Among sergeants, everyone praised Han with high remarks. Everyone pitied that he had such low psychic talent that blocked him from continuing forward.
He maintained his distance against the skull mask. He maintained the furthest distance he could mange. The skull mask approached him using his teleportation skill twice. The skull mask had become restless from Han's words.
"However, the result of this battle is a miracle. They had to fight against werewolves and Elu hunters without any special gear, and still, not one death resulted."
The Elu mage commanded them to stop chasing after the youths. The Elu warriors slowly returned, trudging. The Elu tribe had a more important task than chasing after intruders. Team Whiskey hid in a safe spot for a breather.
"A soldier who can stand against a dragon is not a genius who has never experienced defeat. It is the man of steel who has overcome challenges and went forward.."
England, and a few other countries, also ran their own psyker training schools. Of course, all advanced training was done through Ark.
A youth with blood dripping from his forehead shouted, all the while charging forward with his fists ready.
They appeared to be a pig-like turtle monster with low intelligence and simple attack patterns. Without an Elu to command them, they would just blindly throw frontal attacks.
No matter how many days passed, no matter how much training he received from Sergeant Red, it was useless. All the surrounding kids succeeded one by one. Kuro, whom Han was closest to, also succeeded.
The cameras attached to the tree branches moved. The cameras followed the squad members' every actions. The current competition was being broadcasted for everyone to see.
Han made a large sweeping motion with his spear to buy some time. Han ranked the best in close combat within class B. Everyone was already aware of this and didn't dare to carelessly attack.
He felt something chilling from behind. Han prepared himself for an attack, but he didn't feel any impact. Rather, the youth who had snuck up from behind had fainted, and a stone plopped onto the ground.
Kuro looked like he wanted to cry from the blow. There was a giant bruise on his leg. Han took a moment to catch his breath and stood in front of Kuro. Han helped Kuro up and spoke.
"The child's stress tolerance and mental strength is higher than an average adult's. His psychometric level is also surprising. Compared to children his age, his sense of responsibility is very high, and his sense of identity is strong."
Kuro gave a light salute and returned to his room. Han also returned to his room. Han laid down on his bed from fatigue. Drowsiness overwhelmed him. He organized all the elements of today's match carefully.
"That's a good question. The answer is hand-to-hand combat. In order to kill a single dragon, hundreds of psykers were sacrificed. Of course, the psykers back in the day were merely a little stronger than regular, common soldiers. Only a minority of psykers had the ability to give critical damage, the remaining psykers were used as meat shields. When the first dragon was killed about 500 psykers were sacrificed. When the second dragon was killed, 200. Upon the third dragon, 100. Only from the sacrifices of your seniors were we able to compile the data to kill the seventh dragon with only two casualties."
Silence was testing out the helmet by sending out all sorts of emoticons and messages.
They decided the order for the nightwatch and comfortably fell asleep. If the three of them stuck together, the remaining 4 days could be passed with success.
Kuro words were short, but stern. His determination seemed to make his strength exponentially stronger. A chilling psychic wave flowed like a tidal wave. The sand and dust from their surroundings began floating in the air.
"Our opponent had been Karlheinz, so I agreed. He wanted to copy you and deployed half of his rangers. He didn't think the rocky terrain penalty would affect the efficiency of his defenders."
'However, even if we send an aircraft to rescue the students, if we were to be hit by that stream of light then…'
"I like that side of Kuro. However, the Elus and werewolves will not allow it. There will come a time when Kuro must wield a weapon to attack his enemies. If he hesitates at an important moment, the result will be vastly different. It has been so in my own experiences."
