Dragoon 167: Epilogue

 

 

Several hundred years passed from the time Rudel was in service.

The Kingdom of Courtois left only its name as kings and nobles faded out, the curtain quietly closing on an era.

The forms of the dragoons who once served the country now gone, the view of airships crossing the sky had become standard. With the skies above no longer a land beyond reach, mankind eventually stopped keeping their dragons. The development of technology soon gave rise to propeller planes.

Knight brigades were abolished. Uniform armies became standard, and the know-how to utilize a dragon was lost to time. The dragoons were quick to go. With their high upkeep and the capricious temperament of their mounts, they had become more than they were worth.

Airships, airplanes… once those were in hand, dragons had become unnecessary.

Yet the supreme rulers of the sky still remained, as they had always been, the beasts of legend.

 

 

It was only in the past few decades that the vast lands of the dragons’ dwellings became a land of dispute among the humans

In a sacred place with a lake, Sakuya watched the small dragons similar to her in appearance playing around her.

Her wings had naturally increased to six, and her large body had grown a size larger. Both the splendid gemstone in her head and her horns had grown, the young spirit she had held in her days with Rudel nowhere to be found.

Sakuya lifted up her head to look at the sky.

She let out a short and loud roar. With that alone, the Dragons’ dwellings gradually grew boisterous as dragons took to the air one after the next.

Sakuya too spread her wings to rise up and face her rude uninvited guests from the country once called the Gaia Empire.

From over thirty airships, the fighter planes took off in orderly succession.

A vast, fertile plot of land, what’s more, the Dragons’ Dwellings were abundant in natural resources. To humans, dragons were no longer comrades in arms, they had already gotten to recognize them as enemies.

Sakuya looked upon the scene and muttered.

‘Have they forgotten what became of the last Courtois Army that tried to invade?’

Wind dragons zoomed between the fighter planes, luring them into a dogfight. One by one, the crafts were shot down to the ground.

The red dragons breathed their fiery breath, sinking the airships behind them. Protruding cannons from their hulls, the airships commenced a bombardment on Sakuya.

The cannon shells failed to scratch her.

Sakuya opened her large mouth, and as her breath was released, it dispersed through the air. The shots assailed airship and airplane alike, bringing them to the ground.

While there were enemies who tried to flee, they were quickly circumvented and crushed.

Similar to Sakuya, a white dragon with four wings approached her.

‘Mama, it’s over. All that’s left is the clean-up.’

Sakuya kept her eyes on the falling crafts as, after a large flap propelling herself up a distance, she took off somewhere.

Perhaps curious, Sakuya’s child tagged along.

 

 

It was where the capital of the Courtois Kingdom once stood.

Now ruined and abandoned, not a trace of its former glory remained.

Having brought her feet there, Sakuya mimicked a human form as she descended, her child copying her and changing shape as well.

The form Sakuya took on was as if the once-goddess Sakuya had grown into an adult. Her child boasted the same blue eyes and blond hair- cut short. A blue gemstone embedded in his forehead.

But unlike Sakuya, his hands remained disproportionately large, and it seemed he wasn’t yet completely accustomed to taking human form.

“Mama, why did you come here? There haven’t been any humans here for quite some time.”

“You’re right,” Sakuya muttered, as she walked through the royal capital buried in rubble and sand.

The reason the capital fell. It all lay in the limits of the Kingdom. The kingdom had welcomed in a golden age under Fina Courtois- the great leader who was said to have rejuvenated the dynasty- alongside her prime minister Luecke Halbades.

But from then on came a slow, gradual decline.

They had their share of wise rulers, but in the end, they launched a war on the dragons, and the capital was destroyed by the force led by Sakuya.

Indeed, the one who burnt it down was Sakuya herself.

As she walked through such a place, from all over, the goblins and orcs showed their faces. They seemed to think of Sakuya in her human form as mere food as they approached.

Those goblins and orcs were cleaved through by a single swing of her child’s arm.

“Who do you think you raise your blades against, you lowly curs!?”

Sakuya stopped him from chasing and hunting down the ones who fled.

