Sevens: Dalien


Just as the peddler suggested, we hitched a carriage from a city to the capital.

The road was well maintained, and the coupled carriage was pulled by a total of six horses. The ride wasn’t bad, but getting a lift all the way to the Capital cost quite a pretty penny, it seems.

A sum of five silver coins a piece.

With me and Novem together, it was a total equal to a whole gold coin.

I sat and observed the scenery as I stared out the carriage.

Perhaps she was tired, but Novem was sound asleep. She was leaning on me, and breathing peacefully.

(Has she been pushing herself?)

I may be worthless by myself, but it was because Novem was with me that I could get all the way here. Otherwise, I would have probably gotten there eventually, but some time along the way, I would have ended up on foot.

Having never camped out before, travelling alone was completely out of the question, according to my ancestors. I had the vague notion that I would be alright, but it seems they were all fed up with the naivety of my thought process.

Even the Seventh Generation, my grandfather, didn’t stick up for me on that one.

In order not to wake Novem, I kept my eyes on the outside.

As I was doing that, I heard the Second’s voice.

Today is his day to look after me, apparently.

I don’t know the criterion, but while travelling, the first and second, and occasionally the fourth would start up a conversation with me.

There was the problem of my Mana, so having two talk to me at once was tiring. For that reason, they call out to me alone.

『You’ve sure got some convenient things around these days. We didn’t have this coupling system in my day.』

In a small voice, I answered.

“Is that how it was?”

『It’s because that was almost two hundred years ago. Magic Tools, was it? We never had anything that convenient.』

Magic Tools were something built to replace gems. They were a much simpler way to bestow skills unto people. However, perhaps because gems were the stronger of the two, it was impossible for one to use multiple Magic Tools at once.

It’s always either one or two.

But there was the problem with my Mana, so right now, I can’t use a Magic Tool. The Ancestors’ Skills included, the current me is bearing quite a load.

And the majority of them are ones I can’t even use.

Or should I say… the Seventh Generation’s skill was too much for me, myself to handle, so I couldn’t use it. The Second’s was one that interacted with and affected other skills.

About the First Generation’s, because he didn’t recognize me, he didn’t want to let me use it.

The other Skills were similar. Saying my body couldn’t handle it, they refused to give permission to use them.

(I’m in a state where I can’t use any of them, aren’t I?)

“But even if they’ll supply somewhere to stay along the way, is five silver that expensive?”

Apparently, my sense of money is clearly worse than I thought. Fifth generation onward, in order to live their lives as full nobles, had abandoned the sense of money of commoners.

That was apparent when I was choosing a weapon.

Fifth onwards said the more expensive ones would last for an exponentially longer time, and had a good cost-performance-ratio as they recommended a high-priced sword.

But taking the money I had on hand into consideration, that proved impossible. While I was able to afford it, it would make the travels afterwards difficult, so the Second and Third vetoed the decision.

『I think it’s on the cheaper side. You have a safe ride to the capital, and you’ve secured lodging for only five silver, you know? If it were me, I would be delighted. Though they probably have quite a large pool of customers to reap profits from.』

From a commoner’s standpoint, five silver was a hefty sum.

But because it promised for safe travels, there are quite a few who use the system.

『You sure live in a convenient era.』

After saying that, the Second Generation remained silent. I took the Jewel in my hands, and looked into it. The blue crystal was a treasure handed down by the Walt House for generations.

Is it alright for something like that to be in my hands right now?

(I hope it doesn’t become a problem.)

As I thought that, Novem stirred a little. I stuffed the Jewel attached to a necklace back under my shirt.

But Novem didn’t wake.

“Still, for the next five days, we’ll just be travelling like this…”

Around us, horse mounted guards circled the carriage. Looking at them, the other customers seemed relieved.

However, according to my predecessors’ words, the skill level of the escorts wasn’t all that high. That back in their day, the guards were much more skillful.  A bragging contest of『My generation was amazing』 unfolded.

(But that part about them bringing up their time is a little… right…)

Like Novem, I opted to sleep.

The evening of the fifth day.

Having arrived at the destination of the coupled carriages, the imperial capital, we decided to search for an inn, as it was already dark.

