A formidable dragon known as the Demon King once ruled the whole world, that is, until he was dethroned by a young and valiant hero …
Not wishing to take the demon king’s life, the hero instead cut off one of the demon king’s two horns, the source of all his power. As the dragon lay downcast and wounded, the hero accompanied him in the days that followed as he healed. With each passing day the Demon King grew less and less terrifying and before they knew it the two, once adversaries, were becoming friends.
However, on a faithful day, the hero suffered a fatal wound. He asked his friend the dragon one last favor: to raise his child well. Hugged in his arms was his little girl.
The Demon King has never been so sure about anything else in his life. This girl would be his chance for redemption.
The Demon King kept his word. The young girl would then be raised under the wings of the Dragon King, the evil former tyrant turned father. The girl loved to listen to tales of the many adventures of her biological father of the Dragon King, even wishing that one day she would become a hero herself. The Dragon King knew that day would come.
“Yuu will absolutely become a great hero.”
“If you were to defeat me one day, so be it.” “