(… I’ve gotten more children who think of dragons as the strongest race on earth, looking down on the others.)

In their battles with humans, a greater number of dragons were beginning to think of themselves as the true rulers of the land. It was becoming a large worry for Sakuya.

Leading her child by the hand, Sakuya headed towards it.

What was once the very center of the city. In a now-broken fountain, with Fina at the center, then Rudel, Aleist, Luecke and Eunius, the statues of those who had contributed to Courtois’ heyday.

Sakuya brushed off the dust and sand, cleaning off only that spot to look at the statue of Rudel. It was dubious to say it resembled him to a great degree, but as long as people considered a representation of him, she couldn’t treat it poorly.

“… Rudel, I can barely remember your face anymore.”

Her memories from her youth gradually faded away.

The time she had spent with Rudel and Izumi, to Sakuya, it was no more than an instant. In the times that followed, after the two had gone, a little while later, Mystith and all the dragons who looked after her were gone as well.

Before she knew it, Sakuya was the one leading the dragons, and their relations with humans were breaking down.

It was all far too painful for her.

The child gazed at Sakuya before looking at the statue,

“I can’t believe you ever let some human ride your back. That’s crazy.”

Sakuya hid her face with her right hand, turning to the child.

“You’ve never ridden a human on your back before. No, you’ve never ridden a knight. When dragon and human hearts connect, they become a dragoon. It was once only normal.”

The child’s cheeks puffed up.

“Humans are incompetents with nothing but numbers. If it were up to us, we’d have burnt them all down.”

Sakuya took the words with sorrow; she felt the reality of how wide the gap with humans must have grown for the dragons to develop that mindset.

There, the sky suddenly grew rowdy.

An ominous dark shadow overhead—impossible to make out whether they were living or dead, they had grown in numbers lately, those things that weren’t monsters, and one of them was being chased by a fighter plane.

The child shrugged his shoulders.

“One of those bugs that’ve been multiplying lately? Now that’s a good match for those pesky humans.”

That ominous something with the form of an arthropod was finally cornered and shot to death by the craft. But the plane was also shot and burst into flames.

“It’s going down.”

While the fighter plane continued on a downward trajectory somewhere, the pilot jumped from the cockpit with a parachute strapped on.

Oddly enough, right towards where Sakuya was.

As the pilot landed, the parachute draped over him, and as he squirmed his way out of it, he held a pistol in his hand.

The moment before her child swung his arm, Sakuya saw the pilot’s face and lowered a fist on her child’s head. She lowered it with enough power a vivid clang rung out.

“Mama, that hurt!”

“… I’m sorry. But wait.”

If she used only words, then surely the human before her eyes would be dead. The pilot seemed quite bewildered before Sakuya and the child.

He pulled off the helmet covering his head, removed his goggled and spoke. With distinctive silver hair and blue eyes, the pilot kept his pistol at the ready.

“Civilians? You’re in quite an odd place for that.”

The young man said, looking at the child’s large arms and observing the two of them. From a human’s eyes, there was no possible way Sakuya would be able to come here as lightly equipped as she was.

But with the young man before her, Sakuya burst into tears.

“A human life is short. But…”

The young man approached, his gun trained on Sakuya. While the child intimidated him, Sakuya held up a hand to put it to a stop.

“Rudel.”

Touching a hand to the young man’s cheek, Sakuya muttered a name. The man seemed quite flustered, he jumped back to take distance.

“You’re not human. A form of monster? Or a new type of bug? Where did you learn my name?”

Hearing it wasn’t just his face but his name as well, Sakuya gave a small smile. She changed to her dragon form on the spot.

Upon seeing that massive dragon, Rudel’s eyes opened in surprise. However, he didn’t show any fear.

He looked on with pure intrigue.

“A dragon!? Moreover, the lord of the Dragon Den!”

Sakuya rested Rudel on her hand and raised him into the sky.

‘I’ll deliver you somewhere close to where humans live. I once rode a fine human on this back. This is the least I could do to return the favor.’

From the palm of her hand, Rudel looked up at Sakuya.