It would be a pain once night fell, and more than anything, fatigue had built up in my body over those five days of travel. The unfamiliar environment was simply that hard on me.

We should rest a bit… is what the Ancestors proposed. For Novem’s sake.

“Lyle-sama, are you certain? It’s a bit of an expensive lodging this time.”

In front of our eyes, was an inn that, unlike the other ones, was equipped with baths in the private rooms.

Its outward appearance was, as befitting the capital city of the Bahnseim Kingdom, 【Centralle】, exceedingly extravagant.

The air around it was completely different from the villages and towns we passed through.

“Let’s take it easy for today, at least. It’s important to heal the pent up fatigue of a long voyage (And if I don’t, the ancestors are going to get loud, aren’t they).”

Mainly the First to the Fourth. They seem quite wary of her.

If you’re wondering just what it was Novem’s Forxuz House did for them for them to be that grateful…

The first received extensive assistance when he was reclaiming and cultivating the abandoned settlements on his new territory, the Second was imparted with their know-how on how to manage land, and they even helped him search for his bride.

When the Third generation was confused with his own elevation of status, they lent a had as well, apparently.

And after the Third Died in battle, the Fourth suddenly had status thrust at him at a young age, and because of his father’s efforts, the House obtained Baron status under him.

At that time, it was apparently the Forxuz House that supported him from the shadows.

To summarize!

(My homeland, the Walt House, would never have developed so far if the Forxuzes weren’t there… even so, as we’ve made them a vassal house, we’ve been unable to repay those debts.)

It isn’t anything directly related to Novem, but they’re sentiments I tip my hat to.

Of course, that train of thought changed heavily Fifth Generation onwards.

Since they’d associated with each other for many years, they were under the impression that the debt was already paid off. It’s just the First to Fourth had direct, personal debts, so they weren’t satisfied with that.

(And wait, after being so close, for us to not have blood relations…)

I’ll bet there were quite a few circumstances, but anyways, the deeply connected Walt and Forxuz Houses had never been connected through blood.

Normally, after so long, it wouldn’t be strange for there to be a marriage or two thrown in there.

(What are you guys even doing… my House… no, my ancestors.)

From what I’d heard in the meeting room, I feel something vital wasn’t in place somewhere.

From what I’d heard by hearsay, the First Generation was supposedly the one who cut open the path to savage land, and founded his family there. Even so, in reality, he was one who looks like he would often be mistaken for a pelt-wearing barbarian.

“Thank you for accompanying me this far. Well then, shall we go?”


We entered the inn, and found a counter by the door.

It was well maintained, and the room was lighted by a magic stone-like Magic Tool.

The clerk behind the counter cordially welcomed us.

“”Will you be staying the night?


Even their reception was polite.

I’ll be able to get some rest for the first time in a while. That’s what I thought.

『Zero points.』

As I was sleeping in a fluffy bed for the first in a long time, I was called to the meeting room.

But there was no one there but the First Generation.

He gave me a grade the moment we met, and I’m not really sure how to respond upon being awarded a zero. So…

“Is that so? … Can I go back yet?”

『Why do you have such a low sense of competition!? You’re too well behaved that it’s boring!』

But no matter what answer I return, he’s going to be angry, isn’t he?

As I thought that, I decided to hear what the First had to say.

“And so, what is it? I want to get some rest in preparation for tomorrow.”

『I know! But there was something I wanted to tell you no matter what.』

He seemed serious, but he may merely repeat the same monster accusations as before.

I gave an unpleasant face, but his eyes were earnest. And earnestly, to me… he started talking about the creation of the Kingdom.

『I was born around the time the Kingdom was fifty years old. At that time, there were still survivors from the violent domestic turmoil that resulted.』

“… Hah, is that so?”

『In the place where I lived, there were some soldier who were around when the Royal Faction and the Noble Faction began warring amongst themselves, you see. Those old men would often say it… they often asked why it was they just fought as they were told at the time.』

I recalled the Kingdom’s history that spanned three hundred years. As part of my training, I also studied history, and there, I learned how the country came to be.

Around the time, a Monarchy was acting quite corrupt, and the local nobles couldn’t bear it anymore, so they raised some revolts. What they made from it was the 【Bahnseim Kingdom】.

