DP: 100391

Description
A demon lord and therefore a dungeon master. He has also become the King of the Dragons after slaying their previous monarch. The action has left the dragon’s village in a state of chaos, but Yuki neither knows nor cares. His stats are ridiculous, but as he had never been exposed to any sort of formal instruction, he lacks skill in the art of combat and often relies on brute force. He tends to have an easier time against enemies who share in his approach.

Yuki is married to the Supreme Dragon and has also engaged both his maid and a hero in a relationship that can be described as one of a romantic nature. He plans to marry the maid in a year. His intentions with regards to the hero (redacted).

He is a great help around the house. He can cook and clean as well as both look after and entertain children without any grievances or difficulty. He’s as handy as handymen get and enjoys DIY projects that inspire awe and passion in others. While the demon lord may appear to be the type to retort to the statements of others, he is in fact more often than not on the other end. That is, he leads others to make retorts, and is the reason that many of the retorts in question need to be made in the first place. He tends to enjoy himself most in the presence of others. When left to his own devices, he often runs out of ideas and gets bored.

While first impressions may make Yuki seem like an organized, logical thinker, he is in fact a shameless scatterbrain. The combination of his bold nature and his haphazard mind often lead to him getting carried away as a result of one of his own mental tangents. He is therefore best kept under supervision.

Titles
Supreme Dragon
Demon Lord’s Spouse

Description
Leficios, the Supreme Dragon, often goes by the nickname Lefi. At a fundamental level, she is both vain and conceited. However, her recent experiences have shuffled her priorities and led to a gradual shift in her nature. She is married to the Demon Lord named Yuki. Her knowledge of his ditzy side and the surprisingly fragile nature of his psyche has led her to swear a silent oath declaring that she would forever remain by his side in order to offer emotional comfort and support whenever it is necessary.

She gets along well with the dungeon’s other residents, and has even made a secret pact with Nell and Lyuu. The three have, without Yuki’s knowledge, sworn to aid each other in matters that concerned him.

The immense power that accompanies her status as the Supreme Dragon makes it difficult for her to perform tasks that require little to no force. This led her to often fail at housework. Her failures frustrated her and led her to hate any sort of chore, but she has lately endeavoured to overcome this weakness nonetheless.

 

Illuna
Race: Vampire

Description
A young, blonde haired, blue eyed, beautiful vampire. She is home to the dungeon’s most innocent and contagious smile. Despite her young age, Illuna is incredibly intelligent and able to make sound decisions on the fly. She met the King of Spirits during the earlier years of her childhood, who both taught her to manipulate his kin and blessed her with his divine protection. He did not, however, reveal his identity, as such, she is not aware of it.

Illuna’s best friend is Shii, the slime. The two often put their heads together and work out coordinated actions that they can perform together. With Enne thrown into the mix, their options have grown. They now find themselves looking to perform interesting acts of coordination that require three or more individuals.

One of the vampire’s favorite foods is Yuki’s blood, which she enjoys roughly once a week. The act of drinking blood brings out the seductress in her despite her tender age. She has lately begun working on bolstering her femininity in secret, as is normal for a girl her age.

 

Lyuuin Gyroll
Race: Warwolf

Description

Lyuuin Gyroll, commonly referred to as Lyuu, is a beastkin with shaggy brown hair and dog-like features in the form of ears and a tail. Though brought into the dungeon’s fold as a maid, she was completely useless at first. Nowadays, she’s become somewhat capable of doing her job; she still tends to fail if she allows her mind to wander.

She’s the daughter of her people’s chief. Her father ended up in a dispute with Yuki after finding that she’d become his maid. As a result of the two men settling their differences, she became the demon lord’s fiancee. The two are set to wed in a year. Her affection for him is real, and she is more than willing to become his wife. However, she has been holding back on expressing her feelings because she doesn’t want to hurt Lefi’s. Her relationship with Yuki’s other lover, Nell, was rocky at first. Lyuu feared the other girl given her status as a hero. Now, however, the girls get along as well as two peas in a pod.

 

Leila
Race: Sheep-horned Demon

Description
Leila has white hair, fair skin, and a pair of ram-like horns. As a maid, she is outstanding and capable of easily handling more than her fair share of work.

She is kind, easy-going, and dependable. The combination of these traits have led her to effectively serve as the dungeon’s resident big sister. However, that is only one side to her. Leila houses a burning thirst for knowledge and streak for curiosity. Her interest in both dungeon and dungeon master ecology has led her to observe Yuki without his knowledge. She has filled three notebooks with data and reports, and is currently working on a fourth. Paper is considered an expensive luxury, and she is extremely grateful that living in the dungeon has provided her with liberal access to it.