“A dragoon!? I never thought they actually existed… how interesting, then let me ride on your back too.”

How brazen could he be? The child returned to dragon form, flying to Sakuya’s side as he complained at Rudel.

‘Don’t get in over your head, human! Who do you think you’re talking to!? Do you think mama would let a dirty lowlife like you rest on her back!?’

But Sakuya exchanged words with the man.

‘You know of the dragoons, you know of the world, yet still, you wish to ride on my back?’

Rudel struck his right hand to his chest.

“Of course. You’re far stronger than a fighter plane. If I ride you, I can annihilate those blasted bugs!”

Even now, her child was poised to attack ay any minute. His fangs bared, his eyes wide open, he would kill the man at the slightest opportunity.

Rudel went on.

“And the small stuff doesn’t really matter. I just want to ride on your back!”

Sakuya laughed.

A human life is short. But they go in cycles… Those were the words of Mystith, who had once lost Marty to gain a new partner in Lena.

Finally understanding what she meant, Sakuya brought her hand to her back and set Rudel onto it.

‘Very well. Then ride me you will… new-age dragoon.’

‘Mama!’ the child cried out.

Once Rudel was on her back, he spread his arms wide and smiled.

“Yes! I feel right at home. Like this, I’ll be able to annihilate any bug that comes my way!”

And so the first dragoon in several hundred years would forge a new legend—but that is another story.

    Thanks for the chapter. Congrats for completing this series for Yoraikun.

    Now, my impression for this series. Actually, i think the author is falling in love with the character he made himself. You know who i mean. Its Izumi of course. And No, its not a praise. In the first arc, he made harem for Rudel. You want to say he didn’t even think anything of them? Fine. But Author intentionally made them fall for Rudel. Lilim, he made Rudel cancelled her engagement. Cattleya, and even that daughter of Dragoon Vice Captain (forgot her name). Not enough? Okay, Milliea (spelt right?), Fina, even sophina and Mii? But he seems to forgot about their situations completely. They became just some background characters. They just got 1 or at most 2 lines to say this final arc! And we back to my statement that he fall in love with his own character, Izumi. Yeah, you feel it? That he made everything to go Izumi’s way. His waifu. ‘Izumi is the best! Time for japanese original heroine to take the stage! I’ll make my waifu to be the most happy!’. ‘You don’t like it? Too bad, its MY own work. I’ll do as i want! Huahahaha! Izumi-taaan~’. I thought whats on his mind when he write this last arc. I know he made Rudel just have his mind on Dragon and a little for Izumi. If thats the case, he shouldn’t make other girls fall for him in the first place. I am not really mad because harem ending is gone, but more because he neglects other characters for his own lust. He made Aleist to be some sort of scapegoat to quell our mind of the harem. So shameless. Even worse, there is no resolution! What, its ended just like that? okay, you made Izumi win the war, but what the other girls thought? At least make a line saying they gave up or approved or whatever! But nothing. He satisfied after making his waifu happy. And for his jealousy for his other character (Rudel) , he didn’t even mention Izumi’s life with Rudel after that!No kids, no marriage life, nothing! So disgusting. He even made Leucke and Aleist have kids already. He never tied any loose ends. Other than what i already mention, what about :
    -How Sakuya have kids? She could split herself? Lay eggs herself? Dragons can lay eggs on their own? Nvm, not important to him
    -How about Aileen after that?
    -Erselica?
    -Chlust?
    -How about Fritz? You summoned him to the past, and then just leave it? Why he named himself as Aleist? Hah! Who cares
    -What happened to Izumi’s background? In the beginning, he made Izumi’s country as a mysterious country in the east. He told us that the katana Rudel gave her is some sort of great katana from a great smith from her country. And then? Vanish. Poof. You made her as a main girl but she didn’t have any background? Pfft
    All in all. My thoughts about this series is, its good. Really. But the author became obsessed with his waifu and destroyed it. Silver lining is, his other works, Seven is great. So i’ll just made myself believe that he returned to normal after he made his waifu Izumi happy. Thanks for whoever read this. Its just my frustrated rambling

    • Yoraikun says:

      I’m not seeing it. I think it’s more a subversion of the harem trope in that the main character remains faithful to one girl from beginning to end. Izumi’s country was never mysterious, and she already gave her circumstance, which played a major role in not marrying Rudel until Chlust made the Arses House recover. You can already infer what happened to Chlust. Izumi herself, like the other women, is never the focus of anything, not any scene or any exceptional dialogue. The narrative dotes on Fina far more than her, to which the joke is that Fina’s plan to marry Rudel will never succeed. Therefore, besides the fact she marries Rudel in the end, something anyone could have seen from a mile away, it would be exceptionally difficult to say she got the limelight at any point in the story. Aleist is the real main heroine in that regard. Rudel should have just married Aleist, it’d have solved all his harem problems, no doubt. The Katana plotpoint was what led to the construction of Rudel and Aleist’s swords and armor, important items to the very end.
      I do think the Dragoon Brigade women get the shaft, I’ll concede that. Though Cattleya and Lilim didn’t particularily harbor romantic feelings towards him, so this only really includes Enora, who I’ll agree is pretty much forgotten. The other women are mostly after his petting, not him. This is Rudel’s story, and you know who he ends up with.
      Aleist isn’t a scapegoat, he’s the butt of a running joke. Do you think the readers or the author are shallow enough to go, oh there’s a harem, then the story’s A-OK.
      Fina describes what will happen to Aileen. She’s kept alive but barely.
      You already know how Fritz ends up, a forgotten hero. He did not take Aleist’s name, it’s described right in the hero’s chapter that the diary is referring to someone named Aleist, not the diary holder himself. This means from the start it had to be someone who knew Aleist, not someone using his name.

      Let’s look at it like this. Take the fact Izumi marries Rudel away. Do you think any portion of any of the text dotes on her besides the fact she’s usually somewhere around for her job?

        Agreed with all your statements. But like i said, not enough resolution. Izumi’s circumstances just explained as she is from a faraway places. No more than that if not a little more. Lilim DID in love with Rudel. So is Cattleya imo. Why you didn’t think so? Chlust’s is explained as a passing breeze. Just like ‘he’s fine’. Aileen is the same. And Fritz, didn’t you curious about why he wrote that diary with Aleist’s name? The dairy’s content is mostly unknown too

        • Yoraikun says:

          Lilim didn’t love Rudel, she was affected hard by his petting, but not romantic affection. She’d also outlive him by a few hundred years. Cattleya showed nothing more than some respect and a big-sisterly need to make sure he didn’t do something crazy.
          I really can’t take the Izumi is Mai Waifu theory seriously when she’s one of the blander characters even in her own series. As for her family circumstances, she technically fulfilled all the goals she laid out: become a high knight, marry someone with high standing.
          I concede Chlust is mentioned in passing, but he did show his talent, which was enough for Rudel to shove everything onto him.
          I’m not curious as to why Fritz mentioned Aleist in his diary. I see it more as a tragedy. In the end of his journey discovering his life, the specific passage is

          “Hmm… so who is he? This lost hero?”

          “… Hardie. It says right here, Aleist Hardie.”

          “… Eh?”
          “Hey, doesn’t that… creepy!”

          “I’m just saying it as it is; ‘The hero is Aleist Hardie’.”

          That’s not him saying his name is Aleist Hardie, it’s him making a statement. If the conclusion the hero who gave way to the Kingdom came to at the end of his life is ‘The hero is Aleist Hardie,’ that’s just really sad.

          I do think the series has a lot, and I mean a lot of problems. This series is permanently dropped for a reason. I just don’t think Izumi is to blame for it.

