Trash of the Count’s Family – Chapter 427 – Trap (1)

“…What do I?”

Clopeh’s voice was slightly shaking.

“What do I need to do?”

The Wyvern Knights Brigade.

That name was one that shook his heart every time he heard it.
The Wyvern Knights Brigade of the Northern legends was the greatest force ever. If he could control that legend once again, the North, well, at least the Paerun Kingdom, would develop with him at the center.


Clopeh could see the corners of Cale’s lips rising. Cale lowered his head a bit more and stealthily whispered in Clopeh’s ears.

“It’ll be temporary, but I’ll make it so that your arms and legs work properly as well. Of course, the restrictions will remain the same.”

Boom. Boom.

Clopeh’s heart was beating wildly.


He started to think.
He was thinking that this person in front of him knew how to make him do whatever he wanted to do.

He didn’t even pay attention to the fact that the restrictions would stay the same.
The restriction Cale was talking about was exploding to death if he betrayed Cale. As long as he doesn’t betray him…

He would have the chance to recreate the legend once again.

“You must have been bored sitting back and only watching this whole time, right?”

He had been bored.
How could he not be bored?

He was someone who had not missed a single day of training to become a legend ever since he confirmed his natural talent with the sword.
Even if he chose this current path for survival, it did not mean that he had adjusted to his life that had changed drastically in a single moment.

Clopeh could see Cale pointing at two people.
They were the necromancer and the youngest sword master. Cale pointed to the two of them as he continued to speak.

“It is those two people, Sir Clopeh.”

The revival of the Guardian Knight was right in front of his nose.

“The two of us only make deals with each other.”

That was why the Guardian Knight happily smiled back at the person who was smiling like the devil.

“I will accept it no matter what the deal is.”

A noble smile instead of a greedy smile was visible in front of Cale.
Cale thoroughly observed Clopeh who instantly started to act like the Guardian Knight again before he started to speak.
His voice was gentle.

“Spread rumors that there is someone named the White Star who has invaded and is trying to invade the Empire, the North, and the entire Western continent.”

The Bear King had said the following.

‘There are people who are chosen and there are people who are not.
The people who are not chosen would face disasters and barren lands.’

It was some not even funny nonsense.

‘Who says I’ll let them do that?’

“Spread the rumors that the White Star is a disaster.”

He could create the opposite situation than what had happened during ancient times.
Cale moved his gaze away from Clopeh and toward Cage and Taylor. He looked at Witira as well.
They realized that he was saying that to all of them and not just Clopeh.

“Also, say that there are people who are standing up and fighting against the White Star.”

Cale thought about Mercenary King Bud Illis.
Cale had contacted the bastard who had temporarily returned to the Eastern continent for a favor.

‘Spread the rumors!’

A different picture than what happened during ancient times would be created if the rumors were spread.
Unlike the ancient White Star, this White Star would not have the qualifications to choose anyone or any land.

“No matter how strong the White Star, the Bear King, and the Lion King are…”

No matter how strong they were individually…

“They can’t defeat rumors.”

The White Star who wanted to become nature, to become a god.
Unlike during ancient times, there would be almost nobody who followed him this time.

Cale could see Clopeh look at him and start to open his mouth.

“Cale-nim, our Wyvern Knights Brigade will be the ones to fight against that disaster this time I presume.”
“Yes. Doesn’t that sound great?”
“It sounds wonderful.”

Cale heard Raon’s voice in his mind at that moment.

– Human, Clopeh’s eyes look even crazier than normal!

‘Of course.’

He earned a chance that may never come around again and he would look cool fighting against the White Star, someone who has done all sorts of terrible deeds until now.
How would he able to handle it without going even crazier?

– … Human, won’t the crazier Clopeh say something like, ‘I’m a legend!’ as he fights?

He was someone who would totally do something like that.
The corners of Cale’s lips were twitching in joy.

‘White Star, you are a crazy bastard too, but enjoy fighting against such an oddly crazy bastard.’

Cale was starting to get excited that a very interesting picture was about to be created.


“We will end our strategy meeting here.”

Everybody got up from their seats at Cale’s comment.
None of them had time to linger and chat because they each had a lot to do.

“Young master Cale.”
“Young master-nim! Let’s go together!”

Taylor and Cage approached Cale while the Whales and Clopeh bid farewell and quickly left the room.

“Young master Cale, I’m relieved to see that you woke up safely.”

Taylor smiled and gave the late greeting and Cale responded with a smile. He then calmly asked Cage a question.

“Did you do what I asked for, Miss Cage?”
“Excuse me?”