She thinks of Yuki in a much more favorable light than she does any ordinary man, but (redacted).

 

Zaien
Race: Magic Weapon

Description
Zaien, or Enne, as she is colloquially known, is Yuki’s signature weapon. She bears the form of a crimson katana and specifically falls within the odachi subcategory given the extraneous size of her blade. She is extremely heavy and near impossible to wield lest one happens to possess strength on par with a demon lord. Her stats are on par with some legendary weapons. One can only imagine her final form, as she still has much room for growth.

Enne is capable of producing a human-like avatar. In this form, she wears a set of clothes very much akin to a kimono. Even when personified, Enne is taciturn and only rarely openly expresses her emotions.

The sword is willing to do just about anything for her master and sulks when he uses any other weapon.

 

Nell
Race: Human
Class: Hero

Description
Nell is a hero affiliated with the Kingdom of Allysia. Her appearance often makes others mistake her for a tomboy when she is in fact much more of a girly girl at heart. Nell is good at housework, and has been tasked with helping Leila with meals.

She fell in love with Yuki after he rescued her from the brink of death, and has now entered into a romantic relationship with him.

Moving into the dungeon had been a drastic change for Nell. Her life there was so different from what it had been before that it had caused her to lose her bearings at first. She managed to adjust over time, and has come to enjoy the novelty that comes with the experience.

Spending time with the dungeon and its overly laid-back residents has poisoned Nell’s mind; she is slowly growing more and more careless with each passing day.

 

Dungeon-Affiliated Monsters

Shii
Race: Heal Slime

Description
Yuki’s first monster. Shii has learned to warp her body and take on a human form. Though slimes are technically genderless, Shii is treated as a female, and everyone in the dungeon loves and dotes on her. As per her race, she is capable of healing magic. Her spells can only heal physical wounds, but the dungeon’s residents have come to the agreement that her mere presence is able to heal mental ones.

Her best friend is Illuna, but she gets along with Lefi just as well given the dragon’s propensity to feed her mana.

Shii is in the process of learning speechcraft. She still appears to have a bit of a lisp, but can be easily understood regardless. Speaking everyday has led to an evident improvement in her skill level over time, and she is sure to continue to grow and mature.

 

Fluffrir
Race: Fenrir.

Description
Fluffrir, or Rir as he is often referred to, is a monster in Yuki’s servitude. He belongs to a race of legendary creatures and is, at least by some standards, a literal god. The fluffiness of his fur evidences that he is likely deserving of this title.

Rir is a commander. He is obeyed by both the other monsters Yuki has summoned and many of the Wicked Forest’s natives, who have sworn themselves to his servitude. Sadly, his position has done nothing to help his pessimistic nature. The many subordinates he has awaiting his orders has made every day a struggle, and his master’s unreasonable demands have not helped in the least. Still, Rir appreciates and even likes his master. The wolf has already grown accustomed to the demon lord’s propensity to become an undue cause of stress. His only notable grievance is that his master keeps calling him just to play with him and his fur.

 

Rei, Rui, and Lowe
Race: Wraith

Description
A trio of sisters under Yuki’s command, listed from oldest to youngest. All three are tomboyish in nature and enjoy playing pranks on others. This trait is especially evident in Lowe, who always takes things much further than the other two.

As incorporeal beings, the wraiths are not able to touch or be touched by anything without possessing the dolls allotted to them by their master.

 

Orochi
Race: Giant Blood Serpent

Description
A massive, serpentine monster under Yuki’s command with scales as red as blood. His hulking frame makes him the dungeon’s largest individual.

Orochi specializes in physical attacks backed by pure, destructive force. When working with the other three in his cohort, he serves as the primary source of damage as well as the front line. He is responsible for most of the team’s finishing blows.

 

Yata
Race: Dark Crow

Description
A massive crow-like monster under Yuki’s command with obsidian feathers as dark and beautiful as the night.

Yata specializes in making use of his viewpoint to seek out suitable foes and potential dangers. When working with the other three in his cohort, he serves as a scout, a lure, and a source of long-ranged damage.

 

Byakku
Race: Demonic Cat

Description
A two-tailed feline monster under Yuki’s command with sleek white fur.

Byakku specializes in illusion magic. When working with the other three in her cohort, she serves as a source of crowd control. She uses her magic in order to deceive her enemies and provide her allies with an edge.

 

Wsprit
Race: Water Spirit

Description
A translucent blue monster under Yuki’s command that looks very much like a bubbly lump of water. It has a somewhat similar appearance to Shii’s original form, but has much finer control over the manner in which it presents itself. It is even capable of splitting its body up into several pieces without incurring any damage. While a spirit in name, Wsprit is distinct from the spirits that Illuna is capable of calling.