“Isn’t that because the flames in them had died down?”

『I think so too. But, you see, those old dogs said it was as if they were living in a dream. And at the same time, there was this high-up beauty in the Royal Faction.』

I guess there was quite a pretty woman there.

Well, the current opinion on the matter is that figures like that are mostly the product of stories, and it’s precisely because times and situations change that war happens.

It was a revolt that happened because it was inevitable, or so I was taught.

However, there was apparently a time where a single beautiful woman controlled politics as she wished.

But even if a beauty like that was there, no decent country would let their politics be led around like that.

It’s because the core of the country was already corrupt by that time.

“If it’s about that beautiful woman, I think I’ve heard about her before. But wasn’t that just one of the many excuses that started it?”

『That’s wrong. They really exist, you know. Should I call it the turning points of history? At times like that, the monsters come out. Those guys are much scarier and more malicious than some monster you’d find in the forest.』

Still with a serious expressions, he continued to speak.

『You guys may think it’s some idle gossip, but it really was a chaotic time. My grandparents even said there were way too many strange happenings in that era. They couldn’t believe it themselves. And the one who stirred it all up was… 』

“… A monster?”

『Right! A Supreme beauty who ruined the country! A general a match for an army of thousands! A Magician great enough to lift islands! Those guys all come out at the turning points of history. Your sister is a monster like that. To think a Monster would be born of my own lineage.』

(TL: If you don’t get it, this is a metaphor.)

“T-that couldn’t be.”

As I voiced my skepticism, the First spoke..

『Then you think distance their dear heir? Even if you’re rotten, you’re the man who was to become the next Head. You must have been treated befitting of that. If you don’t like something, then giving an order to change it is normal for your ilk. Also, the fact that you got the minimal treatment is your own fortune.』


『That’s right. You know you were in a situation where it wouldn’t be strange if you died, right? More so than kicking you out because they didn’t like you, it would be easier on them to kill you, and feign that it was an illness.』

Being told that was quite a shock. I truly was in an environment where my needs were minimized. Of course, it was also one where I was never recognized.

And after being told, the fact that I wasn’t killed began to sound strange for the first time. Even for Celes, who treated me as a hated figure.

『Finally starting to get it? You never thought it was strange before, right? Where was the charm that pulled the wool over your eyes? A monster great enough to twist your environment. You’re lucky to have survived. That may just be how much your parents loved you, and resisted that monster.』

A monster that even altered the environment… that was Celes, the First Generation concluded.

『Those ones have nothing like common sense, and it may just be by a whim that you were thrown away. There’s no way for me to understand a monster’s feelings. But they truly do exist.』

The First’s monsters of history.

I was slightly swallowed by his words. My experience with Celes makes it something I can’t laugh away.

“Then… is Celes the cause of it all? I wasn’t wrong?”

『No idea about that one. By what I know about you, you’re a brat oblivious to the world that causes trouble to the old man’s descendants. A true spoiled brat. And I also don’t know that girl known as Celes. I only ever began to be able to speak like this when your Skill manifested in here.』


The things I lacked a response to continued to multiply, and I could do nothing but stay silent. There, the First Generation spoke.

“Hey, you, what do you plan on doing from here on out?”

“Eh? Well… I’ll become an adventurer, right?”

『Wrong! In a time when the country might be swept up in turmoil, and you know it’s going to happen, what is your course of action, is my question! The life of that Novem-chan’s in your hands too! If you act poorly, I’ll smack you, you got that?』

Today, I learned that there were many things I hadn’t been giving thought to.

I thought it would work out one way or another, but right now, I have the existence called Novem alongside me. You could say she arbitrarily tagged along of her own accord, but abandoning her isn’t a possible option.

“I-I am…”

『… You need to think of yourself more. Just looking at you irritates me.』

Saying that, the First Generation headed off to his room. He opened the door, and slammed it behind him with all his might. Having been left in the meeting room, I thought for a while about what it was I should do.

“It’s come into sight, Lyle-sama!”

Standing up high on the loading cart of the wagon, Novem shouted as she pointed at the city of Dalien that had come into view.

