Chapter 189 – Epsilon in Gorgeous Disguise

Translator: Makisima from wangmamaread

Proofreader: Nevermind

“Enemy attack…”

Doem lit the lamp in the spacious tent.

“The number of enemies is small! They attacked under the covers of darkness!”

Doem’s subordinate reported.

This place was the most important location of the Doem Faction, which was protected by the members of the Order of Diablos.

Someone attacked their camp without hesitation, which means…

“Shadow Garden….”

Doem’s expression suddenly contorted. 

He didn’t think that the Royalists Faction could attack here.

But with Shadow Garden’s information gathering capabilities, there was a chance they knew where Doem was and the scope of the Order of Diabolos activities. 

“Shit… How much information was leaked!!”

“There couldn’t be any leaks! Our countermeasures should’ve been perfect. Them targeting this place must’ve been a coincidence… “

“Shut up! When will your ‘coincidences’ end!? Don’t you dare forget that Rajta was killed! Because of those people our plans were ruined countless times!!”

“For, forgive me please!”

The subordinate said with his voice trembling.

“Stop underestimating them. Rajta was killed, so things are going to get quite troublesome now. Including this attack, we should be prepared for the worst. We should assume that Shadow Garden knows everything.”

“How could that be possible? How did they learn of our plan?”

“Having the information that should have been a complete secret – that was what the organization known as Shadow Garden was.”

Doem said as he reached out to the coffin that was in the center of the spacious tent.

It was an unusually robustly built coffin without any decoration. A thick layer of chains was wrapped up around it, and in the center of the coffin there was a small hole.

Even though it looked like a keyhole, it certainly was not one.

It was just a small hole.

“They probably know about this too. The heroes, human experiments and even the secret medicine…”

“No, it’s impossible! The hero’s body is absolutely——”

At that moment, a slight breeze passed through the tent. 

“I see, so that’s the case…”

As they heard a beautiful voice say that, the subordinate’s body was split into two bloody halves. 

“You, you are…”

Doem glared at the voice’s owner fiercely. 

“I haven’t seen you in a while, Doem. Thanks for taking care of me in the city.”

Epsilon, the beauty with long, smooth hair stood there.

“Epsilon… You survived with that kind of injury…”

“Not thanks to you. It’s been very hard to be chased by so many men, but that’s just a beauty’s fate.”

“But you seem to be much thinner. Even though you’re one of the seven shadows, it must’ve been hard for you to deal with.”

“I’m just in disguise.”


“Yes, it’s just a disguise.”


That’s probably the truth. If she just got thinner, the slimes volume wouldn’t have reduced so much. 

Was it really just a disguise or was she bluffing to conceal the limits of the seven shadow’s strength?

A subtle sense of tension permeated the air.

“Shouldn’t you tend to your wound?”

Epsilon said to Doem.

Doem’s right shoulder was cut at some point. Epsilon sent a slash at him while killing his subordinate.

“No need, it’s just a scratch.”

“I’m surprised you avoided it so quickly. But unfortunately for you, Mordred is not here, and I’m in my peak condition, so your chance to win is less than one in ten thousand.”

“I see, so… how much do you know?”

“Not much.”

The two of them continued the conversation.

Doem was doing it to buy some time, while Epsilon was fishing for information.

“I finally understand why the Order of Diabolos is so obsessed with the demon possessions.”

“Tell me, let me check the answer for you.”

“Long ago, in the distant past, three heroes including Freya defeated the demon Diabolos. After that, the Order of Diabolos somehow got her body.”

“As I thought, that’s why you attacked the Castle of Rajta…”

“The Order of Diabolos was studying Freya’s body in order to learn how to manipulate Diabolos’ cells and create a new hero. In order to do that, Order of Diabolos found three potential candidates who were believed to have strongly inherited Freya’s blood.”

“Oh, right. You probably have guessed already but the three we chose were Rose Oriana, Alexia Midgar and… Claire Kagenou. And all of them are under your protection.”

Doem’s mouth twisted as he stared at Epsilon. 

“To what extent are you willing to go to, just to hinder us! We haven’t even confirmed our thoughts and yet you are still stopping us, why! Answer me!”

In the face of Doem’s aggresive stance, Epsilon just turned her eyes into the distance.

It was as if she was staring at someone in front of her.

“All truth lies on the end of Shadow-sama’s path.”

“Shadow… That man? It’s all because of him…”

Doem recalled Shadow’s swordsmanship that he saw on the day of the Buyin Tournament. That swordsmanship that was like a superb art was deeply imprinted on Doem’s mind.

“Well, let’s end our little chat here.”

“Don’t be so anxious. Let me tell you another good news. There indeed were three candidates at the beginning, but we also managed to get a new test subject that barely passes the requirements, even though she is not comparable to the other three.”

Doem suddenly injected some red liquid into the hole in the coffin that was next to him.

Suddenly mana started to overflow from the coffin.

“Now, wake up. You must want to avenge your father’s death – Emilia.”

“… Eh?”

Then the coffin shattered.

Paps Posted on8:52 pm - Jul 5, 2019

Thanks for the chapter, so this Emilia is she the alchemist girl or anyother???