Cage looked confused as she looked into Cale’s serious eyes.
He continued in a serious tone.

“I’m talking about cursing at the God of Death.”
“Did you forget?”
“…Yes, things were too hectic since we got to the Empire.”

Cale scratched her head as she asked back.

“Should I do it now?”

Her voice sounded mischievous. However, she had no idea.

“Yes, please do it every single day. I sincerely ask you to do that.”
“I hope you can do the same for me as well.”
“Me too! Good little Cage! Tell him I’m going to smack him in the back!”

Cale, Choi Han, and Raon all said similar things with serious expressions on their faces. Anybody would be able to tell that they were being serious.
Cage soon responded with a serious expression of her own.

“He seems to have pulled some stupid shit again. I understand. I will cuss at him every night in prayer. Look forward to it.”

Cale smiled back at Cage with sincere gratitude.
It was at that moment.


He could hear the voice of a Wind Elemental as he had picked up the top’s whip again.
It was a familiar Wind Elemental.
It was the one among the three that always followed him that shouted, ‘destruction, chaos, despair!’ all the time.

‘Do you remember what I said last time?’

‘What he said last time?’

Cale recalled the last thing this punk who always shouted for destruction told him.

‘It is impossible for anyone unless they hear the Wind Elementals like you. I have something to say. For destruction!’

This Wind Elemental had said he had something to say to Cale. Furthermore, it was something for destruction.

“… Young master-nim?”

Cale motioned for Cage to pause before temporarily walking away from the group to a corner.
He then quietly started to speak once he got to the corner.

“What is it you wish to say?”
‘The World Tree is looking for you.’


Cale recalled an existence that he had forgotten about.
The existence that had been alive for the longest time in this world. He had many questions to ask the World Tree. He had not been able to visit for a while, but it looked like he needed to make some time to pay it a visit.

The Wind Elemental said something else as Cale thought about where he could fit the trip in.

‘Darkness is fire.’

What is he saying now?’

‘You showed it to us. You showed us the fire that could destroy darkness.’

‘Huh? Is he talking about the Fire of Destruction cheapskate?’

‘I know the identity of Dorph’s Elemental. I think you have a pretty good idea as well.’

Dorph, the Lion King.
He and the Bear King were said to control the White Star’s darkness and light.


Then that meant, Dorph was…

“An Elementalist of Darkness?”


‘We had thought Dorph was an Elementalist at the time. However, we did not see an Elemental.’

That had been the case.
The Wind Elementals had said that the Lion King was an Elementalist, however, they had not found an Elemental.

‘We were wrong.’

‘The Wind Elementals made a mistake?’

Cale subconsciously started to speak.

“You mean Dorph isn’t an Elementalist?”

His voice was loud enough that Mary, Choi Han, and Raon all jerked their heads toward him. Cale didn’t have time to pay attention to their gazes.

‘That bastard ate an Elemental.’

‘Huh? What did he just say?’

‘He ate a Darkness Elemental. He then received the Elemental’s powers.’

‘Is something like that even possible?’

‘That is why the World Tree wishes to speak to you.’


Cale was at a loss for words.

‘Eat an Elemental? How?’

‘We were unable to see an Elemental because the Darkness Elemental has been absorbed into that bastard’s body.’

The Wind Elemental continued to speak to Cale who could only sigh.

‘There is a baby Elemental I protected for a year in the past.’

‘What is he talking about now?’

Cale started to frown after being unable to understand the flow of this Wind Elemental’s statements. The Wind Elemental still continued to say what he wanted to say.

‘It is a baby Fire Elemental specialized in destruction. It can destroy darkness as well. It says it wants to help you.’


Cale’s eyes sparkled at this new information.

‘There’s a Fire Elemental that has similar powers as the cheapskate?’

Elementals determine their paths once they are born as they choose their disposition, with their appearance changing based on their disposition and creating their own unique character.

Normal Fire Elementals would find it difficult to fight against darkness like the cheapskate. This was the case for the few Fire Elementals that some of the Dark Elf warriors possessed.

But there was a Fire Elemental capable of destroying darkness?

That meant that Cale would have more strategies he could use in battle.

‘However, that baby Elemental needs an Elementalist to help it.’

‘Ah, right.’

Cale subconsciously nodded his head.
An Elemental needed an Elementalist, Elf, or Dark Elf to use its strength properly. A contract needed to be completed in order to speak to an Elemental.
Someone like Cale who could speak to all Wind Elementals was a special case.

“…Do you want me to introduce an Elf or Dark Elf that Fire Elemental might be interested in contracting?”
‘No need.’