Perhaps because our long voyage was finally coming to an end, Novem’s expression was bright. My mood had also become lighter.

I plan to exert myself as an adventurer in Dalien for the time being. Meaning our travels will be put on a temporary hold.

“It sure has. It doesn’t look like a bad place.”It didn’t seem overflowing with people like the Imperial Capital. And I won’t say it was noisy, but it was a lively city.

Dalien… like Zell had told me, it was a town with the energy to drive forwards its development.

I looked at the side profile of Novem’s happy face as I thought.

(Just… what is it that I should be doing…)

I had been thinking about it since yesterday, but I couldn’t find an answer whatsoever. Even if I wanted to consult someone, it seems that today’s the First Generation’s turn to look over me, so even if I call out, there’s no response.

He must be feeling quite irritated, looking at me.

“The adventurers’ guild in Dalien is is quite big, I hear. There’s an abundance in work to be found, and it’s said to be a perfect place for a novice to start out.”

“Where did you hear something like that?”

“When we were out shopping in the capital. It was where we were to stay for a while, so I was curious as to what sort of place it was.”

As Novem said that, I heard a voice from the Jewel.

『… What a good kid. She’s more than you deserve. Compared to that, you didn’t even try to collect information… che!』

I heard him click his tongue.

“… Novem, I’ve caused you quite a bit of trouble. I-I’ll also work hard from here on.”

I felt my own worthlessness, as I gave my thanks to her.

“Don’t worry about it. I’m doing this because I want to. Lyle-sama, let’s work hard together.”


There, this time, the voice came from the owner of the cart, a young peddler…


… He clicked his tongue. The First Generation as well.

    ……Sigh, for gods sake…this is not a challenge in any way…i am not going to deduce this anymore…Yoraikun is right in spoil this…its just a simple story.
    Hmmm, someone want to know the climax and end of one piece, that is a dificult story.
    I guess i am going to read this like a snack only.


    • Yoraikun says:

      Well that’s nice, because your first few guesses on it were so off-kilter that I thought something terrible had happened to you.

      For this one, it’s not the setting, but the story progression and humor that makes it interesting. I doubt you would be able to surmise most of what comes after, even if you’ve probably guessed the motives.

        Hey, even in the time of Bakahou i was experimenting at first (gods saves bakajou) i deduce i do not see the future…but to be honest it was because i was expecting to much of the story, thats why for you it seems like bad deductions at first…the anscestors thing was so obvious that i went to another way…but technically they are spirits so…
        Nop, i am not going to deduce anymore…well, if you want i can try…but to be honest is not of my taste, just tell me if you want me to continue…and you can spoil after that and we can exchange notes and perspectives.
        Either way i am seriously saying i know the walkthrough of One Piece, thats really of my taste and i think everyone knows its way more difficult to deduce. Come on someone take the challenge.

          Let’s start with a simple one, then. Who is Novem? This may actually be one of the greatest mysteries of the story.

        • Countrymage says:

          The ancestors said that they aren’t spirits, though. They are the residual memories attached to the skills collected in the jewel, only able to communicate with each other due to Lyle’s skill.


      • Leguron says:

        So I think Novem is the monster. The first generation mistook Celes as the monster. If Celes was the monster she would have manipulated her parents into killing her brother. Novem manipulated MCs family so that he was thrown out and she could have him all for herself and force the MC to only depend on her. I also think that Novem is a yandere.

        My theory on One Piece is that the in the lost era a powerful kingdom tried to create Sanjis All Blue.Gol D Roger found out about these plans.
        Professor Clover told us about the kingdom that it ruled about the ocean but it had a strong rival that overthrew the kingdom and stopped it from creating the All Blue.
        This rival founded the world government and destroyed all of the information about the old kingdom.
        The biggest theme in One Piece is that there are three type of things that can’t be stopped:
        1. The vision of a man
        2.The flow of time
        3.The inherited will

        There are many examples in the manga where a man had a vision which he couldn’t accomplish but through the flow of time someone inherited the will and tried to accomplish it or even accomplished it.

        Gol D. Roger inherited the will to create the All Blue but he was very sick so he started the golden age of piracy for someone else to accomplish it.