Wsprit specializes in support magic. When working with the other three in her cohort, she serves as a backline mage.

 

Kingdom’s Citizens

Reiyd Glorio Allysia
Race: Human

Description
Reyid is Allysia’s reigning monarch. Though medicore and generally unaccomplished, Reiyd thought of amicably by most of his people.

He is busy putting out any remaining flames ignited by the conflict caused by his son’s brainwashing and uprising. Much to his chagrin, he is so busy that he even continues to work in his dreams. Adjectives that accurately describe him in his current state include: overworked, anxious, and stressed.

His daughter has recently grown to the point where she has started discussing her taste in men with him. These conversations have left him feeling more conflicted than anything else.

 

Iryll Glorio Allysia
Race: Human

Description
The king’s only daughter. Iryll was saved by Yuki whilst in the middle of being abused by the sexual deviant responsible for keeping watch over her and her father. She has thought of him as her hero and longed for him ever since.

 

Raylow Lurubia
Race: Human

Description
Raylow is Alfyro’s governor. He has come to be one of the king’s most trusted following his many accomplishments following the prince’s attempted uprising. He has recently been put in charge of managing the territories owned by many a treasonous, recently-executed governor. The rate at which his hairline has been receding has been increasing proportionally to the weight of his responsibilities. He is an unfortunate soul, but there is little that can be done for him. One can only pray that his circumstances may one day change for the better.

 

Gamdia Roston
Race: Human

Description
Gamdia is the commander of the order of knights in charge of maintaining Alfyro’s security. He was once a part of the team set on invading the Wicked Forest, but fled following the warning he received from Yuki. The incident hurt his reputation and left him without a job, but he wasn’t left in dire straights for long. He soon caught the attention of Raylow, who offered him his current position.

Alfyro’s proximity to the Wicked Forest and distance from the capital in general has led it to be filled with ruffians. And yet, Gamdia is shown respect nonetheless; he is extremely powerful for a human being. This, combined with his reliable nature, has made him Raylow’s right-hand man.

Gamdia’s life has been filled with many ups and downs, but he’s satisfied with where it’s led him.

 

Carlotta De Maya
Race: Human

Description
Carlotta is Nell’s boss and the commander of the Order of the Faldien Holy Knights, whose operations are based in Allysia’s capital, Alshir. As a commander, she is an exception amongst exceptions. She is strong-willed, beautiful, and contrary to what one would normally expect of an individual in her position, not very risk averse; her decisions and actions are bold, daring, and unconservative.

Opting to take the king’s side during the conflict has left the church, and Carlotta in particular, with a distressing amount of work. But rather than wiping the smile off the holy knight’s face, the workload has only served to broaden it. As a workaholic, Carlotta is happily chewing her way through everything sent her way.

      1. She’s a prominent target “Onee-sama!” of yuri-tinged affection, but has demonstrated no such tendencies herself that I can discern. Really, Lyuu seems the most dangerous in that respect.

  1. I don’t blame you for being unmotivated to TL a stats chapter, but it is a nice thing to read all the side commentary about the characters. And to refresh the memory or some of the lesser people as well. Keep up the exceptional work, and thanks for the chapter.

  2. I am waiting for when the Dragon village arc is. Since Yuki is now the King of Dragons, the Dragons should eventually come to look for him.

    In my mind I see this: Dragons look for him. They do not want him to be the king and want to take the throne. Yuki beats up one of the weaker Dragons that looked down on him. Just before chaos happens, Lefi appears. One idiotic Dragon does not realize who Lefi is. Idiotic Dragon gets pulped (maybe the same one Yuki pulped and thinks she is an easier target). The Dragons realize that Yuki is Lefi’s husband. They bow to him and treat him as their King and possible has a request for the husband of the Supreme Dragon/King of the Dragons.

    1. Well, the dragons do eventually come looking for him. There are two distinct factions among them, but nobody stupid enough to intentionally pick a fight with Lefi (very few smart enough to understand her feelings well enough to not offend her, though, which is why she never lived with them).

      The king of the dragons isn’t really a ‘king’, though. It really is just a title passed down automagically on certain conditions.

    1. I’m actually not a fan of stat sheets as a narrative device, though I recognize that they are important when you are depicting a close or disadvantageous fight. But Yuki is only going to be doing one-sided curb stomps for a good while. I think the next difficult fight he has is only difficult because he has to protect Nell while fighting, and it’s a few arcs away.