    ZeroSugar Posted on12:57 pm - Jul 6, 2019

    Emilia was that monster that was locked with Alexia at the beginning of the series, who then went rampage in the city and fought with Iris and was one shotted by Alpha.
    After she was defeated she returned to her human form and she was holding a oriental knife with carving that said something like “to Emilia, from your loving father”.
    And the father was that dude who kidnapped Sids sister Claire (also seen in the beginning of the series). After he was defeated he muttered her name in his dying breath.

“Shouldn’t you tend to your wound?”

Says Epsilon after cutting his right shoulder

“Tis but a scratch.”


Fr Posted on7:51 am - Jul 3, 2019

That coincidence will destroy ur diabolos order.

Brazio Posted on3:17 am - Jul 2, 2019

    Random Bypasser Posted on4:39 pm - Jul 3, 2019

      heavenjudgement2 Posted on12:43 pm - Jul 4, 2019

        Epic win Posted on7:41 am - Jul 7, 2019

        Get this man a beer!!

    ZeroSugar Posted on1:00 pm - Jul 6, 2019

    Well, in the novel it was described that after she returned to her human form she was holding the knife that her father gave her, witch kinda suggest that she wasnt completely cut through, or atleast that detransform healed her or something.
    In the manga she seems to be completely unharmed.

Lagmaster64 Posted on1:21 am - Jul 2, 2019

i love Emilia! hahahahahah

Drama Posted on4:33 pm - Jul 1, 2019

Thanks for chapters ..

Yaboiithanos Posted on4:14 pm - Jul 1, 2019

So can anyone confirm something for me? As far as I understand, the vampires are a derivation of aurora’s blood, right? Thats why they have similiar ability as her and order of diabolos is the one that created the hero freya by injecting aurora’s blood into her, right? And so why did they kill aurora again?

    GigadethGD Posted on9:59 pm - Jul 1, 2019

    Aurora the Witch is certainly not a vampire but simply a human being demonified. She was near-dead the whole time, as she transferred most consciousness to the finger. however, whose body got recycled to Freya’s body, i’m sure you knows. the Progenitor Vampires is just having the bloods that has nearly close to the thick demon blood of hers.

    ZeroSugar Posted on1:03 pm - Jul 6, 2019

    Aurora was powerful witch that went through the mutation and became the devil Diablos. She wasnt part of the Cult, the cult/church just formed around her and as she was dangerous they sought to stop her. And they managed to do that by damaging Aurora, cutting her arm and then used that to create the heroes and so starting the lineage who carried her blood.

Akbar Posted on1:31 pm - Jul 1, 2019

Thanks for the chapter Makisima-san!

heroeric Posted on9:40 am - Jul 1, 2019

I just checked and Emilia is the name of the daughter of Olba, who is the first villain.
She is the one who gets turned into a monster and is killed my Alpha.

The lab lady who is studying abroad and was the adopted daughter of the diablos member who killed her mother is called Sherry Barnett

    Ashton Posted on10:58 am - Jul 1, 2019

    Thanks for sharing

Dusty Posted on9:36 am - Jul 1, 2019

She’s STILL alive?!
But Aloha cut her in half!

Also, for those who forgot, Emilia was the ‘monster’ next to Alexia and she was the daughter of the first Diablo boss Cid killed.

    GigadethGD Posted on10:00 pm - Jul 1, 2019

    what ? no, only the lump of demon flesh got peeled off ! why’d she do that to a kid anyway ?

idunnolol Posted on8:52 am - Jul 1, 2019

The translations have been getting better lately.

Nhan Sieu Posted on7:42 am - Jul 1, 2019

Suddenly I remember that there was no chapter 143. I’ve never known what Delta digged out in that day. Can you translate it man?

    heroeric Posted on9:43 am - Jul 1, 2019

    Chapter 143 is chapter 142. Because the translators are numbering the chapters differently is caused an error in the numbering when the series switched to a different translator

      vavraga Posted on11:31 pm - Jul 2, 2019

      theres no 143 you could check the raws at syosetsu

DrV Posted on3:06 am - Jul 1, 2019

Imam Aji Posted on10:44 pm - Jun 30, 2019

Emillia Chan…. 😢😢😢 poor you for revive to revenge…

    Kendov Posted on1:55 am - Jul 3, 2019

    She’ll probably want revenge against the order once she learns what they did with her father. For all I remember, he thought his daughter was dead already

_Nobody:(_ Posted on10:43 pm - Jun 30, 2019


Who’s emilia again?

    Selda Posted on10:56 pm - Jun 30, 2019

    Is she not the monster in the lab when Alexia was emprissoned?

    Ricco Posted on11:02 pm - Jun 30, 2019

    Emilia is the girl that gets turned into a monster early on, she’s the one chained up with Alexia and end up killed by Alpha.

    Nhan Sieu Posted on7:22 am - Jul 1, 2019

    Emilia is already showed up in the manga dudes

      heroeric Posted on9:49 am - Jul 1, 2019

      Emilia in the manga name is translated as milia so you might not realize that they are the same person

Essays_kun Posted on10:41 pm - Jun 30, 2019

Who is Emilia ? I forgot

    Ultimate boredom Posted on10:58 pm - Jun 30, 2019

    I think Emilia was Olba’s daughter. The first villain of the series who kidnapped Claire. But I remember that Emilia was killed by Alpha later on.

    KINDAEVE Posted on11:59 pm - Jun 30, 2019

      Makisma fan in disguise Posted on1:12 am - Jul 1, 2019