        The kingdom wanted to create a prosperous world in connecting all the oceans into one big ocean. They had to destroy the Red Line and the Grand Line. The name of the Project is one piece because all the oceans become one piece.

        Other kingdoms were against it so the kingdoms had to fight against 20 other kingdoms and lost the war.
        Before loosing the war they hid the weapons necessary to make the dream come true and wrote on the porneglyphs how to use them. This is the reason for the world government banning the translation of the porneglyph. They even destroyed Robins Island for it.

        The one who inherited the will is Ruffy. Look at his straw hat and the D in his name.

        To accomplish the All Blue two places have to be destroyed. Rivers Mountain and MaryJoa/Home of the fish men
        Through the destruction there will be no more strange weather occurences and the magnetic field will become normal to make it possible to travel with a normal compass.

        A big problem are the sea monsters that can freely roam now. That is the part where they use the weapon called Poseidon.
        With this weapon you can control the Sea kings which will take care of all the monsters.

        Another fact that supports my theory is that it fulfills many dreams of the straw hat crew.

        Luffy: After finding the One Piece he is the king of the pirates
        Sanji: He found the All Blue
        Nami: She can create her world map more easily since she can sail the world more safely and freely.
        Franky: His ship the sunny can sail around the whole world
        Robin: Found out the truth about the lost era and accomplished the dream of the people from her Island.
        Brook: He can now meet Laboon.

        The fortune teller mermaid in the fishmen island arc saw into the future and saw Ruffy destroying their home and she was never wrong about any prediction.

        Another theory: Joy Boy is the king of the lost kingdom that promised the fish men that when they aid him in his quest they can live on the surface. Therefore he build Noah’s ark aka Ship of Promise.
        Since Joy Boy lost the war he wrote on the porneglyph an apology and promised them that there will be someone that inherits his will and makes him dream come true.

        After the destruction of Mary Joa the world government will be doomed.

    If these are it is in a sense similare with the novel Dragon Bloodline in which in the end of the century or millenium appear op characters (among which reincarnated persons).

          And it doesn’t help that his ancestors, the representation of all that was JUST recently deprived to him and what he couldn’t become, keep getting on his case over the most minor of things, never missing a chance of putting him down instead of encouraging him to become stronger/wiser.


    • Naeko says:

      Aww, the MC can’t be that worthless? I mean, he has his priorities right. He remembered that it would be beneath his status to wield a machete, so he didn’t take such a weapon from his home. It’s better to be unarmed than to wield a weapon beneath you when fighting monsters or brigands. And having baths with lots of hot water is a priority in life. So it was good of him to spend the money at the fancy inn with the real bath facility and nice fluffy beds instead of saving money for a weapon.

      At least the author is trying to keep the lack of money low key by not bringing up food and other infrastructure expenditures the MC would have made up to this point. So by not mentioning some of the expenses, it’s like the MC is able to keep what money he has when he presumably whips out the moneybag to buy a weapon and other adventuring gear.

        Currently reading this for the first time. The question bothering me the most about Novem is how she knew when and where to find Lyle as he left. She wasn’t out of breath, and she wasn’t relieved when she saw him. She definitely knew where to find him in advance.
        So, possibilities:
        1. She knows the future, meaning she has time-traveled or has prediction abilities.
        2. She has a sensing skill or magic item that lets her know the location of Lyle.
        3. She has a powerful information network at her disposal able to keep track of Lyle’s movements.
        4. She was personally stalking him the whole time, and was always close by.

        Also, I find her devotion strange. Lyle is still just a selfish brat, and there’s no way any sane girl would fall so madly in love with the current him. Why is she so devoted? Maybe she’s experienced future events with Lyle, or uh… I got nothing. I don’t think it’s an act though.


  13. SamS347 says:

    Well from my POV, they just really seems like criticizing dead geezers, criticizing this and that, saying he’s wimpy and all.
    This is great, but not nearly enough to be any kind of useful advice to Lyle, again you said it has a slow start.
    This is thrilling me up, especially for the female monster thing, there’s some mysteries to uncover, I like this !