The Wind Elemental instantly rejected the offer.

‘That baby Fire Elemental has a human he wants to contract. It is a human who has the potential to become an Elementalist.’

‘Oh! There’s such a person?’

Elementalists were the rarest of professions.

‘I brought the baby Fire Elemental with me. Can I tell you what it is saying since you can’t hear the voices of Fire Elementals?’
“Of course.”

Cale happily nodded his head.
It was a chance where he might be able to gain another useful ally.

‘It is talking.’

The Wind Elemental started to repeat the baby Fire Elemental’s words.

‘Fiery thunderbolt, sea of fire, admiration.’


‘Proficiency in sea of fire completed. Create a sea of fire for darkness and chaos. I am a great and mighty Fire capable of destruction. Respect Raon Miru, extremely respect the Fire of Destruction, my role model.’

Cale subconsciously started to speak.

“…What the hell? You brought a weird-”

‘It brought a weird one with it?’

He heard a satisfied voice as he started to frown.

‘A great Elemental like me, agree with chaos, despair, destruction.’

It was the Wind Elemental.

‘It brought something similar to it!’

Cale was starting to get a headache because of this Wind Elemental that brought a baby Fire Elemental that was shouting for destruction, chaos, and despair just like it.
The Wind Elemental didn’t care and continued to repeat the baby Fire Elemental’s words.

‘We met before. I walked you out. The red furball. That is me.’

Cale recalled when he went to visit the World Tree in the past.
He had visited an inn at that time. It was a small inn run by a grandma and her grandson.
Cale recalled the grandson’s words when he stopped there for meal and drinks on their way out.

“Excuse me, guest-nim.”

Sully, the innkeeper’s grandson, had been looking not at Cale but the empty air around him.

‘I’m sorry, I’m not sure if something is wrong with my eyes. Ah, this is really weird.’

That innocent young man had mumbled for a bit before pointing to a spot in the air.

‘There seems to be a small and round red ball that looks like a ball of red fur? Am, am I hallucinating? Ah, what is wrong with me?’

That red furball was the baby Fire Elemental that had said that it respected Cale and wanted to walk him out when Cale was leaving the Elf Village where the World Tree resided.
Adite, the Elf priestess who served the World Tree, had said the following.

‘If it is okay with you, one of our, mm, this baby fire Elemental-nim that was born less than a year ago would like to escort you to the entrance of the village outside the lake. Would that be okay?’

She had also explained why the Fire Elemental wanted to do that.

‘The Elemental-nim said that it respects Cale-nim and really wants to escort you to the point that it whine-, no, sincerely asked.’
‘…It respects me?’
‘Yes sir. It said that it had never seen such a destructive and crazy fire before! It wants to be like it!’

The thing that the one-year-old Elemental had said was that it wanted to be like the crazy Fire of Destruction.
The Fire Elemental that had chosen its path had grown in that direction.


Cale could not help but be shocked.
The Wind Elemental didn’t care and continued to repeat the Fire Elemental’s words.

‘The human I want to contract with keeps ignoring me. Treats me like a furball. I am a great and mighty fire! Help me contract with him. I want to create seas of fire everywhere! Chaos, despair, destruction of darkness! We must destroy it at all costs!’

Cale oddly started to feel iffy.
He chose to step back for now.

“Let’s save the rest of this for later when I go see the World Tree.”

The Wind Elemental immediately shared the Fire Elemental’s response.

‘The World Tree-nim said I have a high chance of burning the lake and to return when I became an adult. I cannot go. I have a house I stay in. It is the contractor’s house. The contractor keeps having nightmares.’

Cale let out a sigh.

“What’s wrong?”

The Wind Elemental started to speak as Cage approached Cale with concern.

‘By the way, I saw how you used your wind together with the fire. Our baby Fire Elemental and I decided to combine our powers. We will create a fiery whirlwind! A great and mighty fiery whirlwind!’

Cale hesitated for a moment before looking toward Cage and the others and starting to speak.

“It looks like something good has happened.”

It seemed like a good thing, so why did he feel so iffy?
Cale sighed while looking at the solemn seas of the North.
The others looked toward him with odd expressions, but Cale weakly continued to speak.

“Let’s go take care of things.”

There was a lot they needed to do.


Hair as red as blood was shaking in the wind.

“It looks like summer is slowly leaving us.”

The northern winds were brushing past the person’s cheeks.
The person who was staring at the cold ocean with a glacier visible in the far distance started to speak.

“What is it?”

A gentle voice reached him at that moment.

“Cale Barrow, what are you thinking about?”

