After undergoing a hellish training regimen prepared by Alan, Kyril has now learned a colorless sword technique that allows him to infuse mana into his swordsmanship. With this technique, Kyril is now stronger than ever and he is finally ready to establish his kingdom.
Kyril and his group had left the Ulca guild in Thompson’s hands and were now heading towards the open land to establish their base. Part 1 of Sword Master Level 9: Guardian of the Sword is all about Kyril’s growth, and Part 2 is sure to show off Kyril’s true power!
This chapter opens with Kyril finding the place that holds the method to open his energy circuit. Alan confirms this method by saying that he has studied magic for a thousand years. Alan then asked Kyril if he remembered the blue phosphorus he told him about earlier.
Kyril said that he could never forget the way Alan burned the expensive blue phosphorus as if it were nothing. Alan laughed and said that Kyril didn’t need to worry as long as he was there. He then told Kyril that they could get more blue phosphorus from the Arcanum Fountain in the Abyss Mountains. Alan added that weapons made from green phosphorus are very effective against corrupted people because it has the power of souls.
Alan said that the dragon taught him mana and magic and ordered him to manage the Fountain of Arcanum. After managing the Arcanum fountain for decades, Alan learned that dragon magic was related to soul stones because dragons were essentially creatures of the spirit world. The water of the Arcanum Fountain can enhance a dragon’s mana and so that place is very important to them.
Kyril realized that he could also stabilize his dragon energy at the Fountain of Arcanum. Kyril also admitted that his contract with Alan was indeed beneficial but he still did not understand how Alan would benefit from all of this. Alan thought he couldn’t hide anything from Kyril, so he agreed to tell Kyril everything.
Alan said he wanted to cool down. He explains that if the frozen claw or any weapon created by the blades is placed in the water from the Arcanum Fountain then its soulstone will be enhanced in power. This way, the frozen claw will have enough spiritual power to even be able to take on Alan’s soul. Kyril wonders if Alan is trying to materialize himself through a sword.
Alan agrees with Kyril and says he also needs Kyril’s mana to do it. Kyril started smiling menacingly, making Alan a little scared, knowing that Kyril was about to do something crazy. Kyril says he will find all four weapons made by the Bladers and cool them in water from the Arcanum Fountain.
Kyril can then use those weapons to materialize other souls that benefit him. Alan was scared and asked Kyril if he intended to take down the ghost castle’s owner Lich Zarka Hotch. Alan’s fear is well-founded because Zarka is someone who has not been defeated even in the age of magic thousands of years ago. Kyril says he won’t fight Zarka now.
Kyril then asks Alan to create Mirage space so he can complete his training. Outside Kyril’s room, Aidan began to lose patience because he had been waiting for Kyril for 12 hours. Aidan suddenly arrives and orders Aidan to find a man named Thompson. Aidan immediately ran to find Thompson as if he was being controlled by Kyril.
Kyril tells Alan that he has now learned all 7 forms of the colorless energy sword. With his colorless energy sword, Kyril now knows how to combine mana with his swordsmanship so it’s time to give it a try. Kyril goes to the Ulca Association and tells Bargo that he knows about all the church’s illegal dealings.
Bargo tries to find a solution but when Kyril presents evidence to support his accusations, Bargo decides to eliminate Kyril. Sadly for Bargo, Kyril immediately kills his assistant and then slowly kills him after a few interrogations. After killing Bargo, Kyril handed over the guild to Thompson.
Thompson cried and willingly accepted Kyril’s offer, he even vowed to serve Kyril for the rest of his life. Kyril then decides to leave Azor after meeting Aidan one last time. Kyril now has money from Tatur and troops from the Gyodo mercenary legion and so all that remains for him is to find some land to establish his base. Although it may seem ridiculous for one person to found a nation, it is still possible if that person is Kyril!