    • diegodeveze says:

      I know! It’s frustrating to see the old farts put Lyle down over everything instead of egging him on to better himself through positive reinforcement. Makes you wonder why they were even house heads.

    maybe novem is actualy something like a gardian spirit conected to the mc’s skill,or perhaps she’s a direct desendant of the monarchy before the new kingdom was founded?and maybe this will end with the country in the middle of a civil war seven years forward .with two factions fighting for power between the mc sister who some how is controlling the government and the mc,who is trying to put novem on the throne……..just throwing some wild predictions out there.

    …This MC is absolutely horrible…
    Someone who was raised to be the next heir didn’t learn to gather informations, plan ahead or be carefull with expenses??
    Did his education revolve only around fighting, basic letters and numbers, history and etiquette? No gestion or management??


    • Ninza says:

      ….you can reread from beginning bro…his education stop at 10 because of his sister, what kind of person can really learn management and planning at <10 year olds <.<…. ? (unless that person is reincarnation …)

    I really dont want her to leave him, I feel like all of this is foreshadowing for her leaving him after he does something stupid :(


  25. Seinvolf says:

    Thank u always for ur great work…


  26. The writer is seriously trying to make me hate the MC….there is nothing wrong with a weak MC slowly becoming stronger (within the boundary of humans). But this dude is seriously annoying….probably because he is a noble brat that got kicked out of his family….his “monster” of a sister is more preferable lol.

    I really really really wanna punch Lyle-wimp-san right now.

    He’s the exact opposite of an anti-hero protagonist.

    Didn’t read the chapter, only the start(the part he is saying he’s worthless)
    YES. You are u_u you make her wash your tooths, brush your hair, you complain about everything, so useless when there’s an chance to help someone and can’t even let the ancestors chat in the gem. And is fucking spoiled. Every time “I want a bath” keep it to yourself, for fucks sake, she’s doing everything and still have to listen shit like this. Being so stupid like this makes me wonder if he really tried hard train and study. His attitude is so self indugent, I can imagine that type of scene which he just did a little and thought to himself “I have made enough for today” -_-

    Just a thing, Yoraikun. Don’t know if you’d ever read this: I mean no offense and I’m actually super grateful for your work, but I have an issue, but I’m no expert, so take it with a grain of salt.

    There are some parts where the translation souunds slightly awkward or dissonant, like it’s not completely correct. A fe paragraphs in this chapter are like that, but the most iffy is this one:

    『Then you think I’d deceive my cute son? Even if you’re rotten, you’re the man who was to become the next Head. You must have been treated befitting of that. If you don’t like something, then giving an order to change it is normal for your ilk. Also, the fact that you got the minimal treatment is your own fortune.』

    Here, it feels like First is actually talking more in general and in reference to Celes, rather than Lyle, like “Even if he’s rotten, it’s the man who’s going to become the next head (general statement, not referencing an actual head prospect). He should be treated befitting of that. If they don’t like something…” or something along those lines.

    Like I said, I’m no expert, but that line had me scratching my head for a couple of minutes, and from what little I understand of Japanese semantics, it sounda slightly off.

    Again, this has happened a few times and feels like you’re changing the connotation of some sentences, which is way worse than simple orthographical or grammatical mistakes.

    Still like your work from 3 years ago, though. There’s not much to complain abput overall.


    • Yoraikun says:

      Let me check, give me a second


    • Yoraikun says:

      Okay, I TLC’d it. You’re right, the line is wrong. The translation assumes too much. What it should say is, “Then you think they’d distance their dear son?” Referring to the Walt House instead of himself. He’s saying they simply neglected him rather than drove him out.

      I don’t know what I was thinking when I read that one.


      • diegodeveze says:

        Thank you as well as for your work. This is a highly praised series and I think you did a good job (so far, at least, but I think it’ll only get better anyway). Like I said, I’m no expert and I don’t even speak Japanese. I merely understand it somewhat from over a decade of watching anime/reading manga/etc. and my somewhat decent language skills… hell, English isn’t even my native language, but here I am, so it’s nice to see you took me seriously, especially considering it’s been a long time since you wrote this.


      • diegodeveze says:

        Is it alright if I do this whenever I feel something’s off? I’m no editor, but at least I can keep a check on the small things.


So, what's on your mind?