The red-haired man started to frown as he turned around.
A fatigued but handsome face and cold eyes looked toward the person who came to see him.


All Dragon Slayers dropped their own last names and took the last name of Barrow when they became Dragon Slayers. Their first name was the only thing tying the Dragon Slayers to their lives prior to taking on the role.

The red-haired man covered his face with a white mask in his hand.
He started to speak again once his handsome face was covered.

“…Sayeru, you will die the moment you say that damn old name one more time.”

The White Star had a cold smile on his face.
He didn’t need a name he had for a short duration during his 1,000 years of life.

      The White Star being the original Cale or his twin doesn’t make any sense. What if, just what if the original Cale is the current White Star’s doppelganger that’s why they have many similarities.

  1. ThatYoungNobleLady

    Haaaaaaaaaaa now he also has the same name as Cale, it won’t be impossible now to have the same face as Kim Rok Soo since he and Rok Soo seems to be really connected now. Of course, I don’t have any proof that he looks like the former Kim Rok Soo but the God of Death possibly do that since he’s a sly bastard. But I just got the feeling that other than the name, he probably has something similar to Cale not just their name.

  2. Reader

    I have a theory. Cale is his name because he might be the original cale henituse. What if the original cale was really a dragon slayer? What if his mother was from one of the dragon slayer families? Could that be why?

      1. Suzu

        Unless cale has a twin because he has just the same apparence of cale nothing more Wich means- but where’s the twin if it’s the original cale ,the part of information that we need right now is why cale acted like trash it’s the only one left about the original cale wait wait what if the body that cale has was not the original cale’s body but the twin and the twin is now living happily the white star then is the one that was supposed to be cale?!

        1. Suzu

          Ah wait it can be it it can but then that doesn’t mean his mother is a dragon slayer he just took the body as he reincarnated but right now Wich body is it that he is using

          1. Rat_Queen

            He could be be the original Cale or a twin because he is reborn in a new body each era so it could be possible.

  3. Watashi kininarimasu

    Whaaaaaaaaattttt? No Cale please. Theres only one Cale we all know and love and thats super enough.

    Noh- noh.

    1. AnnieMehy

      I think that White Star reincarnated this time with the same bloodline as”Cale”. Could be a twin and they got separated? I really think that the original Cale was from the family of Dragon Slayer that survived from the curse (her mother’s side). I mean the half dragon and Erehuben thought so at first so maybe there really is something there. But I think that the original Cale is in Kim Rok Soo’s body. Remember if he, the white star, is “Cale Henituse” then getting attach will lead to the death of those people but Cale is the same as Kim Rok Soo who acts like trash but cares for his family.

  4. Athena

    NANI??! the White Star’s name is also Cale???! Not to mention he also has the same red hair and red-brown eyes! What in the world is going on?

  5. KinoQi

    waititititiititit whattttt im . confusion
    his name is also cale??? I feel like there is something more to this than just the coincidences and similarities between WS and KRS hMmMmmM

  6. Calefore4


    1. stressed gargoyle

      Team Leader said the original Cale is happy already. The White Star doesn’t look happy to me. Having anyone he loves die and not being able to taste soggy tear-soaked apple pies just sounds terrible.

  7. Suzu

    It can’t be him since he lived 1000 years and the author mentioned that beacrox only saw cry when he was a kid Unless cale has a twin because he has just the same apparence of cale nothing more Wich means- but where’s the twin if it’s the original cale ,the part of information that we need right now is why cale acted like trash it’s the only one left about the original cale wait wait what if the body that cale has was not the original cale’s body but the twin and the twin is now living happily the white star then is the one that was supposed to be cale?! No it still doesn’t explain anything

    1. Suzu

      Ah wait it can be it it can but then that doesn’t mean his mother is a dragon slayer he just took the body as he reincarnated but right now Wich body is it that he is using

  8. bon freecss

    Alright everyone lets also cuss at death god every night, he deserve it!!

    yeet death god!
    (╯°□°)╯︵(\ .o.)\

  9. A Certain Novel Gourmand

    I would lean to the possibility that white Star’s name was Cale something which became Cale Barrow when he became a Dragon Slayer.

    He is not the original Cale. OG Cale is supposed to be living happily. OG Cale having a twin is a slim chance. Coincidence maybe?

    Unless author has a twisted definition of happy and makes OG Cale reincarnate to the Past and tada, white star copycat appears and boom

  10. ✨Bottom Hunter✨

    Omg, guysss i think you got it wrong😂 maybe the white star copy the name of the ancient white star(who knows???, but i know that he is a copycat) It’s imposible that the original Cale is in the book, they said that the original Cale is Happy(Plsss, be true, i wish my theory is right🙏) but the theory about the white star and Kim Rok Soo have the same face is possible knowing the God of Death.

