ITDO - Chapter 15 - A Transmigrator’s Proper Position

Asides from the elven army stationed within the Silver Moon Kingdom, most elven warriors fought in small groups and employed guerrilla tactics. This made them particularly suited for attacks in the forest as against the plains, where they’d likely lose to humans or beastmen.

However, each elf was quite powerful on their own, and they possessed a keen eye for taking advantage of the terrain. Though their low fertility rates made it hard for them to invade other territories, they were more than enough for them to defend their own home grounds.

In the forest outskirts of the Forest of the Moon, the elves had prepared for conflict with the humans. They banded together in groups of ten to a hundred and waited for the human legion to arrive before cutting through the battlefield with their superior individual abilities and cooperation.

But this time, the perennial war between humans and elves took a different turn.

The elves had far better eyesight than the humans, and so they could notice the battle taking place in the distance. They saw the terrifying dragon descend on the battlefield before commencing its massacre of the human army, and even the powerful legendary rank warrior of the Theocracy’s Holy Iris Order Commander died fruitlessly. Even if the dragon was there to help them, the elves could not help but feel a deep terror in their hearts and chill in their bones. Some even bemoaned the tragic fates of the humans.

This was the instinctive fear of the weak in the face of the strong. However much they tried to climb up the ranks and raise their abilities, they could do nothing but fear those powerful forces who could treat them like ants.

“That dragon looks like it's going to ‘Central City’. What should we do?”

On top of a tall tree, two elven scouts were hiding among the dense branches and leaves. As rangers, they had even better eyesight and were able to observe the entire battlefield.

The elves were known for their elegance and beauty. Even ordinary female elves were beauties in the eyes of other human-like races with similar aesthetics.

“The other scouting squads have already reported the intelligence to the upper echelon. We just have to wait for the news…… Lady Silver Moon, that giant dragon is too terrifying. I have seen dragons before, but this is my first time seeing one that big. Just looking at it is enough to paralyze anyone. I don’t want to fight against such a creature.”

One of the female elves patted her chest. Her voice still trembled at the sight before her.

“That is a demigod dragon. If we fought against him, it would inconvenience him the same way you’d be bothered if something were stuck in your teeth. This is the first time I have heard of one of its kind. Could it be an ancient dragon that lived for many years and has only just awakened?”

The other elf also showed a terrified look, and her neck subconsciously shrunk back.

At this moment, a metal badge on her chest shook. The elf collected her expression as she solemnly faced the badge. It emitted a green glow and transmitted the message directly to her mind.

“Orders from General Sisna. We are to ride to ‘Central City’ on hippogryphs!”

Although neither of the two elves wanted to see the terrifying dragon, military orders could not be disobeyed. The two looked at each other and nodded. They pinched their fingers and whistled.

The distant trees swayed slightly. Two giant eagle-like creatures stretched their gorgeous wings and flew over after hearing the sound. The two elves quickly stood up, and at the same time, more than a thousand similar eagles rose from the forest. They quickly turned into black shadows as they advanced following the dragon.

…...

Although Louie was huge, he wasn’t the least bit slow. It did not take long before the city was completely displayed in his sights.

From a high altitude, he could tell that it was built within a valley in a mountain range. Even Louie, with his demigod vision, and at an altitude of thousands of meters could not see the limits of the mountainous landscape before him. The mountain range seemed to split the continent in two

Towering mountains and precipitous ridges were littered over the terrain, and traversing it would be dangerous for anyone, to talk less of it being conducive for human survival. Despite that, however, someone had built a city smack in the middle. Louie did not know much about wartime strategy, but he could understand that the city was a key location in contested land. Whosoever held it could attack and retreat with ease.

Compared to the metropolises on earth, the city before him was rather small. Louie could make out its edges from the altitude he flew at, and its technology only seemed to exist at the medieval level. Nevertheless, Louie knew that its strength definitely exceeded the cities of medieval Earth due to the existence of magic and other extraordinary powers.

“No wonder it’s called Central City. Even if it’s not at the center of the continent, it's definitely a transportation hub.”

Louie gazed at the city from the sky. He could see dense black dots quickly moving. Presumably, the city’s inhabitants had noticed him and started a commotion.

Even if his body was thousands of meters in the air, his massive frame could still convey an idea of his size.

“Well, there’s not much time left. Let’s see if I can get rid of this city.”

Thinking like this, Louie did not hesitate in the slightest as he swooped down.

Louie’s initial intention was to do low-key transmigration. He honestly wanted to find a deep mountain forest to nest and hide in until he became strong enough. Only then would he come out of the mountains. That was the right thing to do as a transmigrator.

But because of the contract and because of the deceptive intelligent brain, Louie could not make his ideas come true. In order to complete the contract to defeat the human army, he would have to act in a high-profile manner from the beginning.

Louie’s mind raced. After finding out that his strategy of building high walls, accumulating grains, and slowly becoming king could not be implemented, he immediately decided on a new approach to combat.

Since his ultimate goal was his own safety, then he would be completely high-profile and more confident. He would show the world his matchless power, slaughter the human army, slap the powerful legendary rank warrior to death like a dog, and cause the fall of an important city. This would truly demonstrate his demigod might.

For this reason, Louie pretended that he was really a long-lived dragon with its pride, warped sense of honor, and incomprehensible persistence.

Still, the fact that he had to constantly speak in an arrogant tone made him feel uncomfortable. Nevertheless, he had to deal with it.

Louie was only a baby dragon at the moment. This power as a demigod was only borrowed from the divine power left inside the godhood. This was not his true ability and could only be used as a trump card.

Under this situation, the best way for Louie to show his strength was to display unbeatable power, so that others would fear him and hesitate before daring to retaliate. This way, even if he appeared as a baby dragon, others would only think that this was his bad taste and not his true appearance.

What Louie wanted to do was to spread fear and awe that would provide him a relatively safe space to live!

Who would dare provoke a demigod dragon? Who would ever imagine that the terrifying Demigod dragon was just a baby?