          Sorry for the late reply. I am working right now. Found some time in between. But anyway, did you forget that Rudel saved Lilim from her berserk dark elf mode? Then said some killing word protagonist would say to swoon heroines?I even forgot Rudel pet her. And about Fritz, thats some forced logic man. Lol. The author clearly want to confused us about that name in the dairy. And we would just said Fritz write it just like that? The contents of the diary is even unreadable. Just name Aleist. Why? If its sentences, with Aleist name in between, i would concede. But he wrote it at the corner. Like you would write your own name in a report. Its like, Author changed his mind from sacrificing Aleist to Fritz. He want the final Arc to be a battle of White Knight and Black Knight working together. ‘it would be dope’ he thought. Btw, did you concede too that Izumi’s background is lacking? Why she end up in Cortouis? To find husband? Why so far away? Did she actually running away from home? And then, did Izumi’s country that far away that we just know about two people originated from there? If we compare Dragoon to Sevens, you could find that Sevens explained the background of all people as detailed as possible. Even the side ones

        • Yoraikun says:

          No, it’s not a leap of logic, it literally said in a few chapters after that, that the text refers to Aleist in the third person, and Aleist is probably not the author. It’s literally spelled out to you. It’s clear the author never intended to sacrifice Aleist. No need for leaps of logic:

          ‘There were places where the old paper had been ruined and rendered illegible, but Pasette was curious about the last page. Alongside a message to entrust the Holy Sword to whoever found it, it gave Aleist’s name. Pasette had thought it was the name of the diary’s author.

          But would they really write their name like that on the last page? It bothered her.’

          Also, in English, you don’t sign your name as ‘The Hero is Aleist Hardie’. That is a clear statement, not a reference to one’s self.

          So that point is kinda moot.

          You’re forgetting what was revealed of Izumi’s actual background, which while lacking does answer every question you posed.

          “… We lost the coup. My clan can no longer get involved with politics. And the persecution may get worse… in short, we want to emigrate. But even so, my clan is a line of military men. If we get a high knight out of our family, it won’t just be a temporary knight status, our clan will be recognized as a knight lineage.”

That means after he fought to protect the people from the Gora, after all his accomplishments, he conceded he was never the hero, the Hero was Aleist all along. He died alone in a secluded cave, belittling himself. That is the sad end of his days. Yes, so much for his life.

      The thing is while Dragoon has the romance tag in it, I feel like the Harem/Other love interests were always the butt of the Author’s jokes. You never see the love interests really involved other than in backup roles or joke roles whereas Rudel and Aleist showed more chemistry with each other than any other of the love interests all combined. Rudel is a dragon fanatic who constantly got into trouble with ladies DUE to his research on how to pet dragons and we all know how Aleist constantly complains about the Harem. It is more surprising to actually see Izumi and Rudel had hooked up at the end cause there was barely any development on that field IMO. Mostly Izumi was a babysitter who admired how Rudel aspired to be a dragoon.

      • That hiatus explains alot about the near disappearance of Rudel’s potential ‘harem’ members. At a guess it was around the time the story starts to increasingly focus on political maneuvering.
        There are some disappointing issues. But that just says to me that readers were so immersed in the story that the reduced roles of their personal favourite characters upset them that much.

    Ah,,,at last its complete. Thanks yorai-kun.
    Well, I feel lonely with this kind of ending, but at least its peaceful, though many good characters wasted in the end without any explanation of their ending…I feel sorry for them. Bennet, Milim, Cattleya etc, I think they deserved good ending and explanation of their romance fate.
    And this ending is make me uncomfortable because of one great mystery for me, how can Sakuya has a child? who is the father? I bet its not just a random dragon right? because she deserved the best one as her lover. And that human form, we need so many explanation…Agghhh!!!! In the end I can’t say that I’m satisfied with this ending.

    On one hand, it was nice to see it end well, if a bit bittersweet. I’m sort of wondering who the father of Sakuya’s child was as well, and if descendants of the other characters were at least alive and well aside from Rudel’s spiritual reincarnation/rebirth.

    On the other, my main disappointment with the series is that Rudel didn’t gain a modest harem, considering his legendary petting skills. That was the only complaint I have with this series really. I was expecting it to be a little more like Sevens, in that he does gain a proper harem, and led to a sizable successor family of free-spirited Dragoons who continued the ancient pact even as technology advanced and Dragoons and Dragons themselves were cast aside. I’m not expecting something as grand as a Dragonic Kingdom or the like, but at least a community of descendants who carried on the will and desires of Rudel and his wives.