  11. Elysia015

    Guys, IF OG Cale have twin, then shouldn’t Ron knew it the moment they met? Are you guys forgot about this assasin buttler who have been with Cale since he is a baby? I’m more inclined to Cale is his real name 1000 years ago. He still used that name cause that is his identity, although he seems to want to throw it because he want to become the White Star now. But Idk either, lets just wait for Author-nim to drop another bomb for us

  12. rintootie

    ok since everyone is preoccupied by that bomb on the last bit, imma just appreciate the elementals bec man 🤣🤣

  13. Hiraite Neko

    Why do i feel sooooo repulsive knowing they have the same name!!!? 😣

    I wonder if his name from the beginning 1000 yrs ago was already Cale and he just kept adopting it, or he became Cale on this current life…? Coz ya see why is he still a Barrow when he destroyed his household~ the nerves of this guy~

    (ノ_<。)💧 i'm pretty convinced this White Star isnt the original Cale Henituse (unlike the assumptions up there) coz how in the world did Lee Soo Hyuk knew that original Cale is currently living a happy life~ and its not like ⭐ just appeared 2 yrs ago when KRS took over, right..? 🍑

  14. Sa

    _so I think the original cale had a secret (?)
    _in the end who wrote the birth of hero that KRS read before?? Probably the god of death?
    _how did the White star acquired the sky power?
    _is “Cale Barrow” actually the ancestors
    of the current cale henituse? Maybe his mother side??

    Anyway I like the baby fire and the wind elemental combination lol

  15. chickie434

    I don’t think he’s the original Cale, but since he’s a reincarnation, what if he’s Cale’s uncle or something? His memories are 1000 years old, but not his body, so it would make sense if something like that happened, especially if the families he’s born into die if he gets close to them.

    1. chickie434

      No, better idea. He’s born into different families throughout his life, but someone from his original family left and therefore didn’t die, and their descendant was Cale Henituse. So the name is reused and stuck, and maybe he was born back into CH’s/his original family, hence why they look alike? OMG, my head hurts now.

  16. Nani

    At this point, since Author likes to drop bombs so much, I’m not surprised she just dropped this one just because, with no apparent relation to Cale (KRS) at all. LoL.

  17. Rai Eclair

    Whaaat? White Star’s name is also Cale?! OwO What the hell?

    Also.. i really like the crazy wind elemental, now they are two. The baby fire elemental is crazy too haha!
    Chaos, Despair, Destruction!

  18. thefarshore

    [[‘Proficiency in sea of fire completed. Create a sea of fire for darkness and chaos. I am a great and mighty Fire capable of destruction. Respect Raon Miru, extremely respect the Fire of Destruction, my role model.’

    Cale subconsciously started to speak.

    “…What the hell? You brought a weird-”

    ‘It brought a weird one with it?’]]

    Cale, my dearest, the heart of my heart, you knew the baby fire elemental is capable of overpowering darkness because it follows the path of destruction… so why would you think that any creature that passionately pursues despair, chaos or destruction would NOT be “weird”…??? lmfao 😂

  19. raonieven

    \\ “…Sayeru, you will die the moment you say that damn old name one more time.”

    The White Star had a cold smile on his face.
    He didn’t need a name he had for a short duration during his 1,000 years of life. //

    … uhmm yea u better stick to ‘white star’ or think of another name cause there’s no way I will call you Cale too 🙃 what r u a doppelganger (but real trash version lol)
    —but maybe Cale Barrow’s old last name was henituse too BWHAHAHAHSHSHAHAHA lol jk
    Cale ily you’re the only Cale for me 🥺😘🤣

    Thank you for the chappp!! 🤗🫶

  20. Fruit Chinpo Samurai

    It would be weird for the White Star to be the OG Cale considering Kim Rok Soo’s original leader said he was happy.

  21. Deyno

    Wait, since white star(cale barrow) always reborn whenever his old body dies, what if cale(mc)’s mother dies because of white star? What if they were really twin T^T, remember? White star is cursed

  22. snowing-stars

    Same hair, very similar eyes, probably same face and same name

    The dots are there alright, I’m just not connecting them
    Like maybe OG cale was meant to be the white star reincarnation but something happened and now we have two Cales running around, but like, the body that KRS has now had a small plate, there’s no way that he was meant to be the white star

    I’m so confused lmao
