like a character, you dont have to.
    But, criticising Cale based on the lack of your understanding is pissing me off!!!! Like… Have you and I read the same story…. Cale doesn’t have time!!!! Like… He barely manage to eat!!! How is he supposed to train to become stronger!!! THAT need alot of TIME!!! so far the only break Cale had was the 9 or so months at the beginning of the story before the first war!! How is he supposed to know that there is gonna be a fucking White star with a fucking overwelming power that he only could fight!!!! He has a very strong team, there is no reason for him to work hard to reach level 2 while everybody else is at level 100!!!

      That’s the hateful part. That person is expecting training to be like 10 jump and jacks… Choi Han had years to train that he’s even older than Ron… Cale doesn’t have that physique nor the time to prepare his body before actually doing the training. On and Hong don’t even fight in the frontlines because it’s obvious that they’re weak even with the training Ron made for them. Even the young wolves trained by Choi Han wasn’t shown to be fighting against strong enemies.

    Like Cale at the start of the story, I also thought he’ll be a rich salty fish but his slacker life really is too far out of reach as villains in the novel are powerful and good at strategizing as well. I like this novel coz I can read about a hero who doesn’t need to train and a novel where friends aren’t sacrificed even if they’re side character, second male lead, cannon fodder etc. Who says only diligent people with strong bodies can be heroes!? Living isn’t all about work, work and diligence. I’m tired of novels telling me one has to work hard, reminds me of my boss that keeps asking me to work overtime and work during weekends as if that’s the only way to be successful in life tsk tsk. Who needs to work all the time when I can earn money by spending my salary to buy/sell stocks as well. Using luck, skills and opportunity well are important in living too. It ain’t all about training. Planning, strategizing, gathering intel takes time and effort too.

    If I want to read about a hero who needs to train, there are chinese wuxia/xian xia martial arts cultivation novels where they can train for tens,hundreds and thousands of years LOL . Too bad Cale can’t even rest his body for a month at one place while conscious.
    Reminds me of Ravages of Time manhua, having to counter enemies’ counterplan while fighting. Also Cale is too good at saving people from one place to another. If he has enough time, just like his family/friends, I’d advse him to rest instead of training as well. I really love strategist heroes. Cale really reminds me of Sima Yi, Batman, and IronMan. Ironman only had Jarvis and Friday but Cale has 5 voices with him everywhere he goes + wind elementals. So Cool! I love Cale 3000 but I hope he doesn’t die.

    The vibes in this comment section are crazy (╹◡╹)

    Anyhow, cale-nim, you damn near made me tear up for calling choi han “choi jung soo” you bastard

    As for the vibes above, criticism is one thing, but misunderstanding the MC is another. Cale-nim’s never been a good communicator and even his intentions arent well communicated to us readers. But here:

    1. Cale Henituse’s body is already weak. Remember how his glass plate was smaller than a fly’s? Plus Count Deruth himself said that Cale couldnt handle a sword. Cale-nim’s physical foundation is weak
    2. Cale-nim values “this” body in a particular way: Kim rok soo was covered in scars and had to train all the time. Yea, its becoming a liability, but cale-nim said that “there’s no point if i end up having to suffer like that again” early on, thus the gathering of ancient powers
    3. There had yet to be a time where cale-nim had to *directly* fight until now. He is the rear support, the strategist. Theres still time for him to change his mind about training his weak body, but there hadnt been a reason to until this chapter

    We should all know by now that cale-nim only moves if he finds a good reason to _(:3 」∠)_

    Just commenting this here bcs I haven’t seen anyone doing so:

    Cuhun, so, Why does Choi Han now has Choi Jung Soo powers? It wouldn’t make sense if he did only because he now have Choi Jung Soo’s memories. So I think it has to do with Death’s God (OHHHHH DONT SAY IT)

    Like, maybe it isn’t just Choi Han at CH’s body….. HMMMM I DONT KNOW
    That’s just a theory.

    Even Cale want to train sword or something that can protect himself, he doesnt have the time. First of all, if he want to learn all of that, he need to strengthen his body first. You think strengthen body and train martial arts or sword only take few months ? That will go against his wish to be a slacker. All of us know he doesnt want to fight at all and he only find the ancient power to PROTECT himself. He only start using his power to protect the others. But because of the use of his power, he always became tired to the point he need to stay in bed. Thats why he doesnt have the time. He mostly stay in bed or rest in the first hundred chapters and then the war start. Im sorry i feel like im rambling.

    Ok so is Choi han Choi Jung soo’s uncle or Jung soo himself I’m confused now. Didn’t he say that that was his nephew? Or was that a lie? But what was the point of lying did he think it was a funny joke? That’s so cringe. But you know what regardless of how cringe your jokes are I still love you Choi han, I really do. Your cringe jokes actually warm my heart for some reason.

    Cale moved his fist forward. Kim Rok Soo was someone who would charge forward with a metal plate even when he didn’t know how to properly fall.

    ‘I will go until the end.’

    Cale was someone who knew the weight of those words and someone who kept his word.

    Not with the feeeellssss
    And when Clae thought Choi Han was Choi Jung Soo and the records came crashing… Boi if the next thing on your to do list is not dealing, at least a little bit, with your trauma imma have to ask Raon to imprison you in his castle smh

    Also Cjoi Han has a new technique thing yaaay so cool! I think it may be something he developed after seeing his nephew use it in his memories, or its something that runs in the family maybe? Maybe Choi Han just has the talent to make that ability a reality. That’s our guyy!!!

    – Human! I will take care of Dorph! Something is odd. It was hard at first, but I feel like I can use my magic like normal now! Did I get used to it or something? I truly am great and mighty!

    — It’s probably because of Raon’s attribute which is called “The Present” maybe his attribute can change according to the present situation

    ________________________

    & to the commentator above @Ombre37
    Reading comprehension, that’s what you need.
    Cale doesn’t need training because his main fighting force is his ancient power, it does’t need training to grow powerful. His dream is to become a slacker, he doesn’t like troublesome things and would rather avoid it if he can.
    l’m not sure, but I think Cale’s problem is his plate not his body, he might not be as fit and strong as Ron or Choi Han but his body is definitely above average thanks to the Vitality of the Heart. ( do correct me if I’m wrong). And training won’t be able to help his plate to become sturdy.