      Like

      1. Just started the arc you are probably talking about, not to the dragon arc yet. Reading it with google translate so I’m missing most of the details. As for stat sheets, I like them because they remind me of the old jrpgs.

      2. You should use the text to speech function. It not only helps with understanding, the dialog is a lot more flavorful when you can hear the different ways the characters talk.

  3. Are you going to release chapter 210 or others soon? I usually skip things like stat and character intro pages to get to the next exciting and funny chapter to continue the adventure of whatever LN/book I’m reading…

  4. Shouldn’t Yuki’s class be Dragon King instead of Dragon? I don’t know what it says in original, but he should get that class after default of the dragon that tried to court Lefi.

    Like

    1. It is written as dragon/demon lord to indicate that “lord” modifies both “dragon” and “demon.” At least that’s how I always interpreted that. It was written the same way quite a few chapters ago ever since he first checked his stats after that fight. He also received a related title, but that is written in a different manner, instead having the two parts split by a semi colon, with one part being “king” instead of “lord” and not being “of judgement.”

      Like

  5. Yup, this kind of chapter is not all that great. Sure it’s not worthless, but can’t compare to the story, thus more effort for less taste. Still, a good read.
    Thanks for the awesome translation! God bless you!

    Like

    1. There’s no way it’s as hard as translating Lefi’s archaic dialog. Or Yuki’s shitlording it up. It seems like all the characters have their own idiom to an extent. Nell’s country gal would be fun to reproduce, but too jarring, especially considering that Lyuu is even more of a hick.

      I think that ST really puts a lot of effort into making that come through without being ridiculous.

  6. I’m worried about having a stats page that lists minor characters. Will they come back? I have seen other novels that have minor characters that play a big role, get remembered for what they do, and never get mentioned again! Hopefully they come back. I’m glad that Lyuuin’s dad is not in the list. That means to me it’s a one and done kinda thing. Maybe friends attack Lyuuin’s home, have a touching scene, fathers die, then revenge plot.

    Any thanks for the chapter.

    1. All characters mentioned will continue to show up in later chapters.

      Not even sure how you’re assessing any of them as “minor”, really. The war with the Fiend faction and their Imperial backers hasn’t been resolved yet and will become much wider before it is settled. Lyuu’s people do play a part in the war.

      Like

      1. Got it thanks. My thoughts on a minor character is geared towards characters given a name, help point the MC in a direction and then never heard from again. Seen several novels that do this. One novel that comes to mind is Skeleton Knight. There several minor characters that would seem like they play a big role… yet once they do their part in the story, they are soon forgotten, never to be mentioned again.
        Just worried about it. I’m glad that these characters though will still play a part in the future.

        Still think I’m fine with Lyuuin’s dad staying out of the picture, he is annoying in a bad way.

  7. Saying that Iryll was “being abused by the sexual deviant” has certain implications in English that I feel may not be fully justified by the original text. I’d rephrase it as “being tormented by the sexual deviant” or perhaps even “interrogated/accosted/threatened”.

    I’d have gone with “tortured”, but I feel like that’s beyond what the original says, even though I feel it’s the most accurate description.

    Like

      1. Um…no. I get what you’re saying, but “sexual abuse” implies more than his enjoyment of the situation. Saying that she was being tortured/tormented/interrogated/etc. by a sexual deviant already implies that he was getting off on it, without the additional implications of using the term “abuse”.

        It may just be a failing on the part of the author, but Iryll demonstrates no signs whatsoever of having been sexually abused.

        Like

      2. That’s unfortunately not a useful definition from a legal or therapeutic standpoint.

        What matters in “abuse” is the production of an aberrant effect on the victim. From a legal standpoint, it is impossible to prosecute based on whether the perpetrator “got off” on something. From a therapeutic standpoint, we are only interested in the victim anyway.

        Also, by that definition, Yuki is also sexually abusing Illuna by letting her suck his blood. While Yuki is a degenerate who is in transparent denial about his lolicon tendencies (a sexual deviant), it’s too weird to cast him as engaged in the same category of behavior as the guy who tortured Iryll. In other words, reading Yuki as the sexual deviant who abused Iryll is an entirely valid interpretation (and even preferred).

        Iryll was apparently not aware of any sexual dimension to her torture, and it produced no aberrant effect on her sexuality. She shows no symptoms of having been abused. As a character description, it feels very unfaithful to the established narrative.

        I also don’t feel the original text explicitly states she was abused rather than tormented.

        Of course you are free to translate according to your own preferences, in fact legally speaking you are safer characterizing this as a derivative fan work rather than a translation. I’m simply pointing out that saying Iryll was “abused by the sexual deviant” has implications which contradict the rest of the story.
